After watching “Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace,” I couldn’t help but fall into deep contemplation. This drama portrays a palace world full of power struggles and deceit.
I saw the dark side of human nature. The concubines in the harem engage in fierce competition and hidden conflicts, resorting to any means necessary to win the emperor’s favor and status. In pursuit of their own interests, they are willing to harm others and even betray their own relatives. These conspiracies and calculations are shocking and make me deeply aware of the fragility and distortion of human nature. In this unique environment of the palace, people lose their inherent kindness and morality, consumed by the vortex of power.
At the same time, the lives of the concubines in the harem also made me feel heartbroken and helpless. They are trapped in this enclosed space, losing their freedom and dignity. Every move they make is strictly constrained and restricted, unable to determine their own fate. They are forced to endure loneliness and helplessness, deprived of the right to pursue happiness. This deeply makes me appreciate the preciousness of equality and freedom in modern society.
The love story in “Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace” also touched me deeply. The love between Ruyi and Qianlong is intricate and profound. They should have been deeply in love as husband and wife, but they are unable to be together due to the restrictions and conspiracies of the palace. Their love is deprived of the right to happiness, and they are forced to separate and endure pain. Watching their love encounter various obstacles and tests, I feel the vulnerability and helplessness of love. Love should be free and beautiful, but in the drama, it is bound by power and institutions, evoking a sense of injustice and desolation. This makes me cherish even more the freedom of love and marriage in real life, hoping that everyone can find their own happiness in love.
In addition to reflections on human nature and the palace system, the beautiful scenery and costumes in the drama also left a deep impression on me. The architecture and gardens of the palace are splendid and enchanting. The magnificent costumes worn by the concubines are resplendent and full of Eastern charm. These scenes and costumes showcase the magnificence and delicacy of ancient Chinese culture, making me marvel at the profoundness of ancient civilization.
“Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace” is a profound journey of the soul. I have felt the complexity and cruelty of human nature through it, and my reflection on feudalism and power has deepened. The characters’ destinies, harem life, and love story in the drama have resonated with me and provoked my thoughts. This drama has made me cherish equality and freedom in modern society even more, and it has also made me reflect on the fragility of human nature and the importance of ethics.
It has also made me contemplate some issues that exist in real life. In today’s society, we still face various challenges and dilemmas, and power struggles and conflicts of interest exist as well. Just like in the palace world depicted in “Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace,” the dark side of human nature also exists in real life. We should be vigilant and strive to change these problems, pursuing social fairness, justice, and human dignity and freedom.
I hope that each of us can draw inspiration from it and strive to create a better society.
