Mar 07,2019
Singer-actor Lee Ji-eun, better known as IU, and actor Yeo Jin-goo have been cast as the lead characters in tvN’s upcoming series “Hotel del Luna.”

According to the cable network, the series will revolve around a special, mysterious hotel that is only visible to ghosts. IU will play the role of Jang Man-wol, a hotel owner who, after committing a big crime, is stuck in the hotel for a long time. Despite her beautiful and elegant appearance, she is actually a greedy, quick-tempered and whimsical woman. Although IU debuted as a singer in 2008, she is also known as an actor through her roles in SBS’s “Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo” (2016) and tvN’s “My Mister” (2018).

Yeo will play the role of Gu Chan-seong, an elite hotelier who is a perfectionist. Although he pretends to be strong and practical on the outside, he is actually a weak-minded man. Yoo, who made his debut as an actor in 2005, recently starred in tvN’s historical series “The Crowned Clown,” which aired its last episode on Monday.
