Hotel King – Drama Review

As promised here I am writing to bid my farewell to “Hotel King” with this drama review post. Despite this drama flaws and my disappointments that I will take the opportunity to rant more about it here, I have to say that this may be one of the most memorable drama journey for me.

This drama is my first in many things, it is my first makjang drama I watch, the first weekend drama I watch and the first drama for me to cover live in the blog. So, I am sure it will always have a special place in my heart and that some of the scenes and dialogues in this drama will forever be in my memory along with the unique and very special feelings I had while watching it and our Dong-Hae/ChaMo Couple

Sorry if this is going to be a long post but apparently I have a lot to say about this drama and I hope you can bear with me and share your own thoughts about it as well 🙂

Hotel King – Episodes 15 and 16 [Thoughts]

Our drama “Hotel King” has just hit its halfway mark this week and this was the week of revelations.

Episode 16 really felt like an ending episode for a 16 episodes drama but then they showed us it is just the beginning and the real storm and struggles for our couple are about to begin which we will get to see in the next 16 episodes.

This drama don’t stop to surprise me in its pace and handling of events. It didn’t ever cross my mind that they will give us what they did in those episodes. Rather than the revelations/events themselves, I think it is when they give us those revelations is the thing that makes the shock and surprise.

I am not sure how this is possible specially for a long drama like this but each week I feel it is a turning point for the drama!!!

Lee Da-hae in Stills and BTS from “Hotel King” – [Photos and Videos]

A question my friends, shouldn’t such sizzling chemistry be banned as illegal????

Mmm…….OK, I take that back cause that will mean I won’t be able to see Dong-Hae together on my screen but another idea, may be it should be illegal unless they are married?? 😉 😀

Jokes aside, I really can’t get enough of watching how sweet and real Lee Da-hae and Lee Dong Wook together not only on screen but also in all the BTS videos.

We already know how great they look on and off screen since “My Girl” days but as I mentioned before, the level of comfort they both feel together after all this time and their maturity makes the feeling of their chemistry is much deeper for me now ❤

I really feel so lucky these days with MBC pouring us with stills, BTS videos and pictures from “Hotel King” which is actually making me even more greedy waiting for more from my favorite scenes from the drama.

So, enough talking and hope you enjoy all the pictures and videos (along with some translations and Gifs) ^^

(P.S. Expect this post to be long 😉 )

Hotel King – Episodes 3 and 4


OOH MY!!! I just can’t believe how much happened and we get to see in just 2 episodes !!!

Although we started slow with episode 3 but what a BANG that episode 4 gave us. The problems in the drama that I mentioned in my First Impressions post are still there and may be more flaws start to show up but regardless I can say that I am officially hooked. I am not sure how I will be able to wait a week for the next episode T_T.

For me, if I get to choose a word to describe this drama it will be “INTENSE” which is right up to my ally. My heart kept pounding hard with almost every scene in EP 4 and ended up skipping a beat with THAT final scene ❤

I really planned to write up only some thoughts about the episodes here but I think it ended up more like a recap and quite long, that surely proves how much I like talking about this drama kkk ^^

Hotel King – First Impressions

At last I have some time to write my thoughts about “Hotel King“!!

As you may already know, the drama premiered on 5th of April and for me it was up for a good start as I enjoyed the first two episodes.

It is not mind blowing and I surely have some concerns but the first two episodes captured my interest and kept me wanting to see more and I must say that I liked the episodes more with each replay (Yes I did that many times actually specially Episode 2 😀 )

But what I am invested in the most right now are the characters and their interactions specially our two leads Lee Da-hae and Lee Dong Wook and also Kim Hae Sook and Lee Duk Hwa as I am looking forward to know more about them.

So here I share some thoughts about the first week for our drama and hope you also tell me about what I thought of it.
