Yoo Yeon Seok will play as, Dong Mae, a man who was born in the lowest caste in Joseon and went to Japan to flee his homeland. Dong Mae is a captivating villain and who has fallen in love with Ae Gi (Kim Tae Ri).
Writer Kim Eun Sook is known as a charming writer who creates both amazing lead roles and second lead roles. Previously, her second leads had also ‘stole’ the attention of the drama viewers, for example, ‘Goblin’ Lee Dong Wook, ‘Descendants of the Sun’ Jin Goo, ‘The Heirs’ Kim Woo Bin, ‘Secret Garden’ Yoon Sang Hyun, ‘Lovers in Paris’ Lee Dong Gun. All of them received great love despite not being the main character. Since starring as Kim Eun Sook’s second leads, those actors have become even more popular.
Kim Eun Sook’s second leads are addictive as they usually smoothens the male and female lead’s love line, or a great help for the male lead character. It should be noted that Kim Eun Sook’s second lead has to be a man who has to be able to show not only his own charm and love line, but also secures his place in the audience’s hearts.
On the other hand, ‘Mr. Sunshine ‘is planned to be aired on the first half of 2018.
