I usually see the mid-drama press conference from lower rated K-dramas trying to drum up interest in the show as a last chance hurrah. In the case of Descendants of the Sun, the highest rated prime time K-drama in over three years, gathering the popular main cast together for a media chat is all about the fan service and striking while the iron is hot. And boy is it red hot as DotS actually broke 30% ratings AGB in Seoul with last week’s episodes, but of course that magical number of 30% will need to be breached nationwide to fully cement the drama as a modern day ratings miracle.
I loved seeing the four leads Song Joong Ki, Song Hye Kyo, Kim Ji Won, and Jin Goo reunited for a sit down chat, each looking so casual yet undeniably gorgeous in their star appeal. Aside from my opinions on each of the lead’s acting so far in the drama, the consistent success has remained their great chemistry with each other that works wonders in selling even the most far-fetched story line. Kudos and congrats to the cast and crew for the lightning fast success of DotS, with an eye out to see how high it can still potentially go.
