Rumors about the airdate of ?Descendants of the Sun? season two have gotten fans so excited that KBS is reportedly working double time to finally release the second installment of the hit Korean drama.
KBS Channel Head Jung Song Ho recently announced that the network is ?going to strive harder? to bring back the wartime love story on television. It will supposedly be their way of thanking fans worldwide for the phenomenal success of season one.
According to reports, season two of ?Descendants of the Sun? is supposedly scheduled all the way in 2017. The delay is reportedly because lead stars Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki will no longer return to play the starring roles of Kang Mo-Yeon and Yoo Shi-Jin, allegedly due to their conflicting schedules. ?
Their non-participation has led to rumors that ?Descendants of the Sun? season two will instead focus on the story of Sergeant Major Seo Dae Young (Jin Goo) and General Yoon?s daughter Yoon Myung Joo (Kim Ji-Won), who had a well-received storyline in season one.
The rumored new lead stars are expected to play out an against-all-odds type of love story. Season one showed how Dae Young and Myeong Joo always had special feelings for each other, but were forced to hide their relationship because the latter?s father wanted to pair her with Shi Jin. In spite of their hidden romance, Dae Young and Myeong Joo eventually became free to love each other towards the end of ?Descendants of the Sun? season one.
If the two will really be the new focus of ?Descendants of the Sun? season two, this could possibly open up to new plot twists for the show.
However, some also wonder if the love story of Dae Young and Myeong Joo would come close to the globally popular romance of Kang Mo-Yeon and Yoo Shi-Jin. The former lead characters? story became such a hit that they have even been rumored to have fallen in love in real life.
However, some pointed out that the alleged off-screen romance could just be a publicity stint to keep fans interested while waiting for ?Descendants of the Sun? season two.
