Election Delays Shows and Premieres

As expected, the presidential elections are creating a lot of scheduling changes in dramaland. KBS has finally confirmed their Monday-Tuesday drama lineup in May, and added two weeks of drama shorts to air during the election season. Following currently airing Perfect Wife will be the new 2-episode drama Individualist Ji-young, which will air on May 8-9. The next week after that on May 15-16, a director’s cut edition of Baek-hee Has Returned will air. And finally a week later, Fight My Way will premiere on May 22.

Every broadcaster seems to be moving their Monday-Tuesday premieres to May 22, so Fight My Way will have some stiff competition with Lookout and Circle both premiering the same night.

New mini drama Individualist Ji-young is a comic romance healing drama starring Min Hyo-rin as a loner woman who only likes herself, and Gong Myung as a dependent man who cannot live without other people around him. The drama is about how they meet and heal their psychological wounds together. Baek-hee Has Returned is about a former It Girl of a sleepy island town, who left home abruptly at eighteen only to return eighteen years later with a new name and a daughter in tow. The original 4-part drama that aired last summer will be re-broadcast in two parts.

tvN announced through a press release that some of their Friday shows and dramas would receive adjusted broadcast times for April 28 due to the presidential candidate debate, which is set to take place that day. Chicago Typewriter, which was set to air its seventh episode on April 28 at 8 p.m. KST, will air both episodes 7 and 8 on April 29 starting at 7:50 p.m. KST. Additionally, Youn’s Kitchen, which normally airs on Fridays at 9:20 p.m. KST, has been pushed back to air at 10 p.m on April 28. KST instead. SNL Korea 9 will air on Saturday, April 29 at 10:30 p.m. KST.

It was previously announced that OCN's Tunnel would be taking a week off on May 6 and 7.

Whyyyy are three shows I want to watch premiering on the same inconvenient day? Heads up if you're watching Chicago Typewriter that there's no episode today and two will air tomorrow.
