Upcoming tvN drama “Mr. Sunshine” has revealed new posters of its main characters.

 

“Mr. Sunshine” is a historical drama that will tell the story of a Korean man who boarded a warship to the United States in 1871 during the Korean Expedition and then returns after he gets stationed in Korea as an American soldier.

 

“Mr. Sunshine” boasts a stellar cast and crew. Many popular actors will appear in this drama that was written by Kim Eun Sook and directed by Lee Eung Bok, who previously worked together on hit dramas  “Descendants of the Sun” and “Goblin.”

 

The posters of Lee Byung Hun, Kim Tae Ri, Yoo Yeon Seok, Kim Min Jung, and Byun Yo Han give viewers a glimpse at their characters who may not have been recorded in history books, but were heroes who rose in the cause for justice and fought for the independence of Korea.

 

Lee Byung Hun will appear as Eugene Choi, who was born as a slave in Korea and then grew up in the United States. In the poster, he looks charismatic as he points his gun up in the air. The words on his poster say, “Turbulent times. I thought that I had gone to the end, but I may have to go a bit further. One more step. Into the flame.”

Kim Tae Ri will portray Go Ae Shin, the daughter of a noble family who has an innocent appearance and tough mind. In the poster, she is wearing a pink gown while pointing a rifle at someone.

 

The words on her poster read, “The age of romance. If it’s a flower that’s going to bloom then fall, I want to become the hottest flame.” Her quote is a play on words, as the word for “flower” is included inside “flame” in Korean.

Yoo Yeon Seok holds onto an encased ornamental knife in his hand.  He will appear as Goo Dong Mae, who was born as a butcher then returns to Joseon as a president of a chapter of the Black Dragon Society. His poster says, “The age of loss. I shot a blackbird so it won’t fly again.”

Pointing a fencing sword at someone, Kim Min Jung looks fierce and confident in her poster. She will appear as Kudo Hina, the CEO of Glory Hotel, which she inherited from her Japanese husband. Her poster says, “An unbelievable time. There are things that can’t be cut with a knife like a righteous, burning mind.”

Byun Yo Han will portray Kim Hee Sung, an unemployed man who just returned to Korea after studying abroad in Japan and is the suitor of Go Ae Shin. He lets out a hearty laugh with a pipe in his mouth. The words on his poster read, “A cheerful era.  If you’re in danger, run here and hide. If you’re the reason why I came to Joseon, it’s an honor.”

A source from the drama said, “The ‘Mr. Sunshine’ posters symbolically express the individual ways that Lee Byung Hun, Kim Tae Ri, Yoo Yeon Seok, Kim Min Jung, and Byun Yo Han are living in the rapidly changing Joseon. Please look forward to the acting of Lee Byung Hun, Kim Tae Ri, Yoo Yeon Seok, Kim Min Jung, and Byun Yo Han in ‘Mr. Sunshine’ that will convey the most painful confession of modern history in the early 19th century.”

 

“Mr. Sunshine” will premiere on July 7 at 9 p.m. KST and air 24 episodes.
