Korean Drama ♦ The Master’s Sun / 주군의 태양 ~♥

Title: The Master’s Sun / 주군의 태양
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Romance, Comedy
Episodes: 17
Broadcast Year: 2013
Country: South Korea


The story revolves around a woman who can see ghosts and a man who tries to protect her, and is described as a drama with horror and romantic elements infused together.

Joo Joong Won (So Ji Sub) is a miserly, greedy and conceited CEO, who measures all human relationships through money. Meanwhile, Tae Gong Sil (Gong Hyo Jin, also starred in Its Okay, That's Love) is a melancholy and tearful assistant, who is able to see ghosts after an accident and thus suffers from insomnia. She lives a very reclusive and closed-off life due to her ability.

The story is being touted as “soul healing” drama that brings together very different types of people: one who can see and hear things that no one else in the world can and another who only hears and see things he wants too. As Joo Joong Won starts to believe in Tae Gong Shil’s claim of being able to see ghosts, these two people will grow together in faith and in character. (Credit: Korean

A drama written by the Hong Sisters (Hong Mi Ran and Hong Jung Eun).


I am not really a fan of horror film but decided to give 'The Master Sun' a chance as I find the plot quite exciting. I love it after watching this interesting drama, its refreshing to have a different story every episode and even though sometimes it started out pretty scary (try to watch during daytime if you have a very weak heart >__<) however it turn out to be a meaningful and touching story behind it. It tells us there are always two sides in every situation and sometimes what you hear and see might not necessarily be the truth. The chemistry between So Ji Sub and Go Hyo Jin is splendid, both romantic and funny. I like the hand gesture of So Ji Sub when he commands Go Hyo Jin to ‘Get out’, it’s so cute! Their soundtrack is also pretty good; I absolutely love this drama!!

Around episode 11 to 12, Tae Gong Sil mentioned to Joo Joong Won a children's fairy tale story,
'One Stormy Night', about the relationship of a wolf and a goat. I am very curious if such a book really exist.....apparently there is a book by a Japanese author, Arashi no Yoru ni aka Stormy Night. I thought this story is really cute and it also kind of portray the relationship of Tae Gong Sil and Joo Joong Won. Arashi no Yoru ni (Stormy Night) is make into an animated film in 2005 ( brings back so many good memories...I used to love watching Japanese animated film as a kid ^^), those interested may watch it here.
