JTBC’s Thirty-Nine will be having a one-week hiatus.

The 7th and 8th episodes will not air on their usual time slot on March 8th and 9th due to the broadcast of South Korea’s presidential election. Instead, JTBC will air a special broadcast titled About Thirty-Nine, which sums up episodes 1 through 6. As it became hard for the network to air the 7th and 8th episodes as scheduled, it was decided that the episodes would not be aired consecutively until next week.

Meanwhile, tvN’s new drama Kill Heel is slated to premiere on the 9th. Featuring Kim Ha Neul, Lee Hye Young, and Kim Sung Ryung, the show centers on the endless desires and struggles of three women who are blinded by ambition and jealousy in the world of home shopping.

While Kill Heel was expected to join Thirty-Nine in a tight race for ratings next week, the competition has been postponed to March 16th due to the brief cancellation of Thirty-Nine. Many are paying attention to how the one-week hiatus would affect the viewership ratings for the two shows.

Thirty-Nine will resume its run on the 16th.
