FIRST IMPRESSION: Surplus Princess Episode 1


Another new drama, airing every Thursday, we have Surplus Princess – which is about a mermaid who wants to become human.

The first episode, was more comical than I expected – with English thrown here and there, and a little bit of animation. It’s kind of cool, in a way, and it was fun. I’m sad again because it only airs once a week 😦 It’s an 11pm slot drama – so expect a little bit more mature stuff.

I thought the first episode was pretty good – we were introduced to the main characters, a few mystery here and there and Lee Hyun Myung is so cute 🙂

Not a recap – just a discussion.

vlcsnap-2014-08-09-15h03m30s183vlcsnap-2014-08-09-15h03m54s160The episode started off with Kim Ha Ni (mermaid name – 18th princess, Aileen) standing at the shore and narrating that she’ll miss the happy times, and the people she loved and cared for. She then slowly disappeared and we see small little bubbles.

And she starts narrating the story from the beginning.

vlcsnap-2014-08-09-15h06m31s201She is staying in the share house as well – but looks like she’s not approachable. She’s Ahn Hye Young. We don’t know much about her yet – but I’m pretty sure she’s an important character too. And Kim Seul Gi looks so pretty!!!

He makes an effort to talk and smile, but the smile disappears the moment she leaves. vlcsnap-2014-08-09-15h08m07s131vlcsnap-2014-08-09-15h08m15s211vlcsnap-2014-08-09-15h08m21s19And all of a sudden his character felt a little creepy – as though he has a big secret.

vlcsnap-2014-08-09-15h07m00s230Ahn Ma Nyeo – he’s wanted for stealing the ‘magic potion’  – and though it’s not revealed yet, he’s most likely Hye Young’s father.

vlcsnap-2014-08-09-15h09m20s99vlcsnap-2014-08-09-15h09m36s255Ha Ni manages to grab the potion and drinks it, despite Ma Nyeo’s advice.


So mysterious characters are Shi Kyung and Hye Young. In the lift, he suddenly turns and looks at his own reflection and started messaging on his phone – it was sort of creepy. He’s cold and doesn’t communicate much, likes his work to be perfect, and…. he likes being praised. Hah. He was practically so happy when the girls were commenting how cool he was.

Hye Young – was she a mermaid??? She and Ma Nyeo are probably father and daughter, since they have the same family name, but if she was a mermaid…. then why is he a human? Maybe it was a love story between a human and a mermaid, and they gave birth to Hye Young??? Okay – I’m just assuming.

Ji Hye has lost interest in Hyun Myung. I don’t think she hates him, but she’s slowly wavering. She still cares about him – but her heart is already seeking someone else.

And awwwwwwwww….vlcsnap-2014-08-09-15h08m37s180Lee Hyun Myung is so adorable!!!!!

I love his character!!!! He’s like that honest, earnest character which will totally warm our hearts. AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. SO CUTE.

Anyway, Ha Ni has turned into a human, and I guess things will get more fun from next week~!!! WEEEEE!!!!!!!


(I sort off whip this post up in a lazy mood – so don’t mind me. Hahahaha. )
