Warning. If you haven’t seen DOTS yet, spoilers ahead.
Descendants of the Sun is a story about a captain of the Special Forces, Shi-Jin (Song Joong Ki) falling in love with Dr. Mo-Yoen (Song Hye Kyo) for the first time when he set his eyes on her.
In the beginning of the show, Shi-Jin together with Sergeant Major Dae-Young (Jin Goo) captures a young motorcycle thief Kim Ki-Bum (Kim Min Seok). During the chase, the thief got injured and was sent to the hospital. Dae-Young realizes his cellphone was also stolen by the thief so they went to the hospital to get his cellphone.
In the Emergency Room, it was the first time Shi-Jin meets Dr. Mo-Yeon and immediately fell in love. But Mo-Yeon thought Shi-Jin was with the thief and was part of the criminal gang because he was called the “Big Boss” which was actually his call sign. With the help of an army doctor Myeong-Joo (Kim Ji Won), he proves to Mo-Yeon he’s really a soldier.
They start to date but because of their work, it didn’t go smoothly as expected. Shi-Jin receives an order to be deployed in a peacekeeping mission in a fictional country of Uruk. While he’s away, Mo-Yeon experienced some problem of her own like failing to become a professor over a colleague who connections in the hospital management. When the met again, they realized how different they really are and how opposing their views in life are.
Eight months later, Mo-Yeon was assigned to Uruk as a result of the retribution of the hospital chairman, Suk-Won (Tae In Ho) because she dismissed his sexual advances. Fatefully, the two estranged lovers met again. There, they reunite and continued their relationship back in Korea.
Shi-Jin was eventually sent to a classified mission where he disappeared and was assumed to be dead. He was actually saved from captivity by a friend. Months passed and still no sign of Shi-Jin, Mo-Yeon decided to commemorate his death with a volunteer trip in Albania. There, they met again and got their happy ending.
We are not sure yet if the stars and their agents will share any wedding details as they have confirmed that wedding is a private and intimate matter for them. For now, let all the KDrama fans delight and rejoice with the news.
