After the phenomenal success of Descendants of the Sun, actor Song Joong Ki has been somewhat off the radar in the small screens so I’m pretty sure fans are quite keen to know what project is next on the horizon for the actor. Last year, it was announced that Song Joong Ki will be headlining the new tvN drama Asadal Chronicles as his encore to Descendants.
Recently, the network released some new stills featuring scenes of the thirty three year old on horseback. The actor, who previously charmed the world as Captain Yoo Shi Jin with his boyish good looks and excellent acting, did a complete turnaround with his look this time for the new series. From the photos, a significantly bulked up Joongki is almost unrecognizable underneath a curly mop of brown hair, a complete departure from his usual fresh and youthful charm most fans know him for. Not to say that it’s a bad thing though as it’s a sure sign that the actor is completely committed to a realistic portrayal of his role as well as showing us viewers a different side of him.
Asadal Chronicles is a fantasy drama set during ancient times in the fictional land of Asadal, where clans and tribes outwit and outplay each other to gain control of the city. Aside from Hallyu star Song Joong Ki, the drama also features an incredible line up of actors such as veteran actor Jang Dong Gun and super cute actress Kim Ji Won from Fight My Way.
