MBC’s upcoming drama “20th Century Boy and Girl” has halted and postponed filming.
On September 4, a source from the production company said, “Starting today filming has ceased due to the [MBC] strike. Future filming schedules have yet to be determined.”
“20th Century Boy and Girl” starting filming in mid-July and is scheduled to air on September 25 following the end of “The King Loves.” The drama has finished filming approximately four episodes as of now. However, the drama’s broadcast schedule could experience issues depending on the strike.
