KBS TV series "Master of Study" ended its run with a bang yesterday, scoring the highest ratings the show has ever seen during its two-month airing.
According to daily statistics released by research firms TNS Media Korea and AGB Nielsen Media Research, "Study" scored national viewership ratings of 26.8 and 25.1 percent, respectively, for its final episode last night.
The Monday and Tuesday evening drama, which premiered in Korea on January 4, had scored solid ratings from the beginning and eventually became the top-rated show in its time slot.
"Study", starring Korean actor Kim Soo-ro as the main character, told the story of a determined lawyer who offers to teach five rebellious students and get them accepted into Cheonha University, the country's most prestigious college.
Based on a popular Japanese comic series "Dragon Zakura", the show also starred some of Korea's most-talented young actors including Yoo Seung-ho, Lee Hyun-woo and Go Ah-sung as high school students wanting to get into the top school and also experiencing young romance.
