Lee Min-ho, who stars in the upcoming drama “The Legend of the Blue Sea,” greeted fans for the first time on Naver’s V app Monday.
It has been a while since he appeared in a Korean series and he told fans how much the upcoming drama means to him.
During the live broadcast, Lee said, “I had a production press conference today for ‘The Legend of the Blue Sea’ so I feel very tired and feel like doing the broadcast lying in bed.”
Some posters for the new drama have been revealed, showing the two lead characters, Lee Min-ho and Jun Ji-hyun, another top celebrity.
“The Legend of the Blue Sea,” a combination of romance, fantasy and comedy, revolves around a mermaid played by Jun, who enters a totally different world and tries to adapt to society. She later falls in love with a character played by Lee.
Lee expressed hope during the broadcast that the drama would be a big hit. “It was a great opportunity for me to work with so many great actors and actresses altogether and I do hope fans will like watching it,” he said.
When asked by fans if he had any particular reason for taking a role in the drama, he said, “I feel honored to work with the drama’s director, writer and, especially, the great actress Jun Ji-hyun.”
“We weren’t that close in the beginning,” Lee said. “I felt nervous at first, but soon we become good friends.”
Lee also said, “The drama is set to hit screens in two days and I hope it will warm the hearts of fans in this cold weather.”
