MBC’s upcoming drama Hotel King brought together the cast members for its script reading.
The PD and the cast members, including Lee Dong Wook, Lee Da Hae, 2AM’s Seulong and others got together for two rounds of script reading, which took place at MBC’s Dream Center in Ilsan and Lotte Hotel in Sogong-dong in the middle of February.
Before the script reading took place, Kim Jin Min CP (chief producer) said, “We’re going to put our full trust in the staff and writer,” and Kim Dae Jin PD said, “I hope we can all enjoy our start. I’m going to do my best.”
Lee Dong Wook commented, “I will try to do well, instead of working hard,” while Lee Da Hae said, “I usually don’t get nervous, but I’m nervous here now. I think I can film comfortably thanks to my senior and junior actors
Nicknamed the ‘army idiot,’ Super Junior-M’s Henry made a mistake…again.
On February 23’s broadcast of MBC’s Real Man, Henry and K.Will passed their training and joined the other cast members on base.
After a quick hidden camera, Henry was asked which higher officer was most handsome. Henry, being the honest person he is, chose one of the officers, saying he looks like a pineapple, suddenly making the atmosphere cold and uncomfortable.
A higher officer began to scold ZE:A’s Park Hyung Sik, who was in charge of taking care of Henry, as the episode ended with the drama still up in the air.
Will Henry get in a lot of trouble? Or are the superiors just pulling his leg?

Wonderful Days 23
Im Seul-ong, Wang Ji-hye
It’s a casting bonanza for Hotel King, which has not only secured Lee Dong-wook and Lee Da-hae as its leads (omg My Girl squee), but a whole bunch more to make up the supporting cast.
Let’s start with Im Seul-ong, 2AM idol and budding actor, whose casting makes me aww if only because I seriously loved his bromancey relationship with Lee Dong-wook in their last drama, Mandate of Heaven. (Note: I did not love Lee Dong-wook in that drama, but I loved the guys’ arc from childhood best friends to estranged adults to co-conspirators and teammates.) Seul-ong plays a hotelier (as do most of our characters) at the fancy 7-star Hotel CL (do they even make hotels with that many stars?), and his character sounds like just the kind of guy to make audiences fall for him as the second lead: He’s smart, loyal, positive and hard-working with a heo-dang side that keeps him a little offbeat

Parodying the hit SBS drama, Yoo Jae Suk transformed into Chun Song Yi of You Who Came From the Stars on the most recent episode of Running Man.
