Script read and poster shoot for My Girl Hotel King

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 do with some boring table read shots, and let our imaginations fill in the rest.

(True story: I was writing this post and wrote My Girl instead of Hotel King, and then felt embarrassed and told self to Get It Together Already, and then went and tagged the post with a My Girl tag by accident. My hands have a mind of their own and can’t be trusted not to My Girl-ify everything about this drama, apparently! Which is going to be interesting given that Hotel King is actually in no way tonally like the fizzy romance of My Girl, and is instead a lot more like the broody revenge of Bad Guy. Can we just mix those together and get My Bad Girl instead?)

So, plot refresher: Hotel King is the drama about Lee Dong-wook who plays a character who was abandoned by his father as a child and grows up seeking revenge. He becomes a cold-hearted general manager at a luxe hotel, where he encounters Lee Da-hae playing the bright and cheerful hotel heiress and becomes her father’s enemy. WAIT. They’re not siblings, right? They mean he’s going to seek revenge on some other rich absentee father, not the heroine’s father who runs the hotel, right? Because I’m not sure my affection for My Girl can withstand yet another sibling fauxcest turn. I’m just gonna believe that a crucial detail has been left out of the description (like where she’s adopted, or Bad Daddy’s his stepfather) and ignore that thought for now.

At bottom, we have a couple shots of Wang Ji-hye from the drama’s poster shoots, which the actress posted on her Instagram account. She’ll play the manager of the hotel’s restaurant who gave up the hero for money, but still carries a torch for him.

Hotel King will broadcast on MBC weekends beginning March 29.

She's had so much work done, she looks like a different person from her My Girl days.

Hell, with the more recent changes to her face it probably won't even look like the LDW/LDH combination we knew and loved from My Girl.

Ah, so LDH confirmed. I dont care if I have to watch a remake of My Girl. I just need Hotel King to be zippy and full of chemistry between LDH and LDW like My Girl. Am I repeating myself here? Hmmm

OMG the My Girl feels!!!
gahhh!! i am not really worried, because regardless of the story there will be sizzling chemistry between the two. They've done it before and they can do it again!
ahhaa but i am pretty sure this one will be filled with extra angst, being a melo/revenge genre that it is.

I love My Girl! Guess I'll have to watch this :•) Lee Dong Wook and Lee Da Hae had great chemistry together!
And I just realised that Lee Dong Wook and Seulong will be acting together again haha. Although I didn't watch Mandate of Heaven except for some parts here and there, I did follow the recaps here :•)

How is it possible that they look so gorgeous. I've never been more excited by a reunion. My Girl will forever be my rom com fix, the first drama I ever watched apart from my mother and rented video tapes weekly. I got through all sixteen episodes in two days of the holidays actually ahem.

its amazing how ldh has improved her face so naturally.for those who are wondering, abt e fuller face,its collagen injections.i knw because i enquired abt laser therapy etc n e doc suggested these.

anyway so much for facial enhancements.its amazing that both of them are in white for e script reading but e rest of e pple are in black n darker colours!

looking fwd to e shw.

I hope the writers know what they are doing casting Lee Da Hee and Lee Dong Wook together again. Because just in case this show is in no way going to be somewhat similar to My Girl in terms of zippy plots or say, chemistry, they are going to lose ratings so so quickly. Even if it was a good drama, they are potentially attracting the wrong market through the casting. But hopefully I'm wrong...

I love everytime javabeans fangirling over My Girl and its main couple. It's cute xD
I never watch weekend dramas, but I will definitely watch this one, even if the story is not my cup of tea just for filling my shipper heart and for trip down memory lane with this couple xD

i absolutely loved my girl + their chemistry. however, idk if the plot sounds interesting to me as of now... it's tough because ppl are prbly gonna compare this and my girl a lot due to similar characters they're both playing. whatever all thoughts aside, i'm still gonna watch it for the sake of LDW + LDH heh

Awww, man. Sounds like a melo. LDH is long overdue for a romcom. I liked her spunky, quirky, and smart character in My Girl but haven't watched anything with her in it since. Maybe because the characters she's been playing haven't been that relatable but this one seems promising!

Sounds like other generic kdrama for me, but Lee Dong Wook and Lee Dae Hee are still feasts for the eyes. So I am up for everything. Anyway, I suddenly want Song Ji Hyo to participate in ths drama, a Bad Ji HYo.

if he is seekin g revenge, then Lee Dong Wook better be as daring as in Asian Tour of Running Man... do anything. all out.
as to the father confusion, it might be more interesting if the girl is an actual daughter and the guy is adopted and abandoned
but I hope they find a different path
anyway, just rewatched My Girl, so this makes me smile pretty wide

I don't even care about it's storyline as of the moment, i will check this out because i wanted to see if Lee Da Hae & Lee Dong Wook still have that sizzling chemistry they had in My Girl.. And ofcourse the bromance of Lee Dong Wook and Seulong, i do hope they have a bromance in here.. And i wish they could get Lee Jun Ki to do a cameo and maybe even Park Si Yeon and they could do a 'My Girl' parody in one of the scene like in YWCFTS.. It will an epic My Girl Reunion between the four of them..

I'm actually excited to see Gong Chan & Yoo Rin again (even if it's not actually them)..

LDW and LDH are the reasons why My Girl was good and popular. Great chemistry and the story is crazy sometimes but worth it. You should def watch it esp with Hotel King coming up.

I don't see plastic surgery, just a frozen face like most actors and actresses lately. I read somewhere that even teenagers are forced to get botox so not surprising.

I wonder what the side effect of getting botox so young will look like as they get older.

Actually the story goes that our manager will be come an enemy of his own father for our heiress not her father.

So, it is like they are going to face and fight the hero's father together. So don't worry much dramabeans :)
