Sparks fly (literally) in Descended From the Sun’s main poster
Finally, we have the main poster for KBS’s large-scale war romance melodrama Descended From the Sun, featuring its two stars, Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-gyo, playing an elite soldier and a doctor, respectively.
I feel like we’ve been hearing about this drama foreeeeeeever, but it’s only just now approaching premiere date (sorta — three more weeks to go). I suppose this is the most obvious downside to dramas going pre-produced, because we hear about these plots and get all excited, but the excitement fades the longer we have to wait to see it, and sometimes the buzz train gets missed. Not that this buzz train is getting missed. I’m pretty sure it’s just getting started. All aboard!
(I’m still for more productions trying for full pre-production, though, which means 2016 will be a big year in that realm, with a bunch of high-profile projects going that route, like Lee Young-ae’s Saimdang, Lee Jun-ki and IU’s Scarlet Heart: Goryeo, and Kim Woo-bin and Suzy’s Lightly, Ardently. Cheese in the Trap is only partially pre-produced, but it already has people pointing to it as proof of the format’s success.)
KBS is putting a lot of hopes in this show, what with its two big stars and its star writer (Kim Eun-sook of Heirs, A Gentleman’s Dignity) and PD Lee Eung-bok (Secret, School 2013). I’ll be honest and admit that I have about as little interest in this drama as I could have (this writer, she makes me so annnnngry), but that doesn’t mean I don’t see why others might like it: It’s beautiful, it’s glamorous, it’s hoping to be grandiose and romantic and sweeping.
Descended From the Sun also stars Jin Gu, Kim Ji-won, Jo Jae-yoon, Onew, Kang Shin-il, Hyun Juni, and Lee Yi-kyung. It will premiere on February 24 as a Wednesday-Thursday show.
