The Starry Night The Starry Sea has yet to air but it looks like the prequel has been planned from the very beginning given that the cast began filming for the second one before the first one even aired. Considering how Ice Fantasy Destiny literally popped out of nowhere, sequels seems to be Feng Shao Feng’s new thing.
The Starry Night The Starry Sea 2 那片星空那片海第二季 is a 32-episode Chinese TV series that keeps to the existing premise of a human falling in love a merman but it transports the modern-day story to the Tang Dynasty. In a small village by the sea, Lu Li disguises herself as a man in order to work at a boat factory, hoping to show her skills and fulfill her dream of sailing at sea. Wu Ju Lan is the king of the merpeople and he has also come to the same place because of a secret mission.
As an avid fan of period dramas, it’s certainly a welcome change and there are also bigger names in the cast as it stars Feng Shao Feng (Ice Fantasy), Bea Hayden Kuo (Wong Fei Hung), Bosco Wong and Sunny Wang Yang Ming (Secret of the Three Kingdoms).
Release Date: Oct. 2, 2017 Hunan TV (two episodes every 10 pm Monday to Wednesday)

Is this one of those shows where they attempt something bold and never done before in C-dramas (is. Ice Fantasy)?
no i don't think it's gonna be anywhere nearly as high profile as Ice Fantasy.. to be honest i think it's just your average c-drama but let's wait and see until they release more info:)
I feel like I'll enjoy this one better than the first if I watch it. A big if now. :/ I just dropped the first after 16 episodes and skipped to the end. I don't feel like I missed much at all. I couldn't take the dingbat female lead and some of those side characters. They all got under my skin.
Others are saying this sequel is a "prequel" to the modern day story. I'd rather it just be something different. But the Mer-Man did live a 1000 years, I can imagine everything he encountered.
The side characters have taken some important parts in the story. I watched everything and I was entertained. It covers the sad ending, I cried a lot when Wu Julan died.��
I dropped the first one after a few episodes only but I do love costume dramas so the second one definitely sounds more appealing 🙂
The final episode of season 1 is terribly heartbreaking! I couldn't believe that that was going to happen to our extremely handsome lead, Wu Ju Lan. I'm still crying inside. The writer of this novel really knows how to break hearts! With this new season coming, I really hope that whatever the story will help us getover that season 1 ending!
I hope it's not as bad as season 2 ice fantasy… :/
Do you need to have watched the first season to watch this or can they be watched seperately?
They're not connected, so you can watch them separately. And the second season is already out with 30 episodes!
