In JTBC's 'Sea of Hope', the cast members will be inviting customers to a romantic seaside cafe and bar, with delicious meals served by chef Lee Ji Ah, beverages crafted by bartender Lee Dong Wook, and desserts baked by Onew. Customers will be able to not only enjoy good food, drinks, and a great ocean view, but also hear live performances by the music team, including Yoon Jong Shin, Suhyun, Onew, and more.
During the first episode of 'Sea of Hope' aired on June 29, the cast members greeted one another for the first time after receiving their respective tasks and duties.
