If not mistaken, a media editor (?) wrote an open letter to Eugene.. well, I think it's an editorial written about Joseon back then and the current South Korean situation.

 

It looks like an interesting article. Hope someone would post an English translation.

you can buy the DVD version, cheaper haha. 

 

I can guarantee that it's worth every penny given that the director is going to reedit each episodes with extra scenes.

I can’t help but read this. I’m trying not to read any spoilers. I became attached to Eugene and the others. I think they could have told us more about some of their stories. I wanted to know more about Ms. Kido. I think she was the daughter of Lee wan ik, right?

So I’m sorry. I think I said something ignorant. I said I didn’t know anything about Korean/Japanese history. This is true. I’m not saying one country is better than the other. I’m not taking sides. I don’t know how this drama ends. I want the Emperor of Joseon to make peace with Japan. I didn’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings. Sometimes I feel stupid. 

 

@rubie You still here? I think I was rude to you. I said, “I’m trying to take a break.” But you made me think, “ rubie is so sweet! She makes me want to finish this drama. And you made me want share my thoughts with you and everyone else. So I’m trying to finish it! I believe I got a lot of episodes finished! I don’t know anything about Kim Tae Ri. I think I am her fan! I think her character is so brave! 

 

@ everyone I think Kim Tae Ri’s character is my role model. I believe she wanted to save the Joseon that she loved. I believe she didn’t put love above her loyalty to her country. I think Eugene was torn. I think he was happy he escaped slavery. I think he also loved Joseon too. I was sad when some of the characters died. I kept saying, “Please turn good!” For example I wish Lee   Wan Ik apologized! I believe he killed the resistance fighters right? I will come back with more thoughts. I said, “It’s so hard! I really want to share my thoughts on this drama. I just love LBH and Kim Tae Ri’s acting so much!” 

 

@CarmarieHi. I think I was rude to you too. I think I was selfish! I said, “I don’t think you should reply to me. I said that on Ji Sung’s drama thread. I’m sorry. I wanted to explain. I tried to cut myself off from soompi. Then you said I belonged in that thread. And you made me cry. I cried because you were so nice to me. And I don’t have any friends. And that’s one of the reasons I’m taking a break. You made me remember how much fun I had. Thank you. And I wish you would share your thoughts on this drama. I really want to read your thoughts! Do you forgive me?

 

@rubieI’m sorry I’m mentioned you again. I think you made me feel the same way. I think you made me feel emotional. I think you said “Where was she?” I said, “She was wondering where I went?!” You made me feel like I could make a friend. I’m sorry  I’m getting so emotional. I know this is so off-topic. I bet I’ll get a warning. I hope I don’t get you in trouble with me! And my favorite actor is Gong Yoo. I became his fan after Train to Busan! I got sad. I hope he returns someday! And I made other fans of his upset. I did this on his thread and I’ve upset others! I have any friends who like him! I don’t have any friends at all! Hahahaha! I’m not trying to get your pity. Well, I was thinking of you and Carmarie. I think you two made me feel like soompi was a good place again. :) I’m sorry if I bother you. I will be back! 

I hope I’m not bothering anyone.

Not quite the translation but a gist of the article through the comments. It does start with such a heartfelt opening. It's just like how Kyle or GwanSoo (previously Joseph) would be writing to Eugene. :(

 

Much thanks to the Sunshiners on twitter ~

Mr Sunshine Episode 24 Recap (Series Finale)

Mr Sunshine Episode 24 Recap (Series Finale)

34

A Seating arrangement has been made below the throne at the king’s court. The officials walk in to get their pictures taken. Al the traitors are present and Lee Ji Yong (among the officials) says that the photographer is the grandson of Kim-Hyeon Seob, a former minister at the Palace. Hui Seung stands with his camera and the others ask why he is doing a petty job like this. Hui Seung says that there is no other honour than writing history. They tell him to take a good picture as it is for the history books. As Hui Seung gets ready to shoot, he says with a grim look that they will be remembered for generations. He shoots the photos.

At night, Deok mun lies dead at Hwawollu as Eugene removes the list from Deok mun’s pocket. He gets up as Dong mae walks in saying he knew someone will die in this room (Taylor was killed in the same room). Eugene says he took Hwawollu back for Dong mae. He says it may have some blood on it, but it is his. They hear more gunshots.

Ae-shin (in disguise) runs on the roof as she hears the gunshots to see what is happening. She sees the Japanese soldiers shooting down Haman, Mr Haengrang and the others and is shocked.

There is a review of the last episode and the drama itself at the end of recaps which I quite like. I had posted it below for your reading pleasure.

—————————————————————————-

Review

This was indeed a tragic ending for all the leads.

The scene with the human chain revisits the fact that people of Joseon are strong-spirited even years after the battle of Ganghwa. It goes to prove how the country managed to retain sovereignty for this long. Haman’s last words to Ae-shin was heart-wrenching as she was a mother-figure to Ae-shin.

It was a delight to see the 3 male leads back at the bar finally raising their glasses together. It is unfortunate that they didn’t get to spend more time with each other when the friendship finally blossomed between the 3.

Dong mae died like a true warrior. He fought till his last breath and was satisfied during his death as he managed to leave a mark in Ae-shin’s life. The scene where his apparition looks at his dead form and then disappears was well made.

Hui Seung’s character was one that evolved the most out of all the characters. He ended up recording history and managed to get it to keep it from falling into the hands of the Japanese. His importance wasn’t recognised much by the people back then but it definitely would have been recognised later on. He single-handedly shook up the Japanese with his words.

Eugene sure is Mr Sunshine, true to the title. His love was true and selfless as he always walked in the same direction as his ladylove. It seems like it was Joseon’s good fortune that Eugene ended up loving a patriotic Joseon woman, for he was the one who delayed Joseon’s fall by many days if not years. His character leaves a lasting impact and stands out even after the series has ended.The words on Eugene’s headstone were thoughtful and suited his sentiment. The last scene also emphasises that he was only a helper and never considered himself a patriot.

Ae-shin ended up paying a heavy price for choosing the path of being a patriot. Her ending shows the extent of loss a person faces when they choose their country over their loved ones. In a very small span of time, she lost everyone who cared for her and protected her all along. I wonder how much impact Dong mae’s words (spoilt noble fool) had on her life and if it was also a factor which made her want to prove herself to her country.

It was interesting how Eugene meets another figure from history- Frederick Arthur Mckenzie. The interview and scene with them taking a photograph (which exists in history) were well made. The brutality of the Japanese soldiers never fails to make an impact, especially in the scenes which shows Eun san, Hui Seung and Eugene’s death.

It would have been a consolation if we would have known some more things like, who found Hui Seung’s box that he had buried, if Ae-shin ever found out that Eugene was in prison for those 3 years, whose hands the nesting doll fell into and if Eugene’s letter was read by anyone, the situation in Joseon in 1919.

The Series promised us a story about the unsung heroes during Joseon’s struggle for freedom. It was interesting that the unsung heroes who stood out were the loved ones (Eugene, Dong-mae, Haman, Mr Haengrang etc) of the freedom fighters. They deserve more praise as its not their cause to begin with and they joined the cause because the person whom they care for feels strongly for it.

It was saddening that the story of all the leads ended more tragically than that of their predecessors. With respect to history and the timeline in which the series has been set, a sad ending was expected; but the finale did not leave a lasting impression as compared to its previous episodes. The series finale delivered only a sad ending for the characters and nothing more.

Series Review

The series got off to a slow start but it started picking up pace after the third week. This drama is deep-set and emotive. The show was initially criticised for discrepancies with respect to actual history. This made me curious and I read up on the country’s history during the timeline too.

The drama is set in the timeline when the Joseon slowly fell into Japan’s control. The makers have done a great job in showcasing how hard the patriots and citizens struggled to stop the inevitable. The brutality of the Japanese and the spirit of Joseon is depicted well.

Mr Sunshine shows life and the love story of Eugene Choi till his death. Eugene Choi’s characterisation is extremely impressive. He is truly the great and noble one as addressed by the other characters. His memory shines brightly and is everlasting like the sun.

The show showcases the life of people from various backgrounds in Joseon during the Japanese invasion, how their lives are impacted by it and their feelings towards their motherland. Since the show takes some time to develop we get used to Joseon’s atmosphere and the locals and it creates an impact when we see Joseon change during the invasion. The supporting characters grow on us as we continue to watch the series.

The plot is complex with a series of subplots. The romance plot also started suffering after a point of time as there was a constant wavering and sometimes selfishness in the character-sketch of the female lead. The series also kept seeing new characters that kept cropping up even when it came into the final week.  For a series that showed a lot of promise in the beginning, the finale could have been better. Despite that,

What makes Mr Sunshine worth watching are-

  • Dialogues
  • Bromance
  • Uniqueness of the Romance
  • Character sketches
  • Cinematography
  • Exceptional performance by the actors
  • The songs and themes

The romance in Mr Sunshine is unique and interesting with the language barrier acting as a bridge that contributes to the bond in relationship between the leads Go Ae-shin and Eugene Choi. It was refreshing to see a deep relationship with almost no physical intimacy between the lead pair, which is rare. The ironic part is that despite there being two other leads, Ae-shin’s patriotism towards her motherland seems to be the hindrance to their relationship. Eugene always seems to be struggling to make her love him more than Joseon.

The bromance in this series is the best I’ve seen so far. Despite the 3 leads liking the same woman, the scenes with the three main leads are extremely good. The rivalry was shown in a light-hearted and humorous way.

The cinematography is mindblowing  as it displays all the four seasons and the sets are picturesque.

The Series promised us a story about the unsung heroes during Joseon’s struggle for freedom. It was interesting that the unsung heroes who stood out were the loved ones (Eugene, Dong-mae, Haman, Mr Haengrang etc) of the freedom fighters. They deserve more praise as its not their cause to begin with and they joined the cause because the person whom they care for feels strongly for it.

Lee Byung Hun has given an exceptional performance in his role as the majestic Eugene Choi. His portrayal of the extremely intelligent American soldier who was born in Joseon does full justice to the role of Mr Sunshine. Eugene Choi is an unwavering and righteous personality who loves selflessly and his character stands out among the rest. He will be remembered as a foreigner who helped Joseon putting his life on the line to keep his lady love safe.

Kim Tae Ri has portrayed the female lead Go Ae-shin excellently. She deserves praise as the character involves various kinds of emotions to be brought on screen and she has delivered it perfectly.

Yeo Yeon Suk’s performance as the brooding and daring swordsman Gu-Dong mae is laudable.

Kim Min Jung has done a great job in portraying the calm, composed but fiery Hina Kudo who creates an impact with her performance.

Byun Yo-han has perfectly portrayed the role of Kim Hui Seung, a charming man who becomes an important addition to the freedom movement.

The supporting cast’s work is praiseworthy as they constitute the spirit of Joseon.

Patriotism is an emotion highly felt in the countries that celebrate an independence day. Now and then we need a series to show us how tough it was to fight off invasion and gain the freedom that we take for granted. Mr Sunshine did that by delivering this piece of work in the form of a tragedy.

@rubie thank you for sharing it here. I dont hang out in twitter much. It is good to see articles like this to reflect what Koreans actually think of the situation they are in. And you're right, it sounds like how Joseph or Kyle or Gwan Soo would be writing to Eugene :tears:

 

I made a google translate of the article.

 

Dear Eugene,

 

Are you comfortable in the distance?

You left and it took a lot of time. Shortly a week, a hundred years long. In the meantime, there were more things in Chosun. It was a little late thanks to your steps and muzzle that always led you to the right side, but Chosun finally broke down. Because it was decided direction anyway, it was not able to stop by any power. Rather, it has been done by the many powerful people of Korea for the purpose of getting to the network faster. The pain and the tragedy have returned to the powerless people.

 

With the defeat of Japan, the war ended and you had an independent homeland as you had hoped, but it was not by your own strength, so there were fewer tragedies. It has become divided into the South and the North by other powerful nations and has become two countries with different ideologies and politics. And there was war. This land, which was seen as nothing more damnable, turned into a scene of tragedy.

 

Fortunately, after the war, one of the two countries has written a remarkable growth and success story. There are a lot of places to make delicious candies and breads than 'French bakery,' and you can find shops that sell only Gabe, one of the 'Glory Hotel', one by one across the city building. In the center of Manhattan, you were proud to have a billboard selling the weird things we made. The exciting song that many of our boys sing together was chosen as one of America's favorite songs. A few days ago, there was news that Kyle had the eighth US dollar in the world, which he had switched from 'Hadrio' to a sidewalk. It would be nice if you could come and see it yourself.

Not everything is good.

 

Many of them also resemble the end of Joseon.

Still, we do not know what to do in front of the outside enemy, and it is brutally cruel to the inner stillness. Just as in those days when we had a faction that did not recognize the existence of each other by creating a partisan society based on the neo-classical justification, there is no room for compromise among people who are still ideologically oriented. Maybe it was the last chance Chosun did not go to ruin like that. The way of thinking and open attitude of the city is still disguised by moralism in many cases. Sorry, but unfortunately, most of that moralism is hypocritical. It is often the emotional and inflammatory slogans that determine the direction of discussion rather than the rational process of judgment based on a cool and scientific perception of reality.

 

In those days, China, which joined the path of destruction along with the Joseon Dynasty, underwent a dramatic process and now it is the only country in the world to compete with the United States. At one time, the ideology that led the nation to produce and distribute valuable resources and to make the distribution of the results evenly swept the world like a storm, all of which led to failure. For those who have since believed that the prosperity and development of the nation is achieved through the protection of civil liberties in democracy, the growth and prominence of China is somewhat embarrassing. Perhaps in the not-too-distant future, our people will be forced to choose between two different values systems that are not very compatible.

It was a heavy topic to convey my best regards.

 

In my opinion, it seems that Chosun relied heavily on other outside forces rather than victory in response to a proper system in a national crisis. In the future, I hope you will not repeat your tragic history and sad love story to other Eugene. Thank you very much.

Mr. Sunshine Season 1 Review

 

By GREGWHEELER The Geek Review
 

Despite it’s generic cheesy title, Mr Sunshine is a beautifully written 24 episode series balancing historical drama with a realistically depicted romance. Juggling deep characterisation, breathtaking cinematography and an exquisite eye for visual design, Mr Sunshine boasts an amazing technical talent to match its equally impressive storyline. As the episodes progress, so too does the evolving romance that takes centre stage, working harmoniously with the tense feud between the U.S. Embassy and Japanese in the heart of Korea where this tale unfolds.

 

The story begins in 1871 with an introduction to one of three key characters in the series, Eugene Choi (Byung-Hun Lee). Originally from Joseon before fleeing to America following a family tragedy, Eugene finds himself returning to his home town years later as captain of a US military expedition to liberate the town. While stationed in Joseon, he happens upon the Aristocrat’s daughter Go Ae-Shin (Tae-ri Kim) and what transpires from here is a slowly evolving romance that blossoms between the two.

 

As the episodes progress, more characters share the limelight including Goo Dong-mae (Yoo Yeon-seok) who quickly becomes a prominent figure in the show and does a great job fleshing his character out throughout the series. Although Mr Sunshine is a character-driven story first and foremost, the world building is excellent and throughout the episodes you really get a feel for the cultural differences and clashes between the Koreans, Japanese and Americans that play a crucial role in the development of the story.

 

With 24 episodes to boot and each over an hour long, there’s no denying that Mr Sunshine makes for quite the exhaustive watch but based on the 13 episodes we watched to formulate this review, there’s enough here to confidently proclaim the show remains an enthralling watch throughout. The show balances its drama and romance well, peppering each episode with light bites of humour whilst keeping the predominant focus on the growing tensions in the town and the character work which is flawlessly executed.

 

Spoiler

 

It’s worth noting too that the acting is solid all round although some of the American soldiers feel a little stifled and slightly uncomfortable in their roles alongside the excellent trio of Korean protagonists. Eugene, Ae-Sin and Goo Dong-Mae really bring the series to life and subtle lingering glances between each of them speak volumes, conveying emotion and mood in a perfect example of when less is sometimes more. This technique is used repeatedly through the episodes and for the most part, it works perfectly.

 

Aesthetically, Mr Sunshine is a beautiful piece of Asian television. The colour use is nothing short of masterful, the general composition of scenes show off the breathtaking vistas and the hedonistic choice of colours mixed with the generally impressive costume design all work harmoniously together to breathe life into this recreated world from early 1900s Korea.

 

Whether you’ll take to Mr Sunshine or not really depends on how much time you’re willing to invest into this epic Korean drama. If you like slow-burn romances or historical epics, Mr Sunshine blends these two genres together effortlessly. Although the story does unfold slowly over its 20+ hour run-time and at times the story does linger a little too long on some subplots, there’s enough here to confidently say Mr Sunshine is one of Korea’s brightest series released this year and well worth checking out.

 

 

Verdict - 8.5/10

The reason for crying after Eugene Choi all over the world is the second scenario, and first of all excellent acting LBH. His message without words, the emotions that he arouses and which move us, is pure magic!

 

That's why I called LBH 'Master Sunshine'!

While waiting for episode 10, here is the lyric interpretation for 5th OST, "Good day" from MeloMance, interpretation attempt is done by me. Apologize for the interpretation quality.

 

Silent breeze brings

you to me

So this is how you land

in my mind quietly

Is it a deep sleep or a dream

All world is you

Even a falling light hurts

would you know

 

It's a first time, such a good day

good day to hold you in my eyes

Fly in, shinning

Bloom In my mind, in my heart

like flowers

 

It's not just a tear

that I can't hide nor quit

Such a long, cold and sad story

Hope to embrace you in the end

Holding tight not to fall apart

you with my hands

 

It's a first time, such a good day

good day to hold you in my eyes

Fly in, shinning

Bloom In my mind, in my heart

like flowers

 

Beautiful, brilliant darling stay lovely

keep walking

The road you are on be always bright

Wishing from here

It's a first time, such a good day

good day to hold you in my eyes

 

Cry for the first time, with you

Missing you, longing for you

only because of you

only for that

 

 

 

 

Very nice translation :)

 

And I translated it into Polish. Are there any Poles here? :)

On LBH's recent instagram, first tag used is, 

 

#iamhurtnow

 

same line from Episode 11 when Gwansoo insulted Eugene indirectly. :P so that's why LMJ is saying she's about to cry? her response ends with laughing sound(ㅋ) so I'm sure she's fine. 

 

and hearing the sound, LBH is further away and talking with somebody else, and KTR is closer and fooling around with shadow. Her laughter is very care-free! :D

 

Thank you @3po3 for your nice words :)

An update to Brad Havens' rave review.  

Mr. Sunshine - a vibrant, romantic Epic from Korea radiates across a Global Stage

https://bradhavens.blogspot.com/2018/10/mr-sunshine-vibrant-romantic-epic-from.html?m=1

 

His thoughts after viewing the final 2 episodes. 

Spoiler

UPDATE: Okay, so it's a one season series running 24 episodes. I just finished absorbing what I witnessed in these final two episodes, and all I can say is:

Bravo! Wonderful. Amazing. When you consider that this is basically considered a series for Korean Television - albeit an ambitious one - the breadth and scope of the accomplishment is as impressive as Peter Jackson's original Lord of the Rings productions. Seriously. I stand by the "Asian-style Game of Thrones" comparison as well - action, intrigue, tragedy, romance, it's all there. Well, the nudity & graphic violence is out, but for what this story is, it really doesn't need all of that anyway.

Mr. Sunshine can only further cement Korea's place in the Asian Film Market as producers of top quality entertainment. Hollywood seems seduced by Chinese Investors these days - which is not a bad thing, either - but as Netflix continues to blur the lines between Cable and Feature Film Production, Korean-based Producers and Performers are proving it's time they get the International recognition they deserve.

 

@cynkdf credit to you for sharing his initial post.
