With poor ratings weighing heavily on its shoulders, SBS has decided to cut their losses on their period drama, Ja Myung Go which had been originally scheduled for 50 episodes. It will now be shortened to just 39 episodes and will end it’s run on 21st July. Replacing it will be Dream, a sports themed drama starring Kim Bum, Joo Jin Mo, Son Dambi, Julien Kang, Choi Yeo Jin, Oh Dal Soo, Chung Lim, etc. Dream was set for broadcast in September originally but SBS has decided to rush it and replace Ja Myung Go to revive the station’s flagging ratings on Monday and Tuesday nights.
SBS Dream is a story about a youth, Lee Jang Suk (Kim Bum) who spent time in a juvenile detention center for picking pockets, and his journey to be a top boxer after he was released, with the help of a sports agent, Nam Jae Yul (Joo Jin Mo). The drama has been claimed by sections of the media as the Korean version of Jerry Maguire although the plot of Dream is nothing like it.
Dream will debut on 27th July and filming had already begun on 18th June.
