If you love historical series, then this series is definitely worth watching. Here is everything we know about Mr. Sunshine Season 2, so far.
Romance and period play go together like Jay-Z and Queen Bey. Amazing clothes, a period atmosphere, and a lovely romance between two unexpected people—who can resist? No, of course not. Because of this, it’s not surprising that Netflix was able to release Mr. Sunshine, a show about Eugene Cho (Lee Byung-hun), a Korean-born US Marine Corps soldier who returns to his home country in the late 19th century and falls in love with Go Ae-shin (Kim Tae-ri). On September 29 and 30, Season 1’s last episodes will air, but Mr. Sunshine won’t be back for Season 2 because the original plan for the entire series was for it to run for only this many seasons.
According to the sources, Netflix purchased the rights from Studio Dragon and Hwa&Dam Pictures to begin streaming Korean dramas around the globe. With recent additions of foreign-language programs including The Rain, Dark, Undercover Law, and Deadwind, Netflix has been putting itself in a position to dominate the worldwide streaming market.
Kim Eun-sook and Lee Eung-bok, who are both well-known for their global hit Descendants of the Sun, which is now airing in South Korea, are the creators and directors of Mr. Sunshine.
In order to ensure that the releases of Mr. Sunshine coincide with the normal broadcast, Netflix is departing from its customary “binge” style approach. Mr. Sunshine premieres two episodes every week. This enables people all over the world to get fresh content simultaneously and prevent spoilers.

Fans’ mixed feelings about the current drama and the upcoming saga’s likely conclusion are visible from a quick scan of the show’s Twitter hashtag.
