According to tvN, the staff has ultimately decided to cancel broadcasts this weekend on December 30 and 31, in order to regroup and reassess the filming set conditions. On December 29, representatives from MBC's art department as well as officials from the labor union reported to the filming set of 'Hwayugi' in order to inspect the location. 


Read tvN's statement below: 


"We announce unfortunate news once again to the viewers who are watching 'Hwayugi'. 

tvN has decided to push back episode 3 of 'Hwayugi', which was set to air on December 30 (Saturday), by one week, in order to assess the filming set in detail. We would like to bow our heads in apology for causing controversies and inflicting worries to viewers after filming halted back on December 24, due to a staff member's injury as well as issues with the editing process.

Currently, we are reinforcing manpower to improve the set's standards and carrying out additional safety inspections to regroup in all aspects, including staff's working conditions and schedules. 

This is so that we can maintain adequate working conditions and so that we can assure no more accidents occur; please understand. 

Once again, we would like to apologize to all who give 'Hwayugi' their attention, and we will repay you with high quality programming after thorough reassessment and restructuring."


We hope all issues become resolved in a safe and appropriate manner.
