Oops, I Murdered the Person the Person I Like Likes is a revenge movie about Horatio,
a servant who loves Princess Bellimperia. The feeling's not mutual: she's involved with a soldier, Andrea, and on top of that, her father has betrothed her to Don Lorenzo, leader of the Spanish Army. So she's got enough on her plate.
When Bellimperia sends Horatio to the front lines to deliver a letter, he learns his crush has a secret plan: to have Andrea kill Lorenzo!
Horatio warns Lorenzo of this treachery. As a reward, Lorenzo offers to make Horatio a noble... if he takes care of Andrea.
When the Spanish Army falls into an ambush, Horatio gets the opportunity to murder the person the person he likes likes. And from there, things just go so wrong.
