Jin Goo and Kim Ji-won’s Chemistry in Descendants of the Sun

Little by little, they finally fall in love with each other and begin their love story despite the ups and downs of being a soldier and a doctor in the middle of the war.
On the other hand, there’s Seo Dae-young, the soldier who secretly has a relationship with the female soldier, Yoon Myung-Joo. Even though they fall in love with each other, Yoon Myung-Joo’s father, who is the top highest rank lieutenant, is against their relationship.
