The Cho Seung-woo and Lee Yo-won starrer was crowned with an average rating of 20.5 percent during the week of January 28 and 29, TNmS [Total National Multimedia Statistics] showed Wednesday.

The teenage drama, starring Jang Nara, Choi Daniel and Lee Jong-suk, has made its successful exit with great applause thanks to its delicate portrayal of contemporary school lives and problems.
KBS will fill up the hole in the Monday and Tuesday primetime slot with “AD Genius Lee Tae Baek,” starring actor Jin Goo, Park Ha-seon and Jo Hyun-jae.
