Jerry Yan, the major male protagonist of Meteor Garden, stars in Down With Love. This time, he portrays Xiang Yu Ping, a well-known lawyer who is chilly and aloof. However, those qualities quickly changed when his brother died, thus leaving him no choice but to keep an eye on his two unruly nieces.

With his demanding work schedule, he plans to employ a nanny to look after the two little daughters. The issue is that no hired employees would last for an extended period of time because either the two young females scare them away, or some of them try to entice him. When Yu Ping’s secretary shares the information with her tomboyish sister, Yang Guo, the long search comes to an end. However, what will he do if he discovers that Guo’s sexuality is a lie?
