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.

    USA Says:

    Why are the most female leads much older than the male leads in dramas? It’s very obvious lead women are older in their face & looks unnatural to have boys as their lovers. Don’t fool the audience. jeon-ji-hyun is SIX years older than Lee-min-ho! Sorry, but she is & looks older than him. Guess mermaids age faster… Run lee-min-ho!!

    This drama just too hilarious,,, this is the first koren drama who able to drive me and my colleagues together in one room just to watch a film online in our leisure time at HOspital!! What a stress reliever! It become viral in our hospital n we enjoy the romance between the protagonist and their perfomances here. Even my male colleagues love this drama and laugh to tears everytime the heroine act a fool.. They love her voice, unique comical expression and and worship her charming face so much (eventhough i think maybe she is in early 30 )#theyfoundkoreangirlactressvoicealittlebitnoisy# . And the Male protagonist has a beautiful face! 😍 Overall..this is is a reccomended light drama and i find it it fascinating. Good work legend of the blue sea,and thank you for beeing there 😄
