KBS’s God of Study ended today with a strong finale, which recorded a series high rating at 26.8% (TNS Media).
It has led the Monday-Tuesday ratings race for its entire run, although all of the other shows have performed decently as well. MBC’s Pasta had dipped a bit in recent weeks but is back up with a 16.3%. SBS’s Jejoongwon still trails in third place, but not by too much of a margin; its latest episode drew in a 14.3%. (Wish Upon a Star is in an earlier timeslot; after a small ratings dip yesterday, perhaps due to its week off, it’s back up with a strong 18%.)
God of Study is also the first of the Monday-Tuesday dramas to wrap; Pasta was given its extension and will wrap with 20 episodes, Wish Upon a Star was planned for 20 episode from the start, and Jejoongwon is slated for 36.
I haven’t seen the God of Study finale yet, but for those of you who are curious about the ending, which dealt with the big question of whether these kids were successful in their goal to make it to the top-tier Chun Ha University:
[SPOILER]Baek-hyun, Pul-ip, and Bong-gu — played by Yoo Seung-ho, Go Ah-sung, and Lee Chan-ho — were accepted to Chun Ha University. Hyun-jung (Ji-yeon) was not accepted, and it is belatedly revealed that Chan-doo (Lee Hyun-woo) decided not to apply in the first place, opting instead to pursue dancing.[END SPOILER]
Taking over the KBS timeslot is the money-themed Birth of the Rich, starring Lee Bo-young and Ji Hyun-woo.
