If you’re a K-drama fan, then you’ve probably watched Descendants of the Sun—and fallen in love with the lead character, Big Boss.
Originally played by Korean actor Song Joong-ki, GMA News revealed none other than Dingdong Dantes will assume that role in the local adaptation
At a press conference following his contract renewal, Dingdong said the birth of his second child, Ziggy, inspires him to do his best for this role. “More than very physically prepared, I’m emotionally, spiritually prepared, lalo na napaka espesyal nito,” He says. “Iba yung inspirasyon ko ngayon at hugot ngayong chapter nitong buhay ko.” (My inspiration and motivation for this chapter in my life is at a different level) Aww!
Sadly, details about the project are still scarce. “Preparations, wala pa talaga masyado. Binubuo pa talaga yung buong show.” Looks like we’ll have to wait a bit more on who will play Dr. Kang Mo-yeon and the rest of the characters.
In the meantime, fans took to social media to express their thoughts about Dingdong’s casting… and it’s a mixed reaction.
Dingdong Dantes as big boss? OMG Yes deserve na deserve
okay, they gave descendants of the sun to dingdong dantes. not that I don't like dingdong, ano lang, the franchise is already big. hindi na kailangan ng big actors, just good ones. sayang, nagamit sana ng GMA to catapult their mid-tier talents…
