A special episode of the drama "Legend of the Blue Sea" starring actors Jun Ji-hyun and Lee Min-ho will air this week, its broadcaster SBS TV said Wednesday. The special episode will air Thursday and be a summary of the plot so far. The fantasy romance is currently facing a storm of public criticism over its similar storyline with the 2013-14 hit drama "My Love from the Star" and its slow plot development.
Due to the upcoming episode, the 14th episode will be postponed to Jan. 4.
"The special episode, which will be based on the romance between Shim Chung (played by Jun), the mermaid from the Joseon Dynasty, and Heo Joon-jae (played by Lee) will allow viewers to skim through the first half of the drama like watching a movie," SBS said.
