Although MBC will air two episodes of "Empress Ki" this week, many regularly scheduled programs on all three major networks will be cancelled. Some cancellations are in effect for the rest of the week because of last week"s tragic Sewol ferry disaster.
"Empress Ki," which only has four episodes left until it ends, was broadcast on Monday and is due to also air on Tuesday. Because the Sewol ferry tragedy happened last Wednesday, no episodes of "Empress Ki" or the other two Monday-Tuesday night dramas were missed.
MBC representatives also said that the programs "Shining Romance" and "Mother"s Garden" are due to broadcast as scheduled.
Although the station plans to gradually return to its regular schedule, representatives say it will do so with important and timely newsbreaks
