Desi Lee is Korean-American and most of the plot is about her using the Korean Dramas she watches to try and date the guy she likes. One of her best friends, Fiona, is a lesbian, but is not represented in the story much besides helping Desi and dating different girls. Desi’s mom passed away when she was little, and both she and her dad have to deal with their grief.
