Starring Kim Rae-won, Jung Da-bin, Choi Yoon-jin and Lee Hyun-woo, romantic comedy "Rooftop Room Cat" not only achieved outstanding prime-time viewership numbers in 2003, but also drums up considerable buzz about having sexual relationship before marriage in Korea.

There seems to exist a cause-effect relationship among love, sex and marriage. Apathetic young man Kyung-min (Kim Rae-won), however, has never given a thought to the question until he loses Jeong-eun (Jung Da-bin), an optimistic high school fresh graduate Kyung-min lives together with. Miscalculating his love towards Hye-ryun (Choi Yoon-jin), Kyung-min claims his love to Hye-ryun while boarding with Jeong-eun in a rooftop room that he helps pay rent for her to gear up for his bar-exam. Jeong-eun, on other hand, stirs her boss (Lee Hyun-woo) as they work closely in an advertising agency. While each has a so-called outside lover, the unspoken love driven by jealousy of the young couple grows with the endless fights in a little rooftop room in a big city Seoul.
Offering a light comic touch and reflecting contemporary attitudes towards love and relationships, this original internet novel by Kim Yu-Ri has gained wide popularity with audiences in their 20's and 30's. The story revolves around Jung-Eun (Jung Da-Bin), a charming, independent girl. Due to economic difficulties, she shares her small rooftop room with a guy named Kyung-Min (Kim Rae-Won). Their lives are put to a hard test after Jung-Eun starts falling in love with Kyung-Min...

Marriage is thought to be the final conclusion of love: the most precious value in this world. But in reality, the marriage is not so sweet as recklessly imagined. Instead of being a sweet dream, the marriage in reality is a commitment and a promise to live among many kinds of obligation and sacrifice. It is rather the end of love than a sweet beginning. This is not what the lovers are aiming about. It’s not marriage but living love they are shooting for. This is a drama of couple who has found a new way of living happily in Love.
