Ika nga ni DeeCenDee,
Nung hindi sa A-listers binigay ang Encantadia, ang daming nagreklamo kasi it’s a big project.
Ngayon namang sa A-listers binigay ang big project na DOTSPH, marami paring nagrereklamo.

Jennylyn Mercado, Rocco Nacino, Jasmine Curtis-Smith are actually fine choices for #DescendantsOfTheSun. Now if only GMA can wise up and change Dingdong or better yet, if he could back out himself, then a more suitable actor can be chosen for the role. #DOTSPH
