Alden Richards reacts to “Descendants of the Sun” Pinoy adaptation with Maine Mendoza as lead star

  • Alden Richards shared that he would love to be a part of the upcoming Filipino adaptation of Descendants of the Sun.
  • He also shared updates about his love life and newest business venture.

At his thanksgiving party held on January 6, Alden Richards shared his plans for the year 2019.

He said that he would still be appearing in his regular shows like Eat Bulaga and Sunday Pinasaya. Then he will get to do a series of concerts in various countries before he starts a new show with the Kapuso network.

When asked about the title, he answered, “Nothing is definite po as of now.”

Fans of his loveteam with Maine Mendoza, AlDub, has been requesting for the tandem to star in the local remake of popular Korean drama Descendants of the Sun.

“I’d really love to do it as I know it’s a hit drama worldwide. I’d also love to work with Maine again. But hindi naman po kami ang magde-decide tungkol diyan kundi ang GMA management. So I hope sana nga, sa amin ni Maine nila ibigay ang project as I’d really love to do it.

“Actually, kahit magkaiba ang career paths namin ngayon ni Maine as we’re on our own, mas close kami ngayon as friends at mas open sa isa’t isa. We are growing individually, on our own. But we really appreciate the fans of our love team who continue to support us and root for us and request na magkasama kami uli sa isang teleserye or movie.”

He also addressed the rumors of him being in a secret relationship, which was said to be the reason why he’s in his “happiest” as of the moment.

“Not true. I’m at my happiest dahil sa dami ng blessings na dumarating sa akin. Actually, ang wish ko nga, sana matagpuan ko na ‘yung the one this 2019. But hindi ko naman hinahanap, basta kung darating siya, ’di okay.”

About his future business plans, his own fast food chain franchise in Biñan, Laguna is currently under construction.

“But sobrang saya ko kasi dati, kumakain lang kami ng family ko sa isang branch noon sa Sta. Rosa at ngayon, may sarili na akong franchise. Our plan is to open it on Easter Sunday.”

At the topic of future leading ladies, Richards answered that he would like to work with Heart Evangelista in the future.


“I find her a good actress and I’ve never worked with her before. I’d really like to experience working with her as my leading lady.”
