Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun, who flew to Spain last week to film for the upcoming SBS drama “Legend of the Blue Sea,” hit the front page of a local newspaper, which features a photo (below) of Lee Min Ho kicking the daylights out of three pursuers.
The paper also got two photos from the set of the drama, giving us our first glimpse into the drama.
“Legend of the Blue Sea” is a fantasy romance centered around a motif from the mermaid/merman story in Korea’s first historical (romance) storybook. In the Joseon-era storybook, it is recorded that real-life figure Kim Dam Nyeong returned mermaids/mermen that were caught by fishermen back to the sea. Jun Ji Hyun plays a mermaid, and Lee Min Ho a cold con artist.
