I’ve never been able to sit through an entire drama just for my favorite actor or actress if the story line doesn’t engage me. Even recently Yoo Seung Ho and Moon Geun Young‘s dramas lost me a few episodes in because it straddled that middle line of being okay but not all that interesting for me. I have watched entire crap dramas for Yoon Eun Hye and Hyun Bin, for example, and in those cases the drama either started off promising or was just so bad I couldn’t believe it and needed to keep watching to see it fly off a cliff like the trainwreck I can’t look away.
For that reason alone I am extra grateful that Descendants of the Sun doesn’t suck and is good enough to keep me riveted. That means nine more weeks of daily Song Joong Ki doses, which is double the pleasure since he’s been away from the small screen for nearly three years. In those years I’ve gotten happily older and wiser, while he has gotten sexier and even more intensely charismatic onscreen with those drown-in-them eyes. But he’s retained his trademark sweet cheerfulness as seen in these official BTS pictures from the production of DotS. I can’t wait to see Shi Jin in his formal military uniform, rawr!
