KBS Tired Of Delays In 'Descendants Of The Sun 2'; Shifts Focus To 'Moonlight Drawn By Clouds 2'

Is KBS going to shift its attention to developing “Moonlight Drawn By Clouds” Season 2? Pending delays in the production of its planned second season to its megahit drama “Descendants of the Sun”, there is a huge clamor online for a sequel to the Park Bo Gum and Kim You Jung starrer given the strong chemistry of the two lead stars in the historical romance drama.

It can be recalled that KBS immediately considered thedevelopment of “Descendants of the Sun” Season 2 after the huge success of the drama not only in Korea but in other countries that have syndicated the drama. At one point, it was even reported that Thailand’s Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha was also a fan of the series, Kpopstarz reported. However, delays caused by different factors may compel KBS’ focus on potential hit sequels like “Moonlight Drawn By Clouds” 2.

Like Descendants of the Sun, “Moonlight Drawn By Clouds” consistently topped ratings in its timeslot for its 18 episode run. Lead stars Park Bo Gum and Kim You Jung who played Crown Prince Lee Young and eunuch-in-disguise Hong Raon also rose to superstardom after the drama and are now being groomed to be next Song Song couple Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo.

“Descendants of the Sun” Season 2 reportedly hit some snags when the schedule of lead stars Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo became too busy to accommodate the required time needed to film a sequel. This would not be a problem if KBS pushes through with “Moonlight Drawn By Clouds” 2 since Park Bo Gum and Kim You Jung have not yet signed on for their next drama projects just yet, Korea Portal reported.

After Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, Park Bo Gum has appeared in variety shows like Running Man and Infinite Challenge and locked several major endorsement deals for Coca Cola and Domino’s Pizza. Kim You Jung, for her part, is busy preparing for her first fan meeting outside of Korea when she ineracts with fans in Singapore this May.
