Surplus Princess cut down to 10 episodes
by | September 26, 2014 | 132 Comments

Sad news for fans of Surplus Princess: The silly tvN comedy about a mermaid who joins the human realm to find love has just gotten a cut-down in episode count. Planned for 14 episodes originally, it’ll now end with 10 instead, wrapping up its run early next month.

That’s a pretty sudden decision, especially since the drama just aired its eighth episode yesterday. That means the production is already filming its ninth episode… so they’ve only got one more episode in which to wrap up everything and reach some sort of resolution. (I suppose they could do the Vampire Idol thing and leave the show on a defiant note by ending with more questions than answersโ€”as if giving their broadcaster the big middle fingerโ€”but otherwise, they’ll have to scramble.)

According to a source with tvN, this cut-down order is actually a move to improve the show’s quality, because they felt that it would be better for “increasing dramatic entertainment and story quality.” Excuse me while I complete my eye-roll. I’m sure it has everything to do with creative vision and not, say, the drama’s sliding viewership ratings. While Surplus Princess isn’t alone in experiencing a dip in ratings (tvN’s current crop hasn’t been able to match the buzz factor or the numbers of its previous hits), it has not broken the 1% ratings barrier, starting off with a 0.84% and slipping down to 0.54%.

Surplus Princess is a bit silly for my liking, but it’s still an easy, mindless watch for me and I’ve found enough to keep me going with it despite the flaws. (It’s messy, a little meandering, and the heroine can come off rather dim.) But considering that this is a show that’s on once a week in a slot of its own, I’d have thought tvN would let it run its full course. Well, I suppose it could be the truth that this is really motivated by story concerns, but that’s not a bet I’d be willing to take.

The drama, which stars Jo Boa as the mermaid-turned-human and Ohn Joo-wan and Song Jae-rim as two humans who get entangled in her quest for love, will wrap up on October 9.

    Waah! Mary, four episodes less of Rim. Sadface.

      http://youtu.be/zq4n5mJvfNo Mary will allow a figure from history to interpret her thoughts on the matter.

      • 1.1.1 AmerHousewife

        Thank YOU!!! I am still chuckling. What a great job they did!

    That’s too bad; it IS silly but it’s been entertaining, although I think for a bunch of us the entertainment has been in large part how seamlessly the show unintentionally feeds into OUR meta with Mary and fish and Rim.

    All the actors, even the conniving female second lead, have been at the very least competent and at the best, truly hilarious. I know that I look forward to seeing many of them in bigger roles on better-supported dramas.

    • 2.1 nomad

      ๐Ÿ™ *sad face* *broken hearted over the news* I’m a recent fan of Surplus Princess. It is sooo silly, and love every bit of it. It intends to be funny and whacky, never takes itself seriously, and that’s why it’s such a fun time watching it. I can’t believe I’m saying it…but I love its mish-matched family even more than I love the family that is Reply 1994. And I loveee Reply 1994 family. hik…*collects broken heart all over the floor*

          Kim So Eun and Song Jae Rim are the reason why I decided to come back to We Got Married after years. These cat lovers are going to be an interesting couple.

          MARY, are you watching? Song Jae Rim biceps are driving viewers insane

      Sad news indeed.

      I checked out Surplus Princess just to see “who is this Rim that mary keeps raving about?”, and I’m now a complete fan!

      So thanks for introducing me to The AppleButt, and I look forward to seeing him again soon. In a leading role. ๐Ÿ™‚

          why did it have to end so soon?I was wondering why the 1st scene was different from its ending..totally heartbroken..huhuhu.. I really thought from the very begging that Rim was the male lead…arrrghhhh!!!! I’m an absolutely fan of this drama..I didn’t it lacking in anyway..to think that it only air every friday.. Like a week is too long for me to see the next episode..waaaaah!!!!! gonna miss Kim Hani.. I’m left with so many questions..why!!!!!???? this is m

    • 4.7 dumzkeeee

      i think as a consolation, they must make Hani and Shi Kyung end up as the couple! hmp.

    • 4.8 Widi from Indonesia

      Mary, don’t be sad. Everyone is right. Let’s watch him on WGM.

      I kind of liked him in Moon & Sun (the only thing I see him in). But then I saw him on WGM. He’s just so different! I like his real self better! (I know what people say about WGM being fake and all that, but I like the show so much I don’t care what people say.) And then I read YOUR RECAPS! Nothing can save my kokoro afterward. I still don’t know what jeob means (should I do a research? can someone just tell me what it means?), but I heart your Rim-love (this reminds me of the comment someone left for me on Facebook after I wrote Rim-butt; said it sounded dirty, which… not my intention!).

      So, keep jeobbing(?)!

  5. E.

    Im currently watching this and the plot moves so slow, that i found myself fastforwarding a lot of the scenes. I also have a hard time liking the Kim Hani.. I usually root for the main hero, but her character is so annoying and dumb at times that im like: “ughhhhhh grow up!”.

    But i still want to watch it, since i wanna know the ending lol. Plus its an easy watch, i just hope they wrap it up nicely

    • 5.1 KDaddict

      I know she seems dumb, but she’s a mermaid, and has only lived in Seoul for 3-4 weeks. How much can be be expected to know?

      For me, the problem w this show is the lack of screen time for Mary’s SJR, whom I thought was the lead, and it leaves us guessing if he indeed is, even at this late, 11th hour! There should have been more interaction between him and Hani.

      • 5.1.1 E.

        I know she is a mermaid, but in the first ep she had her own smartphone where she looked up stuff. So i assumed that eventhough she might not be familiar with Seoul, she would know quite a lot about the human world cause she had internet

        And yes! i also thought SJR was the lead.. Im disappointed, i do like the lead guy though, but i still want Hani and Shikyung to end up together

        • 5.1.1.1 Jilly

          She was mostly looking up food and kdrama. That’s not much of an education.

        • 5.1.1.2 Mrs. Jang guem suk

          And she a memaid half fish. fish =not to smart lol

          • 5.1.1.2.1 nomad

            I’m usually irritated by dim heroine, but I find her just so funny and I want to keep her in my pocket for being so cute. True! She’s half fish…3 second memory indeed!

    • 5.2 windsun33

      I can’t say I will miss this much. It is another show that “could have been” – but was not. As for Kim Hani – she is about the only character that I *DO* like. Yeah, she is dumb, but she is supposed to be – not like mermaids are really up on social trends ๐Ÿ˜›

      What makes the show boring for me is all the plot lines that are just silly and seem to serve no purpose at all, and add nothing.

      • 5.2.1 Spi

        The plot line is indeed a bit too lighthearted but the humor with which every scene is executed is exceptional. I don’t remember last time I laugh so much watching a K-drama. (Mostly irritated with frustrating story line where everyone refuses to speak their mind.)

  6. mewighy

    I’m sort of angry. I got really into this and now I know it won’t have a real, satisfying conclusion. There’s no way it could.

  7. Quiet Thought

    As spacey as this series is, it is a lot more watchable episode by episode than a lot of tedious dramas that have dragged on for twice its run. One never knows.

  8. MIKAN

    I actually enjoying watching this show. Sad news for me. ๐Ÿ™

  9. gogummaa

    WHAT?! I’m really watching this show. I’m waiting for its episode every week! It’s actually the only show that’s left on my current batch which i havent dropped! Well, the 1 episode per week alone is already hard for the viewers, it is also slow paced too. maybe that’s why many lost interest. But, huhuhu the show is picking up pace because the other love line is building but I hate this! :'((((((((

    i just hope they do something with the ending. a 4 episode cut is too much for a 1-episode per week drama -_____-

  10. 10 ...

    Well, ratings don’t lie: When half the viewers leave the ship, that means the Show can’t keep them… I actually thought it was supposed to be 16 eps. They really cut at the last minute though. With so little time left, the writer will pull his/her hair to write something satisfying that makes sense. Oh well, Song Jae Rim: Please next time pick a good project so I could watch you.

    • 10.1 harmonyfb

      Maybe with only two eps, they’ll switch it so that Song Jae Rim gets the girl? (Because that’s just not enough time to alter Ha Ni’s emotions, people.)

      • 10.1.1 mary

        I’m hoping for this too. T________________T

        Does Song Jae-rim have a curse? All shows he leads in will be 10 episodes only?

      • 10.1.2 Carole McDonnell

        If SJR gets the girl, I’ll watch. Not sure if they’ll do that. I really should watch this drama though. Been reading only the recaps. And am a bit sad that the show was cut, although i couldn’t bring myself to watch it.

        • 10.1.2.1 kooriyuki

          Me too! I’m not watching now because I’m afraid the other guy’s gonna be the end game. Gah.

      • 10.1.3 Thursdaynexxt

        THIS makes the most sense! (any justification to see SJR get the girl)

        They’re 90% into each other already so it’s half the battle. Okay, some might say that doesn’t leave enough “dramatic tension” for 2 eps, but they’ve still gotta deal with the fact that she’s a mermaid and she actually found Si-kyung’s phone in the first place. Plus, he already half-remembers her saving him from drowning (amongst other things).

        I say just connect the dots that are already lined up, and have the foodie couple get together!

    • 10.2 Aigoooo

      I am suspicious of the ratings. I think this show is more popular than they think. It’s just that it targets a younger demographic and they probably consume dramas differently (smartphones, laptops, etc.) that does not register in the ratings. At least, that is my theory. hehe

      • 10.2.1 Cyndii LV Kookie

        I thought so too! Surplus Princess is a lighter type of drama and I kind of expected it would be watched amongst teenagers moreso than young adults or adults themselves. I always watch dramas online – how do they register the ratings then? As in what medium would register into the ratings?

      • 10.2.2 Deb

        I wonder how (or how much) k-netizens reacted to this news.

      • 10.2.3 lariol

        I don’t think this is an issue…kpream-fans are very cognizant of what they need to do to buoy ratings if they want to… also most networks allow you to watch online and which will give them an idea of who and how many are watching … ^^ it’s the non-koreans watching online on sites that don’t have contracts to broadcast that are not being counted.

        • 10.2.3.1 lariol

  11. 11 Nana

    Ummm… dramatic as in me wailing NOOOOOOOOOOO?..

    I know it’s silly, i know people are upset cos one is not the real male lead, on top of that the girl is self centred creature but i love everything about the show.. her housemates, the parodies, everything (maybe not the Witch or those meanies) imma missed its silliness fun for real..

    I hope it ends with a splash!!!!

  12. 12 harmonyfb

    DAMMIT. ::lets expletives fly::

    NO! This is actually my favorite currently-airing show, because it’s so much fun. I LOVE this show! Whyyyyyyyy? ::stomps foot::

    • 12.1 samsooki

      I think it has to do with ratings below 1%….

        Stupid logic. ::kicks ratings::

  13. 13 pigsnout

    Noooooooo!!

    I liked the pervert mermaid, she was like Mary with a tail. Finally we got a heroine who was not a Candy and then the show gets cut? T___T

  14. 14 museofmanymasks

    Well this is sad. I had no expectations when it aired and was charmed by the very errr overt silliness that it had. It doesn’t have the same kick it started with (e.g. the outrageous parodies and music cues) but I was still enjoying it. I’m glad its not 16 but ouch–now it will definitely end in sad bubbles. Well it was nice while it lasted. Glad it introduced me to Oh Joo-wan who has such an adorable smile. As for everyone else I just love how game they were for all the madness, esp. SJR–funniest pimping of male love interest ever. And though the mermaid is dim, Jo Boa played her with aplomb. Also I was warming to Kim Seul-gi and Big’s romance-sad to see it cut short. Anyway, Kudos to the cast: onward and upward!

  15. 15 Sue

    This drama is nowhere near a resolution. Two more episodes and one was already filmed? WTH! 12 episodes who have made more sense. He’ll, I’ll take 11. The side stories will suffer the most. Boss lady and Witch Ahn? Gone. Big and noona? Maybe a quick get together without any build up. And how is our heroine going to realize that her crush is actually not the best man for her? This is going to suck.

    • 15.1 Waiting

      Agree!

    What will I do without my weekly dose of crack!drama? ๐Ÿ™

  17. 17 kara

    This is the only drama I’m watching this season, and I love it to pieces. I’m so upset.
    I loved the fish out of water elements, the relatable dilemma of tedious jobhunting, the adorable makeshift family of the surplus house, the supportive friendship between hani and hyeyoung, the gradual attraction between hyeyoung and big, the hilarious parodies and references, the craziness of the mermaid world, the absolute foodies that are shikyung and hani and so much more.
    Sigh, this show really deserved better. It should have been a two ep a week format.

    tVN why you gotta play me like that? ๐Ÿ™

    • 17.1 petmink

      I completely agree with you. This is the only show I am watching currently too. I love the humor.

      I am so sad ๐Ÿ™

    • 17.2 Kay

      Ditto!! Also the only show I’m following right now – every other show is giving me such a headache, and failing to deliver on every front, I went into Surplus with literally no expectations and came out rolling on the floor laughing because it was so ridiculous, and over-the-top and yet absolutely lovely.

      I mean what other show has a pervy mermaid obsessed with the males butt!!!!

      Man, I’m so sad and episode 8 was so awesome!

      • 17.2.1 Spi

        I’m watching various shows at the moment but THIS ONE is my crack drama of the entire year. It is so much FUN! I’m so sad :(((

  18. 18 Daphne

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

    I love the quirkiness and silliness of this show. Damn it! ๐Ÿ™

    • 18.1 skelly

      Me too, I’ve loved this show for the silly, funny thing that it is. And I think Jo Boa is playing the heck out of her dim, pervy mermaid – I will take her over these plastic idol girls any day.

      • 18.1.1 Spi

        Second that! Jo Boa totally nails it this time. I lover her in this show! I can imagine this kind of character can be pretty annoying but Jo Boa did it so well she’s so adorable and fun.

  19. 19 papillon

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. NOT MY SHOW.

    That’s terrible. I can’t even see how they could have wrapped everything up in 14 episodes, let alone 10. Things got started with everyone developing/exploring their feelings and they haven’t even gotten jobs yet!

    This is really disappointing. I didn’t expect this from TvN. I mean, yeah, the show’s kind of ridiculous and meandering but it’s fun and the characters are so cute and endearing and when it’s funny, it’s hilarious. Ugh, this is a blow. But at least it introduced me to a lot of good actors.

  20. 20 merylx

    NO I REFUSE TO ACCEPT THIS!!!! The pacing will be accelerated to the point of ridiculousness to fit any emotional and plot development into only TWO more episodes -there’ll be no time for the fluffy filler scenes which are one of my fave parts, not to mention we’ve only just had Ha Ni’s mermaid identity discovered!!!!!! Too bad the TVN ratings don’t include the popularity shows like this get abroad/on Viki as well as in Korea itself… -_-

    Allow me to add to the chorus of NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.

    Dang it! The Mermaid is currently my favorite drama airing right now, particularly because it is such a silly, fun romp. It’s been such a breath of fresh air. Not only am I going to be sad to see it go, but I’m going to be sad to see them rush to wrap it up now. Who knows what the ending will be like…. Don’t turn into bubbles, Hani! ๐Ÿ™

    Wtfffffffff this is terrible news ๐Ÿ™ our heroine has so much growth left to do as do our hero’s not to mention she’s got to fall in love with the lead in record time now, I didn’t even know it was only 14 eps that seems like a bit of a squeeze but now it’s only 10 that’s absolutely ridiculous.

  28. 28 eva

    This is just awful news! Wrapping up everything with two episodes (well, one)?!!! An there were all those cute storylines I was excited about! Though itยดs not a crack drama for me, I have been enjoying it a lot:( I canยดt see how turning everything into bubbles will improve the drama plotwise: thereยดs really not much going on and that tidbit there is needs some unfolding to do, so…really donยดt get it.

  29. 29 QT765

    Even though this drama is great,the writing is a bit messy & the plot is very slow when it could’ve been in a great pace. I just wish the ending is a good one because it was a slow drama

  30. 30 Aigoooo

    There’s no way they can tie up all the loose ends with just 2 episodes left especially since they are just now starting the love triangle. Hmmm.. I guess they can do an ending where all of it was just her dream and she never did turn human.

    • 30.1 bbstl

      Ugh, that’s what I’m afraid of as well. I love this show! So disappointing.

  31. 31 Thursdaynexxt

    Yes, the pace has been a bit slow – they’ve spent a lot of time on the jobhunting aspects, and could have kicked off the romance factor sooner, to hold the audience.

    But why, tvN? Waaeeee?!! I feel betrayed *sniff*

    It had some really unique stuff – really loved Hye-young’s food porn sessions and that ladykiller, takoyaki cook and man of many talents, Ahn Manyeo! Wait, why am I talking like it’s already over?

    Have there ever been any instances of them re-extending a show once they’ve announced they’re cutting its run time? I agree, 12 episodes would be perfect. Pretty please?

    • 31.1 petmink

    Wait wait wait nooooo whyyyyyyyy its good seriously nooooooooolpo ๐Ÿ˜ญ we should petition this

    • 33.1 Thursdaynexxt

      So funny how we’re all reduced to begging and bargaining for more episodes: “It should be 14 episodes! You can do it in 12! Okay, we’ll settle for 11…

      At least, I’m telling myself it’s funny… *reaches for another Kleenex*

  34. 34 samsooki

    The real question is this:

    Apparently it is fun to watch with plenty of heart (I’ve not seen it so I don’t know, and now I am scared to watch because it could all end abruptly without closure then I would be screwed if I’ve invested myself in this drama).

    If it is fun to watch with plenty of heart, then, why aren’t people watching it? INR3 topped 2% at one point, and certainly others have broken the 1% barrier.

    Just curious as to why other people aren’t watching…

    • 34.1 petmink

      Well for one, it only airs once a week and the first episode was cute, but it didn’t blow me away. It took 2 weeks to get going by then the audience left.

      Also, this kind of humor may be targeted towards a younger audience.

      Romance is not a big part of the show like other Rom coms.

    • 34.2 soprection

      It could be the time slot too. It airs one episode on Thursday nights at like 11PM, not exactly primetime. Plus while fun, it’s not the kind of show that has you chomping at the bit to find out what happens next (because it’s not really plot-driven) so it’s possible people aren’t watching it in real time but catching up on it later like over the weekend. That’s what I do but of course, I’m not in Korea and I have to wait for subs. I’m sure that’s part of it.

      • 34.2.1 Spi

        This show has a very quirky sense of humor, which I enjoy immensely, but I can imagine some people find it weird. And it airs only once per week, which is too little. For those who do not love it to pieces it is a bit harder to remember to tune in.
        I cannot describe how sad I am with the news…

  35. 35 Shaynanigans

    This is utter crap!
    What a way to sabotage a really cute and funny show!

    The only complaint I had about it so far is the one episode per week format that gives me so little time with Apple-Butt, Horn-Dog and the Lusty Mermaid.
    I want more dammit, not less.

  36. 36 dtp_jnr

    Add much as I like this drama, I do agree with them cutting it short….. Let’s be real there really hasn’t been any progress much in the story and I think it could be wrapped up nicely in 2eps if the writer knows what she’s doing…….

  37. 37 LizC

    2014 is turning into the year of the suddenly truncated dramas. (This is crazy, but mild in comparison to “Wild Chives and Soybean Soup” getting cut from 50 episodes to 22 right around the 19th episode.)

    That was actually the question I wanted to ask at the Dramabeans panel at KCON: What do you think is worse for a show, having the number of episodes cut, or having the number of episodes extended?

    • 37.1 Because of Reasons

      Coincidentally after I read your comment, I was checking out Tamra, The Island recaps this morning and came across this post javabeans wrote back in 2009: The Business of KDrama Extensions and Cuts – http://www.dramabeans.com/2009/09/the-businss-of-kdrama-extensions-and-cuts/.

        I could see extending by one or two episodes if your writers suddenly realized they didn’t leave enough time for a plot thread. But I think both can be terrible for a drama, both in the ‘whoops, it’s over but we didn’t finish’ way and the ‘crap, we don’t have enough plot left for another five episodes’ ways.

    What a waste. I had a feeling episodes would be cut due to low ratings but they just killed this show without mercy. Why not make it 14 instead of 16 or heck even 12 episodes? What writer could effectively wrap up a story this quickly. I was really enjoying this too! Blegh!

      Oops, I missed where it was originally 14. The humane thing would be to at least do 12 episodes then.

      I’ll remember not to get too attached to shows to low ratings in the future.

    I’m so saaaad! I mean it’s not one of my favorite dramas (by far) but I actually kind of liked it!!! It’s way better than Rain’s my lovable something!!! Sorry for those who like Rain’s drama but to be honest it’s too predictable and the acting is not so good.
    That’s what I get for liking the not so famous dramas with low ratings….. :'( **goes running to her room to cry**

    Where are my rom-coms????? this is the first time in a while that there aren’t good/somewhat good weekday rom-coms… I’m going to boycott someone somewhere!!! I NEED MY DOSE OF ROM-COM!!!!!!!!

    what am I to do now?????? They better do it right!!! I need my noona/deongsaeng, An Manyeo/CEO couples!!!! those are a MUST!!

    I absolutely LOVE this show. It is so much fun!!!! This is criminal! T___T

    I don’t understand the reason for cutting 4 episodes off…. I mean come on! There are people who really likes this drama. If the slip from 0.84% – 0.54% is the problem then I really feel sad towards the broadcasters…. If they don’t consider the feelings of 0.54% people then I don’t think they can handle the pressure of crossing the 1%. Loyalty matters. Viewers matters. Even if it is only 0.1%.

    I feel real bad for the show. It was such a nice “no pressure” viewing. I really enjoyed it especially Jo Bo Ah’s character.

    I feel really bad for the cast…..2 episodes is not enough time to wrap up the mermaid’s story, let alone the housemates’ side stories.

    It’s a good show and Jo Boa put in a really good performance, I hope she gets cast as lead again – and so does Rim (for mary’s sake!)

    I actually really enjoyed this drama! I know people are calling it silly but thats not a bad thing! I loved the light heartedness of it. It’s actually on of the only dramas I’ve been watching lately. For some reason I’m being really put of by the the drama’s this end of summer/beginning of fall. It’s starting to get a little better, since I’m enjoying Secret Door. But the uber dramatic romance drama’s like Secret Hotel and even kind of Discovery of Romance have really been boring me.

    But I’ve been in love with this drama and Hi! School Love On. They’re light and breezy and I’ve been digging it.

    Too bad. I really love and enjoy to watch this drama.

    Noooo! My daughters and I love this show. So cute and so funny. Cutting four episodes is too much.

    What?! This is so upsetting. I love all the light-hearted, weird, off-beat, cute, and funny vibes in this show. I was about to finally watch the eighth episode, when I read this and now I’m scared that I’m gonna have to deal with a really half-assed ending. This is the only drama I’m watching consistently every week… ๐Ÿ™
