(From Yibada)

‘Descendants of the Sun’ made Song Joong-ki the most popular actor in China and South Korea that he is not only seen on TV but also on fashion magazine, and print and TV ads. The 30-year-old actor is also returning to the silver screen via the movie “Battleship Island.”

 Yonhap News reported that producers of ‘Battleship Island’ picked Nami Island in Chuncheon, Gangwon Province, as the location site of the movie because of Song Joong-ki.
They have seen the impact of the actor on viewers that long after he had finished a movie or TV drama, the places where he shot the scenes became tourist spots.
 The movie, one of the most anticipated in 2017 because of the lead actor, will have a set built in Camp Page, a former U.S. air based shuttered in 2005. The municipal government supported the construction of the set, hoping that it would become a tourist magnet similar to other Korean Haley’s. Read more
