The Master's Sun 03

Title: 주군의 태양 / The Master’s Sun
Chinese Title: 主君的太陽
Also known as: The Sun of My Master / The Sun of the Lord
Genre: Horror, Fantasy, Romance, Comedy
Episodes: 17
Broadcast network: SBS
Broadcast period: 2013-Aug-07 to 2013-Oct-03
Air time: Wednesday & Thursday 22:00


The story revolves around a woman who can see ghosts and a man who tries to protect her, and is described as a drama with horror and romantic elements infused together.

Joo Joong Won (So Ji Sub) is a miserly, greedy and conceited CEO, who measures all human relationships through money. Meanwhile, Tae Gong Sil (Gong Hyo Jin) is a melancholy and tearful assistant, who is able to see ghosts after an accident and thus suffers from insomnia. She lives a very reclusive and closed-off life due to her ability.

The story is being touted as “soul healing” drama that brings together very different types of people: one who can see and hear things that no one else in the world can and another who only hears and see things he wants too. As Joo Joong Won starts to believe in Tae Gong Shil’s claim of being able to see ghosts, these two people will grow together in faith and in character.

Park Hyung Sik was originally cast to play the young version of Joo Joong Won, who is now played by L @ Kim Myung Soo. But due to his schedule (“ZE:A” will release new songs in August and he is also cast in SBS drama series “The Heirs”), Park Hyung Sik dropped out of the series prior to filming.

– This drama was originally scheduled to end on episode 16. However, the production team decided to extend for 1 more episode due to the high ratings of this drama.

    And yes hanna had everything,gud family large house so she wouldnt be greedy about jewellery but hee joo was poor and wanted a good life..she used her twin hanna..so hanna’s spirit is protecting joo won the person she loved and had to protect..i am sure she will enter gong shil’s body soon!!this series is so interesting..and right after the episode ended i get to minho’s heirs trailer..woww what a treat 🙂

    usa-mary Says:

    @799: Oops! It should be HJ, not HS.

    -Well, there are very few actresses in Asian drama land that can move me to tears with their gut wrenching cry and it looks like Gong Hyo Jin is now added to my short list.

    -I look forward to JW’s heart working with his calculating mind soon. His mind is receiving glimpses of his connection to GS which that wench HN, like a seedy pi has been sniffing around, finding out info so she can emulate them. But, I dare say, his heart and touching GS can’t be faked out or fooled. That remains strong even is his memory isn’t at this time.

    -Thank you little sun for the set up. You knew the so called 411 about JW’s competitor, Giant, would draw him out; so that JW and GS could cross paths. Even though you’re envious of GS being with JW (due to his wealth), quirky and just got to have Candy Kang for yourself, you’re also funny! What a wonderful actress.

    -I don’t know what sacrifice madame woo woo is implying. Maybe, its to have GS work with her since she can control the ghosts, but not see them and GS can see the ghosts, but can’t control them. Each one has her own special (sixth sense or 3rd eye) gift which can’t be interchanged. One person can try to impart their gift to another, but the recipient won’t have the full power of the gift like the original person. But, writer’s can make anything happen.

    -Candy Kang is too funny, calling little sun a freak of nature (I haven’t heard that saying in a long time). LOL Telling her he’s going to follow her example and go after GS just like she’s going after him. It’s funny how little sun’s vengeful acts always backfires on her! LOL Thank you Hong sisters!

    -Ha Na is evil (secretly sacrificed her own sister) and the aunt is acting just as gullible as she did with that vase. All she’s thinking about is keeping GS away from him and draw Ha Na closer. Silly woman!

    -I wonder what CHJ wants to tell JW directly that she wants to take over GS’s body to do so? It would be nice if it was to battle it out with her sister HN for his affection (like a commenter in Viki mentioned), but how could that be if she’s protecting her sister at the same time? Wait a minute! If that happens, JW won’t know its CHJ, he’ll believe its GS. hmmmm

    -It appears that Secy. Kim didn’t know beforehand about the abduction plot between his twin nieces, or did he? If that’s the case, there must be another person involved or Secy. Kim is a liar. We’ll find out.

    I ♥ Master's Sun Says:

    I think the spirit matchmaker can take the ability to see ghosts of Gongshil with rituals maybe she needs something to make it happen, so in that case she needs the body of taeyang and offer it…cos she can even make a dead person alive….my theory is kinda weird lol

    anna Says:

    they’re dating? Oh noooo…in my opinion Hanna just obsessed with joong won,there’s no love in her eyes…and i’m sure joong won won’t attracted to hanna…

    feane Says:

    If TY will let CH enter her body, I guess CH will confront Hana. And wether Hana believes that it’s her dead twin sister or just TY with too much information about the kidnapping, it will put TY in danger for sure… 😕

  12. 812
    Sandy Says:

    Mary@802 I like your write up. However, it’s becoming clearer that Han Na is really Hee Joo, or so it appears. I think the girls switched places with JJW and he couldn’t tell the difference. I do think that he and KW are already suspicious of “Han Na”.

    popy darkgirl Says:

    Really crazy now.with your Mater sun. I am waiting to see your best next Ep. I hope that My JJW will remember My Gong Shill earlier.. ^^ Done break my heart … Love the master Sun ,,

    Yumi Says:

    How can someone lose mem0ry just becoz of stabbed by knife. . . :/

  15. 815
    feane Says:

    I think that’s possible even without that “soul coming back thing” that TY did in exchange for JW losing his memory of her. From a medical perspective he WAS in a coma for some seconds which means his brain stopped working. And I guess since TY was the person with whom he was together the last moments before he was hurt, it’s possible that his brain deleted that shocking moment including everything related to the person…(?) *head scratching*

  16. 816
    I ♥ Master's Sun Says:

    Guess JW doesn’t loss his memory because he was stabbed by the screwdriver…he was supposed to die,right?but since GS asked the spirit matchmaker to revived JW but the consequence he won’t remember anything about GS because as what the matchmaker said every moment JW saw GS’s shining presence all the meaning behind the necklace will be erased.The sun necklace itself stands for Gongshil cos she’s TAEYANG (BIG STAR) of JW…cos if you try to rewatch and analize the scene of Gong shil and the spirit matchmaker you will know the reason why he loss his memory…does it make sense? 🙂

    My question is,what makes JW remember Gongshil?is there somewhat a code or password for him to remember her?just like in the book the password is ONE STORMY NIGHT:)

  17. 817
    I ♥ Master's Sun Says:

    Is there another ‘One Stormy Night” gonna happen again for JW to remember everything about GS?

  18. 818
    Fullheart Says:

    If you believe in spells, when the witch lady called him back, she said to him that he would not remember TY or anything about her. I think she just wants to take advantage of Ty in the future. What better way then to have him forget her. Witch lady has her own agenda.

  19. 819
    Micc Says:

    The witch lady explained that JW was not back to his body because when he was near death, he saw TY as he was attracted to her bright light (same with other spirits), and hence he thought he was dead. In order to call him back to his body, the witch lady had to destroy his memory of ever seeing the light of TY, and that would also wiped out all his memories of TY.

  20. 820
    feane Says:

    In my case, I was just explaining how it would be maybe possible even without TY making that deal with the matchmaker, because I thought Yumi watched the scene with that matchmaker and was asking about the non-magical way ^^ Although I don’t know whether my theory is possible 🙂

  21. 821
    usa-mary Says:

    @I heart Master’s sun-803: You’re talking some serious deep Louisiana swamp and Haitian dark jungle woo-woo now! Making a dead person alive…more like zombies r us!

    @Sandy-812: The thought did cross my mind that there may have been a switch. If that was the case, it makes me wonder why the ghost didn’t reveal to GS her true identity? Also, how did HJ convince her sister HN to participate in the necklace heist and abduction when she was living a good life already? HJ’s ulterior motive must have been to gain her sister’s trust, bond well with her in order to steal her identity and credentials so she could experience living a good life until the 15 year statue of limitation ends on the necklace.

  22. 822
    feane Says:

    @usa-mary 821:
    Your question makes me wonder whether Hana knew about CH’s plan at all. Maybe CH tricked her, too? Maybe she always followed Hana around secretly til she started her plan to kidnap JW. Although…. that doesn’t make sense either since JW only knew about CH, but not about Hana… There was not one time when he talked about someone with the name “Hana”, when he talked about his past…

    Wow!I love it!!!why not?thats JW’s fave line 🙂

    -Autumn- Says:

    I have a feeling that Ha Na is actually Hee Joo and the one died in the car is Ha Na. Because from what Secretary Kim said, Ha Na is a kind and cheerful girl and she’s adopted by a good, wealthy family in England. So Hee Joo maybe holding grudge against Ha Na for having a better life in England while she was left in an orphanage in Korea. When ‘Ha Na’ back from Korea after searching for her twin sister, she becomes a different person so my guess is that was actually Hee Joo using Ha Na’s identity.

    Wow, good info I love Masters! Thanks! Glad there is more to it than just the memory loss thing (which seems like he already knows he should remember her anyway) with Tae Yang’s first love, assume he has something to do with her “accident” and becoming a ghost seer. Cant wait!!!

  50. 850
    Yoli Says:

    @ Autumn- I agree the Hee Jo is alive and well and Ha Na died.

    When Hee Jo ghost appeared asking GS if she could use her body, and GS asked her if it was to get justice and HJ said yes.

    I can’t wait to see episode 14 JW is remembering GS slowly.
