Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Gyo pair up for the first script reading for Descendants of the Sun
Song Joong Ki is back from the military and has wasted no time getting back into the acting world! His upcoming drama with classic beauty Song Hye Gyo, Descendants of the Sun, has had its first script reading, and the cast looks fantastic together!
Not sure if they all planned coordinating outfits that day, but if it was natural maybe that means that they are already on the same wavelength and will have amazing chemistry!
Coming from writer Kim Eun Sook, who penned hits like Secret Garden, A Gentleman's Dignity, and Heirs, the KBS series Descendants of the Sun is already one of the most anticipated shows of the year. The drama is about a special forces officer (Song Joong Ki) and his relationship with an army surgeon (Song Hye Gyo). In the beginning they dislike each other, but they grow to love each other while working side by side in dangerous situations to save lives in conflict zones. The drama will be filmed 80% in overseas locations, and, unlike most dramas, it will be fully pre-produced before release.
A side story will focus on the developing romance between another surgeon and officer played by Kim Ji Won (Heirs) and Jin Goo (Falling in Love with Soong Jung). Kang Shin Il (Pinocchio), Shinee’s Onew, Hyun Jyu Ni (Angel Eyes), Seo Jung Yeon (Heard It Through the Grapevine), and Lee Seung Joon (Hyde, Jekyll and I) round out the rest of the cast of young people who find themselves bonding over the struggle to survive amidst violence and disease and maintaining humanity through devastation.
Descendants of the Sun will air on KBS at an undetermined time later this year.
