      I don't see why not. Her role in Legend of the blue sea is similar personality wise and even more comedic.

      I think you have to really enjoy the comedic aspect of Legend of the Blue Sea to want to watch it. I laughed so many times though. Jun Ji Hyun's role was hilarious. It had a really happy ending as well that tied up all the loose ends.

      I just finished watching Legend of the blue sea. I loved the character she played, it reminded me so much of Man From Another star. ( and all the other actors aswell) I'm really glad I watched it. :)

    Her skin is pretty and she looks great in whatever she wears! I love watching her in The Legend of the Blue Sea. *-* And of course, she's hilarious, too.
