Recommended Posts

I think.. from Google-translate.. in conjunction of Liberation Day (8/15), tvN is airing MR.SUNSHINE eps 1-12 back to back starting from 1.30am(?). Stories of soldiers not recorded in history. Feel free to correct me.

@miracle23Yes. Lee Van Ik, Royal phisician - japanese origin, poison emperor, Hina... This can be another thing that can lead to the execution of LVI.

 

@saturn AS, letter, blaming herself after Joseph death (crying scene). I like it because this is one more step in AS growing up. EC discovers that Joseph was a supporter of the emperor (reason EC) and could die sooner or later? He doesnt blame her. It would calm her soul.

 

AS parents - they had a private wedding (photo) but not official (custom)

From the IG of actor Bae Jung Nam / Choon Sik (pawnshop co-owner)

 

From the look of the costume, it appears like the filming is getting into fighting/battle mode, or perhaps, the production almost done for the finale. The cast and crew have been filming in super hot weather, a treat of cold refreshments is most appreciated!

edit:

theory is out of date :)

 

I have a impression that EC mother could be still alive and he will find her accidentally during the war with Japan... She escaped somewhere north of the country? We didnt see her body and she could plan to throw the shoe into the well. Choi's family could be shocked by the incident and didnt even look for her body in the well. They moved to Hanseong. EC regain his biological mother after losing his stepfather? 
That could be a good plot twist. 
Of course, this is just a theory.

This theory is interesting but impossible as the Kim family old servant had buried EC’s mother in the mass grave and gave her hair pin which they found on her body back to EC in the earlier episode.

Oh, I forgot about something, I am getting older (alzheimer? :)) or too much sunshine :)

 

I wonder what happened to the hairpin - he should give it to Aeshin as a gift.

I believe Eugene will hold on to the hairpin as it's the only belonging last worn by his mother that he has. It symbolizes her death as the closure he's looking for. Even if it was just a simple wood carving by a little boy, he would have preferred keeping it than the pricey but burdensome ornament that only reminded him of that fateful day in Joseon. Though it took years, it's probably a little relief that he gave it back to the owners to deal with what their family did to his.

I see that there are so many theories about what might happen, but are we so clear about what has already happened in the last episode? I am not.

Several people have mentioned that the relationship between AS and Eugene entered a new stage: they seem to have agreed to enjoy each other without thinking that this will lead to any marriage in the future. I have two questions:

 

First, what made Eugene and As to change their minds about their relationship? The previous episode made it clear that Eugene wanted to leave to allow AS to forget; AS decided to cut ties with him to protect him. It is true that these are not really good reasons, but they are still reasons that help us understand why the characters behave the way they do.

 

Second, can somebody more versed in Korean drama explain how AS and Eugene understand their relationship now and what they expect out of it? By now a few characters, including AS and maybe Eugene, acknowledged that these two relationship is against the moral customs of the period. So how do they think about the new stage of their relationship? Just enjoying each other presence and endangering their lives?

 

In short, in episode 12 something happened that changed our characters' mind and allowed them to have new hopes about their relationship. So what exactly happened?

 When WI said he is planning to make the doctor as a royal physician. I think he is planning to kill the emperor. I hope HN catches this and be cautious about it or warn the emperor or the minister she's working for. Since that the minister is also the one who gave out orders to the righteous army, does this mean they are not working for the emperor but for the minister himself? 

 

Good point. :)  Emperor Gojong did die unexpectedly from what many suspected poisoned by the Japanese.  The minister keeps his actions separately from the emperor’s knowledge given the high level of espionage going on in the court.  The resistance has many people funding or guiding them... Lord Go and the minister will need to pass on their fighting to a new generation, that’s where HS will take over.   His influence over the police and other high officials will come in handy.  All thanks to his grandfather.  Debts repayed.

The man who Dongmae met at the temple is one of Aeshin's father's comrade, one of the 4 men in the photo. He had brought Aeshin's parents' ash to home. He was also at the train to Jemulpo wearing straw hat on the day Aeshin was shot. I guess, he came to say hello to his old friends and make up mind to revenge (kill Kim Yong-Ju, the betrayer).

 

I don't think Aeshin's mother was a slave. In that period, studying abroad was very expensive. She must be from noble family or rich family too. And her mother's class has never been mentioned in the drama, so it's not any issue. 

 

In Ep12 we saw some random scenes, such as Hui Sung visits the police officer and the post officer to return the money, and Dongmae visits the temple. I'm pretty sure all those scene will be connected to the new incident (Dongmae arrested) in ep13.

 

One thing I'm most worried is, Aeshin brought out the Joseph's letter from Wan Ik's house, so Wan Ik couldn't read it. Actually he is suspecting Joseph as a helper working for the king's side. But the letter was just saying hello to his son(Eugene). Wan Ik may misunderstand Joseph and kill him, and it may cause Aeshin to blame herself.
 

 

Both resistance fighters (Ae Shin’s parents comrades) could be hiding in the temple.  Think he’ll be one to reveal to Ae Shin DM’s visit and perhaps change her mind toward him.   Families must be well off enough to send their children to study abroad as in the case of Ae Shin’s dad.  Her mom could have been living there where she met the young Go.  Kim Yong-ju betrayed the group for money so his background is on the poorer side.  Guess this is to say the ragtag group was made of people from all kinds of social class.

 

Joseph’s death may be pending.  I’m trying to see how this would not cause an international incident for the Americans unless Lee Wan Ik sets up Dong Mae to take the fall.  There’s possiblity that he’ll send the Musin Society to go after the missionary with the false claim that he is part of the resistance.  The misunderstanding will cause a rift between the Japan ministry and the for-hired Musin society in how they are used and mistreated perhaps?

@Emily Wong It's part pre-produced and part ongoing filming. If not mistaken,  when aired in July, they've done more than half of the 24 episodes since filming started late last year. What they're filming now (perhaps, almost done) is the final episodes. KES herself was finishing the script for the ending when MR. SUNSHINE had the press conference in June. So, it's not too stressful for the cast and crew to catch the dateline as they have the earlier episodes all set to go, only that it causes a bit of problem when there's the controversy with the storyline that netizens complained & petitioned about.. the need to edit when they've done the scenes, etc.

 

Move to the Left

@Emily Wong When the long trailer dropped in..late June?...they had already filmed most scenes up to episode 12. You can tell cause a lot of the teasers we saw in the trailer are still playing out. Since 13-14 aren't out yet, I'm not sure if any scenes will be familiar. But I suspect so cause there's a scene with Dong Mae and Hotaru from the trailer that I haven't seen yet. So either it's going to be in this coming week or they cut it. 

 

And as of last week, they were still filming some stuff cause YYS mentioned how it's been really hot for them filming in the summer now. How far they are in the story filming wise, I'm not too sure.

 

My friend pointed out to me that Ae Shin also had a moment where she was talking with her late parents (episode 10) so I went back and watched the scene and made a gifset of the parallel between her moment and Dong Mae's scene at the temple (episode 12). You can see the full thing here. I actually giffed the temple scene a few times cause I love it that much.

Am I the only one dreading watching the upcoming episodes and at the same time anticipating it? And saturday is still 3 days away haist....

@tzupitzupi

I interpret it as casually dating and getting to know more each other, or it can be a Carpe diem type of dating hahahaha

@elfvanvan I think it's a 'carpe diem' type of dating too. I am just worried the riding to the sea scene is after AS finds out her grandpa asks HS to take her, and the riding trip is their last 'date'. 

 

@rubie your 'box sitters' gif is Jjang !!  I am waiting for more ...thanks.
