The drama is a fantasy romance centered around a motif from a mermaid story found in Korea’s first historical (romance) storybook. Jun Ji Hyun plays the last mermaid in the world who steps foot into a city for the first time and Lee Min Ho plays a genius conman.
This marks Lee Minho’s first drama in three years, since “Heirs,” which aired in 2013.
He opens up about his role, saying, “I’m nervous and excited to see how everyone will respond to it. I get to act out two roles on ‘The Legend of the Blue Sea,’ including one as a conman and so I’ll be able to show many diverse sides to me. Please look forward to seeing them.”
The drama released its first teaser yesterday, which shows gorgeous scenery images as well as dropping hints about the two roles played by Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun.
“The Legend of the Blue Sea” will air its first episode on November 16 and will be available exclusively on Viki!
