Frank loves Joy.
Joy loves Frank.
At least, that's what they tell their parents . . .

Frank's parents emigrated from Korea, and have pretty much one big rule for Frank - he must only date Korean girls.

So, when Frank falls for Brit, who is smart, beautiful and white, he needs a plan.

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 and Joy agree that fake-dating is the perfect plan.

But, they soon discover that the only thing more complicated than pretending to be in love, is actually falling in love.

Soon to become a Paramount film with with Unjoo Moon confirmed to direct!
