KBS reviewing whether to cancel Monday-Tuesday drama times

AKP STAFF

KBS is considering cancelling the Monday-Tuesday drama time slot.

On August 2, KBS told media outlets, "We're currently reviewing whether or not to temporarily suspend dramas in the Monday-Tuesday time slot." It was previously reported KBS would be doing away with Monday-Tuesday dramas in December, and 'Tale of Nok Du' will be the final drama in the time slot to air. 

'Perfume' is the most recent Monday-Tuesday drama, while 'I Wanna Hear Your Song' is scheduled to air next. 

MBC and SBS have also decided to temporarily cancel Monday-Tuesday dramas following the end of 'Welcome 2 Life' and 'The Secret Life of My Secretary'.

Stay tuned for updates.

With the reports of KBS's financial struggles, I suppose this shouldn't be a big surprise. SBS gave up on Monday-Tuesday dramas back in June.


Dramas are expensive compared to other types of programming and the days of the major broadcast networks pulling in double-digit ratings for any 'ol drama they air are long gone. Viewers have lots of choices now. The cable channels like tvN, JTBC, and OCN are giving the majors a real run for their money quality-wise.

Maybe its time to consider merger. Would be able to cut down cost and pool up best talents and higher rating programs.
