SUNSHINE is a romantic drama directed by Alyandra Pandjipoera. The story is about Langit (Dion Wiyoko), an executive at an advertising agency, and his past romantic encounters with four amazing women: Matahari (Laura Basuki), Bumi (Sheila Dara), Bintang (Rianti Cartwright), and Bulan (Jill Gladys). One of these women becomes Langit’s true love.
“SUNSHINE was produced like a motion picture, using film techniques and methods during pre-production, production and post-production. The making of SUNSHINE was an exceptional experience for myself and the whole cast. We are proud to be associated with Viu,” said Alyandra Pandjipoera.
Dion Wiyoko, the actor in the role of Langit, commented when asked about his participation in the series, “SUNSHINE is different from any other films or series that I’ve been a part of. My character is associated with four different female characters at different stages in his life, and, he treats each of them with a different approach emotionally. This makes SUNSHINE very interesting.”
