Shin Hye Sun has just won the lottery….as in…she’ll be co-starring megastars Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun in the drama of the year “Legend of the Blue Sea”.
The actress is virtually unknown and had only small parts thus far on a weekday drama of this caliber. She is mostly known for her short stints on “Oh My Ghostess”,”She Was Pretty” and a weekend drama called “Five Kids”.
“Legend of the Blue Sea” is a fantasy romance between a con-artist (Lee Min Ho) and a mermaid (Jun Ji Hyun). Lee Hye Sun will play Lee Min Ho’s university friend who is now a researcher at a prestigious university. Her character is said to be smart, pretty and has a weak spot for the underdog. Lee Hee Joon was also already confirmed for the drama, and will play Lee Min Ho’s sidekick who speaks in a thick saturi accent, and will form a band of brothers with Lee Min Ho and and another comrade who has yet to be cast.
The drama is set to premier in November after “Incarnation Of Jealousy” finishes it’s run.
Stay tuned for more casting new on this…
