Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo

Song Joong-ki, who was praised for his role in the "Descendants of the Sun", was recognized for his performance in the 29th Korea Producer Awards last March 17. In and out of the famous Korean drama series, the star's personal life has been connected to the development of the story, more so with the status of their relationship.

Soompi cited Song Hye-kyo's interview with W Korea magazine in which the actress admitted that she is close to actors Song Joong-ki and Yoo Ah-in but they are brothers to her than potential lovers. To recall, the "Moonlight Drawn by Clouds" and the "Descendants of the Sun" stars have been insistently linked with each other after they were spotted traveling overseas for several times.

Rumors of a "Descendants of the Sun" sequel surfaced nearly immediately after the drama ended. DOTS was released in February 24, 2016 but after a year, fans were left inspired by the K-drama. The photo received more than 250K likes and several fans even congratulated the star cast for the success.

Rumor or not, the Park Bo Gum-Song Joong Ki-Song Hye Kyo circus has been going on for a while and has been mixed up with the show's storyline against the reality. It did not reach juggernaut viewership status like Moon Embracing the Sun, but it is considered the latest K-drama to make the biggest global impact since My Love From Another Star.

(Instagram) "Descendants of the Sun" cast reunites to celebrate 1-year anniversary. Actor Park Go Bum of "Moonlight Dawn by Clouds" will join the cast, which will bring a rift between Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo.

Back in April 2016, KBS 2TV's drama department announced that they will push for "Descendants of the Sun" Season 2 with an intended release in 2017. From what we know, it won't be a true second season, but a spin-off concentrating on the second leads from the original, Jin Goo and Kim Ji Won.

While there is still no official word whether or not "Descendants of the Sun" will be back for another season, it was recently confirmed that the 16-episode drama will be made into a movie in China.

According to IBT, Song Joong-ki thanked Kim Eun-sook and Kim Won-seok who were responsible for the wonderful writings used in the "Descendants of the Sun". For those who are interested in watching the K-drama, it can be viewed on DramaFever, Viki, or OnDemandKorea depending on region availability.
