Jong may be clever, but he was so awkward when it comes to dealing with women. After his girlfriend broke up with him, Jong got into all sorts of troubles. A chance encounter put him under the radar of Shirley Li, the daughter of Li Kun, one of the richest men in China. Shirley quickly became obsessed with him and hinted at the possibility of a long-term relationship. She whisked him away to America on a whirlwind honeymoon tour, but little did he know that there was a hidden agenda behind her apparent affection. Meanwhile, Jong met an American student Marvey who worked for the Li's. Charming, kind and optimistic, she was someone who truly took his breath away. Was he going to admit to his feelings or just let Shirley run over his life?
