Excellent series. A must watch. I've seen the first 4 episodes. Really good writing and character development. Can't wait to see where this story leads. Didn't realize the director directed Misaeng. Another really good must watch series. Still wishing for Misaeng part 2 with the same actors following their exploits.
One of my first Korean dramas. Great writing and characters. The depth and complexity of the storyline and the use of all the actors is what got me into Kdramas. It was also neat to see a spy drama from the SK perspective. The ending is more shocking to me than sad ( this is an international intrigue with a very passionate love story). I wasn't expecting a rom com ending. This drama and Athena (somewhat of a follow on) are must sees. All the actors are great but especially liked the roles played Kim Seung Woo ( North Korean Agent - also in Athena) and an early role for TOP ( Big Bang) as an assassin - so well written.
Love the leads. I could watch them read a phone book to one another, but there really isn't a story here. The writers gave up midway. With the exception of the annoying girl chasing Sung Hoon's character, the secondary actors who are all very good were very underutilized. Love to see SJS and SHA in another show as a couple maybe solving crimes etc. Their banter and friendship is very entertaining.
