Just as news that 궁 (Princess Hours) had become a big hit was making people at MBC forget a terrible 2005 and the not-so-good start of the year they had, here's another positive development for the former 'Drama Kingdom'.
We reported a while ago about the station's decision to postpone their latest show 늑대 (Wolf) to May, after the serious accident two of the stars ('Eric' Moon Jung-Hyuk and Han Ji-Min) suffered on the set, while shooting the 3rd Episode. The Kim Rae-Won/Jung Ryeo-Won Drama 공주님 (Princess) was going to start in March, and instead of 'Wolf' the station started airing the 8-to-10 Episode show 내 인생의 스페셜 (The Special of My Life). But Eric's recovery is not going as quickly as expected, and he'll have to add another month to the original 4-5 weeks of rehab, to threat his back and ankle injuries. While Han Ji-Min is already out of the hospital, it's pretty obvious the show will not be able to shoot until at least March, so even though the situation is a little problematic, MBC's further delay is a good decision, as it keeps in mind the safety of the actors first.
Now, what will happen? 'Wolf' is now going to be broadcast this Summer (July or August), after completing its entire shoot, another good news. It will air after the conclusion of 불꽃놀이 (Fireworks), which will follow the fantastic Historical Drama 신돈 (Shin Don) after its conclusion. Chorok Media announced they're currently working on the script, and preparing for a return to shooting, waiting for improvements regarding Eric's health. So we're killing two birds with a stone: fully recovered actors, and a completed Drama, free from any 'interference' from the viewers.
