This morning I was having a conversation with a friend and I was sharing her some photos of an upcoming Chinese sci-fi drama, Ice Fantasy. For the record, I never watched Chinese sci-fi drama or film because I find it confusing.
The only reason why I was browsing through this was because of the Ice Prince portrayed by Ma Tian Yu. I think the costume is stunning and so I wanted to share this my friend. We were discussing how the the costumes and plot resembles Lord of the Ring.
Although, the story is about an ice prince falling for a top sorceress of her generation.
In the middle of our conversation, she brought up a story about Mermaid. At first, I didn't know what she was talking about but I remember it's the hottest summer film in China. It was produced by Stephen Chow (Kung Fu Hustle, 007). Initially, she thought it was an action film but realized it was a comedy. She shared me this clip and I couldn't stop cringing how ridiculous it is -- a mermaid flying, flipping and a octopus man trying to save her.
After our conversation, I was scrolling through the teaser images of Ice Fantasy, well particularly the Ice Prince. Everything was fine until I was haunted by this image...

A merman Ice-Prince? LOL.

This is the reason why I can't watch mainland dramas. It's too comical for a sci-fi genre.

Has anyone tried watching asian sci-fi drama?

I saw the clip. She's flying 馃檮 how is that possible? She's half a fish! And that half octopus man looks disturbing!
