The Legend of the Blue Sea Episode 15 Recap: Shim Chung Becomes Heo Joon Jae’s Instrument to Meet his Mother


In The Legend of the Blue Sea episode 15, Shim Chung (Jun Ji-Hyun) explained in her thoughts what could happen to her if Heo Joon Jae (Lee Min Ho) dies. That was why in episode 14 she did not want to promise that she’d go on living if he died.

Heo Joon Jae then concluded that he’d be reason that she’s going to die in the end. With this he had a dilemma of sending the mermaid back to the sea. But he showed her to the museum and made up a story of their past lives, which ended happily.

Meanwhile, Heo Joon Jae’s mother is visited by his stepmother in the pretext of seeing the owner of the house. But his mother revealed that she was the first wife that got kicked by the second one. Because of it, her employer offered her to stay there without having to work.

On the other hand Heo Joon Jae’s father already got out of the hospital. The new driver turned out to be Ma Dae Young.

At night, Cha Si-Ah asked Tae Oh to pick her up at the club. When Jo Nam Doo asked him where he’d go, he wanted to come along, so did Shim Chung. The three of them went there and met Cha Si-Ah, to the latter’s disappointment. Later, Heo Joon Jae was informed of his girlfriend’s whereabouts. He came after them and took Shim Chung out of the club, into the rain.

Meanwhile, Chi Hyeon talked to Chief Nam, the driver that was supposed to be killed by Ma Dae Young. He took the latter’s oxygen, which set off the alarm. However, Ma Dae Young got him out of trouble, and the driver lost his heartbeat when the doctors arrived.

Then Shim Chung met her friends, little Yoo Na and the homeless woman. She thought to have her own birthday party the next day. She even invited Heo Joon Jae’s mother to come.

She met his mother while her other visitors arrived at Heo Joon Jae’s home. Therefore, the last scene of The Legend of the Blue Sea episode 15 showed that he is about to meet his mother after a long time of searching for her.
