Why can\’t Dong-mae just fall in love with the fortune-teller lady? Save us the grief! That candy scene was so sweet! #mrsunshine

    Somebody needs to fall in love with her before I do! There is something going on with her eyes, that’s for sure. Exotic + hypnotic + scary.

Hello, Beanies!

Does anyone know if there is something wrong with dramahood? Is the website down?

According to OCN\’s broadcast schedule, it doesn\’t look like any Life on Mars this weekend. Am I right, Beanies?

Continuing from last post: I guess everyone\’s age is being ignored. I would have expected Eugene\’s character to be closer to an older teen (who later returns to Joseon a middle aged-man). I can’t suspend my disbelief that Lee Byeong-heon is only nine or ten years older than the female lead. In terms of romance: I have no problem with the age gap between our leads. But why did the writer go on to ignore the real differences in the ages of the four leads (even going as far as to use an older teen to play the second male lead’s childhood counterpart)?

    My American eyes can’t judge the age differences in the actors as well as you, so I appreciate your critique. Keep it up. However, let me share that episode 1 swept me away with the story and high production values (just as I hoped it would), so I didn’t really care about the age differences. Especially when we haven’t yet seen how these characters will interact with each other.

      Hello, from one fellow American to another! πŸ˜‰

      I won’t let this criticism prevent me from enjoying the show, but I do pay close attention to small details. I couldn’t ignore what I was seeing.

      I wasn’t quite taken with the first episode, but I have hope for the following one.

    It puzzled me. For a drama with such care and attention given to production details, they could have cast the boys correctly. One is nearly a toddler and the other is a teenager who’s voice is already breaking. They did kind of balance it out when Eugene cuts his hair because he suddenly seemed older. I’m not going to stress over it but it’s weird, since Kdramas are usually very good at casting child actors.

    Maybe it would have been more difficult to hide a teenager in a crate?

Mr. Sunshine Quibble/Spoiler:

Lee Byeong-heon is fourteen years older than Yoo Yeon-seok. By why is the latter’s childhood counterpart played by an actor obviously older than the lead’s childhood counterpart? I couldn’t suspend my disbelief. This doesn’t make sense.

    That looked so weird. I wonder why they disregarded their actual ages and looks. In no way does YYS look older. Plus the episode overall wasn’t that gripping very unlike of KES’ s dramas first episodes .

      Not to mention the very stereotypical portrayal of Americans, lol. I have no problem with showing racism that existed at that time towards East Asians, but why does almost every single American seem to behave the same way (and Westerners in generals in Kim Eun-sook’s dramas)?

      I hope that things improve from the second episode. I agree that something was missing from the premiere.

        Well, we were pretty racist bastards back then. The portrayal of Americans is ok for me. I just hope the writer shows both sides – for example how wearing the uniform of the US Marines can bond men from all backgrounds and races to serve a set of higher ideals. Because that is true.

        2

          True that. But I guess my criticism is a general one when it comes to the portrayal of Westerners.

            If she (the writer) turns David McInnes into a bad guy again by the end of this series, I may agree with you!

    I’m not sure whether it has been explained or not but YYS storyline is not yet covered in episode 1 (that includes his story as a child if it will ever be told).

    That kid is the child counterpart of Seung-Goo, played by Choi Moo-Sung (Reply 1988, Prison Playbook).

    Another supporting evidence is the Park Hyo Sin OST MV shown the first encounter between YYS and KTR. I think that’s the actual child version of YYS.

      That’s if the asianwiki and the subs I referred to are correct.

        Yes, I just watched ep. 2 and we were wrong to think the teenage boy was YYS’s character. @peridot. He was the counterpart to the shooting sabu, who is older than Eugene. So the casting was ok after all.

        2
        1

          Yes, I did notice this. But I remember checking Asianwiki. The actor credited as the younger counterpart of Yoo Yeon-seok’s character was born in 2002, while the childhood counterpart of Lee Byeong-heon’s character was born in 2009. And the actor credited as Yoo Yeo-seok’s father is the same actor who was shot in front of his teenage son. Maybe the information is just wrong. I do remember the camera focused on the middle aged man’s burned hand and that we were given a flashback of the teenager, whose hand was burned.

      Yes, I guess I was confused by the information provided on Asianwiki (please see my response to @wishfultoki).

I\’m really looking forward to Mr. Sunshine, and hope that I am able to watch it somewhere without having to wait a week or more for subs. Even if I have to wait, I just want to be able to watch it. I don\’t want to be disappointed this weekend. πŸ™

    I wouldn’t worry. The illegal sites will just rip the subtitles directly from Netflix so they should come out fairly quickly.

    Though truthfully, I find the black hats, clothing, and sunglasses much less expensive at Serial Killlers-R-Us. No proof of murder spree necessary to purchase all your on the lam needs.

    Bollywood movie up on fan wall.
    are you by any chance from India or in India ? if not then Bollywood fan or SRK fan ???

      I’m not Indian, but I do watch Bollywood (and some independent Indian cinema) films whenever I can. I would like to watch more, but it’s hard to find a lot of films. I’m also old fashioned, so I’m not big on watching things online or downloading. If you have any good recommendations, I’ll gladly consider them! πŸ™‚

      I can’t say that I am a fan, but I have watched a number of SRK films. I do like Randeep Hooda and (I would like to watch Do Lafzon Ki Kahani) and Aamir Khan.

      This is a cute story with folkloric elements. It’s set in Rajasthan and depicts the love story between a young wife and the spirit who takes on the physical form of her husband. As expected, some conflict arises, but there is a surprise to the ending. I must admit, one element about the ending does bother me, but I won’t spoil anything. The story also explores the importance of desire and love in marriage. It takes into account the feelings of the woman and how those feelings should not be ignored or taken for granted.
