Two Korean teenagers living in America pretend to date each other to please their parents, while secretly in love with other people
Frank Li is caught between his parents' expectations and his own Californian life. Frank's parents emigrated from Korea, and have pretty much one big rule for Frank - he must date only Korean girls. But Frank has fallen for Brit, who is smart, beautiful and white.
His friend Joy Song is in the same boat, and so they make a pact: they'll pretend to date each other in order to gain their freedom. Frank thinks fake-dating is the perfect plan, but it leaves him wondering if he ever really understood love - or himself - at all.
