Song Joong Ki News: 'Descendants Of The Sun' Actor Moves Writers To Tears In Korean Producer Awards Speech

"Descendants of the Sun" actor Song Joong Ki recently moved the audience to tears with his touching speech at the 29th Korea Producers Awards. The actor won the much coveted Best Performer award from the prestigious award giving body.

According to a report from Soompi, CBS radio show writer Kim Mon Sook was also honored by the body for the writers' category. Overwhelmed, the writer said in her speech that everyday, she writes scripts that go nowhere, which touched a lot of members in the audience.

But the highlight of the event was when it came time for Song Joong Ki to receive his award for the acting category. The "Descendants of the Sun" actor took the time to address Kim Mon Sook's words and humbly came up with his own vow.

"I learned a lot from hearing the words of many veterans in their fields. I think it was a good thing to come tonight," he said.  "Kim Moon Sook said that she writes scripts that go nowhere. I will become an actor who can work to bring those precious scripts to life."

At that segment, Kim Moon Sook became teary eyed again and the audience applauded Song Joong Ki's humility and thoughtfulness. Another writer, Kim Eun Sook also praised the actor for considering the words of a writer whom he has not even worked with before.

After his successful drama "Descendants in the Sun", Song Joong Ki will star in the film  "Battleship Island," a historical film that tells the story of 400 Koreans who attempted to escape Hashima Island, a place where they are enslaved to work in mining, Kpopstarz reported.

Song Joong Ki will star opposite veteran actors like Hwang Jung Min and So Ji Sub and play the part of Park Moo Yeong, a soldier who will sneak into the island on a mission to save an important freedom fighter. The film is expected to premiere in China and Korea later in the year.  Meanwhile, reports also hint that "Descendants of the Sun Season 2" is already under way.
