Lee Junki can’t save Hero

Lee Junki can’t save Hero

Popular young actor Lee Junki just ended his run as star in the MBC drama Hero. The drama aired it’s final episode on January 14th, 2010. To commemorate the ending, Lee Junki gathered with more than 300 fans for a special fan meeting at the COEX Mall’s Megabox theater in Seoul to watch the final episode together. Unfortunately, the final episode suffered poor ratings with a 4.7 share according to TNS Media Korea.

The show had a dedicated following albeit small, it had the misfortune of going up against 30+ share juggernaut IRIS and other popular dramas such as Will It Snow for Christmas? and Chuno. Hero is slated to be replaced by Woman Who Still Wants To Marry starring Kim Bum and Park Jin Hee.

Lee Junki isn’t quite out of the woods yet. On January 16th, Lee Junki’s Japanese Fan Club has a special trip planned to Seoul where Lee Junki will once again watch the last episode together with the Japanese fans.

Poor ratings is bad news for the young prince but hopefully he’ll have better material to work with in the near future.
