"The King of Dramas" holds Press Conference

"The King of Dramas" holds Press Conference

On 31 October 2012, Kim Myung Min's new drama,  "드라마의 제왕 - The King of Dramas", held it's press conference.

The lead cast - Kim Myung-min, Jeong Ryeo Won, Choi Si Won and Oh Ji Eun, introduced themselves and their roles in the drama  to the reporters.

Also, a 7 minute preview gave an impressive taste of what to expect. It showed Kim Myung Min's character Anthony Kim zipping through traffic on a motorbike, emotional scenes, and glimpses of the other characters.

The drama revolves around Anthony Kim, a ruthless, money hungry CEO of a drama production company. He crosses path (and clashes) with a young, enthusiastic writer portrayed by Jeong Ryeo Won. She thinks that dramas are all about the heart.

Add to the mix two celebrities, played by Choi Si Won and Oh Ji Eun, and much mayham will (probably) ensue in the course of the 16 episodes the drama is going to run.

"The King of Drama" starts airing on 5 November 2012 on SBS.

4-episode extension for "King of Dramas"?

4-episode extension for "King of Dramas"?

SBS is reportedly negotiating with Drama King's production company about a 4-episode extension.

According to news sources, the chances of Drama King ending at 20 episodes look good. All actors have suggested that they have no conflicting schedules.

The extension news comes despite low ratings of an average of 7% for the drama. However, the ratings for episode 10 went up to 9%, as the romance plot takes on pace.

The reason behind the surprising news seems to be due to a delay in production of the SBS drama scheduled to follow after Drama King - Yawang / Queen of Ambition.

Kim Myung Min gifts Padded Jackets to Film Crew

Kim Myung Min who plays the lead character in  SBS' new Monday and Tuesday drama,  "King of the Drama", gave a warm gift to the film crew.

Anthony Kim, the money-grubbing, penny-oinching, cold-blooded character Kim Myung Min portrays in "Drama King", should feel right at home as the weather is becoming colder and colder in Seoul. But Kim Myung Min is the exact opposite and showed his warm heart by giving the drama's film crew a very special present.

He privately bought warm padded jackets to the staff, which is working hard towards the drama's premiere on 5 November 2012.
 

The jackets came with Kim Myung Min's signature. Kim Myung Min said, "I prepared these padded jackets for the staff, who is suffering in the cold weather, and hope it will help them."

The King of Drama aired first episodes

The King of Drama aired first episodes

The King of Drama entered the fight for raitings on 5 November 2012 - and is trailing behind. The first week delivered two fast paced, entertaining episodes, which received good reviews and earned positve feedback amongst the audience.

The two episodes introduced the main characters, Anthony Kim and Lee Go Eun. It explained the backstory, which included orange juice, the death of a motorbike messenger, betrayal and a deadly contract. The set-up for the upcoming episodes is looking quite promising, as performances by the actors were good, writing was tight.

Still, Drama King started out in the single digits ratings. According to AGB Nielsen Korea,  the first episode achieved 6,5% and the second episode saw a slight rise to 7,3% audience share. Both contender dramas for the same time slot are faring better - but the race for ratings has only started.
