It looks like the SBS drama Saimdang Light’s Diary starring Lee Young Ae and Song Seung Heon has had its number of episodes cut down from 30 to 28. Fairly early on in it’s run, additional edits were made and the pacing of the drama was accelerated. This could be a contributing factor if that resulted in a lack of footage towards the end.
The drama has brought in decent ratings, but they have fallen week to week throughout its run. Which is overall a disappointment since it was the highly anticipated comeback drama for Lee Young Ae. So as of now, Saimdang Light’s Diary is scheduled to conclude on May 4.
Saimdang Light’s Diary is about an art history lecturer (Lee Young Ae) who finds the diary of the famous historical figure Shim Saimdang and works to discover the secret behind a mysterious portrait.
Saimdang Light’s Diary airs Wednesday and Thursday on SBS.
