Brilliant Legacy gets extended

A drama that performs well right out of the gate is a drama the broadcast station wants to hold on to, so it’s no surprise that SBS’s Brilliant Legacy has confirmed a two-episode extension. Currently halfway through its run, the series is closing in on 30% ratings.

Furthermore, a source from the production team said on the 4th that talks are still ongoing to add another two episodes on top of that. The drama was originally planned for a 24-episode broadcast, which means that it will now end with Episode 26, and possibly Episode 28 pending the additional extension.

The drama stars young actors (in order of photo) Bae Soo-bin, Han Hyo-joo, Lee Seung-gi, and Moon Chae-won and airs on SBS on weekends.

I'm not watching but I wonder if they are going to try to come up with something new for the additional 2 (or 4) episodes or will just not edit it as well. I generally find it hard to watch any drama with more than 12 episodes these days (one reason why I watch jdramas more often) so I often wonder why a story needs 20+ episodes to wrap up. But I guess their audience will be glad.

Well...BL changed as 26 episodes just right before its airing, so this article means it's going to be 28 eps, and possibly 30 eps.

I think BL actually managed the 30% (30.4%, I want to say) ratings this past weekend, but I'm not sure where I saw that.. Maybe Soompi?

As long as the writer manages to keep the pacing pretty consistent the whole way through, I'm perfectly okay with the extensions. I hope it doesn't fall apart at the end, though.. I'm really enjoying this show the way it is, and I'd hate for it to be ruined as a result of capitalizing on its awesome ratings.

On a side note.. While I'm totally in love with Bae Soo-bin's character and image (it's the EYES *_*), this drama and 1 Night 2 Days are making me fall in love with Lee Seung-gi the actor/singer/man. SO ADORABLE. Kind of weird, but adorable. :3

At least it's only 2 episodes more... I remember with the Queen of Housewives, although I liked the drama, it got draggy a wee bit, but thankfully ended okay.

I hope that the ending is well for Brilliant Legacy ^^

it was already slated for 26 ep even before the series began. im not sure if the additional 2 ep relates to adding on to 26 to make 28 or adding on to 28 to get 30. either way, im happy and hopefully they wont drag

and yea, it already broke 30%. it got a 33.4% last episode

Wow the rating went way up high..I'm curious about this drama seriously!!!
I haven't watched it but i will..Hope there will be no more additional episodes..
Honestly, i don't like drama with too many episodes..I'll get bored as soon as possible..I don't know why..It's just too exhausted to watch drama with many episodes..

As if 24 episodes aren't enough!
Even with the high ratings, it doesn't seem to get as much buzz around here. I'm not one to watch a drama due to high ratings ..most of the time it's overrated (heh). The storyline just doesn't seem THAT interesting. I'm kind of curious though.

As much as I'm liking this series, I really wish they'd stop will all the show extensions, and leave well-enough alone. I don't think I've watched a series yet where its benefited from extended episodes: it always seems to drag towards the end. Hopefully, this will be the exception... though I doubt it.

26 eps were by far enough, extending it so much will just hurt the pace, something I've liked about the drama. The drama isn't draggy to me at all right now, but if they're gonna start stretching the storyline then it'll be a pain. 28 eps is just silly.

And yeah sunday's broadcast hit 33% average, something even BOF didn't do so quick, hopefully this means BOF's "era" comes to an end.

Okay, for a drama with a simple storyline where you don't hear much buzz about, is it strange for it to be getting such high ratings?

I mean, I thought I was the only one watching this drama! No one else really seems to talk about it. But I guess it's a favorite?

Which makes me happy because I'm loving it so far and I'm so upset that everyone is already on episode 12 while I'm still waiting for episode 7. :( Dammit! I really need to understand Korean right now!

Yayy .. Im actually happy... I feel too sad when a drama ends. Are other people watching it? There really isn't much news about it. And I'm stuck on ep 8 because I can't find subbed episodes (no fault of the subbers though). Is anyone doing recaps? Just so that I know what is happening. I'm going to study more korean ... need to be good enough to understand dramas.

Anyway why am I thinking about this now .... History and Chemistry finals tmrw ... (why in the world would they put those on the same day?? :S)

The videos of Shiing inheritance were taken off and so Viikii is re-uploading the subs of the first 10 eps, hopefully all them will be up soon.

Eps 11/12 were lost in some server problem and the subs will be have to be done again by Viikii so the wait goes on, I still haven't seen the eps and 10 had such a good cliffhanger too:(

Since I am incapable of writing my thoughts in coherent paragraphs...I'll make a list...

- I'm also hoping the extension won't ruin the series. So far, the pacing is perfect.

-JB, from what I've read of your previous reviews and such, it seems like you might not like it in terms of the storyline, possibly? Then again, if you can deal with BOF, then you can definitely deal with this drama. I'd say give it a try, if you've got nothing else to do, but you definitely need to watch more than 2 episodes to get into it. :)

- I am ridiculously addicted to this drama, more so than BOF (which was an okay drama imo, but nonetheless addictive). I constantly check for updates every Saturdays and Sundays...and even watch it without the English Subtitles....and then watch it again.

I haven't started watching this yet, rather wait for all the subs to be available. I do like Bea So Bin in his historical roles. This would be the first time I'll see him in modern drama. I'm excited and looking forward to that.

You know- I'm reaching a point with this drama that I feel like it has already made so many jumps in the story I can't even imagine what else they are going to do with the characters if indeed it does go up to 28 or 30 episodes.

---oh and by the way you should be going on viikii for episodes if you haven't been able to find them anywhere else. That's where I have been watching them. Also mysoju.com (I'm surprised that some people still haven't found this site).

I adore this drama but why extend it? Why fix when its not broken? haha It's an amazing drama and extending it will not make it any better than it already is. Sigh.

Can someone tell me the make and colour of Han Hyo Joo's contacts/
I'm actually tempted to get her hairstyle. Shame I don't have the face shape for it.

Unfortunately Viikii seems to be the only one with eng subs for shining inheritance so you'll have to wait a few days, the subs were complete but due to the original videos being taken off the timing was screwed up, once its sorted out all 12 eps will be re-uploaded, just wait a couple of days.

And I agree about the chemistry between HHJ and LSG, Bambi eyes Oppa is great but the scenes involving HHJ and LSG are more interesting.

And I really like the relationship between her and her brother, the scene where she was thinking of suicide, and then her brother looked to her and told her how much he loves his "noona" was really touching, to me it was anyways...

I wonder if the Sat./Sun. slot has anything to do with the higher ratings in Korea. In any sense, I would watch this drama over "Good Job, Good Job" which is on the same days but an hour earlier. I started watching that (Good Job) but it was so boring; and what was the casting director thinking when s/he chose the lead men? One is a middle aged man practically and the other is, well - no comment.
Lead men draw in women viewers. What were they thinking?

I like the pacing of Brilliant Legacy and the story development. But I feel the relationship between EunSung and Hwan really hasn't developed, although the drama is nearly halfway through.
And I agree that the actor playing the autistic brother has been doing an excellent job.

i like the acting of the autistic brother, the wicked stepmother and the hapless stepsister.

lee seung gi looks like he's slowly improving as an actor. hhj's acting is painful. if she's not screaming, she's crying. her favorite facial expression is constipated.

i'm looking forward to the day when k-drama plots grow up and make sense.

I don't mind the extension. The drama has very interesting storyline and I hope the PD and the scriptwriter can add more plots to the additions.

Again, I would not mind to say I don't like the acting of both leads. Yes, I stay to watch because of Bae SooBin. But I got attracted by the other characters-- the evil stepmother, the stepsister, the autistic brother and the wise grandmother. They are a bunch of great actors contributing to the high viewership ratings. On the weekends the boardcasting company cannot rely solely the young fangirls watching their idols in the show. They need support from the adjummas and occasional male audiences too. It is the prime time for family entertainment.

I love how the plot develops with the evil stepmother keeps telling lies. She covers her [Read more]

24 episodes is more than sufficient for most of these dramas. I agree that in most cases, when they extend the episodes, it just gets draggy. I haven't watched this drama yet though it's on my list to. I'll wait to see any comments regarding the effect of extended episodes on this drama.

Each and everyone has their own impression regarding this drama and for me I like it so far...I can't hold my tears really with HHJ and his autistic brother scene... I don't know why but the child's acting was soo good on this drama... anyone should try watching it. This is the present drama that I followed-up out of curiosity, again, I don't know the casting since Queen of housewives ended...

@heycitrus

i totally agree that brilliant legacy tops bof anyday, esp in the acting department. i think one flaw of korean entertainment is that they always have these multi talents that sing act model. then again i'm chinese and seeing rainie or w/e and those other 3 girls that all act in like 20 dramas each for taiwanese drama is just PAINFUL. also wth is up with taiwanese drama always going for the corny humor- it's just not funny and i never watch t-dramas. like please not everyone is meant to do all three. aka kim hyung joon who i loooved in wgm but he is not a drama actor. the real life scenario in wgm shows his real wit and personality.

the show does take an episode or two to grow insanely fond of but it is totally addicting. for bof in the end i was chugging through just to [Read more]

I absolutely admire this Korean drama. I am a Korean speaker so I don't need subs. I think that Lee Seung Ki and Han Hyo Joo matches more. I love this drama. I am on episode 22 right now. They already had a kissing scene. Both of them are very bad at kissing. I mean...AWKWARD!!! I like the romance though. It was so sudden though. I guess they gradually fell in love. I like this drama because it is not so nonsense like some other dramas that I watched. Lee Seung Ki is so cute in this drama. I can't wait to see the last 6 episodes. Oh yeah... The sister, Seung Mi, is so evil now. I hate her. I feel bad for Jun Se. I hope that Eun Sung and Hwan falls in love so that the evil sister can learn her lesson. I LOVE THIS DRAMA..........!!!!!
