With the ongoing tension between China and South Korea, Hallyu stars' promotions overseas have become a concern, including talk about top celebrities like Song Joong Ki. Rumors say that an $8 million Chinese drama offer for Song Joong Ki was recently canceled due to the situation surrounding THAAD (Terminal High Altitude Area Defense).
On August 4, a representative spoke on behalf of Song Joong Ki, explaining, "He did receive many offers for Chinese dramas and movies, but nothing was confirmed. Therefore, the word cancellation does not make sense in this situation."
Currently, many hope Song Joong Ki will not become a victim of THAAD.
