English Title: Shopping King Louie / Shopaholic Louie
First Aired: 2016-Sep-21 to 2016-Nov-10
Louie is the heir of Golden group who unfortunately got in an accident and lost his entire memory, that's also makes him so dependable to his saviour Go Bok Shil. Louie has a remarkable skill in shopping and memorizing brands, both result good and bad to Bok Shil life. Louie adventure to be able to get his memory back really intriguing, touching yet so hilarious to watch.
Not just because he lost his memories that Louie character became so naive, but originally Louie really a kind heart person and loving man, he can't do bad thing even to people who did bad toward him. The adventure of Louie from struggling living in the poor rooftop with Go Bok Shil until end up found his place back as a third generation Gold group and realize his love toward Bok Shil is really interesting to watch. You will find, that in this real life, there is no man that can act, do or think like Louie did in this drama.
Louie friendship with his new neighbor, Jo InSung also surprisingly hilarious to see. I was not thinking that this neighbor turns out to have interesting character that adding the best fun moment on Louie journey. Despite of Jo InSung mother who is always bitchy and harsh, but afterall she also not a bad person at all.
I love how this drama develop each person's character, from bad, struggle to a better person. That goes for BokShil who was a villager turn into a good office worker then business owner, Cha JoongWoon who is a loner then learning about friendship in a very weird way from Louie, then there is also the main villain Baek SunGoo (Baek Mari's father) who finally regret he do bad thing to Louie.
All story plots runs naturally in this drama, which very much great to watch, great ending also.
