In regards to my last post/ warning, I've received some PMs requesting for clarifications.  I'm going to reply here so that everything will be clear for everybody and fan fights won't reproduce again.

This weeks episodes were great with both the action and story and have been my favourite yet.   There was one scene which really hit me and it was the ending scene when AS and EC hugged. The

Drama 'Mr. Sunshine' fuels popularity of retro parlance

“’Love’ hago sip so (I desire love).” This was one of the many lines that can be found at a chat room on a Korean portal site where the viewers of Mr. Sunshine, a popular drama on tvN channel on August 19. The room quickly filled up with replies with old Korean expressions such as “Nado geureo hao (Same here),” “Ebeon saeng eun gleosso (Not a chance in this life).” Small chit-chats followed even during the drama was being aired. The content of replies varied, but they used the “hao” style at the end of each sentence. 

 

The viewer ratings of Mr. Sunshine surpassed the mark of 15 percent, according to Nielson Korea on August 19. The average viewing rate of those aged between 20 and 49, which are considered as the most critical viewers population, stood at 9.3 percent, beating all competitors with the same time slot. Popular dramas are naturally followed by a great scale of fan base. But there is something peculiar about the avid viewers of Mr. Sunshine. 

 

Set against the era of the Korean Empire, the show is fueling the popularity of retro style outfits and accessories. An increasing number of consumers are looking for “the enlightenment period look.” On-line shopping malls and rental shops of traditional Korean clothes are promoting their products on social media, hashtagging the name and the style of Go Ae-shin, the female lead of the show, which is played by Kim Tae-ri. 

 

In many Internet communities, people leave comments to identify the brand of hairbands worn by Kudohina, a Japanese character in the show played by Kim Min-jung. Those items were all shown in the drama as part of a product placement advertisement, also known as PPL. In fact, many people leave comments attesting to their first personal purchase of traditional Korean clothes. In an Internet community frequented by male consumers, tips are being shared on how to grow a beard like Kim Hui-sung, a male character played by Byun Yo-han in the show. Auction, an online shopping mall in Korea, announced that the amount of sales of retro fashion and daily times, such as pearl necklaces and traditional purses, has soared as much as five times year-on-year.

@charray  RE: Eugene tied up - Ooh! This is intriguing. Is that Lee Jeong Mun's side profile (in blue dress) in one of the pics? Did he order the arrest? The soldiers around Eugene - they're Joseon ones, right? The Japanese have a blue tinged uniform. But the red bands on their sleeves and caps are throwing me off and  making me think that they're Japanese soldiers.

Oh dear.. the preview and captures for tonight's episode doesn't look good for everyone. :unsure:Is someone making EC a scapegoat.. yet again? Even a job with the Emperor may not protect him and those close to him? Seeing EC tied up brought out a bad feeling that someone will be killed off.. not necessarily the ones shown in the preview. :sweatingbullets: Could be another tragic twist no one expected.

 

 

Beautiful Firefly..

@mistymorning can you stop calling DM calling him a stalker, he was locked up for a number of days and when he got out, he investigated and give help to grandpa's. And yet he is still branded as a stalker? He is actually very busy running his businesses which showed, when he got out of captivity, he had to cover a few places immediately. He doesn't spend all his time on AS.

 

Once I get fed up,  I might start attacking the botox face of EC?   if you don't like DM, just don't talk about him. Like I never talk about EC.

 

This is a bloody Lee byun Hun thread. I see now the Hotaru character actress is from his company too.

 

Goodbye.

Here’s some new picture stills of Dong Mae who seems to be shot. Hope someone will come to his help and save him. Maybe it will be Ae Shin again? Not sure what is the current state of their debts now? :)

@rubie Oh! No! You are not quitting this thread too? . You had been the key person to keep this thread alive and we had enjoyed all the information and pictures and videos that you had shared.  Thank you for all your efforts. It will not be the same without you. Please reconsider. Don’t mind what others say as I cannot see what is the problem of Kim Yong Ji being from BH Entertainment. I think she is lucky as it is a good agency since it helped her to get such a good role for her debut.

 

Interesting that a dance school had also choreographed a dance using a most familiar OST from Mr Sunshine. Nice.

Joseon soldiers (military uniform) and probably Lee Jeong Mun

 

 

1. EC got into trouble with his actions

2. Joseon wants to solve the problem with RA, they arrested RA members when they met?

Maybe the meeting and conversation EC-Lee Jeong Mun is a warning against something more dangerous (executions, pacification of partisans) and they be released or they only let go EC?

 

@rubie stay, ignore posts when necessary because there is no point in getting nervous .

The king might have viewed the RA's action as contempt? 

WIth pressure coming from japaneese army, the king is forced to arrest the grandpa of AS and those involves with this movement.

EC might've prevented the capture, and paid huge price for his action.

Just to add more heat to the fire, the actor Lee Byung Hun in my opinion cannot have had Botox, as his facial muscles are still moving. I came here because other places in which discuss this serie were not nice to the show itself as well as to the first lead. As I didn’t know any of the actors working in this production,  never heard of them before, included LBH, I cannot understand those who said someone else would fit better their parts. To me, all the actors, including the support actors, could not have been choosed better because them all are great at delivering their lines.  To conclude, I find also funny seeing that some people talk as the characters were real, or identifies the actors with their parts. Sounds so strange to me. I wish everyone enjoy  the show as I do.

@marfisa No offence, just my opinion. 

 

Mr. Sunshine is fictional series.

I know they are fictional heroes/characters and many events are made up but I have respect for sad/dark history and this series show this period. 

Perhaps this is a form of accounting for the past or an attempt to evaluate it. Sometimes directors of movies and series choose difficult topics.
