Hotel Del Luna has gained ratings as well as popularity since its premiere back in July. I started it but currently its status is on hold for me, leaning towards dropped category as my interest is very minimal for this fantasy show. I like the setting, acting, music, characters, IU‘s costumes. But somehow it lacks that magic that I expect from the writers, my favorite, the Hong Sisters. Or else, I’m unsuccessful in funding that hook which enables me to continue a drama. Or the Master’s Sun-esque episodic format is the downside. Maybe I will get back to it when in the right mood.
The drama is soon ending its victorious run and there is a cherry on top for fans as Kim Soo Hyun will be making a cameo appearance in its finale. This will be his first drama appearance since completing the military service. The show has already given us guest appearances by many stars like Lee Jun Ki, Sulli, etc. Kim Soo Hyun has previously worked with leading lady IU in Dream High (2011) and The Producers (2015), while leading man Yeo Jin Goo played child counterpart to his hero in superhit 2012 drama The Moon That Embraces The Sun. He has also worked with the PD on another hit show You From Another Star. So a lot of reunions here!
Hotel Del Luna airs on Saturdays and Sundays and its final episode arrives on September 1.
