EXID’s Hani‘s upcoming drama has officially set its premiere date!
On November 29, MBC announced that it would be airing Hani’s new drama “XX” (literal title), which will also be released on multiple streaming platforms online, starting this January.
“XX,” which will be jointly produced by MBC and Playlist, tells the story of a speakeasy bar that is accessible only to those in the know. Hani will star as head bartender Yoon Nana, while actress Hwang Seung Eon will play the privileged Lee Rumi, who has a love-hate relationship with Yoon Nana.
Additionally, MBC announced that it would also be airing Playlist’s popular web drama “The Best Ending” starting on January 10.
MBC and Playlist remarked, “We came to the decision to air ‘The Best Ending’ and the new drama ‘XX’ on television in order to break down the wall between TV and web dramas, so that viewers can enjoy dramas anywhere.”
They added, “Both dramas will be relatable to anyone who has ever been in love, and ‘XX’ in particular will also give viewers the chance to vicariously experience the thrill of revenge. It’s a drama that will be enjoyable for everyone.”
Following a special Naver V Original pre-release on January 22, “XX” will premiere on MBC on January 24 at 12:50 a.m. KST. The drama will also be available online on YouTube and Facebook starting on January 29.
