It’s nice to see Song Joong Ki out and about doing entertainment activities while deep into the filming of upcoming KBS drama Descendants of the Sun. It’s already the start of September and not a peep on the promotion of the drama, which goes to further confirm the recent insider discussions that the drama will be airing in the beginning of 2016 rather than October 2015 as originally stated. The reason is both due to the large scale pre-production and to get the approval from China’s SARFT after submitting the complete drama so that DotS can air in Korea and China at the same time.
Song Joong Ki attended a professional baseball game this week in Daegu while wearing the uniform of the Hanhwa Eagles, there to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. That he manages to pull off orange is a feat in itself, but the more noticeable visual is that he’s back to looking flower boy skinny again. Where’d the bulk and muscles go from his army discharge? It wouldn’t be all that concerning but for him playing an army commander in DotS, and with his baby-face plus slim physique it’s going to harder to visually buy his big boss on the military base attitude. Oh wells, maybe he’s all about the laser eye intensity and less the type to use his muscles to keep him men in check.
