The tvN drama Mr. Sunshine starring Lee Byung Hun and Kim Tae Ri is showing its power as it continues to climb in Nielsen drama ratings. It rose up to 10.8% for episode 5 on Saturday while then reaching 11.7% for episode 6 on Sunday. That was a series best for the drama on both nights as we now get solidly into its run.
Mr. Sunshine 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. It comes from writer Kim Eun Sook of hits such as Goblin and Descendants of the Sun.
