"Descendants of the Sun" marks the K-Drama return for Song Joong Ki and the latest teaser for the upcoming series shows off his post-military body.
On January 21, KBS2 released the steamy teaser featuring the 30-year-old actor in provocative states of undress, as he transitions from doing pull-ups in the gym to the shower, before encountering Song Hye Kyo.
"Descendants of the Sun" differentiates its self as one of the first Korean dramas to air after the completion of production.
This distinguishing quality is omnipresent through each trailer, which resembles the format of a blockbuster film promo reel, as opposed to some of the haphazard vignettes that have been released by other K-Drama productions.
There is a naturalistic feel to the story within the 40-second short.
While photo and video footage highlighted combat sequences from the series along with playful banter while this preview captures the potential of Song Joong Ki as a romantic, leading man.
He portrays Captain Yoo Shi Jin, a U.N. peacekeeper, who becomes embroiled in a mission to defend the capital of a fictitious country.
Prior to his military enlistment, Song captured the hearts of filmgoers with his portrayal of Chul Soo, a feral teen with mystical powers in the 2012 breakout hit, "A Werewolf Boy."
His previous television roles include Kang Ma Ru, a medical student whose life is negatively transformed by his first love in "The Innocent Man," a series which is also referred to by the title, "Nice Guy."
However, one of his most notable television characters to date is Gu Yong Ha, a mischievous upperclassman in the period school drama, "Sungkyunhwan Scandal."
Song Hye Kyo is Kang Mo Yeon, a physician who joins the military effort, through Doctors Without Borders.
"Descendants of the Sun" will premiere on February 24, airing on Wednesdays and Thursdays in the 9:55 p.m. time slot that is currently occupied by "The Merchant Gaekju 2015."
