Hotel King is a Korean drama or K-drama series produced by MBC in 2014. The show stars Lee Da-hae as Ah Mo-ne, Lee Dong-wook as Cha Jae-wan, a former army officer and the current general manager of the hotel, and Kim Sun-young as Baek Mi-nyeo. The story of Hotel King is set in a luxurious hotel named Ciel, which is owned by the powerful and wealthy Ah Sung Group. The patriarch of the Ah Sung Group, Ah Sung-won, is a ruthless businessman who built his empire by committing various illegal activities. He is also the father of Ah Mo-ne, the hotel's heiress who has never known true love and has been living a sheltered life.

Cha Jae-wan, who was abandoned by his mother at a young age, grew up in an orphanage and became a soldier to make a better life for himself. He then worked his way up to become the general manager of Ciel, and he has a deep-seated hatred towards the Ah Sung Group because of the way they treated his mother.

The story of Hotel King revolves around the power struggle between Ah Sung-won and Cha Jae-wan, who is determined to take down the corrupt conglomerate. However, their animosity takes a backseat with the arrival of Ah Mo-ne, who falls in love with Cha Jae-wan despite their different backgrounds and the fact that he is her father's enemy.

The show also features a supporting cast of hotel staff and guests, each with their own personal stories and struggles. They include Baek Mi-nyeo, the hotel's head housekeeper who has a dark secret of her own, and Roman Lee, a famous chef who was once engaged to Ah Mo-ne but left her to pursue his dreams.

The show's production design is one of its biggest strengths, with the luxurious and grandiose Ciel hotel serving as a stunning backdrop for the story. The show also boasts an impressive soundtrack, with several original songs composed by renowned Korean singer and songwriter Yoon Jong-shin.

Hotel King tackles various themes such as power, love, family, and revenge. It explores the consequences of greed and corruption, as well as the importance of forgiveness and redemption.

Lee Da-hae gives a standout performance as Ah Mo-ne, bringing to life the character's complexity and vulnerability. She shows a range of emotions, from her icy facade as the hotel heiress to her moments of genuine warmth and affection towards Cha Jae-wan.

Lee Dong-wook also delivers a compelling portrayal of Cha Jae-wan, who is driven by his personal vendetta but also struggles with his growing feelings for Ah Mo-ne. His brooding charisma and intense gaze add to the character's appeal.

Kim Sun-young shines as Baek Mi-nyeo, the hotel's head housekeeper who has a tragic past and a surprising connection to Cha Jae-wan. Her performance is nuanced and heartbreaking, as she navigates her loyalty to the hotel and her own personal demons.

Overall, Hotel King is a well-crafted Korean drama that will keep viewers on the edge of their seats with its gripping plot and engaging characters. It's a must-watch for fans of the genre and anyone who loves a good romance with a dash of intrigue and suspense.
