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.

worst thing you can do to yourself is watching ep00 as it literally spoils it all.

So disappointed with this drama...but then I shouldn't put my expectation high since it's the same screenwriter that did My Love From Another Star and I didn't like that drama either :(
Wonder if I should watch producer and be disappointed again :(

вот актеры - хорошие, сюжет интересный, а сложилось все как-то средненько. Хотя концовка мне понравилась

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
