Last Monday, South Korean actor Song Joong-ki turned 31. However, while the whole of actor’s fandom was celebrating his birthday by cutting cakes and lighting candles, Song Joong-ki did a vanishing act.
Up until now, the actor has been missing in action. Neither he nor his agency Blossom Entertainment made an official statement on Song Joong-ki’s birthday.
Oddly enough, his Descendants of the Sun co-star Song Hye-kyo, who is quite active on Instagram, did not wish the actor on the social media site on his birthday. Most probably, she would have called him on the phone to convey her best wishes or met him in person to celebrate his big day. However, fans on social media sites like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are speculating that Song Joong-ki has taken off with Song Hye-kyo to an exotic destination.
Coincidentally, Song Hye-kyo posted a few photographs of a spectacular locale on her Instagram account. The images, however, did not have captions. From the looks of it, they appear to have been clicked in the mountains of Norway. The beautiful scenery showed what appeared to be a log cabin on a mountain top.
Our guess is that the duo could be holidaying in one of these spots.
In fact, during the recent Prada store opening, Song Hye-kyo did say that she loves to travel when she is not working.
“I love to travel so I visit a lot of places. I recently went to Jeju-do, a beautiful Korean island, with some of the staff members. I also love New York, Paris and Italy, so I tend to travel to a lot of places with friends when I’m not working,” she told SCMP.
Considering she and Song Joong-ki are “just friends,” they might be traveling together even if they have no romantic inclination towards each other.
Another post that caught the fan’s attention was the picture of a ship mast that Song Hye-kyo posted a couple of days ago. Oddly, while the fans managed to save the screenshot of what she posted, a few minutes later, they found that Song Hye-kyo had deleted that post. Fans speculated that she deleted the post because she later figured out that if people put two and two together, they might conclude that she is hanging out in the sets of Battleship Island, which Song Joong-ki is currently filming.
Below is the Instagram post which Song Hye-kyo allegedly deleted almost immediately.
Although these are mere speculations, Song Hye-kyo’s cryptic Instagram posts does raise a few questions about her relationship with her Descendants of the Sun co-star Song Joong-ki.
Another reason why Song Hye-kyo could be holidaying in the West is probably to network with European and Hollywood filmmakers.
After her role as doctor Kang Mo-yeon in the Descendants of the Sun K-drama, which concluded in April, Song Hye-kyo has been taking a break and doing some brand promotions for Prada Stores and lipstick brand Laneige. As far as Descendants of the Sun Season 2 is concerned, fans stand divided on the actress reprising the role. Some news agencies claim that Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo might play parents in the second season. However, this has not been confirmed by either Song Joong-ki’s agency or Song Hye-kyo’s.
Meanwhile, the good news is that actress Song Hye-kyo is currently enjoying the status of “Goddess of Asia,” which is a feather in the cap to her already impressive profile.
While rumor has it that Song Hye-kyo could be heading to Hollywood next, there have been no confirmed reports of the actress’ next move.
