Park Shin-yang turns down Jo Deul-ho extension, KBS keeps trying
by | May 20, 2016 | 51 Comments
Well, this is interesting. KBS is currently in talks with the cast and crew of its successful Monday-Tuesday series Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho to extend the show by 4 episodes, bringing the total count to 24 (and give its follow-up drama Beautiful Mind another two weeks to get its act together, no doubt). Then today,... More »

KBS in talks to extend Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho
by | May 19, 2016 | 25 Comments
Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho is performing well for KBS as the ratings leader on Mondays and Tuesdays, having just hit the 15% ratings mark this week. So it’s no surprise to hear that KBS is considering a 4-episode extension for the legal/underdog/human drama, and it seems easy enough to give it a few extra hours;... More »

Cinderella and the Four Knights still without a broadcaster
by | May 10, 2016 | 58 Comments
It’s too bad, but it looks like we might not be seeing youth romance drama Cinderella and the Four Knights this year. The window is slowly closing on remaining timeslots in 2016 for the Big 3 and tvN (or should we just call them the Big 4 now), and the series isn’t any closer to... More »

Beautiful Mind holds test shoots without lead actress
by | May 1, 2016 | 35 Comments
I’ll try not to be alarmist about this, but it’s difficult to follow the news of KBS’s upcoming Beautiful Mind and not think it’s going worryingly awry. Recent reports have stated that the drama, which is set to premiere next month and hasn’t secured a lead actress yet, went ahead and held a test shoot... More »

SBS wins the battle for Jealousy Incarnate
by | April 20, 2016 | 70 Comments
Dude, the behind-the-scenes drama for this drama is hilariously entertaining. KBS and SBS have been fighting over the new romantic comedy Jealousy Incarnate for over a week now, with both stations announcing in turn that they had confirmed the drama and given it a timeslot on their schedules, which obviously couldn’t be true. The new... More »

by | January 26, 2016 | 113 Comments
It’s only in its third week, but KBS seems ready to give up on its fantasy youth drama Moorim School, and is giving the show an episode cutdown from 20 down to 16. (Some outlets hedge that the broadcaster is in talks, but the majority report this as a done deal. Fans will probably want... More »

KBS gives Producers-esque variety dramas a second try
by | January 2, 2016 | 53 Comments
Looks like KBS is ready to give its experimental variety-meets-drama format another go, despite meeting with mixed reviews (some of that very critical) the first time with The Producers. I’m surprised to hear of it, since it seemed like they were so quick to give up on the idea at the first resistance it got,... More »

Master of Trade—Inn 2015 to end with 41 episodes
by | December 16, 2015 | 39 Comments
First and foremost, I find it confusing and oddly funny that I can’t tell from this news whether Master of Trade—Inn 2015 is being cut or extended. Most reports call it an extension but the various articles have conflicting counts, which differ again with the news articles previously published in earlier publicity rounds. The KBS... More »
