Basketball serves up special pre-show documentary episode
By Dramabeans on October 12, 2013
Upcoming tvN period drama Basketball is set in a turbulent time in Korea’s history—Japan’s occupation in the 1940s, the independence movement, the division of the two Koreas—and while the era is fascinating, it’s true that we don’t see much of those years depicted in dramaland. So it’s actually smart planning, in my opinion, for tvN to schedule in a preceding special broadcast in advance of Basketball’s premiere to help fill in the gaps about what the time was like before we jump into the drama proper. This broadcast isn’t the same thing as Answer Me 1994′s Episode 0—that special was an introduction to the characters and relationships of that show. . . .
