Hotel del Luna (Korean호텔 델루나; RRHotel delluna) is a 2019 South Korean television series, starring Lee Ji-eun and Yeo Jin-goo as the owner and manager, respectively, of the eponymous hotel that caters only to ghosts. Produced by GTist, written by the Hong sisters and directed by Oh Chung-hwan, it aired on tvN from July 13 to September 1, 2019.[2][3][4]

It was the most-viewed tvN drama of 2019 and is one of the highest-rated Korean dramas in cable television history.[5]


"Hotel del Luna" (previously known as "Guest House of the Moon") is not like any other hotel. A supernatural place, the hotel is not visible in its true form during the daytime and humans can only come across the hotel under special circumstances. Its staff and clients are all ghosts coming to terms with unfinished business in their former lives before they pass on to the afterlife and cycle of reincarnation;[6] the staff, in particular, have been there for decades or centuries as they have not settled their grudges. The exception to this is the hotel's general manager, which has been filled by a succession of human "passersby" since they need to interact normally with the real world in certain instances, like paying bills or fulfilling ghosts' requests with still-living relatives/friends.

Jang Man-wol (Lee Ji-eun) is the owner of this hotel, which is located in Myeong-dong, Seoul. Due to a huge sin committed more than a millennium ago, the hotel catering to the dead has been bound to her soul.

As a result of manipulation by the deity Mago (Seo Yi-sook), Jang Man-wol meets Gu Chan-sung's father (Oh Ji-ho) and makes a deal: in exchange for his life, his son will work for her 20 years later.

Desperate to save his son, the father takes Gu Chan-sung (Yeo Jin-goo) abroad. The young man grows up to be a sincere, level-headed perfectionist with a soft heart. He comes back to South Korea after his father's death, 21 years later to be an assistant manager at a multi-national hotel corporation, only to face Jang Man-wol, after which he ends up fulfilling the agreement and becomes the manager of Hotel del Luna.[7]

Through Gu Chan-sung, the mysteries and the secrets behind the hotel and its owner are revealed.

However, due to a deal his father made with Jang Man-wol twenty-one years earlier, Chan-sung is forced to become the general manager of Hotel del Luna. Being stoic and rational puts him at odds with Man-wol, particularly curbing her spendthrift and extortionist tendencies.[12]

1300 years in the past, Jang Man-wol travels the wilderness escorting a cart bearing a coffin. She encounters an old woman and explains that she's seeking a guest house that comforts the souls of the dead. The old woman knows the place, and Jang demands that she tell her how to find it. The old woman says that only the dead can go there — like the ghosts she sees following Jang. The woman vanishes and a large dead tree appears. A windstorm suddenly blows up and the debris it carries assemble into a large guest house. From a distance, the old woman, who is the deity Mago, announces that the Guest House of the Moon has a new owner. Mago brings the coffin to the Inn, followed by a swarm of fireflies.

In 1998, a young Gu Chan-sung and his impoverished father meet Mago in the guise of a flower seller. In front of them, the body of a murdered police officer, Detective Lee, is pulled from the river. Her ghost finds its way to the guest house, now the luxurious Hotel del Luna. Jang Man-wol is still the proprieter, now prosperous, and with a taste for champagne and luxuries. Most of the staff are ghosts who for their own reasons have not moved on to the next world. Later, Chan-sung's father, fleeing the police, falls down stairs, and his ghost also finds its way to the hotel. Not realizing his circumstances, he wanders the hotel, looking for a place to hide and contemplating robbing it. He's caught in the garden by Jang, who returns him to the living in exchange for his son in twenty years. The tree has blossoms for the first time. Detective Lee explains to Jang that she's not ready to move on to the next world until the person responsible for killing her is brought to justice. She digs a bullet out of her head and gives it to Jang. Later, Jang walks into an award ceremony with an ornate rifle over her shoulder. Only the mayor can see her. She shoots him with the ghost bullet. He's not harmed, but he begins to see the ghost of Detective Lee whose death he had ordered.

In the present day, Gu Chan-sung returns to Korea with a degree in hotel management and a Harvard MBA. He takes a job at a top hotel, but Jang finds him and tells him to work for her instead. He resists. Later he sees the ghost of an eyeless woman who begins to pursue him. Jang shows up and rescues him. The mayor, now a homeless vagabond, recognizes Jang and stabs her. As she lies on the street, she tells Chan-sung that this is his chance to walk away and be rid of her. Instead, he comes back with a cart to take her to a hospital. She reveals that she's not actually hurt, and that the mayor was a vengeful ghost whom she then destroys.

Mago appears, giving flowers to the recently dead as they begin their journey to the next world. The eyeless woman resumes following Chan-sung. The ghost of a tiger is haunting the city. Chan-sung visits the hotel where he meets the staff, including Mr. Noh, the current manager who is retiring. Jang explains that the hotel needs a human manager to deal with the human world. Jang and Chan-sung investigate the tiger, which was brought to the city by Chairman Wang of the hotel where Chan-sung currently works. Wang is in poor health and haunted by nightmares of the tiger. Jang and Chan-sung visit him and Jang offers to rid him of the tiger in exchange for a valuable painting of Baekdu Mountain. Chan-sung is put off by her averice.

Chan-sung meets Noh again, and over tea Noh explains that working at the hotel is worth it. Chan-sung realizes that Noh has died and he has been talking to his ghost. Noh returns to the hotel one more time, as a guest. He says his good-byes to Jang and the staff, and departs for the next life.

The chairman gives the painting to Jang; she uses it to give the ghost of the tiger a home. Chan-sung, having overcome his fear of the eyeless woman, brings her to the hotel and shows her that she doesn't need to be blind any more. The next evening, he is attacked by another vengeful ghost and is saved by Jang.

In a flashback, Jang is the leader of a group of bandits. The band robs a caravan belonging to Princess Song-hwa. She meets Go Chung-myung, the captain of the guard and they form a connection. In various flashbacks throughout the series, we see them falling in love.

Jang and Mago talk in the garden. After Jang leaves, Mago touches the tree and it blossoms again. She places the blossoms on Chan-sung as he sleeps, and he dreams of Jang when she was happy. Jang shows him the rest of the hotel, and he decides to stay. She smiles and he knows for sure she's the woman from his dream.

A teenage girl, Jung Soo-jung, falls to her death from a bridge. Her ghost posesses the body of Kim Yoo-na, the girl who killed her in a fight over a necklace. Kim's ghost comes to Chan-sung looking for help gettng her body back. Later, he accosts Jung in Kim's body and gets her side of the story. Jang visits Kim's parents and sells them the necklace so they can destroy it and cover up the murder. She warns them that destroying the necklace will destroy their daughter's soul. Not understanding, they destroy the necklace anyway, and Kim's soul turns to ash. Jung continues to live in Kim's body and assumes her identity.

Chan-sung worries about the eventual fate of Jang's soul. He tells her of his dream, and she recognizes it as true. Chan-sung wonders if she's stayed at the hotel for so long because she's waiting for someone.
44July 21, 2019 (2019-07-21)

Chan-sung touches the tree and it leafs out to Jang's amazement. She remembers Mago telling her that when the tree comes back to life, time will start flowing for her again. She becomes upset. She orders Chan-sung to go to sleep again to have another dream. Chan-sung wonders if he might be the man from the dream.

A bakery is visited by the eyeless ghost, causing a brief panic. Chan-sung's roommate Sanchez buys the bread and brings it home to tell Chan-sung the story. The ghost has followed the bread, and Chan-sung converses with her in front of Sanchez. Now that she can see, she wants to look at a baker who was so kind to her in life, but she will only recognize him by touching his hands.

The staff sees the tree and become concerned that it means that Jang will leave soon, and that they too may be required to take the bus to the afterlife.

Chan-sung helps the ghost find the baker. Jang tells Chan-sung that he missed something important: the thing that ghosts remember best is how they died. The eyeless ghost remembers that the baker is the one who killed her in a hit-and-run accident. She gets onto his motorcycle intending revenge. Chan-sung saves the baker and convinces the ghost not to take revenge. She goes to the next life and Chan-sung sees to it that the baker goes to jail.

Jang and the staff plot to get rid of Chan-sung to stop the tree from blooming. They consider Kim Yoo-na for his replacement. They decide to send Chan-sung to visit the ghost in room 13, the sight of whom will drive him mad. At the last moment, Jang appears and kisses Chan-sung to keep him from looking at the ghost. The kiss lingers.
55July 27, 2019 (2019-07-27)

A grieving couple perform a ritual that will find a groom for their dead daughter Lee Su-min. They send a red pouch off under a paper sky lantern. Whoever finds it will be tied to the dead bride's ghost. The ghost of Su-min doesn't want this, but can't stop them. She comes to the hotel for help.

Jang realizes Su-min's family is wealthy and offers to host the wedding at their expense.

Chan-sung looks for the red pouch to prevent some innocent stranger from finding it. Jang realizes that if he finds it, he will be the groom and goes to stop him. She arranges for Sanchez to find it instead. Sanchez finds it and discovers a red string tied to his hand leading off into the distance. He sees Su-min's ghost and faints. Jang explains that once the wedding is held, Su-min will move on to the afterlife and Sanchez will be fine.

Chan-sung goes to Mago for advice and meets two of her sisters. They agree that the wedding should proceed, but suggest that another ghost could be substituted for Sanchez. Chan-sung begins the search for a suitable groom. Su-min doesn't like any of the choices and instead gives the bag to Chan-sung.

Just before the wedding, Chan-sung has a vision: Jang from 1300 years ago, wearing a red wedding dress, blood dripping from her fingertips.

The third Mago sister appears with a gift for the bride.

Jang sends Kim Yoo-na to find the original groom. Yoo-na finds him in a hospital waiting room, tells him about the upcoming wedding, and offers to help him stop it. She brings him to the hotel. Chan-sung hands him the red bag and the string now ties him to Su-min. The wedding begins.

Jang explains that when the wedding is finished, the man will die and go to the afterlife with her. We learn that the grieving couple were the groom's parents, not the bride's. They tried to arrange for the ghost wedding to prevent Su-min from taking their son with her to the afterlife. The son is actually in a hospital, dying, and it was his soul that came to the hotel.

At the last moment, Su-min calls a halt to the wedding so that the groom may live. The wedding gift from Mago turns out to be a pair of scissors that can cut the string. In the hospital, the groom wakes up, tears in his eyes.

Lee Mi-ra, Chan-sung's ex girlfriend shows up. She is the reincarnation of Princess Song-hwa.

Jang asks the Grim Reaper why Mago is helping Chan-sung, and he responds that Mago is helping her, adding that he will be the one to see her off.

The ghost of a king arrives at the hotel and is given royal treatment. However Chan-sung becomes suspicious as nobody is entirely sure which king he was. The king turns out to be the actor Bang Tae-u, who died before he had the chance to play his greatest role. The actor who replaced him is not up to the part. Jang and Chan-sung arrange for Bang to briefly possess the younger actor, allowing him play the part perfectly, saving the younger actor's career and allowing Bang to move on to the next life.

Yoo-na and Hyun-joong spot a ghost in the back of a car on the freeway, signaling for help. They follow the car into the woods and encounter several more ghosts. They realize that they've discovered a serial killer. The next day, police are at the site, uncovering bodies. One of the police investigators, Park Young-soo, is the reincarnation of Yeon-woo.

Chan-sung visits Mago and asks if she can help him find the hotel's new location. Instead, she offers him medicine which will take away his ability to see ghosts or the hotel. If he swallows it, he will be free of Jang and the hotel for good. He accepts the gift, but decides to think about it first.

Walking near the hotel's new location, Jang meets the guardian spirit of the local well. He shows interest in the hotel.

Chan-sung gets Jang on the phone and offers to come back. She hesitates, but refuses.

Chan-sung encounters the ghost of Chairman Wang who has recently died. Wang tells him that his company will pay a good price for the painting to use in a memorial. He expresses an interest in seeing the hotel. Chan-sung quickly agrees and follows Chairman Wang to find the hotel. Jang becomes angry when she finds out that the painting will fetch a good price with none of it going to her.

The guardian of the well appears at the hotel, and mistaking him for a ghost, Chan-sung invites him in. The village well dries up while the guardian refuses to leave the hotel, claiming that the villagers no longer care about the well, and he is unappreciated.

Sanchez and Mi-ra host a small school reunion. Seol Ji-won attends. He is the serial killer.

Jang asks Chan-sung why he came back. He tells her it's because she hesitated earlier when he offered to return. He knew that inside, she wanted him back.

Chan-sung solves the guardian's problem by bringing him to the spring in the garden at Chairman Wang's villa. Chan-sung throws the medicine into the spring too, to demonstrate his commitment to stay with Jang to the end.
1010August 11, 2019 (2019-08-11)

Chan-sung and the granddaughter begin to date and develop feelings for each other, but in the end Chan-sung tells her there's someone else.

Jang and Chan-sung investigate a ghost who is haunting the local library. Chan-sung discovers that it's his mother who had abandoned him as a baby. Jang brings Chan-sung's mother to the hotel and reinstates Chan-sung as manager so he can see her off to the next life. The hotel returns to its previous location.

Chan-sung and Jang meet in the garden. She admits that she wanted him to return. She wants him with her until she vanishes. He says he won't let that happen. He brushes a tear from her cheek and takes her in his arms. She returns the embrace. The tree blossoms.
1111August 17, 2019 (2019-08-17)

The staff see the tree and know they will have to leave soon. Later, a lone firefly is flying among the branches.

Young-soo and his team close in on the serial killer, but they have the wrong suspect. Yoo-na interviews the ghosts of the victims to attempt to track down the real killer. Meanwhile, Seol Ji-won is tracking Yoo-na.

Chan-sung meets Hwang Man-suk, a powerful politician. She asks him to take him to the hotel to meet with Jang. She explains that she was the manager of the hotel before Mr. Noh. The staff are thrilled to see her again. She asks Jang a favor: during a lunar eclipse, humans can see the hotel and see the ghosts inside if they enter. When Hwang was the manager, a newlywed couple came to the hotel to get out of the rain, and Jang let them stay the night. The child they conceived became successful and famous, and is now engaged to Hwang's daughter. Hwang would like them to stay in the hotel during the upcoming lunar eclipse for good luck. Jang agrees and the staff are excited to be having human guests.

Sanchez is looking forward to a visit from his girlfriend Veronica, and plans to propose when she arrives. He wants to propose at Hotel del Luna, but Chan-sung tells him it's not possible. On the night of the full moon, Veronica fails to appear, and Sanchez learns that she was in a serious accident. As Sanches rushes to leave, Chan-sung sees Veronica's ghost at the house. He convinces Sanchez to come to the hotel so he can see Veronica while the eclipse is still ongoing. They manage to say goodbye before the eclipse ends.

Yoo-na tracks Seol down and calls Chan-sung to tell him. He rushes to the location.

Blossoms begin to fall from the tree as Chan-sung finds himself face to face with Seol.
1212August 18, 2019 (2019-08-18)

Seol tries to kill Chan-sung and they struggle. Yoo-na returns to Seol's location to find it cordoned off with police tape. She calls the hotel and soon the hotel staff is frantic with the news that Chan-sung is dead. Chan-sung arrives in the lobby dazed but alive. Jang is shocked by how much she was worried. Chan-sung explains that he had alerted Park Young-soo before going, and Park had arrived just in time. Seol is in custody now. Jang returns from the pharmacy stocked up on first aid and tends to Chan-sung's injuries. She admits how worried she was.

Jang tells the story of how she was a young child dying in the wilderness and was found by a passing merchant. She was then taken in by Yeon-woo's mother and they grew up as brother and sister. She says she's never talked about her past before, and adds that maybe it's time for the flowers to fall.

Seol escapes and makes his way to the roof. Chan-sung goes up to speak to him. Seol jumps from the roof and immediately becomes an evil ghost so powerful that even Jang cannot destroy him.

Mago and the Grim Reaper contemplate the Moon Tree. Mago says that when the flowers fall, Jang can finally go to the afterlife, as well as the person who remained as a small light. We see the firefly flitting among the branches. They reveal that the firefly is Go Chung-myung, who turned back when Mago was escorting him to the afterlife and chose to remain behind to keep a promise to Jang.

In flashbacks, we learn that Go betrayed Jang and the bandits because it was the only way to save her life.

Sanchez returns from Veronica's funeral, not coping very well. Chan-sung is also having trouble coping with Sanchez's grief. Jang reminds him that he will have to be the one who sends her off, and if he can't tell her he'll be ok when the time comes, she'll be too scared. He tells her that he knows this is the price he will have to pay for staying by her side.

Jang tells Chan-sung that the flowers are falling and she's scared. The petals vanish before they reach the ground and she's afraid she too will vanish without a trace. He tells her he loves her. They kiss. Petals begin landing on the ground.

In the garden, the firefly waits in the tree. Chan-sung asks Jang if she is still waiting for Go Chung-myung to return. In flashbacks, we see the firefly staying near Jang over the centuries.

Su-jin begins to have a miscarriage. Her boyfriend's ghost begs Choe to get help, but she realizes that by standing by and doing nothing, she can see the Yun family finally ended. Jang suggests she go and watch. Upon seeing Su-jin's suffering, Choe's heart softens and she gets help. Later, she tells Chan-sung the story of how she and her daughter were cast out of the family and murdered for not bearing a son. As she died, she cursed the Yun family to die out. By saving Su-jin's child, she prevented the family from ending.

Jang is shocked to discover that Lee Mi-Ra and Park Young-soo are dating — someone she hated and someone she cared for. In a flashback, we see a sword fight between Jang and Go.

Ms Choe speaks with Chan-sung. She realizes that Chan-sung has brought people to Jang from past lives. She asks if Chan-sung is someone who knew Jang in a past life, but Chan-sung says no. Choe wonders why Mago chose Chan-sung.

Mago asks Jang if she will let Go pass by, adding that he's already here, by her side. Jang asks if Chan-sung is Go. Mago refuses to answer, but asks if he is, will Jang see him as the man she hates and vanish, or the man she loves and be saved? Mago gives Jang the ornament that Go had made for her but never was able to give her. It is covered in Go's blood and is ill-omened.

Chan-sung asks the Grim Reaper who the first guest of the hotel was. The Grim Reaper answers only that he has not yet escorted that guest to the afterlife.

Jang gives the ornament to Seol Ji-won's ghost, making him more powerful. She explains to Chan-sung and the Grim Reaper that she knows that Chan-sung is the reincarnation of Go, and since she can't bring herself to kill him, she will let Seol do it instead. She accepts that this will mean her destruction. She returns to the hotel and barricades herself in the garden. Mago in black appears.

Chan-sung goes to the second Mago sister to ask if it's really true that he is Go. She tells him no, and shows him the firefly, now trapped in a jar. She adds that he was the first guest at the Guest House of the Moon.

Chan-sung recovers the ornament from Seol and the Grim Reaper finally catches Seol. Chan-sung arrives in the garden in time to prevent Mago from destroying Jang.

Choe brings Seol to meet the ghosts of the people he murdered. She stands outside the door and his screams can be heard from inside.

Jang invites Lee Mi-ra and Park Young-soo to the hotel and Mr. Kim serves them drinks that will allow them to remember their past lives.

Mi-ra remembers herself as Princess Song-hwa telling Go that her father suspects him of being in league with the rebels and that he and everyone he knows will be executed. But if he captures the bandits, her father will no longer suspect him.

Park remembers his life as Yeon-woo and the day Go captured him. Go explains that he's doing this to save as many lives as he can from being executed. Yeon-woo tells Go to save Jang and to never tell her the truth.

In the garden, Mago tells Jang that Go was the first guest of the hotel and has always been there. Jang is not the only one who has been paying for her sins.

In a flashback, Jang swears to Go that she will kill him at all costs. He replies that to do that, she will have to stay alive. Later, he watches in shame as the bandits are executed.

Jang speaks Go Chung-myung's name for the first time in 1300 years, and he appears. They talk briefly. Jang says she has finally emptied herself, and there is no more need for him to stay. The ornament turns to ash, and Go becomes a firefly again. Mago tells Jang that she needs to send Go off to the afterlife; that will be her last punishment.

Hyun-joong finally tells Yoo-na that he will be leaving soon, once his sister dies.

Jang takes the limo to the afterlife with Go to see him off. She asks Chan-sung to wait for her.

A month later, life at the hotel continues normally, but Jang has not returned and the tree is dead once again. Hyun-joong speculates that this means she won't be coming back. The staff tells the Grim Reaper that they want Jang back. They're sure she won't leave Chan-sung behind. The Grim Reaper tells them that if she has set foot on the bridge to the afterlife, she might not remember him any more. We see Jang and Go slowly walking across the bridge together. She stops, he reaches out his hand to her, but she turns around and heads back.
1515August 31, 2019 (2019-08-31)

Mago's pharmacist aspect brews the wine that will be given to the next owner of the hotel. One key ingredient is missing. Mago sends Chan-sung 200 years into the past to retrieve it, warning him not to eat or drink anything there or he won't be able to return. Knowing that he might be able to see Jang again, and missing her badly, he agrees to go.

Chan-sung goes to the Joseon dynasty and visits "Man-wol Inn" and meets Jang and the staff. Jang has a gambling addiction. As punishment, the Mago who brings poverty visits every day and now Jang is nearly broke. The staff hopes that Chan-sung has come to be the new human steward. Chan-sung challenges Mago to a game of Go; if he wins, Mago will leave. Chan-sung wins, Mago leaves, and Chan-sung makes Jang sign a pledge to never gamble again. She invites him to stay on as steward. He seriously considers it as it will mean staying by her side, but in the end tells her he must go back to wait for someone he loves.

He returns and is greeted with the news that Jang has come back.

In a flashback, Hyun-joong is killed during the war by his best friend, Tae-seok. In remorse, Tae-seok takes on the responsibility of caring for Hyun-joong's sister and takes Hyun-joong's identity. Tae-seok becomes a respected doctor and does many good deeds in Hyun-joong's name.

The ghost of an author comes to the hotel. From him, Mr. Kim learns of a book about to be published about a scholar during the Joseon dynasty who was disgraced for writing lewd literature. Kim realizes that the book is about him.

Yoo-na steals the wine from Mago's pharmacy and asks Jang to drink it so she will remain the owner of the hotel and stay. After discussing it with Chan-sung, Jang decides not to drink it. She and Chan-sung confess their love for each other.
1616September 1, 2019 (2019-09-01)

In a flashback, we see Jang Man-wol as a small child, lost and on the verge of death in the woods. The Grim Reaper appears, and then Mago, who convinces him to give the child a bit more time. A passing merchant and his small son pass by. The son spots Jang and convinces his father to rescue her. The boy is Chan-sung in a previous life.

Mr. Kim nearly leaves for the afterlife due to his humiliation.

Mago tells Jang that the Guest House of the Moon will shut down at the next full moon.

Jang and Chan-sung prevent the book from being published and asks Kim to explain what really happened. Kim relates the story of his life in a small village. When not studying, he watched the lives of the local villagers. To pass the time, he wrote stories based on what he saw on the streets. Jang and Chan-sung are shocked to recognize the stories as some of the greatest literature in Korea; their unknown author being compared to Shakespeare. They are amazed to learn that Kim was the author. Unfortunately, writing stories about commoners was considered vulgar in his time and he died in disgrace.

Jang and Chan-sung convince the author to re-write the book to portray Kim as the author of the famous stories.

With the new book published, Kim announces that he's ready to go on to the afterlife and says his good-byes. After he leaves, Jang's reserve breaks and she sobs at her desk.

Choe meets Su-jin. Su-jin tells Choe that she intends to give the baby her own surname, not Yeongju Yun. Choe realizes that this means the family has finally ended.

Hyun-joong's sister dies. Hyun-joong brings her to the hotel and then they leave for the afterlife together. He has a last tearful goodbye with Yoo-na.

With the last guest gone, Choe also leaves for the afterlife.

Chan-sung asks Mago why she chose him. She responds that there is one last dream for him.

Jang walks the empty hotel one last time. She and Chan-sung spend one last evening together. They agree to meet again in their next lives no matter what. She leaves for the afterlife alone. Piece by piece, the hotel fades from existence.

The next winter, Chan-sung meets Yoo-na to catch up. She thanks him for the medicine he gave her so she no longer sees ghosts. She asks if he took the medicine too, but he doesn't answer.

Epilog: in another life, Kim, Choe, and Hyun-joong cross paths in a park, unaware that they knew each other in the past. Gu Chan-sung and Jang Man-wol are a happy couple.
