A Wedding Invitation is a romantic-comedy directed by Oh Ki-hwan about a young couple who ended their relationship in order to pursue careers in two different cities. After five years, the young couple reunites and tries to rekindle their romance together, but not without a series of tests, troubles, and misunderstandings between them. This movie is created in the collaboration of China Film Group and CJ Entertainment.

The story begins with a young boy named LiXing (Eddie Peng) and his girlfriend QiaoQiao (Bai Baihe) breaking up in order to pursue their own ambitions. LiXing wants to become a master chef whereas QiaoQiao wants to be in industrial design. They made an agreement that if in five years they are both still single, they will get married to eachother. After the break up, they moved to different cities. Five years later, QiaoQiao gets a call and an invitation to LiXing’s engagement. Deep inside QiaoQiao’s heart, she still has feelings for LiXIng. So QiaoQiao decides to win back LiXing’s heart and convince him that she still loves him despite not seeing each other for five years. The movie is supported by two rising stars Zhou Rui (Pace Wu) and MaoMao (Jiang Jinfu).
