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.
Legend of the blue sea was TOP 1 of overall ranking in Japan dTV.
