Blockbuster K-Drama ‘Legend of the Blue Sea’ to Premiere on 17 November!

By Flora  /  10 Nov 2016 (Thursday)

Starring two of Korean television A-listers - Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun, the highly anticipated blockbuster series ‘Legend of the Blue Sea’ will dazzle viewers this November on channel ONE.

Helmed by renowned screenwriter Park Ji Eun (My Love from the Star) and acclaimed director Jin Hyuk (The Master’s Sun, City Hunter), the 20-episode drama is also seen as the highly anticipated comeback drama for both its leading stars. The series marks Lee Min Ho’s return to the small screen after three years, and it is the first drama for new mum Jun Ji Hyun, who gave birth to a baby boy earlier this year in February. 

The series tells the tale of the centuries-spanning love of the world’s last mermaid and the man who has saved her.  In the present day, Lee Min Ho plays a genius conman, and hilarity ensues when he crosses paths with Jun Ji Hyun’s mermaid character as she attempts to adjust to life on land.
