JTBC‘s “Shinhwa Broadcast“, hosted by Shinhwa themselves, is to be off-air during the month of March to reinvent itself as a new show.
The show was originally forced to break for 2-3 weeks because JTBC will be broadcasting the ‘2013 World Baseball Classic‘ during its this time slot, but they have came to a decision to add an extra 1-2 weeks off on top of that. Why are they taking a break? To make format changes, according to the PD of the show, who said, “We’re going to take time to reformat in March for one month. We’re planning to return to broadcast in early April.”
Shinhwa is farmiliar with setting records, and they have set yet another record with ‘Shinhwa Broadcast’. The show has already become the longest program that one group has led by itself! Aside from this, the PD explained that the change is necessary – “For the past year, we tried various things, mainly targeted towards young viewers, but in the new season, we’re thinking of a format that can attract more range of viewers. Now that the show has had time to settle, it is now time for us to increase our viewers. So far, we’ve only shown you fun things. We’re now going to combine emotions and significance to become a variety program that has a special point.”
What kind of changes do you think will be made?
