He won the highest award at the KBS Drama Awards for this work. He also said that for the movie "A Werewolf Boy", he had to act as a wolf without dialogue, so he studied the actual movement of the wolf and made a lot of preparations. His delicately prepared film surpassed 7 million spectators. It was very popular.
It made 2012 the 'Song JoongKi's year' because both the drama and the movie he appeared in were popular.
Since then, Song JoongKi has served his mandatory military service from 2013 to 2015.
His return work was "Descendants of the Sun" (2016). Song JoongKi was very well received. The public named the "Song JoongKi genre" after "Descendants of the Sun" because he showed his excellent acting ability regardless of the genre, such as melody, romantic comedy, and action. The actor was evaluated as having grown up in his acting ability. After his military discharge, he succeeded in showing a manly image different from the existing soft and mellow image.
In July 2017, he reported on his marriage to actress Song HyeKyo, with who he acted in the drama "Descendants of the Sun," and in October of the same year, they held the ceremony.
However, two years later, in 2019, he reported the news of divorce and ended his marriage in less than two years.
At the time of marriage, the couple gathered a massive topic with their "wedding of the century," so when they divorced in less than two years, they surprised many people.
Especially in the drama "Vincenzo", he acted as a cold-blooded criminal who has a romantic and beautiful angelic face. Part of the mafia, he commits all kinds of crimes but worked to suppress the bad people.
He received a lot of love for this character, and the public said that Vincenzo was one of the best characters of Song Joong Ki.
