Welcome To Waikiki‘ fans! Are you ready?

JTBC drama ‘Welcome To Waikiki‘ is coming back with its second season, which promises to be funnier and wackier than the previous one. ‘Welcome To Waikiki 2‘ is scheduled to air in the first half of 2019 on Monday-Tuesday.

The first season of the drama concluded in April 2018, and told the story of three young men who ran a guesthouse called ‘Waikiki’, which is on the brink of shutting down. It gained popularity due to its realistic representation of the lives of people who lived in that guesthouse.

The new season confirmed its brand new cast lineup – Lee Yi Kyung, Kim Seon Ho, Shin Hyun Soo, Moon Ga Young, Ahn So Hee, and Kim Ye Won, all of whom were present for the script reading along with director Lee Chang Min, writer Kim Ki Ho, Song Ji Eun, Song Mi, and Seo Dong Bom, etc. The script reading took place at the JTBC  building in Sangam-dong, Seoul.

Lee Yi Kyung being the only actor who appeared in the first season, will be reprising his role as Lee Jun Ki. Before the script reading, he shared, “The director remined me of old memories when he greeted me by saying ‘You feel at home, right?’ I will work hard once again as Lee Jun Ki.”

Kim Seon Ho will play the character of Cha Woo Sik, who is an aspiring singer but is hard to please. He is cynical but also has a naive side to him. He shared, “I’m happily filming the drama and will continue to do so.”

Shin Hyun Soo will play the character of Kook Ki Bong, a once promising baseball player but now plays in a second-tier team.

Moon Ga Young will play the character of Han Soo Yeon, the Waikiki guys’ first love who eventually starts living with them due to an unfortunate event. She also promised to work hard.

Ahn So Hee is returning to the small screen after three years as Kim Jung Eun, a college friend of Lee Jun Ki who is willing to take any job to support herself financially.

Lastly, Kim Ye Won will play the character of Cha Yu Ri, Cha Woo Sik’s older sister. The actress said, “As it’s a fun drama, I will happily film till the end.”

Make sure to catch the second season of the drama on JTBC once it airs!
