In Context: A superstar singer got sucked in into a parallel universe after a car accident. He then met a young female reporter as well as his jolly doppelganger.
It was 14 February 2019, Cheng Hao had just won the Best Singer award in China. He is currently the most popular and much-adored singer.
Post-award show, Cheng Hao was driving along Bin Jiang Tunnel when a long-predicted comet by NASA was free falling into the earth.
The comet was causing intense electromagnetism which engulfed the Bin Jiang Tunnel causing Cheng Hao to collide with another car driven by a woman.
Cheng Hao was trying to make a call on his mobile phone which shows that it was 2017, he did not notice it though. He then suddenly felt his heart aching that he collapsed on the ground.
He woke up in the hospital. His immediate thought was to inquire about the woman driver whose car he hit.
The doctor said that there was no woman brought in from the scene of the accident.
Cheng Hao was puzzled and forced himself to get out of the bed and out of the hospital room. He then saw his assistant looking all sophisticated and rather different.
He was relieved to find her but Zou Ling treated him as some weido. She did not know him at all.
He was calling the police about the accident and they too confirmed the lack of accident at Bin Jiang Tunnel.
He then quickly realised that he might have gone back in time as it was 2017 instead of 2019.
Zou Ling came back to see him. She apologised to him and asked him as he was handsome, would he like to become a celebrity.
She trained him and was pleasantly surprised that he was so talented and second guessing everything.
Two years passed on….
Cheng Hao is now a popular celebrity. Fans were screaming for him everywhere he goes. He was due to go to a recording studio or something when he noticed someone looking exactly like him.
He realised that he did not travel in time, he was in a parellel space.
Against advice from his manager, Zou Ling, he got out of the car to look for the guy but instead, he walked in straight to a heaving throng of over-excited fans.
This was just too much for him, he collapsed.
He was immediately taken to the hospital.
Fans where patiently waiting at the doorway of the hospital. One of these avid fans was a young reporter, Lin Xiao Xiao.
She got a call from her handler saying that the best spot to catch their target celebrity is through the backdoor.
And right on cue, Cheng Hao got out of the back door straight into his waiting car.
Xiao Xiao was so overwhelmed with excitement she forgot to take pictures.
Her handler followed Cheng Hao.
After a few minutes of chase, Cheng Hao stopped.
Xiao Xiao got out and was telling him she was not a stalker but his number one fan.
While she was talking Cheng Hao felt his heart aching and fainted.
Xiao Xiao was so alarmed, she did not know what to do. She thought she should do a CPR.
She put her hands bashfully on his precious chest telling him that she was not being naughty but helping him. No matter how much she pressed his chest, he was not waking up.
Xiao Xiao then thought that perhaps a mouth to mouth resuscitation is in order. This was the cutest.
She was pouting her lips getting ready to lock them in his mouth when he suddenly pushed her face away.
Again she apologised to him.
He asked her that as his number one fan, can she hush up the situation he was currently in?
Xiao Xiao agreed immediately.
Xiao Xiao woke up in bed with Cheng Hao but it was not really Cheng Hao but Lohong Jian, the singer’s look-alike.
Apparently, Xiao Xiao and Lohong Jian knew each other very well and were quite chummy in a platonic way.
Lo Hong Jian had told Xiao Xiao that he had been having a string of bad luck. It started two years ago. He had just finished his script on his laptop when there was a power surge. He then bumped his head and ended up in the hospital. When he got better, he had just decided to retrieve his script from his laptop when his laptop was snatched from him.
He went to a shaman, who advised him to change his name and date of birth. From Hao Cheng, he had renamed himself Lo Hong Jian.
Lo Hong Jian wanted to borrow money from Xiao Xiao, who actually do not have the money. Lo Hong Jian made her feel guilty of not helping him so she was forced to give him her credit card.
Cheng Hao was supposed to shoot a music video in Hong Kong but he requested that they should do it in Hainan instead.
He found out that Lohong Jian had just bought a train ticket to Hainan.
Meanwhile Xiao Xiao had been tasked to be the onsite reporter as well as assistant to Xu Houmei, who is shooting the video with Cheng Hao.
Xu Houmei is the niece of ht e news/tabloid agency that Xiao Xiao works for. Apparently this was Houmei last chance to stardom. They had tried everything to make her famous but nothing works. It is now down to Xiao Xiao to create juicy new for Houmei.
As soon as Xiao Xiao got to Hainan he saw Lo Hong Jian immediately. She was after him for having maxed her credit card.
But he got away and hid in the men’s dressing room. As she can’t wait for him any longer, she entered the men’s room and saw a partially naked Cheng Hao. She slipped and crashed into him holding on his towel. Now she saw him completely naked.
Xiao Xiao was on paparazzi duty. Her charge, Houmei, forced herself into Cheng Hao hotel room. Somehow Xiao Xiao was reluctant to take a photo as she thought Houmei is defiling her idol.
Anyway she noticed that there was another paparazzi taking photo.
She went to Cheng Hao to warm him but instead they ended up falling face to face.
After a long eye to eye and stopped short of kissing, Cheng Hao helped her to get up, while Xiao Xiao was telling him that she is her number fan and that she just wanted to close his curtains as they was another paparazzi trying to take his photo.
Cheng Hao took her sd card from her camera and told her to leave.
Cheng Hao was feeling rather guilty about Lo Hong jian. He instinctively knew that the bad luck Hongjian was getting was because of him surfacing in Hongjian’s time and space.
To sort of makeup for Hongjian’s surfeit of bad luck, he hired him to pretend as him. For two million he Hongjian agreed.
The fans can’t tell that Hongjian was a fake Cheng Hao but Xiao Xiao was able to tell immediately.
Hongjian is now living as Cheng Hao and vice versa.
The president of Cheng Hao fans club kidnapped Cheng Hao thinking that he was Hongjian, who was giving the real Cheng Hao a bad name, as the real Hongjian is a bit of a con-man and owes money from a lot of girls.
The President of the fans club brought Cheng Hao to XiaoXiao’s apartment as Hongjian owed her the most money.
But just one look at Cheng Hao, Xiao Xiao knew that the fan club leader got the wrong person. She kidnaps the real Cheng Hao.
Before Xiao Xiao could enlighten the FC leader. Cheng Hao went down on his knees begging Xiao Xiao to be merciful and that he would pay all the monies he owned her immediately.
Xiao Xiao understood what he was really saying. He did not want her to reveal who he really was.
As the girls and women Hongjian owed money to had started patrolling their area, Xiao Xiao advised Cheng Hao to stay with her for the night.
He slept in her bedroom but dead at night after going to the bathroom the half-asleep Xiao Xiao climbed into her bed where Cheng Hao was asleep.
He woke up and saw that she was in bed with him.
In his frustration, he got up and went for a walk at the apartment building lobby.
Xiao Xiao found him there but he collapsed clutching his heart.
Dragging him all the way back to the bedroom, she gave him a few bruises especially on his head.
Her applying tincture to his bruises woke him up form his dream. He was dreaming of what had occurred two years ago when the comet struck. He clearly saw the driver of the other car he bumped into. It was Xiao Xiao.
He was so surprised looking at Xiao Xiao and realising that it was her.
One thing led to another, she fell back on the bed and him on top of her.
Will they kiss?
Meanwhile Hongjian was haivng the time of his life. He can’t believe hs good fortune living in the lap of luxury as Cheng Hao.
