What is Love In Taipei about?

Love In Taipei starts off with Ever Wong, a premed student who wishes to be a contemporary dancer being sent to a Taiwanese summer school by her parents to learn more about her culture. But what she gets is completely different from what she or her parents signed her up for. Called a loveboat, the summer school in Huwei is one big ‘giant party’ where Taiwanese Americans get together to party and enjoy the city. 

While Ever is hesitant at first, she ends up joining the other students, including her roommate Sophie as they party and enjoy their 8 weeks in Taiwan. There she also meets her parents’ ideal Asian guy, Rick who is good at everything and the rebellious free-spirited boy, Xavier.  Oh, and she needs to be preparing for her secret dance audition… What could go wrong?
