SBS cancels drama series “Joseon Exorcist”

SBS has decided to cancel their drama series “Joseon Exorcist,” starring Kam Woo-Sung & Jang Dong-Yoon, after airing just the first two episodes. About 80% of filming for the drama series has already finished and SBS has already paid for most of the broadcasting rights. Nevertheless, the decision to cancel the drama series was made after heavy criticism was thrown on the first two episodes of the drama series by the Korean audience. The criticism was for the blending of real historical figures and its fictional story, combined with the heavy use of Chinese cultural items like food, clothing, architecture, and music as backdrops for the first two episodes. Due to the public uproar most advertisers had already dropped the drama series.

SBS has not stated what will follow the now cancelled “Joseon Exorcist.”
