According to KBS World's website, this series is supposed to start today, Saturday January 18, at 6:40 a.m. Chicago time. It says Episode 1 is on right now, as I'm typing. And the subtitled promo trailer gives the same date. But it's not on. So obviously there's some bad information out there. As soon as I find out when it actually starts, I'll post the information here.
Well I am embarrassed to report this but the series is not 60 episodes, it's 50. I had no idea. So it will be ending in two more weeks after this weekend. Forgive me if anyone was confused by what I've posted here all this time. Never suspected it--especially since the series doesn't feel like it's nearing the end.
