Notice: Hong Gil Dong postponed to next week
Quick update: In case you’re expecting Hong Gil Dong‘s Episode 22 today… you’ll have to wait. Apparently there’s a baseball game (a qualifying round for the Beijing Olympics) between Korea and Canada. With sports taking up the timeslot, Hong Gil Dong gets pushed to next week.
That begs the question of what will happen to the broadcast schedule with the series so close to its finale. (It’s awkward to finish the series on a Wednesday and then start a new series on Thursday, which throws the new series off as well.) When Que Sera Sera was similarly thrown off pace from a sports match, they added an extra episode to even things out, but that was early in the series and the writers had a chance to prepare for the ending. But with only three episodes remaining, there’s a greater probability that Hong Gil Dong will whip up a “special” (behind-the-scenes stuff) to air after the finale. But nothing confirmed yet.
In any case, the finale airs not on the 20th as previously scheduled, but on the 26th. Three Dads, One Mom (Eugene, Jae Hee, Jo Hyun Jae) premieres the following week, on April 2.
