According to ZakZak news, the production of the upcoming anime Winter Sonata has been delaying. Although the first episode will be aired on October 17th, the producers have completed only three episodes. ZakZak reported there should be at least five episodes completed before the airing of an anime.

An anonymous staff disclosed to ZakZak that a change of the director last June and the interference of the main actor Bae Yong Joon in the anime production have been a great burden for the staff.

The production committee of Winter Sonata admitted that they have changed the director and there are only three completed episodes, but denied the delay in the schedule and Bae's interferences.

It did air.

It looks that it didn't.


Fansubwiki says it did and dtshyk reported that they said there wouldn't be a delay, but if you said it didn't air, then I'll believe you I guess. If simply for lack of RAW's.

When's it going to air then?

No, it seems I just confused the airing dates. It did air after all. :)

Btw, can someone please tell me how Bae Yong Joon interfered in the production of the anime? Thanks in advance!

ZakZak said he didn't like the design of his character and asked the staff to change the face and the hair style.


Huh?

For serious...!?

And now, how much is it delayed by?

It was supposed to be aired today but now, it sounds like it won't be aired for another month or two as that each anime must have 5 completed episodes prior to airing and if they are going to change character designs, any completed episodes will need to be altered or remade. Perhaps, Winter Sonata will be aired in the winter like December..


It did air. They will probably just change the airing schedule, i.e. one every two weeks rather than every week.

I read the description on wikipedia and went T_T

This should be interesting, I always support childhood friends in these type of anime.

Ahh, damn the luck. This show looked pretty promising, too. I guess waiting won't be so bad, but only because I have a crapload of other Fall 2009 anime to watch this season.
