Tsui is renowned as an excellent healing author as well as a young successful man. His pieces are called "Chicken Soup for the Soul" for soothing many readers' soul and spirit. The public image of Tsui is a kindhearted family man who loves his wife deeply, though, he has inherited his wealth from his father. Since a trendy and charming lady, Elaine, had moved to live in the upper floor flat of Tsui's apartment, Tsui was facing a great impact on his calm and dull life.
