[HanCinema's News] "Arthdal Chronicles" Set to Begin Part 2 Among Uncertainty


"Arthdal Chronicles" was first pitched and promoted as being a story to be told in three parts, each one six episodes long. Now that the first six episodes have ended and "Arthdal Chronicles" is set to begin part two, uncertainty abounds as to whether the drama will be able to maintain viewers or whether they will take advantage of the break to simply give up watching entirely.

"Arthdal Chronicles" has been struggling with weak viewer interest ever since it premiered. The ambiguous setting and even the special effects have been frequent targets of criticism. Because the drama was pre-produced, there's no practical way for the production company to address complaints.

But even if such a drop is avoided this week, Part 3 of "Arthdal Chronicles" is set to begin in September, with "Hotel Del Luna" airing between parts 2 and 3. It is extremely unclear how many viewers will come back for Part 3 given current anemic levels of interest. It's surpising to look back and see that screenwriter Park Sang-yeon was discussing last month about the prospect of building this mythology into a tenth season. Such optimism, in retrospect, comes off as premature.
