Popular South Korean drama ‘Descendants of the Sun’ will be given a remake in Pakistan. And don’t worry, the lead male actor is just as hunky as Song Joong-ki in the original series.

Pakistani actor and former model Imran Abbas, 34, will be playing the role based off Song’s “Big Boss” Captain Yoo Shi-jin.

According to media reports, while many Pakistanis are excited over the remake, some Koreans are also anticipating what the remake will be like.

Song was recently in Singapore for a meet-and-greet session as part of promotions for his movie “The Battleship Island”.
