“Descendants of the Sun” Already Breaks Even Despite Astronomical Production Cost
Despite the astronomical sum that went into producing KBS’s smash-hit “Descendants of the Sun,” it’s been revealed that the drama has already broken even!
The production company NEW reported on March 21 that, “Thanks to the incredibly popularity the drama has seen from being simultaneously broadcast in Korea and China, ‘Descendants of the Sun’ has already passed the break-even point from the sales and advertising revenue.”
The producers invested 13 billion won (a staggering $10 million, approximately) into the show’s development, a large portion of which went towards the month of filming in Greece. “Descendants of the Sun” is NEW’s first drama, having started off as a film production company.
“Descendants of the Sun” airs every Wednesday and Thursday on KBS2. Catch the latest episode on Viki!
