Hong Kong has been very, very generous not just to fans of Descendants of the Sun, but to Song-Song/Kikyo shippers and the lead stars’ individual fanbase as well! 🙂 There’s been so much onslaught of DOTS/Kikyo goodies from Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo‘s Hong Kong trip.
Aside from their press conference and media promo shots for the show, both Songs also sat down for an interview with ViuTV.
There are no complete translations of this interview, but kind Soompi-er hclover96 transcribed a small portion of their responses. 😉 Check them out below the video! And thanks again to hclover96 for the translation and to denira2104 for finding the video!

As this is the first time they’ve worked together, the interviewer asked about their first impressions of one another. Song Joong Ki replied:
To be able to film together with Korea’s most beautiful actress, I felt really happy. Everyone thinks it’s because of her outer appearance that she became famous, but after working together, I realized her inner heart and personality are really good also.
Joong Ki added:
She also has lots of acting experience. During our first time meeting I thought I can learn a lot from her. I actually did have a really good experience.
Song Hye Kyo’s thoughts:
It’s not because he complimented me that I’m saying this (you can see SJK mumbling something and smiling when she said that). To be honest, before filming this drama, we have met a few times. At that time my impression of him was really good as it is now. Actually, the filming for this drama is much longer compared to others. From the beginning to the end, it’s all very good. Filming for this drama is hard work, but he often takes care of other staff members. Felt he is even more handsome, so left a really good memory.
