Since Rocco was wearing a soldier uniform, some netizens were reminded about Rocco's soldier character, Otep, in the 2014 prime-time series, Hiram Na Alaala.

However, most of his followers were asking if he will play Sargeant Major Seo Dae-young, or the Diego character in the Philippine airing of Descendants of the Sun.

The soldier uniform could also mean that he might be immersing for the soldier role.

During the local airing of Descendants of the Sun in GMA-7 in 2016, Filipino fans noticed that Rocco and Jin Goo are look-alikes.

In fact, they were included in PEP.ph's (Philippine Entertainment Portal) list of Pinoy actors and their Korean lookalikes.

In PEP.ph's last conversation with GMA Senior Vice President for Entertainment, Lilybeth Rasonable, she said that the remake is still in its writing stage, and that they have yet to officially choose the cast members of Descendants of the Sun.
