    I like to watch sweet romance drama and hopefully, this is a sweet romance drama whereby Ha Ni from The Mermaid she will become a human being being and Hyun Myung with sincere love towards Ha Ni under all circumstances.

    I will watch this drama and hopefully it is not a sleepy drama, as I hate to watch sleepy drama, melodrama and all day quarrel drama.

    Everything in this drama so cute and funnny ….잉여공주 cast fighting -♡

  31. 31 : mml Says:

    Episode 1 ,not bad like fairy tale story. I think it’s an adult fairy tale story. Okay, I will continue to watch episode 2

  32. 32 : Riley Says:

    I think it’ll be good. But there’s like 3 characters that piss me off already, plus in the preview for episode 2 I’m pretty sure right where they stopped it is where he just keeps walking.. There’s no abrupt pause in his steps and it ends so quickly so :<
    Do you think there's something wrong with that potion? Why was the guy so reluctant to give it to her and nervous when she drank it? (Or is this just me being over-observant and misunderstanding stuff)

  33. 33 : dewicess Says:

    i really hope that hani will end with chef shi kyung <3

  34. 34 : maknaee Says:

    Song Jae-rim is freaking hot :3

    Dislike Jin-ah; you keep eyes on hottie chef while you’ve a boyfriend. Heoool

    Can’t wait for eps 2, Ha-ni and Si-kyung have sooo much chemistry. But I doubt that Si-kyung is a human ….

  35. 35 : sharifa Says:

    it’s a really good drama. i like it. can’t wait for episode 2.cast “fighting”

  36. 36 : dinaz Says:

    Episode 1 is super cute,woww a modern,high tech mermaid who loves smartphones keeps it wrapped in a plastic,surfs internet and drools at the sexy chef..hehe..its hilarious and we have Ban Ji yeon’s bestie(Witch’s Romance)here as the drunk unni mermaid,she is so funny even her hair clip are tiny alcohol bottles..Lol :))
    Omg Song jae rim looks so hot here,he changed alot from his nail shop paris days,he looked nasty and hot there here is sexy and hot 😛 😛 and we get to see a shower scene too,what a feast to the eyes..keke
    i never knew a butt could be compared to an apple LOL..
    and the underwater kiss was so beautiful with blue waters surrounding a beautiful mermaid and a hot guy..like a fairy tale..
    i love the comments on the background too..haha..super funny,they make fun of the story,its my first time seeing something like this..cant wait for next episode..
    @maknaee why is shi kyung not a human??i m curious 🙂
    @Riley i am sure it must have some after-effects for which the man hesitated to give the potion to her..

  37. 37 : vic Says:

    who is the male lead?? LHM or KSK?.. anyway, this drama started out well… it’s a new and unique plot for Kdramas,. a cute and refreshing one I think… gonna watch the upcoming episodes..

  38. 38 : maknaee Says:


    Take a look when he’s alone in the elevator (arround 32:40 – 33:00) , the way he see himself in the mirror is suspicious, even the background instrumental.

    Yeaaah, the kiss was beautiful and superb! *swooooning*

    Idk why, but I keep getting Ji-sung’s vibe from Ohn Joo-wan. Sometimes he looks alike Ji-sung. Err… hairstyle factor, maybe kkk

  39. 39 : dinaz Says:

    @maknaee hmm very insightful,omo if he is not a human how perfect it would be..what if he is a special aquatic creature??hehe..btw who is the lead here sjr or ojw? i m in sjr team 🙂 🙂

  40. 40 : Ratna Says:

    I want eileen with si kyung … i dont like man who as hyun myung

  41. 41 : Jana47 Says:

    When will they broadcast the 2 episode of Surplus Princess please tell me

  42. 42 : Jana47 Says:


  43. 43 : Jana47 Says:

    I’m really excited to watch the 2 episode

  44. 44 : Jana47 Says:


  45. 45 : bigeye46 Says:

    yes so cute but all actress and actor new to me and i dun know which is real rich Shi Kyung or Hyun Myung poor if mermiad choice decision?

  46. 46 : Hannah Says:

    I haven’t watched this drama, I guess I’m waiting for someone to tell me it’s super best then only I watch it because I’m not really into fairy tale.

    Btw just wanna help,
    @Jana47 you can already watch it at dramabay. So far, I think they’re the fastest one to sub dramas. But it’s soft sub.

  47. 47 : JAA Says:

    First time I saw this drama I feel like why (mermaid) she is such a pervert in men, but okay it’s just with chef that she thought she fall in love with him only.
    I kind of don’t like it at first I think the story is pretty weird.
    after I finished ep1, they keep me watching it cuz Kim Ha Ni ‘s so funny haha , you will enjoy a pervert+cute+funny act+innocent+silly act+mean girl in these princess mermaid.
    hilarious drama!

  48. 48 : Sandy 2 Says:

    This drama is just too cute. I just watched episode 1 and hate that it only airs once a week. Very cute and funny.

  49. 49 : Kristal Says:

    Be sure to leave brain cells and an open mind for ridiculous things such as mermaid being able to charge her smart phone and shop online under the ocean. Yet, I watch.

  50. 50 : mml Says:

    Episode 2, the members of the share house are a bit weird, one thing they are good in the sense that they are kind and helpful people. I wonder can Hyun Myung fall in love with Ha Ni ? Actually Ha Ni is pretty and naïve, she’s not a materialistic lady, maybe, Hyun Myung should consider Ha Ni after a hurtful breakoff relationships with his girlfriend.

    I hope that this fairytale story can bring to a sweet romantic happy ending rather than to follow the actual fairytale story whereby, it gives a sad ending. So sad to watch sad ending dramas. Better to have some happy comedy and lively dramas.

    I will continue to watch episode 3.

  51. 51 : dinaz Says:

    Ep 2 is funny just that certain scenes are quite bold which we usually wont see in a normal drama..my fav scene would be when ha ni tried to strip Hyun myung’s pants off LOL..haha..
    @maknaee #38 i started to notice Joo wan in this episode,u were right he does resemble Ji sung a lot from certain angles..and i find Ha Ni like Go Ara when she smiles..she is doing well as the crazy and naughty mermaid who only dreams of kissing shi kyung..hehe 🙂
    Seems like jae rim is the second lead??i really hope not 🙁 i started watching this just for him..
    @Hannah u can just give it a try,its not the best drama but its quite different and funny 🙂
    @mml me too hope this drama wont have a sad ending like the original story of mermaids..

  52. 52 : usa-mary Says:

    @dinaz…is this drama good? I noticed your comment to @Hannah, regarding it not being “the best drama but its quite different.”

    Well, I personally go for and seem to gravitate to the ‘quite different’ kdramas more often than the usual norm, because they seem to turn out being the ‘BEST’ ones to watch enjoyment wise, IMHO.

  53. 53 : dinaz Says:

    @usa_mary chingu i find this drama very different from the other normal dramas and its cute and funny too..for a mermaid story its quite fresh and certain scenes surprises me for its its boldness 😛 😛
    Do give it a try it will be nice to have u on this page too discussing the episodes 🙂 🙂

  54. 54 : amal Says:

    Serial beautiful and Guetash claimed descend episodes Belize 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 you 🙂 beautiful <3

  55. 55 : lilly Says:

    Song Jae Rim must be the lead i don’t want the other guy 🙁 i want Jae Rim <3

  56. 56 : usa-mary Says:

    @dinaz-53: Ya chingua! This drama in a way, reminds me of the American movie Splash, starring Daryl Hannah, Tom Hanks, and John Candy. Daryl Hannah was a mermaid that went thru a similar metamorphosis to meet Tom Hanks.

    Back to the drama. Little mermaid Ha Na is…well…on the R-rated side. LOL Girl, what can you do with fins?! LOL My…my…my, she held that guy’s tuch a little long as they kissed under water.

    The viki commenters had me LOL when they called her gangster Ariel, the Terminator, etc. She boldly wrestled with the warlock (male version of a witch) for that potion.

    The one character, so far, I thought was too funny was the unnie mermaid, Ha Na went to for guidance on where to go and who to see in order to become humanized. That was one drunken mermaid. Now, I see why the sailors in old American movies was leery about the siren call of a mermaid late at night and covered their ears while out to sea. The mermaid was calling out of booze, and they didn’t want to share it. LOL (Sailors have been known for their drunkenness and cussing.)

    Then, to top it off, unnie had little bottles of airplane size booze in her hair for decoration. LOL That red starfish also in her hair must be soaking up all the booze from her blood stream. Well, at least she knows what the good stuff tasted like and didn’t let that dribble down the side of her mouth, like she did with the cheap liquor. Hmmm…I wonder if they have an AMA..Alcoholics Mermaid Anonymous down below.

    It’s going to be interesting to find out what happens to Ha Na after she drank all the potion, not leaving any for later. I know there had to be a warning or caution to it. Well, we’ll find out.

  57. 57 : usa-mary Says:

    Ha Na is kind of wacked out. She’s rather rough around the edges. Must be from living in the Han River for so long!

    I like the rules of Surplus House…ROCK! This Is Not Your Mom’s House! LOL

    Looks like that bowl-hair cut guy is a willing candidate to help Ha Na find true love. I saw that gleam in his eyes.

  58. 58 : riz Says:

    i really like kdrama is there any web site so i can watch this the idle mermaid? i think its totally different from kdrama that i’ve watch…please help me…thanks

  59. 59 : me Says:

    there are many but if u want eng subs u will find them at drama fever or viki or drama cool just search for it and u will find.

  60. 60 : mml Says:

    Episode 3. the share house friends continued to be funny and interesting. I will continue to watch episode 4 to be expect more to laugh.

  61. 61 : usa-mary Says:

    The lone female of Surplus House (before Ha Ni arrived) who likes the ‘John Lennon’ looking owner of the house has a gig where she’s getting paid to eat food via the internet. I’m aware of the mild, normal looking ‘watch us eat and describe the food to you’ different websites, but the playboy bunny eared, porn sounding while you eat sites??? Now, that’s a horse of a different color. Maybe, the writers’ exaggerated that part. Hopefully, they did because that’s a forte for pervs. LOL Anyway, I like how the writers interwove that gig into this drama.

    Surplus Princess…fighting!

  62. 62 : LoveBerrish07 Says:

    Jo Bo Ah as Kim Ha Ni
    Ohn Joo Wan as Lee Hyun Myung
    Song Jae Rim as Kwon Shi Kyung

    Who do you think Hani will be end up with???

  63. 63 : tingkeobels Says:

    i hope Ha Ni will ended up with Kwon Shi Kyung. This drama really have a lot surprises. Too bad it’s only airing once a week. Can’t wait to watch 4th episode

  64. 64 : cuity17 Says:

    @62 loveberrish07…….. I hope kwon shi kyung.. It’s bcoz of Song Jae Rim…. 😀 lol

  65. 65 : vic Says:

    this drama is refreshingly funny… and I like hearing OST of other popular drama here…

  66. 66 : elle Says:

    @maknaee ha i thought i was the only one who thought that ojw looks like ji sung

  67. 67 : Lilo Says:

    I feel Jo Bo Ah looks like Han Ji Won when she is smile ^_^

  68. 68 : LoveBerrish07 Says:

    @63 tingkeobels.. @64 cuity17 : yup, i love their chemistry! I cant wait for ep.4 . I love Surplus Princess and also the other TVN kdrama.

  69. 69 : dinaz Says:

    Ep 3 is equally funny Lol..this mermaid is really naughty,even her dreams are equally naughty..hehe :))
    i really hope jae rim is the lead the ji sung duplicate is cute too but please jae rim is one of my main reasons for watching this drams..so he has this temporary blindness which makes him avoid people?
    poor him 🙁 i really hope he is the one for Ha ni.. 🙂
    Kim seul gi looks so pretty here cant believe she is the same girl from flower boy next door and sseuriki oppa’s cousin in reply1994,it was so damn funny when she said ‘eat it before i slap you’..LOL i never tasted chicken feet but my mouth started watering looking at them enjoying it.
    @usa-mary glad ure watching this drama and enjoying it too..i love your humourous descriptions lol specially ‘bowl cut haired guy’ lol he is cute right 😛 he is having a huge crush on ha ni and i love that drunk mermaid too she is so funny want to see more of her..
    her blue fins are really pretty 🙂

  70. 70 : usa-mary Says:

    This drama brings out the eccentricities that people usually have, but keep hidden. The graphics are too funny!

    @dinaz-69: I know! The larger chain of grocery stores where I live now sell chicken feet, whereas they didn’t before. They don’t look as meaty as a chicken wing, but with the right seasoning and sauce, it just may work.

    Girlfriend…rice bowl haircut guy is a cute youngin’ and a keeper. I like him. The only thing is that the crown of his head was styled and the rest was strait. Hilarious! It shows he made the effort. Bringing a water can filled with water for her to drink, wearing a suit. Ahhhh!

    HM is funny…saying the chef guy looks like a praying mantis! LOL

    I also like the tall guy, too. It was so cute when he sought advice from the ‘online food eating chick’ about what to where when he meets Suzy.

    What’s with this Suzy chick! Did that wench invite two guys to go on a date with her? It looks that way. Depending on who’s the most aggressive is the one she’ll date?

    Now, nothing personal against the actor who is Suzy’s ‘oppa’ the manager of ‘?’ who dissed a perfectly appropriately dressed young man because he’s a 4th year university student who doesn’t work. Why did she call ‘the long and tall of it’ guy out in the first place? Well, here in the US, I’m considered average height for a female. But, when shawty showed up, I wondered where the rest of him went. I’m into math, but like to keep fractions where it belongs, in the math books. I couldn’t believe that she chose shawty over the University student. Girl, if a the top of a man’s head comes to either my earlobe, elbow, or navel, forget it!!!!! I’ll take the long tall cutie over step stool guy any time! Little smart mouth runt! LOL

  71. 71 : usa-mary Says:

    Naughty is right!

    GOT ABs! Now, these writers, and the director knows what will get ‘us’ women’s attention. Shower scenes are nice, but throw in an oiled down, sweat dripping, muscle flexing fine man exercising and doing push ups. With abs and the V-shape…muscular toned WIDE shoulders, tapering down to a small waist doing… What can I say…ME LIKE VISUALS!

    I don’t know if the writers will have ‘online eating chick’ and Mr. Surplus ‘John Lennon’ look alike pair up. But, her hawt description of his arched back O_O!!! This girl (and the writers’) is too much! Now, we’re all adults here, right?! When I looked at his arched back as I replayed her response; I wondered how could that make her so hawt. Well, the hawtness of his arched spinal position had nothing to do with the upright posture position that I had in my mind. Actually, it brought out the ‘woof-woof’ in her! LOL Okay…I will behave! This drama made me do it!

  74. 74 : Nang Hseng Lyan Naung Says:

    Song Jae Rim to be the lead!!!!! Please!!!!!!

  75. 75 : TS Says:

    Am I the only one who think Ha Ni will end up with Huyn Myung? 🙁

  76. 76 : LoveBerrish07 Says:

    @75 TS …dnt worry we will never know whos HaNi gonna end up… if you notice from the start they did not reveal whos the lucky guy … and all the ship fandom begins. 🙂

  77. 77 : cassie Says:

    I ship her with the Chef or the housemate////I like both but I think the house mate is the one. Nice drama. Love the actors and their acting a bit exaggerated. Lovable characters.

  78. 78 : iammee Says:

    the female lead do have a strong appeal but i find the two leading man lacking on it

  79. 79 : mml Says:

    Episode 4 also not bad. Ha Ha, I think I have been laughing for some funny behaviour of them. And am looking forward to watch episode 5.

  80. 80 : jihane Says:

    I want her to end up with Hyun Myung *-*

  81. 81 : Pamela Says:

    I love this drama. But I’m really hoping that ha ni would end up with shi kyung. Jo Bo Ah and Song Jae Rim just have a great chemistry with each other. I don’t like if she’ll end up with hyun myung.

  82. 82 : Pamela Says:

    Song Jae Rim so handsome … Shi Kyung and Ha Ni!

  83. 83 : sseuncha Says:


  84. 84 : usa-mary Says:

    LOL…witch Ahn gets much respect when on the scene at Surplus House. (Actually, it should be warlock Ahn; which is a male version of a female witch. That is, unless that potion he drank did some other type of switcheroo on him). Must be hot wearing that hooded coat since its summer time.

    Already, its obvious who’s going to get with whom… Unless, the writers surprise us by having the second lead male get the first lead female. That would be an interesting change.

  85. 85 : JAA Says:

    The last Ep so hilariously!!!
    I really can’t stop laughing when Ha Ni saw Shi Kyung as apple butt lol and make her wanna bite it! lol

  86. 86 : vic Says:

    hmmm.. Base on the synopsis above.. it is more likely that hani will end up with Hyun Myung…

    “The pragmatic Hyun Myung is trying to find a good-paying job to provide him with a comfortable life. But will he be distracted by Ha Ni, who has just 100 days to make Hyun Myung fall in love with her so that she can permanently remain as a human being?”

  87. 87 : Verra92 Says:

    Shi Kyung and HaNi Fighting !!!

  88. 88 : DO Says:

    Anyone who ship Ha Ni with Hyun Myung? Im not the only one right?

  89. 89 : hyung Says:

    88 DO yes u r not alone.. i’m with u on this 1.. i reaaaaallyy hope that ha ni ends up with hyun myung too..

  90. 90 : Jana47 Says:

    When Will the 5 episode will be aired I can’t wait to see it ??

    Who want to watch ep 5?😀😀

  97. 97 : Annie Says:

    Watch ep 5 here.

  98. 98 : nina Says:

    I want ha ni to end up with hyun myung tooo… His smile is just so great.. <3 I'm disappointed that people are being attracted to shi kyung's butt.. Yuck!!

  99. 99 : lily Says:

    I agree with you nina.. I mean how can ha ni look at shi kyung when a gorgeous guy like hyun myung’s just beside her?? :O Waaaaaa…..
    But i’m gona wait to see how she’s gona end up with hyun myung… 😛

  100. 100 : usa-mary Says:

    Two scenes just didn’t make good sense to me…

    The rice bowl hair-cut food commercial mimicking guy, who turned down the offer to become an office manager position (to make good money) at a law firm, and the altercation at witch Ahn’s food truck among the super heroes and….get this…Snow White. Especially, with the (picky) President of JH Foods who was there right at their disposal to impress!!!???

    On the other hand, I do like the sound effects, graphics, and food porn girl’s unique way of entertaining her viewers with costumes. All that, along with the acting, keeps this drama interesting.

    This drama is one I get excited about every week. It is just something different and out of the ordinary. I love the humor and its quirkiness. 🙂 I can not wait to see what happens in episode 6 huge cliff hanger left after 5

  102. 102 : maknaee Says:

    waaah I’ve just catching this drama up. So busy in real life lol.
    I loveee this drama. The one that made me ROTFL was Do Ji-young’s GDragon-Crooked parody, huahahahahaahaha. Freakin’ funny!~

    One of the guy from the JH elite study team, Kim Yun-seong, looks like Ahn Jae-hyun. I wonder if he’s Ahn Jae-hyun’s brother in real life ._.

    And thaaaanks to this drama. Apple isn’t just apple anymore. It will remind me of Shi-kyung’s butt -____- lol

    Anyway, I ship Ha-ni with Shi-kyung. His smile… gosh, swoooooning. But if she gonna end up with Hyun-myung… it’s okay then. What to do? It’s already kdramas formula kkkk

    Can’t wait for the next episode!

  103. 103 : Storm Says:

    This drama is fab! 😀 Highly enjoyable. I love the female lead sooooooo much I want to crawl though my screen and be her BFF. Edible apple bottom! Heeeheeeeee!

  104. 104 : niczej Says:

    Episode 6: Ahn Hye Young and Dae Oh Jok Bik. another love couple?? haha 🙂

  105. 105 : maknaee Says:

    Why… Why in the world must Shi-kyung protects Jin-ah? Poor Ha-ni -_-

    did you mean Park Dae-bak? Kkk I ship them~~

  106. 106 : neea Says:

    I am hoping Ha Ni ends up with Shi-Kyung. Shi-Kyung is so nice, didn’t even realise Jin-Ah using dirty tricks, poor thing. Hope Shi Kyung finds out very soon, like in the next episode …

    Ha Ni /Shi Kyung is soooooo very good together

  107. 107 : kimchilee Says:

  116. 116 : uee Says:

    Ha Ni/Shi Kyung pleez. Love the sparks between them

  117. 117 : Timeline Says:

    After watching Ep.8, I feel hopeless for HN&SK and even though the writers tried so hard to create story lines between HM&HN but i find it kind of boring, no any chemistry or bonding as a couple (for me) between them at all!!! More than that, I wonder it’s a story of mermaid or a jobless man since the plot devoted so much time to HM and not much progress about SK sickness at all. Besides, SK drove many hours (i guess) to catch up with Hani, but spend less than 5 mins. talking to her and drove back. Hmmm….speechless!!!!

    I saw the “up date” rating and hope for the best to the drama. However the rating sometimes may also reflect what the audiences want to see in there and the reason why they will continue to wait for next week eagerly and patiently or give up without a look back. And I’m the one whom almost been pushed to that point. Finally,I hope our feedbacks could be considered more or less. It’s my first time watching tvn and the first time also I broke my silence seriously.

  118. 118 : lovelonlys Says:

  129. 129 : Kimchi Says:


  130. 130 : maknaee Says:

    I’ll forgive tvN for cutting this drama into 10 eps as long as Ha-ni ends up with Shi-kyung /.\ err… If they still want Ha-ni with Hyun-myung, don’t let Jin-ah ends up with Shi-kyung hahahaha

  131. 131 : OneRussianGirl Says:

    Oh… How awful! How tvN can do such a violent thing! With my lovely drama.. My oppa Ohn Joo Wan… It is the most faivourite masterpiece, which I have ever seen.. That drama MUST to be continued!

  132. 132 : Anastasia Says:

    EY! WHY IS SURPLUS PRINCESS NOW HAVING 10 EPISODES SO SUDDEN!!! There would be 16 at first.. Why are the producers doing this omg.. this drama is my favourite of the ones that are currently airing omg. They want to have us dead or something. YA!!!!!! Sorry to be rude but you’d be better make it again to 16 episodes

  133. 133 : Rebekah Says:

    This drama really is good. 10 episodes only?!!! If its aired on Thursday at 23 pm, no wonder the ratings are bad. Consider that there are many more paople abroad who enjoy this. Change it back to 16 episodes!!!

  134. 134 : lovedramakorean4ever Says:

Many people complain about it. Thank u a lot if u don’t cut it 😀

  135. 135 : Fio Says:

    oh myyyy,, I think this drama is better than High school love on..

  136. 136 : Lensa Says:

    I want Ha Ni to be with Shi Kyun like if he proposes for her before she fell in love with the Hyun Myung . If she end with Hyun Myung i think i will hate korean drama forever please dont this happen.

  137. 137 : Kim Says:

    How come it is low rated. This drama is very nice compare to other drama. Please make to 16 again. We love this drama here in the Philippines. And how can the author make it end next week for episode 10 in just 45 minutes of airing. I can’t imagine how the ending will be.

  138. 138 : bigeye46 Says:

    yup why 10 episode only?this drama is nice..what a pity

  139. 139 : dewi Says:

    Why 10 eps please more it’s good drama

  140. 140 : CoolBeans Says:

    To be honest, the storyline is dragging in the comedy. The actors and characters are good. But, the story has not moved much since they tried to get jobs in the company. Ha Ni and Si Kyung should have had at least one great date by now (3/4 thru the original 16 episodes)1 The writer have us waiting until after she gets hired, then they can see each other. Boring. He sees the gold digger everyday! Sucks! The roommates have been working on a presentation for several episodes. There are a few funny moments. A once a week drama needs to pack a lot in each week to keep viewers interested. I watched this to see hottie Song Jae Rim! Everyone else is cute, but, wont keep me watching if Song Jae RIm is killed off!

  141. 141 : Clara Says:

    Seriously, I know with just 1 episode left, its too rush for Hani to realize her love for Hyun Myung while she’s still idolizing Shi Kyung that much. BUT if Hyun Myung is not her true love, I may think of this drama as a how-the-male-lead-get-heartbroken-twice-just-in-100-days show. And dont tell me you dont think Hyun Myung is the male lead, his screentime screams that to me, that’s all.

  142. 142 : nina Says:

    I love this show please make it 16 episode. I can’t believe that one episode left

  143. 143 : Melody Rivera Says:

    pls. make it to the last episode..
    love to watch this movie

  144. 144 : Timeline Says:

    I won’t watch Ep.10 and TVN drama anymore if Hani will end up with Hyun Myung. I hope tvn won’t do that to us. The drama lost enough of the track already ,but I hope some of them can be fixed in the last episode.

  145. 145 : Nori Says:

    plz plz… Shi Kyung with Ha Ni… i will not recommend this drama to others if she ends up with Hyun Myung.. that would just be such a killjoy.. He looks so adorable when he is thinking about her.

  146. 146 : Dessy300 Says:

    Ik they say That there Will be 10 episodes then alot should happen in That episode. I think the episodes durage should atleast be 2 hours.

  147. 147 : ririnrere Says:

    Please TvN.. I hope that Ha Ni will be end up with Shin Kyung.. /.\ please make my dream come true. please please.. i really love this drama.. so don’t make me dissapointed.

  148. 148 : sung hyun seok Says:

    This can’t be happening… I love this drama so much .. the producers got to be kidding me… I m so waiting for the ending

  149. 149 : Rawan Ali Says:

    plz plz… Shi Kyung with Ha Ni

  150. 150 : Timeline Says:

    If what we saw in Ep.10 preview should be what we will see at the end, I’m happy not to watch it,never ever!! This is unbearable!!

  151. 151 : marvell Says:

    unbearable? why? please, bring it to original 16 eps.

  152. 152 : dhi kra Says:

  155. 155 : ndy Says:

    how was the ending? is it really bad?

  156. 156 : hny Jo Says:

    waaahh….its end….the true love should not him….no chemistry at all…they r frento..hmmm

  157. 157 : bigeye46 Says:

    Director: Baek Seung Ryong
    Screenwriter: Ji Eun Yi, Park Ran, Kim Ji Soo
    all actress and actor..are good..i dun believe it still low rating..sigh..
    never mind next time better one fighting..

  158. 158 : KDCraze Says:

    This is one of the worst ending in K-drama. I can’t believe that after makes Ha Ni and Hyun Myung together then Ha Ni disappear. After 1 year then Ha Ni appear again and that’s the end. What kind of ending is that ? I’m disappointed with this drama ending. Such a waste of time watching this drama.

  159. 159 : Rawan Ali Says:

    Heck if Baraf Llano eventually Mint vassal of the foundation

  160. 160 : josie sigrid Says:

    I hate the ending.. I’m really sure they twist the story.. its supposedly Mr. Shi Kyung and the mermaid..

  161. 161 : josie sigrid Says:

    but it was written in the last episode that they will be back.. so I guess there’s a season 2 for this drama.. 😀 but i really hope that Mr. Shi kyung and Ms. Han will be the main lover..

  162. 162 : ladyarcher Says:

    Im disappointed about the ending. Ugh

  163. 163 : YoRoseberry Says:

    Yo- please continued part 2 …. Why the ending so weird?? So she is human or still a mermaid ?

  164. 164 : jenny Says:

    la fin est bâclée jamais vu un navet pareil –‘

  165. 165 : najma Says:

    So dissapointed with the ending. But not hate it all. At least I can see another side of song jae rim… if there is next season, i wish they switch the end with shi kyung and ha ni.

  166. 166 : maknaee Says:

    I found myself crying along Shi-kyung’s tears when he’s sending Ha-ni off to Hyun-myung T___T

    Shi-kyung said that he missed the timing, he was one step late… You’re like that because Ha-ni is your first, babeee. You’ve no experience with a girl before. Gyaaaaa T_T

    Ha-ni and Hyun-myung’s kiss just left me cold, even after her disappearance, I didn’t feel sad at all. Hahaha. Nothing can beats Ha-ni and Shi-kyung’s kiss~~

    Next time, I wish dramagod lets Shi-kyung and Song Jae-rim’s role in the future to get the girl!

    amen /.\

  167. 167 : Digi Says:

    Oh my god! I cant believe it?! Why oh why? I love this drama…. They are all good actors!

  169. 169 : Jennifer Says:

    Please put it back on it is a great drama

  170. 170 : hny Jo Says:

  171. 171 : JAA Says:

    I need S2 please!

  172. 172 : miss olive Says:

    Is it really going to be a season 2? I dont think they will want to have the same situation (low percentage). But I enjoyed watching the drama but the end was a knife straight in the heart! The end was a little disappointing.

  173. 173 : Bri Says:

    I really loved this drama but the ending….only 10 episodes I wanted to see what happened though. I hope they make a second season ! Other than the ending it was a really good drama !

  174. 174 : Nised Says:

    Sad!!! the ending is really bad. too Rushed. But was very nice drama! Why cut to only 10eps! i want more! its like the story not enough time to develop yet.

  175. 175 : Dong Says:

    disappointing finale

  176. 176 : love hani & shikyung Says:

    why is the end? it’s not truth. i think Shikyung has to be a real love for Hani.
    Please have a season 2 we want Hani & Shikyung!!!

  177. 177 : hani & shikyung Says:

    I hope you could re-do the story, it’s true that shikyung is the true love, and no offense to hyunmyung oppa there’s no chemistry between you and hani unlike shikyung and hani, so we hope if you ever decide to make a season 2 can you atleast make shikyung oppa to be the true love, JEBAL!! 🙁

  178. 178 : dustin Says:

    can’t hardly wait for the next season,i just hope Song Jae Rim’s character will still be there,i love him too much.

  184. 184 : Florence Says:

    The drama was ok though it would have been great if she ended up with jae Rim

  185. 185 : ann Says:

  199. 199 : OK OK OK Says:

    I just finished watching Surplus Mermaid over the last 3 days.

    Impressed by Song Jae Rim transformation after The moon that embraces the sun the cool bodyguard though I like his role in MoonTEESun too.

    the other dramas he acted in i have not watch – i will watch since he acted in it 🙂

  200. 200 : OK OK OK Says:

    In Surplus Princess, Song Jae Rim ssi,
    you are so cool, handsome, upright (didn’t take advantage of the 2nd lead scheming girl who tried to seduce you).
    You even tell her you treat her as colleague only. Very Gentleman.

    I am impress too that you still like lead actress instead of afraid of her after knowing that she is a mermaid.

    I am fed up why such a good man still cannot win her heart??? 🙁

    If mermaid don’t want you. Please come to me – ha ha.
    I want you to be my life partner. 🙁

  201. 201 : OK OK OK Says:

    writer nim

    If there is 11 episodes onwards, Please consider my request. (pls also take note many comments above, 99% prefer Kim Ha Ni ends with Kwon Shi Kyung.

    1) Let Song Chae Rim as Kwon Shi Kyung ends up with lead actress Jo Bo Ah as Kim Ha Ni / EiRin.

    2) if you still want Ohn Joo Wan as Lee Hyun Myung to end up with Kim Ha Ni,

    Pls DO NOT make Song Chae Rim to end up with the scheming 2nd lead actress Park Ji Soo as Yoon Jin Ah even she has turn better.

    Better let Song Chae Rim be single or end up with another pretty kind lady.

    Thank you for your attention. 🙂

  202. 202 : dimples Says:

    Started off really funny,got a little bored but still managed, but the last episode was a joke, it seems like its rushed to finish, (heard its been cut short coz of the rating), but the ending was just odd in my opinion. And I too like main female lead with Si Kung (the chef) waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay better. so sad to see him cry 🙁

  203. 203 : Shellsbells Says:

    Such a fun drama liked it a lot. Well worth the watch and a fan of the entire cast kudo’s

  204. 204 : sue virgin We want to put a door between master bedroom and bathroom where there isn't one now...so we need door jam and door....the opening measures: 36"X 84".....the avalon style is similer to our other interior doors...would like an estimate. Says:

    Can I buy a Surplus Princess (The Mermaid) poster?

  205. 205 : Red Says:

    This was one of the funniest series I have seen in ages. I am disappointed that it ended early.

  206. 206 : passer Says:

    its a pity i only know of this drama in 2017
    just watched it via cable tv (paid)
    its a nice korean drama, not too draggy etc but i didnt know it ended at ep10! i am expecting a bit more of ‘after’ she returned
    google n realised its meant ot be 14 episodes but cut to 10.
    rating doesnt seem good too
    really a pity
    the actors/actresses can act but cant get high rating
