Master’s Sun is a…wait for it…Masterpiece


  • Title: Master’s Sun / The Sun of My Master / 주군의 태양
  • Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Romance, Comedy
  • Episodes: 17
  • Broadcast network: SBS

Master’s Sun finally came to an end last week and it is most definitely one of the best shows I’ve watched all year.  It’s probably my favorite kdrama this year (so far).  The Hong sisters have done it again (written yet another hit) and this time they nailed it.  Usually their dramas start off really great, but then go downhill about 3/4 way in when it’s time to get serious.  However, this time the drama was consistently great throughout the series.  It kind of reminded me of the American show Ghost Whisperer, except as a romantic comedy.

Master’s Sun is about a girl, Tae Gong Shil (Gong Hyo Jin), who has the ability to see ghosts after getting into an accident.  She’s absolutely petrified at the sight of them and is unable to live a normal life because of her sixth sense.  The ghosts always approach and pester her asking her to do favors for them.  Gong Shil lives in hiding at a dorm house and is practically a loser.  One day, after doing a favor for a ghost, she comes across Joo Joong Won (So Ji Sub).  He’s an extremely rich guy who’s the owner of Kingdom shopping mall.  Upon accidentally touching him, she realizes the ghosts disappear.  There’s something about touching Joong Won that causes the ghosts to go away.  The race is on to get closer to her ‘bomb shelter’ as she calls him.  She practically stalks him, getting a job at his mall, just to get closer to him.  He’s your typical rich guy, with many issues, but has no interest in girls.  Eventually, Gong Shil does get close to him and even gets him to come along to her adventures (helping ghosts).  Gong Shil must help Joong Won face the trauma of his past and even deal with her own demons.

Like I said before, I absolutely loved this drama.  It was so hilarious and packed with so many cute moments.  It even has a bit of a horror element (those ghosts are seriously creepy looking).  It’s just one of those shows that keeps you guessing throughout.  Your mind is always on alert.  Another thing I loved about this drama is that it hardly had any cliffhangers.  Only one episode (episode 12) has a major cliffhanger. Other than that, each episode has a nice ending that doesn’t drive you insane. I even loved the ending.  So should you watch this series? YES! It’s an absolute must watch.

My Rating: (5/5)

You can watch this series subbed over at Viki or Dramafever.
