Momo Love is Taiwanese drama based on Japan's best selling manga "Momoka Typhoon" (桃花タイフーン). Cyndi Wang plays a character named Tao Hua / Momo (Peach in Japanese) who falls in love with Jiro Wang, playing Shi Lang. However, her five brothers all love her too much to let her go, so they try and prevent them from getting together. Meanwhile, Shi lang's childhood friend and Tao Hua / Momo's admirer are also preventing them from being together.
Tao Hua is the youngest, and only girl, in a family of six children. Her four eldest brothers are afraid that their place in Tao Hua's heart will be diminished if she is to fall in love, the four brothers set stringent guidelines as to who she can date. Shi Lang has recently moved into Tao Hua's area and attends a school nearby with high academic standards. Shi Lang and Tao Hua meet on a rainy day, during which Tao Hua falls in love with him for his big heart. Until Shi Lang comes into the picture, no guy has passed all of the guidelines set by the brothers. Despite Shi Lang's clean track record, the brothers are still unwilling to let go of their sister. They resort to getting their youngest brother, Yu Yi, to stay in high school an additional year in order to protect Tao Hua. They also "hire" Xue Zhi Qiang to distract Tao Hua from Shi Lang. Not only is Tao Hua hindered by her brothers, but she is also competeing for Shi Lang's affections with Shi Lang's childhood friend, Gong Hui Qi. The two main conflicts of the story consist of Tao Hua's struggle to prove that she can be independent as well as whether or not Shi Lang actually likes Tao Hua.
Tao Hua - The youngest sibling in a large family, Tao Hua has grown up under the care of her brothers because her parents are away (the reason is left unexplained). She has never been in a relationship and struggles to woo Shi Lang. Her personality is childish yet sweet and innocent, which comprises of her main draw factor. Tao Hua's athletic abilities are superior to those of Hui Qi. In fact, Tao Hua has learned judo from a young age, beating both Shi Lang and Zhi Qiang in combat despite her slight frame. While she has been wooed by many admirers, her brothers have "taken out" all the guys who have not met their requirements. In order to be in the same school as Shi Lang, Tao Hua takes the entrance exam to transfer. Eventually, Tao Hua, Yu Yi, Zhi Qiang, and Hui Qi are the four students selected to enter the school.
Shi Lang - Shi Lang has many achievements under his name in academic and athletic areas. He is the first to successfully meet the standards of Tao Hua's brothers, yet the brothers seem to find him inadequate for an unspecifiable reason. His handsome looks and kind heart make him very popular among the girls at school, yet he does not seem to have any girl friends outside of Tao Hua and Hui Qi. While he looks strong outwardly, Shi Lang struggles to decide his own feelings for both girls. His warm presonality is tempered by his shyness.
Hui Qi - Hui Qi is Tao Hua's main competitor for Shi Lang's affections. She has known Shi Lang from a young age and believes that she is his future bride. She often fakes sickness in order to grab Shi Lang's attention from Tao Hua. Hui Qi seems to be developing a relationship with Chen He, although her feelings are ambiguous at best. Hui Qi has had poor health since a young age and cannot compete with Tao Hua athletically. Hui Qi is very ambitious and "declares war" on Tao Hua openly.
Zhi Qiang - Zhi Qiang began liking Tao Hua after seeing her resilience and perseverance in pursueing Shi Lang. He uses various antics as to win Tao Hua's heart. Like Shi Lang, Zhi Qiang is also admired by many girls at school. While Shi Lang seems to lack the courage to tell Tao Hua of his affections, Zhi Qiang is very open. Zhi Qiang wins the support of Tao Hua's brothers by pretending that he really does not have any feelings for Tao Hua. He teams up with Hui Qi and the four brothers to separate Tao Hua and Shi Lang. Zhi Qiang is hot-blooded and romantic.
Yu Yi - Yu Yi is actually quite gifted, but as the youngest brother, he feels inferior to his brilliant brothers. He desires to have a relationship with a girl, currently hoping for the girl to be Hui Qi. Yu Yi's life has been plagued with difficulty due to his brothers. The brothers use Yu Yi as a tool to spy on and protect Tao Hua. While Yu Yi's problems stem from Tao Hua, Tao Hua is the only one who understands him and tries to help Yu Yi. In order to protect Tao Hua, Yu Yi had to be intentionally held back in school and now is delaying college to go to school with Tao Hua yet again.
Shi Lang & Tao Hua - On Tao Hua's part, she seems to truly be engrossed in Shi Lang and is eager to become his girlfriend. She accidentally confesses her love for him and has yet to recieve a solid answer. At this point, Shi Lang seems to be the primary problem because he does not seem to know how to face having a relationship. Nevertheless, Shi Lang appears to like Tao Hua more as their friendship progresses. He even appears to be jealous of any guys who approach Tao Hua, particularly Xue Zhi Qiang. Various characters try to get Shi Lang to give a definitive answer to Tao Hua's confession, but Shi Lang continues to struggle with his own feelings. In order to see Shi Lang more often, Tao Hua took the entrance exam to his school. Shi Lang took Tao Hua's first kiss at the match.
Shi Lang & Hui Qi - Shi Lang and Hui Qi have been best friends from their childhood days. In their childhood, Shi Lang had asked Hui Qi to marry him. While Shi Lang feels that the "proposal" was of no consequence, Hui Qi still believes it to be valid. Hui Qi has recently moved across the street from Tao Hua and also tested into Shi Lang's school. She has openly admitted that she like Shi Lang, going so far as to kiss him. Like in Tao Hua's case, Shi Lang does not know how to respond to her affections -- so her confession goes unanswered as well.
Tao Hua & Zhi Qiang - While Tao Hua is slightly annoyed by his presence, Zhi Qiang thinks that she is the girl of his dreams. Zhi Qiang pursues Tao Hua, even stealing her second kiss in front of Shi Lang's nose. Zhi Qiang has the support of Tao Hua's brothers because the brothers are unaware of his affections.
