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

    Nana Says:

    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.

    Oops! It’s not my cup of tea. Why they like to pair a boy and old sister? Drama’s stars? I do not think so.

    Peyutnduy Says:

    I watch it solely because LMH is in it.
    I’m not too fond of JJH.
    Their age difference is only 6 years but it’s so apparent that JJH looks much older than LMH in this drama.
    They both are handsome and beautiful but the chemistry is minimum.
    However, this drama is entertaining, interesting story.

    Tyras Says:

    It’s good that it’s happy ending, but I still don’t like how Sim Cheong is kinda selfish that she erased the memories of those who know her. I know she might thought that it’s for Joon Jae’s sake, but what’s the point of erasing it if she’s gonna come back? It’s good that Joon Jae remembers her, but what does she expect when she comes back? When Joon Jae acted like he didn’t remember her, she went all sad, like girl, you’re so complicated. And when Joon Jae said, “I’m the only one in this world remember you” Nah, you got that one wrong. The lil girl remembers her. In fact, how on Earth did Cheong do to erase the memories of everyone who watched the news and witnessed the scene when she took the bullet? The police officer? Did she meet him too before she went away? That must be awkward to say goodbye to someone that you’re not that close. It’s a little sloppy, I must say.

    dramalady Says:

    Lee min ho’s character in this drama is sort of stupid and arrogant. He acts badly too. I’ve never think he is a good actor anyway. It seems to me he has done something to smooth his jawline as well. He has a pretty face now but no character.
    Jun Ji Hyun is a good actor with good body language and style. She is a natural beauty as well.
