Ryeoun has been revealed as the mystery man in “The Secret Romantic Guesthouse”!
SBS’s “The Secret Romantic Guesthouse,” based on the hit web novel of the same name, is a mystery romance drama about an unconventional boarding house and three students who stay there as lodgers. Shin Ye Eun plays Yoon Dan Oh, the owner of the boarding house Yihwawon, while Ryeoun, Kang Hoon, and Jung Gun Joo play three “flower scholars” who rent rooms while keeping their own secrets hidden.
Although Yoon Dan Oh and Kang San clashed at first, bickering at every opportunity, the two eventually began to develop romantic feelings for one another while working together to find the dethroned crown prince Lee Seol.
Kang San was previously suspected of being a watchman protecting Lee Seol in Episode 8, which forced him to reveal himself as the missing dethroned crown prince who hid at Yihwawon.
In line with this reveal, the mystery man was revealed in the drama’s teaser poster, which was released in February. Shin Ye Eun was tightly embracing an unidentified man in the first poster, which cut off at his shoulders and thus obscured his face.
The full version of this special poster, revealing Ryeoun as the mystery man, has now been released by “The Secret Romantic Guesthouse.” The poster depicts Lee Seol and Yoon Dan Oh’s emotional embrace as they reunite years after first meeting at Yihwawon, where they were each other’s saviors.
Yoon Dan Oh and Lee Seol are wrapped in a tight hug, but their gazes do not meet. Yoon Dan Oh appears determined to keep her tears at bay, whereas Lee Seol’s expression is sad, soft, and charismatic all at the same time. Their embrace symbolizes their determination to protect one another, foreshadowing the difficult future that awaits them.
With a dangerous journey ahead, it’s unclear how these two will protect each other and their relationship now that Yoon Dan Oh is the only one who knows Kang San’s true identity as Lee Yeol.
“The Secret Romantic Guesthouse” producers stated, “The special poster completes a sensuous cut of Yoon Dan Oh and Lee Seol’s petal-like heart-fluttering and dire feelings for each other.” After the reveal of Lee Seol’s identity, which is the drama’s axis of reversal, a special poster representing the official start of part two has been released.” The production team also expressed their desire for viewers to enjoy watching the remaining episodes while guessing about the upcoming stories.
“The Secret Romantic Guesthouse” Episode 10 will air on April 18 at 10 p.m. KST.
