This will only be a very short review. I just finished this K-drama and just wanted to write about it briefly.
I started this series about half a week ago and I have to say that I really like Descendants of the Sun. While it probably won’t make it into my top 3 K-dramas, it did pick me up quite well in some respects.
I think it’s no secret that I’m not a big fan of romances. Still, I watched Descendants of the Sun at my sister’s request and was quite pleasantly surprised. The K-drama does revolve around the love of the main characters, but this is not very extreme and it is still primarily about the soldier’s life of the protagonist.
There are many action and emotionally charged scenes, which I personally find very nice. And in fact, the romantic scenes were also quite well implemented, which made it not so cringe.
As for the soundtrack, I was particularly captivated by the song “Once Again”. So I listen to this song up and down since I heard it the first time.
(Here is the link to the song, if you want to listen to it).
If you are looking for a K-drama that you can watch in your free time, which doesn’t have such a deep story, but is still nice to watch and has some action, then I can only recommend Descendants of the Sun to you.
