K-Drama Review: Legend of the Blue Sea

Legend of the Blue Sea, is rated as one of the highly recommended SBS K-Drama. I first thought it was quite overrated. After reading the synopsis, I was not able to develop interest in the story line but I decided to give it a shot. To my surprise, when I started with the first episode, I ended up binge watching the entire drama in a span of just two days. This drama is about a human and a mermaid that fall in love with each other, and the consequences that follow. Their love story continues from the Joseon era where their love couldn’t be accepted, to a modern day love story in Seoul.
