General Hospital 2 Replaces The Return of Iljimae

MBC announced yesterday that the follow-up drama to Beethoven Virus would be General Hospital 2 instead of The Return of Iljimae. The latter has now been delayed for broadcast officially to next year as a result.

General Hospital 2 was highly popular among viewers when it was shown 14 years ago. Cha Tae Hyun and Kim Jung Eun will lead the drama which will air on 19th November after Beethoven Virus in the Wed-Thus timeslot.

Jung Il Woo fans who have been waiting with anticipation for his version of Iljimae were noticeably disappointed with MBC’s decision. But the production team behind The Return of Iljimae welcomed the decision that MBC had made.

According to the production team, filming for The Return of Iljimae was originally set to begin early next year. But following some changes by MBC which set the broadcast date to 19th November, they had to alter their schedule to meet the change. But with this latest development, the team can now film the drama according to their original schedule without any rush.

According to PD Hwang In Roi, “The Return of Iljimae will require lots of post-production processing especially for the fighting scenes. Our filming schedule was disrupted several times due to the frequent changes but this new development is a good thing because we have more time now.”

>> Yay!! Another medical drama with star studded  cast. I’ll be looking forward to this drama even more since Ryu Jin is there (I liked him after watching Capital Scandal). ^^ As for the Return of Iljimae… hmm… I wonder if it’s going to beat Lee Jun Ki’s version. ^^

  1. I have a copy of the drama Return of Iljimae. But I don’t finish watching it. I don’t like the leading girl in this drama. First time I saw her in this drama I feel something bad to her. Maybe because she is not my favorite actress. Or maybe she doesn’t fit to the leading man Jung Il-woo which is younger than her. The leading girl is not sexy and pretty. She is cheeky and I don’t like it! Gosh! It’s so annoying that she was cast on the drama.
