I don’t know if I’m the only one fascinated by how realistically beautifully the mermaid swimming scenes are in Legend of the Blue Sea. If anything it shows the commitment of the director in creating the most enchanting shots coupled with how game leading lady Jeon Ji Hyun is in swimming in waters both salty and saline. The BTS is out showing how the mermaid in the ocean scenes are captured and the crew really did make the most of its overseas shoot in Spain.
Jeon Ji Hyun spends her mermaid scenes wearing a genuine mermaid tail albeit a green screen and CGI rigged one that allows the golden scales overlay to be added later, but she really is swimming with her legs in a tail suit so immense kudos to her for making it look effortless and beautiful. She definitely reaffirms her reputation for being the goddess goals for all women, and does so with hard work that’s indisputable and super commendable.
