Yu Die’s mother drowned while trying to save Yu Die and, in one very bad day, Yu Die lost her mother, her memory and her ability to swim. Years later, she crosses paths with Gao read moreHai Fei, the CEO of a multibillion corporation. Intrigued by Yu Die’s lost memories, Hai Fei hides his true identity from her and gets mistaken for a professional part-time worker who is a jack-of-all-trades. Yu Die asks Hai Fei for his help with the “Sea Horse” Men’s Swim Team, which has never been able to win a meet and is the laughing stock of the sport of swimming. With Hai Fei searching for a “mermaid” crush from his past, will he agree to help Yu Die turn the losing swim team around?

I truly loved this drama. I think it is the perfect example of how to create a drama without resorting to misunderstandings, stupid choices, and second leads that truly F things up all the time.

The main characters were very mature in their romance and relationship. They respected eachother and had deep trust and faith in eachother. There were no tantrums or egotistical stubbornness. While both had a secondary "love interest" the read more main characters drew clear boundaries towards them. I loved that as I find it incredibly frustrating when the main characters are totally oblivious and lead their friend on or hurt their romantic partner by not prioritizing their feelings. Especially the male lead was very impressive and level headed. He wasn't a brute or overly jelaous though he did like teasing the female lead at times ^^ The female lead was a a bit more cliche nice girl but had a lot of charm and had her own charm.

The humour was ok - not over the top but not laugh out loud either. All in all it was a very sweet, tender and mature (not in the R rated sense ;) drama that I would definitely recommend. Especially if you just want something to watch that makes you feel good without much angst or stupidity. The only weakness was that it didn't really have any magnetic feature. I mean, the thing that makes your heart pound and makes you unable to stop watching. However I really don't mind as this was a truly refreshing drama :D

    This drama was painful for me to get through. First few episodes were promising, but the rest were a drag.

    A direção é péssima e os acontecimentos não convencem, e a personagem principal é zzzzZZ. Mas se quiser algo para relaxar sem necessariamente fazer sentido, até vale. E bom, Kingone é Kingone.

    I'll wait to read the spoilers on this one to see if it's something I'll be interested in for the long run ;)

      Because of the Chinese title
      Love Cuisine's Chinese title - 料理高校生
      Swimming Battle's Chinese title - 飛魚高校生
      Notice the similarities? "高校生" (means high school)

      The theme is similar in a sense they're romance mixed in with high school story with the leads as teacher/mentor to the high schoolers. Love Cuisine is a mixed of high school students+cooking, while Swimming Battle is a mix of high school students + swimming. SETTV probably wants to launch a series of high school dramas and will probably release more high school themed series in the future to promote rookie actress/actors playing as high-schoolers.
