10 years ago in the town of An Yang, the origin of Yuan Wu Dao martial arts, world champion Qu Xiang Nan was accused of doping and his prestigious title was stripped. He became a disgrace to the town and tarnished their name in the arts of Yuan Wu Dao. The story of Tornado Girl is set in the present and revolves around his adopted daughter and student Qi Bai Cao in her journey of becoming a true Yuan Wu Dao martial artist, fighting her way to the top and reclaiming her Teacher's innocence. Along the way she encounters friends such as her stoic and selfless Yuan Wu Dao senior Ruo Bai, the warm and caring but mysteriously secluded medic Yu Chu Yuan, and the flirtatious, playful Fang Ting Hao with a hidden agenda. Together they learn, grow, compete, find love and fight for their dreams.

I personally think it is the best idol Chinese drama of 2015. All four perfect guys are in this drama. The one that gives but doesn't want anything in return; the rich guy; the nice, warm guy; and the cute, energetic guy. My favorite is definitely the male lead Ruo Bai. I have a huge crush on him and I really like Yang Yang. This drama makes you really motivated because the female lead along with her friends' support keeps improving in taekwondo. The theme song is also pretty motivating. Yang Yang who plays Ruo Bai plays his character extremely well. He doesn't smile but when he does, it makes me squeal. His voice is also deep and sounds really nice, not to mention that he is really handsome. The female lead is a bit repetitive because she adds senior behind all her senior taekwondo competitors. However, she does a pretty good job otherwise. The story isn't super creative but I really like how they focus on taekwondo. Without the taekwondo, it would be more of a typical drama. THERE IS A SEASON 2 SO BEWARE BECAUSE YOU WON'T SEE THE ENDING (UNLESS THERE IS MORE THAN 2 SEASONS) UNTIL SUMMER 2016!

*SPOILERS MAY BE AHEAD*

First of all, let me say that I do not REGRET WATCHING THIS DRAMA RAW (No english subtitles). While episode 1-4 on Viki got me excited and interested, I still wanted more episodes. So I resorted to the RAW episodes. Even though, I don't understand some parts, I still get some sense of what is happening in the episode. Now moving on!

Also note that
Odd Episodes are about 50 minutes - 1 hour long
Even Episodes are about 30 minutes - 40 minutes long

Story: 9/10
Qi Bai Cao loss her parents in a fire. She was picked up by Qu Xiang Nan during the fire and he became Qi Bai Cao's shifu (I think that's how you spell it), Qu Xiang Nan was a great Taekwondo in the final competition. He won the final rounds, but he was later tested for the use and help of drugs, and tested positive. Qu Xiang Nan's reputation sunked to the lowest and he stopped doing Taekwondo. Several years later, Fang Ting Hao, another great Taekwondo won the final rounds, but was falsely framed for using drug to help him win. Thankfully he didn't and tested negative.

I'm going to stop there, since I don't want to spoiled everything. Overall for the story I enjoyed and many parts teared me up (Especially in the later and near end episodes). If you understand the chinese language, then I advised you to watch this drama.

Character: 10/10
I understand that Qi Bai Cao's character portrayed by Hu Bing Qing won't appealed to several people, but understand one thing she is protective of her friends/families and, once she sets a goal, she goes for it. The three main guys' character were pretty well done too. Especially Chu Yuan's and Ruo Bai's character.

Acting: 9/10
I haven't really watching any of Hu Bing Qing's drama, since she seems to be a new actress. In my opinion, she can cry good (Maybe to me :P), and the the other actors/actresses stay true to their character.

Music: 9.5/10
I loved the music and the instrumentals. I want to find the instrumental musics so much, but I can't find them anywhere T^T. There was 2 main songs that I took a liking to.

Rewatch Value: 6/10
Eh, 32 episodes, it took me about 5-6 days to finish this drama, but hey it was worth it! I wouldn't watch it again, because there are so many other dramas to watch too. But if I ever go back to this one, I'll probably watch the cute and fighting parts.

Pros:
+Three guys to ship the main girl with
+Great music
+One long and short episode (Odd/Even)
+One of the dramas that stays true to its genre.
+Good characters portrayed by actors/actresses
+Main girl's hairstyle (Hey, it's pretty to me :P)

Cons:
-It won't attract many romance-watching drama people because it has less romance
-It won't appealed to many drama-watching people because it's a sport drama
-Season 2, because not alot people watch seasons, some rather prefer a full 10-20 episodes drama series.
-Special effect won't appealed to some people

(I die-hard ship Qi Bai Cao with Chu Yuan at first, they were the first OTP I shipped in the drama, but later on Ruo Bai's character got me. Ruo Bai's character is really nice and caring for Bai Cao)
