Bromances have been everywhere in dramas, and to great success, with unlikely, playful friendships between two guys bringing so much fun to the viewer experience. But just when we thought we knew bromances, we get Yoo Si Jin (Song Joong Ki) and Seo Dae Young (Jin Goo) in “Descendants of the Sun,” bringing all the comic relief, all the feels, and all the best of friendship. All while maintaining their professional soldier speak. Friends or comrades? Never one and not the other.

Seo Dae Young: I’m not escaping by my own will, but by command. I am sorry that I have to leave you at a time like this. I will report for the transfer right now.
Yoo Si Jin: I’ve been dismissed from my post so I am no longer your immediate supervisor.. So what report do I need?
