Looks like the imminent ending of Legend of the Blue Sea is making everything finally come together, or else I’m just so ready for this drama to end that everything feels like it’s finally clicking. Whatever the reason, episode 19 of Legend was lovely to watch and the audiences felt the same way, with ratings jumping all the way back past 20% to hit a new series high of 21%. Too bad the wait for the final episode isn’t tomorrow and will come next Tuesday as the odd-even airing got messed up during the holidays.
It would have been nice to see how Joon Jae and Shim Chung could wrangle up a happy ending in this lifetime even with the villains put away, the whole she’s a mermaid and could die on land bit has always been more compelling than one-note greedy baddies. For those who love the drama and don’t want it to end, at least there’s now another week to savor all the goodies from episodes, and the highlight of romantic scenes from this series has got to be the ending episode from this episode 19. It was Lee Min Ho in his finest form with a just as reciprocating Jeon Ji Hyun. Now that is the chemistry that could’ve been since the very beginning.
