Jeon Ji-hyun, Lee Min-ho team up in new SBS drama Legend of the Blue Sea


It’s happening, it’s really happening: Jeon Ji-hyun is re-teaming with her You From Another Star writer, Park Ji-eun, for a new drama co-starring Lee Min-ho (Heirs), with a high likelihood of him reuniting with his City Hunter director, PD Jin Hyuk. Is China even going to be able to handle the excitement? I half expect the country to sell out of every single thing featured in the drama within its first week.

Famous for its Legend of the Blue Sea scenes!


Alii! Welcome to this small island country in the Pacific Ocean (with a population of 18 000 people) is a haven for diving and beaches. Spend a day snorkeling, swimming or kayaking in the aquamarine waters of the UNESCO World heritage Rock Islands.



If you're in need of a natural mud bath, head over to the Milky Way for a calcium carbonate bath which is said to be therapeutic.


For a bit of culture, why not visit the second most populous city with 3000 people, Airai. There you can visit a Palauan men’s meeting house, a so-called Bai.



The Ngardmau Falls are a great destination if you're into hiking.


Palau is famous for its seafood. Palauan culinary tradition is also deeply rooted in the use of Pacific island staples such as taro, pandan, yams and pumpkin. For dessert fresh tropical fruits are a must!


Why not try the local delicacy, ukaeb, crab meat in coconut sauce?

Jun Ji Hyun And Lee Min Ho Finally Officially Confirmed For “My Love From The Star” Writer’s New SBS Drama


Actors Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun have officially confirmed their appearance in writer Park Ji Eun’s new drama.

Although news has been coming out as if it was confirmed previously, it was mostly from the mouths of industry insiders. Now there is actual confirmation from the drama’s production company, as well as a schedule and broadcasting station.

The drama, with the working title “Legend of the Blue Sea,” will star Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun, airing on SBS, Wednesdays and Thursdays, starting in November. It is slated to premiere after the end of “Incarnation of Envy.” The drama is a fantasy romance, taking its motif from the mermaid/merman story in Korea’s first historical (romance) storybook. In the Joseon-era storybook, it is recorded that real-life figure Kim Dam Nyeong returned mermaids/mermen that were caught fisherman back to the sea.

Writer Park Ji Eun previously wrote the hit drama “My Love From My Star,” which also starred Jun Ji Hyun, working alongside Kim Soo Hyun. The director of the new drama is Jin Hyuk, who has worked with Lee Min Ho in the past on “City Hunter.”

The production company, Culture Depot, stated, “From the beginning stages, writer Park Ji Eun created characters matching Jun Ji Hyun and Lee Min Ho, thinking of them as the best couple. The lead actors also decided to work on the drama because they believe in the writer and the director. You can look forward to their chemistry, which will be beyond one’s imagination.”

Lee Min-ho, Jun Ji-hyun to star together in upcoming drama

(Bhc, MYM Entertainment)
SBS drama from 2013 “My Love from the Star” set new and bold standards for its onscreen successors. On Monday, industry associates confirmed the writer of the pan-Asian hit, scriptwriter Park Ji-eun, has chosen actor Lee Min-ho and actress Jun Ji-hyun to star as the main leads of her forthcoming project, “The Legend of the Blue Sea.”

The associates added that the two top-tier celebrities have confirmed their roles since receiving information on the synopsis of the TV drama. 

“The Legend of the Blue Sea” -- despite its current preproduction status -- is already receiving overwhelming, yet lucrative attention from Chinese media platforms battling to clinch its distribution rights. It has been reported that one media agency has offered to bid approximately 590 million won ($495,000) per episode, and the production company expects more bidders in the near future.

Many industry insiders are assuming if the deal is successfully inked, it will break the record distributing price of this year’s mega hallyu hit, KBS2’s “Descendants of the Sun.” 

The project will mark Jun’s return to the industry after taking a hiatus to have a child, as well as Lee’s return to TV screens after three years. 

“The Legend of the Blue Sea” is to be an adaptation of Danish author Hans Christian Andersen’s most prized fairy tale, “The Little Mermaid.” More details on the project will be revealed soon.

Jeon Ji-hyeon and Lee Min-ho confirmed for writer Park Ji-eun's new drama, 'The Legend of the Blue Sea'

Jeon Ji-hyeon and Lee Min-ho together are returning to the small screen through writer Park Ji-eun's new drama.

On May 20, SBS has announced, "Jeon Ji-hyeon and Lee Min-ho will play the leading roles in 'The Legend of the Blue Sea' (working title) slated for November this year".

'The Legend of the Blue Sea' is a drama that borrowed motifs from 'The Little Mermaid' written by Hans Christian Andersen. The drama is drawing attention for being a new drama by writer Park Ji-eun, who wrote "My Love from the Star".

It has been known that, from the early stage of planning to write 'The Legend of the Blue Sea', writer Park Ji-eunalready had Jeon Ji-hyeon and Lee Min-ho in her mind.

Jeon Ji-hyeon is returning since she gave birth in February this year and also this is her comeback drama in two years since "My Love from the Star" by writer Park Ji-eun.

Lee Min-ho also is returning to the small screen in three years since "The Heirs".

Meanwhile, it is also known that 'The Legend of the Blue Sea' has been offered half million dollars per episode from a video streaming company in China. This proves how powerful the effect of two actors could be.

eonnie @ilwoo_aein Thank you for creating this thread, really happy to meet you in here...... i will just paste my previous post on LMH page, this drama is very worth anticipated... beside all this year dramas are a great comeback... this year drama also set new record in dramaland... 

in term of price per episode sold by the rights owner... this year DOTS break the record by, they sold nearly $270.000 per episode to China and Japan (some source said Japan buy it at $100.000), but that set a new record that time while Fated to love you sold $120.000 per episode, and JJH last drama my love from another star sold at $ 35.000 - $40.000 per episode, and LMH previous drama was sold $30.000 per episiode, three days was sold at $50.000 per episode and doctor stranger sold at $80.000 per episode.

and $500.000 per episode that really set a new bar in dramaland. 

I am, personally, satisfied with writer my love from another star and city hunter director, this drama adapted from "The little mermaid" by Hans Christian Andersen so will it be a sad melodrama or a warm melodrama i don't care I will just enjoy the ride because the beginning already make me excited.

I once read that this drama will be half pre-produced so is that mean that when the first episode air, they already completed half of the full total episodes shoot... so they also will observe the viewers reaction on wrapping the ending... that's fair.... 

happy waiting dear chinggus...let's anticipate it...
