tvN responded to the reports by stated, “Although it is true that ‘Hotel Del Luna’ has been tentatively set to air in the second half of 2019, we have not decided on the broadcast schedule yet. Also, no actors have been confirmed for any of the roles either.” They stated that though IU was offered the role, as previously reported in December 2018, a final decision on whether she will appear in the drama has not been made yet.

The story will revolve around an elite hotelier who becomes the owner of the hotel after a fateful incident and the elegant and beautiful, but ill-tempered hotel manager Jang Man Wol. The drama is already gaining attention as it will be penned by the Hong Sisters, who have created hits like “You’re Beautiful,” “My Girlfriend is a Gumiho,” “The Greatest Love,” “Master’s Sun,” and “Hwayugi.”
