Spy: Episodes 11-12

Love and truth don’t quite go hand in hand as everyone seems to get a gun and a little extra motivation this week, leading to a few confrontations that end with more than just empty threats and dark promises. Blood is shed, hearts are broken, and Sun-woo gains some clarity of focus he didn’t even know he was missing before everything in his life got turned upside down. Now that he’s no longer wandering in the dark and this is what we can expect from him, this show just got a whole lot more interesting.

As for the recap double header, I’m just filling in for gummimochi this round, and we’ll return to our regularly scheduled programming next week the week after next, due to Lunar New Year pre-emptions.

EPISODES 11-12

Sun-woo’s hand drops from the grip of his gun when Ki-chul asks if he’s made his decision, since he has: He’ll do whatever Ki-chul wants, on the condition that he delete all the incriminating spy data he’s collected on Mom and Dad.

While Comrade Oh gets the message that Sun-woo’s come over to the dark side, Mom grabs a knife at home when one of the North’s cronies tries and fails to break in to her house.

Sun-woo is alerted to the attempted breach via the wonders of technology, but Ki-chul passes it off, claiming that his decision has saved his family. Yoon-jin also gets let off the hook for her treasonous decision to save Young-seo, since the mission to kidnap her gets aborted anyway.

Ki-chul’s first mission for Sun-woo is to steal that hard drive, which he claims was brought in by a North Korean defector. If he pulls it off successfully, no one—including his family—will get hurt.

Too bad Sun-woo’s not feeling as chummy as Ki-chul is when he offers to get rid of the location tracker Mom planted in his phone, and returns the older man’s “We’re on the same side now!” smile with a look of scorn. He also refuses to shake Comrade Oh’s welcoming hand on his way out.

Sun-woo returns home after Mom belatedly realizes he knows her secret, since he’s found not only the bugs in his room but her written confession as well.

Things are tense between them at first, but Mom finally breaks the ice when she says she has something to tell him. Sun-woo interrupts to say that he’s always been afraid to be brutally honest with her ever since he was young, since he never wanted to worry her.

But because he loves her and knows she feels the same, he doesn’t sugarcoat what comes out next: She can step aside now. He’ll handle Ki-chul from here.

Mom’s eyes go wide as saucers as she shakes her head adamantly, claiming that she can fix this whole mess. Sun-woo throws that back at her by asking how she plans to do that—by spying on him like she’s been doing?

He tells her she’s deluded if she thinks she can fix everything by turning herself in, since nothing would change. Besides, he knows more about spying in the modern age than she does, and his way would spare their family.

He challenges her as to whether she’s ever thought of Young-seo and what turning herself in would do to her, causing Mom to answer back unconvincingly, “I’ll protect her. Our family… I’ll protect all of us—“

“If you wanted to protect us,” Sun-woo cuts in, his tone biting and his eyes gleaming with unshed tears. “If you really wanted to protect us, you should have told me everything from the start. If you had…”

Mom grips his arm to stop him from walking away, having to speak to his turned back as she cries that she’s never had a moment’s peace since she had him, since she was always worried about doing the right thing by him.

But what Sun-woo says next stops her dead in her tracks, his words coming like a punch to the gut: “Then you shouldn’t have had me. If you didn’t, none of this wouldn’t happen.”

Only when he’s turned away from her does he let his own tears fall, knowing how much he must be hurting her. He attempts to make a getaway only for Mom to jump in front of his car, crying that she has more to say. He drives away anyway.

He has a much more levelheaded phone confrontation with Dad, and even discusses strategy with him after they clear the air of secrets between them. He’s planning to involve Chief Song, since he can make the records on Mom disappear if he agrees to catch Ki-chul for him.

Besides, Dad’s company has the only software capable of cracking that hard drive for him, so they’ll have some leverage. Dad says he’ll do whatever he can to help before apologizing again, prompting Sun-woo to recall something he’d said once about doing something wholeheartedly to avoid having regrets in the future.

Now, he says, he understands what Dad meant. He’s going to see this through till the bitter end.

Later that night, Young-seo has her own blowout fight with Mom when proof of her rising grade point average gets met with distracted apathy. She doesn’t understand why Mom won’t stop calling Sun-woo and finally blurts out that she knows Mom likes him better than her, even if Sun-woo is getting tired of Mom.

Mom finally breaks down in tears as she cries that she’s acting out of fear that Sun-woo and Young-seo might get hurt, an outburst which only makes her daughter angrier since she doesn’t know what’s going on.

Afterward, Mom continues calling an unresponsive Sun-woo, finally leaving him a damning message with the truth about Yoon-jin being a spy for Ki-chul. Yikes.

He clearly doesn’t check that message before he goes to Yoon-jin to tell her that he won’t be able to see her for a little while while he’s off doing dangerous work for the good of his family.

He pulls her into a tight embrace. “When I’m with you, I’m happy and comfortable. I understand why now. It’s because I don’t have to hide my true self when I’m with you. When this ends, I’ll live only for you. I promise.”

Yoon-jin reports Sun-woo’s strange behavior to Comrade Oh, but is surprised when he appears right outside her door. He’s got another mission for her, but it involves him taking a picture of his lackeys restraining her for Sun-woo…

Mom has Dad believing that she agrees with his stance to let Sun-woo handle this from here on out, when in reality she’s preparing to go into battle alone.

She leaves Young-seo some allowance money and apologizes to her sleeping form: “I’m not doing this because I don’t love you. One day you’ll come to understand a mother’s heart.” Young-seo only reveals she wasn’t asleep after Mom’s gone.

While Mom follows old intel to buy a gun from Chinese peddlers, Eun-ah gives Sun-woo an antidote kit for the North’s infamous poison pens. It’ll only work if injected within three minutes of being poisoned, though.

Sun-woo gets Chief Song’s attention when he reveals that he knows that the Supervisor came to the South with the hard drive, though their meeting is cut short when Director Jung interrupts with an urgent matter.

He doesn’t have time to wait around for him to return when Comrade Oh sends him a video of Yoon-jin being gagged and tied, telling him he has one hour to deliver the hard drive if he wants to save her.

Sun-woo jumps behind Chief Song’s desk and calls Comrade Oh to warn him that he’ll get nothing if he doesn’t let Yoon-jin go. Oh just threatens back that he’ll start chopping off her fingers if he doesn’t change his mind, prompting Sun-woo to ask that they just kill him instead—Yoon-jin has nothing to do with any of this. How very wrong he is.

While Hyun-tae belatedly figures out that Sun-woo just walked out of the office with the hard drive, Mom marches into Ki-chul’s office and points her gun straight at his forehead.

Another quick cut shows Hyun-tae pulling a gun on Sun-woo in the parking garage before we cut back to Comrade Oh leaving Yoon-jin a Chinese passport—they’ll all be leaving for China after this mission ends.

Ki-chul won’t be invited though, since Comrade Oh plans to kill him. He trusts Yoon-jin now that he believes she’s not working for Ki-chul, and spouts some nonsense about how he’ll be giving the orders from now on.

Hyun-tae isn’t happy about pointing a gun at Sun-woo, but admits that things haven’t been adding up recently—especially since he did some research on Mom and found no records on her before the age of twenty. Does he think Sun-woo is a double agent?

Even though Sun-woo says he has to deliver the hard drive in order to save his girlfriend, Hyun-tae says that’s not the solution despite the fact that he doesn’t have a better one.

He’s got his own self interests to protect too, since he’s only in this to catch the Supervisor, which Chief Song promised he could do. Sun-woo asks if he could recognize the Supervisor, and Hyun-tae says he can, since he’s missing two fingers.

But he’s stopped right before he slaps handcuffs on his wrists when Sun-woo says that Chief Song knows where the Supervisor is, because he’s in the country seeking asylum.

Sun-woo uses the momentary lapse to whip around on Hyun-tae, throwing him against the car. He tries to convince him that Chief Song has been lying to him, but Hyun-tae doesn’t buy it and lunges at him instead.

They exchange words and blows, neither man willing to give up and relent. It’s actually a pretty neat fight scene, until it ends with Sun-woo giving Hyun-tae a firm kick to the solar plexus.

He’s apologetic for it as well as the handcuffs he uses to keep Hyun-tae in place for now, though he leaves him with the listening device Ki-chul gave him so he can make his own decisions about Chief Song.

Ki-chul calls Mom out on her flimsy reasoning for wanting to kill him, since she somehow thinks that doing so would erase any reasons for the North to want Sun-woo. But he bursts her bubble when he tells her that Sun-woo’s already working for them.

She calls Sun-woo in a panic, but he ignores her calls as he prepares to take the hard drive into Yoon-jin’s apartment… but not before replacing the core with the fake Ki-chul gave him.

Ki-chul is aware that he’s been left out of Comrade Oh’s reindeer games, and all but yawns at Mom’s threats to apprehend them all so that she can take the blame for being a spy instead of Sun-woo.

He tells her that’s not possible, since they’re damned to be exposed as a family of spies if Sun-woo gives that hard drive over to Comrade Oh. Mom only grows more agitated, causing Ki-chul to ask if she still hates him so much she wants to kill him, both thirty years ago and now.

She says yes, only for him to ask if it counts at all that he never revealed she was alive. The only reason she’s been able to live free up until now is because of his sacrifice, but Mom doesn’t respond to his kicked puppy routine with gratitude.

Ki-chul presents her with a proposition: If she can save her family by disappearing and he can’t return to the North anyway, what if they were to ride off into the sunset together? They could just make a deal with Chief Song using the hard drive.

But Mom again levels the gun at his forehead: “Both of us should have died back then. Then none of this would have happened.” You know what else wouldn’t have happened? This show. Let’s stop with the coulda woulda shoulda, people.

Meanwhile, Sun-woo cocks his gun and walks into Yoon-jin’s apartment where Comrade Oh and his lackeys are waiting…

When Episode 12 begins, we rewind a bit to the moments before Sun-woo’s grand entrance, with Yoon-jin and Comrade Oh discussing his fate. Oh is one of those explanation-happy villains, and goes into detail about his exact reasoning behind his plan to kill Sun-woo. As usual in spy dramas, it’s because He Knows Too Much.

But Yoon-jin makes a case for him while making it seem like she’s just being pragmatic, since they’ll draw the attention of the NIS if they were to kill the person they’re now chasing (because he stole the hard drive).

She denies having any feelings for him when she asks for Sun-woo’s life, and whether Comrade Oh actually buys it is up for debate. For now, he claims he does, and agrees to spare Sun-woo as long as he keeps to himself.

Sun-woo makes his appearance soon enough, and holds a gun to their tech’s head while Comrade Oh keeps his gun trained on Yoon-jin’s. The hard drive tests positive for authenticity, leading Oh to believe Sun-woo delivered on his promise.

Tensions are high, but Comrade Oh talks everyone down with that tiring grin of his before he and his lackeys leave. Sun-woo grabs Yoon-jin in an embrace, but she pushes him away just as fast, claiming she feels suffocated.

Then, unexpectedly, she suddenly blurts the truth: She works as a spy for the North, for Ki-chul. Sun-woo’s mouth opens, but he can’t find any words.

Cut to: Mom still holding a gun to Ki-chul’s head as he receives a text that Comrade Oh acquired the hard drive. It’s now or never.

Cut back to: Sun-woo reacting with disbelief, at least until Yoon-jin tells him that he was her mission all along. Even their first meeting was a plan hatched by Ki-chul.

He’s heartbroken, but that’s the point—Yoon-jin wants to hurt him, to make him feel like she never even liked him at all. Uh oh. Someone’s going noble idiot?

Sun-woo doesn’t want to believe her, but she gives him no choice when she claims responsibility for Soo-yeon’s death. She’d ratted about the operation he told her about in confidence. But more importantly, if he doesn’t leave now to protect Mom, both she and Ki-chul will be killed.

That’s the last straw, and Sun-woo’s desperate hold on her shoulders turns to a chokehold on her neck in the blink of an eye. They fall onto the couch with him on top, his hands still locked on her throat and eyes brimming with unshed tears.

She doesn’t try to defend herself, and Sun-woo finally lets go. Gasping, she tells him where he can find Mom, and he climbs off her numbly.

Before he goes, he asks if she lied when she said she loved him. Tears fill her eyes as she replies, “I never loved you.”

While Ki-chul commends Yoon-jin for reporting to him, Sun-woo listens belatedly to Mom’s voicemail outing her as a spy. He feels betrayed—who hasn’t been keeping secrets from him at this point?

Mom’s arms haven’t gotten tired of holding that gun, giving Ki-chul enough time to hold another conversation about running away together. But to save her family, they’ll need that hard drive.

Hyun-tae enlists Eun-ah’s help in searching for the handcuff keys Sun-woo threw in the garage, and even faced with that, she has a hard time believing Sun-woo is the bad guy Chief Song has everyone chasing.

Comrade Oh saunters back into the office with the hard drive, ready to get rid of Ki-chul once and for all. Mom pulls a gun on Oh, only for Comrade Hong to put a gun to her head and take her weapon. And the Worst Spy Ever award goes to…

To make matters worse, Comrade Oh gives Mom another gun along with the option of killing Ki-chul to spare herself. Mom just points it back at Comrade Oh and demands the hard drive, and pulls the trigger when he hesitates.

…But nothing happens. The gun is blank. Comrade Oh tells his lackeys to finish them off, only to have one of his lackeys turn the gun on him. Ki-chul’s bought their loyalty.

Now it’s Comrade Oh’s turn to panic, though he doesn’t for long—when Ki-chul realizes he doesn’t have the hard drive’s password, he shoots him through a pillow. Oh, finally. Thank you.

After killing any lackeys still loyal to Comrade Oh, Ki-chul calls the police to report a murder. He’s counting on Sun-woo to be there when they arrive, and forces Mom to go with him.

Chief Song calls Sun-woo to threaten him into returning the hard drive he stole lest his whole family be outed for espionage, but Sun-woo buys himself a little more time by threatening him back—it’s not like Song is innocent in all this anyway.

He tries calling Mom after escaping police notice, but has no luck in reaching her or Ki-chul. The only other person who could possibly know about their whereabouts is Yoon-jin.

Chief Song can’t use official manpower to catch Sun-woo without exposing the hard drive they’re not even supposed to have. Hyun-tae uses the device Sun-woo gave him to listen in on his conversation, which also proves that both Song and Director Jung know where the Supervisor is.

Unaware that Chief Song has put out an order to kill him and retrieve the hard drive, Sun-woo confronts Yoon-jin in an airport bathroom. He demands she tell him where Ki-chul has taken his mother, and loses his cool when she refuses, yelling, “People have died!”

He’s referring to the bloodbath he found at Ki-chul’s HQ, but Yoon-jin isn’t about to put his family over hers and tries getting past him. He won’t let her, and a fight ensues—he blocks most of her blows, finally having to restrain her against the wall.

He tells her he doesn’t hate her even with the way things have turned out, but begs her to be truthful with him just this once. “Would you believe me if I told you? Would you trust me after I deceived you all this time?” she asks.

“No, I can’t trust you,” Sun-woo replies, just as he cuffs one of her wrists to his. I love his reaction to her claim that she didn’t know he’d stoop so low just to find out where Ki-chul is: “I guess you don’t know me that well.”

While Hyun-tae tries to locate the Supervisor, Yoon-jin reluctantly helps Sun-woo figure out where Ki-chul has taken Mom—if he needs the hard drive password cracked, and there’s only one person capable of cracking it…

Ki-chul calls ahead to let Dad know he’s got Mom on ice before they arrive at his office, leaving Dad too stricken with concern to answer Sun-woo’s call.

So Sun-woo calls Eun-ah to tell her to divert the team tracking him to his father’s company, where they’ll be able to find Ki-chul soon. If all the office fuss has caused her any doubts about him, she doesn’t let them stop her from following his request.

Hyun-tae tracks down hospital room 502 supposedly containing the Supervisor only to come up empty, until he realizes that there’s a fifth floor in the underground morgue, too. That’s where he finds the body of the Supervisor, missing fingers and all.

Sun-woo has to drag Yoon-jin out of the car just in time to see Ki-chul heading for his father’s office, sans Mom. Does that mean she’s still in the van?

Dad immediately asks about Mom when Ki-chul brings the hard drive to him, even though he claims Mom will be returned to him as soon as he cracks the password.

Gripping Yoon-jin’s hand to hide the handcuffs binding them, Sun-woo bursts down the office door, pistol whips the guard, and finally aims the gun right at Ki-chul’s head.

“Kim Sun-woo,” Ki-chul acknowledges, as everyone else in the room—including Dad—freezes. Sun-woo says nothing, his finger tightening on the trigger…

 
COMMENTS

I swear I’m not just saying this because I wasn’t Yoon-jin’s biggest fan, but I hope those two never reconcile. Honestly, I was half-expecting Sun-woo to throw himself the biggest pity party ever after finding out he was only ever just a mission for Yoon-jin, but he totally surprised me by going in the complete opposite direction.

And wouldn’t you know it, it made his scenes with Yoon-jin about a hundred times more interesting. Doe-eyed puppy dog Sun-woo gave way to Pissed Off With A Purpose Sun-woo, which is probably my favorite Sun-woo of the series. It’s like a switch got flipped to turn the show into overdrive, and not a moment too soon either. Turns out you can control the pace when you give your hero a real and pressing job to do. Who knew?

Past a few tears, it’s hard to tell if Yoon-jin felt much of anything for Sun-woo. Her contradictory actions don’t help to clear things up, and while they’d seem to hint at noble idiocy at first glance, her willingness to flee the country without turning back seems to indicate otherwise. I can’t figure out if she’s just a half-decent person who also happens to be a spy or a crappy person who tries to be decent only when it suits her—or maybe it’s a little bit of both. What matters most is that we have no way of telling based on what she’s giving us through silence, as opposed to Sun-woo, whose face is always an open book of varying emotions.

That’s why it was so fun to see him interacting with Yoon-jin post-reveal, because he was no longer being called upon to just stare at her lovingly and repeat mushy lines. The catch is that he didn’t just get a free pass to hate her either, which would’ve been too easy and much more radical a shift. Instead he landed somewhere in the middle, which lent instant complexity and nuance to the way he reacted to her in every scene that followed. Love.

But on the other hand: Oh, Mom. This is the kind of typical behavior you’d expect from any mother out to protect her son, but asking us to buy that she was ever a super spy is like asking us to try nailing jello to a tree. It’s not possible. I buy that she has nothing but the best of intentions, and I felt immensely sorry for her when she was suffering in silence while both of her children scorned her, but she is the worst spy. You just can’t hold a gun to someone’s head and wallow in indecision for half an hour and still expect to be taken seriously.

Just look at how Ki-chul, brutal as he may be, still gets things done even if he loves a long and languid chat now and then. Whatever problems I may have with him and his ever murky motivations, I can’t help but like him for putting Comrade Oh down. Granted, neither Ki-chul or Comrade Oh would make a blip on any good villain’s radar, but at least Ki-chul has some motivation we can understand, what with his residual feelings for Mom and his traumatizing past as a prisoner. Comrade Oh, by comparison, was a characterless dweeb with a permanent grin. I’ll take Ki-chul’s scar-scratching, angry-uncle-at-the-dinner-table act any day as long as we never have to see Mr. Laughsalot again.

Couldn't agree more on the never reconcile part
its not just a simple love-misunderstanding
her actions is just as she puts it caused lost of lives
and almost directly puts Seonu and his family in danger
when she did tried to work a way out of it, but she did show no reluctance in putting her family priority over Seonu's
who would want an in-law like that

^^ KiChul is sorta pure antagonist but can't help to feel proud of him on tackling the other comrade and the lackeys he brings

On mom's defense, if what she did back then is the same as what YooJin do now, its only stays by Seonu's side, its only undercover job, explains all the lack of spook skills

What made the bumps of the story is maybe on how the story goes propels by the actions by the characters with less care of how is one character is developed which results to un-synchronized actions of how the character is described, which when we overlook it would be a better viewing experience ♡

No, Mom was supposed to have been a top notch spy...and remember how she set that bomb off timed perfectly for her. Yoon-jin has been a downer drip from the beginning, definitely don't want her back with Sunwoo.

"I swear I’m not just saying this because I wasn’t Yoon-jin’s biggest fan, but I hope those two never reconcile."
It's just what I want to hear.
I'm also pissed with Sunwoo, after all Yoonjin told him and even said that Hyerim is in danger, the idiot (yes I think him stupid) walks slowly, without haste, with still time to look at the building of his 'beloved girlfriend'. OH DAMN CREATURE, YOUR MOTHER WILL DIE IF YOU DO NOT SAVE HER.
This is no time to whine. It is time to act, save your mother and then you think in this unhappy and annoying of your ex-gf.
Teasers came out today and it looks like dad is in danger, oh nooooooooo dad don't die, please.....nooooooo you're so freak cute, awesome...you can die.....Sunwoo you have the antidote for the poison your boss Song is injecting on your dad (I think it's the same poison that Kichul used in Sooyeon); save your father.
And Yoonjin, don't harm Youngseo, pls.

Woaa, Poor Sunwoo...lol

I mean, give him time, is not easy to hear that conffesion from someone you already trust so much. It's need time to recover and also trust someone who already decieved him and also spy, how come he just immedietly believe what she said, even it's about his mom, she was lying for so long.

I think he lost himself, coz it's must be break him so much. At least he's not turn to be soo much weak and too dramatic, just need time, before he's do action.
And again, after that he just ignore her,just need her help to save his mom, he's not sweet to her anymore, even quite mean, but still reasonable.

Also he already put track device in the hardisk before,that's why he follow the bad guy using the tracking device.

He is human too, who've been give too much at once, first his mom and now his gf, he also can be weak, make mistakes by love blinded, but at least he recover and fight again to save his mom, even fighting with his gf, just to save his mom.

I don't understand why some ppl can say he loves his gf more because he trust his gf more. actually because he just not trust his mom can strong enough to know more about him, that he need to lie, even it's wrong actually, coz for him his mom is to fragile, to degree he's not being himself, with his gf he can be himself,like he said.

I like SW is not a perfect man with genius six senses or something cool, like most of K-drama, he has flaws,introfert,and can be fool sometimes, lol, but that's make him more human.

I do not think I was harsh, Sunwoo was much harder and rude to his mom who only wanted to protect him, not because she find him weak, but because he is her son and she also wants to protect her family, than with his girlfriend who from the beginning caused problems to him; was the girlfriend the responsible for failure in all his missions that resulted in the death of his partner and Sooyeon and loss of his positions in the agency.
Only at the end of episode 12 he showed this side of family shield and for the teasers that came out today this will continue in the last episodes.

@finally But i like when SW told his mom and remind her this is not just all about him and she also have a daughter who will be more in danger then him a nis again with excellent fight skill.

And when the mom told him, she never in peace situation since she have him (bcs she have so many worries things with Sw), I think Sw feel so uneasy and then in anger he told his mom "she should never have him in the first place. This scene is so heartbreaking...

And from the preview next episode mom told sw to safe and protect his father and sister. Hope nothing bad happens to this family.

I love your comments here. 'Genius' doesn't means he never has flaws. What i like about this drama, the lead male character look more realistic compared to other dramas

What are you talking about? lol
are you an robot? because waiting that Seonu has no reactions about his gf confession is ridiculous and lacks credibility .

Even so Seonu barely whine about his gf confession.Even OP recognizes she was waiting a different reaction from him but Seonu is handling the situation well.
on other hand ,your dislike gf behavior but his mom is the one who doing the things pretty difficult for Seonu this time. Her actions are really stupid like op express in the review too. She was a top-spy ..who would believe that? she put herself in danger easily,complicate things for Seonu and Dad.
Basically Seonu,dad,suyeong are in big danger thanks for Mom silly actions. She was really careless this time.

If we analyze inthe aspect 'spy' no one here is. To me from the beginning Sunwoo often analyzes what else his mom says and does, always thinking that she is protecting him too much and it is wrong in two ways: to have an idea about something that does not know right what is and not set limits on his mother about his life. Then he takes all the rage he keep inside and throws all at oncea, something he is guilty too. Do you understand?
At home he protects all and never say anything and with his girlfriend, that he barely knows, says it all. What spy says all his missions to his girlfriend? mom and son are not spies and his girlfriend looks more like someone who will always seek out the way favors her, even if it means harming those who love her and she says she loves.

Hmm, I don't know what kind of analysis do you make, lol

Coz in my opinion, SW is a mother complex, even the reasons, why he love YJ coz she reminded him his mom, her background almost the same with his mom, they meet when he doing his job, so no wonder, she know his true job. But SW never details tell about his job anyway, even the important mission he was saying, not about SY.
Love can make someone blind, sometimes, lol.

His mom is too overprotective sometimes, it's no wonder though, for the hardship she got from her past, she just want the best for his sons, even it's to degree, burden him, dont want to hurt and make his mom worry. Both of them need more talk heart to heart, lol, coz the more they don't want to hurt they hurt actually, they need to honest and trust each others. They both each others too much.

Actually this drama is more about family than "cool" spy, and i think that part is delivered.

Yes, Hyerim protect her children too much (has her reasons, but Sunwoo do not understand it and see how his mom find him incapacitated; Youngseo as it is still young does not have so many problems with it as Sunwoo, but feel that HY lately only cares with her brother).
But I also know that some of that super protection is also guilty of Sunwoo since he has not had a frank conversation with his mother and set limits to it, that long before he dating Yoonjin. When Yoonjin came and broke all this pattern in Hyerim life of course she went on the defensive. was she right? not, was not, but it was expected that attitude from Hyerim.
Hyerim was used to having Sunwoo beside her and suddenly he was farther from her; Yoonjin was the only thing that has changed in his life and for her Yoonjin was the blame one. In parts it was, but she did not know the discomfort Sunwoo was having in her overprotection bcz he never telled anything about his mom stop to protect him.
There is the side of what Hyerim thinks and what Sunwoo think and neither says anything and is just holding the rage.
To say that Yoonjin was like Hyerim and then he fell in love with her and their story be a repeat of history of Sunwoo's parents is a little strange. Yoonjin and Hyerim both met theirs lovers on a mission, but the similarities end here. The results of her missions and actions are different.
Hyerim when had to make a serious decision made by putting the lives of her love and her son first.
Yoonjin could have used Kichul and Sunwoo in other ways and somehow ensure the well-being of her family; but she for me seems a little weak, fragile. For a high-ranking spy, much more than Sooyeon, she let herself be manipulated easily. Never was a step forward. Always waiting for orders.
Yes, they were with her family, but she did not seem to seek other ways of get out this situation without being from Kichul and the other bad guy orders.

At home he protects all and never say anything and with his girlfriend, that he barely knows, says it all. What spy says all his missions to his girlfriend?
----------------------------

1.Seonu is not a spy..he is an agent
2. Do you even watched the drama? or you are busy hating Seonu for being in love with his gf
Seonu met Yoonjin thanks for his work,so she knew his job since the beginning or Am i wrong?...did Seonu met her like a normal person in a normal situation?
im not sure if we are watching the same series.
Seonu not even needed to tell her because (Again) he met her thanks for his work,so he naturally never needed to hide it from her because he met her like an agent,so he always knews she knews that he is a man who make secret missions from the beginning.. This is the reason why Seonu felt free being with her and less repressed. this is the reason why he trusted her the most. BECAUSE HE NEVER NEEDED TO HIDE HIS SECRET LIFE AND PERSONALITY FROM HER.
a bit Careless? maybe but not unrealistic at all
by the way even so Seonu never told her all the details of his missions.

--------------------------------------------
his girlfriend looks more like someone who will always seek out the way favors her, even if it means harming those who love her and she says she loves.
---------------------------------

Weird reasoning. it is pretty ovbious that she has feelings for Seonu but any normal person would chose her parents life over boyfriend.
Yoonjin is not doing it because she is a NK spy who love killing innocent people.She is doing it for the lifes of her family.
Some innocent people would die for save her family..is this a bit selfish? probably but even so any normal human being would still chose to save the lifes of their families over lifes of other people. Well probably you would chose your boyfriend.
not choose the man you love does not mean you do not love that person. Life is not black and white only.

WOW!! love your thoughts! I totally agreed!

Agent or spy does not matter, he should never have told all missions to his girlfriend.
He feel 'insecure'at home that he did not take care of anything that he said and did in Yoonjin house; did not stop to think how little personal values had in her house and any strange thing noticed in her behavior he left out because there was his refuge and had to be 'perfect, in order'.
The question is not of Yoonjin telling Seonu whole truth and expect him to save her family as he saved Sooyeon's family, it's her not excited (think twice) to take actions that would harm Seonu and his family and not show remorse / regret in her practices; her concern was the fairytale finish (not sure if it's love, but just the feeling of thinking that your perfect life with the perfet man by your side; for a girl raised in NK to be spy it's not difficult thinking this way).

"Weird reasoning. it is pretty ovbious that she has feelings for Seonu but any normal person would chose her parents life over boyfriend."

And that is the key point of what I said earlier and you very well pointed. It is strange to anyone not want to protect your family, then between boyfriend and family, chooses family.
For me, a man who has just received the news that his mom will be killed, that he has to save her and his family, acted a little slower than I expected (I'm not talking despair, scream, cry, whine ; I'm talking to act and do something to save his mom, just as he thought Yoonjin was in danger).

And thanks for the concern, but yes I watch the drama; Are we from the same country or even from the same city? So next week we could watch together or at least comment on the news of the latest episodes of this drama; I'm not have here anyone to talk and is always good to have sites like DB that allow debate and discussions on the latest developments of the dramas.
We occasionally find comments with opinions we don't like; when that happens we should remember how every human being is different from the other and that would suck all think like us. It's good to be different and have different opinions, without it there would be no debate, no discussion.
Bye ^^

Now Please dont tell me Yoonjin should have told everything for Seonu. So he could save her family like he saved Suyeong´s family.
How if saving people from NK was so easy. Seonu saved Suyeong family only because team leader helped him. No because Seonu is stupid but Boss has bigger power and connections than Seonu.If Seonu had not received this help, he had no chances to get it( if you remember that epi). If you remember boss only helped him for shady motives. Someone really thinks if Yoonjin had told eveything to him.Seonu would ask his boss he need him to save the family of his North Korean girlfriend lol .Seonu would have been arrested and accused of being a NK spy too. Yoonjin is not so stupid,she knew that.
On other hand,never forget Gicheol always watched over YoonJin & her family the most. Suyeong was one of his ramdon spies . While YoonJin was the comrade who spying his main target.

I think this is the first time in K-drama, lovers quarel and even fight not because of cheating, misunderstanding, but just to protect each other family. This drama, eventhough has flaws but still on track for family part.

Can't wait for the next episode, more interesting.

What do you expect when just in a few days you find the truth everyone is lying to you. But i love SW reaction,it's not the time for acting pitiful- a broken -heart -guy and feel betrayed. Even Mr and Ms smith doesnt know both of them each other is a spy "love make you blind " lol. Anyway I love how the focus this episodes start to "everything is about my family" everything in SW hand now, he can't trust everyone but again I hope HT and EH trust and help SW.

By the way, what inside the hard disk?

If this is a regular drama it's must be interesting with different mission story and when SW sister become a high school spy too lol

Oh please! Mr and Mrs Spy was just a trashy summer hit. No one in their right mind takes that movie seriously. Brad and Angelina looked hot and that is all anyone cared about. Don't get how you are comparing a 16 episode show with a 2 hour movie and also SW is already taking action. Obviously he was going to react to the betrayal of everyone before him before springing to action. Don't see how hard that I'd to understand.

How is it that this girl gets cast in the most thankless roles in the k-drama universe? She has literally never had a well-written part, whether the drama is good (Miss Korea) or awful (Night Watchman and, from what I can tell from recaps, this one). She may or may not be able to act, but in these roles no one could.

"Love and truth don’t quite go hand in hand as everyone seems to get a gun and a little extra motivation this week, leading to a few confrontations that end with more than just empty threats and dark promises. Blood is shed, hearts are broken, and Sun-woo gains some clarity of focus he didn’t even know he was missing before everything in his life got turned upside down. Now that he’s no longer wandering in the dark and this is what we can expect from him, this show just got a whole lot more interesting."

Thanks for the funniest recap of the year so far...my coworkers enjoyed watching me lmbo while trying to eat my lunch and not choke. Honestly, both the NK and SK spies are so lame...although Ki Chul redeemed himself after the pillow execution of Comrade Oh. Nice badass move there.
I too was annoyed with Yoon Jin until she made the decision to change the plan after the "kidnapping" of Young Seo. She might be useful/redeemable. Would not mind seeing her team up with Mom, turning the tables on the "mother in law must hate the future daughter in law" trope.

Thank you very much for the recap, HeadsNo2! Episodes 11 & 12 are thoroughly enjoyable from the angst to the action. I appreciate how these episodes manage to frustrate you with the characters' decisions/feelings one moment and in the next they redeem themselves. Everyone has something to lose here (including Chief Song) and hence negotiations from all sides are possible. This is what makes the plot exciting! Out of all the episodes, these previous ones showed Jaejoong is capable of expressing much feelings through his eyes. His tears of pain and anger (during interaction with Mom and then with his GF) made me teary eyed, too!

SPY is effective in evoking much emotions since the beginning which, in my opinion, is the result of good directing, editing, and acting.

The future looks dim for all the characters. There will be consequences no matter what. So I can't wait to see how everybody gets out of the mess they put themselves in. That's including Ki-chul because even the baddies here have proven to have a heart that makes you hate them less.

Again, thanks for the summary for both great episodes!

<3 these two episodes and this recap!

"But on the other hand: Oh, Mom. This is the kind of typical behavior you’d expect from any mother out to protect her son, but asking us to buy that she was ever a super spy is like asking us to try nailing jello to a tree. It’s not possible."

THANK YOU. That's almost my exact comment a couple of episodes ago. In fact, I "credit" the loss of this series' appeal to general audience from ep.4 onward to too much screen time given to mom's completely unconvincing"spying" skills. Her pointing a gun at Ki-chul for what felt like a whole hour was just silly, and then she proceeded to get someone pointing a gun at her head one second after she pointed it at another, and when she shot the empty gun at Comrade Oh I literally facepalmed because how DUMB does one have to be to think that gun would be loaded??? I really hope the writer redeems Mom in the last four episodes by having her do something awesome and save the day!

On the other hand, angry but still level-headed Sun-woo taking over is just PURE AWESOMENESS!!! I continue to love his scenes with Hyun-tae the most- that fight sequence was really well done and Hyun-tae telling Sun-woo "I really like you on a human level but..." was just priceless xD Man I would so love to see a Spy spin-off that focuses on Sun-woo, Hyun-tae and Eun-ah fighting the baddies and each other xD

And Ki-chul pillow executing Oh was one of the BEST scenes in this show. Thanks for being BAD and actually SURPRISING, Ki-chul!

I echo your thoughts. Saved me from writing exact same comment. Drama would have been definitely more appealing had they not wasted episodes on Mom. Seonwoo scenes are awesome n Jaejoong's acting makes them even more interesting scenes. On the other side, Yoonjin acting is a let down. Their love story would have been more heartfelt n angsty if she would have acted with expressions other than blank face.

No matter what, the drama kept me engaged and I'm very excited for coming episodes.

Not to mention her totally fail 'action scene' at the end when she gets thrust against the wall but SW. Somehow it hurts but she has the energy to flick her fringe to the side. Little things like that just ruin the vibe of the scene for me. Honestly I did not feel a thing when she lied to SW about not ever loving him. Good Riddance.

look at everyone getting excited when Sunwoo’s whipping ass and handcuffing people .

he wasn't this sexy to you when he was pinching cheeks and hugging ?
he needs to get rough to get your attention ?

he's already sexy from the beginning :) like Kichul said at earlier eps: Kim Sun Woo is fast, strong and good at deceiving people..the writer just wanna show us the transformation of SW, while he's warm or badass, he's hot & sexy! :)

These episodes are really DAEBAK!!!!! The show didin't waste any second.. I super love scenes the badass couple fighting. Thank God Seonu wasn't wishy washy though he was heartbroken after Yoonjin's confession...

good job jaejoong i like your acting; i really cannot stand go sung hee's poor acting. this drama is under-rated but she ruins it most of the time when appear on screen, in korea she's known as one of the worst actress and i can see why. besides, so many actresses can act better than her -_-
she's not even pretty.

Last two episodes were the best one to date...if the scriptwriter had balance the action and drama,it will be so much better..i realised that before episode 10 they tend to focus on mom more than sunwoo..which appear to be dull..but now its so exciting to see sunwoo taking action.love all the action scene in these episodes..cant wait to see what happen next ...:)
