This drama is inspired by a classic Joseon legend. The production team flew to Palau to film the underwater scenes, they also flew to Spain in order to get some scenes.

Synopsis:

The mermaid Sim Cheong (Jun Ji-hyun) and Heo Joon-jae (Lee Min-ho) who is a clever swindler, meet not by a coincidence but fate. The story is juxtaposed with the parallel life of their Joseon era incarnations, the mermaid Se-hwa and the town head, Kim Dam-ryeong.

Eventually they fall in love and remembered the last life, the sad ending and all the people that were involved in that destiny together with them.  
The story of Dam-ryeong and Se-hwa is pretty long, she saved him when they were kids and since then they got together as friends and later developed strong love feelings, they went separated after grown up because of their differences but eventually they meet again after being adults. Again they retake that love and entangle together a fight against all the people who wanted to separate them, however the destiny of both were consumed by bad people. The love that they had was so bigger that they swore to love each other in the other life and reincarnate as the same (as mermaid and relevant man in the society). 

Dam-ryeong began to appear in Joon-jae´s dreams, and the reason is to make him remember what happened to him in the past as Dam-ryeong and  advice him to take care of the woman that he loves but can't remember.  After Joon-jae remembered everything he recognized the identity of the woman, as well as the people who wanted to hurt them and fought with everyone in order to change the first fatal destiny.
