Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo have been rumored to be getting married while the sequel of Descendants of the Sun is in the works.

There have been reports that the two lead stars of the hit Korean soap are dating in real life. Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo were spotted holding hands recently, but that was it. There has been no official confirmation from the two with regards to the state of their relationship, more so of the marriage.

Since there may be no real-life romance between the two, fans will have to content themselves with the possible sequel of Descendants of the Sun. Apparently, there is an ongoing negotiation for the two to reprise their respective roles. Perhaps viewers may witness a wedding in the sequel after all.

The public clamor for Descendants of the Sun season 2 has not ceased since its premiere season ended in April. However, there have been reports that we might not see the Song-Song couple in part two. Both are currently busy with other projects. Hye Kyo is doing a new drama with Lee Min Ho, while Joong Ki is doing a war movie entitled Battleship Island. Thus far, Jin Goo has already expressed his desire to take part in future DOTS projects. Jin Goo played the role Seo Dae-young in the series. He said he is willing to film Descendants of the Sun Season 2 or even a spin-off with onscreen partner Kim Ji-won.

The speculation on a different set of cast members was coupled with rumors that Descendants of the Sun Season 2 will have a different storyline and may depart from the military romance in the previous season. In addition, scriptwriter Kim Won Seok also turned down writing a DOST sequel. Kim said she already told the story she wanted to tell.

KBS Drama head Jung Sung-ho earlier said they are doing everything to bring back DOTS to the viewers. “KBS will strive to produce a second Descendants of the Sun to meet expectations and repay viewers,” Soompi quoted Jung saying.

Descendants of the Sun season 2 is expected to premiere in 2017.
