We have both good news and bad news for fans of the ongoing SBS drama Pinocchio, starring Lee Jong Suk and Park Shin Hye! The good news is that three episodes of the drama are planned to air this week, but at the same time, Pinocchio will air its last episode this week as well.
Due to the SBS Drama Awards, the 16th episode of Pinocchio was pushed back to air in the following week. However, the drama is still on track as it has announced that it will air its final 20th episode on January 15th, this Thursday. Episodes 18 and 19 are scheduled to air back-to-back on January 14th, starting at 10PM KST.
Just this past week, Pinocchio topped the viewership ratings, competing against MBC‘s Kill Me Heal Me and KBS‘ The King’s Face.
In other news, the female lead of Pinocchio, Park Shin Hye, has been updating her Instagram account frequently with behind-the-scenes photos of the casts, bringing much attention with the actors and actresses’ close relationship.
