Now both dramas have been extended, Dong Yi for the second time. On September 7, a source with SBS’s drama department stated that Giant, originally scheduled for 50 episodes, will be given an added 10, and will now end on Episode 60. This means that the start date for the following drama, Athena, has been pushed back a month to December.
