The Korea Defense Daily conducted an online survey, from July 17 to August 20, among active military officers and soldiers, asking “Who would be best suited for the lead roles if a sequel to Descendants of the Sun were to be produced?”
1266 officers and soldiers participated in the survey, and Lee Seung Gi was their #1 pick for the lead actor with 245 votes.
The participants who chose Lee Seung Gi commented, “He seems to have done very well in military discipline as a Special Forces Man,” “Because he’s an actor who can express a soldier’s basic attitude and great discipline very well,” “As a fellow soldier, I’d like to see him entering his 2nd golden age after he’s discharged.”
Other actors: #2 PSJ 182 votes, #3 JCW 142 votes, #4 YSH 112 votes
Actresses: #1 HHJ 192 votes, #2 MCW 164 votes, #3 KJW 140 votes, #4 PBY 118 votes, #5 BSJ 91 votes
