Drama awards preemptions for King and School

Bad news for addicts: our Monday-Tuesday drama dosage will be greatly reduced next week, due to the end-of-year awards ceremonies scheduled to air in their time slots. Monday December 31 is the day for both KBS and SBS Drama Awards, and well, you can’t really air dramas while you’re trying to award dramas, can you? So sadly that means both King of Dramas and School 2013 will be skipping their Monday broadcasts, and will resume on Tuesday, January 1.

King of Dramas, because of its extension, will still have one episode left to air the following week, and has decided to add a special to end on an even count. So Episode 18 airs January 7, the special on January 8, and then its follow-up drama, Yawang, will premiere Monday January 14.

School 2013 hasn’t announced any plans to either extend or reduce their episode count, but they have time to figure that out since it’s still early on in the series. Preemptions are never a good thing for ratings momentum, but when you’re live-shooting dramas during the holiday season, sometimes a break is a godsend. Hopefully both shows get some much-needed sleep for cast and crew, and will return to their respective awesomeness by the new year.

Here, have some mind-blowing, character-breaking cuteness from the set of School to tide you over:

The only reason why I tolerate the delay for KOD: Time to write the final episode (if it's not good, then I fly to Seoul!) and some deserved rest for the cast.
Btw, I really need to know what the special will be about: BTS?, interviews?, Special New Year? Weddings galore? Parody by Big Bang? I'm going nuts with this show!

Yup, I'm curious too on what the special ep will be about! Maybe they'll show Kyeongseong Morning? Heehee

If it's about interviews, then I'd like to know what KMM do to prepare for this role.

The wait is killing me too! Each time waiting for a new episode is like waiting for exam results, or medical report...! My heart wants to explode! And this is an understatement!

While waiting for the next ep, I really really wish someone could Eng-sub the BTS vids! I so do want to know what they're talking about... sob sob sob

Lee Jong Seok and Kwak Jung Wook have been playing their roles ofGo Nam Soon and Oh Jung Ho so well that it is kind of weird to see them smiling and looking like, dare I says it...friends?!! It's really surprising to see Jung Wook smiling since his character never smiles like that. But that just says how good an actor he is; he is so immersed in his character and makes him so real that when he breaks character it seems odd. And of course all the pictures are just beyond cute. Teacher In Jae with bully Yi Kyung and Kim Woo Bin with the spoon?! I'd give anything to be that spoon! I'd give anything to be ANYTHING he TOUCHES!! God I wanna marry that boy!

I don't mind the preemption, because I still have to watch eps 5-8 of School 2013. I looooove the show, but then I'm like Can I really take the heartbreak today? and postpone catching up for another day...

I will be in the minority as well and admit that I actually welcome the preemption. Less distractions for me and maybe more resting time for HeadsNo2, who has been doing a wonderful job recapping KoDs. I still have to rewatch ep.11-14 (and maybe rewatch 15 and 16 too) fully subbed in English, and this turn of events would give me the time (I hope) to do that, and the time to write my thoughts for the comments on the recaps :-).

I watched it on dramacrazy.net. Here is the link:

It is really good and with so many great actors. I kept saying, "oh my goodness. I didn't know he was in this." or "look he is is so young here." One of the best dramas I have seen.

KBS and SBS are on Dec 31st. I'll be at work so I can't watch it live but will download as I get home.

This is will be an awesome and rewarding experience for me as I've invested a lot of time in K-dramaland this year!!!

no anything that helps keep down the number of episodes they do under that time pressure period is a good thing. Everything goes down hill 95% of the time in k-drama once they reach that point, so less episodes made under that pressure means less time for the script production and filming to go down hill and bringing the acting down with it..after all it hard to stay in character when the writers or producer changing it very week to fit the time limitation.

Basically yes....that is what it represents today.

When flipped the other way though...basically means fuck off.

In some places it's actually a victory, not a peace sign (in other words, given the situational context and opposite meanings, it might not be so harmless at all!).

Seems to be Lee Jong-suk whose particularly fond of making that sign.

Nah, we do the peace sign here but it was never really popular...also apparently if you flip your hand the other side, it becomes a swear word *shrugs* the things you hear in primary school :D

But seriously no school and no king :(( what a nightmare, although my exams are starting the week after (jan 11) so maybe it's a good thing that there are less distractions!

"V" was a Victory salute during World War 2, a counter to the Nazi salute.
Also as an insult, "V" symbolized spread legs.

I've heard it's because Koreans like to emphasize having a V-line and so they pose with the V-sign. But I'm not 100% sure

On December 25, an official from KBS announced, “Actor Joo Won will be re-enacting the unforgettable scene from the drama ‘Bridal Mask’ at the ‘2012 KBS Drama Acting Awards.’”

The OST “Judgement Day,” which was sung by Joo Won himself, will also be part of this performance. A choir and the famous tenor singer Lee Jung Hyun will appear as special guests as well.

How EPIC will that be?? **Dies**

But I just don't want to know,
