Surplus Princess

Surplus Princess/ 잉여공주/ Ingyeo Gongjoo/ The Idle Mermaid/ The Mermaid *** (Korean)
10 episodes
Jo Bo Ah as Kim Ha Ni
Ohn Joo Wan as Lee Hyun Myung
Funny take on a rather old plot, complete with playful pokes of seemingly random reference. This one had me giggling from the first to the last episode. The acting was superb, in expressive zanyness, the hated bad guy, or even in the dour straight man. Well done all around! Favorite character: The 2nd mermaid.

A teenage mermaid, with a crush on a human tv chef saves him from a slip, then goes about trying to wrest a stolen bottle of fins to legs potion from the 2nd mermaid. before hearing the rules, she downs the batch and makes like fireworks for shore to meet the man of her dreams. after a bit of re-grounding, her 'uncle' takes her to a shared housing for work potentials. There she attempts to make her way into a job at the building that her target heartthrob works at... a famous food corporation. the path is not without its speed bumps and distractions though, some of which just might leave her exposed and all wet on the ground before her time is up.
