Daemul eyes a fall premiere on SBS
It looks like Daemul is close to getting an airdate on SBS; producers have been meeting with the broadcasters to set a date in stone, and while it’s not fixed yet, it’s likely to take the Wednesday-Thursday timeslot after the Hong sisters fantasy-trendy drama My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho. That drama will premiere in August, meaning Daemul will probably hit the air in October.
This comes after a rocky pre-production period two years ago that included PD switches, which was followed by a cancellation and even a lawsuit against one of its stars. (The production’s two leads, Go Hyun-jung and Kwon Sang-woo, went on to other projects after waiting for Daemul, but a dispute arose regarding whether they were free of their obligations. Eventually they worked it out and both stars are back onboard.) The project had been dropped by SBS, was rumored to be picked up by MBC, and is now back at SBS.
Daemul has attracted a lot of attention from the get-go; based on a manhwa, it features a relationship between the first female president and the gigolo who seduces her.
