Dingdong Dantes wrote a touching message on the last taping day of the Descendants of The Sun Philippine remake.
In an Instagram post, Dantes, who played Captain Lucas Manalo a.k.a Big Boss, shared photos of the Alpha Team and of the cast’s script reading for its last taping.
Dantes captioned his post, “Script reading for Lucas and Maxene’s last scene with Direk Dominic Zapata. Today, we finished our taping for DotsPH, and we’re set to bring back fresh episodes soon.”
The 40-year-old actor also praised his leading lady in the series, Jennylyn Mercado, for her portrayal as Maxene Dela Cruz or “Beauty”.
“A snappy salute to @mercadojenny for such an excellent and effective performance! Maraming salamat. ‘Pass your papers’ na kami. @gmanetwork”
As he gave his farewell message for the show, Dantes shared a photo of his boots which he used while portraying the role of Capt. Lucas.
He said, “Been wearing these boots for almost a year now to give life to Capt. Lucas Manalo. Now, it is time to loosen these laces to make way for the next journey. Mission accomplished!”
The Descendants of the Sun remake is based on a 2016 hit Korean series of the same name.
It premiered on February 10, 2020, as part of GMA Network’s Telebabad line up.
The premiere of the series gained a lot of attention and it even claimed the top spot on Twitter and Google Trends. It also won big at the 15th Seoul International Drama Awards.
The production of the show was suspended for more than five months due to the spread of COVID-19 and the imposed community quarantine. It resumed its lock-in taping earlier this September.
