The very first time I saw the still cuts from "The Legend of the Blue Sea", I thought this was going to be a heart aching love story with Jun Ji-hyun acting as a fragile, delicate mermaid. I mean, look at these pictures. Her dewy eyes and dainty shoulder line makes any man or woman want to protect this beautiful mermaid!
As I watched the new trailer though, I realized that I was tricked. Big time. Forget the fragile little mermaid who needs to be protected, this mermaid will kick anyone's butt who comes in her way. This strange yet adorable woman reminds us Cheon Song-i from "My Love from the Star" and the girl from "My Sassy Girl". Jun Ji-hyun is known as the "definition of beauty" in South Korea, yet the roles she play are some outrageous characters. You know, those odd characters you can't help it but fall in love with.
Another reason why I'm so excited for this drama is because of the genre. I have mentioned this in the other post, but I'm a sucker for those historical fusion fantasy dramas. Fortunately, this drama is showing the connection between Lee Min-ho and Jun Ji-hyun's connection throughout time, from the ancient time to modern time. We will see how special their connection is. The drama will be on air next week, so tune in!
