DINGDONG Dantes will star in GMA-7’s adaptation of the hit Korean drama, “Descendants of the Sun.”
This was announced Tuesday during a press conference, with the actor renewing his contract with the Kapuso network.
Dantes is “proud” and “honored” to have been picked for the project.
He promised to give his all to the series maintaining “sa ganitong paraan ko maibabalik ang tiwala at pagmamahal na ibinigay sa akin ng GMA.”
Production is yet to announce other cast members of the show.
The airing date was not mentioned as well.
The original incarnation of the Korean drama first aired in GMA-7 in 2016.
Months after its run, the network announced it has secured the rights to create an adaptation of the drama.
Earlier reports named Alden Richards along with Maine Mendoza as possible lead stars.
Almost two years after the announcement, GMA-7 included the “Descendants of the Sun” remake in its roster of TV programs for 2019. (NEIL RAMOS)
