Sisid was first launched as part of GMA Network's "nationwide dominance" plug and was originally set to replace Koreana starting 28 February. It was postponed because Jackie Rice, who plays the main character, did not know how to swim (as required by the show); she took swimming training and lessons before taping any episodes. My Lover, My Wife suddenly took out the time slot that was originally meant for Sisid.
