I’m catching up with Chinese dramas and My Mr. Mermaid is one that listed in my watching list. (浪花一朵朵) cast Seven Tang Yun Song and Dylan Xiong Zi Qi. Currently still airing and again, this drama is adapted from Chinese novel with same title, Lang Hua Yi Duo Duo written by Jiu Xiao Qi (酒小七).
Synopsis based on Novel (Credit to Shushengbar)
Yun Duo, a trainee reporter at Sports Weekly, was assigned to interview at a swimming competition, but she has a phobia of water since she almost drowned previously. During the interview process, she accidentally fell into the swim lane, where the unfavored swimmer Tang Yi Bai luckily saved her. In order to repay the favor, Yun Duo helped out-talk the reporters circling Yi Bai. Since then, the two formed an indissoluble bond.
Yi Bai’s surprising performance at the competition earned him a lot of attention from the media, and his previous doping rumor was dug up. Yun Duo was the only person outside the swimming field who believe in his innocence. Slowly, Yun Duo and Yi Bai became friends. Coincidentally, Yun Duo’s new rented room was in Yi Bai’s house, and the awkward yet interesting days began. The easy days did not last forever, and Sports Weekly hired a new employee by the name of Lin Zi, who vowed to make Yi Bai never return to the swimming stadium since he believes that Yi Bai was the reason for his younger sister Lin Sang’s accident. In the midst of the brewing trouble, Yi Bai challenged his enemy Ouyang Heng to the most important competition in the career of a sprint swimmer.
But while trying to courageously stop a criminal, Yi Bai was injured and was likely to miss out on the competition. Yun Duo accompanied Yi Bai in his recovery, encouraging him to not give up on winning. After many investigations, the two found the root of Lin Zi’s hate. While Lin Zi insisted that his vengeance was an act of justice, Yun Duo believed that Yi Bai was innocent and promised to him that she’ll never betray or leave him. What was the truth behind this incident? Will Yi Bai be able to recover and defeat Ouyang Heng? After Lin Sang awakes from her coma, what kinds of barriers will she create in Yun Duo and Yi Bai’s relationship?

My Impression (^.^)
Until this moment, I haven’t read the novel so I don’t have idea how close the story. But the drama itself has taken my heart, I get hooked with it. I like the Actresses and actors, the characters especially Yan Duo (Seven Tang), Tang Yi Bai (Dylan Xiong) both of these actress and actor have such bright and beautiful smiles mainly Dylan Xiong. I like his smiling face because it seems be able to give warm feeling and very comfortable vibe ^-^
For me the story is well-pace (at least until now) because it isn’t too dragging or too fast. I like the sweet moments between Tang Yi Bai and also Yun Duo, childish Qi Rui Feng, Tang Yi Bai’s best friend and also arrogant Ou Yang Heng (who ever be best friend with Tang Yi Bai and Qi Rui Feng)
My impression might slightly bias because I like Seven Tang not because she is stunning beautiful but because her acting is not bad. No matter what type of characters she played, I just interested to watch LOLS.
You can watch the drama with English subtitles in Vikii and Youtube. The sub also fast coming out less than 24 hours after the drama airing in China.
