SBS has decided to postpone the airing of one episode of the ongoing hit drama Pinocchio on December 31st, making up for it by broadcasting 2 episodes on January 1st, 2015 instead.
On December 31st, SBS will be having their grand awards show SBS Drama Awards from 8:55PM to to 12:55AM KST, which will conflict with the drama’s regular timeslot which starts at 9:55PM KST.
As a result, Pinocchio will not air on December 31st and instead, episodes 15 and 16 will air back-to-back on January 1st, starting at from 10PM KST. Comedy show Jagiya that takes the initial timeslot on Thursdays at 11PM KST will cease broadcast on January 1st.
Pinocchio is scheduled to have 20 episodes in total, and is currently competing with MBC drama Mister Baek and KBS drama The King’s Face for the best ratings.
