Song Joong Ki has become one of the most popular actors in all of Asia due to his role in Descendants of the Sun. 

And while the character Yoo Shi Jin has become one of the most legendary drama roles of the decade, netizens were surprised to discover that many other actors had actually turned down the role before it was offered to Song Joong Ki, said Koreaboo.

According to a producer of the drama, several top celebrities had turned down the role because they were skeptical about participating in a drama that would be filmed completely before airing, leaving no room for editing based on the reactions of viewers.
