Due to the opening of the '2012 London Olympics', a number of SBS variety shows and dramas are on the verge of canceling future episodes.
SBS has turned their focus to the live broadcasting of the games, unlike KBS and MBC who have decided to go ahead with the broadcasting of their shows, 'Invincible Youth 2', 'Immortal Song 2', and 'Infinity Challenge'.
Aside from 'BoA 4354' and reruns of episodes 17 and 18 of 'Gentlemen's Class', SBS will be dedicated to running Olympic programs for the entire day on July 28th. The entire line-up for Saturday was canned, with the men and women's judo preliminaries and the women's handball preliminary taking the place of 'Star Junior Show' and 'Star King'.
'Gentlemen's Class', which has been consistently seeing a high rating of 20%, is also at risk of being canceled, although nothing has been confirmed quite yet.
SBS stated, "We'll decide the broadcasting of the 19th episode of 'Gentlemen's Class' according to the results of the Korean athletes participating in the judo and shooting tournaments." Should the Korean athletes pass the preliminaries and continue on, fans will most likely have to wait. On the contrary, should the Korean athletes drop out, the drama will air at an earlier time of 9:30 p.m.
Variety shows 'Law of the Jungle 2', 'Running Man', and 'You & I' will also be replaced on the 29th with the men and women's judo preliminaries, and the male handball preliminaries of Korea vs Croatia. 'Gentlemen's Class' will also not air depending on the progress of Korea's soccer team.
