Bachelor’s Vegetable Store
“Bachelor’s Vegetable Store” is based on the true story of Lee Young-Suk, who started selling vegetables at a small store in 1998, and now owns over 40 Chonggakne Vegetable Stores nationwide.
Han Tae-Yang is a talented, but unemployed young man with big dreams and a huge chip on his shoulder, who falls in love with a young woman named Mok Ga-On, but Ga-On grew up with a family secret that threatens her family’s stability. Lee Seul-Woo is Tae-yang’s best friend, a wealthy heir who grew up without a father and comes to work at Tae-yang’s vegetable store. Seul-Woo himself is crushing on a spoiled young chaebol girl, Jung Dan-Bi, and complications ensue, especially when she’s got her eye on Tae-yang instead of Seul-woo. Also assisting Tae-yang in his quest for Vegetable Dominance are his hyungs Nam Yoo-Bong, Jung Ki-Young Yoon Ho-Jae and Lee Chan-Sol. Our story is set during the turbulent early 1990s, when unemployment was rampant in South Korea and young adults were desperate for any way to make a living — so why not open a vegetable stand in the midst of a crushing depression? With these young, gorgeous guys ready to show off their ‘assets,’ how can they not succeed?!?
