Synopsis

Inspired by a classic Joseon legend from Korea’s first collection of unofficial historical tales, about a fisherman who captures and releases a mermaid, this drama tells the love story between the son of a noble family in Joseon era and a mermaid.

How can a mermaid from the Joseon era survive in modern-day Seoul? Shim Chung (Jun Ji Hyun) is a mermaid who finds herself transplanted to modern times. She is caught by Heo Joon Jae (Lee Min Ho), a charming but cold con artist who is the doppelgänger for Kim Moon, the son of a nobleman from the Joseon Dynasty. But in the present time, Joon Jae works with Jo Nam Doo (Lee Hee Joon), a skilled conman who guides Joon Jae to become a genius scammer. But Joon Jae’s friend, Cha Shi Ah (Shin Hye Sun), who works as a researcher at KAIST, may be Chung’s only hope for surviving in her strange new world.

    please don’t give us such a sad ending
    all of the story would be so pointless if the mermaid can’t be together with the one she loves.

    really love Sim Cheong & Heo Joon Hae. very great chemistry

    To be honest, the storyline of this drama is not that great, but the producer of this drama is using the main leads to make this drama super hyped. It’s apart of their marketing. If this drama were to be acted by different actor who is not as popular as Lee Min Ho, this drama is not gonna have high ratings.

    I’m a lil bit disappointed as this is LMH’s last drama before he goes to army. I was expecting more from him, Joon Jae’s character is not thag challenging. It’s kinda waste as he’s talented.

    To LMH fans, I’ve nothing against LMH. And don’t get me wrong for pointing all these thoughts. I support this drama solely because of LMH, but I don’t really enjoy watching this drama as much as I enjoyed watching his previous dramas.
