Just two episodes into Legend of the Blue Sea and I’m in a state of satisfaction, like floating weightlessly in calm warm Caribbean waters. The drama is a visual delight with the narrative like a shuttlecock, flitting around without much anchoring emotion. I have the patience to see what web Park Ji Eun is weaving but those wanting more emotional connection and background grist right off the bad will understandably be underwhelmed. I’m coming in from being disappointed with the previous dramas for both leads so this is a welcomed improvement for me. Especially with Lee Min Ho, finally he gets to at his age and suitable character style, I can’t say he’s ever going to recapture the raw charisma of Gu Jun Pyo but his deft conman presents his current charm to the fullest. The same goes for this upcoming Bazaar Korea pictorial, so much nnnnnggggg hotness I can’t even.
