With a flurry of Spring dramas starting next week onward, it’s yet another press conference season and kickstarting it all is the upcoming MBC weekend drama Hotel King with Lee Dong Wook and Lee Da Hae leading a huge cast. It’s predecessor Golden Rainbow wraps up this weekend so Hotel King isn’t premiering until next weekend on April 5th, but it’s nice to see the drama is totally on the ball and is holding its press conference relatively early. It’ll also give me time to get over what the heck Lee Da Hae showed up wearing. If this was Cancun and she was strolling through a hotel, I would say she looked fantastically stunning with a lavender bathing suit cover dress that is form fitting with a cute pleated one strap on the side. Her matching old school bikini underneath is pretty rocking on her ridiculously slim body. But a drama press conference isn’t a beach resort and she showed up wearing what amounts to resort wear and showing off her undergarments merits just a big head shake from me. At least it gets people talking and isn’t pushing the edge of super skanky, and reminds me of when Yoon Eun Hye showed up for the Missing You press conference wearing a Dolce & Gabbana couture dress made out of grandma’s old sofa covers. Just because an outfit is expensive and name brand doesn’t mean it automatically looks good. The rest of the HK cast fares much better and Kim Hae Sook made me chuckle with her sassy grandma in tight clubbing gear look. Go for it, girlfriend! Lee Dong Wook looks reliably put together and definitely rocks the chemistry with Lee Da Hae, though both leads also look great with the second leads Wang Ji Hye and Im Seulong. I wouldn’t mind some complicate fourway love square in this drama. The long preview is out and is the most interesting of all the teasers to date, I’m fully onboard now and excited to watch this drama.
