Both have this paranormal genre, while the male-lead is an alien in "Star" the female-lead is a mermaid in "Legend", and both have super-powers as creatures. Both series follows up the path of true love through reincarnation, humor and excitement! And lastly, both dramas have Gianna Jun in role of the Female-Lead !

They have very different plots but the main elements and sort of development of both of these dramas are similar. This is because:

· They are by the same screenplay writer.
· The female lead is far away from her home.
· The female lead hides some things about herself from the male lead.
· The male lead at first appears to be standoffish and not caring but is actually trying to help the female lead feel comfortable and help.
· The male lead is from an influential/wealthy background and female lead does not know.
· The male lead is usually introverted and not interested in others but is sweet and caring with the female lead.

If you liked Crash Landing on You I recommend watching Legend of the Blue Sea.

Both about past lives and how that affected the characters' current lives.

In both dramas, the leads remember their past.

Both have supernatural elements outside of the past life/future life trope.

Both have wonderful OSTs. CT is more artfully done while Legend is more quirky and fun.

Human man falls in love with a mermaid, tries to protect her secret and keep her safe.
They both know if humans find out she is a mermaid, they will want to exploit her.

Both are romantic and fantastic dramas with interesting plot and charming characters (with different topics). In both girls must to hide their another magical side (but in Leh Nangfah she defeats a curse).

Both of these dramas are similar generally. This is because:

· The female lead is from another world
· The female lead hides some things about herself from the male lead.
· The male lead is from an influential/wealthy background.
· The male lead is not interested in others but is sweet and caring with the female lead.

The crime part of the story in W reminded me of The Legend Of The Blue Sea
Both are Love story with cute and sad parts as well
(and with their own kind of humour)

I feel like these two dramas are very similar in a way. It's basically about the past but the drama is in the present form. Both are interesting and the bromance is cute! xD
Recommended by Drama_Lover
Also about a mermaid falling in love with a human. Also a cute cast, beautiful, funny (and a bit sad) story + it's short but enough to fill you with good emotions.

*There are some similarities in the 1st episodes (the mall, the food...), perhaps there will be some more till the end of Legend of the blue sea.

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
Recommended by Banada6
Both are centered around mermaids, the male leads have sketchy occupations, and there are interspecies romances.

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.

Water always is the mystery entity.... for SSL it's time travel and for LotBS is memories. In a sense, they're both time travel and show how love has no time but overall they have the same comedic feeling and "foreigner" trying to get accustomed to life in a new world.
