tvN is premiering not one but two fantasy dramas this month, with one of them being the IU-Yeo Jin-goo starrer Hotel del Luna. On July 1, the cable network dropped a poster featuring the main cast of the show.
Seen in the poster are the show’s leads, IU (My Mister) and Yeo Jin-goo (My Absolute Boyfriend), who play Hotel del Luna’s CEO and manager, respectively. They are flanked by K-pop stars P.O and Mina to their right, and Shin Jung-geun and Bae Hae-sun to their left. The group strikes a cheery pose as they get ready to welcome guests (or should we say, ghosts?) into their hotel.
Ahead of Hotel del Luna‘s premiere on July 13, tvN has been dropping teasers to amp up anticipation for the drama. The are also new still cuts from the series featuring IU looking dreamy as the luxurious but greedy beauty Jang Man-wol, who has been cursed to stay at the hotel for ghosts as punishment for her sins. The stills also show what looks like her first meeting with the vulnerable and gullible manager Goo Chan-Sung, played by Yeo Jin-goo. His character looks sharp in a fitted suit but his wary expression betrays his fear of ghosts. It remains to be seen how his character lands in the haunted hotel, but the teasers promise an exciting reveal.
As the Hong sisters’ first drama in almost two years, the buzz for the show has already gone through the roof. The sisters (Hong Jung-eun & Hong Mi-ran) are widely acknowledged as masters of the fantasy-horror-romance genre in K-dramas, having crafted shows like Master’s Sun and My Girlfriend Is A Gumiho. Add to that PD Oh Choong-hwan, the director of hits like While You Were Sleeping and My Love From Another Star.
Hotel del Luna will replace Song Joong-ki’s Arthdal Chronicles in tvN’s weekend drama time slot.
