Thanks so much @mistymorning for the updates, that is a very nice article indeed. One that every MR.SUNSHINE fan would be happy to know about. Too bad the drama isn't highlighted as much after it ended but it's definitely one series that did very well -- production, performance and profit-wise. Contrary to what some people were saying..

 

Anyway, Chungmuro Crumb posted a lot of wonderful photos (in a 9 series of IG posts) of the MR.SUNSHINE filming site. Please check them out ~

 

Part 1, Hotel Glory
FINALLY I AM HERE.... Welcome to Korean Empire...Welcome to the glorious Hotel Glory...
Sunshine Land, Mr Sunshine filming location is located at Nonsan. It can reach via KTX Seoul (Yongsan Station) to Nonsan about 2 hours +1 hours bus from Nonsan Station to Nonsan Sunshine Land.
It's so beautiful, detail and will make you never move on from this series (at least in my case)

I am a theaterologist. In the profession for 30 years  So I have some idea about the art of scriptwriting.

 

Let me introduce you to my analysis of the "Mr. Sunshine" scenario, which I made after a few weeks from the painful watching of the last episodes.

The more I think about it, the more clearly I see that it has been badly broken. It was beautiful to a certain point, but then beauty was cruelly killed.

Viewers in many forums complain that they can not get back into balance after watching the drama until the end that they are sad and devastated. It's probably not good? Do not you think?

 

A distanced analysis of the scenario the „Mr. Sunshine” drama allows you to see a lot of illogicality and the lack of consistency of certain threads and characters. However, it discovers the most unnecessary cruelty with which she treated the 16 most important heroes.

Spoiler

 

3. Ae-sin's mother.912000582055743488

4. Ae-sin's father.

 

The death of these above is still understandable for the plot. But the remaining ones could have been less.

In my opinion the goal was intentional: first the viewer is to be delighted and to love the main characters and those from the second plan, and then the screenwriter sequentially kills them and often in a very bloody way.

16. Finally wonderful Eugene Choi!

 

I wondered about the alleged patriotic intention of this cruelty. Maybe she wanted to show how many beloved people sacred life for the Homeland. Hmmm ... Why are there grotesque words on the tomb of Eugen that he remained in Joseon for a picnic? Or sacrifice for others for the Homeland, or a picnic? Do not you think?

 

912005780034764800

 

 

Picnic?!

 

 

I'm a Pole. Our nation has also gone through a lot: the loss of freedom for 123 years, two world wars, communism, Aushwitz and much more, and yet in our patriotic films there is no such accumulation of bloody crackdown on positive heroes. Yes, some people die for their Homeland, but there are always others who remain in balance, and the viewer gets a portion of hope and comfort, and does not leave mentally depressed and disgusted!

 

Death scene Eugene. Would it not be more logical and safer for him and others if he were covered by a Japanese aristocrat and remained in the carriage, where were his countrymen, and ordered the Japanese army to move to the next train car and then unhook him?

 

After all, just as KES did, even one Japanese from behind the back Eugene could kill completely exposed Ae-sin! After all, Eugene, whom we knew would not do it!

 

And the issue of the last transmission, the alleged message about hope for the Koreans, and so the youth trained in Manchuria by Ae-sin. What was her qualification? She was just a sniper. Eugene was a soldier and would be able to professionally train Korean partisans!

 

And the love theme of Eugene and Ae-sin - wonderful, but a little funny. It was unrealistic to drag their restraint so that they would not even kiss each other! They were married, but not entirely because they were not formally married. What is this! Why did she waste this way !? Such beautiful Love, so wonderfully played and so stupidly deformed!

 

I have more notices, but I do not want to bore you. It is a pity this beautiful story. It could be much better and full of hope, but it is beautiful, but it causes most sadness, depression and emotional disorder!

@3po3 No worries, you deliver and explained in English well, no problem in understanding it.

 

912005780034764800

 

As  I wrote elsewhere.. I feel that the quote by Kyle on EC's tombstone.. was simply his way of not believing that Eugene died. But KES actually using it as the last words for him.. seems rather sadistic of her.

 

To me, the story ended at episode 21, in front of the US Legation in Japan. Even if we don't see any happy ending, at least they had a chance at that very moment (EC still serving jail time but with AS waiting for him in NY) and I would just leave it at that.

 

As revealed at the press conference before the airing.. KES took a break before writing the 2 final episodes. She's likely weighing various ideas on what would be the most "killer" ending for her drama, excuse the pun! :ph34r: Personally I don't believe she didn't even think about the obvious happy vs sad possibilities for the ending but she went with the most impact in the most unforgettable way ever.

 

Although it felt like a totally different story altogether (considering the background of the characters that we've learnt to know and appreciate), it's probably the ending that would resonate more with Koreans than anyone else.

Another nice article for drama Mr. Sunshine.

 

Mr Sunshine is the most replayed online clip for weekend drama for the 2nd half of 2018, by the report from Smart Media Rep(SMR) company who does online distribution for KBS/MBC/SBS/tvN/JTBC and other broadcasting companies.

 

(from the article https://entertain.naver.com/read?oid=001&aid=0010482795)

 

0010482795tableImage2.png?type=w540

 

From the top, the table here is for 2nd half Sat/Sun drama total number of replay.

 

1. tvN -  Mr Sunshine 165,979,226

2. JTBC - My id is Gangnam Beauty 50,864,543

3. JTC - The Third Charm 18,304,694

4. MBC - Hide and Seek 12,020,384

5. SBS - Let me introduce her 11,790,964

8. SBS - Ms. Ma, Nemesis 3,468,460

9. MBC - My love ChiYooGi 1,343,844

 

As you can see, Mr. Sunshine is indisputable top here. And SMR only provides contents for Korean site only(like navercast and kakao, tving ), so Netflix isn't included here.

Thanks very much @mistymorning for another nice article on MR.SUNSHINE. Such a good and credible article indeed, one that we likely won't see highlighted by K-ent blogs etc. To date the drama isn't just about the fluffy stuff.. it doesn't even have any fluffy-ness at all, till the last airing but it's been recognized as one of the most-watched & well-loved Korean dramas and for very good reason, too.

 

Please keep on highlighting and sharing more nice articles on MR.SUNSHINE which we would love to read. As fans, we may have different thoughts about the ending particularly but the drama had definitely proved itself as a top-notch production with sterling performances by the cast which should not be overlooked.

Yes, SMR gets contents from Korean broadcasting companies and provide them to VOD service companies in KR. Looking at their site, looks like most of major Korean VOD services use them.

Wow.. looking at the numbers, MR.SUNSHINE is actually being replayed a 100 million times more than the nearest drama at number 2. :o Impressive!

 

In the meantime MR.SUNSHINE is coming out with more cool merchandise, most likely these souvenir items are sold at the Sunshine Studios in Nonsan.

Thanks so much @mistymorning for the latest update, hope you've had a great Thanksgiving dinner. Looks like MR.SUNSHINE is moving up the party scale! :lol:Kudo HiNa hands down had the best wardrobe, ever! Ae Shin's silk hanboks were so pretty, too. And Eugene's smart and sharp military uniform.. who could forget such fabulous costumes. The visitors and tourists to the Sunshine Studios have been donning the 1900s dresses and suits at the filming location, recreating the drama moments for themselves. Pretty cool to see their IG photos, the fans sure know how to have fun.

Hello,  I am very pleased to see that the actors of Mr. Sunshine bagged so many awards, they deserved it! In the end, this makes justice of all the bad things that were said at the beginnig... sorry for ranting, still hurts. Only, I wished some prize for Byun Yo Han, because I think he deserves one as well.

Hello @marfisa, can't agree more with what you said. MR.SUNSHINE received a lot of flak in the beginning.. everything was just wrong in the eyes of the skeptics. Yet in the end, it proved to be a quality production that gets its money worth.. performance-wise, doubling the value even tripling it. However, even with the recognition and accolade of awards, some people will still find faults to nag because they don't want to see the truth. Just how the world goes around..

 

True, it'll be great to see all of the 5 leads winning awards. Apart from the TV CF with Lee Byung Hun, we don't see much of Byun Yo Han as he's been busy with filming and other priorities. Kim Tae Ri on the other hand have been 'hibernating' as twitter fans are saying. Who knows when we will see her at the awards or other related public events. Better still.. if all five of them could get together. Although.. off-camera, some of the drama cast still meet up for lunch/dinner gatherings.

 

However, Kim Tae Ri's ardent fan have been diligently finding news of the actress including MR.SUNSHINE to share. Big thanks & kudos to her!
