Song Hye Kyo Confirmed To Join New Drama By “Descendants of the Sun” Writer
South Korean actress Song Hye Kyo is possibly making a strong comeback this year. Not only is she in talks to lead the upcoming drama Now, We Are Breaking Up, but she is also confirmed to star in another project written by Descendants of the Sun screenwriter Kim Eun Sook. It will be helmed by director Ahn Gil Ho, who worked on Memories of Alhambra and Record of Youth. While the male lead has yet to be determined, the combination of the three is already a hot topic.
In particular, the news of Eun Sook and Hye Kyo’s reunion is taking the internet by storm since their previous collaboration on Descendants of the Sun was a major hit across Asia. Understandably, fans have sky-high expectations for the two’s upcoming drama.
Reportedly, Hye Kyo has been carefully considering her offers as she has taken a two-year hiatus from acting. During this time, her divorce matters with Descendants of the Sun actor Song Joong Ki was highly publicized, so she may be motivated to leave a lasting impression with her next project to encourage the public to focus more on her work. Starring in a drama written by Eun Sook is a strategically smart choice since the star writer is known for creating several award-winning and buzz-worthy rom-coms.
Furthermore, the director has also made a name for himself with his well-received directing skills over the years. As such, the collaboration between these three veterans should surely bring about a drama that viewers would look forward to. However, fans have to hold their horses as the new series is to commence shooting near the end of this year or early next year, according to a source.
