C-drama: 水月洞天 (Paradise)


I can't really call this a HK drama since it's definitely a Chinese mainland production w/ at least 4 HK actors/actresses (Ada Choi, Monica Chan [both were former Miss HKs, well Ada was 2nd runner-up], Norman Tsui, and Cheng Pei Pei [you all should remem her from Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, if you've seen the movie]), and has been so far only aired in mainland China and TW--the rest of the cast are Chinese mainland. It has just been recently aired in TW several months back, which was then followed by the 2nd part to the series, called Legend of Magic Mirror (of course the official english title here in the US is, Paradise II).

to start airing Sept 27 from 1pm-2pm on KSCI.

official hp (well one of the offical hps...I'm gonna look to see if there's another): http://www.ctv.com.tw/event/2004/moon/

I'll try to find a synopsis (better than the 1 posted at kscitv) and character profile.

Re: TW/C-drama: Paradise (水月洞天)


taken from the Asianfanatics forum (which I think was initally taken from the TVSF forum):

synopsis 1:

Shui dong Tian is a legendary place beyond the horizons a sacred place of martial arts. A person called Koo Kai Tian, many soldiers were in his hands and was fighting for Chew family until Tang Mu, soldier Yee Zhong who were made to release the people but was rescued by Xin Gu soldier which made Tong Si Family move into the inner side of the mountain. Due to the soldiers who wants to attack the Tong Si family, the family was to stay in the inner mountain called "Watery Moon Hollow Sky" to be safe and forever was not allowed to escape the inner mountain!

500 years later.....

Tong Si Family's elder Tong Jan was very sick, his two sons Tong Tsim and Tong Xin privately left "Watery Moon Hollow Sky" to safe his father and to find a medicine which can make the person alive again called "Huet Yu Yee". Older son Tong Bot went and brought back Tong Xin but mistood and took back a women wearing men clothes's Dou Dou back to the inner mountain. Tong Tsim saw his father the last time and haven't yet listened to his father's last words, rather quickly gave the position of his father to oldest son Tong Bot, told him to leave "Watery Moon Hollow Sky", and the medicing "Huet Yu Yee" has let Dou Dou accidently stepped on and broken. Tong Bot, Tong Tsim, Dou Dou and Bot Xue Dor was not allowed to leave "Watery Moon Hollow Sky" until they can open Bing Fong Zi Fa and find his lost brother Tong Xin.
...Tong Bo, who have never seen the the outside world, was forced to face the changes. It is like he has just fell from grace to begain his encounters with struggles and fight the mortal world as well as a destined complicated love life.

synopsis 2:
"Watery Moon Hollow Sky" is rumored to be a nirvana, a precious place for martial art, where a mystical clan called "Tong" living there. Every member of the "Tong" clan has certain special talent such as knowing how to communicate with animals(sidenote: ie like Dr. Dolittle), having a broad knowledge on astronomy and nature, and possessing powerful and mysterious kungfu. Legend has it that the "Tong" Clan is a noble clan from the Warring States Period; in the midst of being annihilated, General Long Teng saved them and guided them to seal the entrance of this place hence they're isolated from the world.

After 500 years of serenity, people do not remember "Watery Moon Hollow Sky" and "Tong Clan"; all people in the world remember as is a "legend" and "forbidden place" that everyone wants to attain to.

Story begins on an evening when the tribe leader of "Watery Moon Hollow Sky" dies. According to the clan's rule, the eldest son "Tong Bo" should take his place as the tribe leader. And in the process of "Tong Bo" accepting his leader position, "Tong Zhan" whose his younger brother kicks "Tong Bo" out of "Watery Moon Hollow Sky" basing on the tribe leader(ie their father)'s last word. In just one day, "Tong Bo" experiences tragedy and pain, he who never see the outside world before now feels like he has fallen from heaven to earth to experience conflicts in the world and complicated relationships that are destined to happen in his life.

Re: TW/C-drama: Paradise (水月洞天)

Image
Long Teng (portrayed by Yu Bo): Male, 36 years old General of the royal army. Ancestor of the "Long" Clan 500 years ago. He and the tribe-leader of "Tong" Clan are best friends. Sacrifice himself to save the "Tong" clan from annihilation.

Tong Bo (portrayed by Yu Bo): Male, 26 years old
Next in line to be the tribe-leader of "Watery Moon Hollow Sky" clan. Confident and dashing, eager to learn and has an excellent memory. Though he can fight very well b/c he is very good in martial art, he perceives the world from the sideline and doesn't like to fight with people. Unmotivated, all he wants to do is live in the wild, away from people, but his father's death forces him to step forward into the outside world where struggle and chaos are.

Image
Tong Zhan (portrayed by Yang Jun Yi)Male, 25 years old
passionate, impulsive, arrogant and likes to win. He knows the secret of his elder brother--Tong Bo's origin, so he expels Tong Bo from "Watery moon hollow sky" as Tong Bo is about to accept his position as the tribe leader. B/c of expelling Tong Bo, fellow members of “Watery Moon Hollow Sky” mistaken his intention so Tong Zhan has no choice but to leave his tribe and goes to the outside world also.

Image
Tong Xin (portrayed by Zhang jin)Male, 20 years old
Younger brother of Tong Bo and Tong Zhan. A disease he has when he is little makes him into a honest and righteous man. Simple, naive and curious has very high martial art skill but he cannot distinguish what's good and evil so he can be good when he meets good people/situation, and can be bad when he meets bad people/situation.

no pic avail
Yin Hao(Portrayed by Liu quan)Male, 60 years old
Quiet and reserved. Master of "Yu-Jian villa" and is a referee for any sorts of affairs who is deemed appropriate by the world for the job. Everyone respects and looks up to his morality and martial art craftsmanship. His biggest regret is that his daughters are stronger than his sons.

Image

he is the younger brother of Yin Hao. He looks like he's straightforward and sincere but he's actually insidious and ambitious. After knowing the legend of "Dragon-God" in "Watery Moon Hollow sky", he murders his brother so that he can manages "Dragon-god" to become "god" himself. From then on, he portrays 2 persons so that he can provoke people in the world to search for the whereabouts of "Watery moon hollow sky".

Son of Yin Hao, urbane, good in both literature and combat, however he's indecisive and coward. He knows his uncle--Yin Zhong's ambition but he doesn't tell his father and doesn't have the ability to oppose his uncle. He becomes a good friend with Tong Bo but harms his good friend again and again due to his younger sister--Tian Xue's manipulation, therefore leading him one step closer to deviation.

Image
Yin Tian chou (portrayed by Shi xiao Long)Male, 17 years old
optimistic, his kung-fu is top rated, and his parents are both dead, has vengeance to pay to Yin Zhong.

Image
Yin Tian xue (portrayed by Monica Chan)Female, 22 years old
Daughter of Yin Hao, younger sister of Yin Tian Qi, reticent, decisive and commanding. She always fawns on her father but her father never pay attention to her, so her feelings toward her father is both love and hate. She knows her uncle kills her dad but she can still carry on with her uncle like nothing has happened. The one she loves is Tong Zhan. After her unsuccessful bribe to lure Tong Zhan to work for her, she turns her interest to Tong Xin who has no comprehension of the evil of this world.

Image
Dou Dou (portrayed by Ada Choi)Female, 21 years old
clever and agile, her martial art skill however is absolutely bad, yet she likes to provoke others to fight with her. Unless she collapses, otherwise, she will not admit defeat. Her skill in burglary is fantastic but she always gets into trouble due to her attraction to fight with people. So, whenever she steals with Zhao Yun and Zhu Er, her job is to watch out for any unnecessary people or movement. She falls in love for Tong Bo but she finds it hard to get Bo (who happens to be a free spirit) to be interested in her.

Image
Zhao Yun (portrayed by Yang Guang)Female, 23 years old
gentle but connived, grows up with Dou Dou and Zhu er. They originally are best friends like real sisters but since she and Dou Dou like Tong Bo simultaneously, she concocts to harm Dou dou, but what she doesn't know is that her biggest enemy is Yin Tian Xue.

Image
Zhu Er(played by Shen Xiao yan)female, 18 years old
sportive and kindhearted, timid but likes to mind business not of her own. Whenever she steals, there'd be clues left behind b/c she's too nice. Her biggest hobby is to look for gossip to talk about and spreading it but b/c she knows too much and doesn't keep those secret so often there're people chasing after her to kill her.

Image
Han Ba Tian (portrayed by Zhang Qian)Male, about 60 years old
cowardly but he's actually a nice guy. Doesn't marry anyone b/c of Long Po. Adopts Zhao Yun, Dou dou and Zhu er these 3 girls yet no one in the world knows his relationship with them. His "3-flower shop" is often mistaken as a brothel but the place is actually the biggest retail of stolen goods.

Image

Image
Long Po (portrayed by Zheng Pei Pei)female, about 50 years old
still pretty at this age, though she looks cool she's actually amiable, sharp-tongue but a kind-hearted person. Lover of Yin Hao when they were both young, they miss each other due to some misunderstanding. Later, she follows Tong Bo into "Watery Moon Hollow Sky" in order to take care of Tong bo.

Image
Gou Zi (portrayed by Yu cheng xi)male, 20 years old
Han Ba Tian's worker. Cowardly and lustful, likes to gamble but never has any luck winning, likes to drink but never have the stomach for it. He'll serve anyone who has money and sneer at anyone who doesn't have any.

Re: TW/C-drama: Paradise (水月洞天)


just read that this series had been also aired in Korea sometime in January? well not sure if it did air, but this is what was written:

This news comes to us courtesy of Yu Bo's EClub (thank you wjjing).

SYDT is scheduled to air soon. Apparently it will air in Korea (韩国 is Korea, right?) in Jan. And the station that will air SYDT first in China will be a station in Hang Zhou. It will probably begin airing in Hang Zhou on the 2nd of Feb. Promo events for SYDT will be held in Hang Zhou on the 2nd and 3rd of Feb.

According to someone from Ada's EClub, the lastest news coming from HK is that Ada will be unable to attend these promo events.

Also, from Ada's EClub, the series has begun renting in parts of China and early word is that it's pretty good so far.

So keep your eyes peeled. It'll be little while more before it hits the international market but it should be soon.

enjoy

[水月洞天]将会在1月末在韩国首播。

另外,水月洞天的内地首播电视台将会是杭州电视台(也就是原先首播冒险王的那个台)。时间大约是在2月2日(具体时间请大家关注这几天的杭州电视报或是杭州电视台的节目预告)

另外,水月洞天的主要演员们将于2月2日--2月3日在杭州进行首播宣传会,而且到时候会有非常精彩的表演节目噢。杭州的朋友们真是有眼福。

希望杭州的朋友们多多关注水月洞天噢。因为这是一部非常棒的剧集。

Hi Mike,

I wasn't able to find any English summaries Googling. Have you tried the "Asianfanatics" forums?

There is a episode summary in Chinese on this site:

http://www.chinatv.com.tw/event/2004/moon/

Perhaps some Chinese friends can help you translate the summaries outlined in this website.

HTH.
