Why Didn’t Ji Sung’s Cameo in “Descendants of the Sun” Happen?


Among the many cameos that happened in KBS’s hit drama “Descendants of the Sun,” actor Ji Sung wasn’t one of them, even though he was originally considered for one.

On April 18, the “Descendants of the Sun” director of photography Kim Si Hyung told KBS Entertain’s “GotTV” that Ji Sung was originally supposed to play the role of the South Korean president.

Kim Si Hyung revealed, “Most of the cameos were actors who were close to the cast or the crew. [Ji Sung] worked with me during ‘Secret,’ and he also knows the [‘Descendants of the Sun’] PD, so we pushed for him to have a cameo.”

So why did Ji Sung end up not getting one after all? “He is too attractive, so we started thinking that that was too far in the realm of fantasy, and the plans fell through. We ended up using a musical actor instead,” Kim Si Hyung said.

It’s too bad Ji Sung didn’t get the chance to appear in “Descendants of the Sun”!
