Lee Min Ho is leaving for Spain on September 11 to shoot new Korean drama, Legend of The Blue Sea, leaving kdrama fans to wonder how this news will affect his relationship with Uncontrollably Fond actress, Bae Suzy, the International Business Times reports.
Lee Min Ho and Bae Suzy of Miss A have been plagued by breakup rumors lately and claims that the Uncontrollably Fond actress is having an affair with her co-star Kim Woo Bin. Woo Bin and Suzy have repeatedly denied the rumors but that hasn’t stopped them from spreading.
As Inquisitr previously reported, there were even claims that Lee Min Ho had asked Bae Suzy to leave Uncontrollably Fond because he was jealous of her deepening relationship with her hunky co-star.

But for a talented actor like Lee Min Ho, his career has to be prioritized over personal relationships. So it seems that his focus is on his upcoming Korean drama project Legend Of The Blue Sea.
As Yibada notes, Legend Of A Blue Sea has an interesting plot. Lee plays a con-artist who uses multiple identities to scam people while his co-star, Jun Ji-Hyun, plays a mermaid adjusting to life in modern South Korea. The two embark on a love story that has a great chance of making big waves when Legend Of The Blue Sea premieres in 2017.
In an interview with Drama Fever, Lee Min Ho seemed excited about taking on a role in a fantasy drama
“I think this will be a series that has an appropriate amount of fantasy. Since the drama contains elements that are universally acknowledged, I think that this project will give off a more familiar feel to the viewers,” Min-Ho said.

The 20-episode drama will also star Lee Hee Joon, Shin Hye-Sun, Moon Sori, Lee Ji-Hoon and Na Young Hee. According to Yibada, the concept behind this Korean drama was adapted from a mermaid story by an ancient Korean scholar Yu Mong-In. The story centers around an officer, Kim Dam Ryung, who unleashed mermaids into the ocean that are later caught by fishermen.
Lee Min Ho also expressed an excitement to work with Jun Ji-Hyun. Maybe Bae Suzy should be the one feeling jealous!
“Firstly, she’s a top actress who’s been in the industry for many years,” said Lee. “So I think it’ll be a good setting for me to learn from her as a fellow actor. This is a long-awaited comeback series for her as well. It’s been a long time since I’ve also appeared in a drama. So I think it will be a fun and meaningful time.”
