Saimdang and Good Manager adds to the GMA Heart of Asia’s 14th year lineup

One thought on “Saimdang and Good Manager adds to the GMA Heart of Asia’s 14th year lineup”

  1. “Saimdang, Light’s Diary is a 2017 Historical Fantasy series was aired on SBS from January 26 to May 4, 2017 for 28 episodes.”

    There are two versions of “Saimdang, Light’s Diary” : (1) the SBS version that was broadcast in Korea, and (2) the original or international version that was broadcast via cable TV to several Asian countries like Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan, Taiwan, and in Hong Kong. While SLD’s ratings in Korea were poor, it was a major hit in these Asian countries, ranking either number 1 or 2, according to a Yonhap News Agency article.

    The SBS version is otherwise known to SLD fans as the “butchered version,” and it will be a grave error for GMA7 to broadcast the SBS version. From what I know, GMA7 bought the rights to SLD back in December 2016; this probably means that it bought the original or international version (which runs for 30 episodes).

    I’ve written spoiler-free synopses of SLD:

    1. SBS version (Ep 1-28) at https://campusconnection.blogspot.com/2017/01/saimdang-lights-diary-synopsis-by-episode.html

    2. Original or international version (Ep 1-30) at https://betterenglish-rx.blogspot.com/2017/05/saimdang-lights-diary-synopsis-plain-english.html
