Royal Nirvana | Royal Intrigue Chinese Drama Review
This drama is very melancholic from the start. It is very gloomy with cloudy skies and heavy snow. Coupled with the deplorable circumstances surrounding the main character, the whole story will just feel tragic.
The Crown Prince is a lonely young man who fights for some people close to him not to become a victim and leave him alone in the palace.
The more he wanted to prevent some people from leaving, the more his weaknesses were exposed. He becomes emotionally vulnerable and has to make concessions when he asks his father for help.
He feels unloved by his own father who considers him weak and tends to practice favoritism when he really misses his acknowledgment. So, this was a very sad Crown Prince who cried a lot and that set the tone for Royal Nirvana.
If you like drama with emotion, sadness, and bitterness, then you might like Royal Intrigue.
In this drama the female lead tends to be intimidated at first, but you’ll also get enough emotion to make it less depressing to watch.
In addition, this drama also presents a very complicated palace intrigue plot. There are examples of pitfalls in traps and deception which are quite detailed.
