It’s pretty amazing how mainstream and widespread K-dramas have become in the nearly two decades since it started proliferating beyond the domestic borders of South Korea. Last year the Greek newspapers covered the overseas filming of Descendants of the Sun when the production chose the country as a stand-in for the fictional war torn Urk, and now the Spanish newspaper has splashed a post on Lee Min Ho and Jeon Ji Hyun filming Legend of the Blue Sea in Spain.
Legend doesn’t have as much early filming head start as DotS did in full pre-production but there’s immense buzz for the SBS scooped up drama when it premieres November 16th after Incarnation of Jealousy. Fans snapped additional pictures of the visually compatible and glamorous leads filming, this time less fight on the steps and more romance on using a bike. I see arm around shoulders which makes their onscreen relationship seem like further along in the drama narrative, likely the overseas scenes won’t air in the very start of the drama.
