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.

    sniff sniff!!i am going to miss this drama badly..
    ep 15&16 : it was a pleasant surprise to see bangshil aunt getting pregnant and her behaviour changing towards her husband and she getting softer and warmer.. 🙂
    kang woo and ri yeong–>i wish they had shown a proper kiss between the two considering how hard little sun worked to get kang woo 🙂 in the end little sun did shine too along with big sun..
    what did yoo jin woo do the whole year?did he just counsel her?but why?what was the accident like between him and tae yang?why is he obliged to help her?these things are confusing..and the coffee ghost!!i couldnt stop laughing that he didnt want to go back because of entrance exams..lol..
    and joo joong won..i will miss him the most!!glad that he dint let go off taeyang till the very end.it was a good surprise to see hong hyo jin applying coral lipstick in the last episode,she looked very good with that 🙂 and the proposal scene and the kiss..waaaah it was just too sweet..loved it alot..
    i m so going to miss this drama..thanx to the whole cast and crew for coming up with great episodes every week..i m glad that finally it crossed the 20% mark 🙂 to be honest i m going to miss so ji sub the most and the hand movement with ‘kkyeojo’..
    ah i wish there were some special episodes too..hope this drama wins alot of awards this year..specially best couple 🙂

    mels Says:

    finally ended, so I can starts to watch it ^^ been restrains myself for watching it from one episode to another. Just cannot handle the feeling of waiting for each episode, since I knew, this will be a very good drama. And by reading all the comments and the rating, I believe so.

    usa-mary Says:

    Wow! I haven’t experienced kdramaland withdrawals in a long time. Now, they’ve begun again after watching I Hear Your Voice and this one, The Master’s Sun. What’s a girl to do???!!!

  17. 1067
    usa-mary Says:

    Now this is an ending that surpasses all endings! In my most humble opinion, its how a couple should be. Whispering and laughing with each other while embracing. Very nice touch director-nim and writers-nim!

  18. 1068
    usa-mary Says:

    I know this is after-the-fact, but even though I glanced at the photo (a number of times) of GS standing alone, dressed in a beautiful black dress with huge cherries, like a hat on her head and still have no clue to what is being conveyed. I wonder what it means…anyone?

  19. 1069
    #1dramaTMS! Says:


    About cherries on head, I wondered this about the trailer/opening credits myself! She looks awesome but what is she, a sundae! I would assume the whole thing is just for style to add some comedy to the horror elements, maybe. Thought maybe to have something sweet/cute like candy connection.

    And… having the same problem with kdrama withdrawls. I really liked secret garden, I hear your voice and masters sun. Can’t believe some of the dramas that have like 25, 50 episodes when these have 17 and 18. Although it is great they are able to pull out all the stops in those episodes and not draw too much out or jump the shark, like many US shows that start off good do. Anyway, hoping more of the supernatural/horror lite type combination comes out after the success of these.

    Fullheart Says:

    Same here, withdrawal, so I went back and watched my fAvorite drama “SecretGarden”. That helped.

    Dev Says:

    Love this drama, best drama, best couple, best cast, best act

  22. 1072
    usa-mary Says:

    @#1dramaTMS!-1069: Thank you so very much for responding and concluding exactly what I thought about the sweet part. You’re really good…I didn’t think about JW’s infamous ‘Candy’ connection. I think its rather cute and whimsical to add those huge color popping ‘red’ cherries on top of her head.

    Speaking of lengthy dramas. When MYSOJU (I miss them-my favorite site) was around, I saw a few dramas that had only 1 episode. Believe me when I say this. The few I found like that and watched didn’t waste time with getting to the point by dragging an issue out for 7 episodes, nor did it feel crammed or rushed to complete the ending and the acting was SUPERB! Well, those were the days…feeling a bit nostalgia now.

    Re the U.S…yes, here they’ll definitely shorten or pull the plug on what they deem as a non-productive, very low ratings program with a quickness. Even though some programs may have had the plug pulled on them, they often return to as a seasonal time slot fill-in due to viewers popular demand in the way of reruns.

  23. 1073
    usa-mary Says:

    P.S. Another scene I’m going to miss…GS’s first graveyard wake-up appearance, surprising and mortifying a filial family’s memorial gathering. That one alone made me laugh myself to tears!

    I’m going to MISS YOU…THE MASTER’S SUN!!!

    feane Says:

    From the beginning to the end this drama was an amazing one and I enjoyed every episode. And I really liked the final episode. Esp the taxi scene. For some seconds I really thought there would be some trouble again like the possessed Gong Shil will commit a crime. Well, I wouldn’t have minded that. If the writers had extended that one, an 18th episode wouldn’t have been that impossible, haha 😀 And the drama would have ended like it started: With a scary issue ^^

    Sigh, I really liked that lovey-dovey ending of them ♥
    But at the same time I’m a little sad that the show lost his creepyness during the second half of the show. I really enjoyed those creepy scenes at the beginning :’)

  33. 1083
    Mary Says:

    Man, I already miss this drama. It’s so hard to forget about a drama once you have created that connection with it. It was so worth the time I invested watching it. I was always entertained whenever I watch any episode, whether it was the first or the last, that were all great. I really wished this drama would have 50 episodes.
    Anyways, So Ji sub and Gong Hyun Jin, I miss you two very much; I really wish you two could date for real. You guys would make the sexiest and the most adorable couple. Hope you guys will work together on another project, soon, please 🙂 That would be amazing!!!!!

    Agree with u I miss this drama so much …. I wish they extend or have a MS2 – it seems we haven’t had enough of this great couple.. great drama….
    Anxious to know …. when is JJW going to propose to TGS; is TGS following him to China or continue her study …. I would very much like to see Coffee Ghost meet TY and her sister in person…. & the ghost in the conference room … who is that??? … We miss the creepy scenes & the scary ghost & really miss TY touching JJW as her bunker … he he

    Hong Sisters helps us … to ease our misery of this weird Wednesday & Thursday without Master Sun …. it seems that the Sun is rising at the other planet … sigh sigh….

    Yumi Says:

    Just finishdd watch ep 17. *sigh* i think the ending is not climax. Anticlimax. They just hug each other and laugh together. Aigooo there is much better scene be the ending than those one. There is n0t a climax that make us waiting for. I think the ending between kang woo and ri yeong is better than TY and JJW. . .

  41. 1091
    Yumi Says:

    But over all i will vote this drama in koreandrama.org awards 2013 beside THAT WINTER THE WIND BLOWS

  42. 1092
    Chloe04 Says:

    So agree with fanms, Ivy and Rosie823, there is so much potential for Masters Sun 2. This drama truly left me wanting to see more adventures of TGS and JJW! There are a lot of questions unanswered, like what in the heck was her bad accident exactly! Would love to see a wedding with the ghosts, coffee kid, trash can etc in attendance. Since it implied that TGS will now happily help the ghosts, I’m sure she will continue to get in trouble. But would love to see her doing it much to the chagrin of her husband!

    Anyway, I think I love this show because it was a combination of absolute pitch perfect casting and clever writing with so much heart mixed with supernatural elements. I will look forward to hong sisters and both SJS and GHJ in other things but will hope for another Masters Sun to see TGS and JJW happily married and maybe a little Master/Mistress! Sigh…
