“Mr. Sunshine” Rises Above 15% in Korean Drama Ratings

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

Mr. Sunshine starring Lee Byung Hun and Kim Tae Ri keeps doing its thing by impressing each week in Nielsen drama ratings. This week it landed at 13.3% for episode 13 on Saturday and then saw a nice jump up to 15.6% for episode 14 on Sunday. It’s amazing to see those numbers just keep rising as it continually brings in new series highs.

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.

Mr. Sunshine airs Saturday and Sunday on tvN.

    Wow that is impressive. This is another drama I’m enjoying right now and so I’m happy to hear about these ratings. Also, I just wanted to point out LBH’s character isn’t from the righteous army. He’s from the US army. 😀

      I know, those numbers are something! Dramas from the big 3 networks even struggle to hit 10% these days. Cable dramas are frequently bringing in similar or even better numbers. But 15% is still very unique, and it’s great to see 🙂 I haven’t started the drama yet, so I was going off of most of the early plot descriptions I saw which described him as being part of the righteous army. I knew he was in the US army too but just figured he eventually became part of the righteous army after he returned to Korea. But I have seen a lot of dramas that differ from their early plot descriptions so I’ll then fix them after I see the drama and do a review 🙂
