SEOUL, March 29 (Yonhap) -- South Korea's major TV network said Tuesday it has made three special broadcasting programs for devoted fans of its sensational drama series "Descendants of the Sun" as the show's finale draws near.

The programs will be aired at 10 p.m. for three days from April 20 for the drama's devoted fans, the broadcaster said.

Watchers will see a compilation of the drama's major scenes on April 20-21 and a behind-the-scenes program showing the drama's filming process with interviews with the cast and crew on April 22, it said.

Premiered both in Korea and China on Feb. 24, the tale of romance between a South Korean special forces captain and a volunteer doctor in the fictional war-torn country of Uruk is scheduled to end on April 14.

For the new broadcasting schedules, KBS delayed the premier of "Master: God of Noodles," the succeeding series on the Wednesday-Thursday 10 p.m. time slot, from April 20 to April 27.

"Descendants," starring actor Song Joong-ki and actress Song Hye-kyo, became the first South Korean drama shown on weeknights to surpass 30 percent in nationwide viewership in four years.

In China, the show has scored over 1.5 billion cumulative views on iQiyi, a Chinese video web platform, on the 10 episodes so far released.
