Descendants of the Sun season 2 just might push through after all amid the many rumors of its cancellation. This is after a recent appearance of its lead stars Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo.
The wartime drama ended with stellar ratings and rave reviews last April. Fans around the world have been hopeful that KBS will come up with a second installment.
Many of them got excited when rumors surfaced that one will be released in 2017.
However, there have been recent reports that the highly anticipated sequel won?t be happening anymore.
Among the reasons cited were legal issues stemming from the fan meet of Song Joong Ki. Organizers were slammed with a $1.2 million lawsuit by a Hong Kong-based contractor. Even though the male protagonist is not directly involved with the case, he headlined the event in question. This raised negative publicity for Descendants of the Sun season 2, thus the cancellation rumors.
Furthermore, its main love team has reportedly been too busy lately. Joong Ki is in the middle of a big movie titled Battleship Island. It has been dubbed as Korea?s possible follow-up to the globally successful Train to Busan.
Meanwhile, Song Hye Kyo is reportedly in talks with producers of several big projects.
With the two?s hectic schedule, it is unsure how they will still be able to film a Descendants of the Sun sequel. There were reports that the cast might be changed, but it is unlikely to get the same support from Song-Song?s loyal fans. As such, showrunners allegedly chose to just cancel the second installment altogether.
?Descendants of the Sun? surprise reunion
However, all this could change because of an event that took place earlier this week.
iTechPost reported about Song Hye Kyo?s fan meet last Nov. 13 at Seoul?s Coex Auditorium. Special guests came to celebrate her 20th year anniversary in the entertainment industry.
It was during the celebration when Hye Kyo was reunited with Song Joong Ki. It seemed that his appearance was not planned since the actress looked surprise when he went onstage. The heartthrob was also not included in the list of guests announced by organizers.
The beloved couple sang a duet of Always from the original soundtrack from Descendants Of The Sun.
