Gong HyoJin's amazing acting takes on a different, and slightly less 'intelligent' role in The Master's Sun - but pulls it off as flawlessly as she did her eccentric and complex character in It's OK, That's Love.
Both dramas have a lead character (Joong Won in The Master's Sun, Hae Soo in It's OK, That's Love) that sees themselves as a little bit superior and doesn't want to have much to do with the second lead initially, but turns into a comedic and cheeky relationship.
Both have psychological elements to them which can be very sad. Without giving too much away, a departing of a certain soul in TMS reminded me of a soul the metaphorically leaves in IOTL). They also deal with healing wounds and fixing problems of the past.
Both are funny and feel-good dramas.
TMS is a little more slow-paced but has a more complex plot; IOTL has more side-plots, a less complex main story but is more high-intensity and high-emotion.
