Secret missions and warring loyalties in Spy

Badass Mama Spy! How awesome does Bae Jong-ok look in this poster for upcoming action drama Spy? The poster above features Bae taking a protective stance over her son (Jaejoong), and the tagline tells us rather defiantly, “That mission — I’ll do it,” as though telling the guy to back off. There’s a “…so eff off” in there that’s implied, I think.

The show is looking pretty solid so far, what with the stylish teasers and its interesting way of mixing the secret ops factor with the mundane, as we get in the teaser below. Mom is a sleeper agent for the North who’s lived in the South for decades, and when she gets the order to bring her son in, she’s hell-bent on protecting him from being a spy, not knowing that he already is.

In the teaser, she tells her son’s girlfriend (Go Sung-hee) that she wants nothing more than for him to live a happy, ordinary life with a happy, ordinary mate. And of course, Mom’s not about to turn him over without a mighty fight. But it looks like the son may end up controverting her goals to protect him, in his efforts to protect his sweetheart. And the shadowy enemy playing spoiler in all this is Yoo Oh-sung, who ends the teaser by asking, “Shall we test it out, and see how strong your patriotism is?”

Spy will air two episodes every Friday, beginning this week; its first two episodes premiere on KBS on January 9.

This looks like such an interesting switch on a North/South spy story. I usually don't like crime or intrigue dramas but I'm looking forward to this one. Especially seeing more of Go SungHee. Thanks for the update.

Wow! That is one of the best drama posters I've ever seen! I'm really hoping this show is more about the momma than the son & his girlfriend. She's so badass, and it's unusual to find such a badass role for an older woman.

Ditto. After Misaeng I'm so over the romance angle in dramas. They are so repetitive. I want a mama/baby spy story. I'm thrilled they didn't make it father and son. Here's hoping!

The girl! She's a trap!!
The teasers look interesting - especially because of all the 'noble' intentions each side will have: patriotism, protecting son, protecting love, or family, etc....

But I predict !- by like episode 3 or 4, JaeJoong's innocent, regular, next-door-neighbor-girl-who-looks-like-a-model is another sleeper agent! That switches sides! and will double cross our hero! until the last moment when she triple-crosses them all! and Runs away with Healer.

(ahhaa, sorry for the many '!'s and '-'s and also sidetracked reference to another drama__)

.__. out of 26 letters, the chances of us picking the same two...um....these are just initials for me, should I use periods after each letter? Hopefully, we can coexist, without having too much opposing opinions. If not, then you can continue just being the real CZ, i'll just be the irregular one...?

That would probably make the character much more interesting rather than the bland character look she's going for. I honestly FEEL nothing for her character from these pictures.

That's the trap! she's got you too!

It might be the actress~ she was kind of dull wrap up in Miss Korea and haven't heard really anything good from the night watchman drama ...

on the plus side, it'll be no sweat if she does get off'ed for the sake of hero's vengeance or something

I'm concerned it's the actress. I forgot she was in this, but I stuck with Watchman through the whole thing and she was...eh, kind of like that poster. I didn't dislike her as much as some other people but she doesn't inspire any confidence in me either.

Yes, surprise early death would be kind of cool...like Psycho.

That is if she doesn't get killed a couple of time along the way. Healer won't be able to do anything for her so Dr.
Stranger will step in.

Ah yes. This I am pumped for. Out of all the upcoming dramas that we've seen teasers for, this one is the most aesthetically interesting. The dark hues and shadowy-feel is right up my alley. Hope it delivers.

Or the fact that her finger is in the trigger. I was taught in gun class to have my index finger on the side of the trigger until I actually shoot, cause otherwise I might accidentally shoot someone. And that is a no bueno.
And I hear ya @ Hipployta on the ear protection. I am looking forward to watching this drama.

Yoo Oh-sung AND Bae Jung-ok plus Jaejoong.....this has a high chance of being watchable despite the female lead

(I still haven't forgotten that cringe-worthy performance in Night Watchman. Here's hoping that it's only a case of her sucking at playing aegyo and sageuk, her modern-day acting was fine in Miss Korea)

Looking forward to this drama. Jaejoong's a decent actor but aside from Protect the Boss, he has had bad luck in picking good projects. Both Dr. Jin and Triangle sounded promising but the scripts were horrible and the story veered off to the land of WTF were the writers smoking. Hopefully, this drama will be good.

Skipping it. Supporting cast looks more credible than the leads.

I kinda feel bad. I was looking at the posters thinking…"He is the prettiest one in this show!"

*drops head in shame*

But, regardless…beyond JaeJoong's obvious draw, it is the MOTHER story-line and baddassedness that makes me want to see this show. I will be there.

I'm so with you on both comments!

Looking forward to seeing Bae Jong-Ok play bad-ass spy mom. Combine that with Kim Mi-Kyung playing bad-ass hacker on "Healer" and it's a great month for the older actresses. Now if bad-ass spy mom meets a sexy spy ajusshi, my life will be complete.

haha I had the same thoughts! I was like ' can you imagine acting with a man that was prettier than you? lol I was trying to not say anything but I had to reply to you lool. Jaejoong man, you're too flawless for anybody <3

In regards to the drama, I may actually watch this one woohoo. I will prob first read the recaps (if there are any) and then decide though.

Lucky Go Sunghee to be paired up with Yunho and Jaejoong in successive dramas. LMAO YunJae shippers must hate her so much but I'm just frankly jealous she gets to interact a lot with my ultimate oppas.
