While IU and Yeo Jin Goo shine as the main leads of tvN’s “Hotel Del Luna,” the supporting characters are also capturing the attention of viewers.
The mysterious Hotel Del Luna houses three ghost hoteliers who have vowed, “We will protect this hotel until the day our grudges have been lifted.” They are bartender Kim Sun Bi (played by Shin Jung Geun), Head of Room Services Choi Seo Hee (played by Bae Hae Sun), and doorman Ji Hyun Joong (played by Block B’s P.O).
The stills below show the moments at which each of these characters first met the ageless owner of Hotel Del Luna, Jang Man Wol (played by IU). Here are three secrets of these characters that have yet to be revealed:
Kim Sun Bi had fulfilled his dream of passing the imperial examination and was about to return home in glory until he met a sudden death. This was all that was revealed about the character’s past in episode 6 of the drama. Unlike Choi Seo Hee and Ji Hyun Joong, nothing has been said about how Kim Sun Bi died, why he has worked at Hotel Del Luna for 500 years, or when he will pass on to the afterlife. However, at seeing leaves grow on the ancient tree, he was the first to say, “Let’s send off Manager Goo,” and strongly expressed his inability to leave Hotel Del Luna, drawing curiosity as to his backstory.
Choi Seo Hee was the wife of the oldest son of a mighty clan, but she wrongfully died at the hands of the clan. At the sound of Choi Seo Hee’s bitter cries, Jang Man Wol found her, and she has since been working as the Head of Room Services for 200 years. She is unable to leave Hotel Del Luna until she sees the last seed of her former family dry up.
However, a certain incident involving Choi Seo Hee from 42 years ago was mentioned in episode 4. Ji Hyun Joong had asked, “This year will pass without trouble, won’t it?” to which Kim Sun Bi replied, “If what happened 42 years ago happens again, Madam Choi will really be pulled to the afterlife.”
Ji Hyun Joong has been working as Hotel Del Luna’s doorman for 70 years after dying in the Korean War. He has a sister who is still alive, so he waits at the Hotel Del Luna so that he can go into the afterlife together with her when she dies. However, while playing piano with Yoo Na (played by gugudan‘sMina) in episode 6, he broke down into tears from being reminded of his happiest days with his sister. Ji Hyun Joong drew attention for revealing a deep pain behind his bright smile and playful nature.
A producer said about the characters, “Apart from just Man Wol and Chan Sung, the backstories of these three characters are another charm of the drama. As the story progresses, the characters that make up the center of Hotel Del Luna will become more real. Please look forward to the drama to see whether these characters will be able to rid themselves of their deep-seated grudges.”
“Hotel Del Luna” airs every Saturday and Sunday at 9 p.m. KST.

Watch: “Doctor John” Cast Is Detailed And Professional In New Behind-The-Scenes Video
On July 2, SBS uploaded a new behind-the-scenes video of their main cast of the upcoming drama, “Doctor John.”
“Doctor John” stars Ji Sung, Lee Se Young, and Lee Kyu Hyung, and tells the story of doctors who try to uncover the unknown causes of pain that their chronically ill patients experience.
The video begins with Ji Sung, who looks daringly into the camera as he takes his photos as doctor Cha Yo Han. His character is a highly skilled anesthesiologist and pain management doctor. The cast utilizes smog, glass, and water to enhance their shoot, and they are all sure to meticulously monitor their photos.
Next up is Lee Se Young, who plays empathetic resident Kang Si Young. Lee Se Young poses with a lively but warm gaze, and a light smile. Although feeling a little awkward, as it is her first time in a doctor’s lab coat, the actress fits the look perfectly and she is able to overcome any nervousness. Once again proving her professionalism, Lee Se Young consistently discusses the concept of the shoot with the staff.
Lee Kyu Hyung looks fierce and powerful during his shoot as he transforms into fundamental inspector Son Seok Gi. As he smirks into the camera, the actor hilariously takes a break from shooting to comment, “My smile looks so rotten.”
“Doctor John” premieres on July 19 at 10 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki!
