Life Is Beautiful confirmed for an extension
Weekend drama Life Is Beautiful, written by one of Korea’s top drama writers, Kim Soo-hyun, has been confirmed for a 13-episode extension. That brings it from its planned 50 episodes to 63.
The family drama, which is filmed on Jeju Island, has been performing well in the ratings (from upper teens to about 20%) since its March 20 premiere. It has also drawn notice for its positive portrayal of a gay relationship between two male characters, played by Song Chang-eui and Lee Sang-woo.
This means that the drama that was scheduled to follow, Jang Hyuk and Ha Ji-won‘s upcoming fantasy-drama Secret Garden, will also be pushed back accordingly. It now premieres on November 13.
