For the first time, Lee Min Ho will be playing a double role in the highly anticipated Legend of the Blue Sea that bridges the Joseon Kingdom and modern-day Korea. Find out more!
The production team is starting to drop more and more information about the new fantasy drama, and viewers’ interest is raised again in the latest revelation about Lee Min Ho’s new role in the story inspired by a classic Joseon legend about a fisherman who captures and releases a mermaid.
Lee Min Ho will play Kim Moon, a son from a noble family in the Joseon era, when the mermaid Shim Chung (Jeon Ji Hyun) is first captured and released. He will also play Heo Joon Jae, a modern-day con artist who scams under different disguises, such as a lawyer, doctor, businessman, and more. The production is promising that he will show off his comedic side through each of his disguises.
(I take it that we’ll also see fashionable looks for our handsome leading man, be it in Joseon or modern Korea.)
