Kim Tae Ri Joins Lee Byung Hun to Star in Korean Drama ‘Mr. Sunshine’

Mr. Sunshine Korean Drama - Lee Byung Hun and Kim Tae Ri

It looks like we have our leading lady for the drama Mr. Sunshine, and it is movie actress Kim Tae Ri (The Handmaiden) who will be making her drama debut. She joins leading man Lee Byung Hun (Iris).

Mr. Sunshine comes from writer Kim Eun Sook of hits such as Goblin and Descendants of the Sun. It is set during the early 1900’s and is about the romance of a soldier (Lee Byung Hun) of the righteous army and an aristocrat’s daughter (Kim Tae Ri). It follows the story of the soldier who got on a U.S. military expedition as a child and grew up in America. As an adult, he then returns to Korea as a soldier during the final years of the Joseon era.

I haven’t seen any of the films Kim Tae Ri has been in, but I’ve heard all of the glowing reports of her performance in The Handmaiden. So I’m hopeful for a solid performance from her. And with that, we have our main couple in place for what should be a sweeping period drama.

Mr. Sunshine is looking to air in early 2018.

    I haven’t seen the handmaiden either yet, but I have heard it said that is supposedly is a very great movie. I saw it yesterday at one of my local dvd shops, but it’s still quite expensive. So I’m waiting for a drop in it’s price before I will buy it 😊
