TVING and CJ Entertainment have paired up to bring Korean drama lovers a special ending to the year 2021.
Last year, 2020 was not the best year for anybody, but despite the continuous rampaging of the coronavirus, 2021 came as a year to redeem 2020. From the exciting “Vincenzo” to the hilarious “Mr Queen” to the psychological “Nevertheless” and the popular mind-blowing “Squid Game,” 2021 has been a year of Kdrama thrills.
The Korean hit series “Squid Game” took the world by surprise. Our Cassano Family in “Vincenzo” gave the world love for mafias whose name is Song Joong Ki. Our new tough couple Han Hyo Joo and Park Hyung Sik was formed in the hit Kdrama “Happiness” and we discovered so many rising actors and actresses that flourished in dramas and movies.
2021 started with Song Joong Ki and Jeon Yeo Been alongside their worldwide hit drama, “Vincenzo” and we are happy to end with the star-studded cast of the year’s anticipated drama “A Year-End Medley”.
“A Year-End Medley” (also known as “Happy New Year”) features Lee Dong Wook, Lim Yoona, Lee Kwang Soo, Seo Kang Joon, Lee Jin Wook, Kang Ha Neul, Won Ji A, Han Ji Min, Lee Jin Wook and so much more.
The drama talks about the different stories of people with unique problems and perspectives. These different people find themselves in The Emross Hotel.
Lee Dong Wook plays the role of Yong-Jin, The Emross Hotel’s CEO. Yong-Jin is a young man with an obsession with even numbers. Han Ji Min plays So-Jin, the hotel’s manager. She is good at her job but does not have the same confidence in her personal life. She has held a crush on her male friend for 15 years but holds herself from telling him how she feels. The hotel’s staff includes a young woman (Lim Yoon-A), a new employee (Won Jin-A) and a female door porter (Lee Hye-Young).
The guests include a young man (Kang Ha-Neul), who came to the hotel to get a job. For 5 years, he prepared for the exam to become a public officer but failed the exam. Even his girlfriend has left him. A singer-songwriter/radio DJ (Seo Kang-joon) is quite popular now, but he went through difficult times as an unpopular singer-songwriter. A manager (Lee Kwang-Soo) works for a popular artist. He and the artist went through hard times, but his client has finally found success. Their contract is set to expire soon. A large management company is trying to sign away his client, but the manager is unable to do anything about that.
