Song Joong Ki will be discharged from his mandatory military service on 26 May 2015. Viewers especially his fans are anticipating his acting comeback, will he choose a movie or drama first?
Last month he received an offer for Kim Eun Sook‘s KBS drama Descendants of the Sun, due to be aired on the second half of 2015. This drama will have overseas filming, people spotted Kim Eun Sook in the Philippines last week (perhaps for location scouting?). Lee Min Ho met her in NAIA Airport (Manila International Airport) few days ago.
This morning a rumor surfaced that Song Joong Ki met with Kim Eun Sook discussing his role and he’s (verbally) finalized the offer. His agency quickly stated that it’s one of the many offers he’s received, positively reviewing the offer and they haven’t made any final decision. I got a feeling he’s 99% confirmed but they’ll wait until he finishes his military service before releasing the official statement.
Descendants of the Sun is about a man & a woman who fall in love while working together in the disaster sites.
