This drama is a retelling of a well-know love story between a goddess and a mortal.
The story started off with Goddess Xiao Qi (Ariel Lin) committing a major transgression. As a punishment, she was stripped of all her powers and banished to the mortal realm. She could only regain her goddess status by accomplishing 100 charitable acts.
Alone and helpless, she was rescued by a kind-hearted and earnest mortal named Dong Yong (Hu Ge). He taught her what’s like to be a mortal. And through him, she learned to love and be loved in return.
But, gods are forbidden to love mortals. And, when their love affair was discovered, heaven guards descended onto the mortal realm to separate the two lovers. In the ensuing struggle, Dong Yong was severely injured and left to die. Pitying their fate, Xiao Qi’s sisters sent forth Xiang Xue Hai (Han Xue) to save Dong Yong’s life.

“Tian Wai Fei Xian” is adapted from a traditional Chinese folklore story called “Tian Xian Pei.” In the folklore, the seventh celestial maiden sees a poor man (Dong Yong) who has just lost his parents. Out of curiosity and consideration, she secretly leaves the celestial world (tian ting) and eventually marries Dong Yong. They manage to live a few earth years secretly without her father (Yu Di) discovering them. However, once Yu Di realizes that his seventh daughter has married a mortal, he becomes enraged and sends his guards to arrest the seventh princess. After many struggles and attempts to be together, the seventh princess and Dong Yong succumb to their tragic fate and settle with only meeting each other once a year during July seventh in the Lunar Calendar.

Xiao Qi (played by Lin Yi Chen) is the Jade Emperor’s (Xu Jing Jiang) youngest daughter. A bubbly and playful girl by nature, she often wreaks havoc in the celestial palace.
There is a prison there that contains deities who have broken the celestial law. Xiao Qi’s second sister the Weaving Maiden has been there for the past 50 years, having fallen in love with a mortal. Also locked up in the prison is a guileful leopard cat which succeeds in conning Xiao Qi to release it. The Jade Emperor is furious upon hearing the news.
In anger, he destroys Xiao Qi’s celestial powers and banishes her to Earth. She arrives to the foreign land with two missions – first, to find the Weaving Maiden’s lover Lao Fu Zi and find out if he still loves her; and secondly to capture the leopard cat. Privately though, Xiao Qi is intensely curious to the charms and attractions of Earthly life which has held many deities spellbound.
On Earth, three friends – Dong Yong (Hu Ge), Shangguan Hao Qi (Bobby Dou) and Fu Yuanbao (Tae) – are in their school. Xiao Qi tumbles onto Earth, landing squarely on Dong Yong, thus heralding the events that will bind the two together.
Xiao Qi suffers immensely without her magical powers; the leopard cat also seduces Hao Qi and makes things difficult for her. Fortunately, she is watched over by her several sisters who deliver her out of trouble each time. Xiao Qi finds the Weaving Maiden’s lover, who turns out to be Dong Yong’s teacher. Lao Fu Zi has kept his promise and has been waiting for the Weaving Maiden all this while. On the other hand, Xiao Qi and Dong Yong are slowly falling in love with each other too.
Er Lang Deity, sent to Earth by the Jade Emperor, subdues the conniving leopard fox, thus ending Xiao Qi’s missions on Earth. He calls for her return and Xiao Qi and Dong Yong’s lives thus mirror that of the Weaving Maiden and Lao Fu Zi.
Dong Yong is unwilling to be like his teacher and insists on finding Xiao Qi. He hopes to convince the Jade Emperor with his sincerity but… how can a mortal ascend to the celestial palace?
His worries are unfounded; the six fairies are touched by Dong Yong’s love and secretly inform him the way to the celestial palace: at the end of the world lies a magical land where a magical tree grows. This tree connects Earth to Heaven and determined mortals can thus climb this ladder to Heaven.
Dong Yong climbs the tree for 99 days and finally reaches the celestial palace. He meets the Jade Emperor and under the pleas of several deities, the Jade Emperor finally allows Xiao Qi and Dong Yong to return to Earth, but only for 100 days.
Thousands of years have passed…
On Earth, in a noisy street corner in Shanghai in the year 2004, there is a book store called Tian Ya Hai Jiao (The End of the World). Inside, a young man looking very much like Dong Yong accidentally bumps into a young girl looking very much like Xiao Qi. Just as the girl is about to lash out at him, both their handphones ring, sounding the same ringtone.
Xiao Qi and Dong Yong are reunited and their love story is about to begin!
