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 or 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 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.

A light, fluffy gay rom com from Taiwan. Gay romantic comedies are so few and far between that it's worth putting up with the low budget here, just to get a different perspective on romance.

The editing isn't great, so the narrative wanders a bit. We don't spend as much time with the central couple as I would have liked. But the characters are likeable and don't fall into any BL cliches. In fact, although this is an Asian story about men falling in love with men, it isn't "boys' love." It's a story by gay men about their lives, or at least the fluffy, funny parts of their lives. It has a happy ending that makes sense emotionally. And a few scenes are so funny that they make the whole movie worthwhile (the scene where our hero gets his crush's business card is rom com gold).
