tvN’s latest Saturday-Sunday drama “Hwayugi” premiered this weekend with highs and lows.
After a strong start with its first episode, many viewers looked forward to watching the second. However, the second episode aired with numerous issues that resulted in the episode being cut from air altogether during the second half of its broadcast.
tvN issued an apology and announced that the re-edited second episode would be broadcasted on December 25. On December 25, tvN issued an official press release regarding the broadcasts of episodes 3 and 4.
After reiterating their apology, tvN said, “‘Hwayugi’ began filming at the beginning of October, and we are currently in the process of filming footage for the sixth episode.”
“We are currently using a system of working on CG [computer graphics] as fast as we can for footage that has already been filmed and edited. However, as ‘Hwayugi’ involves a lot more monsters and exorcisms compared to other productions, there is a lot of footage that involves high-level CG. The broadcasting accident occurred because the CG work for the second half of episode 2 took more time than originally scheduled.”
tvN announced, “We have decided to push back episode 4, which was originally scheduled to air on December 31. Episode 3 will air on [December] 30 at 9 p.m. and episode 4 will air next week on January 6 at 9 p.m. KST.”
