Ocean Private Equity, Director of Investment Xia You Qian is young, handsome and particularly good at his job. His keen eye to detail has helped him advance in his career and has given him the special ability to “read others’ minds”. But unknown to most, ten years ago he was an unattractive, geeky student who was constantly made fun of and bullied by fellow students in his hometown, Pu Lang Village. One day, as he was being bullied, a popular and pretty girl, An Xi, came to his rescue. You Qian eventually fell-in-love with An Xi after she displayed multiple acts of kindness towards him despite his unusual appearance and habits. On the day he’d risked his life hiking the woods of Pu Lang Village to obtain what An Xi wished for (a small bottle of Angel’s Tears, which was simply the water from a hard-to-get lake near the village), he caught her at a bad moment because she had just found out her mother left her and was never going to come back. With her frustration in mind, she took out all her anger on the poor boy who had just come to profess his admiration to her. Heartbroken by her harsh words, You Qian leaves Pu Lang Village, promising never to return.
Ten years later, work forces You Qian to go back to Pu Lang Village when the CEO of Ocean Private Equity has plans to develop in the village and sends him there in advance to scout the land. With his changed outer appearance and confidence demeanor, none of the village residents recognizes the ex-villager. He re-encounters An Xi and misinterprets that she has become a gold digger when she goes to the same hotel he is staying at to meet her creditor who holds the loan debt of her hostel inn. After getting acquainted with the village locals he realize that An Xi is still the kind selfless person he remembers her to be. He decides to help her get out of debt from the creditor who is trying to force her into marrying him. After getting her land title back from her creditor, You Qian then decides to hold on to the inn’s deed. He feels that An Xi does not even feel sorry for causing him the harm that she did so many years back, and takes to her to be a cold hearted individual. Hurt from her cold attitude when talking about his old self (the “guy who confessed to her”), he decides to attempt to get revenge on her. Yet his plans don’t quite go as he wishes.
