Song Hye Kyo is reportedly set to reunite with Descendants of the Sun writer Kim Eun Sook in a new drama series planned for the end of 2021.
According to an exclusive report from Ilgan Sports, Kim Eun Sook will be writing a new drama that is set to start filming in the second half of 2021, and will air in either late 2021 or early 2022, and she has chosen Song Hye Kyo as her female lead.
Song Hye Kyo and Kim Eun Sook worked together in KBS’s 2016 hit drama Descendants of the Sun, which kicked off another round of the Hallyu Wave throughout the world and recorded impressive 38.6% viewer ratings. Even to this day, Descendants of the Sun has one of the highest viewer ratings for a weekday drama, no matter the broadcast channel.
In addition to the combination of Song Hye Kyo and Kim Eun Sook, the drama’s PD is also a hotshot in the industry. Ahn Gil Ho will lead the directing of the drama, and he is well known for multiple dramas such as Memories of the Alhambra, Stranger 1 and 2, Record of Youth, and WATCHER. Production will be led by Studio Dragon. Due to the impressive combination, expectations are already very high for the drama. Currently, the drama is still casting the lead and supporting roles, which will be finalized before filming begins.
