Fabulous news for fans of Lee Min Ho and Jeon Ji Hyun! It's been confirmed that the two Hallyu stars will travel to exotic locations for filming their new drama The Legend of the Blue Sea. Find out more about why Palau and Spain are chosen, as well as other updates about the highly anticipated fantasy romance.

News came on August 12 that Lee Min Ho and Jeon Ji Hyun will be traveling first to Palau in late August, and then to Spain in September. 

Apparently the clear blue seas in Palau and Spain are the main reason for the overseas shooting. According to the source, "Since the content of the drama involves exotic coasts and the title itself includes blue sea, they are leaving to film overseas.”

Jeon Ji Hyun plays a mermaid who finds her way to Seoul, and Lee Min Ho plays a con artist who falls in love with the mermaid. (Wait, will the mermaid swim from Spain to Seoul?)

Before excited fans jump into the plane or a boat to get to Palau to check out on-location shooting, remember, the island nation in the Pacific Ocean has 250 islands.

The story is penned by writer Park Ji Eun (My Love From Another Star), who wrote the new drama with the two leading stars in mind, and the production is helmed by director Jin Hyuk (City Hunter, The Master's Sun.)

Other actors who are joining the cast so far are: Lee Ji Hoon (Mirror of the Witch), Shin Hye Sun (Oh My Ghostess), Moon So Ri, and Lee Hee Joon.

The Legend of the Blue Sea will go on air in November.

I can't wait. How about you?
