KBS, MBC, SBS, and JTBC will all be canceling both dramas and variety shows.

As KBS has both 1TV and 2TV, they won't have to cancel anything but the daily drama 'Still Loving You' on KBS 1TV. All dramas and variety shows on KBS 2TV will air as normal.

As President Of Korea, I am asking all our Korean citizens specially the young generation who are following AKP to cast their vote today as Korean presidential election. Voting is duty ! I am asking you to think deeply before casting your vote. Think deeply for which party you are going to vote, because the chairman of the party will be our President for the next years ! Please think which way is better for the security and wealth of our country. The party who are promising paradise and miracle and by the same way adventure or continuity with Saenuri party !!!! I hope that by chosing   Saenuri party I will have again the opportunity to serve Korea and its citizens. Dear citizens follows it's 11:am Korean time, You have still 9 hours to think before voting for your candidate. Please go to the poll and vote for your next president ! Please vote for Saenuri party. Manse Korea

Hi Inmate No. 503, did you enjoy the mansion aka jail cell gifted by your beloved citizens?

Well, it looks like everyone will sadly have to wait until next week to catch up on their favorite Korean television programs because of course the presidential elections are being held today in South Korea.  I know that it sucks to hear this but it is what it is.  On the bright side of things though, all channels EXCEPT KBS2 are shelving their programs just for today and that's all it matters.

The younger generation used to dislike politics and choose not to vote, thinking its a waste of time, but after the previous incident, they realized that their vote can change the future and who is the "in charge", and if they dun exercise their voting rights, a less competent president could be elected instead. so surveys show that more younger voters have said they will surely go and cast their votes this time. the key focus for them was how the govt is going to change the job market for new graduates who are having a hard time getting jobs and also small business who cant afford to hire staff and pay low wages for part timers. That is why this week is likely to be a quiet week in Kpop with no one trying to release new songs or hold a showcase.

reason gotta love paid channel ... they care less about politics lol

Winston Hyungshi Monday, May 8, 2017

its not they care less, its because the cable channels cater to a smaller group of viewers and those already have access to satellite TV channels, KBS, MBC, SBS, already so they can chose to watch it if they need politics coverage. If MBC or SBS didnt cancel their shows, they will get comments from the public that they dun care for the presidency and its not an example to set, being one of the 3 national broadcasters. if the others do it and cancel their programs, they will follow suit.

This is ridiculous. Kpop and Kdramas are more important than elections.

vampirediaries taj4329 Monday, May 8, 2017

lmfao what?

partyfan2013 taj4329 Monday, May 8, 2017

Dude, you know that Election Day is today in South Korea. So therefore, you are going to at least wait until next week for all of the K-dramas and variety shows to return on the air after the election. I know that it sucks but we gotta bear through it anyway.

Kutoro taj4329 Tuesday, May 9, 2017

What a thoughtless, disrespectful, childish comment!

Wang_delulu_D taj4329 Wednesday, May 10, 2017

I see that you also need to be admitted into our mental hospital where wangker sejung is a patient
