Lu Wei Xun (Gong Jun) is one of China’s leading wine critics. His infallible sense of taste has helped him rise to the very top of the wine industry. However, he is famously hard to please, aloof, and fiercely critical – meaning wine importers and restaurant owners live in fear of his disdain.
One day, Lu Wei Xun’s world is turned upside down – after he accidentally kisses a woman named He Bu Zui (Song Yi Ren).
In almost every way possible, He Bu Zui is his polar opposite: She is down-to-earth, warm-hearted, and approachable. And most importantly, she lost sensation in her tastebuds at a very young age, meaning no matter what she eats or drinks, she cannot taste a thing!
Worse still, their fleeting kiss has a magical side-effect: He Bu Zui gains the wine critic’s highly developed sense of taste, while Lu Wei Xun suddenly cannot taste anything he eats or drinks – stripping him of his wine tasting super-abilities.
As the duo attempts to resolve the mix-up or adapt to this strange new paradigm, they begin to depend on one another – and begin to develop romantic feelings…
Can He Bu Zui help Lu Wei Xun maintain his status as a wine critic extraordinaire? And can she melt his cold heart while she’s at it?
