"Descendants of the Sun" has been one of most successful Korean dramas to come out of 2016, so much so in fact that the series might spawn a sequel due to high market demand. Fans just can't get enough of the romantic pairing of Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo, also known as the Song Song couple that they are waiting with bated breath for the possibility of a reunion.

Here's everything we know about "Descendants of the Sun 2" from the rumors, to the plot to the cast. However, very few information has been confirmed by KBS and must be taken with a grain of salt.

KBS is planning Descendants of the Sun 2. The hit Korean drama ended last April but fans immediately asked for a sequel, a ripple that grew as more countries bought rights to air the drama in their own countries. KBS Drama Department Head Jung Sung Ho confirmed that they are planning to release a sequel to thank local and overseas viewers for their support. He also credited the drama for starting a third wave of Hallyu around the world, Soompi reported.

The Thai PM is a fan of the show. In a Korea Times interview with Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-Cha, he admitted to being a fan of "Descendants of the Sun," not only because it tells a love story but because it also incorporates into the series the values of patriotism, self sacrifice and citizenship rights. He credited Korean dramas for bringing countries closer to each other because through research, it is able to establish common cultures that relate to different countries.

The Song Song couple may not return for the sequel. Sad news for shippers of Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo as the two actors may be too busy to work on "Descendants of the Sun 2." Song Joong Ki has been cast as the lead of "Battleship Island" while Song Hye Kyo is reportedly swamped with commitments and endorsement deals. Song Joong Ki raised fans' hope late last year when he made a surprise visit to Song Hye Kyo's 20th year anniversary event but so far, no confirmation has been made about the pair working on the sequel. There are rumors though, that they will reunite for the anniversary of "Descendants of the Sun" this year.

The sequel could revolve around Jin Goo and Kim Ji Won. The Song Song couple was the main draw of "Descendants of the Sun" but fans also really liked the chemistry between secondary couple Jin Goo and Ji Won. If the schedules don't pan out for the leading cast members, KBS is rumored to be considering a story centered on Dae Young and Meong Joo.
