Drama review: The Master's Sun (주군의 태양)

Actually I've watched this last year during its airing but too bad I didnt have time to do the recap because I forgot about it and then moved on with new dramas. This is considered as one of my best dramas in 2013, airing at the same time as Good Doctor. I didnt even finished Good Doctor because I think starting in the mid the story went worse and I didnt get the hype like the first part of the story. The main lead here is Joo Jong Won (acted by So Ji Sub), a CEO of Kingdom who owns many hotels and department stores in Korea and his love interest is Tae Gong Sil (acted by Gong Hyo Jin), a woman with a good life until she got into an accident few years back and after waking from coma, she can see ghosts. Coincidentally, she met Joong Won and when she touched him, the ghosts are all disappeared. Because of this, she does everything that can make her get close to Joong Won who can prevent her from seeing ghosts. Joong Won himself is also a complicated character; he has a painful past which makes him distrust people and suffer from dyslexia. As you might have guessed, this will all lead to a loveline. I should say Gong Hyo Jin is really good at portraying her character; she looks absolutely worse and creepy and I like it. She's one of my favorite actress because she can pull off any character give to her with her own style, not to mention Pasta which is also my favorite drama. This is also the very first time for So Ji Sub acting in a romcom so people did anticipate much and of course he didnt disappoint us. He has trademark gestures and words which can make me laugh everytime I see it. There are so many reasons why I love this drama: the creepy and ghost-themed plot, pairing of Gong Hyo Jin and So Ji Sub which make them ridiculously good, a little mystery, and of course a good OST. OSTs have always been an important factor for me to enjoy the drama because when you watch a good drama with good storyline and pairing but accompany with a bad OST, everything will be ruined. Personally, recommend this one to Good Doctor. 주군의 태양 짱!
PS: They also have so many great poster photos kyaaaaa!!

Joo Joong-won (So Ji Sub) is the stingy and greedy CEO of Kingdom, a conglomerate that includes a major department store and hotel. He meets the gloomy Tae Gong Sil (Gong Hyo Jin), who started seeing ghosts after an accident. Their lives take a new turn as they work together to deal with the terror and sadness brought about by the spirits, while delving into a kidnapping incident in Joong Won's past.


my favorite scene !! *faint*
