Mr Lee, played by Shin Goo, is one of the most beloved characters in Thank You. Quite an accomplishment in a drama that is full of adorable people. The sweet old man suffered Alzheimer’s and he became like a “son” to his granddaughter Young Shin and a little brother to his great granddaughter Bom. During his brief moments of ‘awareness’ he’d run away from home to liberate Young Shin from the “burden” of taking care of him. He didn’t realize the positive influence his simple wisdom had on Young Shin and Bom’s life as well as Dr Min’s, Suk Hyun and everyone who came in contact with him.
Here are some of my favorite moments with Mr Lee (After you read mine, please share your favorite “Mr Lee moments” in the comments).
Mr Lee brought us some of the funniest moments in the drama. Here he surprised Dr Min trying to pee discreetly and “encouraged” him accomplish his mission, but instead…
“THE WORLD IS A BONEHEAD, BECAUSE YOU ARE A BONEHEAD” Wonderful words of wisdom by Mr Lee that possibly summarize the message of this drama (or one of the messages) I interpret as meaning, changing the world, should start somewhere and/or the world is a mirror. If we, the ones complaining about a bad world, are not “good” ourselves, then the world will always be “bad” because we are the world. Also, if we insist on seeing only the bad, that is what we will only see.
