Why? What's the point of that? Why would KBS release it already 24 hours before to streaming platforms? Is this normal?

I'm so confused.

I really have no idea. I never heard about it. Maybe they wanted to get Korean viewers excited because Mon & Tue slot is occupied by Record of Youth which airs at 21:00 KST. So Zombie Detective got a hard time. But that's just me speculating. I don't think something like that ever happened before. It's definitely confusing.

Yeah, this is unheard of. I feel like KBS has been really wishy washy when it comes to this drama's airing date. Fine, they've pushed it back several times and we settled with Sept 21. But then they or someone else airs it on Sept 20 instead? How come not even Soompi's news desk knew about this?


I mean they even released an article today that was based on other articles in Korea claiming the same thing. It airs tomorrow.

 

I just have no idea what's going on. Let's see if someone comes up with an explanation later.

 

Would be nice to know what this drama's airing schedule is for future references! :rage:

So I checked Korean news and it looks like every Saturday the Korean streaming platforms wavve and B tv will air 2 episodes exclusively and then the following Mon & Tue KBS2 will air the episodes on the regular timeslot on tv.

 

Why was it so difficult to let people know about this?

I checked on those websites which I usually use for downloading and nothing was found there, checked Viki too and nothing was there, checked on subscene, and there are Viu subs :crazily:

 

What is going on? Did Viu release them like Netflix was releasing Game of Thrones episodes by Mistake? :rubchin:

I have been actually waiting for this drama, and it would have been nice to know if something was being released early!

 

KBS executives, if you're reading this, let me tell you that this is NOT how you do it!  :smashes::kicks:

 

@booha The first episodes better be worth this fuss!

@partyon I read on mdl that it was released a day early on a site called Wavve btv. Supposedly you had to pay to gain early access. I think this is something that they regularly do? Someone must have retrieved the episodes and put them up for download. 

 

edit: Nevermind, it could have been Viu that released the episodes too early.

@kdramagrandma

Because according to KBS it IS premiering on September 21st. :D Please tell us where you watched the first 2 episodes. I'm sure @partyon and everyone waiting for their oppa to be back would love to know.

 

EDIT:

 

Apparently it aired on streaming platforms but I have no further info.

 

I never keep up with news update etc. Just watch whatever caught my eyes on the site I frequent. The drama was uploaded few hours prior to my first post. I was caught off guard actually because I did not know that the drama was already airing. I can share the site I usually use if I want to download new drama with sub (they already updated) but for the streaming site I actually used,  I am not sure if I am allowed to share it but if you scour kdrama or kvariety reddit site, you might find it. That was how I found it. As I am not directly sharing the link, I hope it is okay to mention the sites I use. :sweatingbullets:

Wavve

 Wavve is a domestic streaming site that KBS, SBS and MBC got together to start. So therefor they can reales drama before airing on TV.  Broadcaster do the same in my country reales their own produced program on their streaming site  24 hour before airing. :) I guess this is a way to jugle streaming and broadcasting for those traditional broadcaster so they survive the new landscape with online streaming sites. :)

@partyon  @Jillia   @Skyline  @kdramagrandma  @Sleepy Owl  @sal2

Gosh earlier there were articles about a joint production.  I guess I missed about this 2EPs-early broadcast (on Sat)  some place before airing it in Korea (M&T)  pufff

 

((part translation ))

'Zombie Detective' is the first original content collaborated by terrestrial-OTT-IPTV, and three companies, KBS, wave (wavve), and SK Broadband, jointly produced and invested. Every Saturday, two episodes are exclusively released on Wave and B TV, followed by KBS on Monday and Tuesday at 9:30 pm.

  • Jillia changed the title to [Current Drama 2020] The Zombie Detective, 좀비탐정 - Mon & Tue @ 21:30 KST

** Omg  it’s so funny  whahaha   PDnim is good. He knows how to turn around a scary zombie into a helpless comical one. :tounge_xd: 
However  the rating for EP1 is rather low. Maybe this drama isn’t for whole family

 

ZD EP1 ratings: 2.9 and 3.6 percent.

 

“18 Again” And “Zombie Detective” Go Head-To-Head In Premiere Ratings As “Record Of Youth” Holds On To Lead

“18 Again” And “Zombie Detective” Go Head-To-Head In Premiere Ratings As “Record Of Youth” Holds On To Lead

Two new dramas made their premiere in the Monday-Tuesday night time slot!

 

According to Nielsen Korea, the September 21 episode of tvN’s “Record of Youth” took the lead in its time slot with average nationwide ratings of 7.801 percent.

 

On KBS, “Zombie Detective” premiered to average nationwide ratings of 2.9 and 3.6 percent. “Zombie Detective” stars Choi Jin Hyuk and Park Ju Hyun in a comedy about a zombie in his second year of resurrection who becomes a detective to search for the truth about his past. The premiere ratings are a slight increase from the finale ratings of “To All the Guys Who Loved Me,” the last drama to air on KBS in this time slot.

 

On JTBC, “18 Again” premiered to average nationwide ratings of 1.753 percent. Based on the American film “17 Again,” “18 Again” stars Kim Ha Neul, Yoon Sang Hyun, and Lee Do Hyun in a story about a man on the brink of divorce who suddenly finds himself back in the body of his 18-year-old self.

 

On SBS, “Do You Like Brahms?” garnered average nationwide ratings of 4.4 and 5.8 percent. This is similar to its ratings from last week, when it also set a personal best.

OMG I've watched the 1st two episodes yesterday and hilarious drama. A handsome zombie btw. I wonder who he was. He woke up as a zombie in a coat. Pity him, he had to learn to be human again. And found a foundation that can cover his zombie skin...lol..

Alright, so I managed to watch the first 2 episodes (4 actually). I was really surprised, because the story sounded really stupid but once I watched it I couldn't stop giggling. :joy:

 

I'm gonna get the rant off my chest first though. Not feeling the FL. I have no idea why she's thinking that everyone is a pervert. She needs to take it down a notch.

Okay, so now to all the stuff I liked about the show:

 

  • I just can't with all of the references to The Last Empress. Genius! :D
    Tae Hang Ho and Choi Jin Hyuk played the same character Na Wang Sik in the series. Tae Hang Ho was the before he worked out like Rocky, and Choi Jin Hyuk is what he turned into.
    It was so funny when Tae Hang Ho's character said that he would look exactly like our zombie detective, if he were to lose some weight. :D
    Spoiler

    Talk about a believable transformation.... :D


    Also, Tae Hang Ho's name is Lee Sung Rok (the 2nd ML in The Last Empress was Shin Sung Rok). :D
  • The mix of genres is actually pretty interesting. It's hard to pin point exactly what type of genre this belongs to, but it's okay, because I am laughing all the way!
  • The cinematography and editing is spot on! I haven't seen this type of cinematography and editing before in k-dramas, so whoever is in charge is doing a fine job. Sometimes it almost makes me feel that I am watching an anime, which I think is the point of it. Nice job! :kiss_wink:
  • I've never seen a zombie's point of view before, and it's actually pretty interesting to see how he tries to fit into the world of humans.
    Every time he starts looking at a plump human neck, I can't stop laughing. :D I have to give it to him, being so tenacious and all with learning how to walk and how to use BB cream.

  • The rapping and the dancing. I never thought I would see oppa doing that. Hilarious! :joy:

Some logic has to be thrown out the window while watching this. Like how he doesn't smell and stuff like that.

Otherwise, I have to say that it's quite fun to see oppa do a role like this where he is challenging himself in a new type of role. He's so good in romantic comedies and action thrillers, it's nice to see him doing a comedy for a change. Glad that he's trying something else, despite knowing this won't become a huge success.

 

Also, I just really really really hope that the zombie doesn't eat the chihuahua.... :joy:
