Lee Yi-kyung imitates appearance of movie characters in new stills from ‘Welcome To Waikiki 2’

On March 15, JTBC’s new comedy Welcome To Waikiki 2 released hilarious new stills of its lead Lee Yi-kyung.

In the drama, Lee plays Lee Joon-ki, an aspiring actor auditioning for minor roles in movies and TV shows. In the first season of the series, his character is thriving as an actor for a drama called ‘Newsroom’ but it seems like he is auditioning and struggling again in season 2.

Lee is shown in the latest stills dressed as characters in different movies—The Bride from the American martial arts film Kill Bill, Grand Prince Suyang from the Korean movie The Face Reader, and even as a soldier. His cosplays are expected to bring much laughter and cheer to the show, and so is his accident-prone nature, which is evident in the last still where he is trying to control a fire extinguisher.

Welcome to Waikiki 2 (also known as Eulachacha Waikiki 2) will showcase the romances, aspirations, and friendships of young individuals gathered in the crisis-hit guesthouse called Waikiki. Lee Yi-kyung is joined by Kim Sun-ho and Shin Hyun-soo who are taking on the role of an aspiring singer and a former baseball player, respectively. Meanwhile, the female cast is led by Moon Ga-young, Ahn So-hee, and Kim Ye-won.

PD Lee Chang-min, who is best known for directing 2014’s Birth Of A Beauty, is helming Welcome to Waikiki for the second time as he was also the one who directed the first season. Welcome to Waikiki 2 will premiere on March 25, following the conclusion of Han Ji-min’s The Light In Your Eyes.

As a gender studies student, she loves analyzing K-dramas through the lens of gender politics and social justice. You're most likely to find her droning on and on about how Ji Hae-soo from It's Okay That's Love and Sung Bora from Reply 1988 are the best heroines to ever grace our screens. Her favorite dramas tend to be thrillers like Secret Forest and Signal, as well as heartwarming shows like Misaeng. When not in the mood for either of those, you can find her binging on shows about female friendships a la Age of Youth or rom-coms that come with sprinklings of feminism, like Because This Life Is My First. She lives in India, spends all her free time reading books, and would love nothing more than to meet Gong Hyo-jin and sign away her life's earnings to the actress.
