The Starry Night The Starry Sea Second: Episodes 3 & 4 Recap

This 7 episodes a week release is insane! I love it as a watcher but hate is as a recapper lol Well, the romance definitely starts to pick up this episode as Julan’s cool and icy demeanor starts to crack just a little.

The Starry Night The Starry Sea Second: Episodes 1 & 2 Recap

It’s here! I only found out about this drama a week ago but let me tell you, it was a very long week lol I’m fairly new to Chinese Dramas. I was browsing an Asian drama website looking for a new Korean drama to watch when I happened upon Ice Fantasy. I devoured it. Thus started my budding crush on Feng Shao Feng. Of course it was only natural that I waited in anticipation for his next drama The Starry Night The Starry Sea, and now here I am waiting and watching The Starry Night The Starry Sea 2. The fall into Chinese Drama junky is a slow and steady one.

I have to say, one of the things that first drew me to The Starry Night The Starry Sea (besides Feng Shao Feng) was that the story was not about a mermaid but a merman. I would say that 99% of stories about merpeople are focused on a female.

Zhao Li Ying and Feng Shao Feng caught on second date?

You followed these actors for hours on end and yet you couldn’t capture a clear photos? I actually don’t know anymore. Are they a promotional tactic for The Story of Ming Lan? Or are C-netizens just too excited to marry off our girl? Lol. But yes, just like the dinner date last time (work-related, they included old photos too), our girl (or maybe not our girl) is supposedly caught on another date with Feng Shao Feng. The story released was that after Feng Shao Feng finished dinner with friends, he picked up Li Ying, and both spent time at his place until the next morning.
