Poor Philip. Fresh out of college he landed an internship at a prestigious chemical company working right under the CEO. If things had gone his way, Philip would have gotten the coveted entry level position and worked his way up the ladder. He wanted to be at least middle management in 10 years. Of course, things didn't go his way. Instead he met the girl of his dreams and she completely ruined his life.
He knew her as Desiree and from the first time she touched his hand and smiled at him, he was a goner. Even after she broke into lab, stole a revolutionary drug and all the research, then started a fire to escape, leaving Philip to take the fall, he loved her. In fact, he obsessed over her. For more than a year, he searched religiously until he'd ostacized himself from every relationship he had and burned through his savings. It wasn't until his parents came and took him back to South Korea that his life started to turn around. He still thought about Desiree every day and even dreamed of her but with the support of his family, he slowly started getting his life back. Now, more than a decade later, he was middle management but for a steel working plant in Michigan that didn't utilize a third of his intelligence and skills. He has wife and two kids. A nice house in a neighborhood that was still recovering from the recession but was in a good school district. A good life until a tabloid featuring a familiar smile turned his whole world upside down again.
