Spy: Episode 9

We finally get a few long-awaited explanations in this episode, though they do little to quench the thirst for answers in this world of spies. Learning what that hard drive contains and why it’s so important counts for something, right? Suspicion runs high in all of our relationships as the clues start to bring bits of the truth to light, and a new face threatens to actually get this mission in motion. With all this intelligence-gathering going on, one might think that analyzing dossiers is the only thing spies get to do in this world.

EPISODE 9 RECAP

1988. Shenyang, China. After Mom finds out that she’s pregnant, she calls Dad from the hospital, asking him to meet her later tonight because she has something to get off of her chest. She’ll tell him everything—if she survives, that is.

That takes us back to the flashback we’ve previously seen: the one where Mom informed Ki-chul that she’s with child. He had told her to abort the baby, but Mom declared that she’ll have it because it’s “that person” (aka Dad’s) child.

Those words, however, has Ki-chul smugly return that the chances that he’s the baby’s father are higher. He receives a firm slap across the face for that remark, and Mom vows to live a decent life from now on, sick of the grunt work she’s been subjected to do.

But Ki-chul won’t stand to see her run off and living happily in the South. Instead, he tells her that their orders are to bring the South Korean man into the North. When Mom protests, he pins her down on the table, reminding her through gritted teeth to pull herself together.

Mom fakes a sudden bout of nausea so she can run out of there. Once she’s at a safe distance, she takes out a detonator. Inside, Ki-chul checks her purse and discovers a beeping item—remember that GPS tracker-looking object she still carries with her in the present?

Yeah, that’s a bomb, because Mom sets it off moments later. Oh Mom, still depending on the same over a quarter-century-old (failed) killing method as your getaway? Someone ’round these parts have got to hook her up with better tech.

We know that Sun-woo was eventually born and grew up to be the spy he is today. Which brings us back to the present as Sun-woo is left speechless at the discovery of seeing Ki-chul and Mom standing together.

The meeting is brief, and Sun-woo climbs out of his car to chase Ki-chul’s van on foot. Unfortunately, he loses the van and picks up Hyun-tae’s call to apologetically inform that he must have been mistaken.

Sun-woo beelines it for the office to sift through the files on the Shen-yang explosion and sees a blurry image of a woman that resembles Mom. Speaking of whom, Mom tucks something away in the secret compartment of her bathroom mirror, then takes her medication again.

Sun-woo puts in a request to track the van, and for some reason his software records a better match between that photo and the barely recognizable face from the subway than a clear photo of Mom. Still, it leaves him rattled. Someone tell me he’s figured it out now.

Ki-chul tells the unknown caller on the other end (whose voice we actually get to hear) that despite their failed mission tonight, they’ll still be able to pick up the item in a few days’ time. He stops short upon seeing his unlocked front door and approaches with caution in the darkness.

Ki-chul drops his things, however, upon seeing the source of the unknown caller—a fellow North Korean comrade, Oh Tae-shik. Comrade Oh had been sent down because Ki-chul wasn’t getting things done fast enough. He also appears to outrank Ki-chul despite being younger than him, and tsks at how Ki-chul could’ve been seated in a higher position if only he hadn’t made that mistake back then.

Comrade Oh isn’t impressed by the decision to use Sun-woo’s parents to carry out their grunt work, particularly Mom, whom he regards as no better than a traitor to the government. She must be killed, he states.

Comrade Oh turns out the contents of Ki-chul’s wallet (which I realize may still contain Sun-woo’s family photo inside), then relays his mocking concern that their superiors aren’t happy with Ki-chul, given the slow progress of his mission to capture Sun-woo and search for the traitor.

But what Comrade Oh wants to know is why Ki-chul didn’t report how Mom was still alive and if any lingering feelings are to blame for Ki-chul’s peculiar kindness towards her. To that, Ki-chul shows him the still-evident injuries on his hand, saying that Mom was the one that did this to him.

He’ll be the one to get rid of Mom and prove his sincerity, Ki-chul vows. That finally gets a laugh out of Comrade Oh, who promises to put in a good word for him with their North Korean superiors. But Ki-chul is nothing if not wary when it comes to a surprise guest in his home; he slowly reaches for the inside of his coat, but removes it when other men show up at the door.

Before he leaves, Comrade Oh leaves him with the reminder that he’s in charge now. All missions are halted until he’s satisfied with the way things are going. It’s only after Comrade Oh is gone does Ki-chul remove the torn piece of Mom’s picture tucked inside his wallet. It also looks like Ki-chul’s been keeping count of the days on the back.

Sun-woo stays up all night at his desk, contemplating about Soo-yeon’s words of the failed mission in China because of a female North Korean. He doesn’t pick up Mom’s call when she tries to reach him. Mom lights up at an incoming text, only to deflate when it’s Ki-chul informing her that their mission has been postponed.

Eun-ah is adorably singing praises about Mom as she comes into work that morning with Hyun-tae. She envies the harmonious relationships within Sun-woo’s family, an idea Hyun-tae is quick to stab a pin at.

Citing that an outsider never truly knows what’s going on inside the home, Hyun-tae says he didn’t know how his wife truly felt until she asked for a divorce. He sidesteps the question of why he came to dinner last night when he had no interest beforehand.

Hyun-tae sends Eun-ah out on a coffee run when he sees Sun-woo at the office. At the question of why Sun-woo believed he was mistaken, Sun-woo spins the half-truth that he saw a van that looked like Ki-chul’s but wasn’t.

But Hyun-tae doesn’t buy that story, and brings up how Sun-woo had replied in his lie detector test that he wasn’t hiding anything from them. He hopes that that statement is true because he doesn’t want to lose another agent. Although Sun-woo assures him that that won’t happen, Hyun-tae can’t shake off his suspicions.

Sun-woo runs into Eun-ah on his way out and asks her to identify the pill he found in Mom’s bathroom.

Yoon-jin receives a fax under Mom’s name which notes a time and place. She barely gets to dwell on it before Comrade Oh waltzes in under the pretense of a customer. All it takes is one look inside his passport — which contains a photo of her family — for Yoon-jin to freeze on the spot. Comrade Oh continues to taunt her, wondering if she’s seeing anyone.

Dad is pleased when Sun-woo pays him a quick visit at the workplace, though his face falls when Sun-woo asks if he’s noticed that Mom’s been acting a bit different lately. Dad feigns ignorance to the assumption, blaming his son’s sense that Mom’s been more sensitive and like a different person as menopausal symptoms.

But Sun-woo presses the point further—that is, until Dad mentions that they need to understand Mom because she’s concerned about how their son is in a dangerous line of work. Dad manages to cover up that slip of the tongue by citing how Sun-woo ended up in the hospital during his last “business trip,” and then adds that he and Mom are just worried for him.

Sun-woo keeps a smile on his face until he leaves Dad’s office. As for Dad, he immediately calls Mom to let her know that their son seems to suspect something. Mom reassures him that she has a way to find out without getting caught…

…though that doesn’t really work out for her when Sun-woo arrives home and discovers a bug in his room. He thinks of all the oddities — the mention of a mysterious “uncle,” how Mom had known that Eun-ah had spent time abroad, and how Dad had known that his job was a dangerous one.

All those pictures of Maybe Mom are what sticks out in his mind, though, and then Sun-woo spills out the contents of his bag before taking a knife to it. He discovers yet another bug hidden inside, only to drop it into the sink when little sis Young-seo arrives home unexpectedly.

Sun-woo wraps the microphone in a wad of gum before turning to his sister to ask about the uncle she mentioned last night. He’s unaware of the other bug in the ceiling lamp that allows Ki-chul to listen in on their conversation, instead pegging Young-seo with questions about that visitor.

When Young-seo describes him as a rather skinny and scary-looking man with a scar, Sun-woo rushes to show her an old photo of Ki-chul. Young-seo confirms that it’s the same man, and moments later, Sun-woo takes a call from Ki-chul himself, who says it’s about time that they meet.

Identifying himself as the “uncle” they were talking about, Ki-chul wonders how Sun-woo had known of the bug, since he’d seen it go off-line a little while ago. Had anyone told him about it?

Sun-woo figures that must mean Ki-chul is still listening in somehow, which Ki-chul acknowledges. However, there’s much for Sun-woo to learn as well. He offers to satiate Sun-woo’s curiosity once they meet.

After making sure that little sis will keep this conversation a secret, Sun-woo heads out to his car to get his gun. And boy, let me tell you I’ve never been so happy to see some sort of actual firearm in this show. Is he planning to meet Ki-chul to avenge his fallen secret agent?

Director Jung is none too pleased to hear that Chief Song failed in his password-cracking mission. Now we know that the encrypted hard drive contains information about the deceased North Korean general Jang Sung-taek’s slush fund.

What’s worse is that the director has already promised the money to the National Assembly, but Chief Song has a number to the amount: about one billion won. Chief Song asks for some more time, promising his superior that they’re nearly there.

It sure seems like Director Jung is aiming for bigger and better things by promising those illegal funds to the politicians, and now we know that Chief Song is in on this plan because there’s a possible career advancement in it for him. However, Director Jung reminds him that they’ve already past the point of no return, and if this plan backfires and someone needs to take the fall, it’ll be on him.

So Chief Song heads straight for Dad’s company with a band of agents trailing behind him. Then Chief Song comes clean about his and Sun-woo’s real jobs by showing him his NIS badge, using the argument that this is an urgent matter that concerns national security.

Yoon-jin follows Mom’s instructions to meet her later that evening and takes a seat next to Mom on the practically empty bus. Mom asks if Yoon-jin knows anything about why the mission was postponed, and Yoon-jin’s “I’m not at liberty to say” response is pretty much a dead giveaway that she indeed knows something.

Mom asks if it involves Sun-woo, only to get another “I’m not at liberty to say” reply, though this one is less stilted. Mom asks if they weren’t on the same page about loving and protecting Sun-woo in this mission, to which Yoon-jin answers, “I have a family too.”

Her feelings about Sun-woo might not change, but if she had to choose between love or family, she’d have to choose the latter. That’s certainly an interesting way to phrase that statement, and while Mom accepts that answer, she does note that it was her mistake to trust Yoon-jin for a moment in time.

Telling Yoon-jin to protect her family, Mom vows to do the same with hers. Yoon-jin rises to get off the bus just then, though not before telling Mom of a new person-in-charge of the mission. These will be the last words she leaves Mom with, Yoon-jin says, and asks not to go looking for her anymore.

Sun-woo pulls up to the same abandoned warehouse where Yoon-jin had first received her mission. He climbs out with his gun in hand and approaches just as Ki-chul exits the building…

… and makes that familiar gesture across his face. Go time it is, then.

 
COMMENTS

This is going to sound odd, but I’m actually glad that there’s another spy running around in this dramaverse, if only to break the monotonous interactions between people who know everyone else within two degrees. In a short span of time, Comrade Oh has proven to be a frightening presence, even if he’s currently acting as a messenger pigeon between Ki-chul’s mission and the higher-ups in the North. He’s also the first person to call Ki-chul out for being uncharacteristically nice.

I’m also relieved that we finally got some explanations to some plot points, particularly in the case of Chief Song’s mysterious hard drive. Not only does knowing that the drive contains intel on the deceased North Korean general Jang’s slush fund reveal Chief Song and Director Jung’s motivations, it also serves to explain why Ki-chul and his crew would be after it. I’d assume that Ki-chul’s mission involves something to the manner of recovering that drive for the North, though that also begs the question of how it arrived in Chief Song’s hands in the first place because it does seem like the hard drive suddenly appeared one day.

Although the revelation of Director Jung’s motivation for those illegal funds was weak and anticlimactic, we knew so little about the man in the first place that I could buy his shady desire to keep the corruption in politics running like a well-oiled machine. I might not understand why the funds had to come from the North and not through a different channel right now, but it certainly seems like that One Hard Drive is the reason why the North crossed the 38th parallel in the first place.

How that specifically involves Sun-woo is still a mystery, and now I’m waiting for that unveiling like I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop. And while we saw Sun-woo actually doing things and taking small steps towards discovering the truth, we also saw him spend a lot of contemplating as well. Which is fine so long as we also know what our hero is thinking. Yet there were a few instances where I thought he might have known that Mom used to be spy, but couldn’t be entirely sure.

All of the clues are either in plain sight or at your feet, Sun-woo—the sooner you arrive at the realization, the faster we can let the bullets fly.

i agree with TORA,

please everyone, i know we all have freedom of speech to say what we wants. but please, drama thread (or recaps thread) are for people who love the drama (or interested) OR at least have a constructive critism for the show.

whether you dislike the plot, directing, actors etc its your preference. but by keep on coming to this thread only to say a sentence with a negative critism without reason, please hold back. go to your own blog, twitter or else to rants.

PLEASE for the sake of person who tried to get to know this drama, and loving this drama (me included),please leave a CONSTRUCTIVE COMMENTS or just say thank you for the recap if you dont have anything to say.

tbh,all these comments felt bitter that i almost have no interest to check the recap.

sometimes, i think it's not comments for drama recap, BUT A PLACE FOR ANTIS TO COMMENT ON A DRAMA.

i don't want to start a fanwar, but this is my opinion as a viewer who love this drama so far.

and if you ask what am i doing writing these Bulls*it, without commenting, it's because I havent watch this eps yet. i actually came just to read recapper's comment, but again and again, the top comments are not pleasing for the eyes.

peace,

Thank you for saying this. It's the recapper's efforts and time spent to write the recap. And it's for the viewers to discuss n comment on recap. If the pictures are boring to you n you are not watching the drama, no need to comment. I don't go n leave comments on the dramas that I don't watch. Plain simple! Let others have a conversation n discussion about the drama.

I think as long as nobody's saying anything offending to anyone, then we can post what we want (good or not good) about a drama. Nothing's stopping anyone from singing praises about whatever drama they like, so we shouldn't stop others from voicing out their dislike about dramas they don't feel. If we can say a drama "looks good" based on a trailer alone, others can say a drama is "boring" based on the photos. Besides, if you truly love a drama, no amount of negative comments can stop you from enjoying it. And to those who don't want to watch because they think it's boring, then it's their loss.

Or not. To each his/her own.

I'm glad the drama is coming to its crucial turn. It's picking up speed and reaching it's climax. Ep 9 (and 10) I watched twice.. there were some great heartracing and scary moments. Jaejoong's stunned reaction when he finds his mother is meeting GiChul was awesome. His acting has improved so much after Triangle and you can see it in every episode of Spy. Drama is getting better now after a couple of boring episodes. If uou watch ep 10, you will realize how Seonwoo is trapped from all sides n there is no way for him to save his mom and still not give in to GiChul. And he is yet to find out about his girlfriend being a spy. That is going to break his heart. Can't wait for next episodes.

I had initially thought how it's possible that he didn't know his girlfriend is a Spy. I mean considering he himself is a NIS agent. But then seeing new episodes I realized how it's impossible to suspect of your family n lover to be a spy. He himself is hiding from them that he works as NIS agent. And everyone inside the NIS is being secretive n to the point. It's not easy to find who is loyal n who is a mole. Seonwoo is going to be heartbroken to find out about his girlfriend. Its going to be interesting to see how he would save his family, gf and himself from the bad guys without going against his own country.

YooJin is a spy thats planted just to know what Seonu does, she is pick for her similiarity with HyeRim, and as SoYeon said they literally knows nothing so not much to hide either
and mom being a sleeper spy just got naggy habit and conservatively avoids people outside her family which what makes Seonu surprised when Dad ask his team to come for dinner

Just laugh for the people who said boring..ignore them!! LOL

This drama is another level of kind of Kdramas..im enjoyed it so much!! True it's rather slow pace but i think the writer did a good job to reveal facts one by one..

The premise was clear in the beginning, even the title itself..it's about SPY..so why we're surprised if the story all about spies? <33

It's interesting when the Hero Spy got his awareness for his mom being a spy...the tiger already woke up..red alert for the bad buddies!! XD now i'm anticipating more for our Hero's actions..his combination with gun was so sexy! <33

Drama was slow in couple of ep when I think the writers tried to reveal too much of information which viewers already knew. In undercover drama/movies, it's important to keep the viewers guessing n revealing less secrets to them, so the scenes become surprising. They lost that pace a bit. But now that momentum has come back. I'm super excited for the next episodes.

Thanks for the recap Gummimochi.

"Sun-woo stays up all night at his desk, contemplating about Soo-yeon’s words of the failed mission in China because of a female North Korean."

So Sun-Woo just discovered and came across evidence that Mom's a spy. We know that all along Sun-Woo's been searching for answers and distinctly bothered by the failed mission in China. Right now he probably suspects Mom of working with Ki-Chul to sabotage both his missions - the last one in China and the one with Soo-Yeon. Now despite the fact he constantly shared his 'work/travel itinerary' with Yoon-Jin; she just doesn't ping or register on his radar. But for Mom & Dad it's a different story; even though he lied to them about the actual nature of his job & travels.

Although it'll be a double whammy for Sun-Woo, I'm looking forward to the day he finds out Yoon-Jin was a North Korean spy all along. Hopefully he'll bestow upon Mom & Dad the unconditional love & support he's been blatantly duped into giving Yoon-Jin.

Yeah, we're at episode 9 with 7 more to go. But, I have to ask...

Boo-hoo Ship #1 (Sun-Woo & Soo-Yeon) is kaput. Does Ship #2 (Sun-Woo & Eun-Ah) stand a snowball's chance in he** of ever seeing the light of day?

I like the story of this drama and the recap done by dramabeans. I will agree with other people that watching this drama is boring and hard to watch the entire hour of it.

This has to be the first drama which I find the story really interesting but the drama itself is bad and boring.

It will be nice if you can point out where the drama has gone bad and wrong. Rather than spilling them from nowhere. Then, it is constructive comment. Moreover, they are quite a number of viewers here like the drama and give constructive comments, good or bad.

As for the drama, I particularly enjoy ep. 9 & 10. The revelations and pace were well made. Can't wait for ep. 10's recap.

Thanks for the recap, Gummimochi :)

Just from skimming I found 4 people that found this drama is boring.....

The story is very generic spy plot, nothing to really make it stand out.

Quite honestly, Jaejoong acting is not good. I'm not saying he is a bad actor but he isnt very good; he always sounds bored or sad and when he does try to act happy I can feel like its forced.

To be quite honest if I had to change something about this drama it would be to make Jaejoon a side character and have a full-time actor play the lead.

I always think the main character here is the mom from the story and in the drama it's sound like the focus is about a badass mom who try to protect her son and jaejoong character is a boring officer (before he knew the whole story about his mom I think this episode interesting because the main story is the son now ?) i'm quit disappointed with how the make the mom so week like this and she just doing a boring stuff with stalking everything her son did and the enemy ask. Can't she is more badass like using a gun and shoot all their enemy. But that just me

Its a remake of Israeli show Gordin Cell. Have you seen the US remake of Gordin Cell? Its called Allegiance. If you happen to watch the US version, you will find similar spy plot. But I didn;t find Allegiance boring either.

Again, I find Jaejoong's acting is very well in Spy. Maybe because I have seen most of his drama and film and I love what I see that Jaejoong has accomplished so much as an actor. Well he gets a top excellent award for his role in Triangle. But, people are free to like or dislike Jaejoong's acting. anyway.

Last week on an American TV channel, NBC I saw the first episode of a new show called Allegiance and the set up is remarkably similar to that of Spy. Mother was/is a KGB/FSB spy and son works for the CIA, her handlers want her son to work for them. As I sat watching it I was amazed by the parallels. Then I began to wonder how two such similar shows could show up on network TV stations in two different countries several weeks apart, it is just very interesting.

I have seen the premier of Allegiance.

Yes, the show and Spy are remarkably similar. We got protective mom and a genius son..except that in Allegiance, there is a sister who is also a spy, having an affair with mom's handler. How could the daughter? There are two different elements I saw in Allegiance as compared to Spy that, Alex is portrayed as super genius and takes on the first spy assignment from the very beginning. As for Spy, we saw Sunwoo is played out as a nice and lovable son, which I love too :) and the grave and cruel torture befall on the KGB traitor. In Spy, we saw Kichul mentioned the death by burning but not the actual execution.

I love the song on this episode
Quite right with the mood of the scence
Still don't like the GF
She really can't act
I always cry with the characters
But this girl made me feel nothing
Opposite with JJ
I am not his fan
This is his first drama for me
But he got acting skill with his beauty face ^^
Acting with eyes and expression are really something

Only wish the GF will die soon 5555
