This says something about my busy schedule that I have not published a single post about my favorite writers’, the Hong Sisters, new drama. To think it already got premiered, phew! But better late than never, right!. The writer duo’s new show Hotel Del Luna is again a fantasy after their last show Hwayugi (or A Korean Odyssey) and it is again being broadcast on cable network tvN. It just aired its first episode yesterday. The lead cast includes IU and Yeo Jin Goo. It’s amazing how the latter is doing one show after the other without break — he has already starred in The Crowned Clown and My Absolute Boyfriend just this year! IU was last seen in 2018’s highly acclaimed drama My Ajhussi.
Hotel Del Luna is about well, hotel. But there is a catch. It only takes ghosts as guests. IU plays the beautiful owner and Yeo Jin Goo plays the hotelier who is also scared of ghosts. This hotel is not seen by the humans. I love the premise already with mystery and fun written all over it. I confess to not liking last few shows by the writers (Read: Big, Warm And Cozy, Hwayugi — the last 2 I dropped) but my love is too strong (Delightful Girl Choon Hyang, Greatest Love, You’re Beautiful) to make me excited for every new drama they announce.
Hotel Del Luna airs on Saturdays and Sundays. The direction is by the PD of Doctors, While You Were Sleeping and You Who Came From the Stars.
