Thursday - the optimistic day of the week as we'll always looking forward to what tomorrow brings.
Friday - the always fun day as the next day is the work-free and school-free day.

Both days are just right for a drama-date, Legend of the Blue Sea which airs on ONE HD, Astro Ch 393 at 8.10pm (within 24 hours of its Korean telecast).

There may be some that are attributing the success of the show mostly to its superstar leads but it is also obvious to see that both Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun have brought their characters to life. It is no wonder that the premiere episode has managed to hit such ratings heights. There are already some classic scenes that will remember long after the show has ended.
