Mr. Sunshine starring Lee Byung Hun and Kim Tae Ri is back to doing its thing by besting itself in Nielsen drama ratings. It brought in an impressive 14.1% for episode 19 on Saturday. But it didn’t stop there and rose to yet another series high of 16.5% for episode 20 on Sunday. Those really are some numbers! And now we move into the final two weeks of its run where we will see if it continues this amazing performance.
Mr. Sunshine is set during the early 1900’s and is about the romance of a soldier (Lee Byung Hun) 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.
