According to some reputable reports, the hugely popular “Descendants Of The Sun” will soon make its return in a movie form in China.
The show caused a sensation around the world, and in China alone the estimated viewership was over 2 billion.
Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo will not be reprising their roles, instead the production will have to find substitutes. This in my opinion is always worrisome, because the huge success of the show is undoubtedly to the credit of the actors’ chemistry. I don’t know if the show would have been as big as it was if any other actors would have played the part. Turning such a gem into a movie and hoping to get the same magic is dangerous and in all likelihood not happen. The production will have to take the script into a slightly different direction for the audience to not compare the movie to the original show and thus be disappointed.
It will be interesting to see how this one will play out. I am keeping my fingers crossed for the Chinese version to do the Korean one justice.
