The hit Korean drama series "Winter Sonata" that gripped Japan with a Korean wave craze after it aired on NHK will be re-aired across the island nation.
The Japanese sports daily Nikkan Sports said Wednesday that private broadcasters in Kanto and Kansai are preparing to air the sentimental melodrama series again from next month.
In the Kanto region including Tokyo, TBS will air the 20 episode series Monday to Friday at 10 am from January 9th to February 5th. It will be aired by Asahi TV in Osaka and the greater Kansai area at 10:25 am on Saturdays from January 13th.
TBS says the debut drama of actor Bae Yong-jun has been aired several times on NHK but the demand is still high and viewers want to enjoy it on terrestrial TV.
