KBS to stop airing dramas for Friday/Saturday timeslot

Unfortunately for viewers, KBS will halt broadcasting dramas on Fridays and Saturdays. 

The decision comes as a result of low viewership ratings even with hit dramas, such as 'The Best Shot' and 'Producer'. 'Producer' is the company's highest rated drama for this time slot, achieving a total of 17.7%. On average, the dramas airing within this time slot receive approximately 3-4%. 'Best Deliveryman', which is currently airing, received a 3.5% for its pilot episode.

KBS will implement this new change after the completion of 'Best Deliveryman' and 'Confession Couple' at the end of this year.

"The Fate of the Furious" overtakes "Beauty and the Beast" for pole position...

Bill Condon's "Beauty and the Beast" was unable to secure a fifth-straight run at the top because of the arrival of a high-octane action film from director F. Gary Gray. "The Fate of the Furious" (also known as Fast Furious 8), the eighth film in the franchise, arrived last Wednesday and scooped up the lion's share of the stubs (63.82%); from 1,467 screens around the country, "The Fate of the Furious" claimed 1.05 million admissions ($10.5 million). The film, which cost $250 million to produce, boasts an ensemble cast including Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges, and others. Worldwide, the 'F8' has already grossed over half a billion dollars.
