The Legend Of The Blue Sea will be back with episode 7 next Wednesday, December 7, at 10 pm KST on SBS. The sequel will continue to show Lee Min Ho's character Heo Joon-jae struggling to remember his relationship with mermaid Shim Chung.

The sixth episode of the Korean mini-series picked up right from where it left the lead characters in episode 5. It showed the silver-tailed mermaid admitted in hospital and the male lead scrambling to protect her from all the evil forces. He even used his conman skills to get her discharged from the hospital when the hospital authorities became sceptical about her superpowers.

In a flashback sequence, Kim Dam-ryeong's friend helped Se-hwa to hide inside a cave when the villagers tried to harm her. Later on, he got killed while running away from a group of armed men who were chasing him. Another death that was featured in the episode was that of Heo Gil-joong's personal assistant.

The Legend Of The Blue Sea episode 6 ended by showing the village head searching for his mermaid lover and Joon-jae trying to confirm if Shim Chung was the same person he met in Spain.

Since SBS is yet to release a trailer and teaser images for episode 7, there are no official details available about it. But a conversation between the onscreen couple towards the end of the sixth episode, wherein Jun Ji-hyun's character informs her lover that she cannot watch the first snow fall next year, indicates that they could part ways in the next episode.

Serial killer Ma Dae-young is already following Lee Min Ho's character as instructed by Kang Seo-hee. He even wants to get rid of the silver-tailed mermaid because she recognises him. Will he harm the female lead to hurt the conman?

Another question that is revolving around the viewers' mind is about the fate of Shim Chung as a mermaid since she fractured her legs in the car accident. It has already been revealed that the biggest weakness of a mermaid is her legs and if she hurt her legs she cannot go back to the ocean.

In order to find out what lies ahead for the onscreen couple in The Legend Of The Blue Sea episode 7, tune in to SBS on December 7 at 10 pm Korean time. Until then, watch the first six episodes of the period drama online here.
