Song Hye-kyo surprises Song Joong-ki, rest of ‘Battleship Island’ crew
Actress Song Hye-kyo sent a mini mobile coffee truck to actor Song Joong-ki and the rest of the crew on “Battleship Island”, an upcoming historical film in which Song plays the main character. The actress sent the snacks and coffee to show her support for Song Joong-ki as he takes on the lead role in “Battleship Island.” The stars have been friends since they featured in “Descendants of the Sun,” which aired from February to April on KBS.
A crew member of “Battleship Island” told local media outlets on Sunday that actress Song sent a truck carrying snacks and drinks for the movie crew, who were filming in scorching heat in Gangwon Province. The truck was decked out with a banner that said “Cheers to Song Joong-ki and the rest of the ‘Battleship Island’ crew.” The actress has shown a strong camaraderie with the “Descendants of the Sun” crew even after the drama ended. For instance, she flew all the way to Chengdu, China, in June to appear as a guest at Song Joong-ki‘s fan meeting.
She also sent a mini mobile coffee truck to Yoo Jong-seon, who was one of the producers for “Descendants of the Sun,” and Yoo’s crew who were producing a one-act play called “Red Teacher.”
“Battleship Island” is slated for release in 2017.
The historical movie is set in the early 1900s, when Korea was deprived of its national sovereignty by Japan. Song plays the role of Park Moo-young, an independence activist who infiltrates his way into Hashima, a Japanese island, to save Koreans who are enslaved there.
The film reflects the harsh lives of Korean conscripted civilians on the island who were forced to work under brutal treatment and conditions. Song had surprised his fans by saying in an interview with local media outlets that he will lose weight and shave his head for his role in the movie.
