Set in the 17th Century, Jang Beo-jin (Seo Woo) is a young female diver on Tamra Island. She doesn't particularly enjoy her situation and dreams of one day leaving the island. One day, to her shock, she discovers a young blond haired man laying on the beach. The young man's name is William (Pierre Deporte) and he is a shipwrecked British citizen. Another young man named Park Kyu enters the island under the disguise of one of the many convicts sent to Tamra Island. In actuality, Park Kyu (Lim Ju-Hwan) is a budding government official known as a Seonbi. These three young people then become involved in a hilarious love triangle.
- "Tamra Island" or "Tamra-do" is an earlier name for the South Korean island now known as Jeju Island.
- Beo-jin works as a female diver, commonly known in South Korea as "haenyo" (literally "sea women"). The 2004 South Korean film "My Mother the Mermaid" covers this line of work in detail.
- Actress Seo Woo could not swim prior to landing the role of Beo-jin Jang. She then trained intensively for three months to play the role of a haenyo. 
- Due to low vierwship ratings (5% weekly average) 'Tamra, the Island" was cut from 20 episodes to 16 episodes.  In response to shortening the series, fans of the television show took out an advertisement in "Hangyerye Newspaper" (한겨레신문) in protest.
