Ten additional episodes confirmed for Queen of Reversals

This isn’t a surprise, but more of a relief: MBC has finally come to a decision regarding the fate of Queen of Reversals: The series will now end with Episode 30 instead of Episode 20. Extension negotiations had bandied about numbers ranging anywhere from two extra installments to twelve, before settling on a final number of ten.

The drama had been hanging in limbo for weeks while broadcast execs tried to decide what to do with it. MBC had already dropped Birdie Buddy and found themselves without a suitable drama to slot in until their next (The Duo) would be ready to air next year.

Even so, MBC was tentative about Queen of Reversals being stretched to fill the time, probably because its ratings (10%-11%) have not been high enough that they would spur extension talk in normal circumstances. But these aren’t normal circumstances. (One senior executive had stated last week that the extension would be granted if the latest two episodes hit 17%. They didn’t, but the jump to 14% was apparently enough to sway them.)

This means Queen of Reversals will air through January, leaving The Duo — starring Chun Jung-myung, Han Ji-hye, and Lee Sang-yoon — to take over in early February.

What say you — will the five extra weeks endanger plot and slow the momentum, or will it allow more fun romance developments and time to build its viewership?

I have to admit, although I almost gave up on this show in the middle stretch, I recently caught up on the last five or six episodes, and now I'm TOTALLY ADDICTED. What the hell have you done to me, Park Shi-hoo??

I've been enjoying QoR since its beginning(have not seen QoH, so I can't compare the two), but it's gotten especially good, largely due to PSH. He's such a fun, funny, mischievous, and charismatic character, both in Prosecutor Princess and here in QoR. He brings a real shot of energy to every scene he's in, and he's so good in scenes with his assistant and Kim Nam-joo. His bickering scenes with them are great fun.

Another character that I really like is the smart and conniving mid-level manager boss lady, played by Ha Yoo-mi. I haven't seen her in other works, but man, she's so perfect in this role. True, she's a real b*tch, but she's so much fun to watch, isn't she?

Unless they can make a really interesting story involving the possibility of a romantic relationship between PSH and KNJ's characters

Unless they can make a really interesting and compelling story involving a possible romantic relationship between PSH and KNJ's characters...and not just more competitive stuff between the two teams...or more sniveling and crying on the part of her soon to be ex-husband...I still have really mixed feelings about a ten episode extension. The pacing of the drama has been good up to now; I hope that we won't see it slow down to a crawl as they try to stretch it out to cover all those additional episodes.

"Shame" on me? If you're going to criticize me, at least be RIGHT.

Ratings were 14.5% and 14.6% with Nielsen.

I wonder how they are going to prolong it. More challenges? Already those are getting boring. Maybe 2 more episodes, but 10? I do not know how the female lead is not aware of PSH feelings. The usual smart lady but not so smart in relationship. Sorry I do not see chemistry between her and PSH. She looks too old , and PSH is hot. Love the scenes with PSH and his secretary- they are hilarious.

I wonder how they are going with the story since they've added another 10 episodes. I would love to see Park Shi hoo's character romancing the main actress's. I am so excited about their potential romance. I am a sucker for these kind of stories: a younger guy falling for a older woman. By the way, the main actress is very pretty!

Thanks JB!

So basically MBC dropped the ball with not having the replacement show ready and we're stuck with another 10 episodes?

I guess on the bright side it shows some confidence in the show, though it would be nice if they didn't base their decision solely on ratings - too many good shows were cut short because they (the shows) didn't live up to some absurd hype and pull in a constant pull in > 20% throughout its run.

idk most dramas get an extension because the Tv Station has confidence on the show but in this case it feels that they didn't had other choice (although the 14% must have been a relieve). I love the show thanks to the amazing job of the main actors but i wish that they keep it as 16 or 20 episodes like planned.

now this extension news makes sense... ep 17 & 18 opened a lot more cans of worms which I worried 2 episodes would be insufficient to draw a conclusion for every thing. Now I get it... since they have 12 more eps (as of today) to work things out..... it's too sudden to deal with the work and relationships stuff in just 2 eps!

ahhh but PSH's character is turning slightly angsty now! I like him when he's cute, funny and bickering non stop with his secretary and Kim Nam Joo. LOVE THIS SHOW becoz of the characters haha! and Park Shi Hoo! I've made my claim on him since Family Honour hehehehehehe!!

I have watched some parts of episode 16 because of the comments.

I am hesitating to follow the rest...., am afraid of being ripped off of my feeling, emotion , time and energy, if PSH and KNJ don't end up because of the child.

Omgosh, that dance number in ep16. Who wouldn't give in to that?? Park Si Hoo is doing soooooo awesome as Yong Shik. Although i am a bit iffy about the 10 episode extension, i am not complaining about PSH eye candy. He just shines, shines, shines!

I must agree with Aya. Park Si Hoo is the always the answer. To everything. O_O

It seems that most of you are smitten by Park Shi Hoo and I fall for his charming ways at times, too, but maybe it's just with me who is actually looking for Jung Jun Ho & Kim Nam Joo to end up together. I'm on episode 7 and I've completely adored them as a couple. Their chemistry is amazing and I love their relationship...

It's too bad that I read that they've divorced. I hope they end up together though. I wouldn't mind if Park Shi Woo has some type of romance with Chae Jung Ahn (Yeo Jin).

The reason why you still like JJH and KNJ together is because you're only on episode 7. Give it time, he becomes quite obnoxious and disgusting.
