Legend of the Blue Sea is a fun, fantasy based story that manages to seamlessly weave together two timelines into a cohesive story.

The strongest aspect of the show is the writing - the fantasy elements are clearly thought out, with rules that govern the world. There pacing is fairly steady (although there is some slow down as expected in the middle), but the strongest aspect is in weaving together the two tales into a story that made you ache for the characters. And while it would have been nice for both stories to entangle further, and to have the time spent in each more evenly divided, what we were given was great. The only real downside is that, for all that the story is different, those who have seen "You From Another Star", by the same screenwriter, will recognize many aspects, which reduces the wow factor.

The acting is also great, with Jeon Ji Hyeon taking the role of a mermaid out of her dept and embracing it. Again, there are flashes of her character from "You From Another Star" but Sim Cheong has enough quirks to also be distinct. The real breakout though is Lee Min Ho who, after a few middling projects, manages to recapture the glamour from City Hunter where he embodies the role and it's hard to imagine anyone else. You come for Jeon Ji Hyeon but stay for Lee Min Ho.

If the story was a little faster paced in the middle, tied the two plots together a little tighter and didn't feel quite so much like "You From Another Star" this would be a favourite. But that being said, it's a definite recommend for any fan of the leads or romantic comedies.

A historia até que é legalzinha, mas o casal principal tem 0 quimica, 0 real, não tinha nem como shippar

Achei um drama bem na média, nada surtante ou inovador. Não consegui ver tanta química no casal, a grande estrela da história e que me incentivou a continuar foi sem dúvidas a Shim Chung, mais uma personagem diva para a conta da Ji Hyeon! <3

Eu ainda não entendo como a maioria das pessoas acham esse drama ruim. Eu sei que não é lá essas coisas mas também não é tão ruim em si. Talvez seja porque estava passando na mesma época que Goblin, Romantic Doctor e WKBJ. A história era bem previsível em alguns momentos, mas apesar disso foi bem executada. E é claro que se juntar Lee MinHo e Jun Jihyun num drama vai gerar altos surtos. Eu amei eles juntos. Também gostei muito do Jo Nam Do <3

Eu ainda não entendi o que aconteceu com o Ma Dae Young no final.

I'm impressed with Lee MinHo in this drama, he improved a lot. ♥
Some episodes were boring, but the last three episodes got me hooked and the ending was good.

@stehcamine eu já achei foi bom eles terem feito 20 episódios, pelo menos não deixaram plothole igual goblin

The beginning didn't look as promising - as I think K-Drama always seem a little out of of place when they're filmed overseas. But after about 4 episodes you're in for a joyful, comical, heartfelt ride along drama cliches, which are still a pleasant watch as the main characters quickly grow onto you and the side characters are perfectly portrayed. Especially Lee Min Ho finally looked "human" while portraying Joon Jae. He was a bubbly fool when it came to love, an annoying drunk, and overall just a really normal, likeable character. His character had depth for the first time in his career (in my opinion).
I loved the music and the cinematography - especially the portrayel of the mermaid, Cheong, was perfect!
This drama is definitely not without flaws - the plot was seen many times, the characterization too- but I really liked the outcome! I marathoned the last 10 episodes because I couldn't stop watching.
What I especially liked about the main couple: the cuddles, the hugs, the kisses! The way those two comforted each other is sadly not often seen on Korean TV as most of the couples tend to be stiff, or rather not so generous with kisses ;) And Cheong was definitely the one with more emotional strength, which I liked too, as the roles were reversed here: Joon Jae cried while Cheong comforted him. Normally it's only the (fragile) girls/women who cry their eyes out while the (strong) men are comforting.

So thank you for those enjoyable 20 hours I could spent with you, Legend of the Blue Sea

Gostei muito. Não é daebak, mas me fez rir, chorar e me emocionar. Porém seria melhor com menos episódios, 18 talvez. Sentirei falta da Cheong <3

Could have been a really good drama if the mains were played by better actors. What a shame...
