When a favorite star gets uber popular I always feel bittersweet, happy for the new level of success but wistful of the days when only select fans were crazed with affection. Since Descendants of the Sun premiered Song Joong Ki has rocketed to a new stratosphere where his popularity is currently still tied with the drama. The success or lack thereof of upcoming period war movie Battleship Island will be a test to his project picking more than anything, as an actor he has never failed to deliver more than the character and script asks for and in this movie cast he’s surrounded by top notch mates in So Ji Sub, Hwang Jung Min, and Lee Jung Hyun. Certainly the news of his impending marriage to top star Song Hye Kyo will be appended to any news around him for the foreseeable future but I hope his acting career continues to build on the much deserved success of all his smartly selected projects has brought. Another added bonus is more news coverage of him which I will never get bored of, the latest for Magazine M showcases the entire Battleship cast but I’m loving the quiet intensity of Song Joong Ki where his expressive eyes shine so beautifully.
