His agency released a statement saying “It’s true that Song Joong Ki received an offer for the lead role in Kim Eun Sook’s ‘Descendants of the Sun.’ However, nothing has been decided yet.”
Song Joong Ki left for his military service after establishing himself as a star in popular projects such as “A Werewolf Boy” and “The Innocent Man.”
“Descendents of the Sun” comes from the writer of “Secret Garden,” “Heirs,” and “Lovers in Paris,” all big hits for SBS. For the first time, writer Kim Eun Sook’s drama will be airing on a different network, on KBS. “Descendents of the Sun” will be helmed by “Secret” PD Lee Eung Bok.
