Descendants of the Sun season 2 rumors have been circulating on the internet for months, with K-drama fans constantly on the lookout for updates. However, there are speculations that one of its lead stars, Song Joong Ki, will not be part of the sequel.
The KBS wartime series became so successful worldwide and ended with high ratings last April. Its success has reportedly prompted producers to come up with a second installment, supposedly slated for 2017.
However, lead character Song Joong Ki has admitted that he is tired of the constant public scrutiny and lack of privacy that came along with the show?s success. The 30-year-old played Yoo Shi-Jin in the hit romantic drama alongside Korean superstar Song Hye Kyo, who played Kang Mo-Yeon.
The Hallyu heartthrob supposedly needs more than a year to rest before doing new TV and movie projects. If the said timetable is accurate, then it is possible for 30-year-old actor to not join Descendants of the Sun season 2?s cast.
Prior to the report from Movie News Guide, there have already been rumors that Descendants of the Sun season 2 will not include both Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo. While the two are reportedly still open to working together, conflicts in their work schedules have supposedly forced them to beg off from the sequel.
This has led to reports that the new installment will feature a new main love team: co-stars Jin Goo and Kim Ji-Won. According to Descendants of the Sun season 2 rumors from insiders, the new plot will focus on the two?s against-all-odds type of love story, which was widely followed during the first season.
In relation to this, Jin Goo was recently interviewed about possibly reprising his role as Seo Dae-Young.
?If there is a season two, then of course I will take part!? the 36-year-old matinee idol said. ?I will do it again no matter how successful or not it may be since I received a great gift from it.?
?I have to pay back what I received,? he explained, adding that his life changed a lot following the phenomenal success of the first season.
