My Secret Hotel has said its screenwriters are Kim Ye Ri and Kim Do Hyun, but it turns out writer Kim Ye Ri has passed away.
A rep from tvN My Secret Hotel′s production company Verdi Media commented on July 25, "Writer Kim Ye Ri was the one who first designed and wrote My Secret Hotel, but she passed away from cancer. Screenwriter Kim Do Hyun joined the team when Kim Ye Ri passed away after the drama secured a time slot."
"Episodes 1 to 4 were written by Kim Ye Ri. Kim Do Hyun will edit the episodes and write for the remaining episodes. The drama will run to episode 16," the rep said.
My Secret Hotel will air from August 18 after High Schooler King of Life concludes.
It is a mystery romance starring Yoo In Na and Jin Yi Han.
