Descendants of the Sun stars Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo reunited at Chengdu fan meet. The event took place on 17 June.

During the interaction session, the 34-year-old actress gushed about Joong Ki. She said: "I had a sense of Song Joong Ki's popularity through the internet and news articles, but actually coming here and seeing this for myself makes me feel happier and more nervous than him."

"I was looking forward to meeting him since so many people told me good things about him, and it turned out that he was an even better person than I'd thought. He's very sincere and thoughtful when filming. I think he's really cool," she added.

In the hit drama, Joong Ki played the lead role as Captain Yoo Shi Jin, and Hye Kyo reprised the role of doctor named Kang Mo-Yeon. Meanwhile, there has been constant reports that the two are dating.

Rumours that they are romantically involved started in March after the two were reportedly seen together in New York. Joong-ki's agency confirmed that the couple are not an item in real life. The statement from UAA Korea read: "Song Joong-ki is her good colleague with whom she's done a TV series together."

"She was on vacation in New York and Song Joong Ki happened to be there. They had a meal with other friends, and we cannot believe it has turned into a scandal. There is no need for us to consider it seriously. We will take it as a sign of fans' interests. That story has been going around for a long time now. Media outlets have asked us about it and we have told them many times that it is not true," the letter read.
