First script read for tvN rom-com My Secret Hotel

New romantic-comedy murder mystery My Secret Hotel is headed to tvN on Mondays and Tuesdays in about a month, and the first teaser is out along with stills of the cast gathered for the first script read. Besides being excited for the romantic entanglements of Yoo Inna (You From Another Star), Jin Yi-han (A New Leaf), and Namgoong Min (I Need Romance 3), I’m intrigued by the genre mashup, because any show that calls itself a “killing romance” certainly piques my interest, even if it’s to ask, What the heck is that?

The teaser is frustratingly unhelpful at answering the question, but it does tell us that the hotel where the story takes place is the height of luxury where they’ll plan your perfect wedding with kind service. Who knows, perhaps they really plan your wedding and then kill you with kindness. Yoo Inna stars as the hotel’s wedding planning manager, and faces the biggest challenge of her job when she has to plan her ex-husband’s second wedding. Jin Yi-han plays the architect ex-hubby who reappears in her life after seven years, and their fates get twisted together again and again with one disaster after another.

The major disaster is a murder at the hotel, which will be the central mystery involving all of our characters. Namgoong Min plays the hotel’s director who has every female employee swooning, and Lee Young-eun (To the Beautiful You) is the public relations manager who competes with Yoo Inna for both a promotion and the hotel director’s heart. And in Jin Yi-han’s circle, there’s Ha Yeon-joo (Miss Korea) who’s been cast as his fiancée, and Choi Jung-won (I Need a Fairy) who plays his co-worker.

I’m rooting for Yoo Inna to knock ’em dead with her second leading role, so fingers crossed that a killing romance is a good thing. My Secret Hotel premieres August 18.

Hope it is good. Would Namgoong Min have different hair style someday?

Seriously, he always looks like he is on the verge of tears.

Rooting for Yi-han and glad Yoo Inna doesn't have the botox, shiny face look she has been sporting for the last 2 years.

TVN has earned their place as the place for watchable dramas, so I will give the drama a chance.

Yep, that teaser really teased me...I thought I was going to see our leads already...but not! I'm curious about who really is the 2nd male lead. It probably or most likely isn't Jin Yi Han again, right? >___________<

From what I could get from the previous posts, Yi Han is the lead and Namgoong Min is firmly stuck in second lead territry.

Since Jin YiHan is playing the ex-hubby, I'm pretty sure he's the first male lead.

Killing romance? I'm confused as well. But preview, teaser and spoiler in dramaland are always as vague as ever.
I'll watch this because I love 3 leads. Jin Yi Han seems the male lead right? Is this gonna be ex-couple reunited again drama?

probably. i think that's part of koreans fascination with first loves, but because it's tvn it might actually be different and unique, they are the reason i still have faith for k-dramas!

Is Jin Yi Han going to have tendrils for this drama?? Please no! i want him to retain his mane of glory! Haha....or at least without the curlies!

I'm hoping Yoo Inna slays this as well. So looking forward to this because of her. Oh...and Jin Yi Han too. I've yet to see him in a make out session. Thank gawd this is cable! Go Inna, go!!!

Yay, script reads!

I hope JYH has a better hairstyle in the drama. That being said, I'm excited for this! And the teaser was very pretty and stylish even if it didn't tell us much. Can't wait until we get a teaser with the actual actors.

Gah, please let it be good! The premise sounds like it could be good campy fun, and I love both Yoo Inna and Namgoong Min from past projects (even if I wish Namgoong Min could get the heck outta the mopey second lead roles).

I liked his role in Unemployed Romance though, but I agree that I want to seem him in a GOOD drama as the lead. (NOT in WCASBS) Or will I have to be satisfied just re-watching OneFineDay and CanYouHearMYVoice?

Oooh, the premise sounds interesting. I love whodunnit! Hopefully, this will be executed well.

I actually thought it would be a nice twist if Yoo Inna's character was the killer (even if she killed them just by accident).

But then ... I guess we wouldn't have the imminent danger of a killer on the loose in the hotel to add spice and urgency to the romance!

Yaaaay, Yoo In Na! Be awesome.

I'll be interested to see when stills from the set actually appear *__* I'm a fan of quirky drama mash-ups...and murder mysteries. It sounds like a locked room mystery, haha, where they're stuck in one place trying to figure everything out. I'd give them props if they manage to do that for a whole drama.

So excited for this! YAY Yoo In Na and Jin Yi Han! They're going to make a great couple, I can feel it.

And I'm really hoping that the murder mystery holds up it's end in this drama because it's certainly a very important aspect of the show (unlike Let's Eat, where it didn't really matter). If the show can create a well thought out mystery, AND throw in some laughs and romance, then I'd say we have a very fun show to look forward to :)

This is only slightly related to this post, but were the English words at the end of the trailer, "killing hotel," intentionally spoken in English with a Korean accent or are they English words that have been added to the Korean language with the pronunciation tweaked a bit to fit within the language?

I'm (slowly) learning Korean & watching dramas helps a lot, but there is so much English mixed in sometimes that I get confused as to whether the person is just using English or an English-inspired Korean word. Taxi, ice cream, restaurant, for ex, are some words that I know have been taken into the Korean language but what about some of the words used here.

As a corollary, it also often confuses me when a drama has an English name but it's written in Hangul. I remember when I learned Hangul & realized that one of my very first dramas, Full House, was like that. I'd just assumed "Full House" was an English translation of the Korean words full and house. But lo and behold, when I read the Hangul it actually just says Full House. This practice still throws me a bit b/c I haven't figured out why that's done or where it came from. That's like naming an American show "Saranghae," which would result in most Americans not actually knowing what it means. This may be a good topic for OT. Maybe some ppl who are more advanced in their studies or native Koreans can give me some insight into this.

Geez, that very short video is most definitely a teaser. D;

Really looking forward to watching this drama. Yoo Inna drew me in initially, but I'm liking the quirky plot and I'm also excited to learn more about the male leads + their acting. :D

I saw the first two episodes on Viki.com. The tone reminds me of the US show "Castle." It's mostly the usual lighter rom-com vibe but then there are flashes of violence. Not a spoiler since it's being touted as a killing romance.
