This Is Not What I Expected

Synopsis

THIS IS NOT WHAT I EXPECTED, the debut feature from first time director Derek Hui, is a fun, light-hearted, romantic comedy starring Takeshi Kaneshiro (SEE YOU TOMORROW) as Lu Jin, a handsome, wealthy, hotel acquisition specialist who demands perfection from every hotel he visits, from the staff down to the food served in the hotel restaurant. Kanshiro stars opposite Zhou Dongyu (SOUL MATE) who plays Gu Shengnan, a flamboyant female sous chef who uses her culinary skills to win over Lu Jin in an effort to save her hotel from a buyout.

When Lu Jin checks into the Rosebud hotel he is dissatisfied with everything he sees and tastes. That is, until Gu Shengnan serves the perfectionist what may be a perfect meal. Out of the hotel, Lu Jin and Gu Shengnan are arch enemies, vowing to stay as far away from the other as they can. But in the kitchen, they share a mutual appreciation and love for fine cuisine. Is food the answer to solving their differences?
