It feels like KBS drama Arbitrarily Fond has been filming for quite a long time but it’s actually only been a few months. The transition from live-filming to pre-produced isn’t new to other drama countries but for K-dramas it still takes some getting used to in expecting teasers and stills and whatnot. Arbitrarily Fond would seem like the perfect drama to follow Descendants of the Sun on Wed-Thurs, but is instead being kept until July while Master: God of Noodles airs after DotS.
The reason makes sense financially as the drama is already slated for simultaneous broadcast in China and Korea hence it needs to be fully completed in filming to receive Chinese broadcast approval and timing-wise it wouldn’t be ready in time to follow DotS. In a recent news broadcast discussing the project, scenes of the cast at script reading were shown and it’s the first time leads Kim Woo Bin, Suzy, and Im Joo Hwan are seen together. Visually this will be a charismatic cast especially with Im Joo Eun rounding out the main four, so excited even if it’s months away!
