    I don't know about the drama because apparently it made significant changes but in the novel

    The mermaids get a happy ending because lyf frees them from slavery. He and yukee's characters die in the process and I am still confused as to who yukees character loves, she professes to love lyf throughout the novel right until the end, where she enters zyc's dreams as a spirit when he is about to die, and says that they'll be together eternally(???). After zyc dies, he passes his throne to yun xi and na Sheng becomes his queen.

     

    A lot of stuff changes because kong Sheng is supposed to be bad, hence why lyf hates them so much. Kong Sheng stabbed the mermaids in the back and made them slaves after they helped the rulers ascend to the throne. It's why he went and lied about he and yukees relationship, in order to shame her family and get revenge, since her ancestors also took part in hurting his ancestors (if i remember correctly). His character was very gray but it all got changed in the drama. Lol rumor has it that lyf was so frustrated by the script situation he yelled on set where are the good scriptwriters at

     

    Thanks so much!
    So for if the ending respects the novel is:

    Spoiler

    Sad ending

    Eternal Love of Dream has followed quite closely The Pillow Book, the novel it's based on.

     

    The first half of the drama adaptation is the backstory of Feng Jiu's devotion to Dong Hua (he saving her, and she trying to repay the good deed), and the mortal arc. The actual story of the two begins only when they finally meet as Dong Hua Di Jun and Bai Feng Jiu at the wedding of Ye Hua and Bai Qian, Ep24 of ELOD. 

     

    The second half of the drama adaptation consists mainly of the Fanyin Valley and Aranya's Dream sojourns of Dong Hua and Feng Jiu. The story of their shadows Aranya and Shen Ye was also brought to life, and how, through them, the formerly undestined couple would finally have a fate together.

     

    Though it's unfortunate that you felt the story was deliberately extended in the 2nd half of the drama, it is as narrated in the 2nd book volume of the novel.

     

    To be honest, most readers felt that there should have been 60 episodes or more of the drama, since there are details and parts of the book story  that were not in the show. ^_^

     

    As for prequel, did you mean Eternal Love/Ten Miles of Peach Blossom? That is not a prequel per se, but a stand-alone, first story in the series of the Three Lives, Three Worlds universe books of Tang Qi Gong Zhi. The second book, Eternal Love of Dream, or The Pillow Book, is the very own story of Dong Hua and Feng Jiu.

    Yes, I meant Eternal Love. I didn't know whether to call it main story or prequel.
    From halfway through I found it boring... especially Dong hua became a bit too sugary.
    I had high expectations, because I really liked their story... I was looking forward to the drama.
