How can a mermaid from the Joseon era survive in modern society?

Shim Chung is a mermaid who follows her one true love, a nobleman’s son named Kim Ryung from the Joseon Dynasty, to modern-day Seoul. Ryung’s modern doppelgänger is Heo Joon Jae, a highly sterminated scam artist who first becomes interested in Shim Chung because of a jade bracelet worth $6 million that Shim Chung wears.

With nowhere to go, ShimChung is taken in by Joon Jae, who also finds his con partners, Jo Nam Doo and Tae Oh, hiding out in his home from a vengeful past victim of their scams. Shim Chung discovers a rival for Joon Jae’s heart in Cha Shi Ah, a researcher at KAIST who deals with ancient artifacts.

When a dangerous terminateer named Ma Dae Yeong, sent by Joon Jae’s stepmother who wants to make her own son the heir to Joon Jae’s fortunes, can Shim Chung survive her strange new environment while also helping Joon Jae avoid the dangers that await him?
