In a statement, the broadcast network revealed that the sudden changes were because of the volleyball semifinals at the most significant sports events. 

"The 9th episode of 'Penthouse 3' will be broadcast as soon as the broadcast of the women's volleyball semifinals at the Tokyo Olympics is over," SBS explained as obtained by a local outlet. 

Instead of its usual 10 pm time slot, the upcoming show will have a slight change in broadcasting, depending on the Olympic programming. 

To recall, this is not the first time that the mega-hit revenge drama has been affected by the annual ceremony. 

The airing of "Penthouse 3" episode 8 was also delayed and postponed for a week to give way to the ongoing sports event. 

At the time, the SBS program re-scheduled its airing from July 23 to the 30th, causing the Friday night drama to go on a one-week hiatus. 

Apart from this, "Racket Boys," "Revolutionary Sisters," Hospital Playlist 2," and other variety shows were affected by the 2020 Tokyo Olympics ceremony.
