Spy: Episode 13

It’s Operation: Rescue on Spy, where Sun-woo faces his most difficult mission yet: ensuring the safety of his loved ones. He’ll discover that while getting his family out of danger is relatively easy, keeping them safe is an entirely different matter. With things like the threat of national security in the open and corrupt superiors making some questionable decisions and committing even more terrible actions, Sun-woo can at least take some solace in the fact that he isn’t the only one having to face some hard truths around these parts.

EPISODE 13 RECAP

After sending Dad out to guard the door, Sun-woo keeps the gun trained on Ki-chul. His eyes follow Ki-chul’s line of sight to a van outside when he asks where Mom is, who is taken out to show him that she’s still alive. However, Ki-chul warns Sun-woo that while killing him will enable Sun-woo to procure the hard drive, it’ll also result in Mom’s death.

Sun-woo demands that Mom be let go lest Ki-chul wishes to die, but our villain is well-aware that death would only be too easy. Ki-chul is tipped off about the NIS agents’ arrival, which has him wonder if Sun-woo called for backup.

That wasn’t necessarily the smartest idea, Ki-chul notes. “Which one of us do you think those guys will apprehend? Us?” he asks, then shakes his head. “It’s you.”

Sun-woo gets visibly upset when Ki-chul orders Mom to be taken away, but quickly assesses that it’s better to hand Ki-chul and the hard drive over to the NIS, since Mom will be eventually discarded by the baddies anyway.

Although holding two North Korean spies hostage is a more favorable position for Sun-woo, Ki-chul asks him if he can abandon his mother. But now they’re out of time, so Ki-chul says he’ll return Mom in one piece when Sun-woo and his father break that code—they have one day to do it.

The office is empty by the time the NIS agents arrive, and Sun-woo assures his worried father that leaving Mom in the hands of their captors is the best choice they have right now. As the trio takes off, Dad asks, “But, why did you bring Yoon-jin along?” We’re all asking the same thing.

Once Chief Song receives word that Sun-woo and Dad got away, he orders his men to search their home. He’s still shaken by the memory of when he was interrogating the Supervisor, who didn’t know the password.

Chief Song had injected him with a syringe to presumably coerce the truth out of him, but whatever it was, it had accidentally killed him instead. Director Jung had cleaned up the mess.

Director Jung doesn’t seem all that torn up that the hard drive is in the open, since Chief Song will be the one to face the repercussions. He gives Chief Song two days to recover the drive, reminding him that Chief Song’s father-in-law needs those funds to finance his upcoming election.

And just to prove that he can drop Chief Song like a hot potato at any given moment, Director Jung tells him to take care of the Supervisor. He denies having any involvement in the matter, adding that Chief Song is walking on thin ice.

Sun-woo drops Dad off at a remote location, then speeds back towards town to pick up little sis Young-seo. He knows that Chief Song will stop at nothing if it means recovering that hard drive; he’s totally right, because next thing we know, Chief Song orders to find Young-seo.

Discovering the Supervisor’s corpse leaves Hyun-tae in a mix of shock and grief. He still remembers the day he lost his partner on that failed mission: a bomb-rigged door had blown his partner into smithereens, and Hyun-tae was barely conscious enough to see the three-fingered Supervisor step on his hand.

Chief Song had been the one to discover him back then, and it’s painful how Hyun-tae tries to find words to justify Chief Song’s decisions when Eun-ah calls in saying that they’re searching Sun-woo’s house without a warrant.

In the bathroom, Eun-ah spots the same pill Sun-woo had asked him to look into. Curious, she checks behind the cabinet, where she discovers Mom’s written confession.

There are already field agents in the surrounding area by the time Sun-woo arrives back in Seoul. He’s determined not to lose his sister, and more than willing to take the risk of capture when Yoon-jin says there are too many of them for him to take on.

He releases Yoon-jin from the handcuffs and from any further responsibility in this matter, telling her to protect her own family. But Yoon-jin insists on helping him in this task, if only to clear some of her guilty conscience.

As it turns out, Young-seo is playing hooky at a noraebang, and is told to turn off her phone until Sun-woo comes to pick her up. The NIS agents pick up on the suddenly lost signal as well and move out.

After Sun-woo heads inside, Yoon-jin picks up a call from Ki-chul, who tells her to help Sun-woo crack the code, then deliver the hard drive into his hands. She asks if this mission is state-ordered or a personal one, to which Ki-chul answers that that doesn’t matter—what Yoon-jin should concern herself with is her family’s safety.

When Yoon-jin says she can’t trust him, Ki-chul reminds her that he’s the only one who can save her family. They live in a world where money talks and loyalty can be bought, he adds. If Yoon-jin delivers that hard drive to him, he can guarantee safe travels for her family and a life where they would want for nothing.

He tells her to think it over, because choosing the wrong side could endanger her family.

Sun-woo pulls his sister out of the noraebang just as the NIS agents arrive. Pinning one agent against the wall, he instructs Young-seo to run and find Yoon-jin outside.Sun-woo on the other hand, stays behind to deal with the agent, taking him down with a flying kick and punch.

Young-seo is suspicious when an agent left behind invites her to get into the van, but that’s when Yoon-jin intervenes and punches him before leading Young-seo away. Meanwhile inside, Hyun-tae rescues Sun-woo from another agent (yay!), and quickly informs him that the Supervisor’s dead. He instructs Sun-woo not to get caught because they’ve got a lot to talk about.

Ki-chul rejoins his disgruntled team at their hideout that evening, who think they won’t get their share now that the hard drive is in Sun-woo’s hands. The female lackey thinks it’s possible Sun-woo could want the money for himself, a thought Ki-chul scoffs at. There’s no doubt in his mind that Sun-woo will follow through because they have what he most wants: Mom.

But the lackeys still question Ki-chul for having an ulterior motive (aka feelings for Mom) in making this hard drive retrieval mission so complicated. Enraged, Ki-chul pulls out his gun and shoots near Mom’s feet, arguing that this is a necessary step to access that hard drive.

Ki-chul pushes a minion against the wall when his authority gets questioned again. They’ll wait if they want their money, Ki-chul says angrily. With that, he sends them out so that he and Mom can talk.

Mom isn’t surprised that the way Ki-chul keeps his subordinates in line hasn’t changed at all. She tells him not to wait up for Sun-woo either, though he replies that it seems she’s the one waiting for her son.

Ki-chul tries covering a shivering Mom with a blanket, only to be literally shrugged off. He isn’t surprised, noting that she always hated anything that he gave her. Mom says it’s because she knew that Ki-chul obtained everything through dirty methods.

“Still, I did those awful things for your sake,” Ki-chul says. “And in those times, you regarded me no better than a bug. Like now.” Mom won’t have any of it, saying that Ki-chul was never selfless. To that, Ki-chul sighs, because they were lovers at one point in time.

“Do you… make a woman you love sleep with another man?” Mom returns. She was a mere tool then, which has Ki-chul roar that he needed to climb the ranks if he wanted to protect her. But those words are too little too late now, as Mom says that protecting your loved ones only when you’re able to doesn’t qualify as love.

Ki-chul counters that she must not love her family then, because if she wants to protect them, then she should leave. As long as Mom is around, no one in her family can ever lead normal lives again. “Sung-hye, we’re people who need to disappear from this place. It’s not a bad idea to find a new life.”

Yoon-jin extends a peace offering in the form of hot cocoa to Sun-woo, who looks like he’s practically been up all night. He declines, then asks why she’s staying by his side. Today,
Yoon-jin comes out with the truth that she’s here on Ki-chul’s orders.

He knows there’s no reason to think that she’d stay behind for him anymore, then notes that seeing her tell the truth now feels more like a lie than when she was deceiving him. A few tense moments of silence pass before Yoon-jin tells him to believe whatever he wants to believe because she’s trying to protect her family, and they have to work together whether he likes it or not.

Before getting out of the car, Yoon-jin says she sincerely hopes that neither Sun-woo or his family get hurt.

At least there’s good news: Dad was able to hack into the hard drive, revealing the secret funds mentioned earlier in Episode 9. Sun-woo says they can’t hand this hard drive over to Ki-chul just yet because the NIS are after it, too. Dad argues that they can’t give up on Mom, but that’s not what Sun-woo means—it’s imperative that they ensure their entire family’s future.

Sun-woo has a plan that involves meeting Chief Song at a safe location. When Yoon-jin asks him if he’ll be okay on his own, Sun-woo has her promise that if things go south here, she’ll take the hard drive to Ki-chul and rescue Mom.

As for Chief Song, he pulls into the office to hear that another team will be taking of the Supervisor case per Director Jung’s orders. Well, that’s not good. He then interrupts a chat between Eun-ah and Hyun-tae and sends them home, unaware that their excuse of talking about Sun-woo is only half-true, since it was more about keeping Mom being a former North Korean spy a secret from Chief Song.

The NIS has managed to capture one of Ki-chul’s minions, whose interrogation from here on out goes unrecorded. Chief Song goes straight for the truth serum injection, warning him that some people have died from the syringe in the past.

Hyun-tae happens to witness the act from the doorway, and when Chief Song instructs his men to go ahead and give him another dose, Hyun-tae closes the door and sighs that this isn’t right.

Chief Song mutters half to himself that they need to catch the other spies before they skip town. Recalling that he gifted Young-seo with one of their phones, Chief Song says that phone can be tracked even when it’s turned off.

When Ki-chul’s calls to Sun-woo go unanswered, he notes that Sun-woo must not wish to keep up his end of the bargain. He smirks when Mom asks if what he said last night was true—that if she leaves with him, he’ll take full responsibility and let her family live in peace. Oh Mom, you can’t still be that naive.

But Mom agrees, if it means ensuring her family’s safety. Ki-chul can barely contain his happiness.

Yoon-jin grows worried when her call to her mysterious contact goes unanswered. A minute later, there’s a sudden knock at the door, and Yoon-jin instructs Young-seo to stand back before someone on the other side tries to force their way in.

Chief Song drops by at home to learn that someone from work is here to see him. And what do you know—it’s Sun-woo, reading a book to his daughter.

 
COMMENTS

Well, there’s no safer place to confront an enemy than in his home. Especially one like Chief Song, who is so fixated on that procuring that hard drive that he’ll search his subordinate’s house without a warrant, deploy a team of agents to kidnap family members, and inject spies with potentially lethal truth serum.

Truth be told, I wasn’t sure what Chief Song’s intentions were in acquiring the hard drive, since it seemed like Director Jung had a greater interest in by funding corrupt politicians like Chief Song’s father-in-law with the slush fund. And then we learned in this episode that it was Director Jung who covered up the Supervisor’s death for him. It certainly explains why Chief Song would continue to serve his superior despite the director’s threats that he’s easily expendable, and yet what concerns me is the dark shadow slowly consuming Chief Song.

While he may not have always been the upright NIS secret agent, we’re also seeing how far Chief Song is willing to go if it means achieving his goal. Something tells me that what we’ve seen in this episode only skims the surface of that potential, because it also troubles Hyun-tae as well. And if in these final three episodes Spy chooses to plunge deep and make Chief Song into a complicated baddie, then I’m all for it. Even if so far, none of our villains have been super threatening or evil. And the two we were supposed-to-maybe be afraid of are dead (see: Comrade Oh and the Supervisor).

Speaking of deceased villains, it was heartbreaking to watch Hyun-tae grieve because the man he’d spent years hunting down is dead. I have to say that 30-second flashback struck a deeper chord with me than than most of this show has—not only because Hyun-tae’s character arc has been one of the more interesting points in this show, but also because you could feel the shock, anger, and sadness of discovering that he’d been chasing a ghost. Not only that, I’d been waiting for Hyun-tae to doubt his friend and superior’s decisions and actions, and there’s nothing better than a corpse to prove it. It still broke me when Hyun-tae tried formulating the words in Chief Song’s defense, as if he still wanted to believe the words coming out of his mouth. It’s okay, Hyun-tae—you can form a new bromance with Sun-woo.

I’m at least glad that Sun-woo is a variable neither Ki-chul nor Chief Song can really predict when it comes to this mission. Even if he is like Mom in that he’ll keep a gun pointed at someone but doesn’t ever really shoot at them, Sun-woo has been getting smarter when it comes to what decision will protect his family. If loyalty can be bought in this world, who can I buy off to make sure that he and his family will be together again at the end of this mission?

I think Jaejoong's acting in spy is better, coz with this char, even some of his fans detest SW char, called him stupid, idiot, do they forget who they're talked about, lol
But I think that's because he's really as SW, no trace of Jaejoong there.
SW looks sometimes ackward not coz of his acting but the char is like that, imo.
He is intropert, cold headed, strictly principle,quite type, he only open to his family and his gf,really intropert. While YD in triangle is hot headed but SW is cold headed, really different char, and Jaejoong really deliver it smootly, natural and more stuble, I'm really amaze and proud of him as an actor.
But anyway, thank you for like and acknowledge his acting, sometimes he is underrated, glad to know non fans also like his acting....

I said it because I think that she like his acting in Spy. She can enjoy Triangle. I like most in Triangle. I think the character was more complex. He did an excellet job as the main lead of that drama. I like his acting in Spy. But I'm fallin in love with him in Triangle. Are just tastes.
It's irrelevant but I'm a JYJ lover. And JJ is my favorite.

Again. Sorry for my english.

haha sorry..i think u misread my words..i said: "if i didn’t watch Triangle i didn’t know that his acting was that good and maybe i won’t watch this one"

I have watched Triangle, dear..that's why i knew his acting was good there and that's why it attracted me to watch him in SPY..and i also love his acting here :) i think he plays Sun Woo well..Sun Woo is totally different from Young Dal..Young Dal was an extrovert thug while Sun Woo was rather an calm conservative spy, though he looks more calm but he has deep thoughts before he took his actions..so i think we can't compare his acting based on his different characters from both dramas

thanks for your explanation for me..that's exactly what i want to say XD i watched Triangle 1st, so i knew that Jaejoong acted well there, then i watched SPY. I love Young Dal. I also love Sun Woo. Both totallty have different characters..like u said, Sun Woo's character maybe looks less superior than Young Dal because YD's personality looks more extrovert but imo it didn't mean that Jaejoong acted in Triangle better..i think he plays both well based on their personalities..

i agree that mom did many reckless actions put his own family in danger but in some points i can feel the psychological of her character.. her depressions & guilty feeling toward her family she brought for years, that made her capacity as an smart spy/agent was questionable. Every one can change if they enter the new era of their life and having a family. A woman, a wife, a mom sometimes will act carelessly & emotionally when it relates to her family or the ones she loves. This was same happen to Gichul when it comes he faced Hyerim, his love toward her for years made his capacity as an agent also questioned & mocked by Comrade Oh.

Mom consumed some medicines for years because of her depression about her long past. Sun Woo knew the long effect of those medicines from Eun-nah explanation. Human's brain & metabolism will change if they consumed some medicines for a long time, in fact those medicines won't cure people but those can destroy some brain cells' function. It can affect the way of people think, the way they react toward something, their responsiveness etc. And i think Sun Woo knew quite well how his mom's condition, that's why he shared his plan to his dad, didn't say anything to his mom

“But, why did you bring Yoon-jin along?” We’re all asking the same thing.

I have resigned myself to the fact that writer Han Sang-Woon is adament about finding a way to keep the Kim Sun-Woo & Lee Yoon-Jin ship afloat. For the viewers holding out hope for their romance never to resurface again...it's probably a lost cause.

Sun Woo's words to Yoon Jin were totally heartbreaking :( He knew that Yoon Jin still loved him but the situation being complicated, he is realistic enough, he knew he couldn't pull Yoon Jin to stay by his side anymore. I just want a happy ending for both of them

"I’m at least glad that Sun-woo is a variable neither Ki-chul nor Chief Song can really predict when it comes to this mission. Even if he is like Mom in that he’ll keep a gun pointed at someone but doesn’t ever really shoot at them, Sun-woo has been getting smarter when it comes to what decision will protect his family. If loyalty can be bought in this world, who can I buy off to make sure that he and his family will be together again at the end of this mission?"

Gummi, i have same mind with u. I think Sun Woo is smarter than his mom, more over he is more capable as a spy/agent. He has a calm side from his dad and a stubborn side from his mom, but what i like from him is his resistance in facing the problems (he is realistic, mature enough when he heard Yoon Jin's confession), we can't predict his moves & decision..at the time when he should act his capacity as a son to save his mom quickly (his dad is in panic told him to give the hard drive to Gichul immediately), he calmly said he has another plan to save mom.

Smart person is not a robot. He still has to analize & evaluate based on his intuition, logic relating his feelings before he runs his actions. Sun Woo is smart. He is not a panic person like his mom (a woman & a mom sometimes will act carelessly & emotionally when it relates to her family or the ones she loves). He knows what he has to do despite in a hurry time (the way he saved Yong Seo). I like how the writer & director always captured Sun Woo's face when he was thinking in per seconds before he took his actions..that showed he was more humane and the drama was more realistic

Yes, i think SW is the real WooSuk's son..thx God there is no birth secret..

In fact Kichul's crazy love for Hyerim already tortured her but in the bad thing there was also good thing..she finally found her true love in SW's dad

Thanks Gummi! I've been waiting for this for weeks :)

What i love from this eps: "What Friends are For". I love how Hyun Tae's quick reaction when he decided to move into SW's side & bring Eun-nah to help SW. They really such a nice team work. Hyun Tae joined the bad guy Chief Song is not dramatic/exaggerated rambling like some cliche stories in other dramas. He is smart enough to know whose person he has to trust..

Thanks for the recap Gummi! This episode offered some nice plot twists and like you said, Hyun-tae's painful flashback made more of an impact than most of the show did. It made me appreciate this actor even more <3

I like how Sun-woo is still acting reasonably level-headed being stuck between a rock and a hard place. He knows that other than the hard disk he doesn't have any bargaining power, so he tries his darnest to milk the most out of it. He is also very realistic and is prepared for the worst, telling Yoon-jin to hand the hard disk to Ki-chul in exchange for Mom's release if he doesn't come back alive. I literally clapped when the "safest place to meet Chief Song" turned out to be the man's home! Now that was indeed clever.

I love Jaejoong's acting in Spy- while his character here is more stoic, and always tries to suppress his emotions as opposed to the emotional outbursts we saw from his character in Triangle; I felt it's actually harder to play Sun-woo well and Jaejoong certainly has done a good job here "disappearing" into the role.

Another thing that I liked a lot in this episode is Hyun-tae and Eun-ah instinctively knew that Sun-woo was not the enemy. Hyun-tae saving Sun-woo and Eun-ah immediately concealed Mom's secret stuffs when she found them were the two best things that happened in an episode full of troubles for our hero.

And hey, I like how now Yoon-jin is like a new person, a familiar stranger to Sun-woo as he tries to figure out her true feelings for him. Though romance isn't high up on Sun-woo's priority list now- he's too busy trying to make sure his loved ones will come out of this whole mess alive!

I agree with what u said here...

Hyun Tae is lovely. His character isn't for nothing. In the end he is one of some important keys for Sun Woo.

Sun Woo is smart. In fact that he found " the safest place to meet Chief Song" in the mans' home was the brilliant thing. Who can capture his enemy in front of his lovely wife & cute daughter? :)

hey i agree with u..SW-YJ's relationship is more interesting now, not because i hate them being together as a couple, but from the obstacles they had faced, their heart bonding was more transparant, deep down from the bottom of their heart they knew they still love each others though they couldn't tell explicitly

so agree with you, more than say that sunwoo is stupit, idiot, very slow etc, I think he is very thoughtful, he do every think calmly and not bursh in rush.... he is so wise and strong heart, with limit time and hard situation he still can make a good decision.....
Hyun tae and eun ah, they wil be a good team with sunwoo hhhahaha ah and yoon jin I think hhehe

hmmm kinda want to protest to the writer about the existence of the "verita-serum" injection. is that an actual thing or fiction? but at least if we assume it as an actual thing (thanks to the development of science that probably have succeeded in creating the formula), it still isn't perfect to the point of having a death risk.
it's just me but i personally think there would never be such formula to force people to tell the truth/lie. lie detector is possible though because it was more of examining body's condition. well, maybe i'll just shrug it off.
as always, thanks for the recaps and insight, Gummimochi!

I'm not really love to read drama recap cause I don't like read. I more enjoy watch and recently I watch this drama, and when I watched SPY with my friend she showed me the screencap from this site. And when I read the comments from previous recap from ep 11 & 12 I really enjoy it. This is first time I enjoy read drama recap but I don't know the comments are more interesting hhhahhahaha. This comments are so positive and the previous comments are so funny really2 funny, make me laugh so hard. Thank you for the recaps hhehehe
Actually I'm JJ's fans as a singer because of his voice and musical talent but how a lot of people love him and praise his acting skill I feel so happy... Now I'll become KJJ as an actor to hhehehhe.
For me he is really2 have different charm when he stand on stage as a singer and when he on screen as a actor. I've watched Triangle and Spy, I did't see Jaejoong when he played youngdal and sunwoo otherwise I didn't see youngdal and sunwoo in Jaejoong. Jaejoong hot and sexy as a singer but he is make diff 'hotness and sexiness' as an actor.
