Is Song Joong Ki The Next Gong Yoo After Receiving A Role In A Netflix Zombie Thriller?

Song Joong Ki has been the desire of any and every broadcasting station ever since his extreme rise in fame from his role in 'Descendants of The Sun.' Song Joong Ki had become so popular that even Netflix had contacted him in regards to making a project together.

Netflix is known for creating its own amusing original series, and it was recently announced that the popular streaming company was dabbling in the process of creating their very own Korean dramas and variety programs. The show is titled 'Kingdom' and is about a prince protecting his kingdom and world from a horde of zombies - 'Train To Busan' much?

However, it was revealed by Song Joong Ki's agency that he turned down the role and for one reason - he wanted to keep his schedule clear for Song Hye Kyo and their upcoming wedding set for October 31st of this year. Blossom Entertainment stated, "Song Joong Ki has turned down his role in 'Kingdom'. There's currently nothing confirmed for his next project."

A representative from Netflix also made a statement about the role rejection saying, "We discussed Song Joong Ki's appearance, but they fell through. Although the casting process is going by quickly, so we'll start filming soon. We were initially planning on filming from September, but we wanted the final product to be better, so the process got delayed and filming will start in October."

It seems Song Joong Ki will be too busy continuing to win over Song Hye Kyo's heart instead of saving a Kingdom this year!
