SBS Monday-Tuesday drama “Scarlet Heart: Goryeo” will be airing director’s cuts of its first three episodes.
On August 31, a source from SBS told OSEN, “For the ‘Scarlet Heart: Goryeo’ reruns on [September] 3, we will air director’s cuts for episodes one to three.”
It looks like this decision by “Scarlet Heart: Goryeo” is in response to viewer criticisms that the first two episodes were incoherent and difficult to understand. Through airing the director’s cuts, “Scarlet Heart: Goryeo” seems to be trying to reengage viewers, as the drama’s ratings have not lived up to the high anticipation leading up to its premiere.
What are your thoughts on the drama’s decision to air the director’s cuts?
