The cast of TV series "Master of Study" [KBS2]
"Master of Study" - Final episode (KBS2 TV, 9:55 PM)
TV series "Master of Study" was never a well-made drama, not even at the end. Out of respect to its target viewers perhaps, the story may have been overly one-dimensional and moved forward without creating much trouble, but it created occasional moments of boredom and the students' teacher and heroic human rights lawyer Kang Seok-ho (played by Kim Soo-ro) ended up remaining on a predictable path. The parting scene between Hahn Soo-jung (played by Bae Doona) and Kang Seok-ho even displayed soap-opera qualities while providing no rationale.,...More

"First place, Bong-goo. Second, Hyun-jung. Third, Chan-doo. Mmm, how about these two? Last place is likely to go to Pul-ip". This is not the time where mid-term report cards are being handed out. As the crew organize the desks and finish prepping to shoot a new scene at the Su-won set of KBS TV series "Master of Study", the students in a special class of Cheonha University start to take their seats, one by one. Director Yoo Hyeon-gi ranks the students by their order of entrance but he does not scold them severly like [main character] Kang Seok-ho does. Director Yoo Hyeon-gi simply blinks his eyes when, to his surprise, Ko Ah-seong comes in first, followed by Yoo Seung-ho who is wearing only a T-shirt. "Why did you take off your clothes? Did you work out? You are in shock from filming the scene where you did a hand-stand, huh?" When Yoo Seung-ho -- who cannot help panting after doing shoulder exercises in the classroom next door -- responds by giving the director a grin, Lee Hyun-woo grins, Jiyeon grins, Ko Ah-seong grins and Lee Chan-ho grins as well. My, taking a photograph of this moment would be like watching the best high-teen drama.,...More
