Descendants of the Sun star Song Joong-ki has responded to rumours that he is dating co-star Song Hye-kyo. The 30-year-old actor admitted that there is no truth to the relationship reports.
During an interview with KBS News 9, Joong-ki revealed that the two are not romantically involved. He said: "Hye-Kyo and I are both aware of those rumors, and we are really enjoying them. We even talk about them during company dinners."
"I think that the viewers think that because of the overwhelming positive response that the drama has gotten," he added.
Adding on, the interviewer asked Joong-ki which co-star's characters does he feel more attracted to, Doctor Kang Mo-Yeon or Yoon Myeong-Joo. In the hit drama, Joong-ki plays the lead role as Captain Yoo Shi Jin, and Hye-kyo reprises the role of doctor named Kang Mo-Yeon. He replied: "I didn't know I'd get asked this question on KBS news 9."
"Well, since I've shared so many emotional scenes with Kang Mo-Yeon... If I don't say that, she'll probably get mad. Of course, I choose Doctor Kang Mo-Yeon," he added.
Descendants of the Sun airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 22:00 (Korean Time). The finale will air in Korea and China on 14 April and in Singapore on 15 April on video app, Viu.
