IU Reunites with Yeo Jin Gu After Hotel Del Luna as Guest Star of His Variety Show House on Wheels

I’ve been catching up to the latest season of Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village but when I’m done I’ll definitely check out House on Wheels. Starring Sung Dong Il, Kim Hee Won, and Yeo Jin Gu, the trio of two veterans and one baby-faced grown up child actor travel around South Korea in their mobile home and share the experience with various guest stars. IU is the latest to take a spin on the House on Wheels and it marks the first time (I believe) she’s reunited with Yeo Jin Gu since their hit drama Hotel Del Luna last summer. I thought they had great chemistry just not the opposite sex variety, they felt more like noona-dongsaeng but a couple that would bicker but support each other.
