IU and Yeo Jin-goo‘s character posters for their upcoming fantasy drama Hotel del Luna have been released on June 24 by tvN.
Hotel del Luna tells the story of top-flight hotelier Koo Chan-sung, played by Yeo Jin-goo (The Crowned Clown), who takes over as manager of a mysterious hotel that only caters to ghosts. The hotel is owned by an eccentric woman named Jang Man-wol (IU, My Mister) who has been condemned to spend the rest of her life in the hotel as punishment for her sins.
The character posters released on Monday show Jang Man-wol’s beauty and Koo Chan-sung’s good looks, with the full moon as the backdrop. IU’s poster, which reads “I’m… not dead yet,” raises more interests in her character. Jang Man-wol is the beautiful owner of a hotel that only reveals itself and provides its services to wandering ghosts, which begs the question: Is she a ghost or a human being? And if she is not dead, why and how does she “exist” in the hotel?
Meanwhile, Yeo Jin-goo’s poster reads: “I wanted to get to know you and this hotel.” His character, Koo Chan-sung, is an award-winning hotel manager who has a Harvard MBA and has been offered jobs by three of the world’s top 100 hotels. His excellent professional background raises curiosity as to how he ends up as the manager of the mysterious hotel and why he wants to work with Jang Man-wol given also that he is afraid of ghosts.
Directed by PD Oh Choong-hwan of While You Were Sleeping and written by the Hong sisters of A Korean Odyssey, Hotel del Luna will air every Saturday and Sunday at 9 p.m. Korean Standard Time beginning July 13.
