Abstract A method for driving a plasma display panel including, (1) in order to distribute the n common electrode lines to k common electrode groups (k is an integer of greater than or equal to 2), setting (p+k.j)th common electrode lines in the P-th common electrode group (P is an integer of greater than or equal to 1, and j is an integer of greater than or equal to 0, (2) dividing a unit frame to be displayed into k subfields, and (3) applying a relatively high discharge voltage to the electrode lines of the p-th common electrode group in the p-th subfield, among respective subfields, thereby erasing wall charges formed at the pixels and forming uniform space charges.
