Kyung-tae falls in love; Mo Hyun is impressed

All the South Korean broadcasters and production companies were busy with the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics TV coverage and have pre-empted all their prime time shows from entertainment programming to dramas.

Due to all the pre-emptions, KBFD will have non-scheduled programming for the next two weeks on Monday through Friday at 7:45 pm.

We will resume to regular scheduled programming the following week.

We will have special two-part dramas on Mondays and Tuesdays. Another two- part drama will air Wednesday and Thursday.

We had a similar experience the last time the Olympics were held in South Korea in 1988.

This Winter Olympic for many South Koreans were very special with the participation of North Korean athletes. The women’s ice hockey team consisted of South Korean and North Korean players on the same team.
