Will Boys Before Flowers be extended?
Maybe, maybe not.
KBS is in talks with production company Group Eight to extend the massively popular Boys Before Flowers by two installments, bringing the episode count to 26. I’m sure we could see this coming — KBS hasn’t seen a Monday-Tuesday hit in ages and is eager to hang onto this one.
But some industry insiders think this is unlikely. Kdramas regularly extend their runs, but in this case, the (rather strict) contract with Hana Yori Dango creator Kamio Yoko was for 24 episodes. Contracts will have to be renegotiated with Kamio as well as cast and crew, so they are being careful not to jump the gun.
I don’t mind an extension, actually, since it’s not last-minute and gives the writer — admittedly, meh — time to plan. I wish KBS would give the crew a week’s break to catch up with production, though, before everyone collapses from exhaustion.
