The side of MBC said that the news of 4-episode extension for Wednesday and Thursday drama series The Moon Embracing the Sun (The Moon that Embraces the Sun) is an unfounded rumor.

A head of MBC TV series department, Lee Dae Young, flatly rejected the news through Ilgan Sports on January 30th, 2012, “The news of extending the run of The Moon Embracing the Sun is nonexistent. Because of recent strike incident, it’s terribly busy within the company, so there is no discussion about the extension at all.” The production company The Pan Entertainment also said, “Until now there is no discussion about the extension yet.”

Earlier, media has reported that The Moon Embracing the Sun is planning for 4-episode extension due to ratings that exceeded 30%.
