    Another version of an old tale
    If you are not familiar with the story of Iiljimae, You may like this video, However, it is based on the tale of a thief called iiljimae. it was just another version to see for me since I saw the Other Illjimae drama which i thought was awesume. This is more of a modern narrated version with extended story line . The difference being in this one he became a father while in the other, it was just ...

    1 of the greatest watched
    I agree with the previous review. Since this was the first tale of Iljimae that I have seen, I thought it was awesome. I also recommend to judge for yourself the quality of the drama. I really enjoyed the acting since the actors really brought forward the characters emotion creating a smooth and intense story. I also enjoyed that the story did not drag as it can happen in some dramas. I thought ...

    Very disapointing compared to the SBS version...
    Overall...
    I expected much more from this version of Iljimae.
    I watched the SBS version and it was much much better.

    The storyline was loose, and not very well told. The female actors in particular were not very good.

    Chronicles of Iljimae
    Given that there have been two adaptions of the "Chronicles of Iljimae", by two different broadcasting companies, it would be natural to compare the two.

    However, it would be like comparing the movie "Scrooge" to "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol". They are not quite the same, even if they are both dramas.

    This version focused much more on the characters' personalities and their backgrounds. ...

    I don't reccommend this show.
    If you're coming here because you saw the other Iljimae and loved it, it's awful in comparison. If you saw the other and thought this was a sequel, it's not. The sped of up fight scenes envolving Iljimae are unrealistic. (yes, even for an unrealistic drama). The other Iljimae did this to some degree, but it wasn't a blur of the camera shaking around, losing focus and video randomly when ...

  • If you're going to compare this to the SBS version, you shouldn't watch it.
    Most people like the SBS one because it's a bit more fun. But MBC made this one more true to the story. If you set aside the SBS version, you would like this one. It's long and it drags on parts a lot but I'd say overall it is a good drama.
