Another Korean drama that will be pre-produced just like Descendants of the Sun is due to be aired later this year. Reports confirmed that the historical drama starring a host of mega stars was sold to China for a price that’s more than what Descendants of the Sun fetched, and as a result is expected to beat DOTS in popularity and gain. It is said the drama will be aired in Korea and China simultaneously.
‘Hwarang: The Beginning’ will feature Park Seo-joon, Go Ara, Park Hyung-sik and Choi Minho. As per the latest news leaks, the drama will air in September 2016 on KBS2.
