The cast and crew of hit TV series "Queen Seon-deok" wrapped up eleven months of shooting early this morning, according to a press release by the show's broadcaster MBC.
The entire staff -- including actors Lee Yo-won, Uhm Tae-woong, Kim Nam-gil and producer Park Hong-gyun -- threw a wrap-up party to celebrate the shooting of their final episode of the historical drama.
The actors reportedly expressed their sadness at the show's ending: lead actress Lee Yo-won was quoted as saying, "I can't believe it," while Kim Nam-gil hugged every single crew member.
The Monday and Tuesday night series has been a huge success, remaining atop weekly TV charts in viewership ratings for most of its showing since late May.
Its ratings had soared to the mid-40 percent range for several episodes ahead of actress Ko Hyun-joung's exit from the show four weeks ago. She had played the role of royal concubine Mi-shil in the drama, which is about "Queen Seon-deok" from the Silla Dynasty, the twenty-seventh ruler and the first reigning queen of the period.
The final episode of "Seon-deok" airs on December 22th at 9:55 p.m. on MBC.
