It’s farewell time for the other high profile K-drama currently airing, after Goblin signed off last weekend it will be curtains this Wednesday as Legend of the Blue Sea airs the final episode 20. The drama never lived up to it’s creative premise as a K-drama take on The Little Mermaid tale, turning it into the currently popular idea of reincarnation and love living through multiple lifetimes but never delivering narratively on fleshing out the concepts beyond superficially. It was still a relative ratings hit, with recent episodes finally breaking 20% ratings but never got the broader buzz that it ought to with big name leads Lee Min Ho and Jeon Ji Hyun onboard. Episode 19 was one of my favorite episodes to date, bringing things nicely together at last and giving the catharsis of the bad guys getting their due. The preview is out for episode 20, with separation and reunion on the horizon.
