The popularity of the drama 'Descendants of the Sun' is so outrageous in China that a public advisory has been made to warn viewers of actor Song Joong Ki.
On March 12, China's public safety Weibo page posted, "Korean drama fans beware! Alert of hidden harm in 'Descendants of the Sun'. Females in Korea and China are love sick from Song Joong Ki. It is leading to a great amount of complaints by males." The post continued, "Watching Korean dramas is more 'dangerous' than you think. You can end up facing lawsuits."
This public advisory might seem exaggerated, but there actually has been serious marriage conflicts and even divorce in China due to jealousy on the husband's part due to their wives' love of Song Joong Ki. Some people have even undergone plastic surgery to look more like the actor.
The continuous rise in popularity of the drama 'Descendants of the Sun' turns Song Joong Ki into a 'dangerous' figure. He even made #1 on China's 'Most Popular Celebrity'.
Song Joong Ki syndrome is spreading fast and wide not only in China, but all over the world. All viewers better watch out and 'Beware of Song Joong Ki'!
