In the last week, rumors have circulated the drama community about a Pakistan remake of the South Korean drama Descendants of the Sun (2016) and about the actor who was going to play Capitain Yoo Shi Jin (played by Song Joong Ki )
His name is Imran Abbas Naqvi (34), a Pakistani former model and actor. Abbas made his film debut with a leading role in the 2013 romantic drama ''Anjuman''. In the following year, he appeared in Bollywood's monster horror film ''Creature 3D'', which earned him the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut nomination.
Sadly the rumors are all fake. People confused a few posts on his Instagram, believing them to be a remake of Descendants of the Sun. The pictures in question (and here in the article) are from a music video he did celebrating Pakistan's Independence day (August 14.)
On forums and social media, opinions were divided. Some people believed that he wouldn't be able to play a charismatic male lead (as Song Joon Ki could), while others felt that he would be perfect and even better suited for the role. Unfortunately, it seems like we will never know.
P.S Here is the Music Video:
