Hong Lou Meng

Hong Lou Meng, translated as a Dream of Red Mansions, sometimes translated as the Dream of the Red Chamber, the great classical Chinese novel written in the mid-eighteenth century during the reign of Emperor Chien-lung of the Ching Dynasty, has been widely popular throughout the last two hundred years and more. It is said be a story engraved on a stone. Legend has it that one day two immortals passed by a huge wild Mountain, bringing to the world a stone, which is said to “the one of those left by Nu Wa, a girl who used to patch up the sky with stones. The two immortals have experienced all the vicissitudes of life.

A DREAM OF RED MANSIONS is known to every household in China. It tells of the social life of many periods in the Qing Dynasty and portrays successfully a group of innocent and lovely girls suffering under the debris of a male-centered feudal society.

The TV series by CCTV explains how the Chinese feudal society die out through the declines and falls of a typical Chinese feudal family through a couple of young lovers and many girls' tragic life.

The series begins with the mother-less child, Lin Daiyu - whose beauty and intelligence surpasses all - moving into her maternal grandmother's family in the capital. There, the child meets numerous relatives, one of whom is Jia Baoyu, her mother's nephew, and the heir of the family. Baoyu was borne with a jade tablet and so, is treated like a fragile egg, and is spoiled by his grandmother. He often spends his time with his female cousins and maids instead of being in his studies. One of the cousins he hangs around with is Xue Baochai.

As the story goes on, Baoyu and Daiyu eventually fall in love with each other, but Daiyu is not very well-liked by the family, and instead, the family members favor Baochai.
