Way to kill the excitement of many, SBS, but compared to unnecessary hype followed by a cancellation, I'll gladly accept more tactful handling of sequel news. Word has gone out of a possible second season to hit drama "Dr. Romantic", but SBS has been quick to dash those hopes for now.
While some media reported that the series would be returning for another go, SBS officials clarify that no date has been set and that there is no progress made in terms of a production being organized. It's a smart response, because it doesn't completely eradicate all hope, but it leaves enough of a clear point that no, we won't be seeing it any time soon. This all makes sense, of course. Writer Kang Eun-kyeong is already preparing a drama, which is essentially the sound of a reaper's blade for any other work possibly involving her at the moment.
On a personal note, I find a sequel for "Dr. Romantic" highly unnecessary in the first place. The story concluded, the villain was defeated, the team bonded and they carry on. It's not like the drama had a strong episodic element, since everything eventually centered around the Evil Rich Dude™, which is usually what happens in stories of this type.
I suppose it can still become episodic if the creators really want it to, but for now we just need to accept that any possible sequel won't be happening any time soon. Carry on, watch more dramas.
