Yea! It looks like this is really happening! Jun Ji Hyun (My Love from Another Star) and Lee Min Ho (Heirs) have confirmed starring in the new SBS drama Legend of the Blue Sea. Legend of the Blue Sea is a romantic comedy that will be based on the classic Korean folktale, Eou’s Unofficial Histories, about a mermaid. It comes from Park Ji Eun, the writer of My Love from Another Star and Producer.
So I’m pretty excited about this! This is one of those projects that is pretty much guaranteed to be a megahit. These two star actors paired with this writer has already caused the anticipation to be sky high. Apparently, China is also pretty excited with reports stating that the price of purchasing the licensing rights has already broken the record recently set by Descendants of the Sun.
This will likely be Lee Min Ho’s final drama before enlisting in the military, and it looks like a perfect send off. And pairing him with Jun Ji Hyun should make for quite a fun couple. This is going to be big, so prepare to keep hearing a lot about it for the rest of the year!
Legend of the Blue Sea is looking to air in October on SBS.
