Will Rocco Nacino be part of GMA-7's Descendants of the Sun remake?
Today, March 6, Rocco posted on Instagram a photo of him wearing a soldier uniform. The Kapuso actor was photographed at the facade of PNP SAF Camp Bagong Diwa in Taguig City.
His caption in the post only read: "Tagaligtas."
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.
In the Korean version, Seo Dae-young is portrayed by actor Jin Goo.
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.
It was in late 2017 when the Kapuso Network first announced that they are planning to do a remake of Descendants of the Sun.
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.
