Just noticed that Saimdang international version has come to iflix! Though only up to Ep26 so far, it looks like the English subs are from Oh!K so I am a happy camper :)

Episode 19

It seems Hwieumdang sold another Water-moon Avalokiteshvara (수월관음도 , 水月觀音圖) to the Japanese

Water-moon Avalokiteshvara (수월관음도 , 水月觀音圖) at Eunpyeongsa temple

Water-moon Avalokitesvara dramatically depicts the mental struggles of humans who come to realise that the moon reflected in the water is not the actual moon in the sky. It shows worshippers who, upon reaching the end of their mental struggle, have arrived at nirvana under the protection of Guanyin (觀音) or Gwan Eum (관음) Bodhisattva, a reincarnation of the Amitabha Buddha.

Thanks for the info.  I did check a few weeks ago, hoping that it will there.  At that time it wasn't there yet.  So now we have a few other languages :D to refer to.

This is purely dramatic licensing 

Yi Gyeom arrives in Goa India in May 1542, just in time to witness St Francis Xavier's Goa Miracle which is known as the resurrection miracle

As the story goes...Once when Saint Francis Xavier was in Coimbatore, on the Pearl Fishery Coast, in Goa, India, he was getting ready to start a mass in a small church when all of a sudden a group of people burst into the church carrying the body of a small boy who had drowned in a well. St Francis had baptised the boy, and when his mother saw her son lifeless, she threw herself at St Francis' feet & begged him to save her son. St Francis Xavier recited a short prayer, took the boy by his hand & ordered him to life. He was resurrected immediately and ran to his mothers side.

Peter Paul Ruben's painting depicting the Miracles of St Francis Xavier in Goa India as said to have been depicted in May 1542, commission in 1617/18 by the Jesuits Order in Antwerp as St Francis Xavier was soon to be beatified in 1619. Francis Xavier dominates the scene as the “missionary to the Asian peoples”, his left hand pointing to Fides, the personification of faith, his right hand extended towards the toppling idols, & his gaze turned to the listeners and supplicants.  The blind man on the right, with outstretched arms, while the left foreground deathly pale figures are rising from their graves

“missionary to the Asian peoples”....the group of listeners and observers, who, keeping a respectful distance, are bathed in bright light...

it is said that Yi Gyeom is immortalised in Ruben's painting "man in a Korean Costume"

Sorry to ask this late...

What's the difference between SBS and international version? Is the first more concise than the latter? Does the latter have more scenes of Saimdang & Lee Gyeom together?

I watch it streaming from dramafire or gooddrama. I guess both are the SBS version. 

Where can I watch the international version? Do you think it would be better to watch the final episodes in international version?

The thing is, it is quite tiring, crying after watching it not for two episodes but four episodes for one week.... (sbs + international versions)

 

I'm watching Saimdang: the light's diary since week 1 but I'm new to this thread. As I read through the thread you mentioned the international version of Saimdang in which there are more scenes which are removed as it was shortened by 2 episodes. 

I just want to ask you whether where can I watch the international version of Saimdang (I'm from the Philippines) with english subtitles.

THANKS :)

"I just want to ask you whether where can I watch the international version of Saimdang (I'm from the Philippines) with english subtitles."

If you have Oh!K channel in your cable, they provide English subtitles.

I can only provide you link from GTV Taiwan or HK-TVB Hong Kong which only provide Chinese subtitles

GMA Network is broadcasting Saimdang but I don't know which version

@Anna Trespeces @peyutnduy Saimdang international version with English, Malay, Chinese, Indonesian and Indian subtitles is available on iflix up to Ep26 currently (though Eps 27 and 28 should be up soon). Iflix can be watched in the following countries:

Asia: Brunei, Indonesia, Malaysia, Maldives, Myanmar, Pakistan, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Middle East: Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia

So if you are from these countries, you can sign up for a 30-day free trial (if you are not yet an iflix subscriber) and watch there.

Note: Apparently English subs for Ep16 are not available, and I have written to iflix to ask if this can be rectified.

@peyutnduy The international version is the original edit. Apart from more scenes, it also has better narration, balancing the past and present timelines far more seamlessly and revealing them in parallel. SBS is faster in pacing, but loses more in detail and has a lopsided narrative, emphasising more on the historical timeline, and rushing through the modern timeline. Hope this helps!

That's strange. I just had a look and I can see that Ep27 has just been posted. Perhaps you can check again later. I am not sure how the airing schedules differ from country to country...
