First things first — Yay! Lee Min Ho has confirmed his first comeback project, a TV drama, after completing his military service. I’m not too happy about the show itself though. It’s by top writer Kim Eun Sook, and I love the humour in her shows Goblin and Secret Garden.

The sky high profile drama Mr. Sunshine — writer Kim Eun Sook (Secret Garden, Descendants Of The Sun, Goblin), leading man Lee Byung Hun (with a long list of films and dramas, not to mention Hollywood work under his belt), leading lady Kim Tae Ri (current It girl of film industry as she debuted with highly acclaimed The Handmaiden), second lead Yoo Yeon Seok (very popular since Answer Me 1994) Continue reading →
