The first episode has been out for about 24 hours and the second episode has aired. The first episode plays on some much needed action in dramas and comedy as well. The episode starts out with a group of Korean soldiers outside the DMZ. Two soldiers walk into the DMZ without any armor or guns, just knives. A fight breaks out within and it seems to be revealed that one of the men in the DMZ is the brother of one soldier that walks in.
Again, the scene cuts to the two men sitting at a table. One man, Yoo Shi Jin, receives a call and the other man tells him to refuse it. His offer for him to refuse the call is to give Yoo Shi Jin the number of his cousin, upon which he realizes the kid stole his phone.
Back in the hospital, the two men bring the kid back in, beaten near to death. He is treated and Shi Jin falls in love with Mo Yeon. Their identity is confirmed by Yoon Myung Ju, a fellow classmate of Mo Yeon in school and the two men in their academy. Yoo Shi Jin asks the nurse to treat him for his gunshot wound that opened up during the fight with the gang. She stitches him up.
Just before they are to meet up, there is a report on the news about two UN workers being abducted. Shi Jin receives a call and gives his location. He leaves for the roof and Mo Yeon calls him and meets him on the roof. He explains that he has to leave for a mission. Mo Yeon promises to go with him to a movie the next weekend.
The scene then cuts to inside the helicopter. The men, all in their uniforms, tear their dog tags off and question why they are doing that. It is mentioned that when they die, their bodies need to remain unidentified.
That's the end of the episode. I won't do this for every episode, but this seemed to be a very historical moment for k-dramas. What did you think of the pilot episode of Descendants of the Sun? Did you enjoy it or did you think it was cliché? Let me know in the comments section below.
