ONE to air highly anticipated blockbuster series 'Legend of the Blue Sea'


Singapore, 4th November 2016 - The top-rated Korean entertainment channel ONE will dazzle viewers this November with the new drama series Legend of the Blue Sea, starring reigning king and queen of Korea Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun. The series premieres on 17 November and will air every Thursday and Friday at 8.10pm (7.10pm JKT), within 24 hours of its Korean telecast, first and exclusively on ONE.

"Following the runaway success of Scarlet Heart, we are elated that once again our viewers can enjoy the next big Korean drama of the year exclusively on ONE," said Virginia Lim, Senior Vice President and Head of Content, Production & Marketing, Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia. "Legend of the Blue Sea has all the makings of a hit drama and ONE's viewers will be truly captivated by its massive star power, an intriguing premise, and impressive cinematography."

Legend of the Blue Sea is also the highly anticipated comeback drama for both its leading stars. The series marks Lee Min Ho's return to the small screen after three years, and it is the first drama for new mum Jun Ji Hyun, who gave birth to a baby boy earlier this year in February.

The 20-episode drama is helmed by renowned writer Park Ji Eun (My Love from the Star) and acclaimed director Jin Hyuk (The Master's Sun, City Hunter). The series tells the tale of the centuries-spanning love of the world's last mermaid and the man who has saved her. In the present day, Lee Min Ho plays a genius conman, and hilarity ensues when he crosses paths with Jun Ji Hyun's mermaid character as she attempts to adjust to life on land.

Legend of the Blue Sea premieres on ONE on 17 November and airs every Thursday and Friday, 8.10pm (7.10pm JKT), within 24 hours of its Korean telecast. It is available first and exclusively on ONE.
