I don't usually watch TV Drama series, let alone Korean Drama Series. It takes a whole lot of entertainment factor before a particular TV Drama series can catch my attention. This particular series entitled "주군의 태양" or "The Master's Sun" has something interesting to offer to viewers that I easily got hooked into it. I religiously watched the show from Episode 1 up to Episode 17 because there is no really dull moment for every episode. Another interesting thing about this show is that it covers a lot of TV show genres. It is an infusion of horror, drama, comedy, romance, there's a little bit of action and fantasy.
Without the guest ghosts and other elements, the core story of the series is very ordinary. It's another story of a damsel in distress saved by a knight in shining armor. This is a story of a woman named Tae Gong Sil (Gong Hyo In) who apparently can see ghosts. These ghosts bother her to do their last will before they will get to heaven. The only person who can protect her by making ghosts disappear by simply touching her is the CEO of Kingdom mall named Joo Jong Woon (So Ji Sub). The problem arises when their personality is in conflict with one another. Tae Gong Sil is a sweet insomniac woman while Joo Jong Woon is a conceited CEO that measures everything through money. Together, they went through the journey of love and life proving that regardless of the differences, love can heal them.
What really makes me want to watch this show is that, every episode, they have guest ghost with interesting story. A story can be a source of valuable lessons that we, the living, can reflect upon. Let me introduce to you these 16 new friends I found from watching The Master's Sun online.
Meet Chaa Hee Joo. She is one of the most important character as the story progresses. She is the girlfriend of Joo Jong Won who died in a car accident while trying to escape from the authority after kidnapping her boyfriend Joo Jong Won with her accomplice. She seeks Joo Jong Won forgiveness and to reveal the big secret that would change the course of the ordinary story of this series. She appears from time to time during the whole duration of the series through the eyes of Tae Gong Sil, the only person who can see her.
Here's another ghost that is overly addicted to coffee. He keeps bothering Tae Gong Shil for a cup of coffee. In the later part of the story, you will find out that he has a mission. Somebody is using him to watch over Tae Gong Sil. He is a harmless ghost that wants nothing but coffee.
Let me introduce you to Halmoni Ghost. She is the first ghost to appear in the whole series. She can't rest in peace because she was not able to turn over her money which she secretly keeps to her children. She asks Tae Gong Sil to help her give the money to her family to at least use for her funeral.
The most controversial ghost of all, the ghost of CEO of giant mall. He was found dead in one of their rest houses in the midst of a room of a woman which suspected to be his mistress. The soul could not simply rest in peace because he has no mistress. He wants to divulge the biggest secret that he has been carrying since then, that he maybe a man who everybody respected, but his heart is a heart of a woman.
At first, I find these ghosts quite scary and at the same time awkward for a TV series. But Hollywood has done this before with their "Ghost Whisperer", so I am some kind of use to this kind of genre. As the story progresses, I find them cute and vulnerable.
