TvN's series "A Piece of Your Mind," starring heartthrob actor Jung Hae-in, will end early by cutting four of the originally scheduled episodes due to poor ratings.
The production team said Wednesday, "We have decided to shorten the number of episodes to 12 and speed up development of the plot to meet the expectations of our viewers."
The romantic series, starring Jung and Chae Soo-bin, began airing on March 23 with 2.4 percent ratings. However, ratings continued to drop and fell to 1.2 percent this week, after six episodes.
The story unfolds a romance between an AI programmer Ha-won (Jung) and a classical music recording engineer Seo-woo (Chae).
"The relationship between the two characters will hit a turn that will spark the romance between them," the team said. "We will do our best to make a good story until the end for our viewers."
The series whetted fans' appetites before it went to air, as the lead actors are known for their roles in rom-coms. However, the series soon fell short of expectations with a slow and complex storyline.
The series airs on Mondays and Tuesdays at 9 p.m.
