Only one episode of You From Another Star to air this week

Happy Lunar New Year, but also, boo to Lunar New Year. The day falls on Friday, January 31, but it’s a big enough holiday in Korea that it really ends up spanning Thursday through Sunday, which calls for time off work, trips back to hometowns, family gatherings… and television schedule reshuffling.

This year You From Another Star will be one of the shows being pre-empted for holiday TV programming. At least it’ll be the only prime-time drama not to air on Thursday, but I still reserve the right to wail at only getting a one-episode fix this week. Episode 13 airs on Wednesday, with Episode 14 pushed to next week. Nooooo. Depending on the nature of Episode 13’s ending (who wants to bet CLIFFHANGER) I also reserve the right to scream. Fist-shaking at heaven optional but preferred.

For the folks in Korea, you’ll get to watch Kim Soo-hyun on television anyway, since SBS will be screening his blockbuster Covertly, Grandly. I do wonder how much You From Another Star’s absence will affect the ratings for its two competitors, since there’s a whole 25% chunk of the ratings that’ll be up for grabs; maybe Age of Feeling and Miss Korea will be able to get a piece of that action.

On the upside, this increases the chances of You From Another Star getting an extra episode to even out its finale week, now that it’s off its airing schedule by one episode. Fair trade?

That I can understand. Lunar New Year is way more important in East Asia than regular New Year, so I am glad that the staff will be able to take some time off to spend it with their families, but at the same time, NOOOOOOO! Two episodes a week is already too little.

you can watch the ep 13 on dramafire...they don't chop off one episode into 5-6 clips. It's one single video per ep.

Either I start from the beginning or I watch Dream High or Moon/Sun again^^ I need my KSH fix though nothing can compensate for the loss of one episode YFAS -.-

I am sure that ep. 13 will end with a cliffhanger and I am already dying :P I guess tomorrow would be the perfect time (after watching ep. 13 of course) to fall into a deep sleep for a week until it's Wednesday again :P

On the plus side... more YFAS in total? It certainly has the ratings to warrant an episode extension.. maybe the extra one can just be an hour of Song-yi and Min-joon snuggling. *poker face*

With the way last week's episode concluded I'm just super happy Wednesday's episode wasn't pre-empted as well.

With Let's Eat airing once a week, I think I might be used to this type of drama schedule. Although it would have been nice to get two episodes this week, I think this is a great opportunity for another Wednesday Thursday drama to pull first place. I'm thinking it will be Inspiring Age. And like you said, hopefully it's not much of a cliffhanger.

No extension! More often than not, it ruins the pacing of the drama. I'd only want an extension if the writer requests it.

this drama is so awesome; I was looking forward to my 2 episodes to drool over this week.
I agree; I think western schedules (unless you're talking Dallas, etc) are pretty much stand alone episodes, they don't move the story forward all that much. Well, I guess Once upon a time, Grimm, but Korean TV is just so much MORE.
It's hard to explain, but it is just so much better. (don't go westernizing Korean TV; we like it the way it is). and while I love every drama; I love that they come to an end , and we have a new drama to fall in love with.

I never felt the desperation each week with Western shows even back when Pretty Little Liars had cliffhangers.
Honestly, korean dramas have perfected the art of television shows in my opinion. They have just enough crack, crazy, love and some other secret ingredient that once you've had a taste, you'll always be back for more.

I get what you mean. Western shows (although fun to watch) don't really get me emotionally the way k-dramas do. You don't sit there playing an emotional OST while crying your eyes out with some tissue by your side.

TBH the only American show that i waited with bated breath for week after week is Walking Dead(more specifically beginning of season 3). Not everyone's cup of tea, but i love how there's a good mixture of horror/apocalypse/big character growths/fighting/humanity.

Hmm, I wonder if they're also pre-empting because they're struggling with the live-shooting. SBS will probably strong arm them into an extension even if the cast is exhausted.

I hope Miss Korea can at least climb to double digits (unlikely though). It's a shame, it's a lovely show.

I think Inspiring Generation will definitely climb higher, but obviously has more of a chance when YFAS is over.

I don't think that the cancellation has anything to do with the Lunar New Year. Neither KBS or MBC are cancelling their dramas.

I think that they are way behind on filming and were not able to get two episodes ready for this week. Lunar New Year is a perfect excuse to delay one episode.

Next week we will get two episodes because the Olympics doesn't start until Friday. There may be more cancellations during the Olympics especially because Kim Yuna is scheduled to skate on the second Wednesday and Thursday of the games.

The good side to the delay is that there will be no rushed editing and the cast and crew can maybe get some sleep before they do the final episodes.

Both IHYV and Master's Sun suffered because of adding an extension so I hope they do not add one to this show.

Yeah, i wouldn't be too surprised if lunar new year wasn't the only reason to pre-empt. SBS has been wanting an extension from the hit show while the YFAS production team has been pretty adamant about sticking to their 20 episodes and not extending. This is fair trade for both parties as YFAS gets to relax their tight schedule and SBS gets their extension.
(I was worried when i saw how behind they were with their schedule with the lack of previews and the lack of sleep from our cast, so maybe this pre-empt isn't all that bad). As much as i love YFAS, i also love it when it delivers on the goodies. We don't want any sloppy editing or mediocre visuals ;)

Also, not sure if this is 100% correct but someone on soompi checked the schedule and saw kim yuna was slated to skate 12a.m feb 20th/21st but our drama will be airing feb 19th/20th from 10p.m-11p.m. She won't necessarily be gracing our screens during the time YFAS airing, so i hope they don't cancel 2 episodes that week (episodes 19/20!) cause i'll go nuts.

This show has become so addicting that the 1-episode fuel is barely enough to satisfy my addiction.
but what, no groaning from JB about the extension? Haha priceless.

my face when i heard the news : do managers face at the end of ep.12

withdrawal symptoms: acting like cheon song yi.

thank god I have age of feeling which is my second favorite thing.

I wonder how the final stretch of yfas will go in terms of ratings since it collides with winter olympics and you know how s.korea loves their beloved Kim yuna.

I bet they're going to kill us with a really good cliffhanger.
Thing is though, YFAS always managed to give me a few more seconds than I expect of them in terms of cliffhangers. They manage to cut away at just the right time so I don't feel AS anxious. ie. song yi's car driving off the cliff. i expected it to end with her thisclose to the edge but then we see min joon saving her (in a mighty epic way, that is) and then it ends. Me = Satisfied.
and then i expected them to cut away at the end of ep.10 immediately after jae kyung fired the bullet, or mid-fire. But then we see min joon completely one ups him by transporting. Thus, i wasn't so anxious waiting for what happens in the next 6 days.

Aww, that makes Kitty sad there's only one episode this week. I love that little alien, even when he's being stubborn and angsty and won't just tell the girl he loves her. Okay, should probably mention the whole two months left cause he's an alien thing at some point. My husband laughs at me cause I've threatened more than once to take said alien over my knee and spank him for being so stubborn, but that's also partly why I love the show so much.
