tvN is Panicking, Moves/Adds Drama Slots

Cable station tvN has announced a significant change in its scheduling plans, going six days a week with drama programming. tvN is adding a Wednesday-Thursday drama slot to the schedule, and will be shifting its Friday-Saturday shows to a more traditional Saturday-Sunday slot.

One station rep explained that the decision comes out of the station’s recent ratings slump in an effort to breathe new life into things. After all, while tvN has been home to many of cable’s biggest success stories, it also has its fair share of underperformers; this year has produced lower-than-expected ratings for many of its offerings, like Introverted Boss, Tomorrow With You, and Chicago Typewriter.

The first tvN drama to be affected by this scheduling change will be Forest of Secrets, the pre-produced thriller starring Jo Seung-woo and Bae Doo-na (OP note: I've seen different sources say that it will be starting the beginning of June and will affect the last episodes of Chicago Typewriter, I haven't found a clear answer yet). It premieres on June 10 as a Saturday-Sunday drama. The Wednesday-Thursday drama block will launch in July, no announcement yet on which drama will premiere then.

The recent successes of jtbc and OCN compared to their own failures must have them scrambling. I like having their dramas to watch on Fridays, I'm annoyed at this change. Omona, what are your favorite tvN dramas? Your least favorite?

Song Hye-kyo’s family once blackmailed by manager

restmb_jhidxmake.php5.jpg

Actress Song Hye-kyo and her family were once threatened by her previous manager, revealed a TV program Monday. In an episode of a celebrity investigation program on Channel A, a reporter on the show shared that in January 2005, Song’s mother had received an unidentified blackmail letter.

It read, “I will ruin you and your daughter by pouring hydrochloric acid on your bodies unless you give me 250 million won ($223,520). If you don’t want to see your daughter’s body rotting and melting for the rest of your life, then you should really think about it. I have already prepared a large amount of toxins and hallucinogens.”

A police investigation found that the blackmailer was Song’s former manager, who the actress had worked with for three years.

“Song’s mother was so shocked by the letter that she spent the days in tears,” the reporter said. “But she didn’t press charges against the manager because she didn’t want to believe that he could have done such a thing.”

The manager reportedly decided to blackmail Song after he was fired from Song’s agency over an embezzlement allegation.


...the fuck? I hope he got locked away.

Park Bo-gum and Gugudan’s Kim Se-jeong chosen to be most ideal teachers



Park Bo-gum was chosen as the top celebrity that Koreans want to have as a school teacher, according to a local internet lectures company. The survey was conducted among nearly 920 students on Monday, Teacher's Day, asking “Which celebrity do you wish could be your school teacher?”

About 36 percent of the respondents picked Park as the top choice, while Gugudan’s Kim Se-jeong was chosen as the No. 2 choice.

“Since Park Bo-gum is not only handsome but was also a student who studied hard while going through a busy schedule, students likely picked the actor,” an official from the company said. “Meanwhile, the students mostly thought that Kim Se-jeong could be a cute and charming teacher.”

Other top picks include Park Hyung-sik, Park Bo-young, IU, Yook Sung-jae, Red Velvet’s Irene and Song Joong-ki.



Omona, who do you have dirty professor/student fantasies about? think would make a cute and charming teacher?

Sports Kyunghyang 12th Anniversary Special Edition Interview with BTS



BTS "The last 4 years were so spectacle to the point we can't remember the previous 20 years"


Seven member group BTS's (Rap Monster, Suga, J Hope, Jungkook, Jin, V, Jimin) 2017 was glorious than any other's. With the sensitivity of the early 20s that perfectly fits their age group, they completely swept the hearts of the "youths" from 10s to 20s. The people who swept off their feet didn't necessarily limit to Koreans. Fans around the world go wild because of their voice and body moves, and we're sure the number would be increasing every minute. This is the period when the youths of the people who sing about "youth" shine the brightest.

To celebrate the 12th anniversary of "Sports Kyunghyang", we selected group BTS who is currently busy with their second world tour concert "WINGS TOUR" as our interviewer. BTS perfected their musicality, and star quality as an artist and captured their identity in their music through their album "WINGS" which released end of last year and "WINGS Extension" which released earlier this year. Their global influence is proved by their entry in the US Billboard chart, ranking in iTunes charts around the world, and the number of the audience attending their tour concerts. And these boys are preparing their entry to the US Billboard Music Awards. BTS who is currently on their world tour expressed their present, past and future with words deep from their hearts during the exclusive interview with "Sports Kyunghyang". What other groups than BTS could express "Sports Kyunghyang" that is still young and fresh?
