Viewers have been left divided over tvN's 'Twenty-Five Twenty-One' finale yet the series ended with its highest ratings. 

On April 3rd, tvN's drama series 'Twenty-Five Twenty-One' aired its final episode. Following the controversy over the show's 9/11 news coverage scene on April 2nd, many viewers expressed their disappointment with the series finale. 

Some of the comments include: 

"The writer should stop writing at this point." 

"I should've stopped watching after episode 8."

"This was the worst k-drama in the history of k-dramas."

"I feel like I just read a badly written fan fiction."

"Overall it was an okay-ish drama but the finale was such a disappointment."

"So this ended up being a drama series about a grown-ass man playing with a bunch of high school kids." 

Regardless, the series ended with the highest viewership ratings of the series. According to Nielsen Korea, the final episode of 'Twenty-Five Twenty-One' scored an average nationwide rating of 11.513 percent, marking a new personal record for the show.

To be honest, the only reason people are disappointed with the ending is because of all the fan/netizen theories hoping that somehow they will end up together, despite the drama signalling from the beginning that they don't.

and really akp - you only report about 2521 when there's a controversy (age gap, 9/11 scenes and divisive finale) while you report every single minor thing about a business proposal - biased much?

This was a very good drama. People might be mad because we didn't get a fairytale ending but I don't think that should take away from 2 months of great content.
