JTBC’s highly-anticipated comedy drama “Welcome to Waikiki 2” will be premiering soon!
The drama follows a young group of men and women at a guest house named Waikiki as they deal with the hardships of life in the brightest and most cheerful way possible. Following the first season that received lots of love for its relatable and entertaining story, the second season will show the crazy antics of the main characters as they try to get through their lives.
Here are three things to look out for when watching the drama:
Superb acting skills
Several gems were discovered through the first season of “Welcome to Waikiki,” which is why the the expectations are high for the new cast members of the second season. Lee Yi Kyung will continue to play the funny yet slightly pitiful Lee Joon Ki, while Kim Seon Howill play Cha Woo Shik, an unsuccessful idol who aspires to be a singer again. Shin Hyun Soo will represent all of the problems of youth as Kook Ki Bong, a man with a pure mind and soul. Playing everyone’s first love Han Soo Yeon is Moon Ga Young, and Ahn So Hee will play Kim Jung Eun, Joon Ki’s old classmate and a master of part-time jobs. Lastly, Kim Ye Wonwill take on the role of Cha Woo Shik’s sister Cha Yoo Ri, who rules over everyone at Waikiki.
A dream production team
Producing director Lee Chang Min and writer Kim Ki Ho are referred to as the “Dream team of laughter,” as they’ve succeeded in drawing endless laughter from viewers of the show’s first season. Regarding the differences between the two seasons, PD Lee Chang Min said, “It’s similar to the first season in that it’ll be fun and easy to watch,” and the screenwriter shared, “It has a similar atmosphere with the first season, but this season is more comical, and the scale of the characters’ accidents and events has gotten much larger. Keep an eye out and look forward to the countless events that will fall on the three old high school classmates. The new characters are all young people having trouble solving problems in their lives, but they have the energy and passion to follow their dreams. I wanted to show how the positive energy of youth can overcome adversity.” Together, the “Dream team” assured that they will make people laugh uncontrollably and help rid them of stress.
The amazing cameo appearances from the first season will continue in the second season. Actors Park Sung Woong, Kim Seo Hyung, Lee Deok Hwa, Yoon Se Ah, and Kim Ki Hyunhelped make the previous season shine, and in the new season, Joo Sang Wook, Oh Na Ra, Lee Si Eon, Jung Man Sik, Moon Hee Kyung, and other skilled actors will make special appearances. It is worth looking forward to how these actors will interact with the main cast and make the drama even more enjoyable.
