‘Descendants of the Sun’ actors Kim Ji Won and Jin Goo are reuniting! The fan favorite Goo-Won couple will be returning to television late this year but only for a cameo role in the 2018 Korean drama Mr. Sunshine. This drama was also directed by Descendants of the Sun director Lee Eung Bok.
According to Soompi, this news was confirmed by Kim Ji Won’s agency Starship Entertainment on January 12. There are no further news regarding the cameo’s concept except for the fact that Kim Ji Won will be joined by fellow actor Jin Goo.
We’re already expecting that Mr. Sunshine will be a highly anticipated drama being that it’s written by Kim Eun Sook, the same mind behind Descendants of the Sun and Goblin. Mr. Sunshine is a story of a boy who boarded an American warship back in 1871 and returns to his home country after many years. It’s a romance and melodrama, revolving around the relationship between this soldier and an aristocrat’s daughter.
Mr. Sunshine will star Lee Byung Hoon (Joint Security Area), Kim Tae Ri (The Handmaiden) and Yoo Yeon Seon (Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim).
