Chicago Typewriter pre-empted this weekend

Aaargh, again? This is not a good week for drama addicts. I’m already having a hard enough time with the pre-emption for Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People, which chose Monday of all days to pull out all the stops, take all my tears, and then leave me hanging with no Tuesday episode. And now tvN has announced that that its Friday-Saturday drama Chicago Typewriter will be skipping a full week, with no new episodes until May 12. Say it ain’t so!

This time the pre-emption isn’t related to election coverage, but holidays during Golden Week, a time when many families travel because of consecutive work and school holidays. tvN announced that Chicago Typewriter won’t air as scheduled this Friday and Saturday, May 5-6, and will instead air a special episode on Saturday that includes new behind-the-scenes footage narrated by Go Kyung-pyo. Episodes 9 and 10 will then air the following weekend, May 12-13.

I know pre-emptions never feel like they come around at a good time, but it feels especially mean to take a week off after finally getting me invested in the loveline. I wasn’t really feeling Yoo Ah-in’s connection to Im Soo-jung in the present day (the past is another matter entirely, as I actually wish the entire drama just took place in 1930s Kyungsung and dispensed with the present altogether). But over the last two episodes, the hero’s awkward attempts at courtship were really hapless and endearing, and made him seem human. I just wish they had shown him planting blueberries and building doghouses seven episodes ago, because then I could’ve liked him from the start.

In the absence of Chicago Typewriter (and Tunnel too), this seems like the weekend to marathon something old. Time to go digging through my vault.

WHAT. But Chicago Typewriter just started to get SO good. I finally felt the emotional hook I've been waiting for! What a bummer.

Oh, Rebel. My mind actually somehow forgot about the preemption (because, really, of all cliffhangers, how could it be this one?!) and I'm currently reeling from the (re)discovery that I have to wait a whole week. After all our hopes for a reunion, this episode really took 'be careful what you wish for' to a whole new (and totally cruel) level! The only upside is that I've now officially become Chae Soo-bin's hugest fan (because she is AMAZING).

I've become the sort of fan for Chae Soo Bin that I like her instagram posts immediately, then go back to read her comment. She's adorable.

Same here! I totally forgot about the preemption for Rebel (though I've read the news)! When I watched that ultimate cliffhanger yesterday, I still thought 'Oh thank God only need to wait one day for the continuance'.
Not long after I realized that I have to wait for ONE WHOLE WEEK for the next episode instead... so crueeeeellll dramagod.

This is cruel - way to cruel to do this to us drama-addicts! I have been plowing through mid-term papers, with the hopes of getting a satisfying fix with a good episode of Rebel after a gruelling 2 hours....only to find that it has been pre-empted!!!! Going into withdrawal now!

The good news is that the preemptions come the same week as Season 2 of Sense8 dropping on Netflix. I might not have new Tunnel episodes (DAMMIT, right after THAT happens) but I got Bae Doo Na.

NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!! Not when I'm already starting to like this again!!! (Okay, I admit, I liked this again after seeing that they would not ditch the Dog as merely another animal prop like a lot of vanishing animals in other k-dramas.) Dog concerns aside, the 1930s story has already reeled me in. Nooooooooooo!!! I hate it when that happens—the semester is about to end and I'll be swamped with stuff again and before I pick it up, the story has already moved on!

I am living for any comment about Rebel t b h.

The pre-emptions are painful. Even my mum was annoyed that she couldn't watch Whisper, and she's been following the presidential debate closely.

Maybe if this meant I'd do some more study rather than watch variety show pilots ........

Nooo! Although on the plus side, an extra week will take some of the pressure off the cast and crew, and will allow for more time to keep the writing and production values high. I love the visual moments in the show, and I know those are hard to maintain when the live shoot craziness gets too intense.

I agree it's really hard to maintain great visual storytelling when live shooting come knocking. Though not impossible!

*waves hands* I need it too.

Actually a few days back I realized I haven't watched The King 2 Hearts (I need something with Ha Ji-won in it) so I put it into my waiting list, but I haven't watched Secret Garden either and my friend suggested I should watch it instead. I think it's a perfect time to choose between those two hmm...

i havent watched King 2 Hearts either. great idea!

I would say put the king 2 hearts first because both were addictive, both you will find the lead males PITA but the rewards are so much higher and losses so much more saddening that you'll be madder that you didn't watch it earlier. Lastly JO JUNG SEUK. Maybe I should of started with that ?

ALWAYS start with Jo Jung Suk!

Seriously, TK2H is a great choice. Very memorable years later.

I just watched TK2H last week and definitely recommend it. I wanted to watch another Jo Jung Suk drama afterwards so I'm on Jealousy Incarnate now. (Looks like I have plenty of time too because of CT and Tunnel.)

O...kay, this is absolutely my fault for not knowing that Jo Jung-seok is in this drama too. I only knew Lee Seung-gi and Ha Ji-won. Now I HAVE to watch this. Thanks! ♥?

Another meme contest? I would suggest Rebel's cliffhanger scene (Chae Soo Bin image), except it feels so raw at the moment I couldn't bear to joke about it.
Maybe one about Mori: 'Waiting for you to join the good guys is like waiting for preemption week to be over'.
