Song Joong Ki's career is back in full swing after his return from military service this summer, and he showed that he's as handsome as ever in his first post-military photoshoot with ELLE Korea.

Song Joong Ki has been hard at work filming his upcoming series Descendants of the Sun with Song Hye Gyo. The series, created by the writer behind hits like Secret Garden and Heirs, follows a member of the UN peacekeeping troops (Song Joong Ki) and a surgeon with Doctors without Borders (Song Hye Gyo) as they work together in conflict zones. The series will be completely pre-produced before airing on KBS, so it doesn't have a set premiere date yet.

During the interview with ELLE, Song Joong Ki stated that, while he had intended to take his time before choosing a post-military comeback, he couldn't resist the script as soon as he saw it. He also said that he and Song Hye Gyo work really well together because they have similar personalities and are able to understand each other.
