“Iljimae which has been enjoying high popularity with viewers will not have a drama extension nor an increase in broadcast time”, expressed Director Lee Yong Suk in a blog entry on his Cyworld minihompy recently on 3rd July.

This is a big decision considering that most Korean dramas tend to add more episodes or extending it’s broadcast time once they get a good reception from viewers about the drama or the ratings are on the high side. But Director Lee Yong Suk has confirmed that there are no plans to do so since it’s a big budget drama and they have already spent quite a lot already.

He added

The entire team has been working their butts off from last year till now filming this and it’s a pretty tough call for them to keep their energy levels going strong. Instead of having a great start but a lousy ending, we decided to stick to our original plan of 20 episodes and will give it our best shot right till the end.
