Kdrama “Cheer Up” will not be airing any new episodes this week!
On October 31, SBS issued a statement to announce that “Cheer Up” will not be airing this week following Itaewon’s tragedy. Out of respect to the mourning period and the victims of the tragedy, SBS will delay this week’s episodes to next week.
When will “Cheer Up” episode 9 air?
Accordingly, “Cheer Up” episode 9 will air next week on the 7th of November at 10:00 p.m. KST.
As previously reported, at least 154 people died in relation to the crowd surge incident that happened in Itaewon on October 29. More than 100,000 people gathered in Itaewon to celebrate the Halloween weekend on October 29, and due to a suspected overcrowding surge, many began to faint and many people died as a result of the incident.
The Prime minister of South Korea has since announced a national mourning period until November 5. Flags will be hoisted, and public officials and institution employees will wear ribbons. All non-urgent events will also be postponed as a result.
Stay tuned for more updates!
