New Dramas to Get Excited for in 2018 – Part 2

This post is a follow-up post to this.

3rd Drama – Mr Sunshine


Characters-wise, Mr Sunshine is pretty similar to My Ahjussi. You know, the age-gap. This drama is set to release in July 2018 and will be broadcasted by my favorite channel: tvN.

PLOT (taken from here)
During the United States expedition to Joseon (South Korea) in 1871, a boy from Joseon boards an American warship and goes to America. As an adult (Lee Byung Hun), he returns to his home country as an American soldier stationed in the country.

Interesting Point
The director-screenwriter pair is the most interest point of this drama. Mr Sunshine will be directed by Lee Eung Bok, the director of several popular dramas, such as “Goblin”, “Descendants of the Sun”, and “Secret Love.” The story, meanwhile, is written by one of well-liked screenwriters in k-drama world, Kim Eun Sook. Kim Eun Sook is the screenwriter of several famous dramas, such as “Goblin”, “Descendants of the Sun”, “The Heirs” and “Gentleman’s Dignity.” Lee Eung Bok and Kim Eun Sook have shown the world that they can create magic through “Goblin” and “Descendants of the Sun.” So, it is pretty normal for all of us to be excited for “Mr. Sunshine.”

Nerve-Racking Point
I’m pretty nervous about the chemistry between Lee Byung Hun and Kim Tae Ri. I may have no problem about the age difference between Lee Sun Kyun and IU, but Lee Byung Hun-Kim Tae Ri pair is a bit worrying.

4th Drama – Live


“It’s Ok, This is Love” is one of the most interesting dramas I've ever watched. Not only due to its casts, but also due to its stories and cinematography. “Live” is directed and written by the same PD and screenwriter – Kim Kyu Tae & Noh Hee Kyung – who gives birth to “It’s Ok, This is Love.” The drama will take over time slot previously occupied by tvN’s “A Korean Odyssey.”

PLOT (taken from here)
Drama series contains the joy and sorrows of police officers at a precinct office. They try to uphold values in everyday life and maintain justice.

Interesting Point
The PD-Writer pair, for sure. And Lee Kwang Soo. As much as I love how silly Lee Kwang Soo is, I would like to see him playing a “serious” character. I’m really hoping that Lee Kwang Soo will step up his game in this drama.

Nerve-Racking Point
I have no worry about “Live.” I believe it will be beautiful and warm show.
