Descended From the Sun teases love and war

Or is it love as war? Probably both, in this drama. Descended From the Sun got an extended preview at the KBS Drama Awards, because it’s (hopefully) the next big show on their 2016 drama slate. They’ve got heavy-hitters Song Hye-gyo (That Winter, The Wind Blows), Song Joong-ki (Nice Guy) in his army comeback, hit writer Kim Eun-sook, and PD Lee Eung-bok of Secret together in a 100% pre-produced drama shot overseas. It would be an understatement to say that expectations are riding high.

The drama is about the love story between an elite soldier (Song Joong-ki) and a doctor (Song Hye-gyo) deployed to a fictional foreign country at a time of war. The teaser opens on Song Hye-gyo’s oath as a doctor, and then the two leads meet and immediately begin to flirt. Song Joong-ki: “You must not have a boyfriend if you’re a doctor, because you’re too busy.” Song Hye-gyo: “You must not have a girlfriend if you’re a soldier, because you work so hard.”

But then the more she’s around him, the more she finds herself in increasingly dangerous situations. She decides that he’s too dangerous to be around and she doesn’t like being in peril, but admits that she finds him appealing whenever they make eye contact. He asks whether he should apologize or confess for the stolen kiss…

But in no time Song Hye-gyo is held hostage and crying with a gun at her head. (The English narration is annoying, because we get the drift — he’s dangerous to be around.) The teaser ends on a dramatic cliffhanger, with Song Joong-ki out in the field and not answering his radio after an attack. The scale does look big, as promised, and this time we got a glimpse at a love story that could be sweeping — or okay, at least bantery and cheeky with a potential for sparks, war or not.

Descended From the Sun follows Master of Trade—Inn 2015 on Wednesdays and Thursdays in February.

Got to admit I was pretty impressed after the first watch but the second and third times just emphasized how bland Song Hye-kyo can be. Song Joong-ki could romance the pants off anyone so this does seem promising, even if Kim Eunsook's idea of romance is a little...bleh.

Gotta to agree with you. Wish the chemistry is coming thru more on SHK part. But SJK's definitely bringing his A game. I get goosebumps watching his expressions in this trailer. Been waiting earnestly for this and even with the expectations riding sky high, I'm hopeful :)

I see the mis-match in chemistry, too, but I don't know if anything can fix it because SHG is just naturally cool and reserved...haven't seen her yet where I didn't get the feeling she was standing back, reserved, behind that beautiful icy mask. She's at her warmest when she laughs - hopefully he can make her laugh a lot.

Am I new or has Song Hye-kyo always been this bland and expressionless?? I can't even feel her fear! Song Joong-ki might be good, but not good enough to romance almost a literal tree. I didn't realize I'd have to worry about acting in this drama. As if the writing of the lead's character (or two if we get unlucky) isn't going to suck going by KES's past record.

Anyway, the trailer is soo dramatic lol. The song and the voice overs topped by sound effects made me giggle a bit. This one reminds me of Road number 1, but let's hope the show is much better than that.

I do like her (there's just something about her that I like idk), but she tends to be more on the blank side. Her eyes are a bit dull of emotions and sometimes it works in her favor like playing a blind lady or for melancholy, but overall I don't find them very stimulating and for a warzone drama she might need to look more alert than that.

No matter what she won't likely be the worst thing about this drama though, if history teaches us anything it would be that KES would have that honor lol.

I have no real issue with her acting, but no you're not new, as far as I can remember she has been slammed for her "bland and expressionless" delivery. At the beginning of her career she was also considered one of those pretty but talentless stars.

Calm down, she's fine. It's just a 3 min trailer, how are you going to judge her acting from this?

She was praised a lot for her performance in her last drama - That Winter, the Wind Blows. She's improved immensely in the past few years.

Some users on here are so unnecessarily critical at times (especially with female actresses). I always read posts about new dramas eagerly and then I scrolled down only to be met with negativity. I don't remember DB being like this before.

The irony is that Song Hye-kyo is actually a pretty decent actress, and suits melodramas to a T.

I find it funny that some people bitch her and Park Shin-hye out (when they're actually good at their jobs but not great) but will bend over backwards to excuse crappy idol-actresses for whom it's an achievement to even manage to face the right way on camera.

I think the difference is that Song Hyekyo is in her 30s and she's been in this industry longer so she should be further along by now. She's not a bad actress and I like her. I just hold people who have been in the industry longer at a higher standard.

Idol-actresses are given a hard time here too, though. I don't really see people bending over backwards to defend them at DB, or maybe I haven't been in the right posts.

I don't know how PSH and SHK get bitched out so much, when they can actually deliver decent performances in melos.

Maybe it's because they started out as actresses, so the standards are higher whereas for idol actors as long as they can recite lines they're given a pass even when the performance is severely lacking.

Honestly, I think part of it is that a lot of these intl. sites that discuss k-entertainment news like kpop and dramas are so overly saturated with kpop stans defending the acting of their biases no matter how tragic it is, so the opinions look super skewed.

0

Bingo - you hit the nail on the head, idol-actresses are generally judged by a MUCH lower standard, except for the ones who actually turn out good (a la Jung Eunji) who then get bitched out for any stumbling blocks in their performances after that.

Someone like Kim Go-eun or Park So-dam (rookie actresses) would get torn a new one on here for putting in a performance on the level of a crappy idol-actor's 'best' performance (you know, the kind that has people saying 'she's improved!'). In terms of public reception on db, it actually pays to be crap because people will defend you no matter what, while if you're good there are always people waiting to say you're not that good.

0

I wouldn't compare her to Park Shin-hye necessarily--I think it's debatable whether PSH is good at her job--but she established herself as a legitimate actress in That Winter. Sure, she's a bit of a late bloomer, but she deserves the benefit of the doubt, at the very least. And anyway, I don't think we should look for an acting epiphany from anyone in a Kim Eun-sook drama.

I don't think people here are necessarily comparing PSH's and SHK's acting, just the amount of hate that certain actresses get whereas others could put out a similar performance and get praise.

As for PSH, yes I don't think she's oscar worthy, but to say she's not good at her job is a bit extra. I think people need to learn the difference between someone straight up not knowing how to act vs. not liking the style of someone's acting. You may not like her style, but to say she can't act is just a straight up lie (see Pinocchio or FBND, or any of her films).

PSH can emote with her eyes, can serve in melos, and is charismatic, which is not something I can say about most of the actresses, idols or not, her age.

Anyway, I think people forget that PSH is only 25 years old because she's been acting for so long and started getting lead roles at a very young age, yet she can STILL out act people like Kim Tae Hee and Han Ga In who are in their mid-30s LOL, so the praise she gets in Korea is not unwarranted, considering the options they have.

0

why can't we compare PSH and SHK? lol just because PSH is younger?
SHK sucked when she was younger... PSH is better than her younger days.
I'm sure she can be better when she reach her age. Just give her the right role like SHK in Winter.
Actors only shine when they are given the right roles

0

I don't think outacting Han Ga-in is something to brag about--a rock could outact Han Ga-in. And I say her skills are debatable because clearly we have a difference of opinion here--I've seen her best work but still don't think she's remotely good at acting, whereas several of you obviously disagree with me.

I personally wouldn't compare the two because while Park Shin-hye might be better than Song Hye-kyo was (which is also debatable, and also nothing to brag about), Song Hye-kyo has had a breakthrough and deserves to be judged as her current self when discussing her future projects. If Park Shin-hye someday gives the kind of performance Song Hye-kyo gave in That Winter, I will gladly count her as a legitimate actress as well.

0

I don't think out-acting HGI or KTH is anything to brag about either (I was using it as a point of reference), but when these are some of the supposed "representative actresses" in the country and are in their mid-30s and have yet to give serviceable performances, yet, imo, an actress close to 7-10 years their junior can give better performances (even if they are still lacking to some)...that says a lot, and I think is a credit to PSH.

Anyway, I think to say she's "not remotely good at acting" is ridiculous, but you're entitled to your opinion, and probably think that I'm ridiculous for saying she's good.

0

Lol, babe you need to calm down. It's an opinion: she was bland and expressionless in a 3 minute video where she was one of the two focal points. Sawry if I hurt you feelings but she really needs to work on her acting because she's such a veteran. Maybe she'll be much better in the drama, and you can count me in the happy list :)

It's a kdrama, everything will be too clean, what did you expect? And it might surprise your judgemental way of thinking, but women don't go to the army because they're ugly, they go to serve their country, so there are plenty of beautiful women in the army.

I find it kind of hilarious; SJK's always been a noona-killer, but unlike some guys who get that title due to popular demand or a particular drama role, SJK genuinely seemed to prefer women who were older than him on variety shows.

I wonder if it's a side-effect of being a smart kid, he's been more challenged by women who had a couple years of knowledge on him or who will put him in his place despite his intelligence.

Personally I don't care about what gender is older, I care more about the age gap overall. Four years is nothing.

SHK turns into bland and expresionless? I think it's more because her character's writing. I know SHK can be lively and lovely too, just unfortunate this time KES penned the drama. Park Shin Hye also turned to be blank, uninspiring and annoying Candy girl in Heirs and we know she can good in other projects. So I think it's more of a character's problem, rather than SHK though yes to some SHK can be quite bland and cold.

Cannot wait until this gets wrapped up and aired so SJK can finally be free to move on to better if not bigger things. I hope this does well for his sake, but it's more than a little irritating that he's chosen to come back with Kim Eun-sook of all people. Beyond the fact that she can't write...her scripts always have such mean-spirited overtones, and I really, really don't want to see him play one of her creeps.

i love song hye-kyo, and i hope she turns out to be right when she said that this character was a grown up version of her full house character. loved her in full house—perfect casting for the leads, that show. and when i went to college a couple of years after that aired, so many asian americans i met were talking about that show, or wanting to watch it. it's a classic...

now, onto kim ji-won. such a good actress, and SO FREAKING PRETTY, so why hasn't she caught her huge break yet? she deserves to be as big as a CF star as suzy, and fielding offers left and right for high profile projects. i really, really like her. and she's just so super pretty (and i'm a girl), i want to see more of her everywhere.

she's like a mini kim tae-hee, with the big eyes and small face, but with her own distinctive charms. i hope she hits it big sooner than later...!

While everyone is praising Song Joong Ki sky high and putting down Song Hye Gyo, I think he's as bad as she is from what I can see from these trailers.

His expressions in those face offs and critical moments were so placid. He looked like he was mulling over what to order for breakfast rather than being in a life and death situation. Sorry, Joong Ki, those shades and uniform do not make an actor. Only fan girls will swoon and call it good. He fared better in the "romantic" scenes but knowing Kim Eun Soo, those will just end up crap.

So much for the hype.

Do you expect anyone to produce a good performance in a Kim Eun-sook drama? That's like biting into a piece of styrofoam and expecting it to taste like a shrimp cracker lol. Her dramas are loaded with enough PPL and pop culture references to make it rain money, while her writing is emotionally, intellectually, and morally bankrupt--there's never anything to work with. There's no point in comparing Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo's relative merits when an actor/actress with the tiniest fraction of their talent would be wasted on KES.

I may not expect well written characters in a KES drama but why can't I expect a good performance? A good actor will break out of the styrofoam and let you taste the scrumptious shrimp cracker within. A lesser one would look like a shrimp cracker and taste like styrofoam. Case in point,look at Park Sung Woong in Hidden Identity. The drama was poorly written and characters meh to say the least. Kim Bum who focused more on how broody and manly he looked, was the shrimp cracker that tasted like styrofoam. Park Sung Woong did the opposite, his poker face character looked like styrofoam and tasted like shrimp cracker.

Actually yes. Granted if SJK is an idol actor or rookie, he might not be able to rise above the script, direction whatsoever. We are talking about an actor who won Top Excellence award and surely, he can perform well despite a crappy script. He might be hampered by a lousy character and talk like a jerk but why should script prevent him from looking anything other than someone who is a life and death situation? I don't even want to criticize the script here and those scenes didn't require lines, I just found him pointing the gun(and having a gun pointed at him) so insipid. Unless, Kim Eun Soo or PD insists that his character act this way. Pretty and cool even in the most dangerous situation and SJK agrees with them then I concede.

Okay, fair enough. We'll revisit the shrimp cracker vs. styrofoam debate when the thing actually airs lol :)

I will say that a lot of decent-great actors and actresses have worked with her and done nothing of note. I've heard that even Jeon Do-yeon wasn't that great in Lovers in Prague.

I think this trailer is so ridiculous but at the same time I'm happy we got it because those teasers before were horrible.

With SHK... I can't lie and say I like her "acting". As some already pointed out she has been in the industry for 20 YEARS. 20!! I always expect her to suddenly blow me away with her performance but she isn't. Still I hope she will surprise me in DotS. But I say this: if you can't deliver emotions in your eyes than what kind of actor/actress can you be?

I don't really get where the comparison with PSH is coming from. Two different actresses and again SHK: 20 YEARS in the industry.

Anyways... some said SJK isn't acting good either in the trailer. Well with him he CAN act with his eyes. It's all there. I'm sure he will deliver in the actual drama. Did the trailer show the best of him? No it didn't but with him I'm not scared at all. With SHK I am. But again if she suddenly rocks this drama then I'm the last to complain.

For the actual drama: it's pretty vanilla and KBS is playing it safe. Understandably so with the big budget. Will it be the big hit? We'll see. I just know KBS will do anything to ensure its success. It would be funny though if suddenly other dramas would beat DotS in the rating game. :)

The visuals in this drama are stunning!!! (cinematography and actors/actresses, LOL)

Well, with so much money invested into the drama, I hope it'll have a good turnout.

Excited to watch this!!!

Honestly, this trailer didn't give me the hype I was looking for.....something seems off somehow. Song Hye Kyo is not giving me the acting I would like. SJK looks amazing and is great as always. The whole thing seems over the top in a bad way. However, I will probably watch it out of curiosity.

I really like both of the leads and I'm hoping that it's just the teaser that's making me question my desire to watch it.

Wow. A 100% pre-produced drama? That's pretty rare these days! I have doubts about the credibility of Song Joong-ki as an elite soldier even if I know he just came out of the army and he's a great actor (only saw him in Will it Snow at Christmas, minor role, Sungkyungwan Scandal, and the movie Werewolf Boy, in which he was amazing and had AWESOME chemistry with Park Bo-young, who, by the way, is one of the greatest actresses out there)... and Song Hye-gyo, well, she's pretty. Oh how that always helps.....

I hope the scenario's great and that the drama turned out well though.

I understand the mixed reviews since this is Kim Eunsook's and I'm not her biggest fan too, but I gotta admit that this drama does look so damn polished and well, exclusive. I'm already loving this fictional foreign country even though I only see a glimpse of it.

In short, this drama is taking itself so seriously and I like that. So far. I still don't know about the story but Joongki's stare alone is enough to make me yell "I'M TOTALLY SOLD!"

I'm definitely watching this but I'm trying to keep my expectation low (but Joongki is not helping)

There isn't much Kim Jiwon though </3

Yong Pal teaser is still a winner. No matter how the story ends. It was intriguing, beautiful and love the heroine out fit so much.

Some said this teaser is over the top. I agree with them.

I'm here for the second leads (as much as I too love Joong-ki) so I need a preview that shows me more Jin Goo (blink and you miss him) and Kim Ji Won. Please let the two have a love line and leave SJK and SHK to the their dangerous love.
