Lee Junho And YoonA’s Upcoming Drama Confirms Supporting Cast And Broadcast Plans



2PM’s Lee Junho and Girls’ Generation’s YoonA’s upcoming JTBC drama “King the Land” (literal title) shared more updates on the drama’s supporting cast and broadcast schedule!


“King the Land” is about a chaebol heir named Goo Won (Lee Junho) who cannot stand fake smiles. He meets Cheon Sa Rang (YoonA) who is always equipped with a bright smile even when she does not want to due to the nature of her profession, and together, the two set out to find happy days in which they can sincerely smile brightly together. King the Land refers to a VVIP business lounge, which is a place of dreams for hoteliers.


Lee Junho will play Goo Won, the son of King Group who has a brilliant mind, innate grace, and captivating charm. Having no memory of his mother who suddenly disappeared, Goo Won enters King Hotel and meets employee Cheon Sa Rang who is the complete opposite of him and clashes with her at every turn. Already, viewers are highly anticipating Lee Junho’s next transformation.


YoonA will take on the role of King Hotel’s “Smile Queen” Cheon Sa Rang. With her lovely smile and flawless customer service, she ascended from her position at the lobby’s information desk to King the Land, which is a dream location for hoteliers. Cheon Sa Rang dreams of becoming a hotelier who makes people happy, but trouble starts brewing when King Hotel’s successor Goo Won makes an appearance. YoonA is drawing excitement for her role by already being greatly in sync with her character.


In addition to Lee Junho and YoonA, Go Won Hee will play Cheon Sa Rang’s friend and King Air’s flight attendant Oh Pyeong Hwa. Kim Ga Eun will play superwoman Kang Da Eul who is full of passion and the queen of making sales. As best friends and employees under the King Group, the actors raise anticipation for their upcoming chemistry.


Furthermore, Ahn Se Ha will take on the role of Goo Won’s secretary No Sang Sik. He became Goo Won’s secretary after entering King Group together at the same time with Goo Won. Rising star Kim Jae Won will take on the role of King Air’s handsome junior colleague Lee Ro Woon, portraying an exciting work and love life.


Regarding the upcoming drama, Lee Junho remarked, “I’m highly looking forward to greeting everyone with a new side of myself. I will work harder to prepare on set to be able to convey enjoyable energy, so please show lots of interest and love for ‘King the Land.'”


YoonA also commented, “I’m happy to be able to greet [viewers] after meeting such amazing actors, director, and scriptwriter. I am simultaneously nervous and excited ahead of our first start. I will work hard to deliver a refreshing and happy drama to viewers.”

Haha yes I will watch. The chaebol theme is my favourite although the earlier teaser I saw, the mL doesn’t show enough arrogance and dominance! 😂


I didn't know you like the chaebol trope. LOL!


@mademoiselle It depends on when this air. If it's on the weekend, it's most likely I'll watch it. If it's on the weekdays, there's no guarantee. :laugh:
