i think you got one thing wrong. boon soon and yong e are together in the end. not like lovers or anything. but together.

the father had 2 pairs of shoes. (if you watch it again, one of the shoes is for young e, and the other one for boon soon, its female shoes.....)

the obvious reason why she didn't go to town is because everyone thinks she is dead. maybe she feared for her life.....

thats another reason why his father cant come back to town.

another thing, in episode 20, bong soon said she would not leave the secret hiding spot until, young e came back.

obviously he came back to rob the king again...

and when you watch episode 1, you noticed someone made fake metal badges to rob the king again.

btw...i am not a boon soon or eun hae fan........either is blah. but as a outside observer, its obvious in the end he picks boon soon, but still has feelings for eun hae. he knows in the end it won't ever work out.


another thing, he said in a recent interview he won't ever do iljimae again. (he has to go to the army, and he wants to finish other projects)

(IF THERE IS ANOTHER ONE, IT WONT BE JUNKI DOING AGAIN)

He is alive. In episode 1, there was Heung-gyun (the shoe maker), the leader of the Ajukari gang Hee-bong, and Daeshik with Iljimae (Yong-ee) at his place advising Iljimae about his mission. They didn't know who Iljimae really was, but later they found out that Yong-ee was Iljimae after Shi-hoo found out, and helped Yong-ee getting into the palace and avenge his father. Episode 1 started with Iljimae's flashback..so I think he's alive. >_< ...........................sorry..was this too confusing? T-T

i think iljimae is alive, i agree with many of you in that iljimae's blunt sword was picked up.
for some strange reason - i dont know why - but i cant help thinking that the man on the rope entertaining the crowd is iljimae because you dont get to see his face and he's dressed in black
yeah it's a wild stab in the dark and a very random thought but what they hey!

iljimae for the win!!

I don't see how this is even an issue, if you were paying attention to the fight between chun and iljimae. and what occurs in the first episode, with the frozen blocks of wine, happens a few years AFTER iljimae drags the king in front of the tree. In the story "return of iljimae" being told at the end of the last episode, the king is already fallen into mental dementia, he's asking for Chun, even though he's long dead.

iljimae is thought to be dead by some and alive by others. He's maintaining the shroud of mystery around him, and frankly, that's what makes legends.

the next season starts in nov. it won't have jun ki.

He's definitely alive. Especially since the entire drama was one big flashback. In that last scene with Chun, he was slashed in the back with his own bladeless sword and injured, but not killed. He was pretty much in hiding, though, and obviously didn't need to be as active since he discovered the truth which was his whole reason for becoming Iljimae in the first place.

he is definitely ALIVE! the director already clarify that question wid example of the 2 pair of shoes in the last episode; one was 4 iljimae! but wat really show me that he was alive was wen he burglarized the palace at the very ending!! it's the same scene they showed at the very beginning of episode 1....remember toward the ending wen the villagers were all gossiping bout how someone's place got burglarized n used the same method iljimae did, then the ending scene, it was confirmed that iljimae was the 1 who did it!!!

I think Iljimae is a live because otherwise, they would have shown him lying on the floor dead. However, it doesn't really matter if Iljimae is alive or dead. He's messed up because he never went back for Boon Soon.

Don't read this thread unless you've finished the Final Episode

Personally, I think he's still alive. There were three swords on the last fight scene. The king's sword was pierced to the ground near the tree. Chun's sword was thrown away by Iljimae. Iljimae's BLADELESS sword was the sword that Chun grabbed and sliced Iljimae. So I don't think he's dead yet.


for goodness sake,

he came back didnt he??
in the last part...
onli i guess he changed hies flower for some unknown reason...
OR

well i'm not 100% sure bout this theory, but i believe the flowers changed 2 white rite??! i think it was red b4 bcuz it symbolize revenge n anger cuz yongee saw someone kill his dad wid his own eyes, n blood splurt onto the white titis changing it 2 red, n since iljimae was looking 4 the man who causes his father's death, so it's red titis.....but the meaning of why he's iljimae totally changed by the end of the movie, now he's iljimae 4 the pepo, not 2 seek revenge, so it's white.....bout the villagers, quite a lot of pepo know that yongee is iljimae at the end, but not ALL knows...remember tha part where eun chae asked some of the villager bout yongee n they replied he's doing well?? well these r few of the villagers that knew his identity at the end n they confirmed that yongee doing well, therefore, he's not dead.....the ones who doesn't no bout his true identity was the gossipers, n tha one who does know r not gonna expose his true identity so they juz go along wid everyone else.....

100% alive. after 4yrs. u still see that the king is still in shock of iljimae coming back if he doesnt keep his promise. the last scene of iljimae stealing. which was also the begin scene of the serie. show him coming back *atfer 4yrs. only question now is. will they made a season 2 which should be mostly be about the love story. since i think that none of them got marrie yet and the previous iljimae didnt really focus on the love story but more into iljimae seeking truth. they should of extended the drama and made the love stories more interesting.
