TV Review: Descendants of the Sun

                                               Descendants of the Sun Review
Descendants of the Sun is a military and medical drama about how while on leave Yoo Si-jin a solider ends up encountering doctor named Kang Mo-yeon and he falls for her right away and the two soon began to date but have trouble getting through their dates since he gets called out of the country to go on a mission. After Si-jin returns from a mission Mo-yeon decides that she doesn't want to date a solider because of the kind of things that his job requires him to do. Mo-yeon and Si-jin spend quite sometime apart until they are brought back together when Si-jin is working a peace keeping mission in a middle eastern country called Urk and Mo-yeon ends working as volunteer doctor there as well and the two end up spending a lot of time together and Si-jin ends up saving Mo-yeon quite a few times and she starts to give into her feelings for him after awhile.

One of the subplots in this drama revolves around the relationship between Seo Dae-young and Yoon Myung-ju who both work in the military and while they are in love with each other they are unable to be with each others since Myung-ju's father who is an army commander doesn't approve of their relationship uses his position to keep the two of them apart. The relationship between Dae-young and Myung-ju is one that I think worked better than the main couple and I think that their storyline was better place and I feel like these two had a more understandable reason as to why they weren't together at the moment and since they were kept apart more often then not every moment they were together was made even sweeter.

Overall I thought this drama was better okay, I thought the characters were good overall and I thought that the relationships between the characters were quite fun.  I felt like the series didn't have a real over arching plot so it often times felt like things just kind of happened and then were resolved and then there was some filler and then something else that was only important for a couple minutes happened before repeating this pattern again which made it a bit hard to get invested in much of anything since I wasn't given enough time to actually worry about what would happen next. I also thought that this drama looked really nice as well when it came to it's directions and setting. Please tell me your thoughts on this drama in the comment section below.
