    • Synopsis
    • To ensure the most exciting Froglympics in history, the Frog King announces that the subject who wins the most medals will have his daughter's foot in marriage. Caught unaware, the furious independent-minded Frog Princess runs away. Dressed as a common frog in men's clothing, it is her first experience living outside the palace. In the market, using the name Jackie, she befriends street vendor Rain and his tadpole sidekick Little Ken. While fleeing an unhappy customer, Rain finds himself accidentally entering the Froglympics, where he will be the only commoner in the competition. Jackie decides to enter also, so that she can influence the winner and her husband-to-be. Meanwhile, the Frog King is having a personal relations nightmare, without the Frog Princess by his side, and trains a stand-in for public appearances. By chance, Little Ken discovers that the Froglympics has been infiltrated by spies of the Snake King who is plotting an invasion. Rain and Jackie rescue each other from traps set by the compromised trainers, who only wish to make them fat and lazy before the contest. Jackie can't help developing a crush on the street smart Rain who has no clue to her royal heritage or gender. After winning the contest and saving the kingdom, determined bachelor Rain runs away from his responsibilities with Jackie in pursuit.
