I see Descendants and I see some sun this time, lol! The first official preview is here for upcoming KBS Wed-Thurs drama Descendants of the Sun, written by famed screenwriter Kim Eun Seok and starring Song Joong Ki in his first drama since military discharge opposite Song Hye Kyo. The production was financed with tons of investor money and mostly filmed on location overseas in Greece, standing in for a fictional war torn and disaster ridden Eastern European country.
I’m repeating all this to explain how high profile this drama is, and how some are looking for it to fail while others are praying it can live up to the hype. I feel the latter but am girded for the former to occur, since hype is inevitably hard to match and because so far I feel nothing from leading lady Song Hye Kyo in all her scenes when she just looks blank and distant while Song Joong Ki emotes all around her. Even second leads Jin Goo and Kim Ji Won got my interest up more even in their one second glimpse in the preview. At least this time we see explosions, guns, disasters to avert, and medical skills put to the test rather than random flirting scenes.
