My personal thoughts- by Jass K.
Well… This could end up being a good decision or bad depending on the plot. “Penthouse 2″ was very crazy but we started to see cracks and it began to become ‘predictable’ in the sense of what type of ‘plot twists’ the screenwriter used.
If its better for the work environment and the overall quality of the show, one episode weekly is the way to go, other kdramas have done this to varying degrees of success. The only possible issue with this decision that I can think of [for the drama] would be how much it gives fans more time to ponder over plot twists and events.
When they scale down the episodes count, we won’t be as bombarded as we usually are, because each episode has so much going on that it can be overwhelming at times, with one episode airing weekly, the screenwriter has the difficult task of keeping things very interesting and to a degree keep them logical as well.
The issue that I saw with season 2 was how certain character development arcs were abandoned altogether and brought back to ground zero illogically. I have no doubt the next season will be successful but it remains a mystery whether it’ll surpass the other seasons or not. I hope that with this in mind, they reduce the episodes count, the reports allege it’ll be either 11 or 12 [not confirmed], but that is still too long in my opinion, I don’t see how the drama deserves 12 more episodes, 6 compact episodes shall do the trick.
