Hotel King’s premiere is right around the corner, and here are a bunch of promo shots and a highlight preview for the show, which is basically an extended teaser.

Lee Dong-wook and Lee Dae-hae have reteamed after first meeting in the bubbly romance My Girl eight years ago, which catapulted them both to fame. This time... More »

by | February 24, 2014 | 69 Comments
Well, these photos aren’t much to go on for upcoming weekend drama Hotel King, which has only just had its script reading and has therefore supplied us with no promo shots of Lee Dong-wook and Lee Da-hae in character, cozying up all romantic-like, preferably with lots of skinship and flirting. So we’ll have to make... More »

by | January 25, 2014 | 57 Comments
Lee Dong-wook is poised to turn hotelier for an upcoming MBC drama Hotel King—or rather become one again, as he was a hotel chaebol in My Girl (not that he did much… hotelier-ing in that). The role he’s considering favorably is of a cold, perfect hotelier who harbors a grudge against his father for ditching... More »

I don’t know if I’m just feeling emotional today, but today’s episode totally brought tears to my eyes, and for the best reasons. Not with big drama or grand gestures and intrigue, but for character moments that meant something, that were loaded with feeling and significance. With one episode left to go, the show is... More »

Ooh, a nice (and speedy) step up from yesterday. We’ve got some cuteness, some reversals, some more plotting (sigh, if we must), some squee (eeee), and even a surprise or two.
