《陽光先生》收視率再創新高,李秉憲演繹.  (A translation)

“Mr. Sunshine”  has reached a new high in ratings, and Lee Byung Hun performed.


According to the data provided by the rating company 'Nielsen Korea' on July 16, 2018, the average audience rating of the tvN new drama 'Mr. Sunshine' broadcast on the 15th reached 10.6, the highest audience rating reached 12.2, setting a new record for its own ratings.




In the fourth episode that aired on the 15th, Lee Byung Hun returned from the United States.  He found his enemies, the family that enslaved him.  He showed his identity to his enemies and pointed a gun at them, showing a very angry face.


Kim Tae Ri saw Yoo Yeon Seok again.  He was bullied as a child because he was poor.  At that time. Kim Tae Ri helped him.   When they met again, Yoo Yeon Seok asked if she still regarded him as a lowly butcher.   Kim Tae Ri responded:  “To Me, you’re not a butcher.  You’re one of the people. I don’t know wht kind of look I gave you but I gave you that look not because you’re a butcher.  It’s because you’re a traitor.”



“Mr. Sunshine” starring Lee Byung Hun, Kim Tae Ri, Yoo Yeon Seok and Byun Yo Han,  with the backdrop of the 1900s,  tells the story about the man Eugene who returned to to his motherland as a US soldier (Lee Byung Hun) and the Korean aristocrat Miss Ko Ae Shin (Kim Tae Ri). The drama is produced by the company that made “Goblin”.  This is a multi-million-dollar investment and big production, and the highest cost Korean drama.

@luwali 196 @peonie @p.v.wong @rori0711 Looks like this thread is taking a little break as we focus a little bit more on the drama thread, huh. :lol: It's been awhile having this great feeling watching MR.SUNSHINE as the drama picks up a positive feedback and steady ratings pace each episode. Despite some controversies popping up, the drama is doing well and defying all the negative vibes surrounding it before this. Feeling happy and grateful to be able to watch the episodes with good subs without much problem, the initial concern with the Netflix airing have all disappear. After MR.SUNSHINE, Lee Min Jung will be back on tv with her new drama and after a short break, as always.. Lee Byung Hun will return to the big screen.


In the meantime, all the best to Eugene Choi & MR.SUNSHINE! mrs.jpg

Despite the heavy theme and serious mood of the drama, the actors were having fun & getting along well together. Lee Byung Hun and Jo Woo Jin played enemies in Inside Men (the one who did that horrible thing to BH's Ahn Sang Gu :vicx:) but as Im Gwan Soo the interpreter, both of them have the best & funny bromance. :lol:Their continuous laughter will surely make everyone feel happy at the set.




Undeniably, the wonderful chemistry between Eugene and Ae Shin works well on and off screen. ^_^
