It’s a good chance for international fans to interact with Song Joong Ki!
Actor Song Joong Ki headed for China to hold a press conference, where he shared honest thoughts about the popularity of his drama Descendants of the Sun as well as revealed his future plans.

The actor also expresses a sincere love towards his idol, saying: “I’ve always loved Wong Kar-wai’s films, and I spoke to Song Hye-kyo about him. He has a unique style.”
Meanwhile, Song Joong Ki officially kicked off his Asia tour with the first fan meeting in Beijing on May 14. The heartthrob will continue touring across seven other cities in China and some neighboring countries, before wrapping up his tour on May 25.
