    This drama set such a high bar. The acting, writing, directing, costume, and sound are all outstanding. I don't like how many Chinese dramas have so many episodes with many unnecessary filler plots that just drag the story, but Nirvana in Fire is not like that. Every scene in every episode serves a purpose, and the length of the series is justifiable given the intricate plot. Nirvana in Fire also doesn't show the cringe-worthy, ultra-bad CGI effects that many Chinese dramas have. It has some CGI, but used in moderation and the quality is decent enough. I love the bromance between Hu Ge and Wang Kai.

    This drama started out really good but went downhill after the first half.

    Bawled my eyes out while watching the ending because it is the perfect ending for all the characters even though it is last minute and is not developed. I'm still thankful that at least it is a clear enough ending unlike those cliffhanger endings that let the viewers use their imagination to decide the ending. I love how this drama stays true to its core, which is female empowerment, until the very end, while still allowing the main characters to grow and develop for better or worse. Yes, the CGIs are cringe-worthy bad, but I still like this drama overall. I thought it would be hard to ship Liu Shi Shi's character with any of the male leads since she is married, but I was proven wrong. Love Liu Shi Shi's acting and chemistry with both male leads. There are many sweet moments with the male leads that I definitely will re-watch in the future. The ending soundtrack is also stuck in my head. So glad I'm out of the agony of wanting to punch fictional characters, though (i.e, Qiyu's mother, Wang Meilin, and Duke Wang).
