The first dinner party without fear or danger made him find a good business, so he disguised as a reporter and became a full-time "dinner party" attender. In order for his wife Xiaomei to also enjoy free high-end food, they planned to attend a dinner together, but the reckless Xiaomei was exposed. As a result, the police went all the way to find out Dong Dan, a potential banqueting bug.
