Bad ratings knock out ‘Knee Drop’After airing for seven years, MBC’s talk show “Knee Drop Guru” filmed its last episode yesterday in Ilsan, northwest of Seoul. The final episode will air Aug. 22, according to local media reports.
The last guest of the show was veteran actress Kim Ja-ok, of the KBS drama “Ojakgyo Brothers.”
An official on the production team for the program said that Kim’s appearance had been decided long before the show was canceled.
The show first aired in January 2007, soon becoming one of the most popular talk show in Korea. However, it struggled in the ratings after host Kang Ho-dong was forced to quit following a tax evasion scandal in 2011.
Kang returned to the program in November 2012, however it continued to lose viewers.
