“Mr. Sunshine” is written by Kim Eun Sook and director Lee Eung Bok, who previously created the popular dramas “Descendants of the Sun” and “Goblin” together. It tells the story of a Korean man who returns to his homeland as an American soldier after leaving for the United States on a warship in 1871.
The trailer is both awe-inspiring and tragic with scenes of a brutal war, mourning families, and dying soldiers. The four leading actors make an appearance, with Lee Byung Hun taking the role of Eugene Choi, a marine officer who was a slave by birth while Kim Tae Ri plays Go Ae Shin, the esteemed daughter of a nobleman. Yoo Yeon Seok plays Goo Dong Mae, the president of the Black Dragon Society, and Byun Yo Han plays Kim Hee Sung, who is Go Ae Shin’s fiancé.
