I don't usually write reviews but I felt the urge to do so in this case.
This drama is something you don't see everyday. It is just so well done in my oppinion. Already rewatched all the available episodes thirce!
The actors, the music, the atmosphere, everything is perfect.
It also has so many life lessons, and really makes you think about life itself. I recommend to anyone to watch this, you read more will not regret it. The comedy in this drama is something I rarely met. I actually laughed till I cried.

10/10 this is a must watch!

Also if you enjoy fantasy/mystery/sci fi and comedy this is just for you. It resembles somehow my love from another star, given the fact that we have the same actress in both and the story has the same feeling to it.

,i love this drama!... Especially the actress who performed a great acting and has a sense of humor!...The character of the funny mermaid fits to the characters of the actress well..But Lee min Ho is a nut when it comes in kisseng scene...He looks like a maniquen, he is lacks of romance...I love Lee Jung SUK rather than Lee min Ho when it comes in kisseng scene....Lee Jung SUK is very hot read more guy who know tomplay well his role...

Supernatural, spunky female lead (ghost in Arang, mermaid in Legend) with a male lead that starts off indifferent but changes because of the female. Both males have to protect the females throughout the drama. Both males are also looking for their mothers. Both have fantasy, mystery, comedy, drama and romance, and both are based off Korean folktales.

The two of them about two lifetimes one in the past and one in the present and they are trying to change the history maybe in a different way but for me i think they are really similar and the both of them are good

    I don't hate this drama. I like Shim Chung( Jeon Ji Hyeon) ..She is sometimes cute, sometimes funny & at times bold too.. & Lee Min Ho is just Lee Min Ho what shall I say .. Hehe :D

    I tried but I just can't get into this drama. The plot is sooo boring. Nothing new or exciting. It just feels so dry and lacks depth. I can't even get myself invested in the joonjae/chung couple :/

    Oh boy... I wish LMH would finally get a role that puts him out of his comfort-zone... like playing a gay best friend or an incredibly funny weirdo or whatever. This kind of role is so incredible boring, and makes him look like the worst actor of all time. I wished for more variety when I started watching this... but yeah... LMH stays the same like he did in previous dramas.

      In Personal Taste LMH played a character who was pretending to be gay and was acting as the main girls friend (hell he purchased pads for her) ^^

      I've seen Personal Taste as well. But his role wasn't that overwhelming tbh^^

      The whole drama wasn't that special as well >D

      You should catch him up in Faith. I think it's his best drama up to date.
      Overall, I think he's doing historical type quite well. In the scenes here when he acts like the "past him", he shines much more.
