Did The Song Couple Marry Because of Jo In-sung?
Although they were first paired in the Descendants of the Sun hit drama, Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-Kyo turned out to have met long before that. They were met through a fellow actor, Jo In-sung. Soompi reported that the meeting of lovers who will get married in late October was revealed through the Heard It Through Grapevine program that aired on Channel A.
At that time, the panelists were discussing the news of the Song-Song couple’s marriage. One of the panelists revealed that the two lovebirds first met in 2013 introduced by In Sung. At that time, In Sung was starring in the drama That Winter, The Wind Blows and Hye Kyo was one of his opponents. In Sung’s role didn’t just reach it. The panelist revealed that Jo In Sung also united Joong Ki and Hye Kyo.
The panelist called In Sung who advised Descendants of the Sun’s production staff to choose Joong Ki to be the lead actor in pairs with Hye Kyo. “Many actors, such as Jo In-sung, Kim Woo-bin, Lee Min-ho, and Kang Dong-won were asked to play Captain Yoo Si-jin in Descendants of the Sun,” said the panelist.
“However, many of them rejected the offer because the drama was produced abroad. In Sung then recommended Joong Ki to the production staff,” continued the panelist. Descendants of the Sun is one of the Korean dramas that took pictures outside of South Korea. Most of the 16 episodes of this drama took pictures in Greece as a conflict area. On the other hand, In Sung is indeed one of Joong Ki’s close friends, besides Kwang Soo. They became friends when playing together in the film A Frozen Flower in 2008. Since then, Joong Ki and In Sung has been getting closer than ever.
