YAMD staff said, “At first, the drama was going to end at 120 episodes in the middle of November. After that, 20-30 episodes were added to end in the middle on December but another 10 episodes were added for an ending late December.”
Another staff confirmed this and added, “We decided on this because we wanted the daily drama after YAMD to start exactly on January first of 2009. Also, YAMD is starting to pick up on its ratings.” It is hard for producers to start another drama at the end of a year because of end-year specials and award ceremonies.
YAMD will be the last daily drama of 2008 by KBS 1TV and the daily drama that will start in 2009 will be the work of “Likable Or Not”s Moon Bo Hyun PD.
YAMD, which first aired on May 5th, got lots of attention due to castings of Yoona, Park Jae Jun, Lee Ji Hoon, and other New generation Stars. Lately, YAMD has been getting ratings of over 30%. It is because Saebyuk (Yoona)’s adoption has been confirmed and the trip to Russia.
YAMD has been keeping its pace even during the 2008 Beijing Olympics and continuing the success of past daily dramas.
