Fans are giving back the love of Song Joong Ki for them when they threatened to shut down stores dealing with Vivo cell phones. This was due to the company’s advertising strategy of putting the “Descendants of the Sun” actor’s posters on floors particular on trains.
The fans probably felt uncomfortable looking at their favorite actor’s face being trampled upon by passengers. Being on the floor, it will not be long and his face will be smeared or torn because of constant brushing with shoe soles.
According to AllKPop, the cell phone company issued an apology and hastily pulled-off the posters. They admitted that their ad was inappropriately placed on subway floors.
Descendants Of The Sun Fans Across The DMZ
Meanwhile, the “Penny Pinchers” actor was elated on the news that North Korean fans are risking their lives just to watch “Descendants of the Sun.” The North and South Korean conflict has been there for years and almost anything from the South is prohibited to enter into their territory. This includes movies on DVDs.
The North Korean younger generation found solace in watching South Korean actors. One show that they came to love was the military drama that stars Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo.
According to Asia Times, the avid fans were risking their lives just to watch the show. The other part of Korea had launched a ban on the distribution of DVDs and USBs containing South Korean films that were smuggled into the country. The penalty is very harsh – execution.
Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Ki Movie?

Will Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo make another show or movie that will equal or even surpass the military drama? Fans are hoping they will.
