Summary
Mei Langang is beautiful and feminine onstage while handsome and manly offstage. He becomes a household name in his youth when he defeats the famous Peking Opera master Shisan in a popularity challenge. Later, his affair with vibrant and direct Peking Opera diva Meng Xiaodong saddened his wife Fu Zhifang and mentor-cum-companion Qiu Rubai. They try desperately to stop it because they knew that with Meng, Mei no longer feels lonely. But without that loneliness, Mei's career will be destroyed. In the end, Mei gains universal fame as he performs all over the world, lifting the traditionally lowly status of actors in China. But in the process, he may have paid too great a price
