Needlessly to say, Jun Ji-hyun is Jun Ji-hyun. Her name itself speaks class. For 90's kid like me, those who have lived through the 2000's watching Korean TV shows, Jun Ji-hyun is one of the biggest cultural symbol of South Korea. She may not have been on a lot of dramas as the other famous actresses did, but her biggest hit movie "My Sassy Girl" and her beauty was enough to put her on the top of the list.
She is so called the "Bible of Beauty" among South Koreans and I completely agree with that term. We were able to enjoy her acting on many movies such as "Windstruck", "The Thieves", "The Berlin File" and more, showing that she is not just the looks, but she possess a great acting skill as a top actress. Then, when she returned to the drama screen with "My Love from the Star", everyone agreed that Jun Ji-hyun never disappoints.
Now, after "My Love from the Star", Jun Ji-hyun returns to the drama screen again with "The Legend of the Blue Sea". During the 2 years of absence, Jun Ji-hyun have been through a pregnancy and child birth but there's no sign of that in her appearance as she gracefully swim through the blue water.
The producer of the drama expressed that he is always sorry to this actress and give the utmost respect. He said, "It is so difficult to act underwater. Movement itself is very limited and she had to dive underwater with just the mermaid custom, without any other equipment". He continued, "In the whole nation, there would be only one actress who would be able to act so flawlessly underwater and that is Jun Ji-hyun. She is an actress I can trust".
Actor Sung Dong-il who have watched her scenes while acting together, also gave high praises. He recalled the scene where she gets caught by the fisherman and said, "During the scene, she was in the water for 4-5 hours. Her body's probably not fully recovered after the child birth, yet I have not seen a single sign of complaints from her. I thought that was admirable. This is why she is a top actress".
As Jun Ji-hyun and "My Love from the Star" writer, Park Ji-eun come together, we are expecting another phenomenon to hit us all. The first episode was aired already, and I recommend all of you to go watch it asap because I dare to say this will be the best drama of this season.
