Wow. This is as rare as blue rose to see a leading couple acting together again in dramaland but here is a great news, especially for all die-hard fans of one of the most popular dramas My Girl, that Lee Dong Wook and Lee Da Hae are reuniting for the new MBC weekender titled Hotel King. This is absolutely like a dream come true for fans as I have seen so many viewers who loved the couple to pieces. As for me, I really liked the drama a lot (which was written by my favorite Hong Sisters) and their chemistry was amazing as well. Apparently, Lee Da Hae has worked more than once with another of her costar Jang Hyuk: in Chuno, Robber and IRIS 2. Now I want my Delightful Girl Choon Hyang reunion as well!!
Hotel King features Lee Dong Wook as a man who was abandoned by his father and now he is a cold person and general manager in a hotel where Lee Da Hae’s character is the heiress. She is a cheerful and bubbly girl. So we are having a bit of a switcheroo here as he played a hotelier in My Girl. Anyway, the hotel faces crisis and the two leads will together try to save it, falling in love in the process. Being a weekend drama, Hotel King is sure to have lots of episodes or at least more than the present normal count of 20 (oh where are the days when we used to have 16 episodes!) but I’m so willing to give it a try only because of the OTP. My Girl came in 2005 and it has been 8 YEARS since they appeared together. Their lovely pairing as well as the changes in them from those days (the older fashion, trends as well as the acting) till now will be another interesting factor to look for.
Hotel King will follow Gold Rainbow and premieres on March 29. The PD has shows like Just Like Today and Enjoy Life under his belt while the writer penned Feast Of The Gods. The other cast members are Gong Hyun Joo (Dummy Mommy) and Kpop group VIXX‘s N.
