Nothing will be taking over I'm Not a Robot's slot for the time being.

MBC, the network behind Yoo Seung Ho's new rom-com series, made the big announcement today that they plan to postpone any new programs for a month and half. While weekend shows Money Flower and Man Who Sets The Table are scheduled to continue airing, the week is soon going to to be filled with the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics coverage until the middle of March. Sports fans can start enjoying Olympics on a daily basis at the end of the month when I'm Not a Robot and Two Cops complete their run. 

MBC representatives insisted in a recent statement that they are doing their best to bring quality programming to viewers. “Instead of rushing to meet our schedule by hurriedly introducing our dramas, we preferred to make our preparations slowly and present our works when they are polished and fully complete. As a result, we had no choice but to push back the programming for our new dramas," the company honestly admitted.

In South Korea, the unique series I'm Not a Robot isn't enjoying high ratings like its receiving overseas (here on DramaFever, for example). In order for MBC to get everyone excited for the next show, they plan to regroup and find a production that the masses will be drawn to. I'm Not a Robot has a cable series feel with casual language and more of a spotlight on romance. Even though Yoo's character, Kim Min Kyu, still thinks Jo Ji Ah (actress Chae Soo Bin) is a robot, their on-screen chemistry is realistic enough to propel dating rumors for the pair in real life.  

Will you miss MBC shows for the rest of the winter? What genre are you anxious to see this spring on the network?
