Jia Le always feels that she is cursed and misfortune will befall any man she falls in love with. She finally relented when Zhi Wei proves her wrong with his actions and sincerity. An accident changes Jia Le's mind and she escapes by joining a humanitarian mission, with Zhi Wei hot on her heels.
Jia Qi and Cheng Feng also fall in love, but the latter's ex-fiancee Shan Shan (Eelyn Kok) re-appears and wants to reconcile. Jia Qi is one who cannot tolerate any blemishes in a relationship and decides to step out of the competition and leaves the country, finding new love. But she returns to find a depressed Cheng Feng after Shan Shan's evil ploys are exposed and the sudden death of his father.
