'Mystic Pop-up Bar' is a K-drama set to release on Netflix soon. The show will air in South Korea on JTBC and the literal title of the show is 'Ssanggab Cart Bar'. The show is based on a webtoon 'Ssanggabpocha' written by Bae Hye-Soo.
'Mystic Pop-up Bar' will be available to stream in the US from May 20. The episodes will air weekly twice on Wednesday and Thursday, on Netflix.
'Mystic Pop-up Bar' is a rooftop bar that opens only during the night. Wol-Joo (Hwang Jung-Eum) runs the mysterious food-bar cart and customers who visit the bar are not only alive but also consist of the dead. While drinking alcohol and eating dishes with Wol-joo, the customers of the bar talk about themselves and try to heal the wounds that they suffered over time.
Hwang Jung-eum - Wol-joo
Actor Jung-eum portrays the role of the bar owner Wol-joo who listens to the troubles of everyone who comes to her mysterious pop-up bar. Jung-eum is known for her work in series such as 'She Was Pretty', 'Kill Me, Heal Me', 'The Undateables' among others.

The 12-episode show is directed by Jeon Chang-Geun who has directed other projects such as 'The Package', 'What Happens to My Family?', 'My Bittersweet Life', among others.
The teaser of the show introduces us to the pop-up bar and its owner who selects different people every day to sit with her and have a drink. She seems to have some otherworldly effect on them and is a mysterious figure. We also see scenes that show the bar host in historic times as well. So would this be similar to IU's show 'Hotel Del Luna'? We would have to wait and see how the plot progresses.
