Descendents of the sun

GMA Network proudly brings top-rating Korean drama of 2016 “Descendants of the Sun” (DOTS) beginning July 25.

“Descendants of the Sun” was a major hit in Korea and became immensely popular worldwide. It has been sold to more than 27 countries including the UK, and translated into 32 languages. It also surpassed “My Love from the Star” posting an average rating of 30.09 percent making DOTS Korea’s Number One drama.

The romantic drama series tells the story of a handsome, young captain of South Korean Special Forces Unit named Lucas Yoo (played by Song Joong-ki) and a beautiful doctor Maxine Kang (played by Song Hye-kyo) who try to cope with the pressure of their missions but still manage to find love. With different priorities, will true love be enough to stand the test of fate?

“Descendants of the Sun” marks the return of A-list South Korean superstars Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo to GMA.

Joong-Ki’s previous drama “Innocent Man” where he played Maru, and Hye-Kyo’s series “Full House” where she is known as Jessie, were both aired in the Kapuso Network.

Their compelling love story airs on GMA Telebabad from Monday to Friday after “Encantadia.”
