The MBC drama Gu Family Book has already been sold overseas even though it has only aired two episodes in Korea.
An MBC rep said on April 10 that "Gu Family Book has been sold to the Philippines, Hong Kong and Cambodia even before its full story has been revealed."
The rep added, "We can′t reveal any details about how much it was sold for, but it′s close to the amount The Sun and the Moon was paid. We′re in talks with other countries other than the three mentioned, so sales will definitely rise."
Gu Family Book has been scheduled to air for 24 episodes, and with its first two episodes managed to top the viewership ratings chart for its time slot. Commercial slots are already sold out up to episode eight, proving the expectations being put on the drama.
The feat was managed even without appearances from the main leads, Lee Seung Gi and miss A′s Suzy.
