Synopsis

The story is set in the Qing dynasty and revolves around four main characters: Li Mu Bai (Qiu Xin Zhi), Shu Lien (Huang Yi), Jiao Lung (Shui Ling), and Xiao Ho (Peter Ho). They are from different backgrounds, however, fate would later bring them together and their lives become intertwined. Li Mu Bai is from Wu Dan sect, he is very good at kung-fu, however, he has very little experience of life. He is on his way to the capital bringing with him a very precious sword called Qing Ming as a gift to Prince Tai (Zheng Chen Guang).

During his journey, Mu Bai crosses path with Shu Lien who is on her way home. Shu Liens father has a famous reputation for transporting goods. Shu Lien is also very good in her kung-fu but in opposite to Mu Bai, she is very experienced in life. She has already been betrothed to Meng Si Zhao. However, once she is home, she discovers that an old enemy of her father has attacked the family and killed her brother. Her father urges her to transport the last goods for him and she promises him that she would return in time for his ceremony of withdrawing from the mo lam world. She once again meets Mu Bai, who accidentally opens the goods and Shu Lien discovers that it is actually her fathers letter to her telling her to flee home since the enemy might seek her out. Shu Lien returns home but it is too late. Her whole family has been killed. Mu Bai escorts her to her fiancees house, only to find out that her fiancee has been killed in the capital city. Heartbroken and having nowhere to turn to, Shu Lien loses the will to live and even seeks death when her enemy drags her down the mountain. However, Mu Bai, who vows to never let her hand go has made her change her mind. Mu Bai has unknowingly fallen in love with Shu Lien. Before he leaves Wu Dan, Mu Bais only goal is to complete the mission and to return to the sect to become a monk. Yet, meeting Shu Lien, a very gentle, caring, and loyal woman has changed Mu Bais goal in life. He now longs to know the feeling of holding someones hand to eternity. Seeing her devastated state, her father-in-law drops hints that she should go the capital and visit a shop selling silk. Yet Shu Lien has also unknowingly fallen in love with Mu Bai.

During this time, in the border, there is a girl named Jiao Lung, who is a rebel at heart. She is betrothed to the son of a very powerful family in the capital city. However, Jiao Lung has a thirst for life and adventure. She has been secretly taught kung-fu by her teacher, Master Kao Lan Tsu, who happens to own a kung-fu scripture that belongs to Wu Dan sect. On his way to the capital city, Mu Bai befriends Master Kao who sees in him the potential to do something great. Master Kao is the leader of a secret sect that aims to overthrow the Emperor. He also wants to return the kung-fu scripture to Wu Dan.

One day, Jiao Lung disguises herself as a soldier and follows her father when he leads an army to attack the bandits. Jiao Lung comes to face with Xiao Ho and is humiliated when he discovers that she is a female. Jiao Lung vows to seek him out for revenge. However, she is attracted to his freedom and his carefree, adventurous lifestyle, the lifestyle that she would never have while he admires her unbreakable spirit. They fall in love with each other. Her father has been appointed a position in the capital by Prince Tai and her family moves to the city. Xiao Ho, who cannot fight his passion for her, deserts his gang and follows Jiao Lung.

Once in the city, Mu Bai and Shu Lien find out that her fiancee is still alive, however, he is living under a new identity and coldly rejects her. Mu Bai realises his love for Shu Lien yet knowing the true reason why Shu Liens fiancee rejects her (because he is involved in a secret sect led by Master Kao that aims to overthrow the emperor and he does not want her to be involved), Mu Bai cannot bring himself to express his feelings to Shu Lien though she feels very much attracted to him. Mu Bai, being an honest and kind-hearted man, even tries to bring Shu Lien and her fiancee together much to the frustration of everyone else.

Prince Tai adopts Shu Lien as his daughter because he sees her potential and values her loyalty. He also wants Mu Bai to work for him yet Mu Bai discovers that the Prince is a very cold-blooded, ambitious and scheming man who is planning to overthrow the emperor. So Prince Tai kills Shu Liens fiancee and casts the blame on Mu Bai. Shu Lien, blinded by her bitterness towards Mu Bais cold rejection and her loyalty to Prince Tai, vows to kill Mu Bai.

Meanwhile, Xiao Ho kidnaps Jiao Lung on her weddings day but soon after that, he discovers that her father was involved in the execution of his parents. He challenges Jiao Lungs father but they come to an understanding instead and the hatred is resolved. Unfortunately, Jiao Lungs father dies in the small earthquake. Jiao Lung thinks that Xiao Ho killed her father so she also vows to avenge her fathers death.

There is a myth associated with the Wu Dan kung-fu scripture and the Qing Ming sword as these two objects hold the key to a very valuable treasure. In order to open the door to the treasure, there is an additional condition must be met. There must be people who have the birth signs of Water, Fire, Earth and Wood and they must also know Wu Dan kung-fu. Those four persons are Mu Bai, Shu Lien, Xiao Ho, and Jiao Lung.

How will these love-hate relationships be resolved and how will Prince Tai get the four persons to open up the treasure for him?
