Many fans of Son Ye-jin are not happy with this sudden change.
The February 16 episode of ‘Yoo Quiz on the Block‘ (hereinafter referred to as ‘Yoo Quiz’) featuring Son Ye-jin is going to be delayed by an hour, which partially overlaps with the premiere of her new drama.
On February 14, tvN’s ‘Yoo Quiz’ announced the change of this week’s airtime on the show’s official Instagram, saying, “This week’s ‘OOO in my head’ special is scheduled to air at 9:45 PM on Wednesday.”
This might be due to the broadcast of the Beijing Olympics short track relay on February 16. The women’s 1500m short track quarterfinals, semifinals and finals will be held one after another from 8:30 PM on the same day. The men’s 5000m relay final for short track speed skating is scheduled to broadcast at 9:32 PM.
In fact, ‘Yoo Quiz’, which aired at 8:30 PM KST at the same time as usual on February 9th, fell sharply to a 3% viewership rating due to the overlapping airtime with the short track speed skating game.
However, as the broadcast time was changed, concerns have been raised among Son Ye-jin’s fans. This is because the changed airtime of ‘Yoo Quiz’ partially overlaps with Son Ye-jin’s drama ‘Thirty Nine’, which is set to premiere tomorrow night at 10:30 PM on JTBC.
Son Ye-jin guested on ‘Yoo Quiz’ to promote her comeback in ‘Thirty Nine‘, so fans are not happy with the show and the drama’s air times overlapping.
Meanwhile, other fans responded that they understood the situation and tvN’s decision to delay the broadcast time.
