The eighth episode of the SBS drama "The Penthouse" did not air as originally planned on November 17th due to a football game. On that night, the South Korean national football team was set to play a friendly match against Qatar. South Korea was ultimately victorious in the match-up by a score of 2-1. It was unclear whether the game would go on as planned following positive COVID-19 tests from the South Korean team's staff.
The match took place in Austria during the daytime, consequently overlapping with the normal broadcasting time for "The Penthouse". On the Monday night broadcast of the seventh episode "The Penthouse" broke its own record with ratings of 14.5%. The eighth episode will air on November 23rd. "The Penthouse" deals with the shocking and often violent and social class linked struggles between the parents of aspiring opera singers.
