#1719 Iljimae - Final

Korean: 일지매
English: The Phantom Thief
Genre: Drama/Action/Romance
Episodes: 20
Country: Korea
Year: 2008
Rating: 8.4

I've cried so much while watching this drama!
The beginning and start from episode 7 till the end!
That's really something Korean I think!!

In my opinion the first 6 episodes were really slow
The youth of Gyum/Yong and the start of Iljimae ..
I'm a little bit confused about the ending!
Is he dead or he's still alive?
The beginning is just the ending right?
SO he's alive ....

I don't like the ending!
I think Bong Soon shouldn't be like that!
Eun Chae don't know that Yong is Iljimae but why she asked how "he" is ...
BUT the last few EP about the Plan was just the best!!

In my opinion I think Yong should end with Bong Soon
She really did many things for him!
And even can sacrifice her life for him!

I love Lee Jun Ki!! His acting is just so good!!
I must say this is actually the first time I see him on screen!
I saw a little part of The King And The Clown but that I don't count!
I'm so happy he's back from military service!
I can't wait for his new CD and drama/movie!!

The kids performance from Yeo Jin Goo, Jung Da Bin, Kim Yoo Jung & David Lee are really good!
Especially from Yeo Jin Goo as Gyum! 
His acting is so strong! I'm waiting for his "I Hope" movies in the follower years!

I didn't know Kim Hyun Sung was in here.
I actually don't know his name till I saw him on screen ..
He was just so familiar ...
OH yeah he was the guy in Puzzle with Joo Jin Mo LOL...

Set during the Joseon Dynasty, Iljimae acts as a useless gangster in the marketplace by day but at night he is a chivalrous robber who robs corrupt government officials to give to the poor. After each robbery he leaves behind a wooden branch from a plum tree at the site of the robbery to take responsibility for the robbery. Bong Soon is a hilarious girl with good martial art skills and lives as a swindler. She only loves Iljimae and sacrifices her whole life for him. Eun Chan is a doctor’s daughter and is good in nature and usually helps miserable people. She meets Iljimae once by chance, and their sweet love story begins.

Memorable Scene:
- The dead of Lee Yeon. It was so tragic! Yong saw his own sister die!
- The dead of Swe Dol. Only to protect Yong
- When Yong saw Kong Hee & Bong Soon "jumped" from the cliff .. Only to help him!
- The sweet kiss from Iljimae & Eun Chae in the tree! And also the other scenes from them in the tree!
- When Yong make a lamp for Bong Soon and tell her she can leave with him after the plan! BUT he need time to forget the person in his heart! It was maybe so stupid for Bong Soon! BUT I think it was rwally touching.
- The wedding from Swe Dol & Dan Yi. Just so suddenly!
