    Iljimae!!!! I’ve been waiting for this drama. It looks sooooo good.

  5. 5 : Tee Tee Says:

    this reminds me of Hong Gil Dong…there are a few differences but I hope the storyline ties better and there are no random events thrown in like an Opium ring or girl smuggling gang.

  7. 7 : Basuha Says:

    I do think it like Hong Gil Dong which I enjoy for the most part; I really don’t like drama where the main character falls for the rich, gentle girl instead of his loyal sidekick. I know that most all Korean synopses are inaccurate so I am looking forward to watching this drama.

    I looooooooove lee joon ki! All in one package (although he smokes T_T don’t like that! o_O) He’s the hottest asian actor that I’ve ever seen… Teehee! *sigh* more power to Iljimae! Saranghaeyo!

  51. 51 : iheartjunki Says:

    OMG! iljimae rock my world!
    it’s very nice drama! ever!

  52. 52 : tofubean Says:

    Actually, i would think this drama has a better story than hong gil dong. It’s more precise and fast paced. The romance love triangle does not eclipse the main plot unlike hong gil dong. It’s funny and the secondary characters are very lovable, especially Iljimae’s father. I would highly recommend it to people who are not Lee Joon Ki’s fans because the story by itself is good already.

  53. 53 : millinie Says:

    i have a question, iljimae (lee jun ki) likes the rich girl and she likes him, but seriously i would like that the other girl called bong sun and lee jun ki like each other, can someone plis tell me if iljimae falls in love with bong sun? (i wish it ends up like hong kil dong)

  54. 54 : Imay Says:

    WOW!!
    The rating is rocketing!!
    I like LJK in TBD&W its a great film, though not a fan of him.
    I think I will start watching this show after it finished.
    Hope it wont b disappointing like Hong Gil Dong
    ^_^

  55. 55 : sam Says:

    hong gil dong is not disappointing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    u really don’t know how to watch drama :P “Imay” LOL

  56. 56 : jessica Says:

    i luv iljimae so much. I agree with tofubean that this drama is way better than hon gil dong.

  57. 57 : shineegirl Says:

    THE BEST DRAMA OF 2008! THANKS TO ALL THE PPL WHO UPLOAD IT ^^

  58. 58 : Basuha Says:

    I found the first two episode of Iljimae to be good but a little confusing because I don’t understand Korean. When I did get a chance to watch it with sub I found that it was a little slow but detailed. By episode 10 I was completely hooked and that was due mostly to the chemistry between Youngee and Bong Soo. I found that they interaction was not only humorous but they connection had depth unlike what I seen with Youngee and Eun Chan. I really don’t understand why they play on Youngee and Eun Chae as the main couple but didn’t have a storyline to back up that concept. I found them to be boring and emotionless didn’t understand why either one of them had strong feeling for each other, other then the 3 minute they share in a tree together just don’t cut it. If there wasn’t a love song playing in the background I wouldn’t know they were in love. I found myself wanting to see more of Bong Soo and Youngee together. They had a stronger connection as children that carried over nicely as adults, I related too them more as a couple.

    There were sad, funny, beautiful and painful moments in this drama in most of them were when Bong Soo and Youngee were together. I love the lantern Youngee made for Bong Soo he capture the short time they spend together beautifully. As I watch the picture turn around in the room I couldn’t help but fall in love with them as a couple. Each picture shows her love for him as Youngee and not Iljimae which made me cheer for them all the more. I laugh so hard when Bong Soo forces her kiss on Youngee; I was in ahhh when Bong Soo got in front of Yongee mother when she was beating him with the broom. I was happy when Youngee was willing to accepted Bong Soo feeling and I was in pain when she fell over the same cliff her and Youngee end up at when they were young. Young Ah played the devoted lovesick side kick very well that it had me cheering her on and looking at this drama in a different way then what was portrayed.

    I felt the ending was okay, I like the fact that Youngee parent had a child together and Iljimae real mother is helping her raise him. I very happy that Youngee brother is okay, because I thought he was sexy and played his character very well. I really didn’t care for Eun Chan. I’m most disappointed with the way it ended for Bong Soo, she seems to have lost her spark and she crippled for the rest of her life. Since there are no subs out yet for the final episode, I’m a little confused with the ending. I didn’t know if he live or dead so I went back to the first episode and determine that the hair style of this two sidekick matching the with the same hair sysle that had at the very end of episode 20 since Iljimae brother look about 5 it seem that it five years later. Which mean the beginning of episode 1 is the complete ending of the drama if that the case he ALIVE!!!!. Going on that concept I decide to give my alternate ending and he end up with Bong Soo.

    Side notes: Joon Ki did a good job as Youngee/Iljimae, he cries so beautifully omg I just found myself thinking he is so sexy when he cry, lol

    The older (Hollywood) I can’t wait to read your review on this one, I hope you watch it.

    PS: I love the love song they chose, downloaded it to my IPod 

    Sorry for the dup review, I realize I didn’t proof read my frist review and had some incorrect grammar.

I really don’t understand why they depicted Youngee and Eun Chae as the main couple given they didn’t have a storyline to back up the concept. I found them to be boring and emotionless and I didn’t understand how they could have developed such strong feeling for each other. Beyond 3 minute scene share in a tree together just don’t cut it. If there wasn’t a love song playing in the background I wouldn’t know they were in love. I found myself wanting to see more of Bong Soo and Youngee together. They had a stronger connection as children that carried over nicely as adults, I related to them more as a couple.

    There were sad, funny, beautiful and painful moments in this drama most of them were when Bong Soo and Youngee were together. I loved the lantern Youngee made for Bong Soo. He captured the short time they spend together beautifully. As I watch the picture turn round and round in the room I couldn’t help but fall in love with them as a couple. Each picture showed Bong Soo’s love for Youngee as a man and not as Iljimae which made me cheer for them all the more. I laughed so hard when Bong Soo forced her kiss on Youngee; I was in thrilled when Bong Soo stood in front of Yongee, when his mother was beating him with the broom. I was happy when Youngee was willing to accept Bong Soo’s feeling and I was in pain when she fell over the same cliff Youngee and her ended up at when they were young. Young Ah played the devoted lovesick side kick so well that it had me cheering her on and looking at this drama in a different way then what the screen writer intended.

    I felt the ending was okay, I liked the fact that Youngee’s adoptive parents had a child together and Iljimae’s real mother is helping her raise him. I was very happy that Youngee’s brother is okay, because I thought he was sexy and played his character very well. I really didn’t care for Eun Chan. I’m most disappointed with the way it ended for Bong Soo. At the end, she seemed to have lost her spark and she was crippled for the rest of her life.

Since Iljimae’s brother looked about 5 it seem that it is five years later. Which mean the beginning of episode 1 is actually ending of the drama. If this is the case the he is ALIVE!!!!. Based on that concept I have decided to add in my own alternative ending in which ends up with Bong Soo.

  60. 60 : Si Says:

    Great review Basuha
    I totally agree, I got the feeling that Iljimae is going to be Bong Soo eventfully. We all know that that the town is real small but yet she was surprise that Dani had a child which led me to believe that she just arrived. Also I notice how Dani looked at Bong Soo, as if she hasn’t seen her in a long time. Eun Chan is still living in that town and Iljimae haven’t persuaded his love for her. She must have an idea of his real identity but the fact of the matter is that Iljimae never reveal himself to her. I think the Eun Chan will always be the one he remember sitting in the tree with, but Bong Soo is the one that building a tree house in his heart, that my alternate ending  This drama have potential for a sequel but since Korean drama trademark is to have the main character die, I hope it end here with everyone alive and a chance for happiness

  63. 63 : mira Says:

    i love this drama, i agree with Basuha, the drama was a flashback from ILjimae at episode 1, so he is alive coz he is the one whose telling us the viewer how and why he become Iljimae,and in Boong Soon Case Iljimae end up with Boong Soon , He knows that Boong Soon not die coz if i’m not mistaken he realize that Boong Soon not die when he see something change with his black cloth maybe boong soon fix something then he knows she is not dead ( well i watch it online with no english sub kinda confusing ) heheheh…..and the monk ( the one who teach Iljiame martial arts ) at the end get like 2 pairs of shoes…my feeling say that iljimae send those shoes for the monk and Boong Soon :)

  64. 64 : KOreanFan Says:

    thanks for the great reviews..i haven watched it..planning to watch it soon…but i guess the ending isn’t so clear cut issit? so in conclusion, Iljimae is alive and he went with Bong Soo? Is that right?

  65. 65 : HannyBae Says:

    What is the meaning of Iljimae in english?

  66. 66 : marvin Says:

    i have been waiting for this series since april this year. I first encountered LJK in THE KING and THE CLOWN, MY GIRL was shown here and I’ve seen TIME BETWEEN WOLF…

    I hope GMA7 gets to show this too…

    to Basuha: thanks for posting a ‘preview’ …

    to be honest I enjoy historical korean series more because its visually more satisfying to watch it with all its costume galore… the production team deserves credit to be able to be particular with details…

    guys if you’ve seen HYANG DAN’s STORY there’s reference there to HONG GIL DONG and near the last scene there’s reference to ILJIMAE too (where a small piece of cloth was left by the ‘hooded stranger’… ;)

  67. 67 : akaChan Says:

    Iljimae so great
    i like this drama n lee jun ki play his roll very well

  68. 68 : mm Says:

  69. 69 : HannyBae Says:

    Highly recomended. the story’s awesome. When I watch it, I never want to blink my eyes just for a little bit. Bravo for all the cast and the crew. Excellent work!

  70. 70 : Poohs Says:

    Sorry if I have offended u, I know I’m not an expert to make a judgement, I only voiced my feeling after watched it. Its true at first I like the story but after reached the ending I cant help feeling disappointed. No offense..

    But Iljimae so far so good.

    hey, it’s good to see this drama, more knowing about korean people and their culture, it’s interesting….. This drama is best, Ryung and his adopted father makes this drama so funny, sad and happy… And i’m glad that’s ryung doesn’t ended with both eun chae neither boong soong, because ryung more prettier than them…. hi…3x…. Lee joon ki has cutes and pretty face, must be difficult to looking for the couple to him..

  75. 75 : cutekpopprincess Says:

    luv it!!
    iljimae rox

    interesting n sad
    A MUST WATCH!!!
    da story is quite slow in da beginning but wen u’re on the climate it’s so amazing
    watch!!

  76. 76 : doris p LOVE kangJIhwan Says:

    watched this series coz of Lee Jun Ki, coz for me his acting rocks! love him esp in crying scenes, he first impressed me in Time Bet Dog & Wolf, and oh boy he makes me cry buckets and in Iljimae he made me cry a bucket more….. love him esp when Iljimae can’t show his hearthaches in the open and would cry in the little dark corner with sticky rice cake in his mouth to subdue the sounds, whew! just thinking of it makes my heart aches, LJK is really a great actor….. though some says that Iljimae has the same storyline with that of Hong Gil Dong but I don’t think they have similarities except for the fact that the character is that of ala Robin Hood…..but if you will look closely Iljimae has same story/plot with that of Dog and Wolf i.e. both got amnesia, both is set for revenge coz of the murder of his parent, both has same loving adopted parent esp the fathers who sacrifice their lives for him, both has his adopted brother as the other man for the love of their life, not to mention that both characters have the same last name as Lee…… but though they almost have same story/plot, I still applaud Lee Jun Ki coz he depicts the almost the same character differently proving himself not just an eye candy but a great actor Korea ever has!

  77. 77 : nadia Says:

    i’ve watched time between dog and wolf before..
    i thought it is the best korean drama untill i watched iljimae…
    it really touched my feeling…
    ljk proved that he not just a pretty face but also a pretty acting skills..
    i may say here that TBDaW equal to iljimae in storyline but both are damn good

  78. 78 : 장미♡ Says:

    일지매 is an amazing drama. the beginning was quite slow, but it got better and better. i think 이준기 did an amazing job acting as the character “용”이. he had amazing expressions and made it clear to the watcher to understand how he felt.i wish i could act that great one day:)

  79. 79 : siska Says:

    I love this drama, I love LJK. I can’t wait what he will play for next. Anybody knows ? Now I am still trying to get his movie ” Virgin Snow “. I am trying to collect his DVD especially while he is the main role. Anybody can help?

    what is the ending of this drama? anyone knows when the DVD is going to be in Singapore?

  84. 84 : Goong Ju Says:

    I love LEE JUN KI’s acting as ILJIMAE but storyline was just average only. Personally i think the drama was not as good as i expected it. PARK SHI HOO’s acting was good but he was not given a very good role to act on it. Over all i still think it was nice drama, worth to watch because of my two lovely idols LEE JUN KI & PARK SHI HOO were in it.

  85. 85 : TotalLeeJunKiFan Says:

    I luv this drama. I sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Totaly LUV LE JUN KI cause he is sooooooooooooooooooooooooo HOTT!!! i have seen all the drama and movie that he came out in. He is such a awesome actor. i wish i can act like him one day. it my dream to become a korean celebrity. anyways you have to watch this drama but the drama is gone from youtube you might have to watch it when it is fixed or you can watch it on mysoju.com. please watch this it is a really great drama. you will regret it if you don’t see this. you should also watch this video on youtube that lee jun ki comes out in. is so hot, u go girl, and shabang shabang. just type iljimae and you will find it. anyways please watch. Luv ya LEE JUN KI!!! =^.^*=

  86. 86 : lêulêu Says:

    Iljimae is much more better than Hong Gil Dong….

    LJK acting is awesome!!!

    The end!

  87. 87 : Samma Says:

    Ilijimae and Hong Gil Dong is 2 different dramas depicting the concept of Robin Hood. But stop comparing them, and making references to which one is better. Both is good in their own ways, no need to be so judgmental.

  93. 93 : Korean#1 Says:

    iljimae is awesome!!!
    Lee joon ki acted so well in this show…especially how ryung had to hide his feelings many times from the ppl around him but yet, he is hurting deeply inside. This series had its fair share of both funny and touching moments. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED although the ending is a bit ambiguous. Overall, it is a great drama!!

  94. 94 : amktsy Says:

    Dear Poohs,

  105. 105 : iljimae supporter Says:

    iljimae is a great drama of 2008 that U MUST WATCH !
    actors and actress’s acting were so nature and touching.
    i love almost every part in Iljimae.
    specifically, Mr.Lee JK as iljimae.
    you r a wonderful actor !
    However, my regret is eun cai never know that yong ee is her lover >__

  106. 106 : iljimae Says:

    i did not die.. that freaking guy slashed me with my sword.. my sword is blunt remember?

  107. 107 : nicky Says:

    I am a non-chinese, non-korean but I watched the drama love it very much thought it was riverting but the ending left a bad taste in my mouth. Imaging drying out your clothes minus the hanger. The guy wasn’t even made meet his mother. Is there going to be a second part. I thought Lee was good and looked great.

  108. 108 : nicky Says:

    I think the makers of this drama should consider making a second part to cover its flaws of the ending of the drama. such a lousy ending to what could have being a great drama.

  109. 109 : Hurley Says:

    the movie was great,from the beginning until the middle .but in the end it was a little mess. yong ee did’nt even meet his real mother, i don know he end up with eun cai or fong chun.and did eun cai know that yong ee is iljimae. and did the king step down, after that who will be king. what will happen to shi hoo ge?you see there is so much of question to ask. please consider to make iljimae 2. and the last thing it was a great movie.

  110. 110 : iljimae fans Says:

    i like the iljimae movie . is so good . make me laugh and make sad . iljimae is the gret drama in 2008.
    i luv iljimae ^ ^

  111. 111 : puffbun Says:

    i LOVE this drama!!! the ending was kinda bad though iljimae and eun chae should have been together or at least with bong soon. but if they clarify that there will be a second season or like to be continued.. or SOMETHing ther ending wouldn’t be that bad.

    PLZ RELEASE iLJiMAE SEASON 2!!!!!!!!

  112. 112 : Qiqi Says:

    iljimae is a very good drama. i love it and i hope it has second season coz many people didn’t like the ending. i also hope that they will remain the actors.

  115. 115 : adelinetoh Says:

    yeah actually i just watched ILJIMAE
    eventhough they have planned to have THe return of Iljimae
    i will still prefer the First version
    i havent finished watching
    but read some comment that he died
    well maybe the second season will be the return
    hopefully the story will be as interesting as
    the first ILJIMAE
    hwaiting~~~

  116. 116 : smartygirl Says:

    yeah!! i’ve finished watching iljimae..! Fabulous drama. I cried and cried when i was watching young Geom struggling during his childhood.. it was so touching.. T_T

    i love the character of yongee, he’s so bubbly and lee joon ki acted so well! i especially like the part where he kidnapped the guy who killed the little kid. he’s so cool and can fight really well! But i hope that yongee will end up with bong soon instead of eun chae..

  117. 117 : EliSe Says:

    hope to see leejk in the second version…..please remain the players!!!

  118. 118 : addict_korean Says:

    this drama is so touching but im so dissapointed y iljimae died..the ending is very worst..i hopefully waiting for the 2nd season that the iljimae is not dying..but lee joo ki is sooooo handsome..u r so talented actor…

  119. 119 : mary Says:

    many evidences that Il-jimae didn’t die:
    1) the beginning of ep.1 is actually the ending of the whole story. remember his fat best friend with the curly hair was not around (still capture as one of the slave) when he planned his “final” mission to search for the sword of the mastermind before his parent’s death. but his fat friend was around with the other 2 discussing with him another mission at ep. 1.
    2) the invisible cloak that he used at beginning of ep 1 to camouflage himself when he burnt a hole at the wall near the roof to enter room was not introduced at all when he went around at final mission b4 his ‘fatal’ blow under the blossom tree.
    3) Eun Chae’s servant look funny when Eun Chae asked about Jong Er’s well-being, he replied he is fine, before he admitted that the older brother was fine too.
    4) the 2 mothers don’t look sad at all when they met Bong soon at the street, surely their grief will be triggered by sight of B.S. if their son really died.
    5) King looked so upset asked his bodyguards to be more vigilant
    saying, IL-jimae will come again as he promised since king didn’t keep promise to step down.
    Long live Il-jimae!!! BUT…
    still very unhappy about the ending!
    why Eun Chae not able to see Il-jimae as Yong Er as he unveil?
    why don’t show him finally reunion with poor mother?
    Director and Producer should be responsible enough to film Part 2, they have let Lee Junki down since he put such great effort into e show.
    Mr Lee Young Suk, you will let your ardent fans of the show down, by not allowing a more worthy ending.
    Kum-sa-ha-mi-da.

  120. 120 : iljimae fans Says:

    i like lee joon ki , he so cool in this drama .

    so cute ^ ^

    and i also like lee yong ah

    so funny and pretttttttttttttttttttttttttttttty !

    i not very like han hyo joo – eun chae

    and that park shi hoo

    he is iljimae rival !

    ha ha ha … … … …

  121. 121 : yeo Says:

    Lee Joon Ki! He is so cute!!!!:)

  122. 122 : Iljimae's fan Says:

    I must say that I am in love with Iljimae. Iljimae to me is none other than Lee Joon Ki. LJK has given the blood and soul to the character of Iljimae which is so real and alive … Congrat to LJK for his excellenct acting. Great movie.

  123. 123 : chun heng Says:

    oh yeah Ijimae never die in the end as you can see the begining of Ijimae is actually the final episope of it. Ijimae later think of his past of his stealing, childhood etc…. But in the last episope he successfuly stolen the ‘item’ in the palace. So weirld wonder how he survive!
    IN CONCLUSION HE IS STILL ALIVE.
    Hope there is still a season two

  124. 124 : korean#1 Says:

    iljimae is awesome!! great storyline…great actors and actresses…Lee JUn Ki did a perfect job in this one…thumbs up!!

  125. 125 : addicted Says:

    i think the ending is actually very powerful. There is a sense of suspense, almost like a cliff hanger. Whether he dies or not is immaterial as either way, he is immortalised by the people. yes, there is a touch of romance, but again, not getting too bogged down about this romance, it portrays flawlessly a robin hood spectacle, one that speaks for itself without going too much into romance.although the main theme is not centered on romance, there is a sense of deep unyielding love especially that of eun chae for a man whose face she has never seen.

  126. 126 : LJK FAN Says:

    ILJIMAE WAS A GREAT MOVIE.LEE JUN KI SO CUTE.I HOPE YOONGEE WILL END UP WITH BONG SOON.SHE IS REALY CUTE…

  127. 127 : nini Says:

    iljimae was a great drama…..lee jun ki soo cute…i realy realy hope that yongee will end up with eun cai…….hope there will be second season for iljimae……..

  128. 128 : Mixy Says:

    I watched this only because of Lee Jun Ki, I love him ever since The King and The Clown and it just multiplied at My Girl…
    Iljimae is far from perfect, it’s dragging and too slow at many times but Lee Jun Ki is worth it. A black garbed thief who leaves a Plum painting behind, he’s so smexy…
    love you LJK, mwah! mwah!♥

  131. 131 : Lynn Says:

    Iljimae is really a very nice drama! I really enjoy it. Iljimae did not die at the end. The director has already revealed the truth.

    On the Iljimae official website he wrote,

    “Some viewers may have noticed that the sword used by the king’s guard is actually Iljimae’s edgeless sword. Iljimae did not collapse because of that slash but rather because of the blow. Apart from this, the last scene where Kong He (Iljimae’s master) had purchased two pairs of shoes is another clue. One pair is actually for Iljimae.”

  132. 132 : Liz Says:

    I am a great fan of lee jun ki. I have watched his every movie and drama. He is very cute and charming. His acting skills had improve… I watched “Iljimae” because of Him. I never thought the story was a heavy drama.. But it also has it’s funny scenes… This is one of his great work. Hope to watched your next drama soon.. But I wish you’ll have a romantic drama, with one of the cutest girl in korea… Good luck!!

  133. 133 : Alex Says:

    Love this drama..already bought the dvd set ..lee jun ki is my favorite because his great acting skill…always get better and better….should watch drama..already watch it 3 times….^^…

  134. 134 : audy Says:

    The first time I watched Iljimae, it’s the young Geom that I was amazed with. He’s got a powerful acting skill at such a young age. And his face, it was so expressive! Way to go Yoo Jin Goo. And then when the old Geom was played by Li Jun Ki. I was a tad disappointed as he didn’t look anything like the young Geom. The young Geom was so handsome! Li Jun Ki had such a small eyes compared to that of the child. Plus, the acting was a bit weird at first. Anyway, it was just a movie. I heard there is ‘The Return of Iljimae’???

  135. 135 : audy Says:

    Park Shi Hoo was also damn handsome wearing that hanbook!!! He should live in the old time. He would make a perfect korean martial arts symbol wkwkwkwk. Way to go everybody! Wish I could be an artist too. It’s so exciting getting to do such unusual things day in and day out :-P

  182. 182 : Shayna Says:

    I just LOVE this drama. It’s awesome.
    I loved the chemistry between Yong/Iljimae and Bong Soon. They’re simply perfect for each other. I was sad to know that they don’t end up together but the fact that Iljimae doesn’t end up with Eun Chae either made me feel a lot better…
    I read that the director said that one of the pairs of shoes belongs to Yong. Does that mean that he lives with Bong Soon’s dad? If yes, than it should also mean that he lives with Bong Soon, shouldn’t it? Bong Soon has no one else in the world excepted her dad and Yong, plus there’s the fact that Yong told Bong Soon that they’ll leave together after he comes back from mission in the palace. He was rather decided to give up his love for Eun Chae and to protect Bong Soon. He didn’t even reveal his true identity to Eun Chae.
    Please someone tell me that there’s a possibility that Yong is with Bong Soon?!!!!

    when i saw joon ki in my girl i didnt have any interest with him because his face is too beauty for a man,, but after i saw iljimae my opinion about him is compeletly dif ferent !!! i like him so much !!! XD

    there is no dvd iljimae in my country and is just on air until ep 4,,, im so curious!!!!!!
    but if eun chae didnt know his identity till the end,,, are bong soon know???

  195. 195 : Ami Says:

    :) Yong did not end up with Bong Soon or Eun Chae, and he did not show who Iljimae really was to Eun Chae. Only Bong Soon knew, and at the very end, she helped him with his missions. What was sad thought was the ending to the movie. >.>;

    To make me satisfied: They should have paired him up with Bong Soon. xD Sorry for those Yong/Gyum/Iljimae x Eun Chae lovers, but man. Bong Soon and him make such a good couple! Lol.

  196. 196 : mvinasia Says:

    i dont know where’s the end of yong love story…

  237. 237 : KDaddict Says:

    I watched Iljimae several years ago when it came out. I found it just so so then. This time I came back to it esp to watch Park Shi Hoo after seeing and loving him in The Princess Man. I found that I like Iljimae more than the first time. Lee Jun Ki is less feminine than in some of his other projects. But PSH has an unsympathetic role as Ilj’s nemesis. No one will like him however well he acts becos he is trying to catch Ilj. He was given few emotions other than quiet anguish, n that’s hard to express. The other characters are lovely, exp Ilj’s foster father, the their turned locksmith. I wish we could see more of this veteran actor.
    But the ending is truly WTF! Everyone met with a horrible outcome. Ilj died. The swordsman who quit his job as an assassin in order to raise the little girl went to live by himself, by the beach. The little girl who tried to take revenge on him failed, n got a permanent limb for her trouble. The elegant young lady became sad and lonely after Ilj died. The two older ladies lost their son Ilj and became lost puppies; they picked up another orphan to raise. Ilj’s half brother, PSH, became prematurely old, grew a beard, went away to teach little children kung fu on a beach. All u can say is WTF?
    The writer is so unkind to all the chars. No one has met w a good end. Their lives has no redemption. Revenge leads to suffering and death; goodness leads to suffering and death. No one has achieved anything in their lives! No redemption, no achievement, no release!
    The ending certainly puts a damper on the drama! What a shame!

  238. 238 : KDaddict Says:

    So, when all is said and done, it turns out that this whole story came abt becos of the king’s paranoia. The blind man said he could “see” a cloud of red air rising from Lee Won Ho’s residence. So the king took it to mean that it was a sign that Lee Won Ho would replace him as the king. To prevent that from happening, he had to kill Lee Won Ho and his whole family! The little boy was instantly rendered an orphan and outlaw. He later became Iljimae.
    Lee Won Ho had an illegitimate son by his maid without knowing that she was pregnant. Whe Lee WH was killed as an enemy of the court, the maid had to place her son into another magistrate’s household to protect the young boy, in case ppl found out who his father was.
    If the damned kind wasn’t so paranoia, this story wouldn’t even come abt.
    At the end, the king went insane, driven by his own obsession.
    The king’s chief assassin killed Iljimae, tho Iljimae spare his life first. But Park Shi Hoo killed the assassin to avenge his little brother’s death. He hanged on to the blood written documents. But so bloody what??
    This drama truly has one of the more WTF endings among all KDs! Too too too bad!

  239. 239 : KDaddict Says:

    I hate it when the main character(s) die unnecessarily at the end of a drama!
    I understand why Iljimae’s foster father has to die. He dies in order to protect Iljimae. He is my fav char in this show. So I’m sad when he dies, but I understand.
    Then Iljimae dies! That is so unnecessary! He spares the chief assassin’s life, turns his back, and he slashed across his back. It makes no sense. He and the chief assassin could both get wounded and let that be the end. Then the elegant young lady wouldn’t have to mourn for the rest of her life, for a guy she is in love with, whose face she hasn’t even seen! How sad!
    The writer who lets such things happen is a very unkind person, unkind to the characters and to the audience. Boo!
    Now I wish I hadn’t watched this stupid show!

  240. 240 : Jennie Says:

    @KDaddict Oh my, you must have really mad after watching it for a second time round to have gone on such a rampage @;-) Seriously, I don’t recall much about this drama (and after reading ur comments, I don’t think I will even bother digging the dvd out again). All I remember is the tree, and the petals, Ilj with his father, the song and the oh so sweet Han Hyo Joo. PSH-no idea at all. But I remember liking it. But the ending is nowhere near as ‘WTF’ many times over as Warrior Baek DS and that was like 10 more episodes than this! So much time wasted in that!

  241. 241 : oktiaput Says:

    i <3 iljimae and i very very <3 you lee jun ki

  242. 242 : lynfer Says:

    @KDaddict i know exactly hw u feel..i cried when his foster dad died but i expected it though whether in drama or real life sumtyms kindhearted dad make sacrifices for the sake of their children ryt?but the death of iljimae is soooo meaningless that you wanted to scream from the top of your lungs WHATS GOIN on?i watched the whole drama continuously for hw many hours and all i got is a worse ending.The characters are superbly done by the actors especially Lee Joon Ki. I have no idea hw good he is until i saw iljimae. The actors are great but the ending is disappointng..

  243. 243 : quince Says:

    The ending of the drama is actually the start of the drama. Iljimae is definitely alive. Take a look at the first 10 minutes of episode 1, it clearly depicts the present Iljimae and then the stretch of the remaining episodes tell us of how Iljimae came to be. Take a look again at the last 10 minutes of episode 20, it supports the scenes of the first 10 minutes of episode 1. Therefore, it’s a good ending, Iljimae is alive.

  244. 244 : crazy4869ai Says:

    @quince yeah, i think iljimae is still alive too because all episode is a flashback from 10 minutes of the first episode, but i wonder why everyone keep it in secret and pretend that he died.

  245. 245 : Malaysian Girl Says:

    Not a bad drama eventhough started to feel bored after watching quite a few episodes..Currently in episode 15. What?Bad ending??Ok, I’m starting to plan to stop watching it to prevent further dissapointment..Revenge based stories always has a really bad ending. The hero almost always dies…

  246. 246 : List of Korean Drama I Have Watched « My Life My Journey Says:

    […] Iljimae Rating : 5 out of 5 […]

  247. 247 : Bera Says:

    Dear all who are saying the end was dissapointing, as the lead actor [Lee jun ki ssi] the sword that was used to slash at the end is not meant to kill anyone, so he didn’t die, & the first episode actually happens after the last episode is a 2nd prove that he deosn’t die, another point the king loses his power since he goes [crazy] out of fear so where exactly is it dissapointing?, at the End it’s like Iljimae is leading the whole country…
    This is the best drama for me of all time non of the new dramas is as good YET!! C:

  248. 248 : arrow Says:

    I like this drama. I saw Iljimae for Park Si Hoo and I like his acting in this drama. Maybe too rigid but his caracter is v. sad and unhappy. Though, in last episode he revenge Iljimae, he teach those children and he can smile.

  249. 249 : HELLO Says:

    This one was so GREAT! I don’t regret watching this for 21 hours straight. The acting was amazing and the action scenes were so good. The only think that didnt impress me was the graphics. They did the best they could and its was acceptable. The ending was expected, in a different way, I guess you could say. It wasnt what I was expecting, which was good, but it seems like a TYPICAL ending. I personally wasnt satisfied with it. However, it was overall a great watch.

  250. 250 : rose Says:

    this drama series is a very good production, never mind that one comment said about the graphics not to par to the setting. I like LJK at his main role, and all the others acted very well. This is the best of the Korean drama series I’ve watched so far, don’t know why I delayed watching it. The story is reminiscent of other ancient stories in other parts of the world, guess greed overpowers, wherever. I like the intensity of the action and enjoyed the comedic parts. It’s really worth watching. Since I have not watched similar dramas of this genre, I give it a 10 out of 10! cheers!
    P.S. I found out that the very good Korean actors I’ve watched so far are veterans in their field and/or have acting training.

  251. 251 : Chloe Says:

    I fully understand the intention of the script writer. The copyrights to the original comic book was given to the MBC’s “The Return of Iljimae”. Exactly the reason why they have to change the story line from the original one to avoid misconception. Though the ending don’t reached our expectations but indeed SBS did a good job in this drama. Enough to give them two thumbs up. The story was not that bad anyway… Let’s give the credit to the whole story and not just to the ending. Cheers to SBS, the script writer, director, producer, all the staffs & crews and to the actors & actresses who give life to the story. Kudos to “ILJIMAE”…

  252. 252 : Gudaeman Saranghae Lee Jun Ki Says:

    LOL Some people dont understand the whole story!Iljimae NEVER die !I agree with Bera the beginning is actually the ending of the story..If you watch Hong Gil Dong its the same the beginning of the drama is actually the ending!You see the ratings is still high coz Iljimae never die on this drama:)you guys have to rewatch it!I have dvds of this and I keep watching it over and over just like The Princess Man!all dramas of Lee Jun Ki I really do purchase the dvds coz hes such an amazing actor!his versatility totally amazing!

  253. 253 : ance Says:

    just heard this drama from a friend…i was really hesitant at first coz i’m not really into this genre…and i also happen to like song il gook so for me he’s really amazing when it comes to period drama…but LJK here is a big revelation…just like in arang and the magistate…he’s really great…acting wise and skill (martial arts)!

    this is a must see!

  254. 254 : ChaseMe Says:

    A salute to the whole production team of Iljimae! *Salute*

    Gudaeman Saranghae Lee Jun Ki [252] was right. Iljimae did not die, the first episode was actually the last episode. I was actually expecting that Iljimae would die because when he was under the titis tree he recalled he’s past happy experience with his two fathers. What I just don’t get was why didn’t he choose between the two ladies; we know that he loves that Agasshi and Bong Soon was also special to him, why didn’t he choose? And from what I understand, it seems like the two ladies didn’t know that Iljimae is still alive; and those people who are close to him somewhat hides that he is alive. That is what’s bothering me or should I say that is a question/s that is hanging in my mind after the ending.

    All in all, this drama has it everything! It is indeed a must see! Why have I only watched this drama now? (tsk..tsk..tsk..)
    A big applause to Lee Joong Ki! You have gained another fan and I will be anticipating your next drama/movie! Cheers to all!

    Thanks to those who highlighted that Iljimae didn’t die and that the opening scene in the first episode is the real ending. It makes the WORLD of difference. I went back to re-watch the beginning and the end again, and you guys are ABSOLUTELY RIGHT!!

    The first time I watched Iljimae, I’d assumed that he died, and I thot the ending was supremely bad, like, the worst ending of a kdrama EVER. Now that I understanding the real intention of the director & writer, it makes a lot more sense, and I suddenly feel like watching this drama again!! ;)
