“History of a Salaryman,” starring Lee Beom Soo and Jung Ryeo Won, was recently announced to get a two-episode extension. According to reports from local news agencies, the SBS drama picked up on ratings towards the end of its run, enough to nudge ahead of its rival, MBC’s “Light and Shadows” and earn an extension to wrap its storylines.
“History of a Salaryman” is a drama about the joys and sorrows of working people. The drama has earned praise for its humor and entertaining way of handling its subject matter.
With the extension, “History of a Salaryman” will end in mid-March at 22 episodes. This will push back the premiere date of its replacement, “Fashion King” starring Yoo Ah In, Shin Se Kyung and Girls’ Generation’s Yuri by a week.
