Catch a falling comet for some luck in JTBC’s Woohoo Waikiki 2
If anyone was worried that this season would tone down the manic, slapstick gags, I don’t think you have anything to fear. JTBC’s youth comedy Woohoo Waikiki 2 has released another trailer featuring the three co-owners of the titular guesthouse, Kim Sun-ho (100 Days My Prince), Lee Yi-kyung (Red Moon, Blue Sun), and Shin Hyun-soo (Twelve Nights). And while I’m disappointed that we don’t get to see any of our main leading ladies yet (what’s the holdup JTBC??), I’m really looking forward to watching these three idiots hopefully bumble their way to financial security and save their guesthouse.
The trailer starts off with the trio in dire straits, with their landlady kicking them out for their failure to pay the rent for several months. While Lee Yi-kyung believes that something to save their guesthouse will fall into their laps, a comet literally smashes into the middle of their building, tearing a hole in the middle of their common living area. Lee Yi-kyung and Shin Hyun-soo, who I hereby dub as dumb and dumber, are overjoyed at the prospect of selling this space rock, hoping to use whatever profit to retain their guesthouse. As for Kim Sun-ho, ever the worrywart, he’s more concerned about the very noticeable, and quite hazardous, hole that they have in the middle of their living space.
I’m expecting most of dumb and dumber’s antics to end up in comedic mishap, and I’m sure their plan to sell their lucky comet results in hilarious failure. In the meantime, they still have a tight deadline to prevent their guesthouse from being sold, and so their Plan B is to… pimp out Kim Sun-ho to their landlady? Ew. There’s a montage of rather icky moments of him and the landlady out on “dates,” like on a merry-go-round together or eating a romantic dinner, with heart-shaped lights to boot. The trailer ends with Kim Sun-ho whirling the landlady to prevent her from witnessing something, and dramatically (and a bit desperately) confessing, “I love you!”
JTBC’s Woohoo Waikiki 2 will premiere next week on March 25, and will take over the Monday-Tuesday slot from currently airing The Light in Your Eyes.
