HD 217382 is a suspected binary star[8] system in the northern circumpolar constellation of Cepheus. It is faintly visible to the naked eye with an apparent visual magnitude of 4.70.[2] The distance to HD 217382 is around 319 light years, as determined from an annual parallax shift of 10.2152 mas. The system is moving further away with a heliocentric radial velocity of +2.6 km/s.[1] It is a candidate member of the Hyades supercluster and has a peculiar velocity of 9.2 km/s.[9]

The visible component of this system is an evolved K-type giant star with a stellar classification of K4 III.[3] It is a periodic variable with a frequency of a cycle every 10.64724 days and an amplitude of 0.0041 in magnitude.[3] The star has an estimated 37[4] times the radius of the Sun and is radiating 318[2] times the Sun's luminosity from its enlarged photosphere at an effective temperature of about 4,105 K.[5]
