Scam artist Lee Min Ho and Mermaid Jun Ji Hyun are getting me all excited for upcoming fantasy drama Legend of the Blue Sea. This teaser is a visual delight and we get a glimpse at the upcoming story. Which I appreciate since before this all I knew about this drama is that it is Mermaid themed. That and Lee Min Ho…… to be honest, they pretty much had me at Lee Min Ho.
** SYNOPSIS: Inspired by a classic Joseon legend from Korea’s first collection of unofficial historical tales, about a fisherman who captures and releases a mermaid, this drama tells the love story between the son of a noble family in Joseon era named Dam-lim (Lee Min H0) and a mermaid named Shim Chung ( Jeon Ji Hyeon).
From what I surmise from this very quick teaser is that we will have two time periods beginning in the historical Joseon and switching to modern times. Also, our mermaid will become humanesque at some point. I will wait to make more observations for when we get a longer teaser, but so far I say we are off to an interesting start.
Legend of the Blue Sea begins airing on November 16th on SBS.
