Hi Syncfusion support,

Thanks for the help, currently i'm using the alternative by pass the value through the model as below and can be used for now

<ej-drop-down-list id="GenderList" datasource="ViewBag.datasourceGender" value= "@Model.GenderId">

                                    <e-drop-down-list-fields text="GenderName" value="GenderId" />

Hi Haryzad, 
Thank you for contacting  Syncfusion support. 
Yes, you can set the selected value through model by using Value property as mentioned in your update. You can also pass it through ViewBag using value property as shown in the below code 
<ej-drop-down-list  id="GenderList" datasource="(IEnumerable<WebApplication1.Controllers.SelectListItem>)ViewBag.dataSourceGender" value=@ViewBag.Value> 
        <e-drop-down-list-fields text="GenderName" value="GenderId" /> 
public IActionResult Index() 
            GenderList.Add(new SelectListItem { GenderId = 0 , GenderName ="Male"}); 
            GenderList.Add(new SelectListItem { GenderId = 1, GenderName = "Female" }); 
            ViewBag.dataSourceGender = GenderList; 
            ViewBag.Value = 1; 
            return View();
