      See how the mermaid soaks up the male god

      "The Legend of the Blue Sea", the mermaid bubble male god chapter.

      Our fish (Shen Qing classmate) is not hypocritical. If he likes it, he will take the initiative to attack, and he will come directly and indirectly, making Xu Junzai hard to guard against. ?

      Yu Ye talks about chasing fish

      The first part of the legend of the blue sea, chasing the fish
      , Yu Yu Ye Tan

      was broadcast with another work written by Park Ji-eun. In the world of Korean dramas, there is a voice of listening to mermaid stories and watching mermaid dramas. I also got busy and faced so many sincere messages every day, so I fell into the usual routine of watching screenwriter Park’s works:

      Appreciation of literary works + textual research is

      obviously watching Korean...

      Good characters, great supporting roles

      Although get is not as good as the male protagonist, the female protagonist is really beautiful. She is so presumptuous that she feels like a great beauty attacking anything she wears. Even later, the male protagonist was always worried, and the female protagonist was kept in the dark again, making people anxious and depressed. It's really hard to understand the pair in ancient times. In fact, I really like the pair in ancient times. The elegant mermaid who has not been deep in the world and...

      "The Legend of the Blue Sea", the TV series that surprised me the most this year

      At first, I didn't want to watch "The Legend of the Blue Sea", because I didn't like the mermaid material, I felt that this theme was going to be bad, and it was too difficult to innovate.

      But the blue ocean really gave me a big surprise. First of all, let's not talk about the appearance, the combination of gods and goddesses. Secondly, the storyline is super good. Instead of having to save the prince from a mermaid in the past, the prince finally rescued the mermaid once....

      Hee hee, "Lee Min Ho" was named the strongest narcissist in history?

      Haha, is this the strongest narcissist in history? After watching "Blue Ocean", if it is estimated to be more narcissistic, it must be him. ?

          It turned out to be from ancient times to the present, unshakable, narcissistic attributes,

      Standing out from the crowd, supreme, Jin County magistrate blows himself up, and he really uses a good idiom. ?Niu?

      Not to brag, not to be black, obviously very cute and very Su ah This drama, and the male and female protagonists are both good looking and acting, the downside is that the screenwriter's brain is not big enough, but why are so many people targeting Lee Min...

      The male protagonist has insufficient connotation and is superficial, like a complex of dramas such as "Shen Xia" + "Now You See Me". Goddess Quan's temperament and acting skills are really good. There is no one who can interpret the cuteness and beauty of the little mermaid so girlishly. Even though the two of them have joined forces for good looks, but the plot routine is too...

      Lee Min Ho has undergone a complete transformation. He is so refined in ancient times and so slick and frivolous in modern times. The tone of the bad guy's speech and every little expression are different. awesome! There are also those who complain about the plot. I think this show is a magical love. It's not bad and it's not shocking. Will everyone be asking too much... The production level of this show is similar to that of American...
