    Davida Says:

    I love watching Korean Drama’s but whoever is responsible for the English subtitles fire them. They are horrible the pronouns are not right if it’s a man he is called she if it’s a woman it’s called he in the subtitles. Some parts the actors are talking and there are no subtitles at all. It’s really really bad and I know I have missed sooo much. For a 20 million dollar budget you should be able to get someone to do the subtitles right.

    I was so sad about the ending.

    Two thumbs up for this drama. Although ending was very tragic. Yet the story was a heart warming one. It showcases true love and real friendship. One of my raves for it made me cry a thousand times. I fell in love with the lead stars.

    Hello I wonder if you can help a fellow fan: I usually buy my stuff from YesAsia, which carries the same titles in different countries versions. Taking IRIS as example, the Korean version costs 68 euros while the Singapore version is only 35. Since they both have English subs I wonder: is the Singapore version edited differently? Do they maybe cut political or sexual references? Thanks a million, Francesco

    Vivienne Says:

    IRIS 1 is a great drama. Of all the kdramas i have watch, this is one of the best. At first, i’m not a fan of Lee Byung Hun but, while watching IRIS, i became one… One thing i can say is that, the actor had experienced hardships with thise bad goons, WHY is it that the story ended that way, it’s just a little disappointment. He should be alive adn be happy as a reward for all the things he has done. Why not create IRIS 3 and plot here that he survived that gunshot, coma for a while and then came back to take revenge and will be the one to eliminate the head of IRIS and this organization will be gone forever. IT’s possible because in IRIS 1, it is not shown here that the actor is really dead, no ceremony at all and it shows that Choi Sung Hee is waiting for him in the lighthouse, for his proposal….. for the directors and writers, please consider and go for IRIS 3. This will be appreciated by those who have watch this drama.thank you.
