Some said it could also be possible that their tandem?s return would be for a different show, other than ?Descendants of the Sun.?
Because of reports that Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki won?t be a part of the series? sophomore season, there have been rumors that the show?s new plot will now focus on the love story of Sergeant Major Seo Dae Young (Jin Goo) and General Yoon?s daughter Yoon Myung Joo (Kim Ji-Won).
