During the late reign of the Wanli Emperor of the Ming Dynasty, the crown prince had frequent conflicts with the eunuch faction, led by Jeung Sing. Jeung secretly sends the Eastern Depot officials after the crown princess. Under the protection of general Yun Sung Wun, scholar Jo Gwong Dau, and eunuch Lee Jeun Jung, the crown princess flees to an isolated, hazy forest. Amidst the chaos, the three of them and the crown princess get lost. When they emerge from the fog, they discover that they have traveled 400 years and arrived in the 21st century.


In the Fong household that morning, Fong Tin and Wan Wai Taai are getting ready to go do an interview at a TV station. The two men get into an argument about who should be doing the interview. In the end, Fong Wai Ji tells them they either do it together or don’t do it at all.

While Ivan’s choosing a new shirt, Zyu Gwok Fung locks him in his room and tells him there’s no way he’s letting him see Sandy.

Siu Dung follows Samuel into the restaurant. He sits down and tastes a few of the restaurants best known dishes. Siu Dung gives his opinions on them, which sets off the chef who made the dishes.

Since Siu Dung still isn’t answer his phone, Daai Gwan and Fong Wai Ji go to find Mountain Leopard for help. Mountain Leopard is still trying to recruit Daai Gwan into his gang but Daai Gwan is resisting because Fong Wai Ji told him to. Mountain Leopard then tries to negotiate with Fong Wai Ji to buy out Daai Gwan’s contract. Fong Wai Ji gives a ridiculously high amount and justifies it with not only the expenses but only on the emotional side too – she tells everyone that they’re dating; that’s why Daai Gwan wants to stay at her restaurant.

Fong Wai Ji is about to bring Daai Gwan out when Mountain Leopard receives a phone call that he found Siu Dung’s location. In exchange for the information, all Daai Gwan has to do is bow to their god statue and join the gang. Daai Gwan once again declines and turns away.

But on the other side of the room, he spots the statue of the emperor and immediately bows to it, officially joining the gang.

Siu Dung is taken up to a hotel room where Samuel’s secretary tries to seduce him into signing the contract with Dynasty Foods. Siu Dung is extremely uncomfortable and tries to escape from the other many times but she keeps pulling him back. Finally he takes a sharp pen to his neck and threatens to kill himself if the other woman comes any closer to him. She keeps her distance and Siu Dung manages to leave the room.

Daai Gwan and Fong Wai Ji are in a taxi on their way to Siu Dung. Fong Wai Ji is mad because Daai Gwan is now second-in-command of the gang when she wanted him to have nothing to do with them. He explains that he has to bow down to the God statue whenever he sees it. He also promises to explain the situation to Mountain Leopard the next time he has the chance.

Fong Wai Ji spots Siu Dung and they jump out of the taxi. Poor boy is traumatized.

Zyu Gwok Fung shows up on the filming site with the CEO of the company. They announce that he’s increasing his sponsorship of the film. But he also thinks Sandy’s character isn’t a right fit so she’s completely cut out. He warns her to stay away from Ivan. She tells him in return to keep a tighter leash on his useless son.

At the broadcasting station, Fong Tin and Wan Wai Taai are arguing again over every little thing from the number of questions that’s asked of each of them to the sitting position. It gets too much that they need to take a break in between the preparations. Yat Bo ends up schooling them because he knows the history of Fung Ming Geoi better than either men. Embarrassed, Fong Tin sends Yat Bo to get them water.

He gets it and on his way back, he sees Sandy in the stairway looking like she’s trying not to cry. He remembers when he received news that his lover was going to be the princess consort. She knows this is the end of them and starts to cry but Gwong Dau tells her to lift up her head, that way the tears won’t come out.

Sandy enters the building again and finds a bottle of water sitting in front of the door. She picks it up and looks around to see who left it there. She sees Yat Bo and watches his back as he walks away.

Yat Bo returns to the studio and finds out that the interview was cancelled so they’re going home now. Yat Bo thinks it’s weird.

Fong Wai Ji brings Siu Dung and Daai Gwan to Dynasty Food’s company. They’re there to see Samuel and demand an explanation for his treatment of Siu Dung. Samuel isn’t in yet but Gwok Fung Gui (Zyu Gwok Fung’s wife) just arrived and wants to speak with Fong Wai Ji.

Fong Tin finds out someone is behind this cancellation and that someone is Zyu Gwok Fung. The two get into another heated argument again.

The reason Gwok Fung Gui wants to speak with Fong Wai Ji is because she wants to buy Siu Dung’s contract. Fong Wai Ji refuses. Gwok Fung Gui then offers to buy Fung Ming Geoi but of course, Fong Wai Ji refuses too.

She leaves the office and goes back to Siu Dung and Daai Gwan. She tells Siu Dung to never follow any strangers around again.

The trio leave and encounter Samuel at the door. Fong Wai Ji makes it clear to the other that Siu Dung isn’t for sale but Samuel isn’t taking no for an answer. This pisses Daai Gwan off. He uses his inner power and pushes the energy toward’s Samuel’s car, shattering the windows. Samuel looks at the car than back at the group. Daai Gwan is glaring at him.
