Duel will be tweaking its starting time.
OCN announced that their weekend drama Duel will begin airing at 10:20 p.m. KST instead of 10 p.m. KST from June 10. A CJ EM representative stated, Considering that tvNs new weekend drama Stranger (also known as Forest of Secrets) will begin airing on June 10 at 9 p.m. KST, we decided to push back the starting time of Duel so that viewers can enjoy both dramas.
OCN and tvN are sister companies under CJ EM, and it seems that they are hoping to create a synergy effect of viewers watching the two dramas back to back with the new schedule.
Duel is a thriller drama that follows the conflict between a detective whose daughter is kidnapped and two clones who embody good and evil. Stranger will tell the story of an emotionless prosecutor and a warm and just detective as they uncover truths and face off against corruption.
From June 10, Stranger will air every Saturday and Sunday at 9 p.m. KST on tvN, followed by Duel at 10:20 p.m. KST on OCN.
