The rom-com action Descendants Of The Sun is one of the most popular kdramas but has one would be left to check out the review as the audience has a  mixed reaction to it. It was a big hit when it premiered. It even was broadcast across Asia due to its huge popularity. In short, the drama follows the romantic tale between a special force officer and a surgeon. Kang Mo Yeon is a cardiothoracic surgeon working. She is an assertive woman who isn’t afraid of admitting her mistakes and believes that capability overrides the connections you have.

Meanwhile, Yoo Shi Jin is the captain of the Alpha Team and is always ready to help anybody in need and protect his country. And so, when the two opposites attract each other, the glow of romance sparks brighter!

The highlight of Descendants Of The Sun is when the special force officers and a team of surgeons overcome various obstacles during their stay at Urk! However, after their return, the plotline somehow seems a little dragging, creating tiny gaps here and there. However, Song Joong Ki, Song Hye Kyo, Jin Goo, and Kim Ji Woo try their best to fill the gaps. Besides the main couple, Kim Jin Won and Jin Goo did a great job as the second couple. Therefore, Descendants Of The Sun kdrama has positive and negative reviews!

Furthermore, the drawbacks of Descendants Of The Sun are a cliche story, predictable plot, repetitive arguments, and lax medical and military background checks. Nevertheless, if you are a romantic kdrama buff, Descendants Of The Sun should match your taste. It is full of sweet-teeth rotten romance, girls bonding, bromance, and an action pack. Besides, the cast of Descendants Of The Sun is another highlight. The main leads made the storyline more entertaining. Therefore, Descendants Of The Sun kdrama is worth at least one try if you are a hopeless romantic! If not, it’s not your cup of tea!

What Are Fans Reviews?

However, since the plotline somehow lost its charms, many found the series on a bearable level. After all, it is a mixture of action, military, medical, and rom-com.

Nevertheless, Descendants Of The Sun got pretty good reviews on the home ground as well as on the international level.
