Five character posters are out for the upcoming tvN drama Mr. Sunshine. The posters show Lee Byung-hun as Eugene Choi, Kim Tae-ri as Go Ae-shin, Yoo Yeon-seok as Goo Dong-mae, Kim Min-jung as Hee-na and Byun Yo-han as Kim Hee-sung.
Mr. Sunshine is a human melodrama that centers on a Korean-born American soldier played by Lee Byung-hun. When he was a child, he was taken to the United States in 1871 after a U.S. military expedition to Korea turned into armed conflict and killed hundreds of Koreans. He then returns to his home country in the 1900s and meets a young noblewoman played by Kim Tae-ri. Yoo Yeon-seok will be playing his rival while Byun Yo-han’s character appears “like an immature playboy, but has a warm heart.”
Mr. Sunshine is written by the director-writer pair who produced Descendants of the Sun and Goblin. It will start broadcasting on July 7, replacing Lawless Lawyer on its time slot.
