The Peacock is in four parts titled Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter respectively to symbolize life's journey reflecting a story about growth, human nature and love. The characters in the drama embody the different levels of human nature, brightness & awareness, love & devotion, obsession & being lost, and fear & vanity.
