Based on the same Chinese folk tale as Chin Siu Tung's classic film Chinese Ghost Story (starring Leslie Cheung), this drama brings a new twist to an age-old story. Qian Nu You Hen boasts an all-star cast, including Hong Kong singer Daniel Chan, Taiwanese actress Barbie Hsu (Big S), TVB veterans Gallen Lo and Jessica Hsuan, and martial arts star Wu Jing. Writer Chan Sap Sam, the mind behind ATV's My Date with a Vampire series, updates the familiar tale of ghost-mortal love into an epic battle between good and evil.
Evil forces are waging war on humanity and Xiao Qian (Barbie Hsu) is a key figure in the battle, but all she wants is to experience true love. She ventures to the mortal world and falls in love with Cai Chen (Daniel Chan), unwittingly pulling him into a dangerous world of spirits and sorcery. Fortunately, they are joined by the perpetually bickering Liu Yun (Wu Jing) and Hong Ye (Jessica Hsuan), who are both skilled in swordplay. As the world heads toward a final battle, the fated couples must face a myriad of obstacles between heaven and earth to stay together and bring peace to an embattled land.
