MBC TV series "Hero", starring Hallyu star Lee Jun-ki, saw a bitter end to its two-month run on Thursday.

According to statistics released by TNS Media Korea the following day, the Wednesday/Thursday evening drama recorded a viewership rating of 4.7 percent for its final episode. Another research firm, AGB Nielsen Media, reported a 5 percent rating.

"Hero", which premiered in November, had taken off to a rough start with two lead actresses pulling out of the show and had failed to fare well against other prime-time dramas, namely KBS2 TV's "Chuno" and SBS' "Will It Snow On Christmas?".

Lee played the role of a passionate reporter working for a third-rate magazine in the drama, about a group of youngsters who rebel and fight against a corrupt society.

"Woman Who Still Wants To Marry" -- starring Park Jin-hee, Uhm Ji-won and Kim Bum -- is scheduled to air starting January 20.
