I definitely have a soft spot for Legend of the Blue Sea, putting up with so much poor plotting and character development for the little bits that work. Right now I care about Joon Jae reuniting with his poor mom, and thank god the end of episode 15 got us right to that brink as long as there isn’t a truck of doom barreling towards them in that intersection. This week’s episodes 14 and 15 rose in ratings to break past 18% in episode 15, a positive sign as the drama heads into it’s final arc and things start to get revealed and hopefully resolved. I’m annoyed the baddies like the stepmother and now the stepbrother are so selfishly vile, but the cuties like puppy Tae Oh with his wordless crush on Shim Chung are just so endearing to watch even in limited quantities. Oh, and the OTP romance is still decent enough, even if I’m more convinced they love each other when they are alone and thinking of one another moreso than being together and generating chemistry.
