‘Descendants of the Sun’ to be made into movie in China

July 5, 2016

BEIJING, July 5 (Yonhap) — South Korea’s sensationally popular TV series will be made into a movie in China, a report said Tuesday.

China’s newspaper Wuhan said Huace Film & TV, one of the country’s biggest film production companies, has already bought the rights to reproduce it into a film.

It also said Zhang Yibai will direct it and the lead roles for Yoo Si-jin and Kang Mo-yeon, played by Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo in the original series, haven’t been cast yet.

“We are under enormous pressure since the original drama hit it off by casting two very attractive stars,” Zhang was quoted as saying.

“We won’t rely on the reputation of the original drama but use it as a foundation to build a wholly new movie,” he said, stressing that “We’d like to make a better one.”

    Libraries are very helpful for students because they can get every kind of book from there. I have written many cool essay with the help of different books from library. Library blogs is a good attempt to share the books in the soft form.
