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


Recommended Posts

I wonder what those final scenes means. One is Eugene looking at AS with fancy foreign clothes, another is DM giving her money, and another is AS holding HS, don't know if he's is dead.

Is the writer giving us glimpses of the final like she did in Goblin?

In regards to my last post/ warning, I've received some PMs requesting for clarifications.  I'm going to reply here so that everything will be clear for everybody and fan fights won't reproduce again.

This weeks episodes were great with both the action and story and have been my favourite yet.   There was one scene which really hit me and it was the ending scene when AS and EC hugged. The

So the ‘battle’ between the 3 begins.  The scene after HS found out about the rift between EC and DM looks like telling us what could possibly happen in the end.  It looks like the storyline is getting interesting and I am glad that we don’t have to see that japanese soldier again.

Okay those 3 different scenes at the end, could it be things that will happen or could happen? Either these are flash forwards or they are giving a glimpse of what it could be with whichever guy she ends up with? I also just realized it's almost like trying to pick America, Japan or Joseon.

When these three are together it's so entertaining but so much tension at the same time. I feel like I can't even call this a bromance because I don't even know what this is.

What do you think Ae Shin mean when she said to Eugene that she must save the geisha in red...

 

EC:  Saving one woman will not save Joseon.

AG:  I must save her. Because one day, she will become like me.

 

Let me correct that.

 

AG: I must save her. Because one day, I can become like her.

Thanks so  much :) Corrected.

Ae Shin has been following this ideal, romantic vision of patriotism... until now.  She can finally see in her own eyes the courage and bravery that were shared by her parents.  To save the geisha is to save the fate of not only a member of the Righteous Army that Ae Shin wants to be a part of but of the unbreakable heroic spirit of Joseon.  

 

Ae Shin has connected with the sacrifices of others on a personal level.  Later, with the conversation between Seung Gu and Eun San, the question was asked another way.  Why do we fight when we don't feel included?

 

GS:  I don't trust the King.  Both countries' legation got involved. I'm sure he'l get out safely. We are stuck between the Japanese and Americans.  The innocent Joseon people will take the blame.

(flashback LWI: Whether you live or die is up to the foreigners. Joseon has abandoned you).

GS: The king abandoned his own people. I abandoned him long ago.

ES: If you abandoned the king, why do you want to save Joseon?

GS:  To become a rebel.  I ned there to be a country to turn against.

ES (smile slightly): Yes, that's right. (Laugh)

Ep 7 

 

I do not understand what AS thought the meaning of "love" was when she offered it to him and what she thinks now. Now is deep heartfelt sincere affection. But  what was she thinking it meant before? Confused. Please help me on this.

 

The three man stand off among the lines of laundry was pretty funny.   AS will love who she wants, what is the sense of the confrontation.?

 

Just realized Eugene's boss understands Japanese. He responded to the official before the king, before there as a translation. He looks eurasian.

The tension between the three men is fun but I hope it won't last for too long. I'm scared to look into the meaning of the flashes we got in the end (especially for Hee Sung :tears:). Overall it was a very good episode and I can't wait to be tomorrow to see the next one.

 

Of course I was happy with the Dong Mae/Hina scene we got :wub:. I wonder what happened to her mom though.

She thought "Love" was comrades or "brother in arms", so when he said lets do love together she thought that meant he would be on her side (Helping Korea as a fellow member of the "rebels"). That's what i think she thought it meant.

AS met the girl with English teacher and she introduced the word "love" to AS, as something much better than getting a position in government. So she only knew that it's something better than that and if so, must be something really good. And then in the clothing shop, EC said something like, need to do it together, and harder than shooting a rifle, and riskier.

The actor is eurasian, as far as I know. He's wearing colored lens. But for him to understand Japanese I doubt it. I think the scene had interpreter behind each group (Japan and US) and interpreting quietly but continuously.

 

This episode was so much fun for me, I'm full of expectation where KES will bring us tomorrow. :D

Hey guys. I just started watching "Mr. Sunshine", and I must say that I'm not completely invested in the show just yet. I'm intrigued most by the tensions between the countries and the relationship dynamics between the characters, but to me, the love lines kind of fall short.

 

First of all, can anyone tell me why Kim Min Jung's character, the owner of the Glory Hotel, likes Eugene? Did I miss something? At what moment did she suddenly fall in love with him to the point where she is willing to threaten Lady Ae-Shin and suggest to Hee Sung that he forcibly marry her?  As for Eugene and Dong Mae, neither really appeal to me. I can't quite put my finger on why I don't really like Eugene. To be honest, it may be the actor who is playing him, or maybe it's just that I don't feel a lot of chemistry between the two just yet. I do like the backbone of their relationship though. He's someone who accepts and loves Lady Ae-Shin's real self, not the role that she's supposed to play as the dainty noblewoman who only knows how to paint and arrange flowers. This is in direct contrast to Hee-Sung's character who appears to see her as just that. He's a playboy too, and he only becomes enthusiastic about the idea of marrying her after seeing her beauty. He's being portrayed as a pretty superficial character thus far. I loved when Lady Ae-Shin called him out on his bullsh*t too. I also don't like the whole vibe that he had in episode 7 with the whole "I don't want to do anything with any ill intentions". It feels sinister. On the other hand, Dong Mae seems like he has some serious insecurities over his societal status, and I can't help, but question his infatuation with her. Why does he like her so much? Is it because she was the first person to have treated him like a decent person, or is it because she's someone that he can't have because of who he is? I also didn't like the whole scene where he like touches the bottom of her skirt and wouldn't let go for an extended period of time. That was not a good vibe either. All of this being said, I'm willing to give everyone a chance since there are so many unanswered questions and plenty of time to develop their characters and relationships. All I know so far is that I'm TEAM AE-SHIN. She's bad a** haha. I care more about her mission to save Joseon than any of these love lines put together. 

 

Despite the pretty weak love lines, I'm fascinated by most of the characters individually. Out of all the characters, I want to learn more about Hee-Na and Hee-Sung the most. Before it was revealed that Hee-Na was the daughter of the main antagonist, I just saw her character typecasted as someone who was just going to gas light the conflict between the three men who are interested in Lady Ae-Shin. I saw her character previously as someone who was just going to push that plot along. I'm glad that her role isn't so one dimensional. I'm so mystified by her mother's storyline and her husband's shady death. I love that she stands her own ground and is a strong female character here, too. Hee-Sung is interesting as well because despite what we've seen so far, there's definitely more to him. I suspect that his constant smiling and joking attitude is just scratching at the surface of his character. All of the girls and his extended stay away from his family could  be a distraction  from confronting his own personal conflict as a nobleman. He definitely is aware of his position and the potential sins that his family has committed. I think it's quite odd that when Eugene besmirches his parents, he doesn't even question it. He doesn't get angry, and he doesn't seem surprised. I might even venture to say that he may feel apologetic? Maybe that's me just hoping that I'll end up liking his character since I like the actor portraying him. I'm wondering what the writers have in store for his character. What are your thoughts?

I think she meant that maybe one day the geisha could become someone like her who can take up a more proactive approach in the quest to save Joseon.

Right after the trio ending scene, there three scenes I feel like I haven’t seen on the show yet with AS and each guy. Is it a little spoiler clip of what will happen in the future? Or did I miss something? Also the first one looked like AS was passing by EC in western clothing?

I think the dialogue is sometimes is vague in this drama and leaves something to the imagination.  The AS mix up with the meaning of the word "love" - has been explained to me that it was defined as something difficult to achieve and you have to do it together (by Eugene) - but really not clearly defined to me what AS was asking for or expecting to get from it. 

 

The remark you mention above that she makes, may mean that in the future, in a free Joseon, the young woman will be as privileged as she herself is. In other words each human is equal and equally valuable, at least that is how it should be and will be one day.   It was a strange scene because even though Eugene is concerned about the danger AS was in,  in his childhood he was going to be randomly murdered merely because his parents dared to try to escape inhuman abuse, so you would think he would be more sympathetic to the life of the  young woman.   He also had to be begged by the brother of the maid servant from being abused by the same sadistic Japanese officer.  So I don't get him very much. But they do describe him as having a cold heart.

@bedifferent Well as for me she might be telling him that she might be caught by the enemy one day and hopefully someone will be there to save her.  This is because she knew that girl is one of the fighters too.  (this is just my understanding)

Agreed to this

 

 

The final scene is getting so interesting especially after HS's dialogue.  In the current situation, knowing what's happening, what will be AS's next step.
