The Descendants of the Sun Season 2 release date has been hinted by the director and there is already a speculated plot direction as well.
KBS drama department director Jung Song Ho said in an interview, in a report by KPopStarz, ?I want to thank all the viewers that watched the show and showed it so much love. I would like to repay them by giving the show a second season.? He continued, ?I?ve already reached out to KBS and hope to repay their support by creating another season of the show.?
The director also added that they have to live up to the success of the first installment and are still deciding whether they should still focus on the army or shift to a different theme. He continued to express his desire to keep the story going, ?Since ?Descendants? was the most popular program all year, we are looking to keep that momentum going by releasing a new project in 2017.?
Meanwhile, there are rumors that the next installment will focus on another couple, Sergeant Major Seo Dae-young played by Jin Goo and Lieutenant Yoon Myung-joo played by Kim Ji Won. The original lead couple, Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki, will not be returning to the series due to their busy schedules so fans should expect to see the series delve deeper into the love story of Dae-young and Myung-joo.
While some fans were disappointed of the news, it will still be exciting as they will get to see a different love story unfold. Dae-young and Myung-joo got married at the end of the first season as Myung-joo?s father finally agreed for them to marry. The next installment will most likely deal with the challenges of their married life.
A release date for Descendants of the Sun Season 2 is yet to be announced. In the meantime, stay tuned for more news and updates here on TheBitbag!
