@mellinadear, sorry for cutting your post here, but just to respond to relevant point, 

Seems like Dong Mae cuts her hair because if AS has her hair cut, it'd mean that she has abandoned the spirit of Joseon thus will not be suspected to be a righteous army.

 

That's grasping a straw to explain DM's action. This doesn't fly because, 

 

1. People saw DM cutting AS's hair so public knows it's involuntary action. This will be considered shame to her, not any declaration.

2. WI doesn't know whether AS is RA. And WI already decided to kill grandpa Go. So he'll monitor Go household anyway... 

3. And lastly, Hunter Jang cut his hair but nobody will believe he abandoned the spirit of Joseon.

 

WI and Japanese imperialists seem to be much more willy, and if they are dumb enough so that comment is true, we wouldn't need to worry about Joseon's fate any more.

I wonder how the soldier knew the music box was of some relevance.

 

I haven't seen episode 18 but I think you meant the Japanese soldier, Takashi? He knew Eugene from their days in NY and would supposedly be familiar with his room there. He would have seen the music box and heard the song particularly when he intentionally was taking notes about EC. 

 

Wonder if Takashi was really close to Eugene... somewhat like Kyle. I hope not, it's such a disheartening situation when he was proudly flaunting his knowledge of Joseon to claim his nation's colony... pretty arrogant indeed. :angry: He even knew that Eugene was not from a high class. Obviously the friendship back in NY meant nothing at all. EC could be facing the (ultimate) betrayal of a so-called friend.

The matryoshka doll makes its appearance. :)  Symbolic for the different stages of womanhood, this one perhaps signifies Ae Shin's maturing to be a strong woman of her own.  I was really touched at Ae Shin's expressing thankfulness to those who have helped her.  Foreshadowing the passing of Lord Go and Ae Shin stepping up, making her own choices to control her own future.

 

He's the closest to a father figure to Ae Shin.  Even though they are years apart, I feel is Seung-Goo a kindred spirit to Eugene.  They truly see Ae Shin, her potential, to trust that she will learn and prevail on her own strength.  

 

Go and be whatever you want to be Ae Shin.

There are some important changes that happen to him in the last episodes: now he understands that money is a fickle mistress, that his people are not safe, but he also understands that he can make choices because he is not like his parents. The danger with him is precisely that he is so free of any attachments to any tradition--he is an outsider. Can he make the right choices?

 

What happened in the last episode is strange, and in a way negates his growth. But given the changes from the last episodes, like you, I'm also wondering if there is more there.  

 

45 minutes ago, mistymorning said:

Eugene also told DM about choices in life. I was hoping.. along with his near death experience and all the other people helping him, he'll make different choices. But KES didn't change his course here.

 

Putting on my pop-psychology hat, I think DM has trauma from his mother who slashed him to save him. Perhaps, that early memory makes him going back to uncommunicating violence dealing with Aeshin. but he's ok with all the other women in his life, Hotaru and Hina. I'm sure unless Hina told Aeshin about his help, he would have failed to communicate right to Aeshin about his good deed and intention. To me, the most tragic part of DM is that, it's all his making at this point.

 

 

Yes you two.  DM is very interesting character.  I think there is a reason behind KES's writing of DM and his ill-decision when is making choices.  From what tzupi is saying, society norms help shape a person, at least give us a basic guideline on what is wrong and right.  For DM, he puts himself outside of the society that he never feels he belongs, thus cast aside their rules.  It's up to his inner values to guide him to the right choice and because he tragically lost parental guidance, he is an outsider with his own dial of justice. His actions, demeanors.. does not follow norm.  Instead of thanking Eugene and Hee-Sung for saving him, DM perhaps couldn't identify and verbalize the feeling of gratitude.  Does he associate this with power of one person over another?  I agree that he is ultimately responsible for his own choices and consequences.

1. [+6012, -148] The reason he cut her hair is because Takashi asked Lee Wan Ik what he thinks the children of those who were in the Righteous Army in 1895 are doing right now and if Ae Shin is the child of those soldiers in the Righteous Army then he's suspecting that it's also possible that she's participating in the Righteous Army activities so that's why he (Lee Wan Ik) did a background check on her parents' names - Dong Mae cut her hair because if Ae Shin cuts her hair, it means that she gave up on Joseon's spirit and she won't be suspected of being in the Righteous Army
↪  [+1435, -11] How do you know things like this, seriously ㅋㄱㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㄲㅋㅋㅋ Amazing
↪ [+126, -9] Oh... that sounds reasonable, you must watch a lot of dramas

2. [+2875, -70] "This is yours" chills... Takashi really gives me chills

3. [+1960, -73] Because she's a child of a noble family, if she cuts her hair she might not be able to go around ㅠㅠ so he'll try to make her into an enemy ㅜㅜ He considers himself a villain.. *sigh* because my heart hurts so much, when I watch the drama, I get sad and angry

4. [+1730, -71] Dong Mae is really intense ㅜㅜ 

5. [+1514, -36] Starting from this week, the vibes are heavy and my heart hurts so much because it's suddenly shifting into that era's joys and sorrow

Questions:   Ae Shin was on her way to the pharmacy.  DM asked where she was going with no reply back from AS.

 

Where does DM think she is going?  And does the reason/destination make any real difference to him?

 

Thoughts guys? :D

Wow again the thread is on fire. And the ratings go up again but not enough for me..

My 2 cents..

1. DM (cutting AS hair) use it as on his own way protecting AS which is a big no no even on this time.. Even THOR got mad when Dr. Strange ask for a strand of his hair, and when Stan Lee cut his hair..(sorry out of topic) so DM you will be on dog house on my book (sorry DM fans) 

2. Now my family has a new guy to hate beside LWK welcome to the club T.Mori you give us chills man, kudos to the actor again,my nephew ( this time) wants to puch the day out of you :lol:

I don't know if anyone answered your question (I tried checking, didn't see anything, maybe I missed it?)

So just in case, here's my reply: The Japanese officer knew EC from their time in the USA. I think EC said he was his neighbor. Since The music box was probably the first thing EC bought the moment he saved enough money from doing child labor in the streets, he would have had that box for a very long time (according to what he told AS a while back), and he would have played it often in his bedroom in New York. It's possible the Japanese officer saw it then in his room (who is to say he didn't search it?) or he knew the box was EC's because he recognized the melody...

I do not know. But the whole discussion between the two is quite strange.

First, he says that he will give her one last chance. Then he tells us not to get involved more. Then he cut her hair.

I do not understand what this last chance is. At some moments, what he says to her sounds similar to what he said to the guy who later shot him (when he was curious why that guy would risk his life for defending the country).

Moreover, do they talk loud enough to be heard by the bystanders?!

 

On another topic: I am wondering whether the recruits would create problems for Eugene. He is the guarantor of one of them, and they seem to be foolish enough to try to kill LWI. And Eugene appears to make sometimes mistakes: like the blunder with the bullets. I think he realized that they are up to something, probably he guesses what, but sometimes he forgets that he has to act on the information he has. I'm afraid that now focused as he is on the new Japanese commander, he is more prone to making mistakes.

My writing this in my mind is a leap of faith and yet in my heart I can't deny what I felt while watching the end of this episode.

DM understands all those including himself who surround Joseon and are slowly closing in around it and those he cares about.  He himself escaped death more than once so he knows the dangers that are all to real. How does one protect someone you love when you can't even protect yourself? 

The only way you can think of.

Even if the price is your own happiness...

 

I haven't always understood DM it's true, but those tears in his eyes while moving closer to AS and the words that were being said over and over in his mind.  That look of desperation in knowing just what his actions would indeed cost him.  One swift but thought out cut of his sword would cut much more than AS's hair.  It would wound much more than her reputation or honor it would just as swiftly wipe out any and all hope that his heart ever had for love from the one woman he loved and wanted most...

 

Time and time again he has touched her dress, shot her instead of killing her, used fear instead of tenderness but no matter what form he chooses.  Or whether it makes sense or not it's what it is to him...

Love...

 

Maybe what I love about this story most of all is 3 different men whom are inspired and in their own ways love one woman.  They know about each other they understand one another.  They are even aware of each others hearts and feelings for the same woman and yet each is willing to sacrifice all that they have and are to protect that same woman.

No matter who lies within hers..

It would have made no difference and I was glad she didn't answer - she is under no compulsion to tell him where she comes and goes. I do wonder though if he tells her about Wan Ik's inquiry about her parents. Seems like too heavy and important a detail to keep to himself.

@KDramaLogic

may I ask you the link to be able to watch the unsubbed episodes on dailymotion? I have tried to seacrh for them, but I couldnt find episode 17.  Could you pleas help me?

 

I have read the usual recap by dramamilk. I am really shocked by the last scene in which Dong Mae cuts Aeshin hair. Even in the West is an horrible action cut a woman hair in public:  in middle age was the punishment for infidelity as it is read in literature, while in modern times this was done at the end of WWII to the women who collaborated with the nazis or the fascists. Their hair were cut in public and they were dragged around and called prostitutes. So, this is  shocking, really shocking.  Even with “good” twisted intentions to keep her safe, this was a cruel violence, hitting her body and her soul. Moreover she is already talked bad for ending the marriage promise, so she will be talked as a prostitute. I have to see what comes next, anyway it is so obviosly a machist thing, to treat a woman like she has no right, ad as if he knows better (what he knows? He doesn’t know anything). Decidedly Aeshin was right saying Joseon is not good to his women...

 

Hi @marfisa.  There were certainly a lot to take in Ep. 17 and 18! :sweatingbullets:

 

Normally, I would copy from this Soompi thread the Korean/Hangul title 미스터션샤인 and paste that title in the dailymotion.com or Google (video) search.  However, in recent times, more episodes of the drama, including Ep. 17, have been taken down from dailymotion.com at least the day after the initial uploading.  So, here are the working links for Parts 1 and 2 of today's episode that might be taken down by tomorrow:

Ep. 18 Part 1- 

 

Ep. 18 Part 2- 

 

Hope this helps!!!!

 

As for the last scene, I'm just about ready to throw the towel over having to explain repeatedly the whole "DM/AS will not/never happen as long as neither of them bother communicating to the other his/her actions/decisions/lot in life" spiel.  But considering that DM more-or-less tried to understand AS' family background/circumstances (i.e., visiting AS' parents gravesite/temple and confessing  his blunt exchange with AS as children) and cause for fighting for Joseon independence despite already having a "relatively secure" noble class status- none of which, btw, he mentioned whatsoever to AS- while AS continues honoring the whole "coin/debt exchange" (on behalf of deceased bureaucrat Lee Se-hoon's former servant whose life DM is "holding hostage" for the exchange, mind you), I might as well add more to this ad nauseum point.

 

After everything that DM learned about AS for the last 16 episodes (unless someone points out otherwise, I don't recall any encounter between AS and DM in Ep. 1 and 2), the best that DM thought he could do for AS' safety was cutting of her hair without even mentioning to her beforehand!?  Aside from the possible symbolic/cultural/etc. explanations/context behind the cutting of a woman's hair during the Joseon era (public shame/ostracizing, rebellion against one's parents/family, etc.), the fact that DM did something to AS (in this case, cutting her hair) without AS' knowledge, let alone consent, once more proves that DM has no mutual, fundamental communication, understanding of, or even respect for AS whatsoever.  Btw, this kind of scenario is something which I hope no individual (in this case, women) would ever have to face like AS had to at that moment.

 

Moreover, no matter AS' reckless, "unladylike" actions (i.e., rebelling against the Japanese and any pro-Japanese supporters at night) and headstrong nature that has more-or-less provoked- but really concerned- AS' grandfather, AS will stop for a moment to listen to what others (including EC, AS' grandfather, HN, Seung-gu, her servants, and even DM) have to say.  Even AS let HS explain his own lot in life, insecurities, and thoughts about his (now broken) engagement and future (or lack thereof), and HS, in turn, respected AS' decisions regarding her own future and acknowledged that he missed his chance with her after having postponed their engagement (and his return to Joseon from Japan) for 10 years.  The only way DM would ever make AS understand his thoughts or actions is if he actually talks about those (without threatening the lives of others); and right now, he may have lost his chance for good.  And DM will have no one else but himself to blame for that lost chance; for he had 16 episodes (again, not including Ep. 1-2) to reach some sort of understanding with AS, if not entirely make amends for those past actions as a member of the Japanese gang and his blunt, offhanded remarks (some of which he couldn't help but utter back when he was a victimized child who just lost his parents to a merciless beating/death by Joseon commoners for the murder of EC's mother's rapist).

Hi @mistymorning.  There's a hefty amount of debates over the last scene of Ep. 18.  I've had my say in my response to @marfisaquoted post above, and I'll leave it at that for now.  That being said, I'll give KES a benefit of a doubt regarding DM's ongoing character trajectory (or apparent lack thereof, particularly regarding AS).

 

Truthfully, up until Ep. 16, I was more-or-less impatiently anticipating AS' "immediate" evolved character growth/stance on her fight for Joseon independence and was questioning AS' daydreaming of her future with EC (though those scenes were beautifully shot and noteworthy for @Ahpheng to recapture in the comics) as though it were more important to her than her own safety, future, and initial cause for Joseon independence.  After having rewatched the episodes and reading comments and feedback from you and other fellow Soompiers, I realized that KES would not let any of the characters, including AS, make drastic changes in their personalities, perspectives, and/or actions even when others propose a thought-provoking life lesson, advice or question (like when EC asked AS if the Joseon she's fighting for will protect the butchers and slaves); for we as humans do not just suddenly change our stance or thoughts on what we've known, learned, or believed in, especially when it's something we've (subconsciously) held on to since childhood.  Given AS' upbringing as a Joseon noblewoman and her past tendencies to idealize "new", "radical" movements or ideologies including the RA and life in the U.S. (or other countries except Japan), it would be odd and out-of-character for AS to suddenly find the answer to EC's aforementioned question, try to understand the everyday lives/plight of all the Joseon people including DM (who, at this point, is giving AS virtually no reason to reason with him), and contemplate her current and future prospects in a practical rather than romanticized manner (i.e., daydreaming about her future with EC in the U.S. with a zebra at the background :love::lol:).  Since then, I've come to appreciate AS' character growth from the beginning and trust that KES will showcase AS take initiative and strengthen her fight not just for Joseon independence but for her and her loved ones' safety, future, and happiness (and judging by the end of the Ep. 19 preview, AS is back in her donned uniform and rifle better than ever!).

 

So, apart from the whole AS/DM ad nauseum spiel (which, again, I posted my thoughts above), I won't write off DM's lack of change in character trajectory and growth as a permanently lost cause yet.  As you mentioned, DM's trauma over his parents' fatal predicament and his mother's slashing not only has been mostly unresolved but also manifested in his lifelong decisions (i.e., working with the Japanese gang) and actions riddled with uncommunicative violence and brutal cynicism toward Joseon and his identity there.  All the while, he can't stop thinking about his first blunt encounter with AS as children right after escaping his parents' untimely fates and has formed conflicting sentiments (mostly obsession) over AS' social status and (to a lesser extent) judgment of him.  Let's not forget that DM has spent a majority of his life with more unscrupulous folks (with some exception of the mute Hotaru, who, as far as I can recall remains ambiguous in her own true thoughts about DM), whereas AS (and now EC and HS) has had constant love, communication, advice, redirecting, and support from her grandfather (though outwardly indignant), Seung-gu, and others whom she, in turn, cares about and trusts.  The only times that DM would reassess- and perhaps talk about- his past actions and thoughts would be whenever he had some exchanges with EC (and HS as the third wheel) in and out of HN's Glory Hotel, which, along with his recent near-death experiences, cannot suddenly inspire DM to recover from his unresolved trauma, let go of his conflicted thoughts/obsession over AS, renounce his violent ways and allegiance with the Japanese gang, and make other significant changes in his life.  After all, it took EC 16 episodes chronicling years of estrangement from Joseon Korea (with instances of flash-forwarding in the first two episodes), his almost fatal sending-off of HS' parents in Ep. 4-5, opening of his heart/understanding/trust/love with AS, and (in)direct talks with HS over their overall lot in life before he started letting go of the pain of losing his parents by accepting forgiveness from HS' mother, who, after 14 episodes of fretting over HS' stay in Joseon Korea out of fear of him knowing about EC's past connections with HS' family atrocities, finally swallowed her pride, knelt before EC, acknowledged the culpability of HS' family (namely, HS' grandfather), and begged for forgiveness.

 

KES has done her utmost in not only establishing the character background, growth, and trajectory of at least five major characters- AS, EC, DM, HS, HN- plus others amidst this complex, difficult historical period in Korea but also kept consistent each characters' own personalities and/or adherence to long-ingrained habits, belief, and/or life choices.  So let's see how KES will let the character/story arc and development of each character, including DM, unfold for better or worse, especially once they have to deal with the imminent Japanese annexation of Joseon Korea towards the end of the drama.

 

Once again, what a long post!:sweat_smile:

"Mr. Sunshine" Lee Byung-hun becomes alert in front of Kim Nam-hee

 

Source: HeraldCorp via HanCinema.net

 

photo998848.jpg

 

On the latest episode of the tvN drama "Mr. Sunshine", Takashi (Kim Nam-hee) approached Eugene Choi (Lee Byung-hun).

 

Eugene Choi witnessed a teacher from the school with Takashi at Glory Hotel. They looked like they were having a meal together, but it was actually an interrogation. When Eugene asked about it, Takashi said, "An official from Japan doesn't treat women recklessly".

 

Takashi claimed the teacher had caused instigation and Eugene asked if that was real. The teacher had said Japan isn't an outstanding country just because it was civilized faster and that no one could interfere with Joseon sovereignty, but Takashi was vicious and told her to get on with her missionary work.

 

Eugene told him, "You just made a big mistake. You won't be going to Heaven now". When Takashi asked when he was going to buy drinks, Eugene said, "When you're not busy. I'm busy because of you". When Takashi said he was going to let the teacher go, Eugene asked if he did that because he had plans for the night.

 

Meanwhile, Takashi was discovered to be part of the second most influential family in Japan.

Yes, I was. Was thinking, "Uh Oh!" as AS was studying the soldiers' faces, and I pictured her taking revenge. I'd take the GOT reference a step further and says that she, at times, also reminds me of the Mother of Dragons: How many men are under her charms and ready fight tooth, nails and lives for her? 3? ^_^

 

Hi @lilyphenix!  Now if only dragons actually existed back then so that they could burn down Wan Ik and the rest of the Japanese oppressors any of their (foreign, including Korean) supporters, thus potentially (but probably not) preventing the Japanese annexation of Korea in some alternate universe (in the words of Daenerys Targaryen, "Where are my dragons!?!?").  Oh well, I suppose AS' fanboys (and some, if not all, of the RA) will have to do in this sadly doomed cause...:cold_sweat:.

 

Hopefully the same won't be said in the series finale of Game of Thrones next year.  You heard us, George R.R. Martin and everyone else involved: we want an epic showdown, including one involving Daenerys' dragons and the undead Viserion!

@KDramaLogic Thanks for the good words and great posts, especially. MR.SUNSHINE is already causing the blood and stress level to rise dangerously, we don't need to rub more salt to (any) wound.

 

Anyway, @Ahpheng is around (you've got the name slightly misspelled) .. thanks to her for a good message today. I hope the forum situation (with IG posting) have been rectified.. it seemed to be quite a problem before.

 

Hi @rubie!  Again, I'm glad that we fellow Soompiers can be here to support you, especially now that we're approaching the end of Mr. Sunshine (we still have 6 remaining episodes, but still).  That, along with debates over the last scene of Ep. 18, is already doing wonders (not necessarily good ones) to our heart, blood pressure, and stress!:mask:

 

Btw, thanks for informing me about the misspelling of @Ahpheng, which I edited and corrected in my earlier post (sorry @Ahpheng:sweatingbullets:).

 

Lastly, I'm happy to see a huge turnout for the Mr. Sunshine wrap-up party, though (unless I was misinformed) it would have been awesome if LBH/EC and YYS/DM were able to attend as well.  All the same, the entire cast and crew- and KES, of course- deserve to have such a fun excursion after spending nearly a year (followed by re-shootings due to earlier complaints from K-nets over DM's "sympathetic" characterization as a Korean member of the Japanese gang/mafia and some historical inaccuracies) putting all their efforts into bringing to life this immersive, cinematic, and thought-provoking portrayal of the Joseon Korean era prior to the Japanese annexation.
