Surplus Princess (The Mermaid) Episodes 1 - 7 Review

Hello fellow drama fans!

I know it's been *literally* forever since I've written on this blog. Don't worry, though, I've been watching Kdramas continuously even though I haven't been writing about it lately.

Right now I'm watching It's Okay, That's Love, Triangle, You're All Surrounded, and Surplus Princess which is the drama I'm here to discuss with you all. It's a bit eccentric, a lot cute, and exactly the type of drama I love. If you like comedy, romance, magic, and colorful sets and fashion, then I recommend this drama to you.

I know the big question we're all dying to find out the answer to is whether Kim Ha Ni (Jo Bo Ah from Shut Up Flower Boy Band) will end up with the apple bottomed Kwon Shi Kyung (Song Jae Rim) or the adorable unemployed Lee Hyun Myung (Oh Joo Wan).

Here's where I stand: TEAM HYUN MYUNG! 100%. I know that Song Jae Rim is about twice as hot, and Shi Kyung is obviously the more attractive candidate because he's a successful chef, but Ha Ni is looking for pure, true love not sex. Hyun Myung's past relationship is proof that he can give his all to a girl that he loves, and I feel the chemistry between him and Ha Ni.

I'm not sure where this will leave Shi Kyung. He suffers from the strange illness of not remembering people's faces (cough Nice Guy cough), but it's seems more inconvenient than debilitating in his case. I think that Ha Ni could make him laugh and open him up to have more fun, but maybe he needs more of a serious life partner. I'm not suggesting that he gets with Hyun Myung's gold-digging ex, but, if she can learn to look beyond money and power, then maybe there could be something between them.
Also, you know I love that Kim Seul Gi is in this show. She's so spunky and awesome. I still remember the first time she came on screen in Flower Boy Next Door with those bags under her eyes and her screaming fits. I am so glad she's getting ample screen time in this drama. is diligently subbing episode 8, and I hope to watch it tonight!


  1. It's also available on! <3 I love this drama so much, but I don't know how I feel about Ha Ni getting with the guys. I think the show is setting us up for the couple you support, but once in a while I wish they'd surprise us...

    1. You never know. I saw a discussion in the comment section of Viki. Someone saw a TVn chart that showed a one-sided love from Hyun Myung to Ha Ni, but a two-sided love between Shi Kyung and Ha Ni. I'm not sure if that's just as of now or the overall relationship arc. We shall see!
