IU will reportedly be starring in the upcoming drama Hotel del Luna alongside actor Yeo Jin Goo.
It was previously announced that IU was set to appear on the series and an insider has recently revealed that Yeo Jin Goo has also been selected for a lead role in the same drama.
Yeo Jin Goo has been selected as a lead role in tvN’s weekend drama Hotel del Luna, which will begin airing this summer.
Hotel del Luna is a fantasy drama based on a hotel for wandering ghosts. The glamor of Hotel del Luna can only be seen by the souls who cannot leave this world and to the average person’s eye, it is simply a shabby old hotel located in the heart of Seoul.
IU will be playing the role of Jang Man Wol, who has been cursed for a sin she committed in the past. Because she cannot find a soul who has committed a greater sin than herself, she has been forced to be the president of the Hotel del Luna for 1,000 years. And while she is elegant and beautiful like the moon, she is in fact an old woman with an ill-tempered, fickle and greedy personality.
Yeo Jin Goo will be playing the role of Goo Chan Sung, a super elite hotelier with an over-obsessive personality. He is a successful, self-made man and he cannot hide his pride. And just as he earned the title of the youngest assistant manager of a multinational hotel corporation, he becomes the manager of the hotel of ghosts, “Hotel del Luna,” alongside Jang Man Wol (IU).
The series will be directed by PD Oh Choong Hwan, who has created Doctors and While You Were Sleeping, and written by the Hong Sisters (Hong Jeong Eun, Hong Mi Ran), who have written Couple or Trouble, Hong Gil-dong, My Girlfriend Is a Nine-Tailed Fox, Master’s Sun and A Korean Odyssey.
IU and Yeo Jin Goo’s Hotel del Luna is set to begin airing in August following Asadal Chronicles so stay tuned!
