Blade Man cut short to 18 episodes
Blade Man will not have 20 episodes as originally planned. Instead, the series will end with 18. Low ratings have nothing to do with the abrupt ending. Sports play a major role in the KBS series's production team ending their run earlier than expected. The Incheon Asia Games preempted an episode from airing on October 2. Another episode was pushed back when the Nexen vs. Samsung baseball game aired in its place on Wednesday.
The King's Face's premiere date is quickly approaching, so the network has to complete Blade Man before the week of November 19.
Blade Man stars Lee Dong Wook and Shin Se Kyung. The story revolves around an angry man who has knives protruding out of his body because of his deep emotional pain. Shin's character Se Dong tries to heal his wounds.
