After releasing video teaser and posters two weeks ago, makers of “The Legend of the Blue Sea” released more stills of Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun on set.
The released photo stills show the first meeting of the genius conman (Lee Min Ho) and the mermaid (Jun Ji Hyun).
In the images, Jun Ji Hyun is seen guarding herself against Lee Min Ho with a serious expression and food all over her face.
“The mermaid attacks Joon Jae (Lee Min Ho’s character) upon their first meeting. Starting from their strange first meeting, the two will continue to be in interesting and tense situations,” a production staff said about the scene.
Moreover, SBS released the second official trailer for the highly anticipated drama “Legend of Blue Sea,” on Tuesday.
Unlike the first trailer, which had a long lost romance vibe, the second trailer showed off the comedic side to the drama.
In the new preview, mermaid Jun Ji Hyun’s fins have disappeared, and she’s spotted intruding into Lee Min Ho’s house, taking his food and clothes.
Meanwhile, actor Lee Min Ho has revealed he is anxious about his new drama.
“I’m nervous and excited to see how everyone will respond to it. I get to act out two roles on “Legend of the Blue Sea”, including one as a conman, and so I’ll be able to show diverse sides,” said Lee Min-ho, according to a report by Soompi.
“The Legend of the Blue Sea” is a fantasy romance drama that borrowed motifs from a mermaid story found in a book called ‘Eaou Yadam’, a collection of folk tales. According to the folk tale, Kim Dam-ryung, a magistrate in Hyupgok, released a mermaid caught by a fisherman back to the sea. The drama will tell the story about the magistrate and the mermaid.
Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun’s “The Legend of the Blue Sea” will air its first episode on the 16th of November at 10PM on SBS.
