To say that they did not skimp on funding for Mr. Sunshine would be an understatement. You can see it in this visually gorgeous teaser of what will probably be the “must watch” drama of the summer.
Mr. Sunshine is the story of a Korean boy who travels to America in the late 1800’s and returns to Korea as an American soldier. I consider this a unique take on a time in history that isn’t covered in Korean dramas. I look forward to seeing something that I have not seen before and I hope that the story is as delicious as the stunning cinematography we see in the teaser.
I also love how the whole production has a larger than life summer blockbuster feel to it. I am one of those people that when I love a Kim Eun Sook drama, I really love it. However, if it is one of those few of her’s that doesn’t click with me, I will dump it halfway through with no regret. So the fact that I am visually enjoying it so far is a good sign . . . but I will have to see if the story clicks with me before I totally commit. Mr. Sunshine will air in July 2018.
