Popular drama Doctor Romantic (Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim) may be extended. Here's why...

Doctor Romantic's fast pace in an intriguing story that is full of memorable characters confronting crisis situations has already propelled it to above 20% in ratings with a healthy lead among weekday dramas in South Korea. The medical drama with romance is also among the Top 10 favorite dramas for international viewers.

However, the episode originally scheduled for Monday, December 26, will be preempted due to a special broadcast of the annual music award event known as SBS Gayo Daejun. Therefore, the production team is considering adding an episode to the series, so that the drama will end up with two episodes in its last week of broadcast. 

At this time, there is no official decision yet regarding the possible extension. Currently the drama is up to episode 14.

For Doctor Romantic fans, we actually wouldn't mind seeing doctors Kang Dong Joo (Yoo Yun Suk) and Yoon Seo Jung (Seo Hyun Jin) take some time off away from the hospital. They deserve it after patching things up from their traumatic experience in the past. There is no denying that they have an intense attraction for each other. An extra episode for them to enjoy a romantic date could work well for the extension.

It's also about time to see more side romance develop. Maybe Teacher Kim and the Head Nurse?

In the meantime, Kang Dong Joo and Yoon Seo Jung have become better doctors because of their experience working with the eccentric Dr. Bu Yong Joo (Han Suk Kyu), who is known as Teacher Kim. Trouble looms ahead, however.
