Historical fantasy drama “Jeon Woochi” topped the chart with an average rating of 15.2 percent during the week of January 16 and 17, according to data polled by TNmS [Total National Multimedia Statistics] Friday.

The melodrama has come to a happy ending where Jung-woo and Soo-yeon, played by JYJ`s Park Yuchun and Yoon Eun-hye, have a wedding.
To fill up the hole in the Wednesday and Thursday primetime slot, MBC will broadcast “7th Grade Civil Servant” from January 23.
The upcoming series, starring actor Joo Won, Choi Kang-hee and 2PM’s Chansung, will depict young secret agents’ relationships and conflict in the National Intelligence Service.
Sitting in the last position this week was the SBS period-set drama “The Great Seer," which earned the support of just 11.0 percent.
