Yu Jun wants to study but tradition dictates she can't because she's a girl, so she dresses as a boy and goes to school. There she meets Liang and falls in love. Liang visits her and realises she is a boy. They fall in love and he asks her father for her hand in marriage. Her father refuses and Liang, realising he cannot have Yu Jun, becomes ill and dies. Yu Jun is determined to be with her only love - what will she do to be with him again?

After having shown the clip, repeat lines the characters have said and ask the pupils to link them to one of them - Yu, Liang or Yu's father.
Invite the children to create an 'OK!'-style magazine article about the story, treating the characters as modern celebrities. Ask them to come up with punchy headlines and sublines in German. They can draw pictures or cut out images from magazines to illustrate the story. Divide the children into three groups. One group could concentrate on the beginning of the story and how the characters met; the second group on the love confession and the third on the tragic ending of the story.
