Due to the upcoming Rio Summer Olympics, KBS 2TV’s Monday-Tuesday drama “Beautiful Mind” may end sooner than expected.
On July 20, a source from KBS states, “We are currently considering special programming for the Rio Olympics internally. The reduction of episodes for ‘Beautiful Mind’ is still being discussed. We have not yet reached a final decision regarding ‘Beautiful Mind’ ending earlier.”
A source from the producer of the drama, Raemongraein, confirms that they know about KBS considering many plans regarding the Olympics, but says, “We have yet to receive any information about ‘Beautiful Mind’ being shortened.”
Earlier this day, one news outlet reported that the drama would end earlier than originally planned with a fewer number of episodes, giving similar reasons to what KBS has revealed.
Meanwhile, “Beautiful Mind” premiered on June 20, and has been averaging 3-4 percent for viewership ratings.
