If you’ve wondered what happened to the SBS drama Lobbyist, aka
The Most Ridiculously Expensive Kdrama Ever:
“Lobbyist” Postponement Actually Because of Subject of Arms Dealing
SBS judges topic inappropriate during South-North Korean summit talks
In a special news flash, SBS’s drama Lobbyist, scheduled to premiere on October 3, was suddenly postponed to the 10th because of the South-North Korea summit talks. However, the bigger reason is that the content of the first two episodes of the drama runs counter to the intent of the summit talks.
The first two episodes of Lobbyist dramatize the Gangneung incident* of 1996. In the story, Harry (Song Il Guk’s character) loses his father during an effort on the East Sea to stamp out weapons trade from the North. As a result of losing both parents at a young age, the orphaned Harry and his younger sister leave for America with their aunt. …
* The Gangneung incident of September 1996 was an infiltration of North Korean spies that resulted in the deaths of at least seven (South Korean) military and four civilians.
As a result, the drama will air on the 10th and 11th (Wednesday and Thursday), but with two episodes each night, to catch up to the original schedule.
