@meechuttso thank you for sharing this news :))

Is Shin Hye Sun gonna act as the second female role?! 

So we are gonna have a scientist in the drama. :)) It sounds refreshing in Kdrama. At some point in the drama, maybee she is probably gonna catch our mermaid Gianna Jun for her research and keep in the lab. But then Lee Min Ho is gonna rescue her. :) 

 

LMH fangirl? Did you know his name Min-ho, sounds alot like Min-uh, which is a type of fish in korean? I think this drama is his destiny. Watch out for Shin Hye-sun. She has a habit of stealing hearts of men in every drama (see the articles in her thread). I hope she plays an evil scientist role.

Shin Hye-sun follows Five Kids with Legend of the Blue Sea

shinhyesun-1.jpg


We’ve got another addition to the SBS buzz project Legend of the Blue Sea, otherwise known as “That Jeon Ji-hyun and Lee Min-ho Show, Brought to You by the City Hunter Director and You From Another Star Writer.” Sold, sold, sold, and sold. I’m sure there’s a plot and everything, but there’s so much star power there that the hype is expected, inevitable, and perhaps even justified.


With mega-star headliners Jeon Ji-hyun and Lee Min-ho in place, casting is continuing on to supporting players, with Lee Hee-joon (Yoo-na’s Street) recently being added and now Shin Hye-sun as well. Shin had small supporting roles in Oh My Ghostess (as the hero’s sweet wheelchair-bound sister) and She Was Pretty (as a cute and materialistic magazine writer), but it’s really her current role in KBS’s weekend drama Five Kids that’s given her a surge of popularity, thanks to her crowd-pleaser of a romance with Sung Hoon.

Legend of the Blue Sea will be a fantasy romance that is inspired by a folktale of a mermaid who was caught by a fisherman and the governor who returned her to the sea. The drama will take elements of the original Joseon-era tale and set it in modern-day Korea, with Jeon Ji-hyun playing a mermaid who comes to the city, where she meets “the wickedest con artist around” (Lee Min-ho) and ends up falling in love with him. Hm, I knew he was a con artist, but the wickedest-on-earth descriptor is new and interesting — I’m used to seeing Lee Min-ho playing reserved or aloof, but I’m not used to con artist charisma or blatant charm from him. It’d be a nice change of pace, and I’m intrigued.

Lee Hee-joon is set to play another con artist who initially guides Lee Min-ho, while Shin Hye-sun will play Lee Min-ho’s university hoobae who’s now a researcher at KAIST (Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology). The character is pretty, smart, and logical, and displays a lot of affection for weak and powerless people and animals. Does that extend to people-animals like mermaids who steal away her sunbae’s heart?

Shin Hye-sun will start work on Legend of the Blue Sea immediately after wrapping up work on Five Kids. This will be a Wednesday-Thursday drama premiering in November, which follows Gong Hyo-jin and Jo Jung-seok’s Jealousy Incarnate, which follows Wanted.

Hi dear all! :))

I hope you are doing good. I have a question.

As you know this drama is gonna be based on the story of "Eou Yadam". Does anyone have any information about this folktale?! I know it is about mermaid and a magistrate who release the mermaid back into sea. But does anyone know translated source? I tried to google but nothing special.

Tnx :))

Moon Sori added to fantasy romance Legend of the Blue Sea

by chickachunga | August 8, 2016 | 1 Comment

MoonSori1.jpg

As if the Jeon Ji-hyun and Lee Min-ho vehicle were lacking in A-list wattage, acclaimed film actress Moon Sori will be taking a supporting role in Legend of the Blue Sea, joining Shin Hye-sun (Five Kids) and Lee Hee-joon (Yoo-na’s Street). Her role is described simply as that of a “rich wife of Daechi-dong,” an upscale neighborhood of Gangnam district.

 

This would be her first drama project in three years, and what a project to come back to! Moon had a small albeit unforgettable role in Park Chan-wook’s period drama-revenge thriller Agasshi, which captivated audiences at Cannes this year. Her last TV project was the 2013 MBC drama special Haneuljae’s Murder, but she hasn’t been in a full-length drama since 2008’s Golden Age of My Life.

The hype continues to mount for Legend of the Blue Sea written by My Love from Another Star scribe Park Ji-eun, with City Hunter PD Jin Hyuk signed on to direct. Based on a mermaid story from Korea’s earliest collection of folktales, but set in modern-day Korea, Jeon Ji-hyun will play the mermaid opposite Lee Min-ho’s con artist. Park had the two charismatic leads in mind while writing the story so here’s to hoping there’s more than enough fodder for amazing performances all around, on land and sea.

Legend of the Blue Sea will be a Wednesday-Thursday drama premiering in November on SBS, the follow-up to rom-com Jealousy Incarnate starring Gong Hyo-jin and Jo Jung-seok.

Lee Ji-hoon as Lee Min-ho’s half-brother in Legend of the Blue Sea

lee-ji-hoon-(1988)-5.jpg

 

And the star-studded lineup continues with the addition of hot rising actor Lee Ji-hoon (Mirror of the Witch), who just confirmed his role in SBS’s fantasy-romance series Legend of the Blue Sea.

He is set to play Heo Chi-hyun, the half-brother to Lee Min-ho’s Heo Joon-jae; he’s the hardworking son who dutifully stayed by his father’s side after his brother Joon-jae left home. Described as being a “cold-hearted fellow,” Lee will hopefully shine in this role, as he has in his recent work.


Lee Ji-hoon made his drama debut in School 2013 with subsequent supporting roles in You’re the Best, Lee Soon Shin and Six Flying Dragons, among others. He most recently touched the hearts of viewers with his stirring portrayal of King Seonjo in JTBC’s Mirror of the Witch. His impressive range was on full display as a young monarch struggling to lead his country while fighting emotional and physical calamities.

Fantasy-romance drama Legend of the Blue Sea is writer Park Ji-eun’s hotly anticipated follow-up to her smash hit My Love from Another Star. It is based on an early Korean mermaid folktale about a fisherman — who actually existed in real life! — and the mermaid he sent back into the sea. Jeon Ji-hyun and Lee Min-ho are the main leads.

Is the amount of star power to your fancy yet?

Legend of the Blue Sea will premiere in November on SBS, right after Jealousy Incarnate.

Our sweet boy is gonna have a donseng right? :)) how cute! I think it is the first time that oppa is going to have a younger sibling. In "Heirs" Kim Tan is the one who loves his hyun and is kind-hearted. But his older brother doesn't show any affection. I guess in this drama, Hoe Joon Jae  and his donseng both may have some resentement toward each other. I am reallyyy looking forward to seeing this drama. Because LMH oppa role is Veryyy different than before. A con artist is awesome! :)) He must be smart, smooth talker and blatant. I hope oppa is going to have bangs down like City Hunter again :))) But I don't think hd is gonn have bangs on forehead.

I wonder like@Kris Silva if they have started filming.  You'd think we'd have some photos of the actors and actresses entering SBS or whatever building for the script reading.  JJH fans, do you all have any news?  I would really like to see LMH and JJH together, not photos, but physically.

@nika94:  You like LMH with the City Hunter hair?  Of all his dramas, it's probably my least favorite hairstyle.  I even like GJP's hair better!  lol I digress. Originally, I was going to say definitely bangs up, because he is just so gorgeous that you can't help but fall for his charms.  But now that I think about it again,  he tends to look very boyish and innocent  with his bangs down, so he could con someone with that look too.  I guess it depends who he is trying to con.  

I hope we get more info about the drama soon, so we can really start getting excited about the drama.
