The same year same-sex marriage is legalized, I am forced to throw my mom a fake funeral – all to… stop my little brother from marrying his boyfriend!?


The story centers on members of the Chen family: Yu-hong, who became a best-selling author after he was kicked out of home for being gay; Mrs. Chen, who wants to stop her son from marrying a man so badly that she wishes it on her pretend "deathbed"; Mr. Chen, who works all day and pays no attention to his family; and Yu-Jie, who secretly got divorced without telling her family.

During the week-long wake after Mrs. Chen's faked death, a series of hilarious events take place, giving her an opportunity to get to know her son better. While out searching for late-night snacks, Mrs. Chen was caught by her son; Yu-jie's ex-husband comes over and during the chaos, someone gets into the coffin instead of Mrs. Chen. On the 7th day, hoping to stop Yu-hong from getting married, Mrs. Chen pretends to be a ghost, but Yu-hong gets drunk and throws up on her…

After the wake, Yu-hong and his boyfriend travel to the end of the island to fulfill his mom's dream trip from when she was still "alive." There, they are seen by a local Youtuber and caught on tape being intimate. Everyone finds out about Yu-hong's sexuality and his mom's fake death, leading to a big media scandal. To help her son, Mrs. Chen begins a live stream to answer questions from netizens…

"Should I choose to be a good son but live unhappily, or be a bad son but live happily? I don't want to resent my mom all my life…"

Can the family ever reach an understanding? Can Yu-jie and Yu-hong end their misery and find happiness? A crazy, absurd family dramedy!
