Lee Se Young and Na In Woo will be starring in a new drama together!

On June 13, it was officially announced that Lee Se Young and Na In Woo will star in the new drama “Motel California” (literal title). The 12-episode long drama is slated to air in 2025 via MBC.

“Motel California” is a romance drama written by Lee Seo Yoon and directed by Jang Joon Ho and Kim Hyung Min. It is based on Shim Yoon Seo’s 2019 novel “Home, Bitter Home” (literal title). The story follows a woman who grows up in a rural motel called “Motel California.” After escaping her hometown, she returns 12 years later to reconnect with her first love and face new challenges.

Lee Se Young will star as Ji Kang Hee who was raised in a motel run by her father which is essentially her home. She is of mixed race, with a father and a mother of mixed heritage. Because of her background, she faces many challenges and emotional wounds growing up. She falls in love with her childhood friend Cheon Yeon Soo but leaves everyone behind and moves to Seoul on her 20th birthday. Kang Hee becomes an interior designer. 12 years later, as she reaches the peak of her career, she is forced to return to her hometown and reconnects with her first love.

Meanwhile, Na In Woo will star as Cheon Yeon Soo, a character who experiences a destined romance with Ji Kang Hee. Yeon Soo is a devoted man who loves only one woman his entire life. He works as a veterinarian and is the focus of attention among all the farmers in his rural village. The farmers constantly try to set Yeon Soo up with potential brides, bombarding him with matchmaking offers day and night. To dodge their relentless efforts, he allows a false rumor to circulate that he is in a serious relationship with a fellow veterinarian. In the midst of this pretense, his first love Kang Hee reenters his life. Misunderstanding the situation, Kang Hee believes Yeon Soo has a girlfriend, causing tension and conflict between them.

The production team commented, “We’ve captured the nostalgic and tender emotions of everyone’s first love in a delightful and twist-filled storyline.” They added, “Lee Se Young and Na In Woo are highly regarded actors. Their pairing is refreshing, and viewers can expect an exciting new youth romance drama.”

“Motel California” is set to begin full-scale production with the goal of airing in 2025.
