Descendants of the Sun is one of the hottest South Korean series to hit television. It stars Soong Jong Ki (Yoo Shi Jin), Song Hye Kyo (Kang Mo Yeon), Jin Goo (Seo Dae Young), and Kim Ji-Won (Yoon Myeong Joo). Below, we round up the reasons why everyone is obsessed with it:
1. For starters, awesome eye candy, courtesy of resident oppas, Soong Jong Ki and Jin Goo!
This is SJK's first project after completing his military service.
How can Jin Goo's gaze not melt you?
2. Their duo's bromance is something else, too!
3. The cool nicknames of Team Alpha
Big Boss, Wolf, Piccolo, Snoopy, Harry Potter, and Beauty—you'll find out who they are when you are deep into the series!
4. The ladies are your ultimate beauty pegs.
Song Hye Kyo is #PorelessSkinGoals.
Kim Ji Won is always fresh and glowing even when she's under stressful situations!
We need their skin care products, stat!
5. You'll be amazed with the cinematography.
The characters were assigned in a fictional place called Urk. It's no wonder that the beautiful archaic architecture, azure beaches, and gleaming sunshine will take your breathe away—they shot the Urk scenes in Greece.
6. You'll love the action-packed scenes!
The men serve the Special Forces team of the South Korean Military. Their scenes will give you quite the adrenaline rush—lots of blood, gunshots, and stunts!
7. Well, more oppas.
Since the story revolves around military men, you'll catch a glimpse of men that are both brawn and brains. Watch out for their daily morning jogs—pan de sal pa more!
8. There is intense medical drama.
The irony of Mo Yeon and Shi Jin love team is that Myo is a doctor who does everything to preserve life, while Shi Jin is a soldier who kills for the welfare of other people. Expect heart-stopping ER scenes!
9. Onew of SHINee gives it all.
If you're a big fan of SHINee, you'll be in awe of his acting skills. Watch out for his scenes with an Urk earthquake victim.
10. All the kilig scenes!
We can't stop gushing from all the kilig moments of both love teams!
11. The hugot lines send all the feels.
Of course, when there is kilig, deeper issues that are normally encountered by relationships will be shown. We do not want to explain this further because we do not want to spoil anything. So please do yourself a favor and get addicted!
