Election preemptions for Wednesday dramas
Poutyface. Regional elections will be held in Korea on Wednesday, June 4, which means drama preemptions for current Wednesday-Thursday shows You’re All Surrounded and A New Leaf this week. Both SBS and MBC will be airing special election coverage that night, which means we’ll have to wait till Thursday for new drama episodes. This is especially stingy in Leaf’s case, since they only aired one episode last week due to a World Cup special.
At least A New Leaf left off on a happy note last Thursday and let Kim Myung-min finally reunite with his puppy, whereas You’re All Surrounded had to go out on the ONE cliffhanger we’ve been waiting on for weeks. You know, the one where our hero’s secret identity is blown and we’re waiting to watch the (violent but bromantic) fallout? How can two puppies have had such very different days?
It’ll be interesting to see if this changes the ratings game at all, since last week Golden Cross received a nice bump in ratings due to A New Leaf’s absence (Golden Cross’s last episode recorded 9.2%). You’re All Surrounded has been steadily in first place (in the 12-14% range) since its premiere, but the Wednesday-Thursday shows have been fairly close all around.
Both shows will resume on Thursday, with A New Leaf Episode 10 and You’re All Surrounded Episode 9 airing on June 5.
