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 🙂

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!!!

As per Lee Da-hae‘s Chinese teacher in her latest Weibo update, our girl was very busy filming “Hotel King” on her birthday but we got those pictures above from the set and it seems some staff members prepared a cake to celebrate this occasion with her ❤
And in addition to this, we got so many new amazing BTS pictures which really made my day.
My girl is SO CUTE here and looks really happy in every single shot of those, I always feel happy seeing her smiling and laughing like this and from all the pictures, the atmosphere of the set looks so friendly and warm.
While I really hoped we get new teaser this week but I thought it would be hard to have more than 4 teasers for the drama and we will have to wait for the long preview or the first episode preview to see new scenes of the drama.
But the good news that the production team behind “Hotel King” drama didn’t disappoint me and not only gave us new teaser but also included in it all what I wanted to see and mentioned before.
So, we got many cute, funny and swoon worthy moments between our leads Lee Da-hae and Lee Dong Wook and also got to see more of our second leads and the rest of the cast. YAAAY!!
After about 4 hours I just stopped replaying this teaser to write this post, it is really great. And in addition to my heart which I can hear its loud hard beats, my nervous stomach is giving me hard time because yes I am just that excited seeing this and anxious for this drama to air already ❤
Now, check below for the teaser and some GIFs 🙂
I really need to say that I am now more satisfied of MBC publicity for the drama. So, even thought it started slow but to give us 4 teasers till now and all these BTS pictures is really good.
But what I still find lacking is the release of official stills and as much as I love to see more of our leads and I am so eager to see a scene in which they have dialogue together next but I am surprised from the fact that actually we still didn’t get much of our second leads specially our second female lead whom we didn’t get either still or BTS or even a glimpse of her in the teasers till now is surely something . So, here is to hope they give us this in the next teasers.
But for now we got to see more of Lee Da-hae, Lee Dong Wook, Seulong, Lee Duk Hwa and other cast members in those latest BTS pictures of the first visit of our Heiress to the hotel which we got to see in the first teaser.
WOW, WHAT A DAY !!! I still can’t control my feeling of excitement, happiness and… What? I don’t even know what I feel!! This drama with this couple is just driving me crazy already before even premiering and I feel it is actually taking away my ability to write anything coherent or meaningful. Sorry for this, but try to bear with me and excuse my shippy and obsessed fan heart ^^
So, apparently someone in MBC finally realized that they didn’t give us a single still yet for “Hotel King” and decided to start doing their job promoting this drama!! Phew!!! But OK I forgive them for now after they gave us those amazing stills and BTS pictures of Lee Da-hae and Lee Dong Wook.
But Unlike what we got to see in the few scenes of the drama that aired in the MBC Section TV Interview with our couple, those first stills of our couple are quite sad but we surely expect to see that in our drama, don’t we?
Now, I have to stop wasting any more time to give you what you actually here to see 😉
