My Poseidon 我的波塞冬 is a 40 episode adaptation of the novel of the same name authored by Miao Juan 缪娟. The series stars Eleanor Lee as An Fei and Leon Zhang as Ye Hai in a modern day version of the love story between Poseidon and Amphitrite.
If you know your Greek mythology, you’ll know who I’m talking about alright – the god of the sea, earthquakes and horses (yes, THAT Poseidon) and his wife, the sea goddess Amphitrite. So it’s only fitting that in the modern day adaptation of the story, the sea plays some part in the story as well. Also playing supporting roles in the series are Johnny Zhang Junning (as Mo Liang), Sui Yu Meng (as Liu Lan), Long Zheng Xuan (as Lin Hua Yin) and Dean Liu (as Ye Tian).
An Fei is a marine biology student who is attracted to the talented scientist, Mo Liang (Johnny Zhang). She aspires to one day become a top marine researcher responsible for the protection of the oceans. Her life is disrupted when she makes the acquaintance of Ye Hai, a young man whose sudden appearance in her life seems to bring her bad luck.
To her vexation, Ye Hai not only opposes the experimental project helmed by Mo Liang which he says has the potential to harm the oceans, he also calls dibs on An Fei whom he claims is his wife! Of course An Fei (like any sane woman would, hello) tries to avoid the strange and arrogant Ye Hai – that is, until she realises that he may be right after all. As memories of their time together as Poseidon and Amphitrite surface, it seems they are pre-destined to be lovers and partners for all time in the protection of the seas.
