The new drama series City Conquest, which stars Kim Hyun Joong, will not air on the three major TV channels in Korea (KBS, MBC, and SBS).

On December 14, a staff member from the Drama Department in KBS reported, “KBS has recently decided not to air City Conquest.”

The staff member said, “Media Baek, a production company of City Conquest, recently expressed its intention to air the series on KBS. We’ve considered it from various angles, but we thought the series doesn’t suit KBS and declined it.”

Some of officials from the broadcasting industry say, “The production company of City Conquest has also expressed its intention to air the series on MBC and SBS, but the TV stations have decided not to schedule them to air on their channels. The reason is that the content and the production cost of the series are not acceptable for the major TV channels. As far as we know, the shooting of the series has been stopped.”

City Conquest is an action drama series about Baek Mir (played by Kim Hyun Joong) taking revenge on the society that has ruined him and his family.

The series has attracted a lot of attention by starring Kim, Jung Yumi, Nam Goong Min, Kim Seung Woo, Kim Young Ho, Kim Hee Won, Park Hyo Joon, and Choi Chul Ho.

  4. Feeling devastated. Was so looking forward to this drama. I wonder what it was about the content that was unacceptable. What happens to the $10 million the production company received from overseas networks who wanted to air it? Aaaagh! Can anything be done?

  6. Something fishy I smell ...Aren't they practicing a form of TV censorship right there ,or politics? What's going on? Another first in Kdramaland that TV stations decline to show a drama? Unbelievable!

    Where's Anthony? Perhaps he could help.

  8. It smells like a skunk. Whether it is politics, rivalry or competition. KHJ will prevail, no matter how his competitor try to stop him. He needs all his fan support at this moment.

  9. Everything happens for a reason and maybe something better is coming for him yes I know is heartbreaking after he said was working so hard to play Baek Mir in the right way but I have hopes he has shown since his time in SS501 and then his solo debut the great artist he is, whether to continue with CC or with another drama I'm sure this will be resolved at his favor
    CC was the only Kdrama I was interested to see so on another no thanks I pass, I know there are good but I'm only interested in this drama in particular, I don't want to say something that I'm not sure or criticize these three channels they have their reasons and is respectable but I think they lost a great opportunity to show at their audience something different from what they are accustomed but hey I'm sure that Hyun Joong will continue achieving success with Unlimited that is going well and his upcoming concerts in Japan, I'm sure 2013 he will receive more blessings and success in every project he is working
