I was hoping iljimae would show his identity to chae ah and that he would become king! But still I really love that movie I hope they make more of iljimae!!! Oh and lee jun ki looks super cute with his new hai cut!!! Dang he's hot!!!

i've watched the series recently and seriously being hooked by lee jun ki! he's too cool with the haircut and the outfit. he's the only reason i watch the series and it ended up great with the acting skills and the storyline though i quite upset with the ending. i didn't expect the prologue will be the epilogue and that was it? i thought there will be the revealing of iljimae or he'll become the king. the love story also blurry. but overall, it is very nice ancient story and good acting skill from lee jun ki.
