The story tells the journey of Qi Bai Cao (Hu Bing Qing) who has a fondness for Taekwondo ever since she was little. After her parents died in a tragic car accident, Bai Cao is adopted and raised by Qu Xiang Nan, the world champion, whose skills and reputation have been defamed by his enemies. Honest, righteous, and determined to succeed, Bai Cao gradually transforms from a weed into a professional Taekwondo fighter, fighting her way to the top and reclaiming her teacher's innocence. Along the way she encounters friends such as her stoic and selfless senior Ruo Bai (Yang Yang), the warm and caring but mysteriously secluded medic Yu Chu Yuan (Bai Jing Ting), and the flirtatious, playful Fang Ting Hao (Chen Xiang) with a hidden agenda. Together they learn, grow, compete, find love and fight for their dreams.
