A story revolving around a sunny youth and a marine biology student as they work together to protect the ocean.
An Fei is a scholar who harbors a crush on a young and accomplished scientist named Mo Liang. She dreams of becoming a top researcher in the country in order to protect the ocean. One day, she encounters Ye Hai, a young man who seems to bring her bad luck. Ye Hai not only opposed the project that An Fei has been working on but he also makes up stories about her by claiming that she's his wife. Finding Ye Hai arrogant and weird, An Fei tries to avoid him at all costs until she realizes that he may have been right along. As she gets to know him, memories of a past relationship begin to surface just like the legendary story of Poseidon and Amphitrite.

Cast & Credits
Editing: It was alright until the mid 20s eps onwards
Acting: Not a problem, quite good actually (First time seeing Eleanor Lee and Leon Zhang act -- also Johnny Zhang is a qt)
Characters: Had so much potential
Angst: Not much
It started off great: Passable writing, pacing, editing, interesting quirky characters, nice male lead, etc.
But the show lost its way in the middle. From eps 20ish onwards, I found myself asking: So what is the main anchor of the show? Poseidon and Amphitrite? The Poseidon project? Anfei and Ye Hai? At the start it seemed like they were gonna make this show about Poseidon, the necklace Ye Hai has, Amphitrite as well as An Fei. The Poseidon project was supposed to be the other thing that goes on - Not the main anchor but a strong one nonetheless.
As the show went on, Poseidon just....disappeared. What happened to gaining her forgiveness? We never got to see and understand Poseidon's character thoroughly. I was disappointed, really. There wasn't much development on the Poseidon arc or Amphitrite's arc and we were just left hanging as they tried to jump onto the next ship: The Poseidon Project - there were some developments but nothing much actually seemed to be happening.
They tried to pack a lot of things into the show in 34 episodes so in the end there really wasn't much development in anything at all -- maybe except Ye Hai and An Fei's relationship which started to stagnate as well.
The last few eps had very serious choppy editing - which may make you confused as to what's happening as well since there are practically no explanations. It's probably because they were told to cut down on the episodes or something.
All in all, the main lead couple's chemistry is cute and if you want to watch it for their chemistry (practically why I held on till the end) then you can watch it. The only gripe I have about their relationship is how Ye Hai never wants to tell her anything sigh.
(Also lowkey wanted to see the relationship development of Ye Tian and Hua Yin - like show me a little more on Ye Tian's crush on Hua Yin why don't you?)
That's all lads. Till next time.
The chemistry between the two leads is off the charts and is definitely the main reason on why this drama quickly became one of my favourite cdramas this year. Their interactions and conversations are realistically convincing and amusing that I just want to squeal every time I see them on screen together. Their continuous bickering is just too funny to watch. And even though they did not become a couple till later in the drama, I still enjoyed watching their banters and flirty acts lol. No offence but Leon and Eleanor have done their roles so well that I don't think anyone could have pulled it off the same way.
The story is simple and does not have a lot of angst. I found the ocean research stuff interesting, as well as the Poseidon and Amphitrite backstory. Although I may get how not a lot of people will be interested with this and might find it boring (y'all can get away with skipping those parts tho lol). It did drag a bit in the middle, but I would say still manageable because of the two leads. The chemistry is truly the driving force of this drama I must say.
I loveeee the character of Ye Hai so much - how he's goofy most of the time but could also be serious and responsible when it needs to be. Although An Fei did not like him at first, he tried really hard and continued to show how much he likes her despite her indifference towards him. Ugh Ye Hai is just a boyfriend material alright?? I also like how they justified the actions of the characters - how they aren't really evil without a reason and how most of them changed towards the good in the end. I truly appreciate the writers for that.
The ending is a bit lacking but atleast it's a happy ending. As an avid fan of cdramas, I'm already thankful that the two leads ended up together in the end cos I honestly don't know what to do if they didn't T___T
Overall, I enjoyed this drama so much and would totally recommend it.
