In “Iljimae” episode 15 last night, Yong/Iljimae kissing scenes with two women in the day and night respectively has made viewers very interested.
Bong Soon (Lee Young Ah) still didn’t know Yong (Lee Jun Ki) is Iljimae in disguise but shows her love for him in many ways. Yong decides to set her free and tears up their contract. Bong Soon gets really anxious and decides to take the intiative as she forces a kiss on him. It was real hiliarious to see a gender reversal here with Bong Soon becoming like a man and vice versa. Bong Soon was real happy after learning it was Yong’s first kiss.
On the other hand, Eun Chae (Han Hyo Joo) and Iljimae goes back to the plum blossom tree where they met for the first time as kids. Eun Chae tells him about the little kid who was her first love as she also expresses her liking for him at the same time. Eun Chae requests to see his face but Iljimae instead covers her eyes and kisses her instead (rather awkwardly) among the falling blossoms.
Following the broadcast, the message board was flooded with viewers comments, “Eun Chae and Iljimae’s kiss was really beautiful. Please let them date”, “Yong and Bong Soon kiss was so cute”, “My heart was beating so fast because of the kissing scenes today”, etc.
According to TNS Media, the ratings for episode 15 of “Iljimae” achieved 26.0%, as it bested it’s prevous best of 25.4% a week earlier, continuing it’s reign over the other two dramas from KBS and MBC.
With just 5 episodes remaining, will Yong get his revenge, will his romance bear fruit, the drama ending, etc are highly anticipated by viewers.
