same but if you think about it , then they'd lose points on story style...the fact that it's a sageuk makes it more interesting but if I'd love to see it in full modern type, since it would definately beat the SBS version, the story has a lot to offer so let's wait ...it might go back to the present in the end ...u never know

The 1st is ok but not that great. I hope this one is going to be better than the 1st :-)

I didn't enjoy the more fusion style Sageuk that SBS did, even though LJK was in it. But I'm really curious about this one. The screenshots I've seen so far looked nice! Would love to see this drama getting the attention it deserves

Same, still can't believe no k-subbing team picked it up, kind off makes me hate SBS's version, since WITH S2 picked that up first >.< but ....well =(

besides it's jung ill-woo 's drama debut since he's done only a sitcom and apeared in 2 movies (?) with one as a main cast ..>.>

I hope ratings increase on Wednesday

Someone please sub this drama! The ratings are high, which means this drama is good and popular. I can't believe no one is subbing it.

by looking at the poster and title-- I thought it was a sequel to the first Iljimae but when i saw the video, it was different. It was set in modern day not the Chosun era I thought it was....I haven't seen the rest of it. I also read that withs2 is subbing this drama but for those of you who can't wait, watch it at viikii. They just started this and the first 2 parts are finished subbing.

Where are you getting your sources from? I don't see anything on their wiki that says they're planning on subbing it.. If they were it would definitely have been posted there as a possible. or current

It's not a sequel and from what I know the entire series is not actually set in modern day Korea, but the first episode is supposed to show that the hero character of Iljimae is present in every generation.

This drama has been in development for several years. It predates the SBS version.

Just to Confirm

WITH S2 is NOT subbing it , they always propose to sub a series couple of months before it's airing.
MBC did acquire the comic book version 's license and the drama was in development before the SBS version as KWillets said .

Viikii version is blurry but good.....though I am still hunting down a subbing team to take it.
-----------------------------------
EDIT if someone could do the timing on the ental version (srt format/softsub), I could do translation ! (with help from viikii) Unless anyone would be glad to translate and time >.<

Anyone up for it ?

Wish I could help out, but I don't have time nor the knowledge :o

for those of you that know chinese, there is a chinese subbed version on btchina. unfortunately it's not complete because they omit parts which they deem to 'malign' chinese history (i'll refrain from getting into a debate of how true this is). i haven't actually had time to sit down to watch it properly but i noticed that they didn't translate parts because they said that it was maligning chinese history.

Awww, no one is subbing this show. I hope someone subs it someday. I was a bit disappointed with SBS Iljimae so I though maybe this one would be better. But then again, MBC... This could be some overdramatic crap like always... Still, I wanna see it. The cast looks nice and story is interesting, I'm into historical dramas lately.

Sorry, my mistake. I mistook THE IRON EMPRESS with this one. But if any of you are interested in watching this drama with subs, try viikii. They have the subs for a few episodes already. This drama is quite boring and draggy, no wonder no one want to sub it. I've watch the first 5 episodes and I couldn't hardly keep myself awake. I say this is as boring as STRONGEST CHIL WOO.

I agree with u, I just finished Ep3 & nothing encourage me to continue watching it.. Iljimae with Lee Junki was much better, I was really puzzled with at the first 2 Eps cuz the storyline was like running from one action to another without any links, it was like putting the scenes together without any relating that make the viewers in dilemma, that's why the new KBS drama Hateful But Once Again was able to beat the drama & get much high rating than Iljimae.. :-)

I watched Strongest Chil Woo and I don´t think that somethink can be as stupid as that one... If nothing, main lead in this is a cutie and knows how to move XD

Does anyone have the tracklist for the ost? I can´t found it romanized anywhere T_T

It really is a good drama, but it one of those drama you really need subs to really get the gest of it! I'm still watching it raw, when it complete on Vikki I will re watch if someone don't pick it up. WithS is doing Cain in Abel and I think that the BEST! because that Drama is GREAT! keep up the good work WITHS!

I am with others. I want to see this series. I hope someone will sub it. I read DramaBeans review to see what is going on.

TO me its best to keep the one drama one, not to make another simliair one, specially giving it the same name! ILJIMAE WAS AWSOME AND ULITMATE! MAKIGN ANOTHER "ILJIMAE" thats not even the continuation, just kills the uniqueness of the Original Lee junki ILjimae which was very high rated! dont get me wrong, the actor in Return of iljimae is awsome and very cute, however the story line is not..its no fun too watch something with the similiar theme to a hit drama! I personaly think it kills the "real Iljimae."

they should have made another total differnt story! no similiarities wut so ever!

They not that similiar

IIjimae was ok, it lack a lot of things to be consider a good drama. I also don't consider it to be the original. Both network had the story, Return of IIijimae just decided to delay releasing they version for the obvious reason. The story is more different then the same and I appreciated it because your get to see a story written from a different aspect. I do hope someone pick it up, but if they don’t doesn’t’ mean the drama wasn’t worth it.

Haru2subS are subbing this - see wiki for status -

After seeing the first Episode of "Hateful" with subs from Haru2, I am anxiously awaiting subs for Return of Iljimae from them. The subs for "Hateful" were impressive. I will patiently wait for the subs to come as I know Haru2 is a new subbing squad and needs time to gather more members. I am sure they will welcome anyone who wants to help out. Meanwhile I will standby and wait for their fabulous work to come out. Thanks Haru2!!!

Well wait-no-more !!!!!!!!!!

HaruHaru has released the sub for episode 01 (.srt) -

Looks like the rating for the drama is dropping.

I just started watching this and I haven't seen the other version, but I really love this drama. Cha Dol and Seon Dal make me laugh and I really like seeing Iljimae kick butt! :D I guess I'll never understand the need for those annoying characters like Wang Hyeong Bo, though. His meowing drives me up a wall. >_< I'm only up to episode 11 by now, but it's been a fun ride so far and I'm looking forward to the rest. Cheers! :salut:
