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.

    I haven’t seen any new articles about the plagiarism. Maybe they’re trying to control it from coming more to the media and try to solve the issue internally. But to say that they did not plagiarize at all is a lil bit ignorance. If only the writer said it’s inspired by Sherlock and Splash, I think fans would be okay with it.

    #94 & 95 Ms K / ms k

    To Ms K, if u’re not a fan of LMH, it’s better 4 u to stop watching it cause tbh, even tho I love LMH, I find this drama boring too. So I agree with ms k.

    & I agree tht Romantic Dr is so much better the storyline.

    Leave this page if you dont like the legend of the blue sea..coz we dont mind your negative comments ….you dont know the hard ships of everyone who worked in this drama especially the actors directors and writers…ive seen a lot of kissing scene underwater the story between mermaid and human….there is issue whatever thats why im thinking why they give it such a big deal in this drama….and some of fans whos ignorant to know the real things keeps posting it hay hell out of them….think before you post….legend of the blue sea is the best drama to me….its light story funny romance and magical.i hate heavy drama coz it affects me…i want to watch a drama to keep up all my stress aside not to add to my burden…lee minho and gianna jung fighting were here to support all the way☺😃😉👍👍👍❤

    Hannah Says:

    Sometimes I feel LMH fans or LOTBS fans as general have got to chill. You love this drama? Good for you. Other people commented they don’t like the drama? It’s up to them, they’re just expressing their opinions. Others saying they gonna stop watching this drama? Well, good for them. At least we won’t be seeing them posting negative comments after this.

    I watch all 3 dramas (LOTBS, OMG, & WFKBJ) and of course I’ve my own bias. In the beginning, I didn’t like this drama because I hated how the writer made the mermaid became so stupid. But after ep 5 & 6, it’s getting better. Sim Cheong has her warm side and slowly becoming human.

    So chill and enjoy the drama. There’s no need to attack them back just because they don’t like the drama. You cannot force everyone to love what you love.

    Hannah Says:

    And about the plagiarism issue, I learned about copyright law and if the writers of Sherlock and Splash or whichever company that owns the copyrights have the right to sue this drama and there would be series of trials which we may or may not know about it or they would just settle it internally. You love this drama? Good. But don’t be ignorant about it and saying it’s not happened. Law is law.

    The best drama of this year!Here is a very good Comedy line,not so naive and foolish as in Goblin. Very beautiful,colorful history of Chosun.And what beautiful pictures…breathtaking…mmmm. Timely Korea is shown so beautifully that I want to go there.Thanks to the whole team for this MASTERPIECE!!!

    Kyr Says:

    I think Goblin is so so so so so so much better than LOTBS! @BIKI
    Goblin’s production team has done splendid job on CGI to make the drama looks like holywood movie. Unlike this drama, the settings look unreal, which is 1 of the reasons why I dont like this drama. It looks fake & cartoon during mermaid scenes.

    BIKI Says:

    That is a minus Goblin that he was shot not in Korean,it repels him from view.Battle 1 series steal from episode 6 Game of throne”the battle of the bastards”,it is so obvious that even I was embarrassed for the writer.If you want to remove Hollywood and the money should be spent as they are,and turned out,lost their individuality and got a cheap parody of a bunch of advertising.
    The Legend of the blue sea has its own personality,its own charm and it will be special.
