5 memorable Song-Song scenes from ‘Descendants of the Sun’
We're here to remember their best on-screen moments with you


MANILA, Philippines – We know, we know – fans of the Song-Song couple still can’t believe that happened. After all, we rooted for Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo the moment we saw their characters bicker and eventually fall in love in Descendants of the Sun.

We feel you, and we’re here to remember this OTP’s (One True Pair) best moments with you.

Here are 5 iconic scenes from Descendants of the Sun, a drama about a soldier and a surgeon who fall in love while on the front lines of a fictional war-torn country.

1. Yoo Shi-jin and Kang Mo-yeon meet again in Uruk.

After their brief relationship in South Korea ended, Yoo Shi-jin (Song Joong-ki) and Kang Mo-yeon (Song Hye-kyo) meet again, this time in Uruk. Mo-yeon and her medical team arrive in the war-torn country and wait on the tarmac for their escort to arrive.

Enter Captain Shi-jin, leader of the Alpha Team, and some of his soldiers. Shi-jin ignores her at first but picks up her scarf later and hands it to her. They don’t say anything to each other, but the tension is palpable in this scene.

2. Wine kiss!

In this scene, Shi-jin and Mo-yeon are reminiscing about the time they briefly dated back in South Korea. Mo-yeon is drinking wine straight from the bottle, and teases Shi-jin since he’s not allowed to drink.

“It’s not like there is no other way,” says Shi-jin before he swoops in for a kiss.

3. Shi-jin saves Mo-yeon from a car accident.

While driving alone, Mo-yeon figures in an accident where her car almost falls off a cliff. Her phone accidentally calls Shi-jin, and she asks for help after he picks up. Shi-jin arrives just as the car was about to totally fall off the cliff.

“Trust me and hold my hand tightly. Just close your eyes for a moment. I will save you, I promise,” he tells Mo-yeon.

4. Shi-jin and Mo-yeon reunite at ground zero of an earthquake.

After another separation, Shi-jin and Mo-yeon meet again in Uruk as they both help in the aftermath of an earthquake. After Shi-jin ties Mo-yeon’s boot laces for her, he tells her he’s glad she’s not hurt and that he regrets not seeing her on the day he left Uruk.

5. Mo-yeon’s confession.

Mo-yeon lends her phone so that their camp in Uruk can listen to some music, but the next song that plays turns out to be a recording she made during her literal cliffhanger experience (see no. 3). The recording apparently includes a message for Shi-jin: “If I knew I would die like this, then I should have told you my true feelings. I got kissed by an amazing man.”

Shi-jin grins as he listens to the recording.
