The director of MBC TV drama The Moon Embracing the Sun has recently announced that he is joining the MBC general strike that has been going on for five weeks, the normal broadcast of The Moon Embracing the Sun may be affected.
According to informed sources, PD Kim Doh Hoon told the production team crews that he is also joining the strike after finishing the filming for The Moon Embracing the Sun on March 5th, 2012, and he indicated that he is attending the union strike rally held at MBC TV on March 6th, 2012. Before PD Kim Doh Hoon, the CP Oh Kyung Hoon from the production team of The Moon Embracing the Sun has already joined the strike. This time, even the Kim Do Hoon who is the director also joined the strike, the normal shooting of The Moon that Embraces the Sun will inevitably be affected.
According to a crew of The Moon that Embraces the Sun (TMTETS), although in order to try to avoid TMTETS from been affected by the strike, MBC has divided the production team to two A and B team for shooting, but the script of episode 20 has just recently completed on March 5th, 2012, thus in any case it’s impossible to catch up the normal broadcast progress in the absence of the director.
It is learned that the directors of most TV series currently broadcast on MBC will also taking part in the strike. Therefore, in addition to TMTETS, there will be many MBC dramas that may not be broadcast as normal.
