SBS Postpones Action Drama Vagabond with Lee Seung Gi and Suzy For September to Align with Netflix Airing Date


There’s a change to the airing schedule which doesn’t surprise me because it was getting way too close for there not to be a concerted effort to promote such a big budget high profile K-drama. SBS is delaying the airing of pre-produced action drama Vagabond from the schedule May 2019 premiere date to later in September of the same year. This four month delay isn’t due to production difficulties but solely to align the drama with its contemporaneous simulcast on Netflix streaming. Money is king especially in the ever shrinking world of K-drama margins and returns so I’m not annoyed, the more money is made from these blockbuster material dramas the more it subsidizes the industry to go on. I am sad that I’ll have to wait another 6 months to see Lee Seung Gi back on the small screen, and wonder if his reunion with costar Suzy will be more sizzling the second time around.
