K-Drama Review Welcome to Waikiki

Welcome to Waikiki- A story of three men who come to run a failing guesthouse called Waikiki

Review Welcome to Waikiki

Eulachacha Waikiki (also known as Welcome to Waikiki or Laughter in Waikiki) is a comedy about three men that run a guesthouse who get involved with a single mother (Jung In Sun) and her baby. Dong Goo (Kim Jung Hyun) is a cynical man who dreams of being a movie director, Joon Ki (Lee Yi Kyung) is an actor who finds himself stuck in minor roles, and Doo Shik (Son Seung Won) is a struggling scriptwriter.

If you’re looking for a drama that is light, fun, and packed with hilarious comedy, Welcome to Waikiki is the answer! It’s the perfect break from all of those heavier dramas. But even in the midst of the fun, there is plenty of that heartwarming goodness to give you all the feels.

Main characters

Kim Jung Hyun is Kang Dong Goo, a cynical man who dreams of being a movie director. I loved how he would go from being a very straight forward almost humdrum kind of guy with a deadpan expression to being so animated with such a big cheesy grin. He ended up being such a fun character.

Lee Yi Kyung plays Lee Joon Ki, an actor who finds himself stuck in minor roles. And Lee Yi Kyung completely stole the show for me! This man is so talented, and I just continue to be amazed by him.

I’ve been loving him more and more with each passing role I see him in, but this drama was absolutely perfect for showcasing his amazing comedic abilities. He is just so spot on and full of charisma that I just couldn’t take my eyes off of him when he was on screen. He is just so endearingly funny, and he made me smile and laugh so much. Excellent job Lee Yi Kyung!

Son Seung Won is Bong Doo Shik, a scriptwriter having a difficult time. He’s a sweet guy who is a bit timid. His more reserved personality definitely made for some fun throughout the drama when he gets put in some very out of character scenarios.

We then have Jung In Sun as Han Yoon Ah. She’s a single mother struggling to get by and ends up staying at the guest house. She’s nice and soft-spoken, but she is quite a quirky character that tends to cause accidents and makes things difficult for those around her.

Go Won Hee is Dong Goo’s sister Kang Seo Jin. She’s loud and outspoken and won’t put up with any nonsense from the boys. This allows for some very fun bickering between her and them.

Then there is Dong Goo’s high maintenance ex-girlfriend Min Soo Ah (Lee Joo Woo). She lands at the guesthouse during difficult times which gives her a second chance and a new perspective on life.

And not to leave out one of the most adorable babies ever, we have Yoon Ah’s daughter Sol. She’s all kinds of cute and just brightens up each and every scene she is in. Seriously, she is too adorable!

Eulachacha Waikiki Review

Eulachacha Waikiki is such a feel-good drama. It is packed with comedy yet is also full of heartwarming and meaningful moments thanks to its wonderfully quirky and endearing characters.

Now, this is a very over the top and crazy in your face sort of comedy style. Don’t take things too seriously with this one. It’s laughing out loud funny and leaves you completely flabbergasted by what you just saw. The characters get into some completely ridiculous situations. And this is one of those cases where the more ridiculous the scenario the better!

Review Welcome to Waikiki

Although I chuckle a lot during dramas, there are very few that I consider true comedies that make me laugh out loud from start to finish. Eulachacha Waikiki has joined the ranks of those precious few dramas that genuinely make me laugh (for those who are curious, the others Modern Farmer, Shopping King Louie, and My Girlfriend is a Gumiho). Also, if you enjoy this kind of comedy combined with quirky and lovable characters, definitely go check out another drama from this writer, Modern Farmer, because it is just as fantastic!

The drama is then able to immediately flip from extreme comedy to such tender moments where you really feel for the characters. This isn’t a show with a big plot, but it has some nice little character and relationship journeys to enjoy.

Review Welcome to Waikiki

This show brought so many smiles to my face and just made for such a fun time. I grew so attached to the Waikiki Guesthouse family. This is the kind of show that I would absolutely love to get a season 2. I could watch these characters get into all kinds of crazy trouble again and again. And I would continue to enjoy every single minute of it!
