Move through Fantasy and Reality while watching Asian Drama!
Description: In an unspecified time when epidemics run rampant, botanist Yan Guo (Aloys Chen) and his fiance-assistant Baobao (Zhang Yiyan) move to Moon Island, a nature reserve, to research the curing properties of rare plants. As is customary, they pray to the magical Eros Tree to cement their love, unaware that they have to undergo a severe trial, in which Baobao must remain unseen to Yan for three years in exchange for his life. Baobao transforms into a butterfly, and like the Little Mermaid, she watches two other women ? horticulturalist Bailan (Kueh Lun-Mei) and journalist Yang Lin (Gigi Leung) ? court her lonely boyfriend, but cannot speak out her feelings. Cheung does not exploit the plot potential to create a melodramatic love quadrangle. Instead, he opts for a more down-to-earth, feel-good emotional arc by describing how Yan?s platonic friendship with the two women motivates a breakthrough in his research. ? via reuters.com
