Meet the con man trifecta of Legend of the Blue Sea
Lest we’ve forgotten that the gift that keeps on giving, aka Legend of the Blue Sea, doesn’t just star Jeon Ji-hyun (You From Another Star) and Lee Min-ho (Heirs), stills of Lee Min-ho and his fellow con men have been released. Actors Lee Hee-joon (Yoo-na’s Street) and Shin (Big) complete the swindling trio led by brilliant con man Lee Min-ho.
SBS’s hotly anticipated Legend of the Blue Sea is a fantasy romance drama written by You From Another Star scribe Park Ji-eun and directed by Jin Hyuk of City Hunter fame. Based on an old folktale about a mermaid caught by a fisherman, Legend centers around the last mermaid on earth, played by Jeon Ji-hyun, and the con man who’s stuck with easing her transition from an underwater existence to a life on land, played by Lee Min-ho. It’s a story that spans centuries, and we’ll be shown how our characters evolved from past to present.
Lee Hee-joon plays Jo Nam-doo, the sly and quick-witted decoy who can convincingly put on any act and lure people in with his inviting demeanor. While Lee Min-ho’s character Heo Joon-jae is the mastermind who conceives the schemes, Nam-doo is the one who lays down the tracks so the con can commence. Shin plays Tae-oh, the technician with flower boy looks who can unlock any door in two seconds, clearing whatever obstacles may obstruct them.
If you love a man in uniform, then you’ll love Lee Min-ho disguised as a pilot with aviators on. Sadly they’re not all in uniform, but Lee Hee-joon in a pinstripe suit gives off a dandy feel, and Shin looks effortlessly cool and casual in a leather jacket. I’d clamor to join this squad. Believe it or not, the show finally premieres next week. The biggest question will be whether it will meet the hype or fizzle despite the A-list wattage. We shall see!
Legend of the Blue Sea premieres on SBS on November 16.
