Lee Yi Kyung confirmed for 2nd season of "Waikiki"



On January 8, HB Entertainment officially announced, “After appearing on Season 1 of ‘Waikiki,’ actor Lee Yi Kyung has been confirmed to appear on Season 2 as well.”

The agency went on, “In Season 1, [Lee Yi Kyung] showed a wide variety of unique and different qualities through his portrayal of a character that was both comical and sincere. Accordingly, he will display many charms in Season 2 as well, without giving viewers a single chance to get bored. We ask that you look forward to it.”

Lee Yi Kyung will be reprising his role from the first season of “Waikiki,” in which he starred as Lee Joon Gi, a seemingly carefree struggling actor with hidden emotional wounds. Despite being an accident-prone troublemaker, the lovable Lee Joon Gi proved impossible to hate. The role also gave Lee Yi Kyung a chance to show off both his skillful comic acting and a more serious, emotional performance as he portrayed the secret pain hidden behind Lee Joon Gi’s lighthearted smile.

Ahn So Hee, Kim Seon Ho, Kang Han Na, Shin Hyun Soo, and Moon Ga Young are currently in talks to appear in the upcoming season as well. The second season of “Waikiki” is scheduled to premiere sometime in the first half of 2019.
