tvN Sageuk Drama Asadal Chronicles Scheduled for Broadcast in Seasons Like US Shows


Filming is still underway for the fully pre-produced upcoming tvN sageuk drama Asadal Chronicles with Song Joong Ki, Kim Ji Won, Jang Dong Gun, and Kim Ok Bin and its clear the production team is mapping out a new strategy. K-ent is reporting that Asadal will be broadcast in “seasons” which is how US shows air, and also how the Netflix produced K-drama Kingdom is structured as. Kingdom aired a 6-episode chunk last month and season 2 filming is underway with the ending of episode 6 a total cliffhanger moment. The goal for Asadal is to air the first season and use it to build connected IP offerings such as anime, VR, and other ancillary products connected with the drama. This sounds interesting and I’m game for a new airing format to shake things up.
