Hotel Del Luna (2019)
“Feeling sad and disappointed is only natural when witnessing disappearances. When a flower withers away, just like it dreams of new blossom, you’ll live, meet, and love again.”
Hotel Del Luna Synopsis : IU stars as Jang Man Wol, the supernatural head honcho of Hotel Del Luna, an ephemeral hotel which is mostly staffed by a slew of supernatural crew and serves spirits who are in need of a dwelling in the human realm. Gu Chan Sung (Yeo Jin Goo) takes up employment at Hotel Del Luna as a human manager after fortuitous events led his father to become indebted to Jang Man Wol. As he settles into his role, Gu Chan Sung slowly unravels the secrets behind the hotel and its longstanding owner. (Source : Soompi)
