The bar continues to be raised by screenwriter Kim Eun Sook as she conquers the K-drama romance world one genre at a time. Her last hit Goblin was centuries spanning with fantastical elements, the one prior to that was Descendants of the Sun taking the leads to a war and disaster ridden developing country. It’s now three months away from the premiere of her next drama on tvN Mr. Sunshine, setting the story in the late days of the Joseon era as the conflict between the old guard and the new modern Western influences dawning battle for the future of the country. This is movie quality visuals, people, and honestly I’m just captivated by the story Kim Eun Sook wanted to tell about the commoners and patriots who bled for their dreams and beliefs and have been forgotten now in the sands of history.
