During the 4th century, war broke out between the feudal Northern Wei dynasty and Southern Liang dynasties, leading Liang's General Lin Xie to take his only child, the 19 year old Lin Shu, to battle. Unexpectedly, Lin Xie was framed by a political rival, causing the unjust deaths of seventy thousand Chiyan army soldiers, just after they drove off the hostile Wei forces. After barely escaping with his life, Lin Shu establishes the Jiangzuo Alliance with the help of Langya Hall and makes a name for himself as Mei Changsu, chief of the pugilistic world. Under the alias of Su Zhe, he returns to the capital of Liang 12 years on to overturn the injustices imposed on the Chiyan Army and secretly assist his friend the unfavored Prince Xiao Jingyan in his battle for the throne.

Must watched series. It's Chinese Game of Thrones.
5 September 2018 | by smurfin-mailSee all my reviews

This series is like Game of Thrones, there are so many intrigues and there are many interesting characters. The actings are really good and believable, and the production quality is top notch. It's hard to find a series that I enjoy like this one.

Every character in this series doesn't seem random, they have their backgrounds and their position is clear. Interaction between characters is also interesting, their emotions are backed up by solid acting and the dialogues are very well written.

The story is also very good, the plot gets thicken several times, you'll really get absorbed into it.

I'd give this series a thousand stars if allowed, but since max is 10 then every star represents one hundred stars xD.


After watching Lang Ya Bang / Nirvana in Fire 1, now I continue to watch 'season 2' , it's not actually season 2 like in most Western series and imo it should have its own page because it's completely different story and different timeline even though it borrows a few characters from previous installment.

It is common in Chinese drama/novel/wuxia series that the next 'season' or sequel to pick the descendants of the previous series' main heroes / normal characters as the new main heroes in the sequel. That creates something like a link to the past that provides an interesting and unique fresh start because we already knew the background of the characters and can relate to him/her since we know their ancestors LOL, it's really satisfying per se. So If anyone continues to watch this sequel, be sure to check the characters' background, and find out who relates to who.

I haven't finished watching but I already want to review it. I want to say that NIF/LYB is a series that you'd want it to never end. I already wish there will be NIF 3. Everything is good, especially the story. I read some mild spoilers and like the previous series, the plot will thicken several times.

There are a few actors/actresses from NIF 1 that fill the cast but play different role here, it's kinda weird seeing the same faces playing different role but I'm not too bothered with that, even Hu Ge the main lead from NIF 1 was offered to play again here, but he was taking a break.
