After his successful appearance in the hit Korean drama "Descendants of the Sun", actor Song Joong-ki is extremely busy with his on-going Asian tour.

Gamenguide reported on Wednesday that the 30-year-old actor is ready for his scheduled visit to Bangkok, Thailand, on May 7. Soon after that, he will be visiting Beijing, where he is known for his performance following the success of the "Descendants of the Sun."

Although many of you have come to know about him recently as the dashing Army Capt. Yoo Shi-jin in the recent hit series "Descendants of the Sun," he didn't receive this fame overnight. The actor has shown his versatility in diverse acting roles since his debut in 2008.

The recent drama has played a huge part in Song's success. His cute character as an Army Captain has charmed the viewers across the globe. He has started receiving offers for a number of projects and endorsements after this.

While Song is enjoying this happy hour of his career, many people have expressed their concern for the actor's health. The netizens feel that the actor is looking tired and sick at his recent appearances.

Apart from all the commercial endorsements and media appearances, the actor is also busy practicing his scenes for his upcoming film titled "Detective Hong Gil-dong" This was announced at a press conference held on Monday.

According to Korea Herald, another film titled "Battleship Island" is also lined up in his bag. "Battleship Island" is a period film about Korea's Japanese occupation. Song Joong-ki would be playing the character of an independence fighter who would take the responsibility of rescuing the Korean fighters who were captured by Japan. Song's character will be named as Park Moo-young.

The actor considers Park's role a dream come true. In an interview with Gamen Guide the actor said, "I really want to do a period piece set in the Japanese occupation era. With this film, I've cleared one longtime goal."

However, he made it very clear that he won't be leaving his pretty boy image as he had promised his fans to maintain his "young-looking skin". "I am going to prevent aging as much as possible," he added.

Well, considering the fact that Song is the endorser of top cosmetic brands in China and South Korea it might not be that difficult for him to "prevent aging".
