Synopsis

This series is based on high school life, love, and one sport - volleyball. When Mia (Vivien Yeo) was young, she and her sisters, Ah Kiu (Charmaine Li), and Yan Yan (Yoyo Chen) met a fortune teller. The fortune teller gave Mia a bag and told her to open it when she turns 18 and she would find her true love. She told her to choose carefully so she wouldn't hurt her family. Mia and her sisters buried the bag and promised not to open it until Mia came back to Hong Kong. Mia stayed with her aunt while the Ah Kiu and Yan Yan went back to Hong Kong.

10 years later... Mia came back to Hong Kong and on her 18th birthday, Mia and her sisters dug up the bag and opened it. The letter inside the bag said Mia's true love would have a four leave clover birthmark on him. Mia was happy when she discovers that Ah Sun (Charles Szeto), the most popular guy in school whom is also the star volleyball player, has the four-leaf clover mark on his shoulder.

Yan Yan then decides that Mia should join the school's beach volleyball team so that Ah Sun will notice her. In order to do so, they go through different schemes and fail until they get Ah Kiu to help them, pretending to be Mia and playing amazingly at volleyball while Ah Sun is watching. Ah Sun, of course being the captain of the volleyball team, decides to recommend the "amazing" volleyball player Mia into the team. Ah Sun slowly develops a love for Mia thinking she is a beautiful girl in his school who shares his love of volleyball, both interest and skill wise. Soon after, Mia and Ah Sun start dating.

Though they could trick Ah Sun once, they cannot do the same thing during practice, therefore leading a very suspicious coach and team mates into their hands. Dealing with the school's most popular girl, Eugene, and her buddies, Yan Yan and Mia play a game of volleyball against them. Ah Kiu coming to the rescue just in time, beats Eugene for them, earning her a direct pass into the volleyball team. Mia's volleyball playing days do not last long for after a few practices the coach decides to get rid of her as well. Of course the boyfriend comes to the rescue and declares that her ability to play amazingly is not at its best since she injured herself in a game. Negotiating with the coach, Ah Sun helps Mia stay on the team be getting her to become the second manager.

In a series of events the Yip sisters soon discovers another guy in their school bearing the four-leaf clover birthmark. This guy is the school's rumored bad boy Nic Fong (Vin Choi). Though she has begun dating Ah Sun, Mia discovers that her mind always trails back to Nic. Whats more, she tells him to join the volleyball team in response to hearing him confess that he's been secretly watching her dance after school and how beautiful he thought she was. She was convinced by her sisters that she should tell him to be on the team so that she can have a change to be close to him and see if he was the guy for her instead of Ah Sun.

The story continues in complication as Ah Kiu begins to realize that she has liked Ah Sun from the beginning. Though she has always believed that she is unlike the normal bubbly girl that is head over heals for a popular pretty boy like Ah Sun, her jealousy towards Mia and Ah Sun relationship grows as they become closer. Though the best friend of Ah Sun, Ah kit, repeatedly reminds her that his love for her is never ending, she does not respond to it and only becomes more and more jealous and miserable.

What will happen to these four high schoolers? what will be their fate? Will Mia choose the right guy? Not bringing upon her family unhappiness and whats more of the curse?

Character bio

Yue Yat Sun - Captain of the Beach Volleyball Team. He is kind and sweet, and is loved by all the girls in school. He is also the only son of a super rich family. As soon as the Yip sisters find out that he has the four-leaf clover birthmark on the back of his shoulder, they decide to help Mia get into the Beach volleyball Team in order to get closer to Ah Sun. Mia and Ah Sun start dating soon after, though their chemistry slowly dies off when Mia and Ah Sun discover they love for each other was only sudden infatuation. On the last episode, Ah Sun doesn't officially have the break up talk with Mia, but both of them begin dating someone else, for Ah Sun, he begins dating Ah Kiu, the second daughter of the Yip family.

Mia/Yip Ching (Mia/葉菁) - The eldest sister. She was told by the fortune teller to look for her prince when she turns 18, otherwise her family's luck and happiness will be ruined for eternity. Being indecisive since she was a child she can't choose between the two boys who have the same four-leaf clover birthmark causing Ah Sun and Ah Kiu to be in deep deep misery.

Nic Fong (方力) - The so called bad student. He doesn't talk much, because he doesn't trust people. He has been in love with Mia since he saw her dance. Eventually, she convinces him to join the Beach Volleyball Team and after a little talk with Mia, he becomes more open to other people. Like Ah Sun, he has a four-leaf clover birthmark on his back, which makes things difficult when Mia finds out she has two princes to choose.

Yip Kiu (葉蕎) - A good-hearted, but boyish girl - she is the middle sister. She likes sports and dancing. During freetime she volunteers to help people. She is in love with Ah Sun, but doesn't dare to say it because he has the four-leaf clover birthmark, meaning he is her sister's prince charming.

Yip Yan (葉茵) - Yan-Yan is the youngest of the three sisters, she's pretty much the typical high school girl: beautiful, boy-crazed and fashion-sensed. She likes good-looking guys, and believes in rumours about Nic Fong, the school's bad student. Ever since she saw Chi-Ping in school, playing with cats and helping people, she's been in love with him. One day, she finally steps out of the tree and talks to him, and then they become friends and eventually lovers.

Wong Siu Kit (王少傑) - Second-in-command in the Beach Volleyball Team. He is best friends with Ah Sun, and is very daring when it comes to sports. Kit is in love with Ah Kiu, but is afraid of being rejected and so he decides to remain friends with her. During a volleyball contest, he twists his ankle and is unable to play with Ah Sun throughout the finals.

Coach Cheung - Coach of the Beach Volleyball Team; bad-tempered and stubborn. He is strict, but does what he thinks is best for the team. He was together with a teacher before they broke up, but eventually, they made up and went back together - and ever since then he's shown more compassion towards other people.

Miss Kwan - A school teacher that drives a motorcycle, not very liked by other teachers. Because she went through the same kind of adolescence, she understands Nic's situation better than most people and tries her best to help him. She was together with Coach Cheung before breaking up with him. But eventually, they make up.

Mon Mon - Nic's little sister. She used to be energetic, before having the fatal disease - leukemia. She therefore can't stay outside for too long without suffering sunlight, and Nic is responsible in taking care of her.

Leung Chi-Ping (梁志平) - A carefree and sweet-hearted young man. Yan-Yan has liked him ever since she saw him in the school, playing with some cats and helping a granny picking up her garbage. Yan-Yan watched him work three times before she actually spoke with him face-to-face, and since then they began dating. He is practically the kind of boyfriend any girl could ever ask for - sweet and loving, although he is a bit naïve. Like Ah Nic and Ah Sun, he has a four-leaf clover birthmark, only it's on his neck.

Ah Han - The principal's daughter and the representative for the beach volleyball team before Mia becomes the second representative, handling the boys' team. Like most girls at school, she's in love with Ah Sun, and isn't afraid to show it. She also dislikes the Yip sisters, because Ah Sun is dating Mia, and cooperates with Eugenia to get rid of her. But their malicious attempt lead them into a huge consequence. However, the forgiving sisters save them out of the disaster and they become best friends since then.

Eugenia (Eugene) - The captain of the female Beach Volleyball Team. She is also in love with Ah Sun, and she dislikes the Yip sisters, because Ah Sun is dating Mia, and cooperates with Ah Han to get rid of her. But their malicious attempt lead them into a huge consequence. However, the forgiving sisters save them out of the disaster and they become best friends since then.
