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

Recommended Posts

 Just finished watching episode 5.

 

Noted that TVN or the production house had addressed the feedback about the historical distortion by flashing a big disclaimer right at the start of the episode that this is a fictional  story based on some historical events and the characters and organisations are fictional too.

 

I think after this backlash, in future, Kim Eun Seok will stick to writing fantasy romance and romantic comedy. It is a pity as I am personally enjoying the drama and story.

If they didn´t put the disclamer before then I kind of understand the backlasch. Usually when the story is not entirely based on historical event there should always be a disclamer especially when it comes to such sensitive topic. So I think the production team was in the wrong this time.  

 

Hi everyone...I have been following the thread as a silent reader and have been enjoying all of your posts. 

So far I´m enjoying the drama and can´t wait to see what´s in store for us in the future. :D

Agree that they should have done so right from the start and could have avoided all the backlash. 

 

But it seems now there is some new feedback that the English subs are different from the dialogue in Korean. Maybe some of you who are conversant with Korean can let us know if the English subs in Netflix reflects the dialogue or not. Feel a bit ‘cheated’ if the subs are not correct. Sigh :mellow:

 

Had they changed the name of the gang from Black Dragon Society to Musin Society instead? Or are they referring to a new gang? Like it is not confusing enough to viewers.

Omo... this last scene..beautiful.

Dong Mae looks dangerously handsome in the scene with Ae Shin.

Yes, he does... but due to the music, this scene kind of announces something tragic and fatal. Moreover, she is wearing a red dress which is a bad omen. Red is often associated to love, sex but also to death. To me, the scene contains all these elements.

 

@Sarang21 I am glad that you are here on this thread. :wub:

Such a sensual scene!!crazy monkey  This underlines how much GDM is attracted to AS.

GDM is such a tragic character... from the start, the writer is giving us the impression that he will die for AS. 

 

@alekaonu thanks for the compliment!! I'll write later about KHS by the way.

I agree with this post completely! This has been such a tragic and sensual scene! I love how the writer protrayed hiw much GDM is desperately holding on to the beautiful lady that could never be his. I also feel that it allude to the future struggle of trying to protect the woman he loves

I didn't expect the focal point of the investigation to switch over to the lost gun this easily.  Eugene is obviously helping to bury the case for Ae Shin's sake as well as his own.  I guess it could happen in this unstable time where there is no true governing body for Joseon.  A little hard to believe still.  Plotwise, I like that we get back to Eun San, Seung Gu to eventually introduce more of the Resistance Army.  I also like that Ae Shin is shown a little lost in her lone wolf fight as her effort is plagued with no support.  Now that her identity is discovered by Eugene, she can't no longer continue to be operate as the fearless fighter that she wants to.  It's a good thing for Ae Shin who needs to see that the battle is long and treacherous and that alliance is not overrated.  I actually like as much as Eugene is surprised that Ae Shin offered to walk with him.  Ae Shin, proud and noble, has always seem a little disconnect from DM and Eugene's sensibility.  I like the uncertainty in her gaze and actions now.  She's learning quick.

@bebebisous33 always my pleasure to share a thread with you and read your thoughts as well as @bedifferent's too!!

 

I honestly love KES her writing and the characters her actors breathe life into are always so rich and I am never disappointed.  I hope she never allows others to hinder her in any way, from following her heart or her creativity.  I think the fact that she is always looking for new ways to express herself and her talent makes her one of the best to me...

 

I think AS is stunning and it's not just the actress's beauty which is amazing but even more it's the way in which she holds herself like a Korean version of Joan Of Arc.  She is focused on following her heart and protecting what it is she believes in and she is a quick learner.  3 men all different yet all mesmerized by her and each affected by her no doubt.  She is a bold beauty with a kick butt attitude and she isn't afraid to give it right back and quickly.  It's as if her comebacks are released faster than a bullet and she knows and watches everything around her like she is always in a defense mode.  Who doesn't want to be caught off guard...

 

What I love most is the way in which no matter what danger comes her way there is a strong sense of calmness within her and it's her eyes that speak a language all their own.  It's this tense yet so unusual way in which no matter which of the 3 men she is with they all see something attractive within her. 

That stands out and makes her not only unique & interesting but worth knowing and having...

Just delurking to see how much I love the scene with Aeshin and Dongmae. Second lead syndrome to Dongmae. Our Chilbongie is going to break hearts once more with his one sided love.

 

I love the holding her shirt scene which holds sentimental to their past, and the moment he fell in love with her.

 

His character already spell tragic so I'll be packing tissues to prepare for it.

Agreed you're so right... Passion kind of chips away at those numbers until all you're able to see is their amazing chemistry...:blush:

@Ahpheng  One thing's for sure your posts and talent sure have been missed!  So thankful you're back!!! :heart:

I totally agree, I actually don't even sense their age Gap when they're on the screen! Love how he's slowly opening up and showing his feelings for her. He's conflicted but at the same time he can't help himself :wub:

I have to say... this show is growing on me. The way the entire series is shot feels more like an extended movie than a TV series. They have paid a lot of attention to elaborate details and ensured hiring properly experienced actors for the roles. Most of the time in the past, I have noticed some actors acting foreign roles while speaking the wrong language or having poor pronunciation and accents, but in this series, they actually got the actors to speak in believable accents. .... very well done indeed.

Hi all! Have been lurking on this thread for quite long.

Eugene : I'm worried about myself.

 

Can someone explain what he meant ? Is it the thing I'm thinking about ?

I think he is now worried about her safety, since he realized he has feelings for her.

 

Also, they are from opposite camps, so he is also worried that he will not be able to do his job well. For example, he may need to arrest her one day, and he can't bring himself to. 

 

So he is "worried about himself" because he will be "worrying about her"... though he did not say it. I think she knows. 

 

There are many things "left unsaid" in the writer Kim Eun Sook's drama and scripts, a lot of things are left to the audience's imagination. Also, this old-fashioned way of writing has won her many fans... me included ha ha ha

 

I'm watching this every episode and even signed up for Netflix since ep 1 so that I can watch it immediately on Saturday / Sunday night.

 

I find the Ae Shin's character very similar to old Hong Kong or Chinese martial arts heroines, modest, upright, conservative and yet feminist. Kind of like Louis Cha / Jin Yong novels. 

 

LBH is too manly and not too "romantic", unlike GY in Goblin... I still find myself charmed by him and not the second leads! Though they are doing a great job acting-wise. 

 

Hee-Sung's romance with Ae Shin is so weird. He is so weak and frivolous, while Ae Shin obviously loves a man who can fight with his hands and aim with a gun! As much as I love Byun Yo-han and his acting skills, I can't love this character of his! 

 

Goo Dong Mae is handsome but I just can't fall in love with someone on-screen who is crazy violent and can't control his emotions. Actually, I prefer his clean-shaven look like in that doctor role of his in the past :wub:

 

The cast is excellent as everyone has commented. Director is also amazing. However something is lacking, I don't know what. Still waiting for the magic to happen.
