“Descendants of the Sun” is set to air in Greece.
The Korean Embassy in Greece announced that TV100, a non-state Greek TV channel from Thessaloniki, will begin airing “Descendants of the Sun” from December 7.
The series will be spread across 19 weeks, with three special episodes of staff interviews and behind-the-scenes footage added to the original 16 episodes. The drama will run in the primetime slot of 9 p.m. every Wednesday, with reruns at 4:30 p.m. on Sundays. The drama will also be available in all other areas of Greece and Cyprus on cable.
This is not the first time TV100 is broadcasting a Korean drama, showing popular series like “Jewel in the Palace” and “I Miss You” back in 2013. Since then, the TV channel has been working closely with Korean broadcasting companies like EBS and MBC to co-produce documentaries.
TV100 is expecting “Descendants of the Sun” to do well as the drama combines a variety of genres like romance and action, as well as the fact that many scenes were shot in popular Greek tourist locations like Zakynthos and Arachova.
Ambassador Ahn Young Jip of the Korean Embassy in Greece stated, “We hope that cultural exchange between Korea and Greece will deepen with the broadcast of ‘Descendants of the Sun.'”
Although the drama has already aired in countries like China, Japan, and the Philippines, this will be the first time it airs in Europe.
