Setting

This drama attempts to answer the question of whether two people can be in love only on paper. It also explores the meaning of the family by presenting that no matter how hard the present may seem, the world is still a good place to live on because of those who bring hopes into our lives through their presence alone.

This drama features diverse characters: considerate, caring, frank, patient, and sticking to life’s basic values. But no matter how different the personalities, everyone finds happiness in the end.

This drama is based upon a manhwa of the same title, Full House by the Korean author Won Sooyeon.

Plot Summary

Han Ji-Eun lives in a house called Full House, built by her father. She is an aspiring script writer. One day, her two best friends, for money reasons, trick her into believing she has won a free vacation, and while she is gone, they sell her house. On the plane, she meets Lee Young-Jae, a famous actor. Through comedic events they get acquainted during her vacation, and when she returns, she discovers her house has been sold to him.
Though they don't get along with each other, as she is messy and he has a bad temper and likes cleanliness, they agree to live with each other. At first, Ji-Eun works as his maid in order to buy her house back, but later, because of Young-Jae's wish to make the love of his life, Kang Hye-Won (Han Eun Jung) jealous, they get married. They set up a contract for the marriage to last six months. During that time, complications arise and Ji-Eun and Young-Jae become attracted to each other. Also, Ji-Eun starts to feel a strong bond with Young-Jae's family. However, Young-Jae's bad temper, along with the romantic attentions of Yoo Min-Hyuk (Kim Sung Soo), Ji-Eun's handsome and friendly publisher, starts to create a rift between the couple. So does Hye-Won, who starts to feel jealous when she sees Young-Jae and Ji-Eun getting close. Eventually, Young-Jae and Ji-Eun get a divorce and he moves away.
When he returns, he realizes that Ji-Eun hasn't married yet and knows that he has fallen in love with her - and she with him. He proposes to her, this time for the right reasons, and finally, they get married for a second time.

Characters

Han Ji-Eun Song Hye Kyo

Ji-Eun is the main female character of the drama. She is shown as an optimistic and cheerful girl, loyal to her friends. Though naive and not very smart, she is shown as a character with spunk and a good heart as displayed in her efforts to be a writer. Through the course of the drama, she slowly begins to fall in love with Young-Jae. She lives in a beautiful home named Full House (thus the inspiration for the title of the drama), which she inherited from her late parents. Her troubles starts when her closest friends trick her by sending her on a trip to Shanghai so they could sell her house behind her back and take the money. After Ji-Eun returns, she finds she has nowhere to go. The owner of the house is now movie star Lee Young Jae, whom she encountered earlier in Shanghai, and she agrees to become his wife and personal maid to work back ownership of her house.

Lee Young-Jae Rain

Young-Jae is the leading male character and a popular Korean actor, especially around girls. Though appearing to be egotistical and stubborn, mostly to maintain his pride, he has secret unrequited feelings for his childhood friend, Hye-Won. However, this starts to change as he meets Ji-Eun and slowly falls in love with her. He also has a fragile relationship with his father, who is a doctor. Young-Jae also had a sister who died as a child.

Kang Hye-Won Han Eun Jung

Hye-Won is a close family friend of Lee Young-Jae, knowing them since childhood. Working as a fashion designer, she also designs most of Young-jae’s clothes. With her rich family and attractive appearance, she is accustomed to attention from men, but has ever only loved Yoo Min-Hyuk, though she later falls for Young-Jae.

Yoo Min-Hyuk Kim Sung Soo

Min-Hyuk is a ladies' man. He is smart, skillful and respected, but remains detached from most people because of his busy lifestyle. He is also close friends with Young-Jae, who confides in him his feelings for Hye-Won. Later he also starts developing feelings for Ji-Eun. Min-Hyuk is a director of a large media company. Like Hye-Won, he is attractive and used to attention from women.

Filming location

Full House was filmed in the Gwangyeok-si area of Incheon. Located near Incheon International Airport, the place may be reached in a ten-minute boat ride from Sammok Harbor to this quiet, seashore getaway. Unlike other filming locations in Korea, this is an actual house. Made mostly of wood, this house, which is a private-owned vacation house, cost approximately the equivalent of one million United States dollars to be built. The beach front property looks out onto open waters, with elegant views that could be used on any postcard. Many fans of the miniseries make a pilgrimage to this now famous home. Nearby sightseeing locations include Jogak (sculpture) Park on Modo Island; a bridge connects these two islands.

The first episode was shot in Shanghai near The Bund. In later episodes some parts were filmed in Thailand.
