Two scientists are trying to find evidence to prove that mer-people are real. The three male leads, who are all mermen, are trying to figure out whom the two scientists are and why they want to prove that mer-people are real, so they investigate.
The main couple is Talay and Fahfon. There was a party on a yacht and Fahfon fell into the water and Talay jumped in to save her. While underwater he kissed her trying to breathe air into her mouth, but either way their lips touched causing a bright light kind of reaction. If a merman kisses someone on the lips, the person they kissed will turn into a mermaid. So Fahfon turns into a mermaid and Talay is in charge of her by helping her understand more about mer-people and making sure she doesn't expose their secret. Fahfon also finds out that since she was turned into a mermaid she only has a few months left until she turns into sea foam.
The second couple is Payu and Pim/Khaofang. Payu and Pim were lovers, he accidentally kissed her causing her to turn into a mermaid. After some time Pim turned into seafoam, like she died/dissipated. On the day of the yacht party, Payu spotted someone who looked exactly like Pim. That person turned out to be Khaofang. Payu wanted to get closer to her and see if she's really Pim or not. Payu finds out that Khaofang is suffering from amnesia and tries to help her regain her lost memories, in hopes that she is really Pim.
The third couple is Plangton and Ploysai. Out of the three male leads Plangton is the youngest. He owns a café and he's popular among the girls. Ploysai happens to be one of those girls who has her eyes on Plangton. She's older than him and makes it pretty obvious she likes him. Plangton on the other hand tries his best to not fall for her after Payu warned him. But nothing will stop Ploysai from making him fall for her.

Cast & Credits
My weakness of mermaid dramas made me start this drama.
The story is good in my opinion but I did stop watching when I hit the half way point because some of the characters were just too annoying for me to handle especially as I was binge watching so a break was definitely in order. Now that I've completed the drama, I'm glad I didn't completely write it off.
I enjoyed the main couple Talay/Fahfon but I have to admit that their romance was slightly disappointing in my opinion. It felt very rushed and just thrown in there at the last minute.
I wouldn't rewatch this drama purely because of the annoying and evil characters, unfortunately my tolerance for them is getting weaker. XD The ridiculous laughter the crazy "doctor" had was incredibly annoying. Seriously.
I only recommend this drama to those who can handle super evil and super annoying characters. I really enjoyed when they all turned into merpeople (voluntarily, of course!) If you enjoy action, comedy, fantasy and (EXTREMELY LIGHT) romance and mystery then this is the drama for you.
The story itself sounded interesting in regards to the characters but it did not sound like something new. Well, in general it isn't. But, MM makes this simple story into so much more. The characters get enough back story so you can feel with them or they get enough screen time so you'll warm up to them easily. It starts off simple and gets more complicated later on without making the show too strange. It stays as down to earth as you can get with a merman show. Also note, MM is one of those dramas that have the perfect length. If it had been longer, the story would have been dragged out, if shorter, it would feel rushed. It was just perfect!
The cast was quite good and a little bit of a surprise. Here I have to say, I have never like the female characters in a show so much as in MM. The females aren't just weak or strong but the know what they want while also showing their weaknesses and standing proudly. They don't just fold because someone is pushing them. And they also have a good sense, which means there are almost no "give someone else the fault" misunderstandings between the six leads in the drama. That was refreshing!
The laugh of the doctor was strange though...especially around the later episodes.
About the music - it was too loud. There were almost no no-sound scenes. So put your speakers or headphones on low volume. You'll still hear everything but you won't get a headache from all the music.
I'm also definitely gonna rewatch that one ^.^ I recommend watching this if you are annoyed with the typical female leads, want to have a fresh supernatural drama, wanna see merman in a drama for once or want to try something new.
