Is 'The Legend of the Blue Sea' the next big hit? It sure seems to be because the new SBS drama is setting records already!


On November 15, the highly anticipated new, fantasy romance starring Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun aired its first episode. The humorous first encounter between the majestic mermaid and the brilliant forger managed to capture viewers' attentions, resulting in numerous positive reviews.


'The Legend of the Blue Sea' also did exceedingly well in viewer ratings. The first episode hit two digits right away, recording 16.4% according to calculations by Nielsen Korea. This is 2% higher than 'Descendants of the Sun's viewer ratings for its first episode, which recorded 14.3%. Meanwhile, new KBS drama 'Oh My Geum Bi', and MBC drama 'Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo' recorded 5.9% and 3.3% respectively, on November 15. 


Many are expecting 'The Legend of the Blue Sea' to bring forth another drama syndrome similar to 'DOTS'. 


Did you catch the first episode?

I think its due to LMH. Im starved for his movie appearance having gorged myself over ALL his previous movies. The only reason I even logged on to this movie is LMH even though the idea of a mermaid story sounds corny. And the first ep didnt let me down

Omg i loved the first episode. I just really love the bith lead actors and that there seems to be a previous history between them >.< Can't wait for more!

Let's hope it's going to be good. From what I've seen, it's a mediocre drama with a star-studded cast.

I knew that this drama would become a big hit as soon as it was released because of the cast

Yeah Scarlet Heart Ryeo is awsome & the lead chemistry is bamm!!!! But I couldn't understand why people dislike it.

I think,mostly koreans , was very popular overseas , but still I can't understand koreans , I love Scarlet is really amazing and beautiful drama

A good to watch but for me DOTS is one of a kind the best ever kdrama..... The story line of LTBS is common here in Philippines unlike DOTS is one of kdrama that would you never get enough with, plus the two lead actors the songsong couple thier chemistry is unbeatable.....the rating is just a number but on my opinion DOTS the best!

... wasn't that good tho

starempress Thursday, November 17, 2016

I've seen many dramas start high and level off REAL quickly... I'll be impressed when this drama manages to pass DotS's 40%
