Kang Dong-Goo (Kim Jung-Hyun) dreams of becoming a movie director, but he is cynical due to bad luck. Cheon Joon-Ki (Lee Yi-Kyung) wanted to follow in his father’s footsteps and become an actor, but he is now just a minor actor. Bong-Doo-Sik (Son Seung-Won) came to Seoul to become a scenario writer, but things have not been easy for him.
These 3 men run the guest house Waikiki in Itaewon, South Korea. Their guest house is facing bankruptcy and then a mysterious baby and single mother appear at Waikiki.
Laughter in Waikiki makes me hihihi. I am not exaggerating, but the comedy element in this drama is definitely at its best. From start, I was grinning and crying from too much laughing, it has been my momentary aide from stress and bad moods.
I liked the story, not just the comedy but the ordinary life they were trying to portray. Though it is not that deep to ponder, still it touches everyone’s issue how to have dreams and achieve it while struggling to be a better person both of their personal and professional lives. It feels like everyone changed without losing themselves. I would say the chemistry between the entire cast is a splendid plus with the most adorable baby (Sol).
The finale wrapped up with positivity. With no huge story twist, the sense of the characters and the quality of humor was maintained. Thank you Waikiki for the laughter!
