“Mr. Sunshine” Gives A New Preview Of Characters Through Dramatic Posters

 

Source: Soompi by S. Park

 

Upcoming tvN drama “Mr. Sunshine” has revealed new posters of its main characters.

 

“Mr. Sunshine” is a historical drama that will tell the story of a Korean man who boarded a warship to the United States in 1871 during the Korean Expedition and then returns after he gets stationed in Korea as an American soldier.

 

“Mr. Sunshine” boasts a stellar cast and crew. Many popular actors will appear in this drama that was written by Kim Eun Sook and directed by Lee Eung Bok, who previously worked together on hit dramas  “Descendants of the Sun” and “Goblin.”

 

The posters of Lee Byung Hun, Kim Tae Ri, Yoo Yeon Seok, Kim Min Jung, and Byun Yo Han give viewers a glimpse at their characters who may not have been recorded in history books, but were heroes who rose in the cause for justice and fought for the independence of Korea.

 

Lee Byung Hun will appear as Eugene Choi, who was born as a slave in Korea and then grew up in the United States. In the poster, he looks charismatic as he points his gun up in the air. The words on his poster say, “Turbulent times. I thought that I had gone to the end, but I may have to go a bit further. One more step. Into the flame.”

 

Kim Tae Ri will portray Go Ae Shin, the daughter of a noble family who has an innocent appearance and tough mind. In the poster, she is wearing a pink gown while pointing a rifle at someone.

 

The words on her poster read, “The age of romance. If it’s a flower that’s going to bloom then fall, I want to become the hottest flame.” Her quote is a play on words, as the word for “flower” is included inside “flame” in Korean.

 

Spoiler

 

Yoo Yeon Seok holds onto an encased ornamental knife in his hand.  He will appear as Goo Dong Mae, who was born as a butcher then returns to Joseon as a president of a chapter of the Black Dragon Society. His poster says, “The age of loss. I shot a blackbird so it won’t fly again.”

 

Pointing a fencing sword at someone, Kim Min Jung looks fierce and confident in her poster. She will appear as Kudo Hina, the CEO of Glory Hotel, which she inherited from her Japanese husband. Her poster says, “An unbelievable time. There are things that can’t be cut with a knife like a righteous, burning mind.”

 

Byun Yo Han will portray Kim Hee Sung, an unemployed man who just returned to Korea after studying abroad in Japan and is the suitor of Go Ae Shin. He lets out a hearty laugh with a pipe in his mouth. The words on his poster read, “A cheerful era.  If you’re in danger, run here and hide. If you’re the reason why I came to Joseon, it’s an honor.”

 

A source from the drama said, “The ‘Mr. Sunshine’ posters symbolically express the individual ways that Lee Byung Hun, Kim Tae Ri, Yoo Yeon Seok, Kim Min Jung, and Byun Yo Han are living in the rapidly changing Joseon. Please look forward to the acting of Lee Byung Hun, Kim Tae Ri, Yoo Yeon Seok, Kim Min Jung, and Byun Yo Han in ‘Mr. Sunshine’ that will convey the most painful confession of modern history in the early 19th century.”

 

“Mr. Sunshine” will premiere on July 7 at 9 p.m. KST and air 24 episodes.

Lee Byung Hun and “Inside Men” director Woo Min Ho may  collaborate again in “Heads of Nanshan” (a translation)

 

20180611_2.jpg

 

On June 5, according to the film industry news, Lee Byung Hun is in positive discussion with “Inside Men” director Woo Min Ho in his new movie “ Heads of Namsan”.

 

“Heads of Namsan” is a film based on the book of the same name. The book used the Ministers of the Korean Central Intelligence Agency and their planning politics as the material to reveal the inside story of Korean politics.

 

The film will be a reconstruction based on the stories of Kim Jae Gyu and Kim Hyong Uk, who were both Directors of the Korean Central Intelligence Agency.  Kim Hyong Uk disappeared when the late President Park Chung Hee was in power.  Until now, the disappearance of Kim Hyong Uk is still a mystery in modern history.  The film is expected to start with the story of Kim Jae Gyu in the centre of the disappearance of Kim Hyong Uk.  Lee Byung Hun was offered the part to play Kim Jae Gyu.

There are five tough guys in the movie world.  Two Asian actors are on the list.  One from South Korea and the other from China. (A translation)

 

20180611_1.jpg

 

Lee Byung Hun is one of the few actors in South Korea that can take on action as well as dramatic roles.  He is an action superstar in South Korea.  His achievements in Hollywood are remarkable.  His contribution to the South Korean Film Industry is enormous.  It is true that young male actors are plentiful in South Korea.  However, when aesthetics are judged,  Lee Byung Hun stood out.  Therefore, the new generation of young male actors need to focus on body building.  They can no longer just rely just upon their handsome faces to make a living.

 

The five actors are:

 

1.  Chris Heimsworth from Australia

2.  Sylvestor Stallone from the United States.

3.  Lee Byung Hun from South Korea

4.  Jason Statham from the United Kingdom

5.  Wu Jing from China

Terminator Genisys Released on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

 

Ryan Cooper Geek Alerts

 

Terminator Genisys 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray

 

Today, Terminator Genisys was released on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. The movie originally hit theaters on July 1, 2015 and was released to Blu-Ray and DVD on November 10, 2015, but today (June 12, 2018) is the first availability of the 4K ultra high definition version.

 

It’s a film that really takes advantage of the benefits of 4K and HDR. The movie was finished in 2K (although shot with even higher resolution digital cameras), which is much higher than 1080p and will translate into a sharp detailed image. Also, the movie is quite dark, especially for the first half, so the benefits of high dynamic range will really shine with the shadow details, not to mention the explosions, laser blasts, and red-eyed terminators. Besides for the high video quality, movies like this are why multi channel sound systems with beefy subwoofers are so important, and the Dolby Atmos soundtrack will not disappoint.

 

When John Connor (Jason Clarke), leader of the human resistance, sends Sgt. Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) back to 1984 to protect Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) and safeguard the future, an unexpected turn of events creates a fractured timeline. Now, Sgt. Reese finds himself in a new and unfamiliar version of the past, where he is faced with unlikely allies, including the Guardian (Arnold Schwarzenegger), dangerous new enemies, and an unexpected new mission: To reset the future…

Directed By: Alan Taylor

Starring: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, Matt Smith, Byung-Hun Lee, JK Simmons

Written By: Patrick Lussier & Laeta Kalogridis

 

No merchants have a special exclusive version of Terminator Genisys 4K Ultra HD, it is the same at all of them. This makes Walmart the best place to buy it right now, since it is the cheapest at $18.09.  (The list price is $31.99)

 

Buy Terminator Genisys (4K Ultra HD + Blu-ray + Digital Copy) at Walmart, Best Buy, Target, Amazon, or Deep Discount.

It's a good thing that the character of Eugene Choi is a clean-shaven and well-attired army officer.. we'd get to see BH sporting similar features when he's not filming. When he appeared for public events while filming Mag7, keeping up with the character (through facial hair, tanned skin) got him unnecessary criticism. :mellow:

K-drama Writer Kim Eun Sook & PD Lee Eung Bok Target Third Collaborative Hit With “Mr. Sunshine”

 

By abbyinhallyuland | HelloKpop


WILL MR. SUNSHINE FOLLOW THE FOOTSTEPS OF GOBLIN AND DESCENDANTS OF THE SUN?

 

That’s a question that Korean drama fans look forward to as the premiere date of Mr. Sunshine approaches next month.

 

As the third project of acclaimed writer Kim Eun Sook and director Lee Eung Bok, attention is focused on the production team and the star-studded cast of Mr. Sunshine.

 

The creative tandem flaunts a combination of stellar drama roster which includes The Heirs, A Gentleman’s Dignity, Secret Garden, Discovery of Love, Secret Love and School 2013. Such great dramas came from these showrunners that it’s hard not to anticipate another amazing story.

 

Mr. Sunshine

 

Boasting South Korea’s representative actor Lee Byung Hun and powered by all-star main cast of Kim Tae Ri (Little Forest), Yoo Yeon Seok (Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim), Kim Min Jung (Man to Man) and Byun Yo Han (Six Flying Dragons), the hype for tvN’s upcoming weekend drama keeps on skyrocketing.

 

Mr. Sunshine will be Lee Byung Hun’s return to the small screen after 9 years since spy drama IRIS. Kim Tae Ri of The Handmaiden fame will officially make her television debut.

 

The new tvN historical series treads on the story of a boy who boarded a warship during the Shinmiyangyo, a United States expedition to Korea in 1871. He then returns to his native country in late Joseon era as an American soldier.

 

Mr. Sunshine

 

The released character posters and sketches reflect Lee taking the role of Choi Yoo Jin, a US Marine Corps captain, with Kim Tae Ri sporting a strong gaze holding a rifle as a famous Joseon freedom fighter. All main characters symbolically expressed their lives in the catastrophic time of late Joseon era.

 

Mr. Sunshine replaces Lawless Lawyer for the weekend time slot starting July 7.

MR.SUNSHINE promos are coming left and right. It really looks more like a film than a 20-episode drama. Undeniably a top-notch production and fans get to see it much longer than a 2.5-hr movie.

It's strange that tvN published the video and then took it down. :huh: I've uploaded the clip I saved last night and replaced it in the same post above. Hopefully it won't get detected by tvN to be deleted instead. The station is particularly fast in restricting their videos all the time.

 

So, check out the production clip. Good thing that I somehow felt that the video should be dl-ed and saved.. just in case.^_^
