After much consideration, it has been decided that ‘The Penthouse 3’ will receive a two-episode extension. On July 29, the production team confirmed that this decision was made in order to achieve a successful conclusion with a more solid ending. Originally slated for 12 episodes, ‘The Penthouse 3′ will now be a 14-episode drama as the series’ final season. In addition to the announcement, The Penthouse 3 teased an upcoming episode starring Uhm Ki Joon and Kim Young Dae.
Joo Seok Hoon (Kim Young Dae) was seen enraged in the previous episode after learning that Joo Dante (Uhm Ki Joon) was involved in Oh Yoon Hee’s death (Eugene). oo Seok Hoon agrees to join forces with Joo Dante on the condition that he promise not to harm Shim Su Ryeon (Lee Ji Ah). In the upcoming episode, Seok Hoon, who looks dashing in a suit, pays a visit to Joo Dante’s office to learn how to do his job.
Meanwhile, the production team humbly accepted their folly in portraying Alex, Logan Lee’s twin brother, in a racist and inappropriate manner. According to SpoTV News, the production team of ‘The Penthouse 3’ revealed that they had changed Alex’s character. This comes after the African American Vernacular English community accused the show of cultural appropriation.
‘The Penthouse 3’ airs on SBS every Friday at 10 p.m. KST.
