As far as I recollect Jeon Ji Hyun‘s top actress success has come without having done a sageuk role in either television or movies. She plays edgy spunky in iconic roles that some only see her ability in that temperament but I like her more when she’s understated and quietly broody. Her mermaid Shim Chung in Legend of the Blue Sea is so far a billion times more fascinating back in the Joseon era, watching her grow up through the child actors and venturing on land as an adult to seek out Lee Min Ho‘s magistrate. His magistrate is also more interesting, I can’t wait for him to fall for her again and remember their childhood romance. The new stills from the drama show them reuniting and spending time together, I can watch their slow burn chemistry any day.
