@mistergenie Yeah.. can't say for certain about the last-episode cameos, because we really don't know about the drama.. even after 22 episodes.. like, what is really happening. :wacko: Kinda wish that they'd film it to a 30-episode drama since 50 would be too long. At least.. more of the (unaired) scenes could be shown to make the drama even better. Anyway.. it's just a silly wishful thinking. It'll be hard to let go..obviously.. th_sad010.gif

 

Looks like MR.SUNSHINE is no longer at No.1 of the Buzzworthy list from the Korean media updates posted late tonight. Well, good things doesn't last forever. Perhaps, by tomorrow we'll see the English news to read. -_-

 

Anyway, some light-hearted caricatures of the main characters in doggie version, illustrated by a cat lover. 176.gif

 

Buzzworthy not a good gauge =P

Most of the viewers of Mr. Sunshine encompasses 30-40 of age. Most of them are busy with works instead of making fuss online. hehe

Viewership rating = Everything!!

The flour proposal was one unexpected scene. :wub: Simply beautiful & meaningful scene, very nicely presented. Though not quite original, the shoe scene (ep16) is another bittersweet beautiful moment shared by the couple. I think.. I hope.. there will be a kiss scene in ep23.. just not 'planned'.. as usually expected.

Kim Min Jae will make a special appearance in last episode. Another new character appearing in the last episode. Fans in Weibo are speculating if he will be the offspring of one of the characters maybe Ae Shin and Eugene or Hui Seong and the former noble lady that he met?

 

More details here

He might also be a grown-up Do-Mi.

The weekly behind-the-scenes footage have been released as usual ~

 

Actors Park Jung Min and Lee Byung Hun reunited in the 22nd episode of MR.SUNSHINE. PJM who appeared as Korean Independence Activist Ahn Changho, had a scene with Choi Yu Jin/Eugene Choi upon his release from prison. Prior to MR.SUNSHINE, the 2 actors were in the 2018 movie, Keys to the Heart.

Upcoming HIGH CUT issue will feature all the winners of Qing Long Awards of 2016 and 2017 classes, which means both KTR and LBH will feature in it with individual cover.

Re-watching bits of the last episode, and I'm still annoyed at Eugene's "treason" conviction. Treason, in the US, is only waging war against the state, or aiding the enemy. Firing a single bullet at a building doesn't qualify as treason. If he really had committed a treasonous act, he'd get a lot more than 3 years!

 

Ah, well, who care about reality?

 

The rings, too. Matching couple rings were NOT a thing back then! Many American men didn't bother with wedding rings at all, and the ones who did wear one usually wore a plain band, NOT something that matched the lady's ring. It make for some sweet scenes, but I just cringe at the anachronism. Might as well give them matching t-shirts.

 

Also, Dong-Mae needs a hug.

This is awesome highlight :wub: .. I was waiting for a group pictorial for the cast of MR.SUNSHINE.. although it may not happen. There are of course, individual pictorials for everyone.. Byun Yo Han has been coming out with magazine spread and interview. For new movies to be released, there're always (at least one) pictorial of the main cast but not a common practice for dramas. Although I thought there were one or two dramas recently that had couple pictorial, if not mistaken, Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food and What's Wrong with Secretary Kim.. might be totally wrong here. :wacko:

 

Anyway.. I'm a bit curious about the Qing Long Awards of  2016 and 2017 classes. Have not heard or read about it.. is there another name for it? Sorry, I can't help asking for details.. for re-posting purposes.

I think it is Blue Dragon Film Awards? Both LBH and KTR look great in their individual pictures posted above.

@charray, @rubie, yup, those are some of Blue Dragon Film winners for 2016/2017. LBH won best actor and KTR won Best New Actress on 2016.

 

Jumped on limited edition Mr Sunshine OSTs. It's probably the first time for me to want more narration in the OST disk., because there's only 1 Eugene's narration... can I have more?

Emperor Gojong desperately needed Jang Seung Gu not to die.. there's really no one by his side anymore as LJM doesn't return to Joseon. It's sad and pitiful that the king is really all alone in the end.

SG grew up resenting the Emperor and wanted to kill him but he had to serve to protect his 'enemy' and eventually learn to understand about the man on the throne. 

 

SG who grew up as a rebel, as @mistergenie mentioned, he died a HERO.

@rubieGunner Jang was one of my two most favourite characters in the drama, so I wish he somehow managed to survive.

 

HCY's vlive session on 11 Sep where he talked about his OST has now been subbed in English. I watched it  again hoping he'll somehow give a spoiler (that's assuming he can guess the ending through the lyrics of his OST ) but he didn't really.  He did praise LBH's acting  .... he  talked about the OST  from 46:36 to 52:26.

 

https://www.vlive.tv/video/88506

 

 

Spoiler

51:19 A fan asked HCY "What did you think about while singing it?" His answer: "Since it's my feeling, I thought about a battlefield.  A music director was with me then.  A hero is standing on the battlefield in a gruesome place. And the biting wind is blowing, right? I thought about a lot of complicated emotions while I thought of the character who was standing in the middle.  A hero's heart where he had to leave the people  he loves behind and come to the battlefield. And the heart of having to survive and go back. I thought about many things and I put it in the lyrics."

Thank you @kansas424, @charray and @mistymorning for the Blue Dragon pictorial highlight and confirmation. Checking previous update (from the BD Awards 2017 winners' handprint), found these pics. Except for Park So Dam.. LBH, KTR and PJM have now connected through MR.SUNSHINE.

Chungmuro Crumb has a little description of the High Cut cover pictorial. I just love the black and white group photo.

 

 

@cynkdf Thanks so much for sharing the tidbits about the upcoming OST and how each singer would deliver his or her rendition, even in the  recording studio. All the MR.SUNSHINE soundtrack have been just outstanding and befitting for such an amazing drama to  experience. Everything about the final 2 episodes can be just about anything... that we probably did not expect. :mellow:

Byun Yo Han has won my heart ever since Misaeng.  I can't think of anyone else playing Kim Hee-Sung at this point.  The growth of his character, his grace and poise (haha I know), how he is able to rise above what is expected of him, all quietly for others ... to repay the sins of his family.    I don't think he has ever feel comfortable with his family wealth so instead, he puts his life to good use. Unlike many other characters bound by circumstances in this drama, Hee Sung is the author of his own destiny.  :)

 

Byun Yo Han Speaks Affectionately About “Mr. Sunshine” Co-Stars Lee Byung Hun And Yoo Yeon Seok

Byun Yo Han spoke about his experience while appearing in tvN’s “Mr. Sunshine.”

The actor is featured in the October issue of star1 Magazine where he graced the cover, posed for stylish photos, and partook in an interview.

In “Mr. Sunshine,” Byun Yo Han appeared as the serious yet humorous editor-in-chief Kim Hee Sung. About the drama, he said, “It was a story with weight, so I chose ‘Mr. Sunshine.’ I excitedly and carefully participated in the drama.”

 

He continued, “My heart lurched for the character Kim Hee Sung. I was anxious at first, but it now feels bittersweet after filming has ended.”

When asked what it was like filming with Lee Byung Hun and Yoo Yeon Seok, the actor replied, “What more is there to say. As a junior actor, it was a time where I could rely on senior actors, and I learned and felt a lot.”

 

He added, “Kim Hee Sung is a really great man. I strongly felt his strength in his decisions when he sincerely apologized, cooly let go of someone he loved, apologized while being truly embarrassed, and laughed without flinching even when a gun or a knife was pointed at him. I wanted to express the character Kim Hee Sung by even a few percents. He said fun lines, but he was hurting inside. So even though I was smiling, I was sad and very lonely.”

 

“I like documentaries, so I film myself a lot,” continued Byun Yo Han. “It’s because I want to learn about myself as a person. If I could be an editor-in-chief like my character in the drama, I want to interview my parents. I want to ask about the present and record it, not as a child and parent, but from interviewer to interviewee. I always want to live while expressing gratitude towards my parents and the people around me.”

@marfisa  Kyle was the only friend Eugene has for a long time.  Someone to confide in and guided him as EG was struggling with his nationality.  It was meaningful to admit that he is moving forward as a person.  He is confident that his home is in America but knows home is not limited by his relationship with the country or the military (which he has lost ties with).  I was glad to see Eugene starts to see himself more than just a captain of the US Marine Corps. His past with America and the armed forces are an important make up of who he is, a history that he does not forget.  He is at peace with this personal conflict, the question of where his loyalty should lie.  He still identifies with being a US citizen but it is not all who he will be.

 

When I first started to watch Mr Sunshine, I had thought about how the drama would address the idea of immigrants and patriotism.  I am not sure what the ending will be for all of our characters but I feel that the question of patriotism and country have been answered through Eugene.  He feels a part of both countries.  The love and patriotism he has are for both US and Joseon.  I really like how the drama settles on the idea that patriotism is a personal choice and not be defined by your birthplace.

Fantastic elucidation of Eugene's state of mind regarding patriotism/loyalty and being at peace with his identity even without the crutch of being a soldier. Loved your explanation. :)
