Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b In order to circumvent Korean laws that prevent commercial breaks in the middle of an episode, what would previously have been aired as single 70 minute episodes are now being repackaged as two 35 minute episodes, with two episodes being shown each night with a commercial break between them.[1]
  2. ^ Due to the 2018 Winter Olympics, the 2 episodes set to air on February 19, 2018, were pushed back and will air together with episode 3 and 4 on the following day.
