Zhao Ting Yu and Zhao Ting Yuan are twins who were separated at a young age. With their grandfather getting older and older sister Ting Yuan having contracted a serious illness, Ting Yu was brought back to protect the household and take charge of the family business. To stabilize the Zhao family business, the two sisters must overcome their initial estrangement and work together to withstand the scheming Jing Qing Yu. Fighting alongside them are Ting Yuan’s fiancé Du Yu Feng and Jing Qing Yu’s own son, Jing Wei. In the process, Ting Yu and Ting Yuan realize their own strengths as they taste both the sweetness and bitterness of maturation, but most importantly, they finally experience the true meaning of “family.”

      Au contraire re dubbed voice to get a medium voice (?) that sounds pleasant (?) to the viewers’ ears? If anything at all, the dubbing is to annoy the viewers. Unless the drama is sooo good that we are willing to suffer through the dubbing, most dramas made in China so far are not worthy.

  • happy

    Love the main characters! Ep 1 to 3 seems not bad. ^^

  • Mayuumii

    This sounds a lot like 100% Senorita, but I’m still super excited to watch it! ^o^

    From the song: ting yuan die (funeral scene); yu feng and jing wei at the airport (running away), and at the end, ting yu getting marry to yu feng, with jing wei coming back to give his blessing… So only half a fairy tale! Who agrees with me?

  • loverace

    i’m waitting for so longgggg time and….. a bit dissapointed

  • jenny

    when is ep 31 coming out?

  • loverace

    thanks for uploading ep 31!! =))

  • Iillusiional

    Is 32 out?

  • loverace

    there is 33!! hahaha omg…. is that mean yu feng will choose to be with ting xuan?? how bout jing wei??!!

    • Xiewendy

      Ting xuan is dead! But because of the the wish in the bottle, he couldn’t let go…I think he run away at his wedding and come back at the end of the movie ( after few years )!

      • Riki

        If he wasn’t sure of his feelings, why did he agree to the marriage ? Didn’t he think of Ting Yu’s feelings if he ran away from the wedding ? It makes him a big jerk. I hope Ting Yu won’t accept him again if he did run away from wedding and then came back for her later, even years later. 

  • I think the one Ting Xuan ultimately loves is Yu Feng 🙁 Even when she was about to die she went to dig back up the ‘promise’ they made when they were young 🙁 
    I wonder what Ting Xuan wrote on the piece of paper!!!!! 

    • OMG now I kinda ship yu feng and ting xuan :'(!!! 

      Also they could have developed the jing wei and ting yu storyline as well!!! 

      • I think Yu Feng does care for Ting Xuan and love her more than he think he does!! 

        and Poor Jing Wei he loves both of them and he doesn’t know 🙁 

        • Many people have said Ting Xuan is really pitiful but in a way both guys in the end ultimately love her and not Ting Yu 🙁 


          • omg they should extend this drama so then it can be a love triangle between ting yu – yu feng and jing wei!! 

    • Riki

      I think it is very selfish of Ting Xuan to hold on Yu Feng with that promise (If that was written on the paper, havent seen ep.33 yet). Knowing she is dying, she should just let go rather than making Yu Feng ‘guilty’ about it. By holding on to him, Yu Feng and Ting Yu will never to be happy together. She loves her sister and yet she is destroying her happiness. 

    • kiki_marshmello

       ” i am the happiest.” 🙂

  • Sad

    Oh my, I actually cried when Ting xuan passed away that part!!!! Soooo soooo sad!! 🙁

  • loverace

    dissapointed with the ending………………. means both of them love both ting yu and ting xuan.. and the worse is even they dont realize what is LIKE and what is LOVE… =((

    • yeah I’m disappointed with the ending as well! They both couldn’t tell if they loved Ting Yu or Ting Xuan more!! That’s so crazy! I wish they both came to a point of realisation to WHICH twin they loved cause at least that would be some form of closure!! 

      So in the end…. I reckon both of the guys love Ting Xuan but since she passed away… they resort to Ting Yu. THATS SO UNFAIR!!! 

      BUT I RECKON IT SHOULD BE THE OTHER WAY AROUND SIGH since Ting Yu seems like the protagonist of this drama

  • Ivy Lau

    really dissapointed with the ending!!!!

  • Cung_elisabeth

    the ending make me accept,why yi feng  not together with siau yi.just like that yi feng go,,,,,

  • Guest

    Arrghh…. Dislike the ending!!!! So disappointing.

  • Sad

    Why didn’t ting yu and yu feng get married at the end!? Didn’t expect the ending will be like this as yu feng seems and ting yu both love each other. Though is unfair to jing wei and he love both twins but i still hope that the ending was ting yu and yu feng together! Disappointing ending 🙁

    • Carol

      Ya same 

  • Carol

    Haiix the end not really good -.- 

    I hope have 
    童话二分之一 II

    • I want a 
      童话二分之一 II too!! But Lee Joon Hyuk enlisted for military service so if there is he won’t be in the drama 🙁

      • Twdramaaddict

        Not much point if that’s the case;( lee joon hyuk is so hot!!

        • Carol

          YAH he look hot and cool

      • Carol

        Ya lor 

  • Alicia_mjx

    Dislike the ending so much -_____-

  • Davdynamite

    omg! I can’t believe it just end like that! :'(

  • Cc

    can u upload the other ending please?

  • Noelyap78

    that is another ending in TengXun , actually that was some different at the end, this drama had 2 different ending, hope that anyone can upload another ending!TQ

  • EQ

    What the heck!!  How could they end like that?!?!?  If it was going to be like that, they should have just taken out the extra minutes in Ep. 30 and move everything over to make it end at Ep. 32 instead of making us wait a whole day for this!!!  Oh geez!!  They are so mean!!  They really wanted to hype us up with an extra ending part to this series so we tune in just to hit us with that.  If the other ending isn’t good, I can’t watch this series anymore.  All the torture and no one ends up good.  I feel sorry for the big sister, but even if the little sister ended off good, at least it wouldn’t be so bad.  I really hate how she had to drag that bottle out before she died though.  Oh, I’m so annoyed at this series!!! 

  • Fairytale

    Yeah totally agree this ending sucks!!!~ Xiao Yu/ ting Yu nr even liked Jing Wei the entire series~ so even if du Yu fang wants to leave how can he say that Jing wei will make her happier???
    Plus the whole way du Yu fang has maintained that he likes Xiao Yu so much so that he is willing to hurt ting Xuan~ who until Xiao Yu arrived was the most important part of his life~ then suddenly he wants to take photos of elephants more?? Geez~

    • MM

      Totally agree with you! I can understand that it didn’t need to have a perfect ending but this ending is not making any sense. The ending cannot even tell us who loves whom.


      I totally agree… like I understand they don’t want a “perfect” and “unrealistic” fairytale ending but letting Xiao Yu end up with Yu Feng would still stay true to the drama title! Since Ting Xuan can’t have happiness, at least one twin can experience bliss and happiness! 

  • Ihatethisending

    What a way to ruin a good show~ easily could otherwise have been my favorite show of the year…

  • I actually wouldn’t have minded Ting Yu with Jing Wei if the one he ultimately loved was Ting  Yu but nooo he has to do the “I love both twins” dilemma & it seems like he likes Ting Xuan more anyway! >:( ! 

    So it’s sort of like “since your sister passed away i’ll just use you as a substitute” -________-

    But I’ll just pretend that the one jing wei loves is ting yu haha

    • or maybe ting xuan shouldn’t have died but her death was inevitable because it contributed to the storyline/plot cause otherwise it wouldn’t match its title ‘Half a Fairytale’ 

      • EQ

        Hehe…are you trying to reason with yourself so that you can continue to like the series?  I will choose the second ending and fantasize my ending for Yu Feng and Ting Yu and reallllly ignore the first one if I want to continue to watch this series.

        • haha yes 🙁 trying to redeem the drama from the crapppy ending! 

          No doubt it was a good love square though! Just sad that both guys couldn’t tell who they loved! 🙁 

    • It also doesn’t make sense because I think the one Ting Xuan ultimately loves is Yu Feng since she went to dig back up the promise before she died which demonstrates how important Yu Feng is to her! 

      Then it becomes a complicated love square! :S 

      Jing Wei -> Ting Xuan Yu Feng <- Ting Yu

      So then it makes it seem like Yu Feng and Ting Xuan are the main couple here so it kinda makes sense Jing Wei ends up with Ting Yu? 


  • me gusta

  • <3


    • Ihatethisending

      What is it??

      • click on the youtube link for the last episode, the same uploader posted the 2nd ending! Watch the last 5 minutes of ‘ep 28HD version 2’ , ep29HD version 2 and ep30HD version 2

  • EQ

    Thanks for posting.  Both endings don’t really have a good definite ending, but I prefered the second one more.  At least it makes a little more sense to me.  This way, there is a chance that Yu Feng to be with Ting Yu because there was no indication that Yu Feng picked Ting Xuan and not want to be with Ting Yu at all.  The other ending was just weird for me.  I don’t know why Yu Feng called Jing Wei and say that he could make TIng Yu more happy when Ting Yu just thought of Jing Wei as a friend and nothing more.  It totally screws the whole Yu Feng and Ting Yu storyline over and with him saying things like he likes her even though he’s sorry for Ting Xuan or something (bad explaination, sorry) and then him pushing her to Jing Wei.  Half of me thinks that the only change in he two versions is how Jing Wei looks at the situation.  The first version has him not focused on trying to get Ting Yu while the other version has him totally distraught over Ting Xuan.  Again, I would rather he is distraught over Ting Xuan because it just means that he really did love her and not just both.  I really don’t like the first ending because it just makes both guys so not knowing which twin they like.  The second version actually seems to draw a line for me on who they actually like.  So, if I had to pick between both, which I really would rather a wedding with Ting Yu and Yu Feng, I would rather the second ending than the nonsensical first one for me.

    • Ihatethisending

      Yeah I prefer second ending too~ although they don’t show Du Yu Feng and Xiao Yu together it seems implied~ or at least left for us to assume so~ which, after watching the first ending, is good enough for me!!
      I actually think a wedding would have ruined the sober mourning mood of the last episode anyway~ I just would have like some more definite proff of a Du Yu Feng/ Xiao Yu union.


      I don’t like the second ending because it says “妹妹繼續姐姐的人生 續寫自己另外一半的童話故事” which says “Ting Yu continues to live her sister’s life and writes her own ‘other half of the fairytale'”

      I don’t like how Ting Yu has to live under the shadow of her sister! Ting Yu and Ting Xuan are completely different and I reckon she should live her own life, Ting Yu is actually already really unique and shines by herself without living in the shadow of her sister.

  • EQ

    Do you think that they purposely aired a nonsensical ending for it to hype us up for the second ending?  I think a lot of people would have been pretty satisfied if the second ending was the one that aired.  I know I would because it makes more sense to me.  I still would have rathered a Yu Feng and Ting Yu wedding…without him running off.

    • Ihatethisending

      Maybe they just couldn’t think of another way to end it but already promised two endings??~ which is vaguely ridiculous…

      • ROYLOVE

        But there was actually 5 possible endings and Hunan TV had a poll to see which 2 endings were the most popular… and they were the ones we’re given! 🙁 


        • dsfs

          what were the other three possible ending?

          • 1. Ting Xuan insists on watching the sunrise and disappears into thin air. Ting Yu continues to live her sister’s life and writes her own ‘other half’ of the fairytale.
            (I don’t like how Ting Yu has to continue her live as her sister….) 2. Everyone grieves the death of Ting Xuan. Yu Feng leaves with beautiful memories with Ting Xuan. Ting Yu and Jing Wei start their own fairytale. 
             (The first two endings were the ones we were given.
            3. Ting Yu sacrifices herself to save Ting Xuan. Jing Wei is unable to forgive himself for not being able to save Ting Yu and leaves broken-hearted. Yu Feng stays and takes care of Ting Xuan. 4. Ting Yu cannot control her love for Yu Feng and blames herself for hurting Ting Xuan. She decides to forget everything that happened and return to her village. (This doesn’t make sense since Ting Xuan already decided to give Ting Yu and Yu Feng her blessings?)5. Both sisters fell in love with the same person. When faced with family and love, which will prevail? To be continued….

    I am not sure if I should watch this. What’s the meaning of bad ending? Sad? Or badly thought out? I am in a dilemma cuz this looks promising and this has Lee Joon Hyuk! But if it’s not good, then.. :/

    • sillymarc

  • Cristina Li

    i wish it was a good ending. the ending should be when ting yuan finish her surgery in wherever she is and she was all well and healthy. then the next day ting xuan and jing wei and ting yu and du yu feng get married. then they should show us some parts of when they are living together and their happy lives after the marrige.
