Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo didn’t meet on the set of Descendants of the Sun. In fact, they met way before the script reading.

According to Korean news outlet Channel A, the pair had met back in 2013 when they were introduced by a mutual friend. The friend in question? Actor Jo In Sung.


In Sung had acted with Hye Kyo in the 2013 drama That Winter The Wind Blows. The actor and Joong Ki are known to be the best of friends and have even travelled abroad together a few times.

In Sung had reportedly introduced the two after Joong Ki visited the set of That Winter The Wind Blows.

But that’s not the only thing In Sung did.

The veteran actor was reportedly approached for the role of Yoo Shi Jin in Descendants of the Sun but turned it down. In fact, a few actors had to turn down the role due to scheduling conflicts since the drama involved overseas filming.

According to the same news outlet, In Sung had recommended Joong Ki for the role.
