    As I absolutely adored all the tension, action and the slight tint of romance in IRIS I was indescribably excited when IRIS 2 was announced. I anticipated this drama and was ready for even more action, but... I was left disappointed.
    Yes, the fights, the chasing, the shooting - that all was amazing and high class level, but the more I watched, the more it seemed that the drama does not focus solely on the IRIS organization, but more on the countless links between main characters and their personal issues and families. Also, the romance took over the action to my mind and even though a dose of it here and there is irreversible, this was definitely over the top and that leads to my partial

    iris 2 was inevitable since iris 1 left alot of unanswered questions. it goes deeper to reveal who mr black is and iris and the story of the infamous baek san. they did a good job trying to connect the two stories and each having their own entity. it started getting better from ep 12 and the ending was satisfying. i dont usually like idol actors but doo joon and lee joon did an excellent job. the solo missions in both series were the best story lines then the girlfriends. i was not really impressed with lee bum soo's character. i like him as an actor but this role was just not for him. he tried to bring and show his goofiness but it dint work read more

    I plan to watch this for Lee bum so's sake only. Is his character here likeable? And should I watch season one to be able to understand the story?

    • DiaNine Mar 12, 2014
      Yes and yes.
      You should definitely watch IRIS before watching this.
      Lee Bum So's character is quite likeable, even if he's a bad guy.

    Watching because of jang hyuk and lee dae hae love those two together great chemistry.
  • nynex Nov 16, 2013
    Well at least I didn't sob as much at the end of this one as the first one. They kinda set it up so you knew early on that he wasn't going to survive in the end. So I was well prepared for it.
    I think it was a good conclusion to what the Iris organization really is, since that was left in the dark in the first series. It brought the story to a close. Glad I watched it, I loved it as much as I did the first part.

    No, Just No. After IRIS, with great actors and a great story, this just feels like a boyband drama. So dissapointed. But if you liked IRIS you should at least give it a try, you might find it intresting even if I did not.

    I am planning on watching Iris 2 but I just have a question, if I watch this one, will this tell me whether Hyun Jun actually died or not??? That's like the only thing I want to find out D:
  • elmarace Sep 19, 2013
    i already download all episodes of this drama without reading the feedbackc. waa this is not as good as iris 1 .. episode is so slow.
    • kit1186 Jan 17, 2014
      Well to be honest season 2 of a drama is never as good as the first
    • wisa Feb 10, 2014
      If you are pointing out dramas with season 2 are not as good as the first, not always true Vampire Prosecutor 2 was just as good even better. But Iris 2 can't say much because just started watching and its getting a little boring.
    • kit1186 Feb 10, 2014
      Probably because they're doing so much at once. That's what I felt like when I was watching Athena. I was completely lost on the first episode.
  • guiong Aug 27, 2013
    Need some feedback, when I found out there was a part 2 and Jang Hyuk was in it, I was ecstatic. But ep 1 is slow as a beast, please tell me it picks back up or this will be another drop?
  • Soulnishka Aug 12, 2013
    i really dug this drama just about as much if not more then the first, i know not the popular thing to say but i found it to be a fun action packed drama that went alittle more into the story then the first one did.. the ending... well its Iris so i expected as much... i recommend if u watched the first one check this one out

    Question: Will I understand Iris II without watching Iris I?
  • misa7 May 27, 2013
    IRIS I was Much Much Much Better.

  • Genshi May 25, 2013
    I'm not quite sure what to think about it, yet.

    After IRIS I was expecting much more and maybe my expectations really were too high about IRIS 2. It's quite good as a standalone, but not as a follow up.

    I'll try to finish this but so far I'm not having the greatest pleasure watching it.

    Who is the actor playing the guy following Baek San around?
  • canyousaywhuut Apr 30, 2013
    I dont understand Joong Won. Is he a bad or a good guy? He's against IRIS but why did he hand over the NK representative to IRIS? I dont get it. :/
