A representative from MBC revealed that because of scheduling conflicts with year-end award ceremonies, they had to cut the drama by one episode. This will mean that instead of December 29th, ‘I’m a Flower Too!’ will conclude on the 28th.
Despite MBC’s explanation, many have protested the decision through the drama’s official website, claiming that it was disrespectful to everyone working on the drama to cut it so short. Fans felt that the real reason was because of its consistently weak ratings.
“I’m a Flower Too!” has had its fair share of problems, starting with Kim Jae Won‘s sudden switch-out due to an injury (he was later replaced by Yoon Shi Yoon). The drama was also affected by KBS’s ‘Man of Honor‘ and SBS’s ‘Deep-Rooted Tree‘, resulting in ratings hovering between 5 – 6%.
Fantasy drama, ‘The Moon That Embraces the Sun‘ will replace ‘I’m a Flower Too!’. It’s scheduled to begin airing on January 4th, 2012, and will star Han Ga In, Kim Soo Hyun and Jung Il Woo.
