KBS2’s Monday-Tuesday drama “Prime Minister and I” has been extended with one final episode.

According to an announcement made on December 30, one extra episode of the drama will be produced, making it consist of 17 episodes. The drama will be cancelled on December 31 due to the “KBS Drama Awards” held at the same time, and instead of ending the drama on Monday and leaving the Tuesday time slot empty, the producers decided to extend it with one more episode. 

The final episode will air on February 4 instead of the original date January 28, and as a result, the follow-up drama “Full Sun” will air its pilot episode on February 10. “Full Sun” has recently made the headlines by revealing that actor Yoon Kye Sang is in talks for the melodrama, but very little information of the drama has been unveiled so far.

“Prime Minister and I” depicts the unusual romance between prime minister Kwon Yool (Lee Bum Soo) and reporter Nam Da Jung (YoonA) and airs every Monday and Tuesday.
