MR. SUNSHINE (K-drama 2018)

Mr._Sunshine-P1

Mr. Sunshine centers on a young boy (Lee Byung Hun) born into a house servant’s family and travels to the United States during the 1871 Shinmiyangyo (U.S. expedition to Korea). He returns to his homeland later as a U.S. Marine officer. He meets and falls in love with an aristocrat’s daughter (Kim Tae Ri). At the same time, he discovers a plot by foreign forces to colonize Korea.

If you haven’t seen Mr. Sunshine, then you have missed a beautiful and heartbreaking drama at once. Everything in this show is flawless, and I am absolutely loving and praising it.

What makes this show perfect?

The historical significance and symbolic.

The dialogues and the keenness of details. The balance of fast and slow pacing.

Stunning and talented cast. Even the minor roles are significant.

The epic cinematography.  

A classic beautiful romance.

Classy and intellectual comedic.

The production quality is no joke.

Patriotism. Comradely. Friendship.

The righteous Army members during the interview of journalist Frederick Arthur McKenzie (a real historical correspondent) from the Daily Mail newspaper.

Still, we can’t turn back now, can we? It’s not that only glorious days become history. We know we’ll lose and that we won’t last long with these weapons, but we must fight. We’ll fight and show them that we were here. And that we were afraid, but we fought to the end”. – Righteous Army-

“In the hotel backyard, the streets, the trolley, and the man’s room, I begged for him to come back alive. That man who only loved Go Ae-shin, who was a fool in love — I waited for him.” – Hina-
