Premiere Watch: Your House Helper, Mr. Sunshine

It feels like we’ve been waiting forever for Mr. Sunshine to premiere, which isn’t an exaggeration this time—it’s been over a year since the project was first announced, which is eons in dramaland. Thankfully we’re less than a week away from finally satisfying our curiosity. It’d better be one hell of an epic premiere to make up for the wait! No pressure or anything!

 

Your House Helper

Time slot: Wednesday & Thursday
Broadcaster: KBS
Genre: Romance
Episode count: 32 (half-hour episodes, 16 hours in total)

Reasons to watch: This will probably be an underdog drama, but it looks breezy and light, and very easy on the eyes. Ha Suk-jin stars in the healing drama about a pretty flower boy housekeeper who gets hired to clean your house but ends up cleaning up your life in the process. It’s based on a webtoon, but since that’s an omnibus series with a rotating door of clients for the housekeeper, I’m not sure what to expect in terms of an overarching plot. Coming from the PD of the sweet, uplifting Strongest Deliveryman and one of the junior writers of The Producers, I think we’re in for sweet romance and adult coming-of-age. Oh, and lots and lots of house-tidying. Is there a cleaning equivalent of food porn? Because I think that’s what we’re getting. Vicarious cleaning has never been my thing, but maybe it’ll inspire me to clean my house? It doesn’t hurt to try.

 

Mr. Sunshine

Time slot: Saturday & Sunday
Broadcaster: tvN
Genre: Historical, romance
Episode count: 24

Reasons to watch: Star writer Kim Eun-sook is back with a new drama and is once again teaming up with PD Lee Eung-bok, who directed her last two mega-hits, The Lonely Shining Goblin and Descended From the Sun. So it’s really not an understatement to say that expectations are through the roof for their third collaboration, a period drama that takes place at the turn of the 20th century and at the cusp of the Japanese occupation. Lee Byung-heon headlines as an American officer stationed in Korea, who will fall in love with an aristocrat’s daughter (Kim Tae-ri) and end up fighting for his homeland for which he had no previous allegiance. It’s life-and-death stakes, country and honor, and once-in-a-lifetime love amidst a backdrop of war. I expect to cry through two boxes of tissues by the time the show is over, and will accept nothing less.

On further thought the title could refer to his double identity: it's in English but the sun is an important symbol for Koreans (at least in KES dramas - DOTS for instance). I'd really like this to be a drama with a character who struggled to survive in two very different cultures, with Korean heritage but who grew up as an immigrant in the USA. Very topical.

If I had a housekeeper who looked (and sounded!) like Ha Seok-jin, who cleaned up not only my house, but my life, he would be my Mr. Sunshine!

I'm so glad that we're getting a light, healing drama to help us recuperate from the heart-wrenching watch that Mr. Sunshine is sure to be.

I see that Mr. Sunshine has been added to the "currently recapping" list-- no surprise there, but I don't take recaps for granted anymore, so thanks for recapping it! It's the kind of ride that should be shared!

It seems lime You House Helper's concept is taken from Japanese Drama whose 2nd season aired several months ago.
Mr. Sunshine is the show to look after. Posters are good and story gives off the vibe of something important. I hope it won't devolved into cliche kdrama atmosphere because this show has in it beat any other popular kdrama out there.

To be honest, kim eun sook's pieces were never on my favorite drama list. I kind of feel her dramas are overrated and maintain to achieved high ratings because of the pd works (his direction absolutely beautiful) and beautiful actors. When news about me sunshine comes out i have no excitement at all. But suddenly, yo yeon sok and byun yo han confirmed to work in it. How can i resist to not watch them? And when i watch the highlight i could feel their hardwork and totality to potraying they role. Yo yeon sok holding a sword and byun yo han playing a melancoly playboy are enough for me to watch this show. Hopefully this time her drama will live up the hype.

You know what? I totally agree with you! The only reason I watched Goblin and DOTS was due to the hype. If it wasn’t for Gong Woo I would have dropped Goblin many many episodes ago.

Finally, someone who thought Goblin wasn't that good! DOTS may not have been worth the hype, but it was a solid drama. When Goblin suddenly became the hit drama that it was, I was so confused at first. Now, all I remember from Goblin is the slow-motion flashback of Kim Go Eun running toward Gong Yoo that they overplayed too much. The romance was not very believable either, but the director did a good job with the cinematography.

I feel like Mr. Sunshine will be the same, in that it will just be a really beautiful drama, but might be lacking in some of the writing. The fact that the drama will be premiering on Netflix also raises questions about whether or not it will be worth the inevitable hype. Crossing my fingers for a good drama though!

Agree with you totally. The age gap in Goblin totally eeked me out!!! I cringed everytime GE would say ‘saranghe Ahjusshi’! Gah! I was more interested in the Grim Reapers romance.

DOTS was better writing wise but still was just a one time watch for me. You are quite right in your assumption that Mr Sunshine probably will have some writing flaws but I am waiting to find out myself :)

Im okay actually with the age gap which is actually ridiculous (i mean like 900 years), but what i didnt like was KGE start chasing and living with him when she just barely 20 y.o. Like, why? And they meet again 10 years later. I dont understand why the goblin live again immortal when he had no sword on him. And actually the whole drama were about funny fight and bickering. Its fun to watch but, yeah, not that great.

KES comes up with great premises and main characters on paper, but her stories rely on a lot of romantic cliches, drama for drama's sake, and she has really messy narrative threads. I'm not a big fan.

I finished Goblin for Gong Yoo, the bromance, and Sunny and Reaper. I fast forwarded through every scene of the main couple and that is the only reason I found it to be a decent drama.

I think I'm the only Beanie alive who didn't finish DFTS--I just didn't like it that much, even after 6 episodes. Felt like I was on a life raft and couldn't find a plot threat to hold on to.

I cannot find any desire to watch Mr. Sunshine. But I am excited to read all the beanie posts on the wall about it!

Fellow Beanie here who did not finish DOTS. I think I made it 6 episodes before I was like "I just can't."

Totally agree! I also just eat that stuff up if done right but never in her dramas!! I've never finished any of her dramas...started most of them and got through a couple episodes... They are a treat for the eyes and ears but that's doesn't keep them from hurting the part of my brain that does complex thinking and reasoning.

reply

Nope, I didn't finish Dots or Goblin either. Hardly anything happened each episode - pretty cinematography and actors only go so far with me, I need some plot suspense to keep me going and I was frankly bored. So the writer for Mr Sunshine is a negative not a positive, though I am attracted to the plot outline. The thing is both those former dramas were blockbusters so I doubt the writer will have been encouraged to pick up her plotting or pacing for the outliers like us who found them boring. I expect more of the same for Mr Sunshine but will give it a try anyway.

Definitely checking out both. I feel bad for any show that is up against Mr. Sunshine, though. I feel like it will take all the ratings in Korea.

I hope it becomes an international mega hit. I was on a Kdrama break when Descended and Goblin came out so I missed out on all the super big obsessive live watch fun!

If this one isn't a hit, then hopefully Memories of Alhambria is. I just want to be in the live watch mood for whatever hit there is. Hwayugi live watch was a lot of fun, but it wasn't a super big crazy international hit.

also: i’m....lol. i hated goblin (i couldnt concentrate because of the horrid age gap) and lee byung hun is atrocious and it SUCKS because kim tae ri is such a fucking force. i hope she gets a lot more work and ones that i can watch because shes so incredible. i am wondering if the show will end up being more nationalist leaning, which would be a concern for me if i was going to watch it buuuut im not. i hope people enjoy her though shes so *_*

Like girlfriday said, we've been talking about Mr Sunshine for a year and I think nearly everyone got the complaints out of our systems over that time. A lot of people don't like LBH, either, so there have been plenty of objections to him as well.

But probably once we see them together there will be oodles of new comments about the age gap, just hold on.

I was more talking about knetz, not about the international fans. And I can't remember that Goblin got that kind of backslash back then.

I personally don't mind a big age gap when both characters are responsible adults, but KSE proofed with her last drama that she can't write those well. The main couple made even me hella uncomfortable (the immature female lead being the main problem, aging her up a bit or making her more mature would've helped a lot).

So I guess KBS is officially doing the split episode thing, huh? Took me a while to realize they did it with Are You Human Too? because I watch on dramafever. It's such a bummer because even though I believe that them airing more of my favorite dramas in 2017 than SBS or MBC is still because of the overall quality of those dramas, I also suspect that them keeping the standard hour-long format really made for, well, more memorable episodes.

There is some law in Korea that keeps you from putting Commercials inside TV shows. So stations are trying to do the half hour TV shows to kind of circumvent that. It will be so funny (in a hilarious and sad way) if they start making 20 minutes episodes and then 15 minutes episodes until every episode is a 10 minutes web drama.

As a linguist one of my favourite things to do while watching dramas is to pay attention to what dialect of Korean each character is using and I've been watching dramas long enough that I can spot certain sounds, words, intonation patterns, or ways of conjugating verbs that are specific to different dialects. Of course this I can't always spot them as I've never formally studied Korean but it's very easy for English as I've been using it for most of my life. So a thing that takes me right out of a show is when characters have lived abroad (usually in English speaking countries) but their language accent and style don't match how the language is actually spoken in that particular foreign country. Since dramas have such a short turnover cycle, there might not be enough time for the actors to learn the foreign accents. But for Mr. Sunshine, with it's enormous budget, I wonder how much attention will be paid to getting the language to be accurately represented. Not only the accent but also the things like sentence structure and word choice. Especially for the hero who's lived in an English-speaking country since he was a child... what will his English be like, which dialect of North American English will they use in the show. This applies to his Korean as well... will he speak it as someone not used to speaking Korean on a regular basis, will he have an English accent while speaking Korean, etc...

My Korean teacher told me that Korean changes so fast with inputs from other languages and fast-moving slang that if you don't go back constantly, your Korean marks you as a "visitor from another time". And, you take a LOT of grief, or at least notice, for that. Of course she is also a linguist so she would notice.

It is definitely possible to still have a native-like language use if you regularly use the language with someone who is a native speaker of the language even if you've lived in an environment where the majority language isn't your native language. But if you've heavily integrated the majority culture and language into your life while living abroad, the language patterns of that majority language start to seep into the native language, be it the word order when forming sentences, using direct translations of majority language words instead of what would be used in the native language (which is why the subs feel off sometimes), or even not being able to produce certain sounds in the native language because the majority language doesn't have that particular sound in its inventory so they never quite learned how to produce those native language sounds (which is how we can tell that someone's speaking with a different accent).

I still haven't decided if I'm going to watch this show but I'll definitely check out the first episode to see if it's worth continuing. I couldn't get through more than 3-4 episodes of this writer's previous dramas as well...

"I couldn't get through more than 3-4 episodes of this writer's previous dramas"... Me too and I wonder why?! Her dramas usually have excellent production quality and high buzz and rating, but I guess I really dislike the way she writes her heroines, also the romance is too cheesy for my taste...

I find them incredibly cheesy, cringe-worthy, and so out-there, which isn't bad but just not my cup of tea. But I loved Waikiki and am currently loving Greasy Melo, which are also 'out-there', so I guess they have to be done in a specific way? I don't have to relate to characters but I do want the characters to believable and they should make me want to root for them. I also don't think so highly of romantic love so when I don't believe the characters, I don't believe their love and all the gestures they do to show their love for each other just become cringy and sometimes laughable. I do really like some aspects of her shows but they're just not enough to keep me invested. Plus, there are wrist grabs and other assorted gestures that are just uncomfortable...I used to be like 'Oh, I'll just ignore this scene' but now it has become hard to ignore those scenes.

Thank you for this! I wrote something along similar lines in the last post for Mr. Sunshine. In that post, I asked if the show would address language issues and culture differences. If we talk the lead of Mr. Sunshine, for example, he leaves Korea between the ages of 7 and 9 (I don't remember which number was given in the descriptions). America becomes his homeland. He might speak English with a lingering accent, but I would expect English to become his dominant language (affecting how he thinks, behaves, etc.). His Korean would be stuck at the level he had when he left, and it wouldn't change unless he was somehow able to keep in contact with other Koreans. He does not return to Korea until much later in life, so his Korean would not have evolved with the changing times. He might be able to pick up a lot after spending time there, but if he has not really been using his mother tongue at all, there would be a real struggle. I went into extra detail in my original post, so if you want to, you can check what I wrote.

I love your post, because you and I are thinking along similar lines. I am always looking at how language and cultural differences are handled (or not, as is usually the case).

Great post, but I have 2 comments:
1) Eugene may not allow America to influence him as much as we think because there was a lot of racism in America during this period.
2) We may learn that Eugene was raised by Koreans living in America, which would allow his usage of the Korean language to continue to a state of fluency.

1. Yes, the racial issue will be important. Despite his experiences, he still might hold onto the belief that he is a true American. His resentments toward and bad memories of his homeland might at least make him identify as an American.

2. Even if raised by Koreans, he still might struggle with the language in different ways. Will he receive a formal Korean-language education? Would the people raising him be literate? Even if they would be literate, the reality is that the language back in the homeland will be constantly evolving. So, Eugene might very well be able to communicate with others, but I would expect there to be differences between his Korean and the Korean of those who never left. Even his intonations might be different.

Soooo .... Yoo Yeon Seok is in this show and he posted a teaser photo of the cast and I was blown away but this stupendously hot Japanese bandit/ronin looking dude in the photo with scruffy bear, thin moustache, tousled bangs almost over his eyes and then I very, very slowly realized ... it was him.

and then I was like, "No, this hotness must be a fluke" so he doubled down with a black & white close up

A-freaking-men. I want to have a really smart, really well thought-out reason to watch this drama because they are so many interesting, profound and topical themes being explored BUT really, if I'm 100% honest, hot Yoo Yeon-Seok is the main reason I'll be tuning in.

Thanks for sharing! He looks super with the more scruffy look. Actually, maybe it's my age but most kdrama heroes look so overly groomed to me it takes away from their sexiness sometimes.

" Is there a cleaning equivalent of food porn? "

I think there is, i'm following a lot of instagram accounts that posts about cleaning and organizing stuff and guess what? they're mostly koreans and japanese.

Physiotherapy gymnastics??? We don't have that in the States 😮 We have Physical Therapy after an injury, OR gymnastics when you're young, tiny and incredibly agile! But either way, you couldn't watch drama while doing them ☹️
Treadmill? Stationery bicycle? Elliptical/stepper?

I also don't know how it is, because I haven't started. But I have heard the social system here pays even some kind of gymnastics in order to prevent more damage to the joints. I get confused with the name of things in German and possibly I am not translating good into English. But I will find out better and comment about it😀

I'm so unsure as to if I should watch Mr. sunshine, I loved Goblin because it was both funny and serious. And had an intricate fantasy storyline, this drama just looks as if serious and depressing had a baby and I am never in a mood for dramas like that no matter how critically acclaimed, kinda like My Ajusshi, I don't really choose to suffer lol I can't get past the depressing feel of a show it just makes me feel like crap.
