It is love at first sight for Zhou Nan (Wang Ren Jun) when he is introduced to Wen Xiao Hua (Zhou Qi Qi) through his friend Wang Xu Dong (Leon Zhang) in talks of a possible wine partnership with Wen Xiao Hua’s father. Unable to pay the semester’s tuition and rooming charges, Qiao Fei has no choice but to borrow money from her fellow friend and rising actress Wu Jia Yi (Nikki Li) and stay at her messy apartment as well. When the results come out at the foreign interpreters program, Qiao Fei is shocked that she did not make it. She had scored the highest in the written part and although she received only 10 points in the oral exam, she still passed to get into the program, not knowing they had changed the guidelines. She angrily storms to find Cheng Jia Yang, asking him why. With the pressure of his co-workers Cheng Jia Yang reluctantly agrees to have Qiao Fei sit in the classes, but she will not be an official student. He challenges her that unless she scores the highest in the three exams, she will be kicked out of the program.
