On March 30, Song Joong Ki guested on KBS 1TV‘s “News9,” a prominent newscast that airs every night at 9 p.m. KST. He is the first celebrity to appear on the show in person, which is an indication of his popularity.
Song Joong Ki laughs when he’s asked about the dating rumors between his “Descendants of the Sun” co-star Song Hye Kyo and himself. He good-naturedly responds, “The cast and crew of the drama meet up a lot these days for dinner, and it’s become a topic of conversation for Song Hye Kyo and me over drinks. In my opinion, that kind of response happened because many people love our drama. We’re enjoying the situation.”
One of the announcers then asks whether he would prefer Kang Mo Yeon (played by Song Hye Kyo), or Yoon Myung Joo (played by Kim Ji Won) if given the choice. Taken aback at the sudden question, Song Joong Ki laughs while saying, “I never expected to receive a question like this on ‘News9.'”
He explains that he would probably choose Kang Mo Yeon, because he worked with Song Hye Kyo the most, but cheekily adds, “If I didn’t respond like this, she will probably become sulky.”
