I noticed that when there is more than one airing version/formats of the show, people get confused because of the number of episodes.

Let's take Queen of the Ring for example, those would be the 2 versions/formats
Online version TV version
Country: South Korea
Type: Drama
Episodes: 20
Aired: Mar 6, 2017 to Mar 23, 2017
Aired On: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday,
Thursday, Friday
Network: Naver TV Cast
Duration: 10 min.
Country: South Korea
Type: Drama
Episodes: 6
Aired: Mar 9, 2017 to Mar 23, 2017
Aired On: Thursday
Network: MBC
Duration: 30 min.

I wish we had something like this:

This way users know there are different airing version/format and they can add them to the list as such. It could also help in case of a Director's cut. e.g. Diamond Lover and Diamond Lover (Special Cut)

that would be very helpful. 
it would clear the confusion many have when it comes to dramas that simultaneously air on tv and online.

unrelated but is it necessary have pages dedicated to compilation episodes of dramas like goblin special: every moment of it shined or bts specials like strong woman do bong soon special?

For the specials, I actually suggested this before: http://mydramalist.com/discussions/suggestions/277...

OMG! Yes, totally forgot about that. Maybe we can have a option for both, if you watched both of them.

My biggest worry is that it'd become too complicated. People already have trouble with simple things, throw in different versions and it may be too much for some people to understand.

I think the user would only have to choose the version when adding it their list, so it would not be complicated. We could explain it in an FAQ thread or something. Personally, I think the relations are more complicated than this.
Moreover, if you think it would be hard to edit, we could keep it for staff to add, and users just choose the version to add to their list.
We would need:
TV Version
Online/Web Version
DVD Version
Different Cut/Director's Cut
International Version

I definitely think this is a good idea. I suggested this ages ago too.

It can be annoying & hard to track when watching something that has 2 different episode count.Seems to be the case with a lot of Dramas lately; especially web Dramas.

Oh, I did not see yours. Maybe the staff should merge it.
