It took me a little bit to finish this epic drama (5 days to be exact), but I couldn't wait to write this review after I did finish it!

Story/plot: -10- This drama had a cute, fun, and catch-worthy storyline! I absolutely loved how it was centered around swimming, mixed with life issues and dramas. I was intrigued from the very beginning to the very end, and although there were some parts read more that were dragged out, I couldn't really blame them; after all, they had to fill up 36-37 episodes... Even so, every episode hooked me in, and made me stay up late every night, telling myself "just one more episode" (even though we all know, that is never true :P). The ending is definitely NOT a downer! This ending was settled and it flowed smoothly and nicely.

Acting/cast: -10- LEMME TELL YOU! THIS CAST=PERFECTION! Xiong Dylan (Tang Yi Bai)+Tan Song Yun (Yun Duo)=so cute!!! They are the ULTIMATE couple and they were made to be the main leads. I squealed at their height difference every time, and their interactions on and off camera are also goals! Other than the main leads, I also loved how there were other cute couples around them like, for example, Huang Sheng Chi (Qu Rui Feng) and Wang Zi Xuan (Xiang Yang Yang). Not to mention, there were a lot of good lookin' guys in this drama! You need the right cast to carry out a good storyline and THIS CAST MADE EVERYTHING FANTASTIC!

Music: -10- This is my first drama where I truly payed attention and appreciated the song selection, and this is because the song selection for this drama is so memorable! Every song truly matched their placement during the moments throughout the drama. If anyone wants to take a sneak peak at a song example, here is my favorite, "Crossing the Pacific", which could be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NY65i3DP9WA

Rewatch value: -8- Although I gave many complements about this drama, my rewatch value would have to be an 8. This is because since there were a lot of surprising twists and turns, rewatching the whole drama from beginning to end wouldn't allow the full attention this drama truly deserves. I will, however, re-watch all the cute moments the characters had with one another and beware! there are A LOT of cute moments where I guarantee you will squeal when watching!

Overall: -9.5- Overall, this drama was a cute and refreshing one to watch for me. My only downer is probably the rewatch value, but I still advice this to everyone because of all the positive things I stated above, from the storyline to the music, this drama made everything fit well altogether.

Thank you to everyone who read this relatively long review, but I hope whoever is reading this to give "My Mr. Mermaid" a try, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did! :)

I am totally in love with this drama!

The main characters interact great with each other and show good acting skills. They fight for there dreams from the beginning 'till the end and try to help each other and their friends as much as possible.
The other characters also have a great chemistry with everyone else. There are many different kind of persons so i think every viewer can find some character read more to compare themselves to. Even the more 'unlikeable' characters will grow to your heart for sure ;)

The storyline is sweet and shows how to chase after dreams and find friends and lovers. They also talk about relationships with familys eventhough they have a busy schedule training and helping their friends out. From narcisstic to shy characters, this drama has them all!
If i would have to choose some keywords for this show it would be: friendship, dream, past, trust and fun.

It also seems that they really worked hard to portrait the life of actual swimmers trying to become professional - they did a great job!

The music is one of the points i reaally loved in this drama too. Nice music and the main characters are singing some of the songs!^^

Totally recommend this drama, you won't waste your time for those 36 episodes:)

Both sports drama with swimming athletes. Both main leads became friends before lovers. They had great chemistry. Light bubbly easy to watch dramas that give you the same feel-good vibes.

    After my Moon River withdrawals that lasted 2 years now I've finally found the drama to replace those feels with. This is seriously a gem, it's cute, well acted, and very simple day to day stuff which you need once in awhile. I usually gravitate to dramas with more serious plot lines but I need a dose of guilty pleasure like this too. Tang Yibai is so sweet and caring, he's not at all how a male lead is 99.9% of the time portrayed. And I appreciate that!

      There's one airing right now called Attention, Love! Sadly, the last episode doesn't air until December so you'll have to wait for a while in order for the drama to finish :( Hope you will look into the drama though!

    Across the pacific, heading for the oceeaaan~
    a week has passed since i finished this drama and I still catch myself humming the OST
    Anyway, really nice drama. Great chemistry between the leads and side characters. And can I just mention how nice and innocent Yi Bai is? Seldom you see male leads with such personality in dramas.

    I was hesitant to watch this for like a month, thank God I can binge watch it now, I love the main lead character/acting/actor, I like the girl not in love with her because the reporter character IMO doesnt suit her....but above all I love the bromance between Yi Bai & QQ and the other guys from the team as well, I also like the quarrels the hate/love relationship between Rui Feng & Yang Yang, the swimming concept also is very refreshing as well.The music was epic too. Really refresh drama and happy ending! I just finished To the End of the Summer, it was too depressing for my taste... I liked this one better because I didn't really hate any character in here. Highly recommend it.

      Too many good C-dramas released, so little time!

    • Reply

      yesss, there so many already pre-produced waiting to be released it is insane....and they are so lengthy not that Im complaining when they are really good....but china as in everything produces too much and sometimes with less quality than Korea or Japan.
