With the character, Iljimae finally appearing in SBS “Iljimae” drama, it was no surprise to see it sailing past the 20% barrier yesterday night (June 11 ~ Episode 7)

According to TNS Media Korea, “Iljimae” achieved 20.5%, setting a new record high for the drama and also marking the first time it has gone over 20%. The other competing dramas were noticeably affected by this with “Spotlight” and “Woman of the Sun” posting single digit ratings of 9.6% and 9.3% respectively.

In yesterday’s episode (Episode 7), Ryung (Lee Jun Ki) witnesses the death of his sister (Son Tae Young) by execution and sets his heart out on getting revenge. And to piece the clues together to find his enemies, he begins life as Iljimae.

competing shows in the Wed-Thus time slot.


According to TNS Media Korea, episode 8 of “Iljimae’ got 23.0%, smashing its previous record. It was an increase of 2.5% from its episode 7 rating of 20.5%.

In episode 8, Ryung (Lee Jun Ki) edges closer to his transformation into the legendary Iljimae. Ryung who by now has remembered everything about his past witnesses the tragic death of his sister Yeon (Son Tae Young) and decides on taking revenge for them to right their unjustly deaths.

Ryung starts learning from his father (Lee Moon Shik) the basics of being a thief, scaling walls, running for life, picking locks. Ryung tries out his skill, stealing a painting from the home of a minister but instead causes his good friend to be blamed instead. He feels guilty and decides to rescue his friend by going into the palace but meets King Yi Jong instead.

On another hand, the romance element finally is back on as Ryung is finally reunited with Eun Chae (Han Hyo Joo) under the cherry blossom tree.

“Woman of the Sun” got 9.6% for episode 6 while episode 10 of “Spotlight” starring Son Ye Jin got only 10.2%, Although both saw small increases in ratings, it looks like they would be playing second fiddle from now on.

Eh I think its great news for ppl to hear that Iljimae is 'back'. But shouldn't you put a spoiler alert?

And just a side note, its a cherry blossom-like tree right?
