Now this is what I call a promising promo! Descendants of the Sun is premiering in T-minus 8 hours and the production finally did something that piques my interest fully. The drama released a third and final poster mere hours before the first episode premiere that is way better than the first two, and by a long shot. It shows male lead Song Joong Ki kissing his costar Song Hye Kyo in what appears to be a sudden swoop movement. It’s something I figured out be in a Kim Eun Sook written drama, an alpha male making the move on the object of his interest, and that is not an action that I don’t find objectionable in and of itself so I’m open to seeing this kiss in context. I don’t have a problem conceptually with Kim Eun Sook’s propensity for grabby alpha male types, that’s her thing and I’m cool with that because in some of her dramas it’s worked for me. Here all I see are rainbows and unicorns anytime Song Joong Ki shows up so if he wants to sneak on kiss on his girl then fine by me. I sure hope Song Hye Kyo’s character is open to the kiss and does her fair share of reciprocating if she feels the same way back.
The production released a teaser for a second OST song, “Everytime” by Chen of EXO. Chen’s OST song for It’s Okay, It’s Love is one of my favorite OST songs of all time and this one sounds mighty catchy as well.
