Song Joong-Ki And Song Hye-Kyo Relationship A ‘Descendants Of The Sun’ PR Stunt?

By on

Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo, stars of Descendants Of The Sun, have been rumored to be in a relationship for quite a while now. They were dubbed as the ?Song-Song? couple. This rumor was instigated after ?the stars were spotted having dinner in New York. However, these rumors though have been refuted by Hye-kyo in a press conference in April. The actress explained that they are just friends.

Fans of the show do not take this refutal at face value. Many still believe (and hope) that the on-screen star couple are also off-screen lovers. Speculative reports pile up that they might be in a secret relationship. One report even accuses Hye-kyo?s cooking of ruining Joong-ki?s diet for a project. These rumors and reports just keep fans anticipating for the next installment of the Descendants Of The Sun.

As these reports keep popping up to keep fans on the edge of their seats for the next season, there is a question that needs to be asked, and is asked quite often. Is all this just a publicity stunt? If it is, it is really working. It is milking this rumor hard and it seems like it will never dry up.

In an interview with Soompi, Joong-ki revealed his thoughts about dating. This was in an interview with the Chinese media at his photo shoot for Bazaar.

Joong-ki revealed that his dating style is not special and that he is a normal guy. He stated that he is not like his onscreen character, Yoo Si-jin, who is quite romantic. According to the report, the fictional Si-jin is the No. 1 ideal type of man for Chinese women now. Joong-ki thinks that that type of guy though does not exist and he, in real life, is quite old-fashion and a bit serious.

He also revealed that if he is in a relationship or will get into a relationship, he does not want to make it public. He wants it to be a secret to preserve the specialness of such relationship with his significant other. Is this a signal that he and Hye-kyo are not dating at all and that all of this is a publicity stunt? Maybe. But this also does not rule out a secret relationship between them two.

If they truly are in a relationship and it?s being used as a publicity stunt, good for the fans and the show. If they are not in a relationship and it?s still being used as a publicity stunt, it does not really harm anyone but them if they have serious relationships with other people. If this is not a network-generated publicity stunt but just fan rumors circling, that just tells you how the show is booming right now.

Whatever is the case, keep it tuned to the Bitbag for more Descendants Of The Sun updates.
