Congrats to Kim Tae Ri for winning the Best New Actress award for her role in Mr Sunshine. So happy for her.


But it is a bit strange that they gave 2 best new actress awards and 2 best new actors awards. They tied for the awards? Or is it different categories?

Yes! I am so happy! Mr Sunshine is the big winner at the 2018 APAN Star Awards! Congrats to Mr Sunshine production team and casts! It had been awarded best drama of the year at 2018 APAN Star Awards in addition to Acting Daesang for Lee Byung Han, Best Supporting Actress for Kim Min Jung and Best New Actress for Kim Tae Ri.



Extracts from the Soompi article.


“Mr. Sunshine” was the biggest winner of the night after being awarded “Drama of the Year” and the Grand Prize (Lee Byung Hun). It also earned Kim Tae Ria Best New Actress award.


“Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food” took home three awards, including two for lead actor Jung Hae In, and “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim?” and “My Ahjussi” both got two awards apiece, including a Top Excellence Award for IU and Park Seo Joon.


In his Grand Prize speech, Lee Byung Hun said, “I wanted to say a lot of things here so I wouldn’t regret anything, but my head is in a whirl. ‘Mr. Sunshine’ had so many people working on it, to the point where there was a B team and C team for the production crew. I worked with some amazing co-stars. There are so many people I want to thank. A lot of people had to help me achieve the miracle of looking even one year younger than I really am.”


He continued, “This drama had five main characters. Kim Min Jung, Byun Yo Han, Yoo Yeon Seok, and Kim Tae Ri – I learned from them all. I am proud of them as their senior, but I also realized that I can’t become complacent. All the supporting actors were main characters as well. I came to trust director Lee Eung Bok a lot and I think that Kim Eun Sook is an amazing person.” He also thanked his managers and the people who work at his agency.

‘Mr. Sunshine’ Lee Byung-hun wins top prize at APAN Star Awards


By Yim Hyun-su The Korea Herald // Photo: LeeByungHun IG


Actor Lee Byung-hun who starred in hit TV series “Mr. Sunshine” won big at this year’s APAN Star Awards, bringing home the grand prize.


Despite the category being one of the most hotly contested, the veteran actor managed to fend off competition from the likes of Kim Nam-joo from “Misty” and Jeon Seung-woo from “Life,” adding yet another award to his glittering career.


During his acceptance speech, Lee said many staff and actors worked together for “Mr. Sunshine” and that he had a lot of people to thank.


“There were five main characters and I learned so much from them and also was proud of them as their senior,” the actor said.


Lee laughed as he quipped, “With the effort to make me look even one year younger, we managed to pull off a miracle.”


The APAN Star Awards bills itself as the only awards in South Korea where all nominated works are from a drama-oriented TV network.

Life Bar episode 92 (Engsub): Gunner Jang talking about working with actress Kim Tae Ri, other guests were Yujo and Lady Yun (Hee Sung's mom)

Thanks for that - Gunner Jang is my second fav character (after Hee Sung). Hope he gets recognized for his sterling work.


Do you guys know Soompi has its own pop chart?  HCY's OST is No: 23  this week and there's a poll for favourite new track - help needed in voting for "How Can I Forget You", thank you very much :)

@rubie Thanks for the gifs of Ae-sin! I think she's so cute!


So I finally finished Mr. Sunshine. I am so sad that it is the end! I think it should have been longer! I enjoyed the entire drama! I think all the actors did a great job. I got to live through their eyes. I haven't seen a drama like this one before. So it is very special for me! I am so glad that I finished it. I think it's such a deep drama. I can't pick which actor/actress I like the most. I learned a lot from this drama. I am so happy! I saw Ae-sin and Eugene's relationship. I saw Goo Dong Mae and Kim Hee Sung grow into special people. I believe they both liked Lady Ae-sin. I think they both said, "She has Eugene in her heart." and "Let's just support her!" A lot of my favorite people passed away. I am sad the Kudo Hina passed away. I'm sad that her hotel is gone. When Goo Dong Mae took her to the sea I couldn't stop crying! And I hope she is lead actress in a drama someday. I think she's a great actress, Kim Min Jung. I would love to see more of her. I believe this drama made my heart beat really fast! 


I am so happy I got to see Lee Byun Hyung act again. I think I already said this. I have never watched his dramas. So I am happy that I got to watch this one. And I've only seen him in I Saw the Devil movie. I think he's such an amazing actor. I hope Mr. Sunshine did well! I can't wait to see him act again. I think I said this too. I believe he is one of my favorite actors! I think he acts with so much emotion! I think he is professional! I think he did very well with Eugene. I remember Eugene left Joseon for America. And I believe he came back to Joseon. I think he remembered, "I'm from Joseon." 


I was happy when he came back. I am so proud of him! I will never forget this drama. I think I may watch again. And I wanted to say that I enjoyed Kim Tae Ri's acting. I think she is very good female lead for this drama. I love her. I think she is so brave. Ae-sin is very brave. And I want to be her when I grow up! I love that she is a strong woman. I'm glad that she isn't weak. I'm glad that she didn't let someone else fight for her. I'm glad she fought for herself and her own beliefs.


I'm still crying. I think this drama really got my heart! I can't believe it's over! 


I know this is late! I'm sorry! I just wanted to share my feelings and thoughts. 


Thank you everyone! I think a lot of you pulled me back into watching dramas and sharing my thoughts and feelings here!

I hope some of you can understand me!  I had a lot of fun with this drama.


I wish I could have joined you all earlier, but I took a break! 


I should take that break now! :) I hope I see some of you in another thread one day! Thanks for reading my crazy thoughts!


I wish I could have shared more thoughts! I'm too busy crying. And my heart is so sad :bawling: I will never forget Eugene, Ae-sin, Yee Sung, Goo Mae, and Hina! I will never forget the rest of the cast! I think this drama is amazing. I need some tissues! I am so sad. I don't want to spoil it for anyone. I think the ending broke my heart! Yes, I need some tissues!




Me right now:



I'm going to crawl back in my hole! :bawling:

@writteninthestars09 There seems to be a worldwide problem with Youtube and they're trying to fix it. Most if not all the YT links posted here and elsewhere are showing the same error message. (Edit: it's fine now ^_^)


Anyway, here's a clip excerpt feat. the actor playing the tailor in MR.SUNSHINE, sharing his blooper moments with KTR & LBH.
