Latest rumors reported that Song Joong-Ki and Song Hye-Kyo are confirmed to return in the famous South Korean drama series Descendants of the Sun Sequel aka Descendants of the Sun 2. Although the two stars remained interested to act in the sequel, there were two issues identified that could deter their comeback.
In our earlier reports, Song Joong-Ki and Song Hye-Kyo love team became intensely popular both within South Korea and abroad. Because of their popularity, the series’ ratings soared high as 40 percent in the country alone and received 92 percent positive reviews based from AsianWiki’s reviews online.
Consequently, many fans around the world requested for a sequel and witness the Song-Song couple’s journey in Descendants of the Sun 2. However, both parties confirmed that they might not join filming due to conflicting schedules.
Another reason identified was the screenwriter Kim Won-Seok already declined to write for the second season, because he acknowledged that he’s already done his part in the series. His announcement added to the speculations that Descendants of the Sun 2 may remain a wish.
But then, KBS confirmed later through the network’s head of drama department Jung Sung-Ho that they’re planning to produce the sequel in 2017. Yet, this might cover a different plot from the first season and highlight the second love team Jin Goo and Kim Ji-Won, who played Master Sergeant Seo Dae-Young and Lieutenant Yoon Myeong-Ju respectively.
This speculation almost became true until new reports mentioned that an insider spotted Song Joong-Ki and Song Hye-Kyo talking to one of the writers of the show. According to iTechpost, they claimed that both discussed how the Song-Song couple could join the sequel and contribute to its future success like the first installment.
GamenGuide added that Descendants of the Sun 2 might present the two leading characters as a married couple with kids in the next season. The series might also focus on their family matters, specifically in parenting and marriage, given they’re both in risky jobs.
Since there were no confirmations about these theories until now, fans remained hopeful that Descendants of the Sun Sequel will arrive soon with the same characters.
