[Drama 2018] Mr. Sunshine, 미스터 션샤인 - Winner of Critics’ Choice Award for Drama category

Recommended Posts

Catching up... I was so pleased to read that letter by an university professor, even if translated by google... anyway I was like... stunned! He is soo cool! An Italian professor would never do that, they think too high of themselves (we often call them “barons”). Anyway, what a great teacher! He took the chance to tell something important to the youths, through something they can relate to, even if it is a tv show. I would really like to shake his hand. 


@rubiesomeone on twitter translated what they are saying in this video: “Pa-Deun-Jo fighting!”   That is the union of the nicknames Hina gave them: fool-moron-loser. They are so fun, really.

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 :)
