Currently airing KBS drama 'Beautiful Mind' starring Jang Hyuk and Park So Dam will coming to an end earlier than scheduled. 

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. Reportedly, this abrupt change was due to the fact that the '2016 Rio Olympics' are coming up soon, and that the drama aims to avoid any overlap with special Olympic broadcasts.

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. 

Currently, MBC drama 'Doctors', airing during same time as 'Beautiful Mind', is taking the lead in the category of Monday/Tuesday dramas with 19.3% in viewership ratings. Meanwhile, 'Beautiful Mind' is the lowest out of KBS, MBC, and SBS with 3.9%.

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

Eh? Nooooo!!!!! 16 eps is already little enough for me now they are cutting it to 14?I really love the drama. I still don't get why it has low ratings though but I really love it.There is a drama I dropped before since I cant bear to watch it anymore but this one,I waited for new episodes eagerly every week. T-T

Why don't KBS air double episodes on its final week so that viewer can watch it full 16 episode. This drama kinda remind me bit on "House M.D." Unfortunately Asian drama tend to make love the main plot on its drama which made Beautiful Mind kinda low rating.

That's some seriously sad news for me... the drama is awesome,i initially choose to watch "doctors" over beautiful mind when they started airing because of my fav actor parkshinhye,i love doctors at first(although it didnt mean i hate it now) however while waiting for weeks after weeks for the next ep. i decided to try beautiful mind and to my surprised i just couldnt stop watching thinking and waiting for more ep.. it became my top most fav drama this days. i love the plot,the twist,the unusual character of the male lead and the sweetness of the female please dont make it shorter than the original plan. Its a great great drama, eventhough its surprisingly underrated and has low viewership, im sure it will become popular anyway.

This is the main problem in korean drama industry...rating is the only thing that is important. ..storyline is not even considered. .
