A photo of Joong Ki in an army uniform and was waiting to receive his reserve forces training went viral overnight when a netizen uploaded it on October. The photo was captioned "Wow it's Yoo Si Jin. [I'm] a reservist with Song Joong Ki hyung, sorry for taking the photo without permission." And while the netizen was sorry about taking the photo without Joong Ki's knowledge, his fans were ecstatic about the photo since it reminded them so much of his army captain character in the immensely popular show.

The Descendants of the Sun tells the love story of Capt. Yoo Si Jin and Dr. Kang Mo Yeon (portrayed by Song Hye Kyo) in a worn-torn Korean. The series was a big hit not only in Korea but also became a phenomenon all over Asia. Rumors are circulating that a season 2 is already being planned. However, nothing has been confirmed as of late and people can only hope to see their favorite army captain on their television screens once again.

Meanwhile, rumors regarding Joong Ki dating his The Descendants of Sun co-star Song Hye Kyo won't seem to die down. Now only adding fuel to the fire, Joong Ki was spotted on a holiday trip with Hye Kyo, who visited the actor on the set of his upcoming film 'Battleship Island'. There are also news of the two planning to have a baby while their representatives denied all the rumors surrounding the two actors.
