Hello Mr. Billionaire Storyline
Wang Duo Yu is a loser in life and a minor league football Goalkeeper. Unknown to him, he had a (recently deceased) rich Uncle. In order to test if Wang knows the value of money, he is given the task of disposing of 1 billion yuan in 30 days.
Wang has to spent it legally and isn’t allowed to have any assets to show for it at the end of the task. If Wang is successful, he gets to inherit his Grand Uncle’s 30 billion yuan worth of assets.
The biggest problem of all however, is that Wang is not allowed to tell anyone about the task, which create a lot of confusions to the people around him.
He is also faced with the evil trustee company’s bosses who desperately need him to fail in order to control the management of this huge assets.
Everything plays out in a similar manner (since inspired from Brewster’s Millions) till the mid point from where some feel good surprises emerges. However the pre-climax & climax felt rushed, since it didn’t sync with the story.
Overall, it’s worth your time. Hello Mr. Billionaire (2018) [English Subtitle]
