Extension pending for Queen of Housewives


Oh Ji-ho, Kim Nam-joo

After Boys Before Flowers left the air, MBC’s Monday-Tuesday drama Queen of Housewives [내조의 여왕] shot up in the ratings, where it currently resides in the 22%-25% range. Not about to let a popular and well-received show go easily, MBC is looking to extend the drama.

One rep from the production team said, “Based on the viewers’ positive response, we decided to extend the broadcast run. At first, we considered a two-episode extension, but now we’re looking into adding another week for a four-episode extension.”

The final result is to be decided between the production company and MBC, and the two parties will enter meetings this week to hammer out the details.

No complaints from the stars, who are all enjoying a rise in visibility. Naturally the lead stars Kim Nam-joo and Oh Ji-ho are getting lots of attention, as well as Lee Hye-young playing the sly corporate wife and Choi Chul-ho as her stern husband. But the upswing has been most dramatic for Yoon Sang-hyun, the playboy-ish curly-haired CEO, and Sunwoo Sun, who plays his neglected wife (who also recently came out about her real age), who were the least-known at the drama’s outset. Yoon had small roles in lesser-watched dramas (Three Dads One Mom, Fireworks) while Sunwoo is still a rookie.

I’m behind in watching this drama but still onboard, as long as it remains funny and lively. An extension works for a pleasant, engaging show like this, so there probably won’t be many difficulties in making it happen.

Since I really like this drama, I really dont mind an extension. But sometimes I hope they dont without dragging it or something.

I'm always really scared whenever the production companies announce an extension, because so far, all of them dragged the drama along.

However, hopefully(as you said) since this is a light-hearted drama, I'm hoping that some of that awful dragging of drama scenes won't happen -___-;

Hehe, thanks for your continuous updates :]

Agree with those above... let's keep up the momentum and the fine balance between comedy and melo that this series is doing pretty well in maintaining so far.

this drama was really a pleasant surprise, all the characters are loveable in their own ways and the actors do a fantastic job portraying them. especially kim nam joo and choi chul-ho. but my favorite remains to be yoon sang-hyun. i really want a taejoon-jiae ending but i somehow doubt so. haha i'm glad the drama is doing well though :)

Quite rare to see 6 actors and actresses equally balanced in their acting skills for their respective roles in one drama. I have only gone through 5 epis and my, my, Oh Jiho is starting to grow on me. I was not impressed with his acting ability in Fantasy Couple but boy, he is showing marked improvement here. I am still waiting impatiently to see how Choi Chul-ho's character will develop.

I can see the next 3 epis are going to be cliff-hangers for me. So I will be a happy camper till ep 8. By tonight, MBC would have aired 12 epis. Like everyone before my post, I hope they don't drag the last 4 epis out. My opinion of the drama kinda wavers when the cliff-hanging experience dies off.

"MBC... Queen of Extensions"!!!!
whatever, they LURVE to extend all of their high-rated dramas, but when it comes to good dramas with humble ratings, they don't!!!!

Choi Chul-ho is by far my favorite one among them!!! loved him the most in Empress Chun Chu, so I feel a little bit weird to see him like this in this drama (a major change from a crazy bearded king to a total hottie ;) )

I've been always thinking twice about dramas that are planning to add more episodes, which is either to make the drama more exciting or to break the good raves that a drama has started, I'm enjoying QOH so far but I hope it won't drag if ever this extension will push through

This drama really quite nice.
I've been watching it for a while, trying to catch up on the episodes thus far. But i like it. The part that has me a little in shock is what the Presidents wife is doing. I remember that she told her husband that she was going to have an affair so that he knew what betrayal was. And after all she's been through knowing about her husbands affairs you would think she would stop and think of the pain she would be causing the other person. >_<
But anyway, so far so good. I like this drama.
Bye Y'all

So far I like this drama very much so no problem for extension.I like Sun woo sun and all the cast here even though I don't know them from the start. It is better though that I don't know them so no bias in judging their acting.Hope episode 11 and 12 uploaded already with subs ...this is one way of relaxing myself after my 3 or 4 longdays/week work.

I'm currently watching this drama and so far I like it. At first, I was kind of negative about it. The actresses doesn't impress me. "Why are they all ahjummas?" But maybe because I'm more used to watching dramas that stars younger and prettier lead actresses. However, as I watched it, I overlooked at that and enjoyed the storyline. If you get the chance to watch this, I bet you'll fall in love with Chun Ji Ae and Tae Bong's relationship. I'm still anticipating on what will happen to them! =)

But anyway, I want to recommend this to anyone who is need of a new Korean drama to watch. (Especially after BBF.)

I'm from Puerto Rico an island in the Caribbean from where (Ricky Martin's and Jennifer Lopez are) and we watch soap operas from other countries like Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela and Brazil, and Korean soaps are new to us, but the Public Channel is transmitting them, and since them I'm hooked, but Queen of Housewives has stolen my attention, funny , and Yoon Sang Hyun has stolen my heart, I love the way he acts and smiles and love his voice when he sings even when I don't understand a word. I know 2 years have past since the success of Queen in Korea but I had to let you know that we really enjoy it now.
