    That’s not all that’s killed in this massive purge; news is out that MBC also canceled “Quiz Show Q.” I have absolutely no idea what’s going on in Headquarters, but this seems like only the beginning of a massive overhaul by MBC. I wonder if they had gotten new management or something, because cutting everything seems like a huge risk to take up.

    I didn’t even know that Answer Me 1997 was a sitcom. In my head, a sticom is at least 200 episodes… How do you differenciate between a drama and a sitcom?

      I think Answer Me 1997 was categorized as a sitcom because each episode (except for the last two) was half an hour while most drama episodes last for one hour.

    Well all these decisions are a result of the head dictator in Chief MBC President Kim Jae-Cheol. He was the main cause of the earlier MBC strike as he fired journalists just because they dared to criticize the President of S.K. and his government. He pushed shows through like God of War, May Queen and the daily saguek show that will be aired next year Hur Jeon season 2. Hopefully he is gone next year when a new president of S.K. is elected since it’s the president who appoints the head of MBC and I think KBS(?).

      Is that for real? The Head of State appointed the heads of the major broadcasting stations in South Korea?

      • Haibara Christie

        That doesn’t make sense considering the Big Three are also rivals.  How can the head of state appoint the presidents of rivaling broadcasting stations?

        • mangochic

           I have to look for the article but it’s true. The goal is to make money so rivalry wouldn’t hurt.

         Yes he does. I can’t remember exactly where I read it but he does it indirectly through a committee. He is trying to keep his job with all these changes.

    I loved the original High Kick with Kim Bum and Jung Il Woo and I thought Standby was funny.
    Anyways these cancellations in MBC were pretty shockers,especially Come to Play they were still in the middle of introducing new MC’s and segments.I’m disappointed.I was happily anticipating Eunhyuk and I got this announcement, too bad I so wanted Yoo Jae Suk and Eunhyuk interactions.

    Ah. And here I was still patiently waiting for a 4th High Kick installment to rectify for that craven ending MBC came up with for High Kick 2. 

    Maybe MBC’s just taking the lazy way out again.  Given the right team/writers/cast, they can still churn out another well-loved daily series. The Daily Sitcom is Not Dead.
