Now that i watch again.. Anybody can confirm me.. Is KMY is the same age with YMJ. They're from the same university. If yes, then she is older than our Captain Yu? 

A silly question but i just want to know..

SJ - 33 years old

MY- 34 years old

MJ- 32 years old

'Descendants of the Sun' Korean Drama Shows Song Joong Ki's Manly Side While Hitting 440 Million Views In China

Song He Kyo who stars in the "Descendants of the Sun" Korean drama which currently airs on KBS 2 TV every Wednesday and Thursday nights at 10 p.m. shared that she has been inspired by leading man Song Joong Ki's acting. "I've received so much help from Song since he's a gentleman around his acting partners," Song spoke at a press conference. "On long days, he would cheer me up. He's been such a reliable younger brother."

Song Joong Ki is described as both "masculine" and "pretty" and his character as Yoo Si Jin helps him prove that pretty boys can indeed be manly. In the story, Yoo is an army captain romantically eyeing Song He Kyo's character Dr. Kang Mo Yeon. He asked the doctor, "Are you still sexy? In the operating room?" Viewers perceived it as just "irresistible."

When he sneaked a kiss with Kang before leaving for fictional country Uruk for a peacekeeping mission, he asked: "Should I apologize? Or should I confess my love?" Kang demanded apology though she secretly wished for the latter, as any woman does.

Song Joong Ki had been in films and dramas that made use of his pretty boy persona. According to Yonhap News, in "My Precious You" on KBS, he was Jang Jin Ho, the not-so-bright and sympathetic younger brother of In-ho, the female lead. In "Hearty Paws 2," he was Dong Wook, the fragile hearted guy who was attached to a white Labrador retriever and cared for her puppies. His support roles in "OB-GYN" and "Triple" highlighted his effeminate features as well.

However, the actor has a side of him that is sharp and sporty. He was a representative of his hometown Daejeon as a short track speed skater during his youth years, competing in three national competitions when in grade school and when in high school. He left sports following an injury, focused on academics and earned all A's in his senior high school year. He entered Seoul's prestigious Sungkyunkwan University to study business.

His recent mandatory military training also contributed to his alpha male side. A legacy of the 1950-53 Korean War, South Korea requires all men to serve about two years in the military. "Descendants of the Sun" Korean drama is Song's comeback TV project after completing his military duty last year.

Song confessed it was not easy to portray Yoon even if he is fresh from military training. Speaking to reporters at a press conference, he shared: "Because my character is so serious and has great leadership, it's becoming harder to portray those aspects of Yoo."

The "Descendants of the Sun" KBS 2 TV Korean drama hit 440 million cumulative views in China, outnumbering the 2014 "My Love from the Star," said SPH website. As the drama has swept away many Chinese fans, the Ministry of Public Security in China posted Saturday on its official site a caveat: "An enormous fandom of Korean drama Descendants Of The Sun starring Song Joong Ki has emerged as it began to air in Korea and China. It is easy to see that many have fallen in love with the male lead Song."

The post said it can be dangerous to watch Korean dramas as it could lead to legal troubles. A couple previously divorced because of a Korean drama and the husband went through plastic surgery to gain his wife again.

Based on this IG post Link there is a possibility that our Captain YSJ and Dr KMY may grace the cover of ELLE HK magazine. They will be in HK for DOTS promotional activities in April right?  The poster said that Elle HK has posted their pics on their IG account. I'm really excited for this possibility too. Elle pictorials are very beautiful and most likely it will cover their characters in DOTS, their working relationship with one another and all the beautiful photos.....Maybe we will get our wish soon....fingers crossed.

.............

On the first day they met again in Uruk, he already made his move again after pretending not to see her earlier. He said he will die in her place but she didn't want that at all. Eventually she felt backward first but he grabbed onto her so that she would land on top of him instead. He really cares and loves her so I can't see how he will be able to give her up....He is in heaven here. Can we have another scene of them lying and hugging each other happily....

How many of you wondering what will happen in the opening scene next Wed? The written preview wrote that MY would run off after rescuing her phone while SJ would give chase. Would she go for ramen with him?

Personally I doubt so, after the huge embarrassment and facing the guy she just confessed to after trying so hard to maintain that cool image in front of him. I would have want to find a quiet place to die, much less go on a date with him. Especially since he is just the type to tease her relentlessly.

I do hope he will be gentle and considerate towards her. Or maybe tell her how touched he is with her confession. This way she will feel less embarrassed. But I don't think this will happen with his flirty ramen question.

 

I'm always wondering what will happen after the confession...i've watching the ending of ep. 8 along with the preview for the countless time, & grinning like a silly person since i don't have anyone to talk about this drama in real life....so i'm so glad to be a part of this forum...

I don't think she'll go eat ramen with captain yoo since she's embarassed & shy...but i think our captain will not feel bad about it & understand her. he's just enjoy teasing her....but, whatever it is, let's just enjoy the show....DOTS Troopers, let's hang in there till wednesday! Aja aja fighting!!! :angry:

Uruk, backdrop of ‘Descendants of the Sun,’ inspired by Iraq

KBS 2TV’s popular TV series “Descendants of the Sun” staff told a local Saturday night TV show that Uruk, the series’ backdrop, was inspired by Iraq.

According to the series’ synopsis, Uruk is a remote area located at the margin of Balkan Peninsula. But a staff revealed on KBS 2TV’s “Entertainment Weekly” that Uruk was modeled after Iraq.

The staff added that using the real name of the nation is likely to cause diplomatic conflict explaining the reason for change of name to Uruk.

“Descendants of the Sun,” starring actor Song Joong-ki as a junior Special Forces officer and actress Song Hye-kyo playing a surgeon, both dispatched to the remote area, revolves around their struggle facing disasters in the area.

The filming took place in Korea and abroad. The three sets revealed in the episode are located in Taebaek, Gangwon Province and Paju, Gyeonggi Province, both remote areas in Korea, as well as Greece for filming abroad.

I seriously wish it were longer.  16 episodes is so short, but no extension makes sense.  There's no way they can film anything more months later.  Though a special with BTS clips would be nice.  They are pretty stingy with BTS videos and pictures. :tears:  I'd totally buy a director's cut DVD as long as the ending is good.

I hope that the ending is good, means the pairs are not shifted. KMY is always with YSJ and SDY is always with YMJ. Don't separate them as it will be so painful for fans like me. The beginning till the mid was running good, I love the stories and stuffs. And hopefully, the end will give us something as expected yet surprising.

I been going back and forth on whether I should post this or not but decided I should, just to show how much I love DOTS! 

Awhile back I read

Quote

an SHK article during the time she was promoting the grandmasters movie. The reporter asked if she had watched any recent kdrama and she mentioned that she had recently watched the innocent man and thought SJK is a good actor and an actor that she would like to work with.

At the time I thought they we would be a good kdrama pair. Sure enough when I heard that SJK might be in the new KES drama I really wished and hoped that SHK would be offered the female lead. 

 

Oh, grandmaster? It was 2-3 years back then. I heard that too but kinda ignore it as I thought SHK would not be paired with SJK ever. This drama then proves me wrong. Glad that she finally works with one she 'adores'.

The last episode is on 14th April. It's not even a month. God!! How much I wish it was a 20 episodes drama. Never thought I would say this as I think 20 episodes are draggy. But DoTS is that good. I guess for the first time I am gonna have withdrawal syndrome. Wish me luck!!

No extension? It's not what I want but I guess I'm okay with it. Let's just keep it the way it's supposed to be. 

I know I'll definitely be dreading the day DotS ends. This is just too good and I don't want it to ever end. It's been a really really long time since I last invested this much time and energy into a drama. And with the current pace of DotS, I'm not even sure if we have enough time for more sweet and romantic moments between our OTP. :tears:

But for now, I'll just enjoy the remaining episodes without thinking too much of its last one. Looking forward to seeing next eps. Wednesday, come sooner will you? 

@melissala It's ruining mine too. :bawling:

@melissala there should be a research on fan study about how we entrap ourselves in the drama world and conduct our daily lives. we all log into soompi willingly and for some we let others retell the scenes, highlighting the favourite scenes to rewatch the episodes in word form/ condensed form/ exaggerated form. just saw a few gifs and now i have to create time to rewatch the eps again --_--, including your backing away and moving in scene. the fault is on the leads! their subtle movements!!! gets us rethinking and wanting cos its too short.

@melissala his expression is like a tiger eyeing it's prey. He must be thinking "Sweetie you can't run away now without tasting wine or ramen" LOL

Honestly I am more concerned thinking how will MY face the whole camp than SJ.
