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

Recommended Posts

Let's set aside all the negativity, it can't be helped that biases can override simple drama enjoyment. There will always be contrasting characters and I think KES managed to create such a strong main cast, not just one or two but five of them with many others supporting the plot line. Once the characters were set, whether they're good or bad or in-between, ultimately viewers will start to feel and root for them. I think this is hard to explain, because personal logic and preferences can differ a lot on a lot of things.

 

Anyway, the  leads (particularly Eugene vs Dong Mae) have the most critical responses.. at DB, here and everywhere.. due to the characters and to a lesser point now, due to other factors. It can't be helped as everyone's love and logic is different because I feel that way too, sometimes. My apologies beforehand as I meant no offence to anyone.

 

Found this quite a funny imagination in a good way. :) Obviously EC will not be shot (yet?) and he will not leave Joseon again but.. but.. what if AS didn't miss and really hit him instead. If the RA and ES were supposedly only testing her loyalty yet completely miscalculated and eliminated the one person who could help them, wouldn't that be a "kicking-myself" disaster :wacko:.. not to mention that they've already stumbled before and EC saved them.

@mistymorning wow scary custom :)

 

I still dont like behavior HS. I would not like to marry a guy like that. He want run away not resolve problem and using AS. I would do anything to resist this marriage. I would rather to live in the forest like an AS master? :)

Until recently, he was against marriage (he knows that she loves another man) and now he changes his mind.

 

I hope this is a temporary weakness and he will withdraw the offer after some time.

For HS, it is a love at first sight, so he was against the marriage until he saw AS's beauty. Then he got to know her, seems to admire her for her spirit too which is fortunate considering it's arranged marriage. But, AS met Eugene before and already knew Eugene was confessing his attraction to her, she was thinking about Eugene right before Heesung was coming to meet her with flowers. So... such is a fate. I'm sure without Eugene, AS would have married HS esp. in those times.

 

New making for Eugene-Aeshin BTS(really short) 

<Eugene and Aeshin looking at script together>

EC: (script says) nod while grinning <he grins like emoticon>

<EC did it twice>

<AS burst out laughing seeing EC grinning>

EC: one more time < AS laughing out loud>

EC doing the scene again and AS can't hold her laugh

Dir: Cut

<Monitoring scene>

EC: why..

AS: don't know...

EC: excited( alone).. hihi

<next scene>

EC showing a map to AS 

AS: don't you know how to unfold the map? (joking and laughing)

 

In the scene when they try to hide from the gun shot

1st rehearsal: EC holding AS, off the light and carrying her to duck behind the chair. but light didn't go off. (Dancing? 

2nd rehearsal: Off the light and duck successfully), but EC saw unexpected camera.

EC(thrown off by the sudden camera): wait a minute. What are you taking from there? (Curious EC)

 

2nd video ends with saying in real take, they did it without any NG in 1 try.

 

@rubie and others, I have to say that even Korean native like me had to focus on this drama while viewing. This drama doesn't move stories not just by lines, but how they acts and shows thru with their eyes, ways to turn their heads, how their voices change, the movement of fingers. For me that's why I can watch this drama again and again, enjoying and finding new things in each viewing. It's a magic, and I'm mesmerized already, but for some I guess it'll take time (or just will not take). I'm glad I found a place to enjoy this drama together, with all of you. Thank you.

@mistymorning I realize that HS fell in love with AS. If he had not waited so many years, they would have been married. The customs were on his side.
However, I dont feel chemistry between them. They differ in character and approach to life. Eugene fell from heaven like a blessing. 
She suffered so much, and probably more will await her so I would like the fate to smile on her and eventually she was with the man she loves.

 

@rubie I try to be objective. Most of the main characters are gray. They have advantages and disadvantages

@mistymorning I registered here because site seemed to me professional and focused on providing valuable information. Discussions are also interesting. Not to mention that I learned a few valuable things from few people. 

I try to avoid quarrels and conduct a conversation in such a way that it aims at transferring knowledge and exchanging information.

Of course, some of the posts are speculation due to the fact that we try to predict events - this is a form of fun. As I said before, I try to be objective. I often write: this is my opinion or my thoughts. Everyone has the right to their own opinion and does not have to agree with me.

Koreans or Asians have an advantage because they know customs and I can make a mistake or have a Western point of view and I dont understand certain things. One time better and the other worse despite my efforts.

Guys what do you think of this pic posted on goblin_mrsunshine Instagram. They were shooting the final episodes when it was hot - hence that small fan in LBH's hand. From the house in the background,does it seem like Eugene is back in America? Or is this just a location picture with a modern house in the back?

@ ahpheng Oh come on! Dong Mae basically holds the life of an innocent girl to ransom and he also threatened Eugene when Ae Shin went to make the first payment (he said - ''that girl and the person she is protecting by not revealing his name''). I apologize and I know your C-strips are meant to be funny and light hearted but I can never see anything romantic in Dong Mae's manipulative and obsessive actions regarding AeShin. 

I would suggest you don't talk about the character that you dont like. I basically come into this show because of Dongmae. Have it not be him, I wouldn't watch this entire drama at all.

 

DM is a very sad character and doesn't need anybody else to step on him further.

I am not sure if anyone mentioned this before. I am having sudden thought about Hotaru and HN. What if Hotaru is the said step-daughter. The way HN is being cautious when bringing Hotaru into her room, as if Hotaru is someone that should not be roaming around in public for some reason. I don't think the event with the Japanese officer would be that serious for Hotaru to be in hiding. Maybe it is ok for her to be going out to read fortunes when WI is not in town. But now that even both him and the doctor are, perhaps it will be dangerous for Hotaru? Is she the stepdaughter that ran away with the stepmother? Since HN bore quite a number of scars, maybe the husband was not even nice to his daughter? And maybe this is where DM came into the picture. HN paid him to protect them but specifically left out details about Hotaru's background to keep her safe? Or does he actually know everything? I feel like having a field day for speculation today. Maybe I should channel it to my unfinished fiction awaiting plots' and characters' descriptions.

 

Ladies, I won't be around much to comment since I have less than two weeks to get myself ready for my road trip in SK. Never stop writings. Regardless of whether it's positive or negative review on the drama, stay to what matter to you most. If you love this drama and the story it unfolds, by all means embrace it. People have different views on many things. Take it as a way of learning to accept these differences, though you may not agree to them. But don't burden your mind and heart because of those differences. As long as you are clear of your preferences, the negativity should not bother you. We are living in a world of people with colourful personalities and minds. Sometime it's fun reading other thoughts that differ. It may open our eyes and minds onto things we never realise before. ^__^

 

I'll make sure to drop by from time to time to read your colorful reviews/observations.

 

Cheers!

@miracle23 Good point on Hotaru, ever since (or perhaps earlier than that) LWI saw Hina's comfy relationship with DM, he's been taking notice on the latter and not discarding the swordman's potential threat to his plans. LWI was interested in marrying off HN again, Eugene of course, now cancelled from the list but Hee Sung seems like a good candidate, engaged or otherwise. Perhaps, while DM was in police custody, LWI came to know about Hotaru's whereabouts.

Wow! Seriously? I usually talk more about characters that vex/irritate me because I hope to see them be better. Deal with it.

No one is disputing DM's sad past. Nevertheless, it does not excuse his shitty actions at all. 

 

Just because you only watch for Dong Mae dosn't mean every one has to step on egg shells around you. If you want to defend a character, come up with good reasoning. Don't be so condescending as to suggest that others don't even talk about said character.

@bedifferentI am sure those spring pics of the three dudes are from E16. It feels like some sort of page will turn by the end of E15 to get those three to smile when they're together. Seeing that cheesiness is an integral part of kdramas, I am fully expecting there to be a montage of sorts as each of the three guys watches the flowers and thinks about Ae Shin.

 

EC will most likely clear DM's name in E15, so I think there will be an increase of trust/respect from DM towards EC. As for HS, I think EC has softened considerably towards him, now that he has seen that HS is completely different from his parents and his evil grandfather. The engagement hanging like an albatross around Ae Shin's neck is sure to come up in E15 - I wonder if there will be any resolution to it or it will continue to drag on.

@Ahpheng Need a favor from you. Take a look at the comments accompanying this Instagram picture of The Three Stooges from Chungmuro Crumb. 

In the comments they're talking about some unofficial bts picture of a grand funeral at Ae shin's home. I don't have an instagram account and since your instagram profile is well known, I was hoping you would pop in the comments there and ask taeri_yeosin about the picture (and whose funeral it is supposed to be) and see if we can get a link to it here at this forum. Thanks in advance for the trouble.
