Samantha is the top student of Celestine High. She is the only daughter of the ever so wealthy Perez family. Her life was perfectly fine, until she argued with her best friend's boyfriend, who cheated on her. Little did she know that it was just her friends' bet and it was all a mistake. TOP now looks for her to get revenge. It is revealed later in the film that TOP and Sam are childhood friends too, but Sam doesn't know because she got into an accident and had an amnesia, thus forgetting everything about TOP and his promise. It is also revealed that Sam is engaged to Red, TOP's best friend, by arranged marriage.
TOP: (see SamanTOP)
Sam and TOP disliked each other from the start because they had a negative first impression about each other. Although gradually, they start to fall for each other, and that's when their relationship start to become complicated, due to the things preventing them from being together.
Red and Sam become friends when she entered the lives of the Lucky 13 gang. Towards the middle of the film, they find out that they are in a fixed marriage with each other. They lived in France for two years, and when they come back, Red tells his sister that Sam is not hard to love, showing that he's in love with her. But can't compete against 10 years of Sam and TOP's love.
Selene is Sam's mother. Selene expects her daughter to be perfect as she is the heir of the company. At the middle of the film, her and Sam fight due to her not approving of Sam and TOP's relationship.
Crisostomo is Sam's father. He investigates TOP because he doesn't approve of him and his daughter's relationship. He also seems to expect Sam to be a perfect daughter. Although when the Perez family were having dinner with Red and Selene tells Sam that they'll be living at France for good, Crisostomo saw how his daughter doesn't want to go, and sort of feels sorry for her.
Lee is Sam's cousin, who she considers as her brother. Lee attempts to break Sam and TOP's relationship, not because he doesn't approve of them being together, but because Sam is engaged to someone else. He was the one who told Sam about her fixed marriage, and comforted her.
The Crazy Trios:
Sam is best friends with Michie, China and Maggie, who are often known as The Crazy Trios because of how they act. The three of them made a stunt at the beginning that led to Sam and TOP hating each other. They also poked fun at Sam when they found out that Sam has no choice but to agree to go out with TOP. Although they comforted her when Sam was crying because TOP broke up with her, and Michie realised that she has fallen in love with him.
At first, Audrey hated Sam because she feels competitive against her, since Sam is always top at everything. Towards the middle of the film, it was revealed that they used to be best friends before Sam had an accident. Audrey expected her to remember her, but when she didn't, Audrey was hurt, leading to her hating Sam. She attempted to help Sam with her relationship by giving her two options: leave and forget him, or run away with him.
Sam becomes friends with TOP's sister when they hang out together at TOP's basketball game. She admits that she likes Sam for her brother.
Amarie was close friends with Sam and The Crazy Trios before she disappeared. When she returned, she reconciled with the four of them, and helps Sam realize that TOP is not a criminal person.
The Lucky 13:
Sam becomes friends with the Lucky 13 gang due to always hanging out with them, especially when they were at the beach house, joking around.
Quotes (English Translations)
Sam: (As a narrator) Do you believe in the word "destiny"? Maybe there are just a few who believes in that word. I used to be one of those who don't believe in it. It sounds old-fashion, right? If only everything's just that easy. If only fairytales are simple. If only the first person who told you they love you is the one you'll end up with. If only everything was smooth-sailing and no complicated twist. And hoping that each person's love story is made by Walt Disney. That in spite of all the trials, it ends up with a happy ending. Maybe I'll believe in the word fate. 'Cause every person's fate is written in a book from the very beginning.
