At a first glance, it doesn’t look like a teaser for the upcoming SBS drama “The Legend of the Blue Sea,” but the released image is actually a fake magazine cover with cleverly hidden hints about the drama!
On the October 24 teaser, Lee Min Ho transforms into Heo Jun Jae, who is the cover model for the 11th edition of “Trickster” magazine. The magazine comes with the hashtags, “No one can fool me. Bad guy, strange guy, even more bad guy.” The words next to Lee Min Ho’s head read as, “Welcome, it’s your first time meeting a con artist with a Mensa membership right?” Then a following list of words seems to describe Heo Jun Jae’s many abilities and characteristics such as hypnosis, art, acting, neuroscience, good looks, and height. The descriptions continue with “A man who is hot from head to toe, Heo Jun Jae was born to be a con artist.”
The production team revealed their plans for the upcoming drama, saying, “We will be consecutively releasing images of Lee Min Ho who has perfectly transformed into genius conman Heo Jun Jae. In the released teaser, there are context clues about Heo Jun Jae, so you can compare them to the upcoming reveal of the story.”
“The Legend of the Blue Sea” tells the story of the last remaining mermaid who meets a con artist and learns to adapt to human life. The drama recently released their first video teaser, and the first episode airs on November 16, 10 p.m. KST. Watch it exclusively on Viki!
