The PD of MBC Wednesday and Thursday drama The Moon that Embraces the Sun, Kim Do Hoon, has denied the plan for 4-episode extension of the drama.

On February 16th, 2012, in a call with SportsSeoul, PD Kim Do Hoon said, “It’s a fact that the news for the extension of The Moon Embracing the Sun has been unstoppable, but there is no concrete decision nor any progress yet.”

About the rumors on the 4-episode extension, he denied about it, “The extension has not been finalized yet, and I do not know how the specific figure comes about. This is the first time I heard about it. If it’s an extension of 2 episodes, may not be certain, but if extending for 4 episodes, because there is possibility of stretching and elongated the story plot, so have to carefully consider about it.”
