Lee Min-ho is suited up and in disguise for Legend of the Blue Sea

More Lee Min-ho stills for Legend of the Blue Sea! You won’t hear me complaining, since I think this is the best he’s looked in… I can’t even remember. Years, definitely. (And it’s not just even about the welcome departure from the ugly sweater brigade, although that certainly helps.)

In the first trio of stills, Lee Min-ho is in character as con artist Heo Joon-jae, who’s currently in the middle of impersonating a prosecutor. For what reason, we don’t know, although we can rest assured he’s being an ethical scam artist… whatever that means. (He’s purportedly brilliant at fooling people, but doesn’t take advantage of those who are already disadvantaged.)

We’ve yet to hear how he meets or relates to the heroine of the drama, Jeon Ji-hyun, who plays the last mermaid on Earth, though they’ll meet as she arrives in the big city and figures out how to make her way in the human world. Something tells me that no matter how much of a genius he is at disguises, he ain’t got nothin’ on her.

The bottom three stills come from the drama’s Spain shoots, which spanned two months over the summer; the production is now back and running in Korea as the drama gears up for its November 16 premiere. It’ll air as a Wednesday-Thursday drama on SBS.

Holy molly,

I would have to agree with you, while he is usually not my cup of tea . He really does look very manly and mature.

I personally love him in Faith. But even then I was more enamored with the character than the actor.

he IS looking the best he's looked in years. even i admit it, and i'm someone who firmly believes he looks quite different from BOF/personal taste days (so handsome!!), and i don't attribute it to aging either. he looked different starting from city hunter, though it was a subtle change.

right around heirs he started looking really different—and his fashion/styling there also left much to be desired and didn't do him any favors.

but here i'm so digging the classy, easy suits and the dark hair! he looks crazy good. whoever released those stills from the script read? he looked so strange in those pictures that i was taken aback. but here, love everything about his look.

I thought I was the only one that felt he started to look different starting from City Hunter! I've been dying for the longest to put my finger on it. I used to think it was his hair but maybe it's a weight thing? Because he's been looking pretty slim in these past couple stills.

Anyway he does look great & healthy & I'm happy to see it. Excited for this.

It's his nose. Check from BOF to City Hunter (it became outright beakish). I think he's got it looking great now (although I preferred the BOF nose). I just marvel at stars who are known for their looks taking a chance on messing with their already great looks.

He can go on impersonating the prosecutor for the whole length of the drama if this is how he is going to look. I won't complain.

Oh my god, I snorted so hard I spilled my coffee!! LOL

Well, I don't know why but I feel Galicia suits the story. Perhaps it's bc Galicia is known for its legends and magical creatures (Meigas, Nubeiros, Damas du Castro...)

Now that I think about it, perhaps they chose Galicia bc the legend of Mariña, the mermaid of Sálvora (there's a statue of her on the Island of Sálvora, looking at the ocean).
It said she was the mother of the first inhabitants of the island, the Mariño. And interesting enough, like Ariel in the Disney's version, she was found on the shore by the knight Froilaz (who fell in love with her) and was mute for a while.

So maybe some person in the production team read about it researching about mermaids and that's why.

That's an interesting story... :-) I didn't mean that Galicia isn't a romantic setting, it is, but they could have had him stand somewhere more glamorous for that particular photo; I just can't reconcile Hallyu stars with Spanish tascas, too jarring for this Spaniard :-)

And Lee Min-ho's links with Galicia are deep; he doesn't have a river named after him for no reason :-p

After Boys Over Flowers, I've never been particularly interested in any of his projects... or style. (I've been more invested with his BFF Jung Ilwoo's projects instead. Not that all of Ilwoo's projects were good, unfortunately.) Hoping Lee Min Ho charms me as a viewer again. His style in this drama isn't distractingly bad. Charm me or not, I'm in for this drama beginning 'til end because of Jeon Ji Hyun and Lee Hee Joon.

I don`t want to see him near those sight-harming sweaters ever again!! and he's playing a mature role which is a huge welcome to revive my love for him after his last drama that almost took all my love for him and throw it out of the window!! I'm happy to see him the same way I used to and have my love for him back again!!

I second everyone's comments on how this is the best he has looked in awhile. I am aware that the majority of us like him (considering the fact that Boys over Flowers is pretty much a rite of passage drama) but his choices in recent dramas (Heirs) has left more to be desired but he seems to have really gotten it together for this one. I'm glad because I love the female lead and the plot and I'm hoping this drama will become one of my favorites, it has everything it needs to be because this is totally my style so we'll have to see the execution! We are all anticipating!

Also, I love his clothing in those stills. Everything is tailored well and the fabrics are great, I particularly love the velvet jacket. SUCH babetown.

This trailer was better than I expected! I love every bit of it! They look so good together and their interaction showed a lot of chemistry! This is so promising!
I already guessed that, if the 1st teaser was poetic and serious, the next one would explore the funny part of the drama, since LOTBS has always been cataloged as comedy romance and we had a lot of hilarious fanpics from spanish fans last month. So far, the promotion is working really well in atracting all kind of interest and expectations.
Ah, but it must be hard to be a Lee Min Ho hater these days. Its that all you have? Salty comments about his Heirs looks? Get over it, please. Its been 3 years already, he did something so mature as Gangnam Blues, and even if some didnt like it, by korean standars his fashion in Heirs was highly praised. Also, I cant take seriously a person who says LOTBS is overrated when it hasnt even aired yet.
OK! Im really excited about this drama. Both teasers and the still cuts are awesome. Looks like its going to be a real hit!

I don't know what class I fall under when it comes to Lee Minho '87

I haven't seen Gangnam Blues yet. But I'm still not over the sweaters. I doubt I'll ever be completely over the sweaters, much like Justin Timberlake's blond curls of the late 90s, early 2000s. It doesn't matter if it's a trend. Trends die and are regretted.

Classics are forever. And this classic look serves Minho well. I think next to City Hunter and Personal Taste this is my favorite look ever. CH styling was epic but PT was everyday, guy next door. Seems like this is more of a mix of the two. Can't wait to see it in action.

hmm, just realized I haven't really seen korean actors in sandals or slippers before in their shots or dramas. probably it's a height thing since a lot of them are well known for 'declaring' a higher height.

in these photos, lee min ho has no such problem/worry :)
