Speculations are rife regarding the casting of the sequel of super hit film Train to Busan. Gong Yoo played the lead in the first instalment while there are rumours that Descendants of the Sun actress Song Hye Ko will join Yoo in the second part.
During a recent fashion event, Hye Ko expressed her interest in working with the Goblin star for which he reportedly appreciated her thoughts. Ever since the interview, there are strong rumours that Hye Ko and Yoo will share the screen space for the second instalment. And to add more, the two stars are yet to sign their next project so fans are hoping to see them pairing on screen soon.
Well, that is one side of the coin. On the other side, there are reports that Gong Yoo will be replaced by Song Hye Kyo's lead man from Descendants of the Sun, Song Joong Ki. A report on Korea Portal stated that Yoo's character was in a very complicated state in the first part and the makers are planning to make the second instalment a separate film rather than a continuation.
