Always Be My Maybe trailer: Ali Wong, Randall Park play childhood sweethearts in Netflix's upcoming romcom
Always Be My Maybe, which is co-written by both Randall Park and Ali Wong, premieres on 31 May on Netflix.
It seems that Netflix is bringing back the 'best friends falling in love' trope back with the upcoming romantic-comedy, Always Be My Maybe. Directed by Fresh Off the Boat creator Nahnatchka Khan, who his making her film debut, the romantic comedy stars Ali Wong and Randall Park in lead roles.
In Always Be My Maybe, Wong portrays Sasha Tran, a celebrity chef, who decides to move back home to San Francisco to open a new restaurant, where she is reunited with her childhood friend Marcus. The two haven’t seen each other in 15 years, and a brief flashback montage offers context for their relationship backstory. When her fiancée (Lost’s Daniel Dae Kim) calls off the engagement, Sasha begins to spend a lot of time together with Marcus and the they both begin to rebuild their friendship. While Marcus' old crush on Sasha lights up again, she has already met someone new. By the end, the 'what if' question unsurprisingly comes into play, and a major Hollywood star appears - one who could destroy Marcus’ romantic hopes.
