1. I've gotta say that the lady hotel owner has been exceptional on her role. Her looks, her dreamy gaze, her clothes, wow. I just love every scene of hers..

2. That scene between Eugene and the old man potter in the last episode made me teared up a bit. That acting there was classic Byung Hyun.. superb.

I read this on Weibo, written by a Chinese fan and just wanted to share it here. I know DongMae is not popular on this thread but still, following are some of his strengths:

 

Setting aside his Mafia and violent background, DM is not merely a brute guy, he is bilingual and is equally adept at swords and guns.  He is actually quite intelligent, he can remember things easily (the guys on the train carriage that he noticed missing at the harbour).  He is decisive and a fast thinker as shown at Jemulpo when he realised he has fallen into a trap. He tried to get his guys to move but when he failed to do so, he thought about the telephone. 

 

He has principles in the course of conducting his work and is charismatic at the negotiation table. Once he is insulted as a butcher, he bang the table and refused the job.  He has management and business development skills in security services, money-lending and running the flower entertainment centre. However he is also sensitive and considerate to the women he cares about : dressing Hina's wound, running stationery errand for his mute companion  and letting the comrade of AS go.

 

He seems rather forgiving to his band of subordinates, except for using them as sandbags to vent his frustrations, he dont seems to punish them for fail room searches and breach of command at the Jemulpo harbour. 

 

The most interesting of all, the writer of the above comment said that in the scene when the chamber maid came to exchange information for money, DM was having his meal, but there were no meat dishes. Seems like he is actually a vegan, perhaps he has an issue with eating meat being from a butcher family.

 

So above is the incredible list of his traits.

-----

The korean petition against the Japanese portrayal seems to be gaining traction at 27000 signatures (soompi just posted an article on it). So anyway, I just hope people just treat DM as a story character, yeah.

Thought the song used by the poster in this IG post blend so well with the Ae Shin Eugene scene. Really gives me the feels of the sad romance. Unfortunately it is only a part of the song. Would have loved to listen to the whole song.

Im not fluent in english. Where was EC? My thoughts about this. We only saw what they wanted show us. I think that they reveal a few scenes that were previously cut out to complete the story (sooner or later - they add flashbacks). DM said EC was in Jemulpo. 

DM changed his target to her leg (Aeshin) because EC wanted it and aimed his gun at him. Why? He wanted scary her and force her leave RA after this experience (RA is dangerous and u can be hurt or die in action). EC coudnt shoot myself (AS is woman he loves) but used DM.

[SPOILERS!!!][Mr. Sunshine Roundup] Episode 9 + 10

 
 
 
 
1. [+5767, -466] Wow it's really fun.... It's a masterpiece where you won't be surprised if it gets ratings over 40%
 
2. [+4430, -101] Righteous army night begins. Eventually, because of Captain Ae Shin they'll sync up and Lee Byung Hun will become Captain Joseon, Byun Yo Han is Joseon Stark, and Yoo Yeon Seok is Dong Mae Eye and they'll form righteous army avengers. Min Jung Widow, Moo Sung Hulk, and Kap Soo Strange will be back up. 
↪ [+263, -7] Crazy ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ
↪ [+134, -3] What is this comment ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ daebak ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ the comparison is daebak     
↪ [+175, -1] You are a genius
 
3. [+3792, -832] It had to be Lee Byung Hun. (t/n: They're saying it had to be Lee Byung Hun who plays the role of Eugene Choi) 
 
4. [+3008, -224] I feel like Kim Eun Sook's life work is 'Mr. Sunshine'. The immersion is also really good. More than anything, because the actors are so good at acting, it feels like you're in awe and more in awe. Lee Byung Hun is seriously, wow~~~ amazing. They made a drama into a high quality movie. Kim Tae Ri just seems like Go Ae Shin, she confuses me into thinking that her character existed in real life and she looks so good in hanbok. Today's ending was so sad ㅠ
 
5. [+1536, -104] This is really the best.. To the point where they can't make it better 
 
6. [+945, -11] The last part in today's episode where they asked, "This Joseon you're trying to protect, who is it for?" and when the A-frame carrier righteous army member said, "It's still my country I protect". I hope people will no longer watch this drama and say it's a glamorization of pro-Japanese and what not. Criticizing our own problems isn't a pro-Japanese glamorization or a colonial view of history. A true patriot isn't a person who blindly takes the side of their country but rather, it's a person who works hard so that their country walks on the right path. 
 
7. [+793, -44] Lee Byung Hun is seriously really good at acting ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ When he was getting revenge for his parents, his facial expression was really chilling...
 
 
 
 
1. [+1794, -49] Sigh... I feel like it's really the best drama... it's so fun 
 
2. [+968, -22] His acting where he was sobbing under his hat was daebak
 
3. [+861, -26] At the kiln site when Eun San told Eugene to stay the night and Eugene cried, seriously his tears ㅠㅠ Lee Byung Hun is seriously really good at acting ㅠㅠ The soundless cry made those tears sadder ㅠㅠ He did what the king told him to do, he also loved with Ae Shin, and also learned Hangul from Do Mi, let's stay in Joseon, where are you gonna go ㅠㅠ
 
4. [+849, -35] I got chills at the end!!! Mr. Sunshine is Lee Byung Hun
 
5. [+766, -25] Eugene - Sunshine, Dong Mae - Snow, Hee Sung - Star.... aka stupid, idiot, wuss 
 
6. [+402, -12] Kim Sarang was originally supposed to play Kim Min Jung's role of Kudo Hina. She quit because she was sick but I feel like Kim Min Jung is the perfect match.

I love this comment so much....and totally agreed with his definition of what a patriot is.

I have a different theory but it's more crazy. DM was in the army (Japanese?). Look how he moves in Jemulpo and looks for a good position to shot. He is trained and uses topography of the area. EC find out about his past and experience (he knew names japanese sergeants). EC was behind Aeshin showing signals (morse code or similar with mirror? he show up only for few seconds and hide) and aimed his gun at DM (she only looked at DM and coudnt see EC). We again dont see all scenes in Jemulpo. DM said EC he was not good with guns but he gave the perfect shot in the leg.

my fav is Hee sung. In the preview he told Aeshin to run to him and hide if things get hard:"

 

For me, HS is definitely catching up on EC.  I really like the way he is protecting AS, very different.  It is unfair for me to totally not like him because there isn’t much about him except his love for gambling and not having any ambition.  There is just a mystery about his true inner self which I hope we will get to see in the coming episodes.

Mr. Sunshine: Episode 10

 

by dramallama Dramabeans.com


Joseon is constantly changing, but some points of change have yet to fulfill the hopes of the abandoned Joseon people. Eugene faces the harsh realities of Joseon society that still treat him as a foreigner, a stranger in his own home country. Realizing his unfulfilled hopes, Eugene takes a step back and reconsiders his allegiances to a nation that never considered him as their own.

That LBH movie.... I still have leftover effects from watching that movie years back. It's so gory and sad.... the feel from watching it, just....mind-blowing.... when acting feels so real, the delivery of emotions get to you passing through any possible barriers, that's just pure satisfaction for viewer such as me. Except for those effortless action scenes, I personally feel LBH was underutilised in his hollywood movies, with regard to his actual acting strenght. A pity, that...
