Set in the 17th Century, Jang Beo Jin is a young female diver on Tamra Island. She doesn't particularly enjoy her situation and dreams of one day leaving the island. One day, to her shock, she discovers a young blond haired man laying on the beach. The young man's name is William and he is a shipwrecked British citizen. Another young man named Park Kyu enters the island under the disguise of one of the many convicts sent to Tamra Island. In actuality, Park Kyu is a budding government official known as a Seon Bi. These three young people then become involved in a hilarious love triangle.
Cast & Credits
Next, the cast was mediocre, in my opinion. I loved that they made a westerner one of the main leads. It's very different and was what intrigued me to watch this drama. I was a little disappointed when he started acting, though. (But, it was pretty good for someone who was not a native Korean speaker.) The girl who played BJ had a voice that was very annoying, and she seemed very young. In the last few episodes, she flashed a few smiles that seemed forced. I could tell that she was not fully immersed in her acting. Other than that, the rest of the cast was splendid.
Finally, overall, I really enjoyed this drama because it was unpredictable at times. I thought that BJ would end up with William because of the first few episodes, but I was wrong. And I thought that Yan would also fall in love with BJ. The ending was good, but I felt that it lacked to deepen the relationship of PG & BJ. (Because I honestly felt that the fans would love to see their relationship go a tad further.)
I absolutely recommend this drama to those who are patient.
The Tamna scenes where they were diving for abalones were beautiful, and overall the scenes were beautiful! Music is also very good, and they chose the right music to set the mood of the different scenes.
I may be a little biased in rating this drama though, because I was extremely happy with who ended up with Beo Jin XD. It is worth the watch, although you have to put up with a lot of crying from Beo Jin. However, that didn\'\'t ruin the drama at all for me! Right after finishing this drama I felt like watching it aaaall over again. It surpassed my expectations by a LOT!
