Netflix Releases Character Posters for ‘Mr. Sunshine’

Netflix has released character posters for its new Korean Original drama, Mr. Sunshine, from writer Kim Eun-sook and director Lee Eung-bok, who previously worked together on the global hits Descendants of the Sun and Goblin.

Based in Shinmiyangyo, or the U.S. expedition to Korea in the late 19th century, Mr. Sunshine tells the story of a Korean boy born into a family of a house servant running away to board an American warship, later to return to his homeland as a U.S. marine officer. He ironically falls in love with an aristocrat’s daughter and discovers the dark scheme to colonize the country that he once ran away from.

Lee Byung-hun, who was Storm Shadow in the G.I. Joe series and Han Cho Bai in Red 2, takes on the role of U.S. marine officer Eugene Choi, while Kim Tae-ri, who came into the spotlight with The Handmaiden, will play the aristocrat’s daughter, Ko Ae-sin. Yoo Yeon-seok, Kim Min-jung, and Byun Yo-han also join the cast playing key roles within the story.
