theqoo:  Legend of the Blue Sea's similar set up to 'Splash' 

-Park Ji Eun's just stealing everything

-She did it again

-Isn't it a remake at this point? ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

-If you were gonna copy, you could've at least made your version interesting

-I'm not even surprised anymore ㅋㅋㅋ

-1. It's a common story, 2. It's an homage, 3. A parody. Which one is it, writer? ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
