GMA Readies Adaptation of Descendants of the Sun


GMA Network’s adaptation of the drama series Descendants of the Sun is slated to make its highly anticipated debut in Philippine prime time next week.

Headlined by Dingdong Dantes (Bow of Justice, The Other Mrs. Real) and Jennylyn Mercado (My Love From the Star, My Faithful Husband), the drama will bow on February 10. It is adapted from the hit series from South Korea and tells the story of Lucas, a professional soldier and captain of the special forces of the Philippine military, and Maxine, a talented and dedicated surgeon—two people brought together by destiny.

Dantes said: “Viewers have been waiting for our adaptation of this drama. Story-wise, we did some tweaking to make it suitable for the Philippine setting, while keeping the important elements that endeared the series to the viewers. We’re very excited about this series and we’re very proud of it.”

Mercado added, “We worked hard in this series, but it was all worth it because everyone in the team put their hearts into the project—from the director to the cast, to the entire production team. We all worked together to make the show truly outstanding.”
