I was soooo excited for Huang Zitao and Janice Wu’s The Brightest Star in the Sky and even recapped the first episode. But the promising start quickly turned into a questionably-paced and poorly-written disappointment… I only made it through seven episodes and then skimmed through the last 20 episodes out of curiosity. I’ve decided to recap the final episode in case you also couldn’t finish the drama but want to know how it ends.
I’ve been looking forward to The Brightest Star in the Sky starring Huang Zi Tao and Wu Qian (Janice Wu) ever since the trailer dropped way back in 2017. I’m ecstatic that it finally started airing this month and that it is on YouTube with English subs thanks to PreciousZTaoBar 2.
I typically like to wait until a drama is almost done airing so that I can read reviews & marathon the drama all at once… but I’ve already waited for this one for so long so I thought I’d watch it and recap it. Here’s the trailer if you haven’t seen it.
Tao’s character seems similar to his actual idol persona and I think he and Wu Qian are a great match so fingers crossed that this will be a fun contemporary drama. If you want to avoid spoilers, I will write up a First Impressions post after I’ve watched ~5 episodes.
Here we go with the recap!
