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

Recommended Posts

March 21, 2020 - It's nice to see both Lee Byung Hun and Kim Tae Ri on this (movie) survey list. Up and rising KTR is also included on the drama list. While we may not see them in a drama again and obviously Season 2 is impossible for MR.SUNSHINE, we can still hope that EuShin will be able to appear together in a movie instead. One day.. we will SEE YOU AGAIN. mrs.jpg

Drama 'Mr. Sunshine'
"Goodbye comrades, see you again in an independent homeland."

 

A Season 2 for MR.SUNSHINE would be perfect .. except that it is also IMPOSSIBLE. :wacko: #SeeYouAgain :tears:

-tvn drama Mr. Sunshine
* Gun, Glory, Sad ending

A drama that can be considered a life drama
I was able to feel the sacrifice and patriotism of the soldiers ...
Whatever they sacrificed, we feel that we have been able to live well
Aeshin and Yujin Choi were so sad
Dong-mae, Kim Hee-sung, and Kudo Hina were all sad
A sad drama.
Eugene Choi's last train scene is always a heartbreaking scene ...:tears:

An introduction to K-dramas


Following the success of 'Parasite', Daniya Jawwad reviews four K-dramas - all available on Netflix - which offer a further exploration of Korean culture

 

By Daniya Jawwad Cherwell.org


On the 9th of February 2020, history was made at the Oscars when Bong Joon-ho’s Parasite became the first ever non-English film to win ‘Best Picture’. However, that wasn’t the only award Parasite took home: the film went on to receive awards for ‘Best Director’, ‘Best International Feature Film’ and ‘Best Original Screenplay’, an unprecedented feat. As a result, more and more people find themselves curious about the South Korean film and television industry, with special attention being paid to K-dramas (or Korean television series), which have attained fan followings all over the world. Given the popularity of Parasite, here are four K-dramas (all available on Netflix) that should definitely be on your “must watch” list.  

 

MR SUNSHINE

Don’t be deceived by the name. You need only to watch the first episode to discover that this series’ preoccupations are anything but sunny. Set in the late 19th century, the series focuses on the events leading up to the Japanese occupation of Korea and the gradual dissolution of the Joseon dynasty, which precipitated drastic social change. At the centre of these chaotic times are Choi Yoo-jin/Eugene Choi (Lee Byung-hun) and Go Ae-sin (Kim Tae-ri), whose lives are intricately connected. Eugune Choi is a Joseon man who fled to the US as a child and, having grown up now, is a part of the US Marines. He returns to Joseon as part of the Korean expedition in 1871, accompanying an American delegation for a simple mission. However, this one mission spirals out of control when he becomes increasingly involved in the secret life of a Joseon noblewoman and, soon, past traumas from his childhood resurface. 

 

One of the main reasons I enjoyed Mr Sunshine was because of its portrayal of women. Usually the women in K-dramas don’t have much agency but this show changed that and many other K-dramas have followed suit. Go Ae-sin, for example, is frustrated at how, being a part of the aristocracy, she can’t help her fellow countrymen against the growing presence of foreign forces. She decides to fight her helplessness by secretly taking lessons in marksmanship, allowing her to become an asset to the independence fighters. As such a game-changing example of the genre, Mr Sunshine would make for an excellent introduction into K-dramas; you might even recognise Lee Jeong-eun, the housekeeper in Parasite, who plays a supporting role.
