We had to wait an extra week to get the final episodes of Mr. Sunshine starring Lee Byung Hun and Kim Tae Ri, but they were worth the wait! It did what it does best and went out with incredible numbers in Nielsen drama ratings. It brought in 15.4% for episode 23 on Saturday and then jumped up to 18.1% for episode 24 on Sunday.
It concludes with yet another series high and truly remarkable numbers. We hardly every seen numbers this high with mini series these day. Congratulations to the cast and crew for creating such a wonderful drama and for enjoying such amazing success from start to finish. It was a thrilling ride!
