The Magnificently-cloaked General Saves His Country

During the reign of Emperor Taizong in the Tang Dynasty, nomadic warriors of Liao are a constant threat to the Chinese border. At the martial arts contest to appoint a military leader, Qin Huaiyu defeats all his opponents, including the valiant Luo Tong to win the honour, as well as the heart of Princess Yingping.

When Chuan Gai Su Juan, the leader of the Liao tribe invades China, the general Qin Shubao dispatches Wei Chigong to obtain the military stamp form Huaiyu. The gesture offends Qin Huaiyu, and he gives Wei a sound thrashing. When Qin Shubao fins out he is infuriated, and orders Cheng Yaojin to take Qin Huaiyu be tried before the Emperor. Knowing that his daughter is in love with him, the Emperor only gives him a light ticking off, and then arranges for a royal wedding for the pair.

As the war intensifies, the Emperor is surrounded by Liao troops at the town of Yuehu. Cheng Yaojin returns to the capital to get reinforcements. Since General Qin Shubao has just passed away, Luo Tong is made commander-in-chief, while Qin Huaiyu assigned to the frontlines. Qin Huaiyu breaks through the enemy line by himself, but gets no support from Wei Chigong, who still harbours a grudge against him. Just as he is about to be overwhelmed by the enemy, Luo Tong’s army comes to his rescue, and the invaders are successfully repelled.

When the Emperor learns of Wei Chigong’s behavior, he is outraged and orders him to apologies to Qin Huaiwang. The two men make up and devote themselves to their country.

Guan Dapeng has two sons, Wenhu and Wenju. Wenhu, who is wilful and strong-minded, is in love with his cousin Xiaoju and they pledge to marry each other. One day, they learn about the invasion by the Xiongnu army. Wenhu volunteers to fight against the enemy on his own. Before leaving home, he asks his parents to look after Xiaoju until he wins the battle and comes back to marry her. Dapeng and Wenju lead the backup force. At the battlefield, they are shocked to see dead bodies all around and think that Wenhu has sacrificed himself for the country. Xiaoju is then arranged to marry Wenju. One year later, Wenhu manages to escape and arrives home. Caught in a mixed feeling of jealousy and hatred over the unexpected news that Xiaoju has become his sister-in-law, Wenhu tries to kill Wenju and Xiaoju with his sword and even his parents cannot stop him. Wenhu challenges Wenju to a duel on Mount Pipa. The winner will have Xiaoju whereas the loser will have to commit suicide. At this juncture, the Xiongnu army attacks the border again. The brothers dispel hostility and join hands to resist foreign invasion.
