I think that there’s no drama I’m looking forward to more than Nirvana in Fire – Hua Xu Yin, this is how you tastefully add fur to your costumes (it’s Hu Ge who wears the fur, not the other way around!) There’s such a quiet elegance to all of the costumes and the gorgeous filming. It helps, too, that the cast (Hu Ge, Wang Kai, Liu Tao) are amazing, and Hu Ge fits perfectly into his role as a calculating strategist with a major vendetta (and uh, gorgeous face).
Hu Ge is set to sing the (as of now) unreleased theme song, while Wang Kai (Blood, Eternally Crimson 赤血长殷）and Liu Tao （Beauty Bygone 红颜旧) have both contributed an insert song. They’re absolutely gorgeous. The drama will be released on September 18th.
