How to Buy a Friend’s story revolves around ordinary high school student Park Chan Hong (played by Lee Sin Young), who has a knack for writing. He doesn’t have any dreams for his future, but he gets pressured by his parents regarding his studies and his future prospects. He is also a victim of bullying.
His popular friend Eom Se Yoon (Kim So Hye) who goes to the same school as him, and takes a liking to Park Chan Hong. Heo Don Hyuk (played by Shin Seung Ho) is Park Chan Hong’s classmate, who is not interested in studies and earns money to make a living for himself.
One day when Park Chan Hong was getting bullied, Heo Dong Hyeok stepped in to save him. In return, Don Hyeon asked for a favor. He asked to borrow 300,000 won from Chan Hong to pay for rent. Chan Hong agreed and lent the money to Don Hyeok, but that money he gave Don Hyeok was for his private tuition fees. Since he can’t go to the tuition anymore, Chan Hong decides to accompany Don Hyeok and spend his days with him.
