Song Hye Kyo – Kang Mo Yoen and Song Joong Ki – Yoo Shi Jin: On screen and Off Screen

I have tried to stay away but now can’t help to participate in the discussion about Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki’s chemistry and relationship on screen and off screen :lol:. To be clear, by “off screen relationship”, I am not referring to whether they are a couple in real life or not (I know that there is another thread for that purpose), I am talking about their professional relationship in connection with “Descendants of the Sun”, the drama that we are all watching.

From on screen

I have heard, not in this thread, but from a minor group of viewers on some blogs that they don’t see any chemistry on screen between Song Joong Ki  - Yoo Shi Jin and Song Hye Kyo – Kang Mo Yoen and that they follow the drama only because of the chemistry of the second couple or because Song Joong Ki is pretty. I would respect their feelings if they are sincere. In a lot of cases, however, I think, these people have let their prejudice affect their feelings and observation of the drama, the characters and the chemistry between the two main leads in the drama.

To me, the chemistry between  Song Joong Ki  - Yoo Shi Jin and Song Hye Kyo – Kang Mo Yoen is obvious and expressive. It is also multilayered, mature, real and meaningful.

You don’t even need to hear them speak. Just simply look at their eyes. You don’t even need to know the context, just simply look at the way they look at each other, and you will find the deep and sincere love,and attraction that they have for each other. That’s what I call obvious and expressive chemistry.

But it is more than a pure love, if you add their dialogues, their acts and the context of their dialogue and acts, it is also sincere care, respect, admiration, concerns, comradeship, and even sexual attraction :sweatingbullets: to each other. The chemistry becomes not only expressive and obvious, but mature, multilayered, real and meaningful, which leads to my second point, i.e., the relationship between the two actors performing Yoo Shi Jin and Kang Mo Yoen.

... to off screen

Of course I don’t know whether they are dating or not (and I really doubt that they are, even though I am the one opening their thread in the shipper’s paradise :lol:), but I can say that professionally and personally, they have good feelings and impression about each other, otherwise, they cannot produce such chemistry.

I mean capable actors and actresses like Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo can create chemistry with any counterparts they play with, but if the relationship between the two leads were not good or if they thought negatively about each other, they would not be able to generate such obvious and undeniable chemistry.  I can therefore confidently say that the two main actors enjoy very good personal and professional relationship just by using my common sense and experience. I have watched many dramas and movies with good chemistry from the main leads, but it is so rare to encounter such mature, multilayered, real and meaningful chemistry.

And I think my observation is confirmed by what Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki have talked about each other in their interviews.  Any of us who follows Song Hye Kyo will know that she is a very private person. If she has such good words about Song Joong Ki, deep down she must think of him even higher. It is true that Song Joong Ki has not talked that much about Song Hye Kyo (and I would like to see him share with us more in this regard), but it is not difficult for me to see from his interviews that he does have admiration and very positive impression about Song Hye Kyo. They both said that they are blessed to work with each other in this product, and I am confident that they were sincere when they said so.

Last words

Some of you here have said that Song Joong Ki took the risks when accepting the offer to act in “Descendants of the Sun” because Song Hye Kyo was in the worst period of her career. I would respectfully disagree with this observation. First, we know that Song Joong Ki accepted the offer right away after he read the script (in his word, it is the best script that he has ever seen). It’s not like he accepted the offer only after Song Hye Kyo was confirmed. Second, I don’t think the pre-Sun period is the worst patch of Song Hye Kyo’s career. Yes, she did encounter a tax scandal, but she rose above that (I don’t want to talk about that scandal here because it is not related to the drama). Yes, she had haters, but that’s nothing new, and these people would do the same with or without the tax scandal. She continued to receive movie and drama scripts. She continued to receive advertisement contracts. International and local directors and actors continued to express their desire to cooperate with her. In other words, it is not like Kim Eun Sook or Song Joong Ki were taking risks or doing her a favor by accepting to work with her. Kim Eun Sook invited Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo to play the main leads because she trusted them and she believed that they were capable, well known and beloved actors and actresses who were most suitable for the role and would help to bring success to the drama in Korea as well as overseas. And the two actors are doing just that. But more than that, they have provided us with a unique chemistry and affection that we have rarely seen on the screen.

For that, I thank both and each of them.

 

I could read this over and over again.

I really love SongSong couple on screen and although I don't hope too much, I'd be beyond happy if they really date in real life. I mean, our beloved SongSong are on their 30s now, it's time to settle down and produce some lovely Song babies. Go public or secret that's fine with me as long as both are happy ♡

I'm really into deep. I've spent the past few weeks watching/rewatching dots, lurking this forum to find some news and reading your thoughts and observations about the plot and collecting bunch of pics of Captain Yoo and SongSong couple. I'm practically live in front of my computer screen and on my smartphone because of dots. I don't know how I'd survive when this drama ends.

Or may be she gave her phone to Daniel to fix it. Ho ho

While that could be true, the likelier is that if Daniel was the one who fixed it, it might have done it of his own accord when they car was fished out, cos remember it dropped onto the car floor. She wasn't holding on to it when SiJin pulled her out and swam to the surface with her. I'm more inclined though to think that it's a new phone she got. Just trying to justify how the songs and recording managed to stay available since she clearly had no opportunity to back it up to an actual computer. The only way it would have been possible would be if there was automatic cloud syncing... Hahaha... oh, the lengths we go to to explain the unexplainable... in Kdrama, no less...

That`s right. Argos was a servant of Hera and guarded Io following Hera`s order. Argos killed by Hermes, executing  orders of Zeus, after disguised as a shepherd and sent Argos to sleep with his music achievements. Hera to honor her watchful guardian, retained forever his eyes in the peacocks tail, her sacred bird.

Thanks for completing it.;) I didn't mention the details because to me, the connection between Argus and Argos was more important. Nevertheless, when he was killed, he was on duty... there are two possibilities for the interpretation of his death:

- Either Captain Argus "died" on a mission , meaning that in a mission, something bad must have happened so that he changed totally and got disillusioned with his job. He decided to quit and turn into the Argus the killer, the man with the "100 eyes" because he is involved everywhere.

- Or Argus might die later by doing something honorable! 

But I am quite sure, Argus' fate is connected to Argos' fate!

@Ahpheng Here again another comment about the parallelism between argus and Argos!

As already mentioned before, I proudly repeat "I can't imagine any other actor and actress can take the role perfectly as our current OTP"...so, just forgive their ignorance...:P

Great idea... I like it very much! crazy monkey I had said before that she and her mother must have suffered from the loss of her father/husband. The fact she had called her mother and only talked to her, when she was thinking, she was about to die was the clue that her father is dead. But your observation (she recognises the suit) is another clue that he might have been a soldier too. I like your idea very much that YMJ's father and YSJ's father might have known him... Imagine the reaction of YMJ's father, when he hears that YSJ is dating the daughter from a deceased general or something similar!!!  This would be his reaction:head crazy rabbitHe has planned everything for his daughter/ his own career as well and his plan can't be realised because YSJ is dating the daughter from a higher up!  

Even to SJ seemed strange and asked her "how did you know this was a dress uniform?". hahaha...MG`s father`s reaction is very funny!!!

I don't know, but I find YSJ is far sexier in his soldier uniform than the black suit. He looks extra sexy, tough and charming in his uniform. Is is just me or..

OK lmao this article

1st of all I am a doctor and I manage to look presentable at all times. Many of the female doctors I work with dress quite nicely and look gorgeous as while all while doing their work. They manage to stay clean while in scrubs and working as surgeons. 
Also the part about chasing a patient has happened before-I've done it before years ago! It does happen! Every doctor is different and some are incredibly passionate about their work like KMY. 
Also how is KMY pushing YSJ away unrealistic? It is 100% realistic. She is scared to be with a man who could die at any moment. 
Allkpop is a total troll site. 

Hahaha you got that one right. Most of the times I don't like going there. I've spent many years stanning a Kpop group and honestly I'm not too fond of that site. But what I wanted to highlight here is the ignorance in those comments. Well I'm not a doctor but I've seen quite a lot of pretty ones. 

In their minds they probably think, "How can you push someone who's as handsome as YSJ away?" LOL our pretty doctor also thinks he's handsome but that's not the only criteria needed. She's no longer a teenager. Why would she care about looks more than anything? At least her love to our captain is genuine..it's not just an attraction.

Can anyone else feel the pressure/expectation of a perfect kdrama kiss building? Eeeee! Please make the coming one count Dots team.

Rather than the actors I feel the editor and the director is more responsible for the kiss scene... Cos from any bts you can see it really doesn't look magical when it is actually shot. It all comes down finally to the camera angles and editing.

The wine kiss was perfection considering it was a one sided kiss. The subtle symbolism of her hand pushing away the wine bottle was intriguing. The rain through the window, and the old canteen setting brought me the feels of the movie The English Patient.

All said it doesn't hurt if u have SJK, Joo Ji Hoon, Gong Hyo Jin, Lee Min Ho, Gong Yoo or Yoon Eun Hye to act it out perfectly...

For me, I like him when he took off his uniform. He looks so dashing and sexy in my eyes with just a simple T-shirt ho ho ho (especially at the shovelling part). :P
