KBS 2TV, the Korean TV network which airs the hugely popular TV series Descendants of the Sun, has confirmed that there will not be an extension. This will probably break the hearts of Korean drama fans all around the world.

The Chinese government though will probably heave a huge sigh of relief, as had recently warned of the social ills of binge viewing the Korean TV drama. The Ministry recently posted on Weibo, “Watching Korean dramas could be dangerous, and may even lead to legal troubles.” Wonder why they didn’t ban Korean Dramas in China? Much like what they did to Facebook and Google (kidding of course). By the way, something totally random, the Asian Television Awards is now also available on Weibo!

Back to the main point. So what’s all that hype about?
