MBC's 'Book of the House of Gu' and SBS' 'Jang Ok Jung' aired the series' finales on the 25th, and it was 'Book of the House of Gu' that finished off as the supreme drama in the rating department! 


According to AGB Nielsen Media Research, the June 25th finale of 'Book of the House of Gu' finished off with its highest viewer rating to date, 19.5%, which is a 1.7% increase from its previous viewer rating of 17.8%. 


Not even Kim Tae Hee's death could save 'Jang Ok Jung' from its streak of mediocre viewer ratings, and the drama said goodbye with a 10.3% viewer rating, which is a 1.3% increase from its previous viewer rating of 9.0%. KBS 2TV's 'Shark' couldn't compare to the grand finales of its competing dramas and achieved a 7.0% viewer rating.


SEE ALSO: Can 'Book of the House of Gu' surpass the 20% viewer rating mark for its finale?



'Goddess of Fire, Jeongi' and 'Empire of Gold' will be the follow-up dramas to 'Book of the House of Gu' and 'Jang Ok Jung', respectively. 


Who else is going to miss these dramas?

Two very good dramas after a long time! Bawled my eyes out while watching the ending of Jang Ok Jung, and hoping there will be a sequel for Gu Family Book!

i love both JOJ  and GFB.. i think that even though jang hee bin is known as the biggest villain in korean history, JOJ drama gave a different perspective about jang hee bin and the reason for her greed might be because of his love lee soon (king sukjong). after watching this drama, i realized that lee soon really love jang ok jeong, because she did not get demoted to a commoner after queen min was reinstated. i really made me think that jang hee bin is not a bad person and she only did those horrible things because of all the pains she encountered and also because she is treated as low class...

jang ok jung's death killed me. I cried. If only the director could've changed the ending of jang ok jung & make it a happy ending, but i know that's not how the real story goes. i will miss jangokjung & lee soon <3

Ugh so pissed off at JOJ even though it's what happened in real life....wished that their love could've overcome everything else but guess not.

And the whole time I'm over here thinking what would happen if she had ended up with Prince DongPyung.....would've lived a long and happy life without any involvement with politics...

@lily-khang same here! like they didn't even get married or anything like wtf!!! I was thinking like no no no what im wondering is why couldn't kang chi's dad heal her? since he hasn't helped her yet... but yeah a sequel would be amazing though. Hope they follow through!

now if you're looking for the next drama to watch, I'd highly recommend Shark which doesn't deserve its low ratings at all

GFB was actually really good. I didn't expect it to be that good, and Suzy actually improved in her acting though there's a lot of room for improvement. I haven't watched JOJ yet so I can't really judge yet, but since almost everyone are saying that it's good, I might give it a try

I've been watching both JOJ and GFB and I have to say I likes JOJ more!                                    it's just that the story is very unique and most people can't like it!

If you want a drama to watch now start SHARK it's AWESOME! great drama and probably one of the most AMAZING CHARACTERS EVER: Yi Soo 

KIM NAM GIL <3

to me, JOJ is really under rated. the story line is so much different from other typical korean drama. Yes, it is sad and it can be boring but you dont usually meet this kind of drama. On the other hand, GFB is also a romantic-sweet mythical drama. I enjoyed both of them but i wouldnt say that they are the best korean drama. 

.. another thing, the ending for Gu family book , to me .itwas understandable cuze kangchi is immortal, so it makes sense to meet all of those pple again. minus the fact that they all met him around the same time.
