MBC buys some time with one-act dramas
When scheduling its new Wednesday-Thursday drama Me Too, Flower, MBC had left one week of a gap between Flower’s premiere and end of Can’t Lose. I’d been wondering what they’d use to fill that time, and turns out they’ve slotted in a few one-act specials (both of which have previously aired) as a stopgap.
I suspect that MBC was really hoping that the Can’t Lose extension would run longer, because with Me Too, Flower held back by a last-minute hero switch, it just wasn’t going to be ready to make a premiere right away. But this begs the question: Why not buy another week, then? Yoon Shi-yoon only JUST joined filming this week; I’m sure the show could use more time.
As for the programming itself:
First up is a one-act drama called It’s Me, Grandma, which stars two wonderful actresses, veteran Na Mun-hee (Believe in Love) and rising child/teen actor Nam Ji-hyun (Queen Seon-deok, Giant). It originally aired in September 2010, and rebroadcasts next Wednesday, October 26.
Jo Eun-ji’s Family originally aired in October 2010 and stars Lee Hye-eun (Grand Prix) and Ahn Nae-sang (High Kick 3). It airs next Thursday, October 27.
Me Too, Flower! premieres the week after, on November 2.
