Descendants of the Sun has been a phenomenal series not only in Korea but also worldwide. That is why it is not a surprise that its lead star, Song Joong Ki, was always vocal about the drama’s huge effect in his career.
During the 2016 KBS Drama Awards, Song Joong Ki mainly mentioned the series. According to Inquirer, Descendants of the Sun actor said, “To know that we’re loved not only in Korea, but in other Asian countries as well brings me joy and a huge sense of honor, so I can’t say that I’m disappointed with anything.”
Award Joong Ki Expected for Descendants of the Sun
The 31-year-old actor said that he is aiming to win the Best Couple Award with his SongSong other half, Song Hye Kyo. Fortunately, they did win it with other pairs. Not only that, they are the sole couple to win another category called Asia’s Best Couple Award.
Joongki explained during the event’s red carpet interview that since DOTS mainly focuses on romance, winning the category is a proof of how good they portrayed the roles.
Fans want SongSong Couple to be for Real
On the other hand, it is no surprise that avid followers of the DOTS fever root for the real relationship between Joong Ki and Hye Kyo. Until now, SongSong Couple’s possible off-screen romance is still the talk of the town.
According to Asia One, PMI, an online research company conducted a study about several onscreen pairs. In result, the DOTS love team tops as the most supported pair by fans. This is base on the year-end award shows conducted by the three big networks.
As per the latter source, the survey’s participants include 2,000 men and women between ages 20-60 years. They were asked which couple they wanted to have a relationship in real life. The SongSong couple reportedly gained 16.4 percent in first place.
Other couples mentioned Moonlight Drawn By Clouds starrers Park Bo Gum and Kim Yoo Jung in third. In the end, avid fans must watch out what the future holds for SongSong couple after the success in Descendants of the Sun.
