Jun Ji-hyun And Lee Min-ho Are Starring In A LITTLE MERMAID K-Drama

Craving a steamy romance between Jun Ji-hyun and Lee Min-ho? Just add water.

The MY SASSY GIRL and BOYS OVER FLOWERS icons are officially confirmed to star in an upcoming SBS drama about mermaids, mermen, and mer-friendly┬ámagistrates. Written by Park Ji-Eun, who previously penned the hugely popular┬áMY LOVE FROM THE STAR (also starring Jun), the new drama is tentatively titled LEGEND OF THE BLUE SEA. Reports vary on whether the fantasy-romance is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid,” or a Juseon-era Korean fairytale based on real-life historical figures–but we’ve deducted that it’s the latter.

While plot details are still murky, Chinese distributors have already begun a bidding war over the rights to stream the series, rumored to have offered a whopping $500,000 per episode.

But honestly: seeing Jun Ji-hyun and Lee Min-ho as mermaids? That’s priceless.
