The Starry Night The Starry Sea with William Feng, Haden Kuo

Finally got the chance to check out the novel and fell asleep promptly after 2 chapters. Lol. It was slow and the heroine’s inner thoughts were quit ordinary. It’s a good thing they got Haden Kuo to play the female lead because she is beautiful and likable to me (dramaland needs new faces!) William Feng Shao Feng takes on the role of our hero – a merman! So far, I haven’t seen his tail yet. hehe. He better be careful because the supporting male leads are no joke!

Synopsis Translated by Me [DO NOT TAKE OUT WITHOUT PERMISSION]: The Starry Night The Starry Sea (那片星空,那片海) is the drama adaptation of Tong Hua’s novel published in 2015, so it’s pretty new out on the market, which surprised me when it was picked up immediately for a drama. Our female lead is a 26-year old woman who lives quite a lonely life. With her parents divorced, her stepmother and step bro hate her, she becomes a sensitive and mature lady, independent and practical in her thinking. Moving away from the busy city life, she moves to small cottage in the island. She has no time for daydream of a romantic love and often questions herself why she falls for the hero with a mysterious background. She is uncertain about his status, his money, and his love for her. Our hero is a merman, a mystical creature only spoke of in legends. While he’s the boss of the sea, he has lived for a very long time. He has stepped foot on land before, formed friendships, and eventually witnessed their aging bodies become white ashes. What’s left of them is only memories, photos, paintings – all are good stories to tell on a quiet night. He stands tall through time. Seeing too much, understanding too much, and feeling too much, he’s now a jaded merman. They meet for the first time when he’s injured and she finds him unconscious at her doorstep. Living under the same roof, she intends to have him do housework (LOL) but he displays no sense of physical labor. HEHE. Using his special powers and astute intelligence, he helps her overcome many obstacles and feelings are naturally developed. Of course, trouble comes knocking at their door when her prized possession – a magical pearl, causes her to be in the crossfire of forces she knows nothing about. To save her, our hero has to sacrifice his life. Dun, Dun, Dun. [Mixture between the novel and the drama scripts.]

    Is it just me or did feng shao feng go on a weight loss bc he just looks so freaking skinny now?

      I think at his age,losing weight is the only option to look ‘Young.’ He is tiny XD

    Oh WOWWWWWW!!!!

    The story doesn’t interest me at all, but it has actors I like! Sui Yong Liang! Ian! Guo Xiao Tiang! Urrrggghhhh… dilemma, dilemma 😀

    Yes, Kap, Sui Yong Liang looks great with facial hair. IMHO he has some acting chops too. Excited to see Ian again, and I hope this time his role allows him to show his talent beyond the perfect comedic timing 🙂

      I hope so too but he’s just too good with comedic timing and facial expressions. XD I’ve missed Lord Gu!

    I’m liking this cast! Not familiar with Sui Yong Liang (any recs of his works guys?), but he looks smokin hot with the facial hair. Ian is awesome and definitely deserves more and better roles. Like he’s spot on with the comedy and his roles are generally likable, but he’s got so much more potential. That eyebrow-cock with the smirk is funny in his roles and work in context with his punch lines, but on their own they’re pretty sexy too. So underappreciated…

    Like lenje, not too into the story, but that cast! I like ALL of them. Esp Guo Xiao Tiang. I don’t see her enough but I think she’s awesome – has the skills and the looks yet not enough roles.

    FSF…haven’t watched his works lately so …no comment on his skills, but I’ve always thought he’s hot. 😀 Have to say tho, why’s he going for all the supernatural non-human roles lately?

      The moment I drop names of his dramas, you will recognize him Juli. The Legend of Qin! Wu Xin the Monster Killer! Lol.

      Non-human roles = younger and prettier/colorful hair? =D

        Ooooo the ridiculous priest-dude! Lol kudos to his acting skills cuz that reference just totally shattered my he’s-hot impression. Lol he’s still hot, but due to his acting skills, my only impression of his is his ridiculousness. I didn’t end up sticking with Legend of Qin long enough for his Gao Jian Li to make much of an impression. Except that he looked cool.

          I only remember him because of his facial hair. LOL.

    Never really get FSF hype…but thats just me. Anyway, Tong Hua’s period or fantasy books are quite awesome but I have yet to like any of her contemporary ones. I am so not gonna read this book ..and well..will just wait and see if this drama adaptation is any good.
