SEOUL, April 5 (Yonhap) -- Actor Song Joong-ki and actress Song Hye-kyo, who are playing lead roles in the South Korean TV drama series "Descendants of the Sun," attended a press conference Tuesday in Hong Kong as part of the drama's promotional events.

The mega-hit KBS 2TV drama is set to be aired on "Viu TV" on Wednesday when the station starts to broadcast, according to a local news media.

The so-called "Song-Song couple" arrived in Hong Kong on Monday amid enthusiastic applause from crowds of fans for their first overseas TV series press event.

The romantic drama revolves around the love story between an army captain, Yoo Si-jin, who serves in the U.N. peacekeeping forces, and a female doctor named Kang Mo-yeon.

Data by Nielsen Korea said recently the Wednesday-Thursday night show was watched by 32.4 percent of viewers in South Korea, maintaining a viewership above 30 percent for the second straight week.

In China, the 16-episode drama has been broadcast through video-streaming website iQiyi, and surpassed 100 million views on average for each episode that has aired.

The 16-episode show will end on April 14.

Meanwhile, actor Song will go on Asian fan meeting tours, starting one such meeting on April 17 with domestic fans at Kyung Hee University in Seoul, his agency said Tuesday.

According to Blossom Entertainment, Song will fly to Thailand for a fan meeting on May 7 to be held at the Thunder Dome in Bangkok.

An official of the entertainment agency said, however, that the itinerary for any other such meetings have yet to be decided.
