The entire production for “Legend of the Blue Sea” is back on home turf in Korea, after filming for over a month in exotic locations all over Europe. The cast showed up to a table reading on October 8th and we finally have some photos.

The drama is a fantasy romance between a fisherman/con-artist(Lee Min Ho) and a mermaid (Jun Ji Hyun). The story is based on one of Korea’s first romance storybooks. The book tells a tale about a real life fisherman names Kim Dam Nyeong, who set a mermaid free after she was caught by fishermen.

The drama travels back and forth between past and present day, so I am curious if he is rocking the hairdo for the old or new version of himself. I don’t know if I am liking the new look, but I will say that I won’t have him confused with any other recent roles because of it.

“Legend” will premier on November 16th on SBS to a much awaiting audience.
