ONE HD is set to dazzle K-Drama fans this November with the new drama series, “The Legend of the Blue Sea” (푸른 바다의 전설), starring reigning king and queen of Korea Lee Min Ho (이민호) and Jun Ji Hyun (전지현).
“The Legend of the Blue Sea” is the highly anticipated comeback drama for both its leading stars as it marks Lee Min Ho’s return to the small screen after 3 years, his first television role since “The Heirs” (상속자들) in 2013.
In speaking about his new character, the actor revealed that he’s actually nervous about showing viewers his performance. “I’m nervous and excited to see how everyone will respond to it. I get to act out 2 roles on ‘The Legend of the Blue Sea,’ including one as a conman and so I’ll be able to show many diverse sides of myself to viewers. Please look forward to seeing them,” he said.
It is also the first drama for new mum Jun Ji Hyun, who gave birth to a baby boy earlier this year in February. It has all the makings of a hit drama and viewers will be truly captivated by its massive star power, an intriguing premise, and impressive cinematography.
The 20-episode drama is helmed by renowned writer Park Ji Eun (of “My Love from the Star” fame) and acclaimed director Jin Hyuk (“The Master’s Sun”, “City Hunter”).
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.
“The Legend of the Blue Sea” premieres on ONE HD on 17th November and airs every Thursday and Friday at 8:10pm, within 24 hours of its Korean telecast. It is available first and exclusively on ONE HD, Astro Ch. 393.
