[Drama 2019] Hotel Del Luna, 호텔 델루나

Recommended Posts

@lollyminx & @brielover I like your takes on the chemistry issue. I understand it more from Man Wol's side; she has a thousand years' worth of emotional baggage tied to falling in love (with the wrong guy) and I'm sure she's come across a lot of attractive men during that time, but the last thing she'd want is to get romantic with anyone. I don't agree with the comments that they have no chemistry at all, but I wonder if YJG could have played some "I know this is all absurd but I find you really hot/attractive in this moment" facial expressions here and there, even from the start. I mean the Rumpelstiltskin his dad warned him about turned out to be a really hot woman. And yes there are a lot of ghosts involved and she's his boss, but she's really hot. :lol: And of course he gets to know her and grows to actually care about her, yadda yadda he falls in love. Idk, I could see it being played like that. But I am very happy with their adorableness together. I hope there's a lot more in store tonight and tomorrow! (They promised us!)

 

Also, I can't believe I didn't make the connection before until I read a comment on Dramabeans: Man Wol gave up watching Kim Joon Hyun because he reminded her of Chansung now (going to restaurants KJH ate in with Chansung, Chansung getting his autograph, etc). Awww.

Not yet, I think. It's kinda annoying (a little) that he's not playing along. Hahaha 

 

Maybe they're too busy making out inside a broom closet to bother with their IGs. (Man Wol and Chansung I mean, not the actors!) Ohoho.

In the new stills of the upcoming episodes, is MW whispering, "Chan-sungah, you look really sexy in a suit" or something? :w00t:

 

"Chansung, you look really sexy in that suit...but you look even better out of it." :lol:

I completely agree. I think it is a directional choice to keep things chaste. And I would be ok if they keep things that way. These characters' main conflict is not romance, but life, death and the frustrating games of gods, even with the humor, the levity of the situation is always around the scenes of MW and CS.  I am also not sure if highly passionate scenes would age well, and this show has a potential to be a classic.

 

Can we just all pray for another IU-YJG show where they can showcase sizzling erotic scenes. I'm probably alone, but I want to keep hotel del luna sweet, innocent and sincere.

I agree.

I think slow burn is best and no unnecessary bed scenes please.

I love the tension sizzle and progression into the bedroom seems to be not a MW or CS thing to do.

About Moon Flower Tree 

ECGnVTTUcAE3lEv?format=jpg&name=small

 

Similar to cherry blossom flower

images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQhKeOjm9TFrAXXkzp4wzLkgazIAb64qvdFGgtZRslIxlXJawBo4w

 

Cherry Blossoms

 

-They are symbolic flowers of the spring, a time of renewal, and the fleeting nature of life. Their life is very short. After their beauty peaks around two weeks *** , the blossoms start to fall.

-In China, it signifies love and the female mystique (beauty, strength and sexuality)

-In Japan, it represents the fragility and the beauty of life. It's a reminder that life is almost overwhelmingly beautiful but that it is also tragically short. When the cherry blossom trees bloom for a short time each year in brilliant force, they serve as a visual reminder of how precious and how precarious life is.  (brilliance, fragility and transience of life)

- Symbolized as an omen of good fortune, an emblem of love and affection

- Symbolizes hope and humanity

 

*** Speaking of two weeks,  next two weeks are the last four episodes of Hotel Del Luna.

The last 2 episodes are on August 31 and September 1,  which  August 2019's 2nd super new moon occurs. 

     -  super moon is a phenomenon which the moon is closer to earth than usual. a new moon is the 1st phase of the moon (lunar phase) , thus super new moon is the new moon that is closer to earth.

     -  the super new moon will occur on August 30 - September 2. (the last super new moon occurred in August 1-4 2019)

     -  this super new moon is the closest new moon to earth of the year 2019.

     -  new moon symbolizes new beginnings

 

 

About ChanSung's three friends, they all have in common.

Their names are related to Latin words or Latin origins.

 

Sanchez - is a patronymic surname meaning "son of Sancto," derived from the popular medieval given name Sancho, meaning "sanctified," (holy, anointed, blessed) from the Latin sanctus.    [thoughtco]

 

MiRa - In the Romance languages, it is related to the Latin words for "wonder" and "wonderful."  [wiki]

 

Veronica - the Latin transliteration of the Greek name "Berenice"  (Ancient Macedonian form of the Attic Greek name Φερενίκη (Pherenikē), which meant "bearer of victory" from Ancient Greekφέρω (pherō), meaning 'to bear', and νίκη (nikē), meaning 'victory'.   [wiki]

There's a festival in my city right now and I'm supposed to go out with my friends and have fun but I remember about the "secret office romance" my anticipation went to so high and I don't wanna be late to the hype. So I decided not to go and stay in the house instead to livestream I really hope they do it right tonight :lol:B)

I haven't been back on these forums in a loooong time.  Mostly because there seemed to be like a dry spell of quality Korean dramas for me.  But I was so excited to hear the Hong sisters were on this drama, and they always make some AMAZING stuff. 

 

I hate horror, but I was instantly sucked into this drama.  I do jump sometimes at some of the images, but they're not so skin-crawling that I can't bear through it.

 

The cinematography is gorgeous.  I think my favorite episode so far:

Spoiler

Is the one where the deceased bride-to-be forces her fiance to keep living and cuts that red thread.  I was so moved by the way those scenes were shot.  I really liked how impactful it was.

 

On TOTAL withdrawal though.  I have soooo many unanswered questions, and this is one of those dramas I can't stop watching, but I also wish I hadn't tried it until it was completely done, because I want to know how it ends, haha.  Patience with Korean dramas has never been my strong suit, especially when I find the story super addicting.

 

Haven't really had a chance to follow all the discussion, and it's going to take me AGES to go through all these pages, but anyone else wondering the same things I am, by any chance?

Spoiler

1. I'm reminded of other dramas where characters are reincarnated in the next life.  Sometimes they look the same, sometimes they don't, but it is interesting to see how each drama does it.  In this case, I am wondering what the planned purpose is for the reincarnations.  My guess is redemption, but I'm curious to see if there might be anything else.

 

2. On that note, I am wondering if there will be more interactions between JMW and the reincarnated YW, and if YW will be given a chance to remember or at least build a new sibling-esque relationship with JMW as before.  Of course, that's probably just wishful thinking on my part.

 

3. Again, with all the reincarnations being revealed, the whole thing about JMW waiting for KCM, and the tree, it has me wondering if perhaps KCS is KCM reincarnated, but for some reason he's the only one that looks different? 

 

4. Alternatively, wondering if perhaps KCM was already vanquished by that one death god that seems to go after malicious lingering spirits, or if the other god of death has already seen him off to the other side.

 

5. Also wondering—and I've probably missed something—why KCM betrayed JMW the way he did, allowed YW to get hanged, when he knew how important YW was to JMW, and how things got so entangled with the princess. 

 

6. Additionally, I know I definitely missed something here, but when did YW and the princess become briefly involved?  I can't remember the exact details of that encounter. 

 

7. Lastly, what's up with the serial killer?  Is he another reincarnated character?  I know I've probably missed that detail somewhere too. 

 

If someone could provide a quick recap or point to specific episodes I can go back and watch for #6 and #7, I'd be really grateful.  On the edge of my seat for the next two episodes this weekend!

The parallelism :

ManWol sees 4th MaGo, who wants to vanish her.

ChanSung meets JiWon, who wants to kill him.

Yeah a little, but the stories were also interesting like what happened to Sanchez. The story of the other manager was a little... maybe unnecessary or took too long? I don't know, though without the subs, I'm not entirely sure what happened there. 

 

I'm getting nervous because it's the 12th episode tomorrow. I just don't like them to be cramming everything towards the final 2 episodes or something, and it seems like that's what's going to happen. Urgh... I hope they don't rush it and tie everything up nicely.
