Legend of the Blue Sea: Episode 6

It’s not hard to fall for a hero like Joon-jae, who’s in pretty deep now and not even trying that hard to deny it anymore. He’s gone from being reluctant to help her to being reluctant to admit he likes helping her, but it’s plain for us to see, and that’s what I love about... More »

Okay, now this I want more of. Our hero turns into a hilarious bundle of contradictions today, as the romance progresses to the denial phase and he starts doing the very things he once called idiotic. Luckily for us, he doesn’t seem to have the self-awareness to know why he’s doing any of this, which... More »

I find this show a nice breath of fresh air, and often laugh-out-loud funny. Perhaps the You From Another Star connection has dulled the shine a bit so that this show doesn’t feel as fresh as that one did at the time, but I’m loving the brightness, the characters, and the undercurrent of sentimentality (particularly...

Every time we open in Joseon, I struggle with wanting to stay there and watch that drama unfold, because the emotional and romantic conflict seems inherently fuller in that timeline, even though it’s not technically the main drama. Today I’m even more conflicted because the past timeline develops its backstory into what I think will... More »

I’m really loving the tonal pendulum of this show, which is both sadder and funnier than I expected, but so well executed in both extremes. The comedy really ramps up in this second hour, sending us on a totally ridiculous farce of a chase that has me in stitches. But no matter how outlandish the... More »

Today saw the premieres of three dramas, all direct timeslot competitors on the Big Three broadcasters, but it was this show, Legend of the Blue Sea, that had the highest hype and the highest expectations. I’m always nervous when a show I’m looking forward to, which has writers and directors and actors I like very... More »

I swear, I was all Legend of Blue Sea’d out, after being inundated with all those promos and teasers and stills, and had intended to just ride it out till premiere day quietly. After all, there’s only so much you can say about pictures when the show hasn’t even aired yet, and promo fatigue is... More »

Jeon Ji-hyun becomes human in Legend of the Blue Sea
by | November 7, 2016 | 47 Comments
At this point it’s like a clown car joke, this constant influx of Legend of the Blue Sea promos that appears to have no end. They’re all very attractive promos, of course, but at this point I just want the show to start already. Mostly because I’ve run out of ways to describe the show... More »

Boy meets Joseon mermaid in Legend of the Blue Sea

It doesn’t look like they’re letting up on promos over at Legend of the Blue Sea, which is continuing to release a steady stream of stills, teasers, and posters. You’d think this pace would be unsustainable, but two weeks in and they’re still going strong. As gorgeous as Jeon Ji-hyun is as the mermaid heroine... More »
