Lee Minho Jun Jihyun's Legend of the Blue Sea enjoys strong debut; may beat Descendants of the Sun
Lee Minho and Gianna Jun Jihyun's latest collaboration 'Legend of the Blue Sea' aired on SBS on 16 Nov 2016. (17 Nov on Singapore's pay tv)
This is likely to be Lee Minho's last production before enlisting for military service and Jun Jihyun's first after her pregnancy and came with great expectations.
The couple did not disappoint and garnered the lion's share of the ratings on its opening night with 16.4% of viewership. The competition got less than 6% each.
Jihyun and Kim Soohyun's 'My Love from the Star' achieved a rating of 15.6% for its first episode while Song Hyekyo and Song JoongKi's 'Descendants of the Sun' scored 14.3% on its opening night.
In fact, Legend of the Blue Sea's best one-minute rating hit a high of 20.7% when Lee Minho can't bear to part ways with Jun and held her hands dearly. This strong debut holds great potential for the drama to break new records as it develops.
We would like to ask why do mermaids have legs? Hmmm... maybe we should just ignore the details and enjoy the show.
