As the remake was announced as one of the Network’s upcoming projects this 2019, the Aldub fans have been tweeting nonstop, requesting for their favorite celebrities to be the main stars.
A Netizen said that the loveteam can do it as Richards has experience when it comes to action scenes and Mendoza can also do the character of Dra. Kang.
Pwedeng-pwede talaga ang AlDub sa Descendants of the Sun. Magaling naman sa action si Alden at 'yung character ni Doc Kang eh kaya naman ni Maine.

But there are also some who were against the idea of the duo assuming the roles, saying that Dennis Trillo and Jennylyn Mercado are to be the leads instead.
No please it’s not for Maine or Alden on this role. I love Meng but Descendants of the Sun is more fitting for Jen n Gil ✌️ Opinion ko lang to ha bati Tayo 😂🎆
