It was recently revealed that the makers of the record-breaking series Descendants of the Sun are planning to produce the second edition of the popular show. The military-themed series starring Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo was a huge hit globally.
In an interview with Sports Chosun, Seo Woo Sik who serves as the CEO of Barunson Entertainment, talked what to expect in the second season. Woo Sik said: "While a lot of people can make an effort now, for a second 'Descendants' to emerge, I believe there needs to be an independent organization within the broadcasting company. They need to make a system where projects can go on for extended periods of time."
Woo Sik feels the five-part KBS documentary Super Fish is a great example for the sequel. He added: "I was completely amazed when I saw that documentary. For the entire, extended time while it was in production, there must have been changes in management and people who were opposed to the project. They overcame all of that to bring the project to fruition. The second 'Descendants' must be approached in the same way. There needs to be a system and atmosphere in place to nurture long-term projects, rather than focus on immediate results."
