Zhou Xin Lian and Quan Jiu Chen first met when they we're only ten years old. Right when they first met, they easily became close. Xin Lian would always rely on Jiu Chen and Jiu Chen loves the feeling of being like a knight. They are each other's first love.
They got engaged when Xin Lian turns sixteen, while Jiu Chen was eighteen. Their parents took their closeness as a chance to expand their businesses. It was agreed that they would get married once Xin Lian turns twenty-one.
But, an opportunity was given to Xin Lian.
Ever since she was a kid, her dream was to star at a huge play in Broadway and be recognized for her skills, not for her status as a child of her rich and powerful parents. So, since she was a kid, she took lessons for singing, dancing and acting. She worked her hardest until she was given a huge role in her debut stage.
Coincidentally, a famous director in Broadway was on a vacation to China when he fortunately got to watch and loved her performance. He offered her a chance to be in one of his plays in Broadway. He said that her role would be small at first, but if she continuous her outstanding act, it wouldn't be impossible for her to play a leading role in one of his plays.
Xin Lian immediately wants to grab his offer, but there's a catch. For five years, she must devote herself to acting.
She has to live in New York, no dating, no social media, she can only call her family or friends after she finished her routine rehearsals, she can't go out to play nor can she go home to China.
For five years, she must be the Zhou Xin Lian who only has acting in her life.
Of course, Xin Lian hesitated at first and couldn't answer the director immediately. So, he gave her a week to think it over.
In the end, Xin Lian couldn't let this huge opportunity slip by.
She left Jiu Chen without telling him the real reason why. She knows that Jiu Chen would persistently visits her in New York althoughhe knows that they couldn't be together. She knows that he would be her biggest temptation. So, she can only tell him to wait for her for 5 years…
"I'll surely come back when I turn twenty-one to marry you Xiao Chen. I promise."
And although her parents were against her decision, she still took the flight to New York to achieve her dreams.
Then, many things happened, and five years passed her by in a breeze.
She finally got to play the lead role in one of the biggest productions in Broadway. She became famousfor the roles she played and achieved her dreams at twenty-one. Finally having no regrets, Xin Lian returns to China to explain everything to Jiu Chen and to fulfill her long time promise to him. But when she returns, it was already too late…
