5 POINTS PICTURES Announces the May 2013
DVD Release of PENNY PINCHERS

Comedy starring SONG Joong-ki & HAN Ye-seul

to feature new English-language subtitles & translated video extras.

GRIMES, Iowa, Jan. 30, 2013 – Film distributor 5 Points Pictures is pleased to announce the DVD release of PENNY PINCHERS will be available on May 21, 2013.

Also known as “Penny Pinching Romance” (or티끌모아 로맨스), this South Korean comedy stars SONG Joong-ki (A Werewolf Boy, TV’s Nice Guy and Sungkyunkwan Scandal) and HAN Ye-seul (a.k.a Leslie KIM, TV’s Couple or Trouble and Spy Myung-wol). Penny Pinchers was the feature film debut of KIM Jung-hwan – who both directed the film and wrote its original screenplay – and produced by INDIESTORY Inc., in association with iHQ Inc. It is presented by Filament Pictures and CJ Entertainment.

“definitely one of the best Korean romantic comedies of the last year or so… 
it’s a big hearted and winning affair that should be enjoyed both by fans
and those who normally steer clear of this sort of fare.”

– James Mudge, BeyondHollywood.com

5 Points Pictures’ release of Penny Pinchers will feature an upgraded English translation of the film, plus more than 30 minutes of translated and subtitled video extras from the South Korean limited-edition release.

About PENNY PINCHERS

Ji-woong (SONG Joong-ki, A Werewolf Boy) can’t get a job, survives on an allowance from his mom and is content to cruise through life on his looks and ability to talk a good game. But his freewheeling ways screech to a halt when his family cuts him off and his landlord (finally) evicts him. That same day, salvation arrives in the form of Hong-sil, a mysterious girl with an unusual proposal: “Want to make some money? Then do everything I say.”

Hong-sil (HAN Ye-seul, Spy Myung-wol TV) is a modern-day Scrooge who’s dedicated her life to the accumulation of cash, whether that means selling empty glass bottles for profit or steering clear of anything that costs money – from boyfriends to getting sick!

Hong-sil’s extreme savings plan is progressing at full speed, until she discovers one of her schemes will require a bank account that is under someone else’s name. So, in exchange for Ji-woong’s assistance, she takes him on as her roommate and “apprentice,” and an unusual penny-pinching partnership is forged.

Includes the feature film plus more than 30 minutes of video extras, all with on/off English subtitles!
