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.

    Yeeeeeah another drama for Park Jin Young! Can’t wait to see how he will portray this role! He did an amazing job in My love Eundong, and set a nice firm base for the character that kept me glued to the drama. If it wasn’t for Jin Young I would have missed a beautiful love story dispite of being not so fond of a some what serious drama.

    Hannah Says:

    Watched the first episode and I think the writer is trying too hard to make it funny but it doesnt turn out to be funny at all. I find it annoying how the mermaid is acting so stupid, like so damn stupid and she doesn’t talk at all. I almost thought that she couldn’t even talk in the beginning.

    prittee Says:
