On July 22, KBS confirmed that the drama will now be ending with a total of 14 episodes. This is 2 less than the amount of episodes initially scheduled to air.

Many viewers reacted to the unfortunate news with great disappointment, and even rejected KBS's "excuse". In fact, the majority believe that the true reason for the change in schedule was the result of the drama's low viewership ratings.

    This is srsly unbelievable... this drama has the most intersting and powerful plot and acting amongst ALL of the dramas currently airing and it's just sooo sad to see how underrated it is.... proves that people care more about the cast than the actual quality of the drama. Ughhhhh this is making me mad
