Actor Song Joong-ki, who still has a “boy-like” visual, is well-known for his “flower boy” image that makes people want to protect him when appearing in “A Werewolf Boy” and “Sungkyunkwan Scandal”.
Song Joong-ki then succeeded in transforming his image through the drama “Descendants of the Sun” by showing off his solid back muscles and solid muscular shoulders.
However, after “Descendants of the Sun” ended, Song Joong-ki appeared on a broadcast and sighed when he watched the scene in which his muscles are revealed while he is working out. Song Joong-ki said, “I worked out in vain. At the moment, my muscles have all gone”.
