Kompoul Yuthsil Neang Tep Machha is an innocent, naive mermaid, who is oblivious to the world beyond the waters of her own world. One day, she happens to upset the Sea King and is sent to the human realm. In this new world, she meets a human boy, who she will eventually fall in love with. Initially, things may appear to be a joke for Hong Ling, but later the consequences of her actions comes at a much larger price than she will have imagined.
As the legend goes, a mortal and a mermaid fall in love. And thus, they have to overcome many obstacles as they try to stay together. Of course, there’s always someone who wants to break up the couple. However, there are also many that support the main couple. I honestly had my heart broken at one of the one-sided love relationships in this drama. Almost all the main relationships in this drama are pure and heartwarming. But it’s annoying to see how easily Hong Ling is fooled in the story.

Sometimes the acting made me want to cringe. But other than that, I loved the sparks between the Prince and Tong Xin. I really focused on them alot. Of course, the love between Zhang Zhen and Hong Li is heartbreaking at some points. However, after watching The Legend of Lu Zhen and the movie, Palace, I’m kind of tired watching her act. I really dislike her crying scenes now, to be honest. I’m not a huge fan of Kenny Kwan either. But their acting is decent. The one acting as the Dragon Prince was kind of dull at the beginning but it got REALLY REALLY GOOD. It broke my heart when I watched him.
