If you haven't heard of Descendants of the Sun, the latest Korean drama to dominate Asian entertainment, you must be living under a very big rock.
Ever since the first biceps were flexed on the 16-episode romantic drama in February this year, female fans have been swooning over its hunky male lead Song Joong Ki. He's become so sought-after that his face has even made it to hell notes printed in China. For the male fans in it for the war action, it doesn't hurt that beautiful actress Song Hye Kyo of Full House fame plays the female lead.
Aside from the melodramatic story line that keeps viewers on the edge of their seats, the uniformed men in the show have also kept fans glued to the screen.
Not only do these actors flaunt their taut bodies on screen, they also display too-good-to-be-true characteristics. For example, Jasper Cho, who plays military doctor Daniel Spencer, can fix anything from humans to machines in the show. Captain Yoo, played by Song, also has a larger-than-life personality and is on a constant mission to protect and rescue the mild and meek.
With such shining personalities, we can't blame the hordes of fans for falling head over heels in love with the show (and the actors).
And don't worry, if a multi-talented doctor and a fearless military captain are not enough to sway you, here are the other actors in the show who have stolen the hearts of fans all over Asia.
