The broadcast of Korean dramas was suspended last week as Korean citizens mourned over the tragic events surrounding the capsized ferry in Jindo that was en route to Jeju Island. It was with great sadness that those within the media and Korean entertainment community addressed the families of the missing and victims. In addition to the desire to deliver up to the minute news regarding recovery efforts, Korean television and the entertainment industry observed a period of respect for the Sewol ferry accident victims.

Cunning Single Lady is nearing its penultimate episode and would have concluded this week, but was unable to air on Wednesday and Thursday. Episode fourteen brought Na Ae Ra (Lee Min Jung) and Cha Jung Woo (Joo Sang Wook) closer together, as the startling reason for their divorce was finally revealed to Sang Wook. Cunning Single Lady delivered break out star Seo Kang Joon to audiences and provided INFINITE's L with an opportunity to return to K-Drama. HELLOVENUS bring their gorgeous vocals to It Is Love for the soundtrack.

SPICA provides the eerily soundtrack single Witch's Diary for tvN's Witch's Romance. The Monday-Tuesday cable drama is based on the popular Taiwanese noona romance My Lady. The drama kicked off with a strong story line, last week, and an unusually early kiss scene for a Korean drama. Uhm Jung Hwa is Ban Ji Yeon, a thirty-nine year old investigative reporter who is known as the witch by her co-workers at the tabloid Trouble Maker. She begins to fall in love with Yoon Dong Ha (Park Seo Joon) after an initially rocky start.

Kim Tae Hyun of Dickpunks sings Tears Fall for part two of the Angel Eyes soundtrack. Last week, Angel Eyes brought emergency worker Yoon Soo Wan (Gu Hye Sun) closer to discovering the truth about her past relationship with Dylan Park (Lee Sang Yoon). Big Bang's Seungri has proven to be a source of comic relief in the drama, as he translates the awkward maknae persona through the rookie 119 worker Teddy Seo.

The final original soundtrack choice is a Taiwanese drama, however the vocals of Korean solo artist G.NA makes the song quite unique. G.NA collaborates with Taiwanese idol Aaron Yan with the song Half for the drama Fall In Love With Me. Prior to Fall In Love With Me Aaron Yan starred opposite We Got Married:Global Edition's Puff Guo in the Taiwanese drama Just You.

Broadcast and cable networks have yet to resume normal full normal programming and have not announced how the interruption in broadcast will effect the K-Drama schedule for this week.
Although, this may be disappointing news to many international K-Drama fans, the outpouring of sympathy from idols is a concrete reminder that the majority of victims in the ferry accident remain missing.
