With programming being preempted for year end awards shows and the like, it’s going to be hit-and-miss whether currently airing dramas will be aired on schedule. MBC‘s Wed-Thurs drama Mr. Back will be ending on schedule this week with the final episode dropping on Christmas. The follow up drama Kill Me Heal Me has calmed down considerably since the crazy casting carousel last month. It must be a relief for the production since the project has a hefty price tag and an even more daunting premise with the male lead suffering from multiple personalities and tumbles into a romance with a first year psychiatry resident.
KMHM with Ji Sung, Hwang Jung Eum, Park Seo Joon, and Kim Yoo Ri will get a much needed extra week of filming and will premiere on January 7th, with MBC filling next week’s time slot with year end shows. The overseas shoot portion appears to have been wisely shelved after the drama got off to such a late filming start. The first official stills are out showing the fraternal twins played by Hwang Jung Eum and Park Seo Joon doing a rather physical scene at the airport. This drama seems much more rough and tumble in a relaxed way than I expected, and that impression is also reaffirmed when I see Ji Sung’s younger looking hairdo which I totally love.
