The Blue Whisper Part 1 tells of an angsty romance between spirit controller Ji Yunhe (Dilraba) and pretty merman Changyi (Ren Jialun) who gives his tail for legs. Part 1 ends with the leads misunderstanding each other, though from the trailer it seems like they’ll eventually work together again to defeat the tyrannical Princess Shunde (Guo Xiaoting). I didn’t like the previous merman-related drama (Mirror: Twin Cities), so hopefully this one is better.
The 22 episode drama premieres on Youku tonight at 6pm (CN time). Part 2 will run for 21 episodes and should follow shortly. Drama watching calendars included below the cut.

Part 1 of The Blue Whisper is titledOur First Encounter 驭鲛记之与君初相识 and stars Dilraba as Ji Yunhe, the most powerful demon controller in the valley. She is ordered by Princess Shunde to tame the beautiful merman Changyi (Ren Jialun) and have him do three things: speak the human language, transform the tail into a pair legs and stay absolutely loyal to the princess. Unfortunately, their difference in social status and race leads to several misunderstandings, and their romance takes a melodramatic turn.
