Hotels in K-Dramaland are not only used for a (longer) overnight stay. Some people live there and other go there to party, to have dinner, or have a drink (or rather too many) at the hotel’s bar. Usually weddings are also held in the wedding reception hall of hotels.

Rich people in K-Dramaland generally stay in high-end hotels and book the suite room. In general, hotels should be booked in advance because they will usually only have one room with a single bed available otherwise. People are thus quite often forced in K-Dramaland to share a bed without being in a love relationship. Another situation that happens quite often in K-Dramaland is that (usually because of too much drinking) two people of the opposite sex will wake up in the same hotel bed and do not know how they ended up there neither if “something” happened during the night spend together.
