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.

Always Be My Maybe, which is co-written by both Park and Wong, got its name from the Mariah Carey hit 'Always Be My Baby,' which plays in the trailer. The film premieres on 31 May on Netflix.
