  1. Love it! Acting was exceptional. I think male and female lead had good chemistry. It was slow to build but the storyline is not supposed to have them have a CP feeling to begin with. They were master disciple relationship. Costumes, cinematography and music all beautiful!! Acting was what sold unfortunately that was not what people focused on. Ren Min did exactly what she was supposed to do in interpreting the role. Both of them integrated complex emotions into layers that needed to be portrayed.

  2. I really enjoyed this drama/love story series. However, It needed a better ending. They need a happy ending. Will there be a season 2?

  3. I did enjoy this drama, but Ren Min would not have been my choice for female lead. Even in a fantasy drama she could not convince me that her master felt true love for her. Xiao Zhan is excellent in his role, but his eyes did not reflect his normal immersion into the love connection. The drama could have been over-the-top good had they used a better lady lead. Ren Min’s interpretation just felt off. I will say towards the end she was doing a better job acting.

  4. Is there part 2? Part had 43 episode, but it doesn’t had a good ending, because he didn’t fulfill his promise to her yet. Also l, the sea kingdom (Sumo) didn’t grow and went back to see princess crimson, how he grow up? Please continue this movie and give a good ending, it’s a beautiful movie with good story.

  5. Omg this was incredible. The story, the acting, the scenery and special effects blew me away.. Im 61 y/o female, a tom boy, who usually doesn’t like “chick flicks” but omg PLEASE have a season 2. Shi Ying and Zhu Yan MUST Come back to each other and Chi Yuan and the Merfolk story needs to be told!!!!!!! I just happened on this show and I was addicted!

  6. I love this movie I just need a happy ending please bring him back to his wife so they can be happy.
