If you’re in an arranged marriage, the next best thing to being in love is both being best bff’s and bamf’s.
Nirvana in Fire, the Kong Sheng-directed drama of “friendship” and revenge, released the first major set of stills of its cast. Featured are the lead Hu Ge, his best friends played by Wang Kai, Chen Long, Jin Dong, and Wu Lei, and the female supporting cast of Liu Tao, Zhou Qiqi, Zhang Lingxin, and Wang Ou.
Also, it has been confirmed that archrivals Yu Zheng and Tangren will have their two actors, Zhang Hanzhe and Hu Ge, playing the before-and-after of the lead character. Next thing we know, Liu Shishi and Yang Rong will be playing siblings. (In fact … Yu Zheng said yesterday that he asked Liu Shishi about playing XiaoLongNv)
“The most tragic thing in the world is I’m right behind you, but you don’t recognize me.”
Chen Long rounds up the trio of best friends as a general who connects the two best friends without them knowing it.
Jin Dong plays the flamboyant doctor who saves Hu Ge’s life. Why the serious face, Jin Dong?
Zhou Qiqi is the brilliant Madam who runs a spy network for Hu Ge. She has the misfortune of falling in love with a guy who obviously does not like women.
Zhang Lingxin plays the cool right-hand of the head of the Secret Police, and is a part of one of only two romances of the series, except both of them include the guy being dead/disappeared for most of the series.
