Even if screenwriter Park Ji Eun is basically copying the entire narrative structure of her own hit You From Another Star, last week’s episode 8 of Legend of the Blue Sea ended with the possibility of a breakthrough. There have been too many near misses where Joon Jae finds out Shim Chung is a mermaid so I’m all ready for him to know outright so that they can spend more time trying to decide how to be together.
New stills are out for Wednesday’s episode 9 showing Joon Jae cooking a home meal clearly for his loves to eat oddball Shim Chung. These food prep stills remind me so much of Kim Woo Bin with similar moments both in Heirs and in Uncontrollably Fond, and in general one aspect I did love about Heirs was the love-hate relationship between Lee Min Ho and Kim Woo Bin’s characters so this memory triggering visual makes me happy. The production also released a ton of new BTS pics of the full cast enjoying the filming experience.
