Following the release of new still images from "Arthdal Chronicles" attention has been called to Song Joong-ki's new appearance. Formerly a nice guy with a pale complexion, Song Joong-ki is now tanned, muscular, yet still oddly youthful in his new role in "Arthdal Chronicles" which we know will involve a lot of horse riding.
"Arthdal Chronicles" is expected to take on a highly masculine tone. It takes place in the Korean protostate of Gojoseon, and what we've seen of the costuming indicates that this drama will be more about legend than well observed history.
"Arthdal Chronicles" is Song Joong-ki's big return to dramas following "Descendants of the Sun" in 2016. Song Joong-ki's wife, Song Hye-kyo, who he met via that drama, had her comeback earlier this year with "Encounter".
