      The Legend of the Blue Sea: Chasing the Fish
      Part 2 I Youth

      If the story is too real, the scenes and characters are true, and the credibility is too high, it will bring confusion: places and people are so real, will they really be like this? people and things? Such confusion often occurs when paying attention to Park Ji-eun's screenwriting works.

      After finishing the first one, the most interesting message I received is this one:

      Aunt laughs all the way

      How should I say it? Really, my aunt laughed. I watched it intermittently. Two days ago, I started watching it again. It took two days to complete the first brush. It's really exciting.

      Quan Zhixian is really my sister. Not to mention her good looks and her acting skills are really good. Among them, which ignorant and ignorant cute image just came to the land. I really want to have a daughter and want to marry her. She is really cute and also the cry. I don't forget to bring...

      About the past and present of the blue sea

      I watched "The Legend of the Blue Sea" during the weekend and holidays, and I fell into the pit.

      Prove at least:

      I am really busy this holiday!

      Unrefined, I can't resist the temptation of beautiful and handsome guys!

      Let me state in advance that I haven't written a drama review for a long time, so the following content is not a drama review, just while watching it, I will have scattered thoughts at the same time, and I feel that I have to code it. Although idol...

      How can there be any future in Japan?

      Joon Jae's mother is kind, so when her high school classmates who pretended to be poor came to her to sell insurance, she accepted and supported her with actions; Joon Jae's mother was also lofty, so she turned and left after knowing that her husband had an affair with her.

      She did nothing wrong, but she shouldn't have entrusted her son to another woman: that's your baby, how can you expect others to take good care of him? Therefore, you must work hard to protect your cherished...

      Movie reviews that don't discuss the plot

      As a logic controller, there are indeed many bugs in the plot, but I still want to give 5 stars, and it is rare to have the urge to comment after watching it. As someone who has not watched TV dramas for many years, the last time I watched a Korean drama should have been almost ten years ago. I started chasing the drama because I saw the Weibo clip, and after watching the first episode (or the second I can't remember), I decided not to give up the drama, because when Xu Junzai left Shen Qing...

      Although the ratings of the first broadcast are not bad, can this drama really stick to it? I give both stars to the camera, first-class camera, second-class director, third-class script, a good hand, and a poor play. . . After watching the ghost and adding one more star, at least this script can tell a good...

      Why do you criticize each other for such a subjective thing about aesthetics? I just watched it for Lee Min Ho. I also know that Jeon is beautiful and I like it very much. Every scene is amazingly beautiful, but Lee Min Ho is like a pig? No acting skills? This kind of comment really makes the fans very sad. I haven't seen Oppa on screen for a long time. I think he is handsome and plays a great role, otherwise how would you like to play this role...

      It's the same routine as "Star You", except that Professor Du's superpowers are given to Qian Songyi, and the completion rate is far less than that of the screenwriter's previous work. Compared with Kim Soo Hyun, Lee Min Ho's acting skills are almost hot. and why was my comment deleted?...
