TV welcomes the Lee Min Ho new drama back into its timeslots. ?Along for the ride is the very famous comedic leading lady, Jun Ji Hyun. Together for the first time, these two are guaranteed to produce a new hit with the Legend of the Blue Sea.
SBS aired its pilot episode last night and fans are going crazy with the chemistry of these veteran rom-com actors. Jun Ji Hyun (Shim Chung), who plays a mermaid from the Joseon era, somehow finds herself in this modern day time. Her take on her role is alluring and hilarious just like her character in My Sassy Girl and My Love From Another Star. Lee Min Ho (Joon Jae), on the other hand, plays a con-man who is after an ancient bracelet that Ji Hyun?s character possesses. Min Ho tries to charm Ji Hyun to get what he wants, but soon falls for her?
Episode one just gave us an amazing start. If you?re about to watch it, for sure you?ll get the same feeling of ?why does it have to be just one hour?? or ?why can?t episode two air sooner??
Jun Ji Hyun As A Mermaid
Playing the of role Shim Chung must have really been hard and took a lot of effort from Ji Hyun. One, being that she had to swim really deep and hold her breath for a very long time; and two portraying a character in episode one that does not know how to speak. We?re pretty confident that everyone also believes she did a very good job at doing both.
Ji Hyun?s mermaid costume was very pretty, sparkly and ethereal like an Elie Saab couture creation. It was like no other mermaid costume we have seen before. The Mediterranean setting is just perfect to set the mood for this fantasy, romance-comedy.
