Whatever screenwriter has Park Ji Eun has in store for her second fantasy themed K-drama Legend of the Blue Sea, it will certainly involve lots and lots of active acting from leading lady Jeon Ji Hyun. I thought she was the heart and soul of alien-movie star romance drama You From Another Star but she did merit some get some critique for slightly overacting even if her character called for it. It appears the same is being called up here as the 4th preview for the drama shows her mermaid Shim Chung in her own comedy titled fish out of water foreigner acts weird.

At least Lee Min Ho shows zero shades of his Heirs character, so I’ll just be content watching them bike off prettily through the streets of Spain.
