The 2015 Chinese historical drama Nirvana in Fire is based on the book Lang Ya Bang by Hai Yan. Hu Ge, Liu Tao, and Wang Kai play Mei Changsu, Princess Nihuang, and Prince Jing, respectively. Kong Sheng and Li Xue directed it. In the series, Lin Shu enters Liang’s capital city under the guise of Mei Changsu to seek retribution for a plot that had branded his family as traitors 12 years earlier. The drama was both a commercial and critical hit, earning over 100 million streaming views by the second day and over 3.3 billion views on iQiyi by the end of the series. With 3.55 billion postings on Sina Weibo praising its characters and plot, Nirvana in Fire was hailed as a social media phenomenon. According to VLinkage, it has received 13 billion views overall as of December 2016, and easily counts as one of the best Chinese dramas out there.
