The Descendants Of The Sun 2 will follow a new storyline based on the famous American program Criminal Minds. The project is said to be a collaboration between the production company and Taewon Entertainment.
A representative from NEW announced on June 8 that their goal is to release Descendants Of The Sun 2 by 2017. It was stated that they have yet to choose a broadcast station, and it is sure to be a remake of CBS?s Criminal Minds.
The statement has been made after show writer Won Seok refused to work on the plot for Descendants Of The Sun 2. According to the writer, the story has been told the way Seok wanted it to be known.
Criminal Minds is a hit U.S. crime drama. The series follows criminal profilers from the Behavioral Analysis Unit (BAU) of the FBI. It started airing on September 2015 and has been recently renewed for Season 12.
Aside from a new plot, the second installment of Descendants Of The Sun could see wedding bells ringing for the “Song Song” couple. But this remains to be a rumor since no confirmations have been made if Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo will be back to reprise their roles.
Earlier reports claim that Joong Ki and Hye Kyo are too busy with their respective commitments. Joong Ki stars on a new movie, Battleship Island, while Hye Kyo will supposedly be working with Lee Min Ho for a new K-drama.
If the Song Song couple won?t be back for the second season of their hit series, the next season could focus on another pair. It could alter its focus to the secondary love team, Jin Goo and Kim Ji-won.
Meanwhile, Jin Goo, who plays Sergeant Major Seo Dae-young, is sure to appear next season. Goo assured that he will be happy to do it again no matter how successful or not it may be.
In 2017, fans will see if Descendants Of The Sun 2 will have the same glorious fate as its first installment.
