Renewed Or Cancelled?
Based on a popular webtoon, Business Proposal is a K-drama and romantic comedy about a young woman who inadvertently gets involved with the CEO of the company where she works.
This romcom has been incredibly popular, blowing up on social media and with big viewership numbers too.
Generally each episode is uploaded quickly after broadcast on Mondays and Tuesdays, with the hard-working subtitle team translating quickly.
This 12 episode drama has been quite the turbulent ride over the weeks and you may be wondering if this one’s been renewed or cancelled.
What is Business Proposal about?
Shin Ha-ri (Kim Se-jeong) struggles financially, so she readily accepts when her wealthy best friend Jin Young-seo (Seol In-ah) offers to pay her for a favor. Ha-ri goes on a blind date in Young-seo’s stead to try and scare off her suitor.
But as fate would it, he turns out to be Ha-ri’s boss, Kang Tae-moo (Ahn Hyo-seop). When Tae-moo wants to keep dating the fake Young-seo, Ha-ri has to come up with a way to keep up the facade and keep her job.
We have ongoing coverage for Business Proposal across the site, including recaps for all 12 episodes. Feel free to check them out HERE!
Has Business Proposal been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, SBS has not renewed Business Proposal for season 2. This isn’t uncommon however, given most K-dramas do tend to wrap up their seasons across their allotted run-time.
The ratings began with a pretty decent 4.9% nationwide and has been steadily increasing, with impressive highs of over 10% over the weeks. Given this is a weekday drama, that’s really good.
Based on this though, coupled with the fact most k-dramas wrap up their stories in a single season so we predict that Business Proposal will not be renewed.
We’ll be sure to update this section with more details as they become available.
What we know about season 2 so far:
Most Korean dramas are reserved to one season and with the rare exception of ongoing Netflix shows (Love ft. Marriage and Divorce, Hospital Playlist etc.) then it seems unlikely that this one will be renewed.
However, there is a possibility that SBS do renew this, depending on how the ending is received from audiences so we’ll have to wait and see.
We generally aim to update this page when more information becomes available.
