I recently read an article on Soompi stating "Doctors" was cutting close with script completion and filming. To be fair, I haven't watched the drama so I can't comment on the quality and pace. However, I thin cutting close with the script seem unfair for the actors. They have have to memorize the lines and get into character in such a short amount of time. I heard of other dramas where writers consistently change the script to satisfied the viewers. For instance, a friend told me in Reply 1988, the writer changed the love interested of the female lead abruptly because the viewers were angry. I personally think it's best to have dramas pre-filmed so we writers won't be influenced by the public's opinion. It's their production after all. High rating is important but so is quality and standard.
Were there any dramas you felt like the writer should leave it as is?
