The audience rating of this drama was an astonishing 38.8% in South Korea. The drama was written by Kim Eun-Sook and Kim Won-Seok and directed by Lee Eung-Bok and Baek Sang-Hoon. The drama was originally produced by KBS Drama Production. The South Korean television station Korea Broadcasting Advertising Corporation declared “Descendants of the Sun” as the most-watched drama of the year.
This drama also accelerated the third wave of Hallyu and was, therefore, a household name not only in South Korea and other Asian countries but also very popular in the US and UK.
Descendants of the sun won several awards, including the Grand Prize for Television. Fans of Descendants of The Sun can finally rejoice that their favorite romantic drama is getting a second season after 6 years since the first season aired. Descendants of The Sun is one of the few K-drama series that succeeded with the multi-genre format.
It is surprising that the series was not renewed for another season, although it was the only K-drama that made it to the Top 10 most popular series of TV. The following information was provided about the release date of Descendants of the Sun season 2.
There have been rumors that Descendants of the Sun will bring new twists in season 2, based on certain sources. It is also disappointing to learn that Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo, the adorable couple from the first season of Descendants of the Sun, will not be participating in the second episode.
Descendants of the Sun Season 1 Plot
Season 1 was about the four main characters Yoo Shin Jin, Dr. Kang Mo Yeon, Seo Dae Yeong and Yoon Myung-ju. It is a story about a doctor and a special forces officer. One has to save lives and the other has to sacrifice his life to defend his country. Kang Mo Yeon, a talented and wonderful doctor, works at Haesung Hospital in cardiothoracic surgery. One day, she accidentally meets Yoo Shi Jin and there is an instant spark between them. They soon parted ways because Shi Jin was in a special unit and had no time.
After Kang Mo Yeon is discharged from her hospital by a wealthy director, she refuses to meet him. As a result, he sends her to Uruk to teach her a lesson. She meets Shi Jin and their love story begins. Many events occur, including an earthquake. The soldiers and doctors help the victims. Yoon Myung Ju, a doctor of the soldiers, is in love with Seo Dae Yeong. The story is about how the couple overcomes the obstacles and lives a happy life.
Descendants of the Sun season 2 release date
The actors have been busy with many projects. It is believed that the new cast will replace the former one. Those who have seen the international series “Descendants of the Sun Season 2” should know that season two is expected to release on October 14.
The cast and storylines were not revealed. Season one featured a sweet story about a war that changed how we view love, care, belonging. The DOTS season 2 premiere has been eagerly anticipated by fans who waited anxiously for it.
Descendants of the Sun Season 2 Cast
It is our regret that we have to tell you this, but the old cast has been replaced by a new one.
Song Joong-ki will not be available to fans after Battlefield’s release. The actor will take a long vacation and will change his mind. Perhaps the actor is just looking to be relaxed, so let him be a guy! Every k-drama fans’ favorite couple Song Jong Ki and Song Hye-kyo have unfortunately got divorced in real life so there is very low chances of seeing this pair together again for season 2.
Reports have surfaced that the Song-Song couple who starred in the original have opted not to be part of the sequel, due to scheduling conflicts and their problems in personal life. But there are also reports saying that the two are said to have met with one of season 2’s writers, and it is expected to tell the story of Captain Yoo Si-jin (Song Joong-ki) and his wife Dr. Kang Mo-yeon’s (Song Hye-kyo) family life. Nothing can be surely said about what turns this show’s season 2 can take.
The 35-year old actor Song Joong-ki became one of the biggest and notable K-drama star on the planet and since then, he has been back and forth on several projects and has even starred in successful Korean movie projects. Rejuvenating is an essential part of life. Everyone needs to take a break from time to recharge.
Kim Ji-won also stated that she is currently involved in other shoots and brand initiatives, so Song Joong-ki and the other cast members won’t be returning.
This leaves us with the conclusion that the casting groups and directors will cast new actors for the second season of Descendants of the Sun.
What can be Expected from Descendants of the Sun Season 2?
Descendants of The Sun season 1 had 16 regular episodes and 3 special episodes. Fans can expect DOTS season 2, which will have at least 15-20 episodes each.
This translates to 20 hours of waiting, and if you add in the few breaks and work hours of an average human being, the second season can be completed in just one week.
The new season was expected to be released sometime in 2017, according to some speculations. Today, however, the main news is still not clear.
Unverified reports indicate that Season 2 will see the wedding of Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo’s characters Yoo Si Jin and Kang Me Yeon. Last season’s story revolved around their characters’ love story, and the drama concluded with the whole team being called into action again after a volcanic eruption in Canada.
While some reports say that Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo are unlikely to reprise their roles in the second installment, and the spotlight will instead be on Seo Dae-Young (Jin Goo) and Yoon Myeong-Joo (Kim Ji Won).
All things considered, the 2022 launch date for ‘Descendants of The Sun‘ would be the most optimistic and exciting news for all korean drama fans. This section will be updated as soon as more information becomes available.
