Song Joong Ki Says ′Martial Arts′ Role is Not Confirmed

Song Joong Ki′s reps have released a statement regarding reports of the actor′s appearance in the movie Martial Arts (Translated). On January 30, Song Joong Ki′s agency, Blossom Entertainment, told Newsen, "We have received an offer to appear in the film Martial Arts, but it′s just one of the many projects that were offered to us." The agency added, "We haven′t decided on anything."

"He will be getting discharged in May. There′s still a few more months left of his military life. We′ll decide on a follow-up project once he gets discharged," continued the rep. "As of now, it′s not time to be deciding on projects. Getting discharged is first."
Taking place in the future where energy is being depleted, Martial Arts is a sci-fi fantasy action movie about a high school teenager who ends up living in a town full of criminals and protecting the secret to infinite energy. Korea′s CJ E&M and China′s CFG, China Film Group will be producing the 20,000,000 dollar movie, and it will be distributed by Pegasus & Taihe Entertainment.
Martial Arts was initially supposed to be Zo In Sung′s comeback project after he was discharged from the army, but as production became delayed, Zo In Sung left the project. In April of 2014, there was news that Yeo Jin Goo was confirmed to take the role, but the Chinese investment company wanted Kim Soo Hyun, who was rising in popularity due to You Who Came From the Stars. Yeo Jin Goo was suddenly cut from the project, causing much controversy.
When Kim Soo Hyun′s appearance also did not pull through, Martial Arts was put on hold for several months. With Martial Arts offering the role to Song Joong Ki, the public is looking to see what will happen.

Song Joong Ki Receives Drama Love Call from the Writer of ′The Heirs′

With Song Joong Ki getting discharged from the army in May, it′s been revealed that he received a lovecall from romantic comedy factory, writer Kim Eun Sook, gaining much attention for what he′ll do after he′s out.
According to broadcast affiliates on February 4, Song Joong Ki recently received an offer to appear as the male lead in Kim Eun Sook′s newest drama, Descendants of the Sun (tentative). As he′s still in the army, a confirmation cannot be made, but it′s said that Song Joong Ki′s agency and the drama production company have already begun sincere discussions.
Descendants of the Sun is a project that will require many overseas shoots as well as a large amount of production fee and time. With Kim Eun Sook known for her hit dramas, such as Secret Garden, The Heirs, On Air, Lovers in Paris and more, the pre-production of this drama is already gathering attention on and off the screen. It′s said that KBS is planning on broadcasting this drama in the second half of 2015, although the details are still being discussed.
Anticipation is high as to whether Song Joong Ki does join Kim Eun Sook in this project. Kim Eun Sook is known for her ′win-win′ history of working with top stars, like Hyun Bin in Secret Garden and Lee Min Ho and Kim Woo Bin in The Heirs.
As Song Joong Ki has been noticed for his eye-catching looks and acting ahead of his military enlistment, people are predicting that if both sides come to a final agreement, the public response will be explosive. Regarding this, Song Joong Ki′s agency, Blossom Entertainment told Newsen, "As his army discharge approaches closer, we′ve been getting flooded with many offers."
The rep continued, "Just as we′ve said with the previous movie offer, we′re leaving the offers for Descendants of the Sun and many others open and discussing them." Song Joong Ki was previously offered a role in the Korea-China produced movie, Martial Arts. The agency stated then, "We have received an offer to appear in the film Martial Arts, but it′s just one of the many projects that were offered to us. We haven′t decided on anything." Song Joong Ki enlisted in the army in August 2013 and will be discharged in May.

Song Joong Ki fans who have been missing the actor since he entered the military are in luck because the water purifier brand Ruhens released a new CF featuring the actor.

The CF shows the good-looking Song Joong Ki living an active lifestyle–biking, driving, walking, and concentrating on his work–with a tumbler of purified water on his hand to keep him hydrated throughout his busy day.

In the CF, Song Joong Ki talks about his personal story on how his health has gotten better through his habit of drinking water often.

Through Song Joong Ki, the brand Ruhens wanted to spread the message of drinking water for good health.

And this goal is not hard to reach for the brand because it has confidence in their brand ambassador. According to a representative from Ruhens , “Contrary to his youthful good looks, we were able to show Song Joong Ki in usual activities like driving. He acted so naturally and the female staff in the shoot naturally couldn’t contain their excitement.”

With the slogan, ‘Whenever, wherever, good water!’ the brand wants to send a message that there should be no division on the time and place where one should drink water for good health.
