A possibly undead owner and a scaredy-cat hotelier in Hotel del Luna
Hotel del Luna’s promo game is going on strong with the release of two character posters and a couple more stills. Yeo Jin-gu (My Absolute Boyfriend) stars as an elite hotelier, who, by a fateful circumstance, becomes the general manager of Hotel del Luna, a hotel that only takes ghost guests. IU (My Ajusshi) plays the temperamental but aloof hotel owner whose beauty is like the moon. Together, they begin to run Hotel del Luna, as strange happenings occur around them.
The extravagant, beautiful hotel owner, played by IU, claims in her poster: “I’m not dead,” but then how could she own a hotel with only ghosts as guests? Yeo Jin-gu’s character is a hotelier with a perfect resumé and a cold logic, but he’s also a scaredy cat who jumps whenever he sees a ghost. Despite his fear, his poster says in reply to IU’s: “I’ve come to want to know about you and this hotel.”
The still cuts shown below are from the set on the first day of filming. After the first day, it is reported that Yeo Jin-gu said of IU: “It was as if Jang Man-wol [IU’s character] was really walking toward me, and I can’t forget it. The character really fits her well. I could tell she prepared to make her character so cool and pretty, and I’m looking forward to working with her.” The filming crew said of the two together: “It was as if IU and Yeo Jin-gu had talked a lot about this before. Because the characters are so unique, we thought it would take some time to get used to, but from the beginning, their compatibility was great, and filming ended smoothly.”
tvN’s new Saturday-Sunday supernatural-romance drama, Hotel del Luna, written by the Hong Sisters and directed by PD Oh Choong-hwan (While You Were Sleeping, Doctors), will begin to air on July 13.
