Song Joong Ki Shares How Song Hye Kyo Supported Him For New Drama “Arthdal Chronicles”
At the May 28 press conference for tvN’s upcoming drama “Arthdal Chronicles,” Song Joong Ki appeared alongside co-stars Jang Dong Gun, Kim Ji Won, and Kim Ok Bin as well as writers Kim Young Hyun and Park Sang Yeon.
“Arthdal Chronicles” is Song Joong Ki’s first drama in three years since the major 2016 hit “Descendants of the Sun” (except for cameo appearances), as well as his first since he married co-star Song Hye Kyo in October 2017.
When asked at the press conference about what’s changed after they got married, Song Joong Ki replied, “There’s nothing big that’s changed.” However, he added, “I could possibly call it gaining tranquility of the mind. I think that’s something that’s changed. Other married people might feel the same way.”
Song Joong Ki also spoke about Song Hye Kyo’s reaction to his new drama. He said, “Song Hye Kyo is also a fan of the two writers and the director. This is my first drama in a long time, but she supported me by saying ‘Do well by focusing until the end’ and so it’s thanks to her that I was able to finish it well.”
“Arthdal Chronicles” premieres on June 1. Writers Kim Young Hyun and Park Sang Yeon have worked on popular historical dramas including “The Great Queen Seon Deok,” “Tree with Deep Roots,” and “Six Flying Dragons,” and director Kim Won Suk has helmed “Incomplete Life,” “Signal,” and “My Ahjussi.”
