Happy Seollal (Lunar New Year) and Drama Preemption

Koreans are currently celebrating one of the biggest celebration in their country – Lunar New Year (Korean New Year / Seollal) which this year falls on 31 January 2014. They have 3 days Seollal holiday starting from today (Thursday) – Saturday (and Sunday); they usually spend this long break to visit their relatives in their hometown / family gathering.  So it’s not a big surprise that SBS and KBS2 have pre-empted their Thursday drama slot. You Who Came From the Stars and Inspiring Generation will not be aired today (30 January 2014). SBS will fill YWCFTS slot with The Thieves Secretly Greatly (starting from 20.40PM) and KBS2 will broadcast Inspiring Generation episode 1 – 5 summary. Miss Korea will be the only Wed-Thurs drama aired this evening. I’ve marathon-ed this underrated gem drama (up to episode 6 now) and I’m loving it! I hope viewers who usually watch YWCFTS / Inspiring Generation will take a quick peek at this drama and hopefully they’ll enjoy it as much as I do.

Update: Inspiring Generation episode 6 will be aired tonight. Inspiring Generation special episode (summary of episode 1-5) will be broadcast today starting from 16.05PM. Miss Korea episode 14 will also be aired tonight. 


Because I’m currently following all three Wed-Thurs dramas, the preemption will drive me crazy 😀 But at least it’ll give a breather especially for YWCFTS casts who’re already under very tight-schedule. They’ll still be filming during the three days Seollal holiday, hwaiting to them! Still can’t predict the ending, but praying for a happy ending for Min Joon & Song Yi.

To everyone who celebrates Seollal / Chinese New Year / Lunar New Year, Happy New Year! May the year of the horse will bring you lots of happiness and hope all your wishes, dreams, goals & visions be accomplished this year. 새해 복 많이 받으세요 =)
