Synopsis :
Empress Wu Zetian was the only throned woman in the long history of ancient China. She was not born noble. Instead, she was a daughter of a wood merchant named Wu Shihuo. In ancient times, merchants were seen as an inferior group, as they tended to be greedy and cruel. Mei Niang’s mother, Princess Yang, was actually a noble from the previous Sui Dynasty which had been replaced by the Tang Dynasty after many wars between Yang Guang and Li Shimin. Therefore, Princess Yang led a plebeian life until she was married in her forties. She bore two daughters, the second of which was Mei Niang.

Mei Niang was selected for the Imperial Palace at age fourteen, when Li Shimin was emperor. He fell in love with her beauty at first sight, but soon became interested in another pretty girl named Xu Hui who was also a clever and smart girl like Mei Niang. There was once a popular song in the streets of Chang’an City which sang that an empress with the surname of Wu would take the throne and kill all the descendants of the Imperial Li family. Li Shimin had once suspected that Wu Zetian might be the predicted empress, so he meant to kill her to extinguish any potential danger. However, he ultimately gave up and told her to be a nun in Ganye Temple together with some of his other wives. After all, it’s ridiculous to believe in that time that a woman could became a ruler.

Resensi :

“Dalam rimba persilatan benda yang termulia ialah golok pembunuh naga. Orang yang memilikinya dapat memerintah kolong langit. Selama pedang langit tidak muncul, maka golok pembunuh naga adalah serigala paling hebat.”

Perebutan golok pembunuh naga akhirnya membawa Zhang Cui Shan (murid kelima perguruan putih Wudang), Yin Susu (putri ketua Elang Alis Putih) dan pembunuh berdarah dingin yang penuh dendam, Xie Xun si Singa Emas ke sebuah pulau kosong yang mereka namakan Pulau Es dan Api. Perselisihan ketiga orang tersebut selesai di pulau itu, bahkan dua sejoli Yin Susu dan Zhang Cui Shan memutuskan untuk menikah.

Belasan tahun kemudian, Zhang Cui Shan beserta istri dan anaknya berhasil kembali ke Cina daratan. Semula mereka mengira akan bahagia karena dapat bertemu dengan keluarga serta saudara-saudara perguruan. Namun tidak disangka-sangka, nasib suami istri tersebut berakhir tragis. Zhang Cui Shan dan istrinya bunuh diri demi melindungi Xie Xun dari tangan perguruan-perguruan putih yang mengincar golok pembunuh naga. Bahkan anak mereka yang masih kecil, Zhang Wu Ji terkena tapak Xuan Ming dan nyaris tidak dapat bertahan.

Pada saat Zhang Wu Ji melakukan perjalanan demi mengobati penyakitnya, ia mengalami serangkaian pengalaman yang menegangkan. Wu Ji dan kakek gurunya menolong seorang anak gadis bernama Zhou Zhi Ruo dari penjahat. Wuji belajar ilmu pengobatan dari tabib Hu Qing Niu. Mengantarkan gadis kecil Yang Bu Hui kepada ayahnya yang merupakan utusan kiri aliran Ming. Hingga tanpa sengaja mendapatkan ilmu sembilan matahari dari perut kera yang dapat menyembuhkan lukanya.

Namun petualangan seru Wu Ji ternyata tidak berhenti sampai di sana. Keluar dari jurang tempat ia belajar ilmu sembilan matahari, Wu Ji bertemu dengan berbagai macam orang yang akhirnya mengantarnya ke puncak terang, tempat Zhang Wu Ji tanpa sengaja menjadi ketua aliran Ming.

Kemudian Zhang Wu Ji dihadapkan kepada pilihan yang sulit. Kebaikan Wu Ji membuat empat gadis di sisinya jatuh cinta kepadanya. Zhao Min, seorang putri kerajaan mongol; Zhou Zhi Ruo, gadis yang pernah ditolongnya semasa kecil; Zhu Er, gadis laba-laba yang ternyata adalah sepupunya; serta Xiao Zhao, pelayan yang selalu mengikuti Wu Ji dengan setia. Di antara keempat gadis tersebut, kepada siapakah Wu Ji benar-benar menaruh hatinya? Di antara cinta, kekuasaan, dan negara, yang manakah yang paling berarti baginya?

Pendapat dari Gallery Film Eden

 

Pertama kali membaca daftar cast Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre 2009 kami berpikir, Deng Chao dan Ady An sepertinya tidak cocok memerankan Zhang Wu Ji dan Zhao Min. Tapi karena Condor Trilogy adalah film favorit kami, maka kami pun tergelitik untuk menonton versi yang baru ini.

Tidak seperti yang kami kira, satu dua episode pertama sudah bisa membuat kami ketagihan menonton—padahal tokoh utamanya saja belum muncul. Film ini memiliki banyak kelebihan,

- Film ini memasukan banyak banyak unsur komedi namun tidak berlebihan.

- Film ini menampilkan banyak pemandangan indah sebagai setting cerita.

- Unik, Heaven Sword and Dragon Sabre 2009 banyak menampilkan adegan-adegan yang dalam versi-versi sebelumnya sama sekali tidak diceritakan, sehingga membuat kami lebih memahami kisah ini.

- Karakter Wu Ji dan Zhao Min sedikit bergeser, membuat kisah ini menjadi lebih segar karena seperti menonton sebuah kisah yang benar-benar baru.

Twenty years later

The daughter that she left behind is now “Fu Er Mo Sha” Enterprise’s Chairman’s daughter – Zhuang Fei Yang. Fei Yang would never forget the day of her 20th birthday. For the purpose of giving her a surprise at her birthday party, while hurrying home on his helicopter ride, there was an accident and the helicopter fell. The company’s core person – general manager, Bi De, is a handsome guy. Originally he is a very good-looking couple with Fei Yang and is also the person who her father has selected. At the time when Fei Yang is at her weakest moment, Bi De extended his warm shoulder to her. Fei Yang’s speeding heart was taken over by Bi De. One evening, it was initially supposed to be a romantic marriage proposal, but it developed into a cruel conspiracy. The mean and ferocious Bi De, used a damaged car to take the unconscious Fei Yang and pushed it down a cliff…

IM Com

Wei Xiang, Ma Ji, Pa Zi, Ba Bi, Xiao Chan, these 5 youngsters who are building their own business, mistakenly were thrown together and created Zhu Luo Ji.com service company. As long as a business can make money, they would take it. Among one of the businesses is to work as waiters at Fei Yang’s birthday party. It was at the party that Wei Xiang unexpectedly meets Fei Yang for the first time. This pair of eyes that can see through to the deepest part of a person’s spirit, hence, is imprisoned in his mind. After this, even though they have no more interactionsw, yet, Wei Xiang is still silently concerned with any news on Zhuang Fei Yang. And the newest information is that Fei Yang is wounded because of love, has moved far away to Europe and lost all contact with her. Actually, Fei Yang, who was framed and pushed down the cliff, didn’t die. Luckily she was saved by a weird doctor and meticulously “sculpted”, remodeling Fei Yang’s face entirely, changing it to look exactly like his daughter’s. And Fei Yang, who has totally had her face changed, madly ran away under her nearly collapsing state. The present her is no longer Zhuang Fei Yang. Nobody knows her. She can’t get into the company, can’t go home, doesn’t have a dime on her and also has no where to ask for help.

Betel-Nut Girl

One day, just when Zhu Luo Ji, this group of people is working, they meet up with betel-nut girl, Ye Xiao Feng. What’s even more unbelievable is that Xiao Feng’s appearance looks exactly like that of famous girl, Zhuang Fei Yang. Everyone’s speculation is that the rich girl couldn’t bear the simultaneous shock of losing of her father and the changed of heart of her lover and to the extent of trying to escape reality, she banished herself. With regards to Zhu Lou Ji, this is simply a huge opportunity that Heaven has given to them. Therefore, they work hard to get close to Xiao Feng, hoping that they will be able to fight for a chance to go move up in the world. So, Ye Xiao Feng is actually one of the twins that Zhu Fang took away all those years ago. The God of Fate apparently hasn’t forgotten them. Going down the road, life has always been full of bumpiness. In order to share her mother’s responsibilities, Xiao Feng works at the gas station in the daytime and in the night time, she would secretly go to the betel nut stand and work as a betel-nut girl.

Would Fei Yang and Xiao Feng, this pair of twins, be able to reveal their identity? Sisters working together, would they be able to get back the father’s “Fu Er Mo Sha” and be satisfied?

Sinopsis :
Wang Zhaojun was one of the four China’s ancient beauties. Like her peers, her fame was also tied to the political development of her time. Today, the name of Zhaojun not only symbolizes physical beauty, but also a spirit of goodwill to bridge different cultures, even at the expense of one’s own interests.

During the reign of the Han emperor Xuan (91-49BC), the Huns, or Xiong-Nu, Han’s troublesome northern neighbor, split into five kingdoms, each led by a chieftain known as Shan-Yu. Wars started among the five Shan-Yus in a bid for control. Shan-Yu Khukhenye, who was defeated by his brother Shan-Yu Zhizhi-Guduhu, decided to befriend the former foe in the south, Emperor Xuan, by suggesting that he pay the emperor a personal visit. Khukhenye was the first Shan-Yu that ever came to pay tribute to a Han emperor. Rejoiced and feeling a bit flattered, Emperor Xuan went out of his way to meet Khukhenye at the suburb of Capital Chang’an and held a grand banquet in his honor. After a month’s stay in Chang’an, Khukhenye thought of going back home and asked Emperor Xuan for help. The emperor sent an army of ten thousand strong to escort him back and gave him a hundred thousand bushels of food to bring back to his starved people. The thankful Khukhenye was determined to maitain the friendly relationship with the Han Dynasty.

After Emperor Xuan’s death, his son succeeded the throne and became Emperor Yuan. Meanwhile, Shan-Yu Zhizhi-Guduhu had been running over the states to the west of Han and went so far as to slay the envoy of the Han emperor. This act of brutality incurred the emperor’s relaliation and cost his own life. With the death of Shan-Yu Zhizhi-Guduhu, Khukhenye’s position was further strengthened. In the year of 33AD, he paid a second visit to the Han’s capital, where he asked to marry one of Emperor Yuan’s daughters to cement the relations of Han and his Xiong-Nu state. The emperor granted his request, but instead of his daughter, the bride would be a maid of honor. Getting married would be a god-sent opportunity for a maid of honor to be freed from their perpetual solitude in the backyard of the palace. However, all but one volunteered to venture in to a matrimony that would destine their life in a foreign land. That was Wang Qiang, better known in history as Wang Zhaojun. She was extremely beautiful and intelligent. At the wedding in Chang’an, the emperor was awed by Zhaojun’s beauty.

Back to his chamber, Emperor Yuan was very regretful that he allowed Wang Zhaojun to be married to the Xiong-Nu chiefttain. He would have had her as his concubine if he had known she was so glamorous. He wondered why he had not seen her portrait and sent for it for a review. Incidentally, emperors chose their concubines by looking at portraits instead of the girls themselves. When he found that the portrait did not match Wang Zhaojun, he launched an investigation. It turned out that the artist Mao Yanshou would paint a prettier portrait for those who bribed him or vice versa. As Wang Zhaojun refused to do so, he did injustice to her beauty so that the emperor would never know her existence in the palace. In rage, Emperor Yuan had Mao Yanshou executed. Regretful as he was, Emperor Yuan blessed the inter-racial marriage. He admired Zhaojun’s courage and was thankful for her willingness to serve the interests of Han in spite of her own.
Escorted by officials sent by the emperor, Wang Zhaojun embarked on a long journey to the north on horseback. They braved bitter cold and heavy snow storms and finally reached Xiong-Nu. There Khukhenye conferred the title of Peaceful Hu-E-Shi, in the hope that she would bring them security and peach. That she did by persuading Khukhenye to abandon violence. As a result, peace reigned on the border with her mother country for over half a century. After Khukhenye’s death, Zhaojun married the eldest son of his and his concubine in accordance with the custom of the Xiong-Nu nationality – a custom abhored by the Chinese moral norms in which she was brought up. Therefore, it must have taken a lot of courage and political insight for her to do so. It has been popularly believed that she did so for the sake of Xiong-Nu’s stability, and thereby peace between Xiong Nu and her mother country. For her self-sacrifice a second time, she earned the respect of her compatriots not only in her generation, but generations to come.

The ancient inscriptions foretold of all events since Tang Dynasty was founded, such as who would be the emperors, when would disasters occur, all of which were predicted with uncanny accuracy. What struck terror into the hearts of people was the last verse on the tablet, prophesying a grim future: When the constellation of Prince of Darkness Clashing with Seven Malignant Stars appears, Estranged Couple of Seven Lifetimes will be reborn. The demon sect will make use of the power from the acrimonious energy of the star-crossed lovers to dominate the world, turning it into a living hell.

Resensi :

Bunga namun bukanlah bunga (hua fei hua)
 

Kabut namun bukanlah kabut (wu fei wu)

Datang pada malam hari (ye ban lai)

Pergi saat pagi menjelang (tian ming qu)

Datang seperti mimpi musim semi, hanya sesaat (lai ru chun men bu duo shi)

Kemudian seperti awan pagi, lenyap dan tidak dapat ditemukan lagi (qu si chao yun wu mi chu)

(Hua Fei Hua, puisi Bai Ju Yi)

Film ini memiliki latar belakang pada masa pemerintahan presiden sementara Cina, Yuan Shi Kai, dimana terjadi pergolakan besar oleh sebuah kelompok pemberontakan yang menamai diri mereka ”Ai Kuo Hui” (Kelompok Cinta Negara).

Shanghai, 1913. Pergolakan tersebut menyeret empat tokoh utama dalam cerita ini ke dalam sebuah kemelut cinta-dendam dan perjalanan hidup mati yang menegangkan :

- Feng Yi, seorang mata-mata Ai Kuo Hui dalam kepolisian

- Hua Er, seorang gadis pengemis yang polos

- Liu Yi Kui, putra angkat ketua Ai Kuo Hui

- Xiao Xue, gadis sederhana dari kelompok opera di Han Kou

Dalam tugasnya sebagai mata-mata, Feng Yi berperan sebagai laki-laki jahat yang melakukan apa pun untuk mendapatkan kekuasaan. Begitu rahasia dan pentingnya misi yang dijalankan Feng Yi, sehingga hampir seluruh kelompoknya sendiri menganggap Feng Yi sebagai pengkhianat Ai Kuo. Bahkan saudara angkatnya sendiri, Liu Yi Kui, kini kecewa karena mengira Feng Yi telah berubah menjadi orang yang tidak memiliki perasaan.

Dalam tekanan dan kepedihan yang membuat Feng Yi tidak berdaya, muncul seorang Hua Er—gadis mungil yang jatuh cinta pada Feng Yi pada pertemuan pertama mereka—menjadi satu-satunya sosok dalam hidup Feng Yi yang percaya kepadanya tanpa peduli apa yang Feng Yi lakukan dalam pekerjaannya. Dengan adanya kepercayaan Hua Er akan ”orang baik”-nya itu, Feng Yi dapat bertahan dalam lingkungan pemerintah yang gelap dan penuh intrik, serta tidak merasa kesepian lagi.

Sinopsis :

Tong Jia Di merupakan seorang gadis remaja menyedihkan yang menjadi tulang punggung keluarganya yang memiliki banyak utang. Jia Di hidup hanya untuk bekerja, bekerja dan bekerja.

“Aku tidak butuh mimpi. Tidak tertarik pada cinta. Aku tidak akan membiarkan diriku sendiri berharap. Karena tanpa harapan, aku tidak akan merasa kecewa.” Kalimat inilah yang menjadi moto Jia Di selama ini.

Namun siapa yang tahu bahwa takdir berkata lain? Siapa yang tahu bahwa panah cupid menembaknya dan pangeran berkuda putih akhirnya datang untuk menemuinya? Tentu saja, di zaman ini pasti akan berbeda. Mungkin ia seorang pria yang mengendarai mobil sport atau motor besar yang keren.

Pada acara amal di pertokoan keluarga Huo, Jia Di dan teman baiknya, Jiang Xiao Nan memberikan jasa penukaran kupon. Xiao Nan yang melihat keadaan Jia Di berinisiatif untuk mencarikan pacar untuk temannya itu. Dua pria beruntung yang mendapatkan jasa Jia Di adalah putra-putra keluarga Huo, yaitu Huo Yan dan Huo Da. Huo Yan mendapatkan kupon cinta, sedangkan Huo Da mendapatkan jasa pelayanan seminggu penuh dari Jia Di yang akhirnya semakin mendekatkan kedua pria tersebut pada Jia Di. Hanya saja dilihat dari sisi mana pun juga, keduanya adalah pangeran keluarga kaya raya yang tidak mungkin digapai oleh Jia Di.

Sepuluh hari kemudian merupakan pada hari ulangtahun Jia Di yang keduapuluh. Akankah pada hari itu Jia Di benar-benar menemukan cinta sejatinya? Di antara kedua tuan muda keluarga Huo, siapakah yang ditakdirkan untuk menjadi pangerannya? Kalau berdasarkan logika, pilihan Jia Di tentu saja jatuh kepada sang kakak, Huo Yan yang baik dan sopan. Namun Huo Da si bungsu yang keras kepala, pemberontak dan semaunya sendiri pun sama berniatnya untuk menukar kupon ’Malaikat-Tuan’-nya demi mendapat servis pelayanan seminggu Jia Di.

Tapi itu tidak berlaku untuk Yuan Xiang Qin. Gadis bodoh dari kelas F yang bermimpi untuk menjadi kekasih Jiang Zhi Shu, si jenius dari kelas A. Meskipun surat cintanya ditolak mentah-mentah oleh Zhi Shu, dia tetap pantang menyerah. Niatnya untuk menjadi kekasih Zhi Shu sudah bulat dan tidak akan pernah berubah. Dan suatu hari Tuhan akhirnya berpihak padanya.

Karena rumahnya hancur karena gempa lokal, mau tak mau Xiang Qin dan ayahnya mengungsi. Mereka akhirnya ditampung oleh suami istri sahabat baik ayah Xiang Qin, yang ternyata tidak lain adalah orang tua Jiang Zhi Shu!

Bagaimana jadinya jika mereka berdua tinggal satu atap? Berhasilkan Xiang Qin mendapatkan hati Zhi Shu? Drama ini mengisahkan bagaimana perjuangan si bodoh untuk mendapatkan cintanya. Cerita ini mengandung pesan bahwa di dunia ini tidak ada yang mustahil. Setinggi apa pun mimpimu, asal kau serius dan mau berusaha, yakinlah suatu hari mimpimu pasti bisa kau raih. Kalau Yuan Xiang Qin yang bodoh saja bisa mendapatkan ranking 100 demi Jiang Zhi Shu, apalagi yang tidak mungkin di dunia ini?

Synopsis :

‘A house is not a home, until someone makes it one.’

Mengangkat cerita seputar ‘concerto’ kehidupan dua wanita single parent yang sangat bertolak belakang, kisah ini sedikit berbeda dari drama idola kebanyakan. Gao Ling, gadis muda yang optimis, polos dan hangat, berada dalam situasi keuangan yang sangat kritis karena mempertahankan mati2an rumah kenangan masa kecilnya dengan kedua orang tuanya. Ia bertemu dengan Yuan Hao dan Feng Shang Ning dalam situasi2 janggal : mencoba memeras yang satu dan memotret diam2 yang lain. Meskipun demikian, satu dari mereka akan menjadi cinta pertama dan ayah dari anaknya, sedangkan yang lain akan menjadi bintang penyelamatnya. Yuan Zhe, tuan putri Hao Han Coorporation yang cantik dan anggun, mencintai Feng Shang Ning namun selalu ditolak oleh laki2 itu. Dalam situasi kalut ia bertemu dengan laki2 lain di New York, menikah hingga memiliki anak. Meskipun demikian ia tidak pernah bisa melupakan Shang Ning.

Yuan Hao, adik Yuan Zhe, meskipun ayahnya adalah pemilik perusahaan perumahan besar, tidak pernah betah tinggal dalam ‘istana’nya, akhirnya memutuskan untuk lari dari rumah. Pada saat itu, ia justru menemukan kehangatan dalam rumah kecil di lahan berbukit milik Gao Ling. Feng Shang Ning, arsitek ambisius Hao Han, sedang menunggu sebuah kesempatan untuk membuat sebuah desain legendaris di tanah berbukit. Ia membutuhkan tanah di rumah Gao Ling agar tujuan itu berhasil.
<!–[endif]–>

Pendapat :

Saat mendengar judulnya, kami mengira film ini paling tidak sedikit berhubungan dengan musik. Ternyata selain Yuan Hao yang senang bermain gitar, film ini sama sekali tidak mengungkit masalah musik. Kemudian, setelah menonton hingga selesai, kami menyadari Eddie Peng (Yuan Hao) memang tokoh penting, namun tokoh utamanya adalah Lee Wei (Feng Shang Ning).

Masalah mendasar dalam film ini adalah cinta dan keluarga. Feng Shang Ning adalah sosok yang tidak menyukai tanggungjawab, hanya menganggap keluarga sebagai beban sampai2 adiknya sendiri lari daripadanya karena takut. Diantara semuanya, ia justru sosok yang paling menyedihkan. Yuan Hao pernah merasakan kehangatan keluarga di rumah Gao Ling. Yuan Zhe memiliki seorang putra yang sangat dicintainya, Gao Ling pernah memiliki keluarga yang hangat dengan orangtuanya yang sudah meninggal. Ia juga memiliki seorang anak perempuan dan teman2 seperjuangannya. Hanya Feng Shang Ning saja yang tidak pernah merasakan sekalipun apa yang dinamakan ‘keluarga’.

Butuh banyak waktu dan kejadian hingga ia menyadari bahwa keluarga adalah sebuah beban yang amat menyenangkan.

Qin Wei Yi, putra tunggal seorang pengusaha kaya yang sejak kecil hidupnya selalu diatur oleh ayahnya. Kehidupannya yang bagi orang lain begitu sempurna sebenarnya hanyalah skenario yang sudah diatur oleh ayahnya. Dan seumur hidupnya Qin Wei Yi hanya boleh menjalankan skenario itu.

Sun Ge as Jiang BrotherSatu-satunya masa dimana dia merasa bahagia adalah 13 tahun yang lalu. Waktu itu karena teman-temannya tidak puas dia menjadi juara renang lalu memukulinya hingga kakinya patah dan membuat dia harus dirawat di rumah sakit. Disana dia bertemu dengan seorang gadis yang tidak pernah bicara dan hanya menggunakan memo untuk berkomunikasi.

Zhao Shen Shen adalahh gadis yatim piatu yang tidak bisa bicara karena kecelakaan. Wei Yi yang suka ketenangan merasa menemukan teman untuk berbagi dalam keheningan. Wei Yi memanggilnya dengan sebutan ”Makhluk Planet Mars”, sedangkan Shen Shen memanggil Wei Yi dengan sebutan ”Kaki Gips”. Mereka saling berbagi. Mereka mendengarkan musik yang sama dan berbagi rahasia yang sama. Dan sebelum mereka berpisah, mereka berjanji untuk bertemu kembali pada natal tahun 2006.

Tiga belas tahun kemudian Qin Wei Yi sudah menjadi pengusaha muda yang sukses. Dia berubah menjadi seorang yang sombong dan berdarah dingin. Sedangkan Zhao Shen Shen tumbuh menjadi gadis yang ceria dan penuh semangat hidup. Suatu hari tanpa sengaja takdir mempertemukan mereka kembali.

Pada awalnya, kedua orang yang bertolak belakang kepribadiannya ini selalu berdiri di sisi yang berseberangan. Perselisihan demi perselisihan terjadi di antara mereka. Tapi akhirnya pertengkaran-pertengkaran itu justru membuat mereka semakin dekat. Shen Shen membuat hati Wei Yi yang dingin mulai tersentuh. Dan kehangatan itu membuat Wei Yi untuk pertama kalinya merasa menjadi dirinya yang sebenarnya. Menjadi Qin Wei Yi yang dia inginkan, bukan Qin Wei Yi putra Qin Zhen Yang. Dan dia menyukai dirinya yang seperti itu.

Sayangnya saat Wei Yi menyadari Shen Shen adalah “Makhluk Planet Mars” yang selama ini dia rindukan, dokter justru menvonis hidupnya hanya tinggal tiga bulan lagi. Akankah cinta masa kecil mereka berakhir dengan bahagia? Dapatkah mereka melawan takdir? Ataukah justru cinta mereka hanya akan menjadi sebuah tragedi?

Lalu bagaimana pula nasib Mi Xiao Guang, tunangan Qin Wei Yi, serta Zuo Jun, laki-laki yang selama tiga belas tahun selalu mencintai Zhao Shen Shen? Bisakah mereka menemukan kebahagiaan yang menjadi milik mereka sendiri?

Sinopsis :

Xia Zhi Xing, seorang gadis penipu perhiasan yang pernah dipenjara, seumur hidupnya belum ada seorang pun yang pernah berkata padanya bahwa ia mempercayainya. Kecuali Zhong Tian Qi. Belum ada satu orang pun yang pernah bersedia mempertaruhkan nyawa untuk membelanya, kecuali Zhong Tian Qi. Dan tak seorang pun pernah dengan begitu tulus melakukan hal-hal manis untuknya : menemaninya melewati satu hari patah hati, menyanyikan lagu cinta di jendelanya, serta menyebutnya sebagai Lucky Star—bintang keberuntungan.

Tetapi kemudian Xia Zhi Xing mengetahui bahwa ternyata pacarnya itu adalah tuan muda kedua dari direktur perusahaan perhiasan besar E.Shine serta seorang pembalap terkenal. Cinta mereka berdua dengan tiba-tiba dihadapkan pada jurang perbedaan status.

Xia Zhi Xing bermaksud menemui Tian Qi untuk mencari kejelasan—seberapa berartikah dirinya bagi Tian Qi, namun ia malah mendapatkan kenyataan yang jauh lebih pahit. Di hadapan seluruh pers yang ada, Tian Qi menolak mengakui hubungan istimewa mereka yang sebenarnya. Ditambah lagi Tian Qi malah mengumumkan pertunangannya dengan gadis lain. Gadis yang jauh lebih terpandang dan jauh lebih berpendidikan. Gadis yang lebih pantas untuk menjadi pendamping Zhong Tian Qi. Ketimbang dirinya.

Bagaimanakah cinta Xia Zhi Xing dan Zhong Tian Qi akan bertahan saat dihadapkan pada ayah Tian Qi yang menganggap Xia Zhi Xing tidak layak untuk menjadi menantunya? Belum lagi dengan adanya seorang Ou Ya Rou, wanita cantik dan designer terkenal E.Shine yang merupakan kekasih Zhong Tian Qi di masa lalu, yang ternyata masih mencintai Tian Qi.

Kisah ini bertambah seru dengan munculnya tokoh ketiga lain, Han Zhi Yin, yang menjadi saingan Zhong Tian Qi dalam memperebutkan kembali hati Xia Zhi Xing lima tahun kemudian. Han Zhi Yin adalah seorang aktor tenar playboy yang menjadi bintang iklan perhiasan E.Shine. Dibesarkan di Thailand sebagai yatim piatu, ia kemudian menemukan bahwa dirinya adalah putra ketiga direktur perusahaan E.Shine, Zhong Wei. Yang berarti juga adalah adik tiri Zhong Tian Qi, musuh cintanya sendiri.

Synopsis :
It all begins in the early 1900s, in the province of Dong Bei. At that time, in Ha Er Bin, Lu Zhen Hua was a great general, known to people as the brave Hei Pao Zi, “The Black Leopard”. Fu Wen Pei was a common girl who came from a intellectual family. At one occasion on the street, she accidentally falls right before Lu Zhen Hua. What was a split second meeting turned into a lifelong commitment when Lu Zhen Hua quickly demanded that she would be his eighth wife and the wedding was held the very next day. A year soon past and Lu Zhen Hua meets another girl, this one by the name of Wang Xue Qin. She was soon brought into the family as well, as Lu Zhen Hua’s ninth and last wife…

Many years has passed, Lu Zhen Hua is now a man living in the shadows of his past. His whole family had been left in Dong Bei when they moved to Shanghai, and the only remaining are his eight and ninth wife with their children. Lu Er Hao, Lu Ru Ping, Lu Meng Ping and Lu Er Jie belonging to Xue Qin. And Lu Yi Ping belonging to Wen Pei.

One fine day, He Shu Huan and Du Fei, two daring reporters encounter Ru Ping during an exciting chase. She helps them upon request and later finds out that they’re friends of her brother Lu Er Hao. Little did Shu Huan know that in the short meeting, Lu Ru Ping had already fallen deeply in love with him.

Six months later, on a rainy night, it was time for Lu Yi Ping to go and collect her monthly allowance from her father. Because for five years ago, soon after the family had arrived in Shanghai, Wen Pei along with Yi Ping were kicked out of the large residence of Lu Zhen Hua. They were then forced to live in poverty with the small allowance of twenty dollars per month. That night, Yi Ping became desperate and wanted more money because she and her mother couldn’t live on twenty dollars alone anymore. After some struggle, Lu Zhen Hua resorted to violence and used a horsewhip to whip Yi Ping while the whole family in the residence watched this all happen. Stubborn and strong-willed, Yi Ping declared that she was no longer part of the family and vowed revenge on them all. At that same night Yi Ping bumps into Shu Huan, but rejects him when she finds out that he is a friend of “family of that side”, as she refers to the family in the residence. What she unknowingly leaves behind is a longing and curiosity in Shu Huan’s heart.

The story is of how Yi Ping tries to take revenge for her mother’s sufferings and her, while torn between trying to find the meaning of love and forgiveness in her disfigured world. It is a story of the love that she and Shu Huan grew, under the most pressured and difficult circumstances. A story of Shu Huan’s dedication to patiently teach love and forgiveness to Yi Ping. It is a story of a father’s harsh relationship with his unwanted daughter and how it is rekindled. It is a story of an impossible crush, that somehow became reality. It is a story of a wife, forever faithful to her husband, and another’s unfaithfulness. As a whole it’s story of true love, compassion, revenge, lust, family, relationships, war, victory, friendship, respect, secrets, lies, deception, forgiveness, power, good, evil and much more.

Bahkan nama pun sangat biasa. Karakterku adalah pengertian dan suka menolong. Tapi sebenarnya aku adalah seorang pengecut. Meskipun tidak suka, aku tidak berani menolak orang lain dan tetap mengerjakan mereka semua.

Seseorang yang tidak mempunyai karakter sama sekali, itulah karakterku.

Ah, aku juga mempunyai sebuah nasehat untuk kalian semua. Setidaknya saat kamu masuk sebuah kamar, pastikan bahwa itu benar-benar kamarmu atau kau akan berakhir sepertiku. Tidur dengan lelaki tak di kenal yang ternyata adalah direktur muda dari salah satu perusahaan terbesar di Asia, Ji Cun Xi. Dan hamil. Dan terpaksa menikah dengan dia.

Jiang Meng, para wanita menjulukinya dengan sebutan pangeran yang paling menggoda.

Dibawah ancaman sang iblis Jiang Meng, Qi Yue akhirnya terpaksa bersedia menjadi budak suruhannya. Tapi kesialannya belum cukup sampai disitu. Suatu hari Jiang Meng tiba-tiba muncul di depan rumahnya. Ya Tuhan! Rupanya dia merupakan putra dari pria yang akan menikah dengan ibunya, yang berarti akan menjadi adik tirinya.

Akankah Qi Yue berhasil menyatakan cintanya kepada Yuan Yi, atau justru dia akan jatuh ke pelukan sang iblis yang mempesona? Apa pula yang akan terjadi jika kakak beradik itu jatuh cinta? Akankah cinta terlarang itu berhasil melewati segala rintangan yang menghadang mereka?
