A lãng mạn comedy needs a “hook factor” to keep a loyal following. When you have a stubborn romantic lead man who with-and-without amnesia knows how to claim the heart of the woman he loves và a heroine who struggles in confusion lớn the path on how she is supposed to lớn love her man, it will give you a love tale full of acceptance and understanding.


When I learned that So Ji Sub oppa will be in this drama, it was already a done giảm giá for me even if it would turn out bad. So seeing him make those boyish smiles, mischievous smiles, flirty smiles, melting smiles và all the rest of the smiles & grins he made in the drama healed me & made và see life in a bright light with hearts perpetually floating in the air.

The on-screen chemistry with Gong Hyo Jin really worked out well. Her chameleon demeanor easily creates a vibrant, lasting character that complements the love tale prince. I gasped, blushed, giggled và cried over the love admittance push-and-pull & jedi-mindtricking by the lead love couple.

The Master’s Sun has always been consistent with its cliff-hangers. It is so caffeinated like that feeling when you are in the beginning of a relationship, & you don’t want a night to lớn end và yet you want another day to begin.

All throughout the series, they have established the main conflict involving Hee-joo while inserting those other ghost cases in building up the circumstances that help in making Joong-won & Gong-shil get closer và that sweet finale episode seals their beautiful romance with a passionate kiss.

True, there were some insertions which were never explained, but Joong-won has made me just disregard those lapses. The supporting cast và the side love stories are also neatly included and they didn’t pull a make-believe transition towards its finale. While it goes lớn the amnesia cliché, it didn’t make it look like the story is stuck somewhere. It goes strong in portraying how even without his memories of her, his connection with her is somehow still intact and his reflexes helping him lớn fathom what and who he was supposed lớn be missing.

The Master’s Sun nicely blended the romance which showed the love pairing growing together while understanding why they both need each other. It impresses with life & love lessons on how being in a relationship is not half-loving yourself and half-loving the other person. It should be loving the person with all you can.
