Soooooo I finally started watching ‘Nirvana in Fire’ (LangYaBang/琅琊榜) last weekend. Only on episode 6/54 but it’s already becoming my favourite Chinese drama of all time by the looks of it (and that’s a huge statement💯). I’ve never watched a more cinematically and aesthetically exquisite piece of work. Practically all aspects are of extremely high calibre… Plus I’ve never seen so many hot guys (of all ages) in one single cast ever so I dedicate this post to them!😍😍😍😍😍

What is this? Ever seen The Amazing Race come on TV before? If not, then I’ll tell you what it is! Originally an American show, The Amazing Race is a game where teams of two race across the ENTIRE world doing and participating in tasks they never would have dreamed of. With nothing else, but a partner, a map, and some money, contestants are thrown into completely unfamiliar surroundings trying to find their way to the finish line before the other teams do. If one was to be the last team to reach the finish line, that will be the end of their race around the world.
Participants of Season 1:[season 1 consisted mostly of celebrities who were chosen to participate] - Wallace and Jackie Chung (siblings) - Li Xiaopeng and Li Anqi (married couple) - Bai Jugang and Guan Xiaotong (classmates) - Jin Dachuan and Liu Chang (best buddies) - Ekin Cheng and Jordan Chan (bros) - Calvin Chen and Zhou Weiting (friends) - Zhou Tieling and Yueliang (father and daughter) - Cherrie Ying and Liu Yun (best friends)
Participants of Season 2: - Han Geng and Wu Xin (friends) - Miriam Yeung and Ding Zi Gao (married couple) - G.E.M and Jing Chang (friends) - Xiao Yang and Wang Taili (partners in a band) - Kim Jong Kook and Lee Kwang Soo (friends) - Yuan Zihui and Yuan Heyu (siblings) - Eric and Bowie Tsang (father and daughter) - Feng Zhe and Zhu Zhu (boyfriend and girlfriend)
Have I Watched This Yet? Yes ! However, I only watched the first season because I’m biased and my super duper lovely husband Wallace Chung was in it. I spent three nights watching every episode of Season 1 and it was AMAZING! It made my heart race whenever something happened to my favorite team and although I was only sitting behind a phone screen biting nails nervously, I would consistently cheer on my most favorite team and a few of the other teams I liked. Would I recommend this to any one else? Uh… Yes ! :D
