While The Beatles sang it ages ago, you might want to re-live it when you see David Yong all peacocked up in Celine jackets, and see his story unravel in front of us, you feel sorry for him. He portrays the character who is Singaporean, living in Korea, who family runs timber businesses in Cambodia and South East Asian countries. He has opened an Entertainment business in Korea and lives in the tallest tower in Seoul, has designer bags in living room, and designer clothes on rack, and yes a money counting machine.

He drives a ferrari, but is turned down at the restaurant because there is no parking. He calls his driver for help, but ultimately gets late for a date.
