Actor Lee Byung Hun will be making his return to the drama scene after a nine year hiatus! 


According to Hwadam Pictures, the actor is set to make his comeback in a drama currently titled 'Mister Sunshine'. The drama is a series written by renowned screenwriter Kim Eun Sook who wrote 'Goblin', 'Descendants of the Sun', and 'Secret Garden'. In an interview with Kim Eun Sook, she stated, "The story is written with the backdrop of the 1900s to commemorate soldiers who've fought, but were not recognized for their service historically." 

Additionally, Director Yoon Ha Lim said, "For this drama, there is much preparation to be done. It's not a pre-produced series; however, to produce a high quality drama, we will be taking some time filming and that is why we wanted to get the casting finalized as soon as possible. Also, screenwriter Kim made a special request for the main male character. She wanted someone who could act well and speak English fluently. Therefore, we believed that Lee Byung Hun was the best pick to play this role." 


Lee Byung Hun is widely known for his role in 'Iris' and has featured in various Hollywood movies such as 'G.I. Joe: Retaliation', 'G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra', and 'The Magnificent Seven'.

I ll pass on this ...Too much real life drama .....too old to be the star...Won Bin Jo In Sung better choice...I think theres a friend or fan of Lee Santa who tries to suppress his bad rumors and bad things people say online ..

Unless the rest of the cast and the scenario is really good, I think I'll pass this one.

Is Shinmiyangyo going to be the historical background of the storyline? If it is, i'm really glad, cuz not a lot of people know about the early US expedition to Korea

This will stir up some controversy. He's on the "let him reflect forever" list with a lot of netizens.

changminbaby Saturday, June 24, 2017

9 years hiatus wow i didnt know about it, i watched him before in the drama "all in" and his movie "once in a summer" they were both good .

changminbaby Saturday, June 24, 2017

wait ,but he had a korean movie in 2015 "inside man" and he won awards about it so ...how 9 years hiatus

Fritzb changminbaby Saturday, June 24, 2017

Pretty sure they mean 9 year hiatus from TV dramas. He's only been doing movies since.

changminbaby Fritzb Saturday, June 24, 2017

ok thanks about the information :)

For once I'm actually looking forward to a Korean drama. Goblin was so amazing and LBH is insanely good actor. If the female lead is someone from my favorite list, I'll be sold. Han Hyo Joo, Ha Ji Won, Han Ji Min

I know what you meant, just a joke :')

jesVV Saturday, June 24, 2017

Omg the excitement is so real!! Despite all the shit he has done Lee ByungHun is one heck of an actor so this is gonna be epic!

AhmedAlDhaheri Saturday, June 24, 2017

I hope they aired on TVN or any other cable channel because nowadays the cable dramas are better and more attractive than public tv (kbs,sbs, mbc)

"Lee Byung Hun is widely known for his role in 'Iris'" eeeeh....not really, it's his movies like Bittersweet Life etc. that has earned him hordes of fans.

SeleneAlai blob1999 Saturday, June 24, 2017

Yes his movies has give him a great deal of status, but in 2009 IRIS was the top rated drama of that year not only domestically but Internationally as well.

What I mean to say is that if you ask a Korean person they more likely to associate him with his movies rather than Iris, regardless of how much of success the series was.
