New ‘Mr. Sunshine’ poster released by tvN

Upcoming big-budget period drama Mr. Sunshine released a new poster featuring its main couple, Lee Byung-hun (Iris) and Kim Tae-ri (The Handmaiden). The poster shows them covering each other’s lower part of the face. Mr. Sunshine tells the story of a Korean-born American soldier (played by Lee Byung-hun) who, when he was a child, 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 later on as a US marine officer and fall in love with a young noblewoman played by Kim Tae-ri.

Me? Just an ordinary lad with an extraordinary (says this something called 'stereotype') habit of watching Korean dramas. It started with action-filled City Hunter and the rest, as they say, is history.
