Drama fans began requesting a director‘s cut even before the show had its finale in April. But previously, the broadcaster and production company had expressed difficulties involved in such a move. However, they decided to produce the new version thanks to fans’ continuous requests.

KBS2 TV drama “Descendants of the Sun,” starring Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo, centers on the romance between an army soldier and a doctor set in a fictional war-torn country.
