The storyline in “Iljimae” is still revolving around Ryung (Lee Jun Ki) by the end of this week episodes with the ljimae character still yet to make an appearance other than the 10 minute cameo in the first episode. And with the romance element yet to kick in either, viewers are starting to get restless.



Following the conclusion of Episode 6, viewers are very concerned about the slow progression of the storyline with Iljimae still yet to appear. They commented, “I’m very disappointed with Iljimae continuing to be absent”, “Iljimae seems like a side character rather than the leading character”, etc. The truth is Ryung will eventually become Iljimae. But compared with Park Shi Hoo’s character which seems to be better developed, it has left a deeper impression on viewers as they sympathise with him more than Ryung.

From the ratings by TNS Media, episode 6 of “Iljimae” saw a decline, getting just 18.6% with it’s rival “Spotlight” rising to 11.3% but still light years behind. KBS “Woman of the Sun” hit double digits for the first time, getting 10.2%.

^it didn't decline...well from episode 9 and 10, it did...by 2% or 1.5%, I think...but it was criticized by slow progress...but it's still on top, nonetheless...

HAHA. After episode 6 ILJIMAE WILL APPEAR!

I was thinking the same thing too, like curse! Why hasn't iljimae appeared although its like, the main chara? (look at the title man!) But luckily I went to find the rest of the episodes, and then tadang! So din have to agonise for long.

So ratings will rise. Dunch worry!

it was nice though, ... how he became iljimae, he was more into depth ... it showed his past, which i value and pretty much you sometimes wonder " why is he such a hero?". The beginning eps, explain alot things you might wonder.

I think the romance begins from 15 and up. Cause I see Iljimae is about to lock lips with both female parties. Damn!

as for me..the pace is just right....i like the detailed background..that way, the story can be understood fully...if this is like robin hood..then iljimae will end up with eun chae...i just hope that nothing will prevent the uploading of the drama with english subs...

this really sucks. there is only going to be only 20 episodes, due to budget concerns. they should speed it up a bit faster so that other events too are detailed without running out of time, or they should make more episodes. i'm totally for more episodes.
