Though filming had begun and the drama was pre-sold to several different countries, it went unaired after KBS denied it a slot in their 2013 lineup. However, footage from the show was aired last October as part of the City Conquest Memorial Event put on by Henecia, the official fan club of KHJ.

The drama also features Jeong Yu-mi, star of the 2011 melodrama A Thousand Days Promise. When City Conquest was unable to secure a time slot, Jeong Yu-mi went on to accept a  lead role in the show Wonderful Mama.

With the news that DATV will be airing City Conquest, the question that fans are asking is will they finish filming the television series now that it will be broadcast. However, no details have been announced at this time.

Singer and actor Kim Hyun Joong is taking steps to leave the TV series City Conquest.

Since Kim has to tour Japan until March, he will keep himself busy as a singer. Kim is planning to appear on a TV series or a movie later this year. We are reviewing various scripts for him.

The initial plan was for the series to air in the first half of the year on KBS but the plan misfired. The production company for the series and KBS suffered from a conflict because of it.

However, KBS has denied this accusation and stated that the reason for dismissal of City Of Conquest is simply because of the drama is unable to meet the standard even after much editing. Besides of the inappropriate content to be aired on TV due to too much violence, but whether the drama will get a good audience response is the main reason.

Kim Hyun Joong and Jung Yoo Mi are the lead roles for City Of Conquest, the production fees have exceeded 4billion won. The drama started shooting last year in Japan and was originally scheduled to air on KBS2 early this year. Now that the TV station has decided not to air the drama, we wonder if Kim Hyun Joong will choose another drama soon?

However, KBS shot back that the claims were all false, responding, We held 4 drama planning meetings because of City Conquest, and had continuously requested the producers to improve the drama. However, the plan and the script submitted in the most recent planning meeting were still not up to par. The drama also contains excessive violence, and was judged to be unfit for public broadcast. This is why we decided that we would not air it. In a report we issued them, the fact that the drama will not be aired if the script is not up to par is clearly outlined. The producers have asserted that were being political, and they also used an expression that defames the character of one of the high-ranking names of the drama industry. We will take strict actions against the producers because they are saying things that arent true.

Media 100 added, “We tried our best even with extreme production costs and we produced the drama alongside the KBS subsidiary ‘KBS Media.’ We even gave them shares regarding the production. However, after the new CEO was brought in, a high-ranking drama executive was replaced. All of the sudden, we received the news that the drama would not air. We received the following message, “Although the contents of the drama and its profitability looks great, there is too much violence and it does not fit in well with the beginning of a new government.”

A representative of KBS’ drama department announced, “Media 100’s accusations are not true.” KBS also stated that the drama will not be broadcasted on KBS due to its violent and irrelevant content.
