Descendants of the Sun cast members Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki?s closeness continues to fuel rumors that they are dating in real life.
The two gained worldwide popularity since they starred as Yoo Si Jin and Kang Mo Yeon in the hit wartime drama. The KBS series gathered over 38 percent viewership when it ended last April and has become so popular that the network is reportedly already working on its second season.
Aside from its riveting military-themed love story, the show?s success has been attributed to the undeniable chemistry between the lead Descendants of the Sun cast members. Song Hye Kyo herself has been very vocal about what she thinks of her leading man.
“I was looking forward to meeting him since so many people told me good things about him, and it turned out that he was an even better person than I’d thought,” the 34-year-old Korean superstar said.
“He’s very sincere and thoughtful when filming. I think he’s really cool,” she added.
The International Business Times report also shared how Song Joong Ki praised who he described as ?Korea?s most beautiful actress.?
?Everyone thinks it’s because of her outward appearance that she became famous, but after working together, I realized her inner heart and personality are also good,” the 30-year-old actor said.
However, the supposed real-life romance between Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki was recently involved in a controversy because of the actress? alleged involvement with another Hallyu heartthrob. Sometime last June, the Full House actress was accused of being the third party in the rumored break-up of fellow Korean stars Lee Min Ho and Suzy Bae.
The Uncontrollably Fond star also raised speculations due to cryptic statements that she made in her interview for Harper?s Bazaar Korea?s July 2016 issue.
All the parties involved have not directly confirmed any details about the split, but the third party accusations recently got raised again due to reports that Song Hye Kyo and the Boys Over Flowers heartthrob are both in California.
