Character stills and posters for Myung-wol the Spy

Here’s a whole slew of official posters, character stills, and behind-the-scenes photos from romantic-spy-action-comedy Myung-wol the Spy, which premieres this week. I have to say, some of these look utterly ridiculous — I love it.

My particular favorite is the poster of the leads on a motorcycle, dressed in wedding garb. It suits the drama’s wacky premise: Beautiful and deadly North Korean spy (Han Ye-seul) infiltrates the South with her fiercely loyal sidekick (Lee Jin-wook) and is ordered to get close to a Hallyu star (Eric)… by marrying him. Hello, hijinks.

The comic angst is sure to multiply when our top spy then falls for her husband/target/mark, which makes me think this is like a cross between Shiri and Notting Hill. I don’t know why nobody’s ever done this premise before, but I’m thankful for it now.

The fourth leg of the main character quadrangle is played by Jang Hee-jin, a top actress and hotel heiress. Can we have her fall for the strait-laced sidekick, please? For some reason I think it would be hilarious if Lee Jin-wook’s agent character were tightly wound and utterly humorless, only to find some bratty little princess upsetting his world order.

The story’s crazy enough that it could go either way — hilarious or lame — but I deeply hope it gives us some screwball magic. Also, with both male leads recently out of the army, I don’t suppose it’s too much to ask for double the shower scenes? Oh, all right, I won’t be demanding. Half-nekkid pool shots will do just fine. Or shirtless volleyball.

Spy Myung-wol replaces the just-ended Baby-Faced Beauty on KBS.

very interesting story line.
(btw, is it just me, but does anybody else think han yeusul really looks different now? she must have also fallen prey to what seems like a south korean addiction for plastic surgery.)

"For some reason I think it would be hilarious if Lee Jin-wook’s agent character were tightly wound and utterly humorless, only to find some bratty little princess upsetting his world order." - I'm with you on this! The dynamic would be hilarious to watch. Or, I'd also go for him having to try to romance her in order to keep his partner's true identity a secret. Humorless guy who's never had to woo a girl, suddenly has to.

"Or shirtless volleyball." - Ooooo...yes, please.

I hope this is this sumers MGiGMO, for that tpo happen, at least on some level there has to be an innocence to the female lead and at some point she has to change sides.

Plus they have to make North Korea laughable, even more so then it is.

An entire country run by a bunch of criminals

Check out the story of Sharon and Helo on Battle Star Galactica (The new series)

She is a spy sent to have a baby with a human, but falls in love with him instead and causes all sorts of problems. Now this wasn't a comedy by any means but the plot is similar.

Conflicted Heroine, with life or death steaks. Love it and its a comedy to boot.

God help me.
Just watched this raw and it looks like another good one entering the pipeline.
(BTW - one shower scene down, many to go?)
Not seeing where the screwball comedy is supposed to be introduced. Episode 1 was all about the serious setup. It appears to be a spy/thriller/romance with lots of action - our leading lady is kick-ass good.
As near as I can figure out, Eric's role is based on a superstar of Rain's caliber - tough badass on screen, rock idol for concert scenes - serious character all around.
The pace is fast, supporting characters are well-known actors.
It's going into my lineup at DramaCrazy. If the English subbing is slow, maybe we'll get a breather?

That may be the most beautiful ensemble cast I've ever seen. It's like, those people don't even have to be able to act... just look pretty for an hour.

That's a Royal Enfield motorcycle in those pics. Interesting to see that at least one has made it to Korea.
