[Drama 2016/2017] The Legend of The Blue Sea 푸른 바다의 전설

Recommended Posts

I watched My Love From Another Star and Legend of the Blue Sea back to back and while I did see some parallels I enjoyed this drama overall and I would recommend it to others. Though I did have some issues with it. Like how Heo Joon-jae seemed to lose his magic-lighter powers to entrance people, ditto with his Sherlock Holmes level of observation… that just poofed away after a few episodes. Shim Cheong suddenly not having any kind of joy or whimsy halfway through the series. Sure, in a way they explain that as mermaids hearts harden when they are on land… but not if their loved in returned. What’s up with that? Did the writers forget their own mythology?

I did get some good laughs out of it: The dog going to english school, the bold dumpster diving fashion looks, Quickly grabbing the cash and drinking ALL the water to not be harassed in cliche drama-style, mugging a grade schooler, whacking herself in the head with a hardboiled egg because everything she learned was from television! Haha!

And I did like how Jo Nam-doo was kind of ambiguous after finding out the mermaid secret and playing double agent, that was a fun twist.

I just wish they could have kept the tone they established in Spain throughout the show while layering in the family drama and mermaid moments. It could have been one of the best, but it got a little too muddled and messy.

And many comments of this post were very positive. According to Chinese translation by 何夕 of partial comments, I translated to English.

** Recently, LOTBS got the best overseas performance, but no related reports, so people only know that Goblxx or other dramas are very hot overseas. I don't mean it need to hype, but even no basic promotion ?

** Is there any place where Lee Min Ho is not popular ? It’s just amazing, causing a syndrome in our country and becoming a representative of Hallyu. When writer Park Ji-eun has a slight miss, no other actors like Lee Min Ho to grasp the character’s soul and make it shine.

** Now I know why the industry said that Lee Min Ho is a brand himself, and why the director of "Believer" said that he didn't think of anyone but LMH as a super star.

** Lee Min Ho’s dramas, can increase the rating in our country, the advertisements can be sold out, and are very popular in overseas, so people will early line up to find him to do his next work ?

**I like Heo Joon Jae and Kim Dam Ryung. When Heo Joon Jae deceived in various identities, it's very interesting. It is true that his  acting to the details can make the character become alive and he can grasp the key points, haha William Choi, haha.

** LOTBS seems to be a big hit overseas, but is it really not reported at all ?

** At the time of the broadcast, there was not any news about Hallyu. Can it be released now? It’s really a weird production company. Anyway, it’s amazing.

** Lee Min Ho’s Hallyu power is still as it used to be. If he come out after his social service, must lead the Hallyu again?! But he is very low profile, so I like him.

** Hurry up the news of the next work.

** Lee Min Ho was also very low profile during his events before, no hype.
Comment Reply 1 : He need not to hype. He is not an actor in the cognitive period, but is already a superstar.
Comment reply 2 : Of course, there is no need to hype. In fact, he does not hype.

** LOTBS is completely based on the power of the actors to get such a high rating, and really also thank to actors in overseas.
