A Descendants of the Sun 2 is highly-expected by fans everywhere because of the success of the first season. However, it seems if there will indeed be a second one, its lead stars will not be joining.
While the first installment of the high rating Korean drama had a great story, its success is credited more because of its lead actors. Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo’s on air chemistry created buzz among both actors fans which then resulted in a very popular series.
Their fans insist that the two look good together outside the series and should be together romantically. Meanwhile, both camp’s management have clarified that the relationship between the two is by no means romantic. Both Joong Ki and Hye Kyo, however says that their relationship is good and that they get along with each other well.
In addition, Joong Ki said they are aware of what their fans think. In fact, the actor admits that they are enjoying the rumors.
Song Joong Ki Gay?
Despite Hye Kyo being older than Joong Ki, she is still arguably one of the most beautiful Korean actresses. She is well-known all over the world for her youthful appearance and glowing skin. She has been included in the top 10 most beautiful Korean actresses. Some of her contenders even younger than her.
Not only that, Hye Kyo is smart and extremely talented as an actress. She has had a great number of successful Korean dramas and movies.
So, why is Joong Ki not pursuing the 34-year old bombshell?
A theory is that the 31-year old hunk is gay. Even before Descendants of the Sun, the actor’s sexuality has been questioned. According to Movie News Guide, even as early as his 2011 work Sungkyunkwan Scandal his manliness was being nitpicked.
Recently, his closeness with Lee Kwang Soo is also said to be more than friendship. Because the two are so close, it seems Joong Ki is family. He even welcomed Kwang Soo’s newborn nephew with his Running Man co-star.

While his sexual orientation has yet been revealed by the actor, he has responded to some criticism made. The actor asks that people focus on his acting instead of preference.
Descendants of the Sun 2 Cancelled
So, if Descendants of the Sun 2 is indeed cancelled or discontinued, it is not because of Joong Ki being gay. The rumors that both Joong Ki and Hye Kyo won’t be able to join the second season is coming from his busy schedule.
Reports share that not only is he busy with a new movie he is filming called Battle Island, he is also booked for the entirety of next year. Because of his busy schedule, the actor is said to be turning down offers.
