Following the announcement, a netizen mentioned Winwyn in a tweet saying that she could play the role of Moira (Yoon Myeong-Joo in the Korean version), a military doctor who is a close friend of the lead characters and was originally played by Kim Ji Won.
The netizen also mentioned Rocco Nacino and Derek Ramsay in the tweet saying, "Now all we need is @nacinorocco's confirmation as Diego and @wynmarquez as Moira. Derek Ramsay can play as Argus. @gmanetwork @OfficialGMAHOA"
Winwyn quoted the tweet and expressed her wish to play one of the characters in Descendants of the Sun.
However, the beauty queen-actress said that she cannot be part of the remake because she is doing the upcoming afternoon drama series, Dahil sa Pag-ibig.
Winwyn wrote in her reply, "I would love to play the role of Yoon Myeong-Joo in DOTS ph adaptation been really vocal about it. Ive seen the series more than 3 times and just know everything about it haha but im already part of another show."
The TV series is scheduled to premiere sometime in May on GMA-7's Afternoon Prime block.
GMA-7 has also yet to announce the other cast members of Descendants of the Sun.
