“Endless Love” Cut Down to 37 Episodes


SBS weekend drama Endless Love’s” final broadcast date has been moved up.

On October 14, a broadcast representative told OSEN via phone “‘Endless Love’ was originally planned as a 40-episode series but will finish at 37 episodes. The production company alerted the cast and staff late at night on October 13 about the earlier finish for the series.”

After the conclusion of the 2014 Incheon Asian Games, the production company and broadcast company changed the date of the final broadcast and discussed it with the cast and staff. Eventually the final broadcast date was pushed up, and there is a rumor that the cast and staff couldn’t hide their disappointment that certain stories had to be reduced or eliminated. A representative stated “The cancellation of the program during the Chuseok holidays was one of the many reasons for the decision.”

“Endless Love” will finish filming on October 24 and the last episode will be aired on October 26, ending with Episode 37.

“Endless Love” started airing on June 21 with a great cast in Hwang Jung Eum, Ryu Soo Young and Jung Kyung Ho. Despite the great cast, the drama didn’t garner good ratings during its run.

“Endless Love” will be followed by “Birth of a Beauty,” starring Han Ye Seul and Joo Sang Wook, and will premiere in November.
