Jun Ji Hyun
Aside from the actors, many are also excited for the SBS series because of its female protagonist, Jun Ji Hyun. The 35-year-old will play the lead role of a mermaid who will fall for Min Ho?s two characters.
The actress is best known for starring in the highly popular movie My Sassy Girl with Cha Tae Hyun. Fans of the classic 2001 film are excited since the two will reportedly have a reunion after 15 years.
This is because of an announcement that Tae Hyun will have a cameo in Legend of the Blue Sea Korean drama.
While many are looking forward to the fantasy series, rumors are rife that Min Ho?s girlfriend has issues with the show.
Suzy Bae, who has been dating the Hallyu heartthrob since 2015, is allegedly jealous of Ji Hyun. This is because of how the two lead stars have gotten so close to each other while making the series.
The claims surfaced when international media and fans began releasing photos online. Many showed Min Ho and Ji Hyun looking cozy with each other while filming scenes in Barcelona, Spain.
