SBS TV’s special drama "Trees in Heaven" will air across Japan starting from April.
SBS said on Mar. 7, "Fuji TV, a terrestrial network in Japan, will air the drama ‘Trees in Heaven’ during late-night hours on Thursdays starting from Apr. 13." Prior to this, BS Fuji, a satellite channel of Fuji TV, will broadcast the drama every Thursday at 9:00 p.m. starting from Apr. 6.
The version of "Trees in Heaven" that will be aired on Fuji TV and BS Fuji will be an abridged edition dubbed in Japanese. Its original version with Japanese subtitles will air on CS Fuji, a cable channel of Fuji TV, in July.
"Trees in Heaven" stars Lee Wan and Park Shin-hye and is the last of drama director Lee Jang-soo’s so-called "three-part heaven series," following "Beautiful Days" and "Stairway to Heaven."
"Beautiful Days" and "Stairway to Heaven" won high popularity among Japanese fans because they featured hallyu stars such as Lee Byung-heon and Choi Ji-woo.
To discuss Fuji TV’s decision to air "Trees in Heaven," the production team, including Lee Jang-soo, will give a press interview at the MultiTheater inside the head office of Fuji TV in Odaiba, Tokyo on Mar. 8 at 3:00 p.m.
