After weeks for rumors and speculations, we finally have confirmation that Lee Min ho and Jun Ji Hyun will in fact be doing a drama together at the end of the year.
The drama is currently titled “The Legend of the Blue Sea.” and will air Wednesday/Thursday on SBS.
It will mark a return to the small screen for both actors after a 3 year hiatus.
The new series will be directed by Jin Hyuk, who previously worked with Lee Min Ho on “City Hunter”. It will be written by Park Ji-eun, the scriptwriter for “My Love from the Star,” in which Jun Ji Hyun played the female lead. This is rumored to be a fantasy romance drama based on a mermaid story from Korea’s first collection of unofficial historical tales.
The drama is already receiving enormous attention and selling at record breaking prices per episode.
This, without a doubt, will be one of the BIGGEST dramas this year. I am not looking forward to all the pre-drama PR as it tends to to always be overkill but I will definitely be patiently awaiting this one.
