Cradling his lucky condom, Tien (Tony Yang) moves to Taipei to meet an Internet hottie. But as soon as said hottie drops the "I have some hot DVDs at home" bomb, Tien flees to a nightclub, unwilling to part with his virginity outside the context of a passionate love affair. At the club, he glimpses Bai (Duncan), a/k/a "Playboy No. 1." Bai's got a pitch-black heart, though, either from reading girlie mags read moreor an unprecedented series of one-night stands.

Wuah~ just finish this and so much feels of happiness are floating through me right now. This is so adorable cute not in ur girly man kind of way which there are a ton in this movie but are so hilariously put really makes this movie interesting and grabs you all the way through. He has some amazing friends. The main Male lead is a Virgin, trying to find "The One' and read more he believes he has found it in the main, Male Lead "the playboy". the story is quite unique in that it takes a slight twist on the playboys story that he cant fall in love do to something that i will not say, which it adds hype to the movie so i wont say anything besides the obvious that was mention in the beginning of the film. The story in its self can be seen as average but the acting is well put. Gives u a very fluffy and sweet feeling all the way through. Its a nice film that gives a brighter out look on Gay relationships instead of ur common dark gay films.

BOTH leads are very handsome they have Killer smiles and lips. the innocent man that has never tasted love will taste it for the first time . this film is a must see u will leave with a satisfied ending and along the way laugh from the good comedy it has.

I think it has the same type of humor and it deals with a group of friends who happen to be gay

    This pulled me back to the surface after drowning in the sea of BL sad endings... hearts flying, I'm smiling, love is true and Taiwan just abolished from their constitution the exclusivity of marriage to hetero couples.

    One of my favourites on the 'watch if in need of a cheer up' list. Works every time! It's so cute and adorable! And the chemistry is just WOW! Even the supporting characters are funny and sweet.

    I really liked this movie, for the main part! I liked the main actors, their chemistry, and also how their relationship developed. I didn't care for Zhou's friends to be honest, but this movie deserves the watch because of the cute main couple :)

      Curious... I just saw you comment on my 'Boss&me' comment, and now I am here at one of my fav movies and yours is the latest comment. haha such coincidence. I've first seen f17 years ago, really way before I was even into asian films. And I have always loved it. Slightly exaggerared but so hilarious. I just wanted to rewatch... where did you watch it?

    This is one of those movies that I can watch over & over again (and believe me, I have). So cute and romantic! No angsting over being gay-- it's just an accepted fact and no one cares (well, literally ALL the characters are also gay men so it's kind of an insulated world in that regard, but it's still very nice to see even if it's not realistic. IMO sometimes realism is overrated). This is one of my go-to feel-good movies. I've shown it to 3 other people over the years and they've all loved it.
