It’s complete utter love at first sight for tvN‘s upcoming “killing romance” My Secret Hotel, everything except for second male lead Namgong Min dressed like a human dalmatian. The cast of the quirky concept drama gathered for the press conference last week, a week chock full of K-drama press conferences left and right, with the drama airing this coming Monday now that High School King of Savvy has wrapped up. I was totally uninterested in that one since I don’t like anyone in that cast but I adore this cast consisting of Yoo In Na, Jin Yi Han, and a non-dalmatian looking Namgong Min based on the previews and stills. Overall this was a pretty cast press conference if the black-and-white dotted one is excised from the pictures but its the creative teasers and previews that have me all excited.
The first teaser where a body falls through floors and lands in the middle of a wedding was macabre humor at its best. Plus this drama is actually attempted something more than a divorced couple get back together redux romance, the murder mystery that happens at the central hotel setting will drive the plot forward and weave in all the major characters as there is more than meets the eye. I’m pretty certain the end game is the two divorced lead characters played by Yoo In Na and Jin Yi Han which is fine by me since I find their character interactions in the long preview hilarious and sizzling with chemistry. But I also quite enjoy having Namgong Min as the smiling alternative who is plenty charming in his own way. Check out the awesome long preview below and hopefully this one will kick start what has been a pretty placid Summer K-drama season so far.
