Spy: Episode 16 (Final)

If Spy was ever about more than the pursuit of a flimsy piece of hardware holding the secret to immeasurable wealth, you might find yourself hard-pressed to remember that in a finale that revolves solely around the acquisition and eventual trade of The One Hard Drive. I wish I could say I’d miss that thing since we’ve spent what feels like sixteen dog years lending it an undue amount of conveniently arbitrary plot importance, but I’m happy to see it gone—even if it means saying goodbye to the rest of the show as well. We’ll miss parts of you, Spy. You know which parts you are.

FINAL EPISODE RECAP

It’s Ki-chul who picks up Sun-woo’s call at the veterinary clinic, and he doesn’t need to say anything for Sun-woo to confirm his location.

But when Ki-chul escorts Mom out, the scalpel on the floor is gone. Wait, does that mean she’s going to actually do something?

Ki-chul and Mom find their way blocked when his lackeys line up to face them, guns raised. They take the hard drive from him, but need him to tell them the password to get on their escape boat out of the country—something he doesn’t need to do, since he never even bought them passage.

That’s when the wounded lackey turns on his comrades and fires. Both he and Ki-chul manage to shoot and kill every last one of the traitors, with Ki-chul explaining that he’s loyal to him because of their time spent in a prison camp together.

So much for that, though—soon enough the wounded lackey has his gun pointed at Ki-chul. He demands to know what the password is, while one lackey (who’s barely clinging to life) shakily aims his gun and fires right into the wounded lackey’s back.

Ki-chul takes the opportunity to use him as a bullet shield before killing him, only to take a scalpel to the back from Mom, who proceeds to run away like the clueless girl in a slasher flick. Don’t spies know how to double tap?

Yoon-jin sees Mom flee the clinic while Sun-woo goes inside, and calls him to tell him her location while she follows Mom, but doesn’t reveal her presence. While she’s on the phone with him, she hears someone step out from behind her, the click of a poison pen.

She turns around just in time to get stabbed by Ki-chul, who reminds her of his warning that she’d experience the same death as Soo-yeon if she ever betrayed him.

Sun-woo hears the exchange over the phone, and rushes to get the antidote kit Eun-ah had given him within the tiny three minute time frame it needs in order to be effective. He makes it just in time to shoot it into Yoon-jin’s arm and save her life. In return, she tells him which way Mom went.

Ki-chul takes the opportunity to use him as a bullet shield before killing him, only to take a scalpel to the back from Mom, who proceeds to run away like a clueless girl in a slasher flick. Don’t spies know to double tap?

Mom is gasping for air as she runs blindly down darkened alleys, flashing back to her despondency after having Sun-woo. “How can a woman like me become a mother?” she’d asked her husband accusingly, since he hadn’t allowed her to get rid of the baby.

In the present, she can only shake her head as she breathes that this is all her fault. No doubt she blames Sun-woo’s predicament on herself, and the fact that he was even born. That’s probably the most unhelpful thing she could be thinking of right now.

While Sun-woo and Ki-chul look for Mom separately, Sun-woo calls Hyun-tae to alert him to the scene in the veterinary clinic. Mom flashes back to when she first held Sun-woo in her arms and promised him she’d protect him.

She’s broken from her reverie by her son’s adult voice calling out to her, bidding her to hold on just a little longer—they can arrest Ki-chul and go home soon. Mom would rather him not find her, but he sees her and starts to run toward her.

…Just as Ki-chul raises his gun to shoot Sun-woo the second he rounds the corner. Mom musters all her strength, and with a cry, leaps up in time to take the bullet intended for her son.

Ki-chul takes only a moment to recover from what he’s done before he shoots again, this time hitting Sun-woo in the arm. He takes the hard drive and looks condescendingly down at Mom as he asks, “Is your family that important? To the extent that you’d throw your life away?”

Mom gasps desperately for breath as she ekes out that Ki-chul can’t take the hard drive, because that’s the only thing that’ll save her family now.

He still tries to take it, but Sun-woo manages to bring himself to his feet, and the two exchange gunfire. Ki-chul gets away and Sun-woo doesn’t pursue, instead dropping to his knees next to Mom.

Mom’s fading in and out, but musters the strength to tell her son that she was happy to have had him, and that one of her greatest joys was being able to carry him in her arms and look after him as he grew up.

She tries to shoo him away toward the harbor where she knows Ki-chul will attempt his escape, but Sun-woo refuses to leave her and instead hauls her up on his back.

“I was wrong,” she murmurs almost incoherently, her head hanging over his shoulder. “I was wrong.” Yoon-jin steps out to meet them, managing to convince a reluctant Sun-woo to chase after Ki-chul—she’ll get Mom to a hospital.

While Sun-woo calls Eun-ah for help tracking Ki-chul’s boat down, Hyun-tae deals with the merciless Director Jung, who makes certain that Sun-woo will come through for them by taking Dad as a semi-hostage (again).

Before he goes, Dad makes sure to tell Young-seo that while she may hear many things about her parents from here on out, she should remember one thing: “Mom and Dad love you very much. We will work hard to become people you won’t be ashamed of.”

And more importantly, he adds, Young-seo must remember that whatever she hears about her parents, it has nothing to do with her. “You live the way you want to live with pride,” he says. They embrace tearfully.

As Yoon-jin accompanies Mom to the operating room, they both think, but don’t speak, that they would have liked to have met each other under different circumstances, and in a different time.

Ki-chul is suffering from a gunshot wound to the gut after his fight with Sun-woo, but still doggedly drives himself to the port where he’s to take his ship (was he driving all night or did we just get lazy with the night/day transitions?).

He grabs the hard drive and staggers to the edge of the abandoned dock, leaving a trail of blood behind him as he goes. When he can go no further, he drops to his knees.

Sun-woo gets Eun-ah to ensure that the boat Ki-chul is set to travel on knows he’s coming and will refuse him entry before he makes it to the dock himself. He finds Ki-chul’s crashed car before he finds the man himself…

…Only to find him face down on the ground. Sun-woo is shocked as he approaches Ki-chul’s prone form, just managing to catch a glimpse of the picture of Mom Ki-chul has in his limp hand. Whoa, wait… he’s dead? Just like that?

He calls Hyun-tae to tell him he’s procured the hard drive so that Hyun-tae can get Director Jung to stop the briefing, where he would’ve outed Sun-woo and his family for espionage. Now they’re safe.

But Mom’s not out of danger yet, as Sun-woo and Hyun-tae gather outside the operating room where doctors are fighting to save her life. Sun-woo knows Yoon-jin must have brought her here, even though Hyun-tae claims not to have seen her.

Hyun-tae delivers the hard drive to Director Jung, who hints that this isn’t all Hyun-tae will be required to do. Uh oh.

While Sun-woo and his family keep vigil outside the operating room until morning, Hyun-tae can’t help but think about Chief Song’s last desperate moments while eating the kimbap Song said he could do away with if only he’d joined hands with him.

And when the surgeons come out to tell the family how the surgery went, Sun-woo, Dad, and Young-seo link hands in solidarity and support.

One year later.

Eun-ah spills her dating woes into Sun-woo’s sympathetic ear soon before he leaves to tend to his utterly normal corporate job. He drinks with his sunbaes and takes some time to be alone, his eyes looking faraway and distant as he broods silently.

He and Young-seo are back to being their normal bickering selves at home, where Dad looks on dotingly. He even comments that Sun-woo is more nagging than a wife to her husband. But where’s Mom?

Sure enough, she’s safe and sound as Sun-woo finds her in her room. She’s packing their things for a move—hopefully with all of them together this time.

Sun-woo may have switched to a civilian job, but Hyun-tae and Eun-ah haven’t, since they have a quibbling fight over Hyun-tae wanting her to call him the more familiar “oppa” rather than just “sunbae,” despite having received a promotion. She doesn’t give in, but jokes around with him about their dinner date at Sun-woo’s house.

They arrive together bearing expensive health gifts for Mom and Dad, with Hyun-tae stopping Sun-woo specifically to give him something extra potent. Aw. I know it’s product placement, but the sentiment is sweet.

Turns out Mom was packing because they’re planning to move to the suburbs after Young-seo takes her college entrance exam, and after dinner, Hyun-tae asks Sun-woo if he isn’t bored with working an ordinary job.

“It’s good to be ordinary,” Sun-woo retorts with a smile, though Hyun-tae still doesn’t buy it—Sun-woo looks too comfortable and bored to be truly happy.

But he gifted Sun-woo with extra-special ginseng because he wanted him to read the note inside (okay, now this is just product placement), asking him if he wants to do one last job for the NIS by meeting with a double agent who has some questions regarding the hard drive incident from the year before.

He waits alone for the contact to meet him, until he hears a familiar voice yell his name…

…It’s Yoon-jin, looking pretty in pink. She smiles as she struts over to Sun-woo to tell him that she needs his help for something.

Sun-woo just smiles, and she smiles right back.

 
HEADSNO2’S COMMENTS

Not to sound too bloodthirsty, but that’s it? How anticlimactic. Of course we can give credit where credit is due and proudly proclaim that Spy didn’t lose its mind in the final episode like so many shows are wont to do, but there’s such a thing as being too safe, which is probably where I’d put this finale on the spectrum between Very Vanilla and Batshit Crazy.

To say that this finale spent its time tying a neat bow out of all the disparate plot threads would be dishonest, since a time skip and a languidly paced epilogue do not a satisfying wrap-up make. Stakes were all but missing, though the show desperately wanted us to think otherwise by shooting as many characters as possible in the hopes that we’d care about at least one of them. Even if we had, too many characters have been injured and survived for us to put much stock in one or two gunshot wounds.

Establishing life-or-death scenarios surprisingly takes more than just putting characters in deadly situations, especially in a show with so many fake-outs as Spy has had in the past. It’s a matter of world building as well as crying wolf one too many times, so much so that when Ki-chul just up and died from that gunshot wound, it came as more a surprise than anything. It was both a fitting death for him and thoroughly unfitting, and even now, I still can’t quite sort out how I feel about the way his end was handled.

Which shouldn’t be taken to mean that every character who’s mortally wounded needs to die—we’ve seen plenty of character deaths in this show’s run—just that it shouldn’t come off like a lottery that some characters won and some didn’t. I know that life can be like that, but when you create a fictional world you assume control of it, and that’s just one of the things that should come off as a more calculated move than anything. Who you keep and who you kill makes a statement, and the statement Spy gave us was that Soo-yeon didn’t need to die. (I’m still chafed about that.)

On the flip side, everyone else got to live, all the conflict surrounding the hard drive was conveniently wiped clean, and our core family got to return to their lives as if the events of the past fifteen and a half episodes never happened. If they’ve been irrevocably changed by those events, we’d certainly never know it, even though I’m still scratching my head about all the threats made to charge Sun-woo’s family for espionage—so much so that Mom inexplicably believed that (1) not only would her family become criminals because of her, but (2) that fleeing the country with her misbegotten stalker would somehow and magically fix everything, only to be (3) genuinely surprised when it didn’t.

The fact that Mom lost her ability to be understood is a crying shame really, since this show touted itself as being an engaging spy thriller with a fraught mother and son relationship at its core. Why? We’ll never know. It had everything it needed to be that mother and son drama, though it intentionally decided to be about everything and anything else, with just a sprinkling of what should’ve actually mattered. Examples of what didn’t include: Ki-chul’s obsession with Mom, Mom’s total inability to put two and two together, the North’s motivations, the South’s motivations, motivations in every sense of the word, Chief Song’s entire character, and that hard drive.

And after all that time spent on the supposed importance of the hard drive, it was traded for a deal we didn’t know had to even be made in the first place and that was that. It could not have had any less importance to Sun-woo, and was only made relevant to him when his family was threatened during everyone’s mission to acquire it. The only meaning it had was the importance arbitrarily assigned to it, which would’ve been fine and well if we’d ever really been given a reason to care—instead it was just a thing, and the use of that thing to string one scene into the next so that Sun-woo’s journey as a son and agent were more like afterthoughts in relation to it was not the story I think most of us signed up for.

The cast remained mostly solid till the end, with obvious standouts being Jaejoong, Jo Dal-hwan as Hyun-tae, and Ryu Hye-young as Eun-ah, who each showed a special dedication to their roles. Hyun-tae and Eun-ah’s roles especially could have come off much flatter, but Hyun-tae was humanized by his struggle to do right by his fallen partner and his inherent goodness as a person, while Eun-ah came off as surprisingly real and just plain human. I’m going to miss them.

Despite the structural failings that ultimately resulted from an unfocused script, this was still a fitting pre-military sendoff for Jaejoong, who’s proven himself a capable leading actor even in unfavorable circumstances. While I’d point to Triangle as his breakout role, what both shows had in common was that they required a relative acting newbie to carry them on his shoulders, which is what made both performances all the more memorable. Of course, that’ll only make the next two Jaejoong-less years all the more difficult to swallow, which I’m pretty sure is the whole point. No one ever said loving Oppa was easy.

 
GUMMIMOCHI’S COMMENTS

Uh… hi, Yoon-jin. Sorry to say, but I’m not happy to see you. Oh boy, I already feel much better now that’s off of my chest. Initially announced as an action-packed, family-centric drama, Spy certainly possessed the elements of an engaging bit of spy fiction: one family unit entangled up in a political conflict that would potentially shake the already tense relations between the two Koreas. That kind of premise would practically write itself into a gripping tale, because we as viewers would love to know why it has to be THIS family—why these people were so damn important.

Not knowing why our hero is so sought after ten episodes down the road is cause for worry, but if an entire series can wrap-up and make a viewer question what the point of the whole mission was (answer: a hard drive) and realize that the story could have chugged along at the same pace without its core group of characters (presumably, our family), then a show is in serious trouble. Although I wouldn’t be able to pinpoint exactly where Spy first made a wrong turn, I can say that this show is an example of what can happen to an reboot in the hands of a clumsy writer. For a spy-action show, there was plenty of non-action and non-spy work going on, and even the initially heart-tugging familial moments turned into jumbled story elements thrown in to occupy airtime.

It’s almost criminal to imagine then that Spy had a solid source material (the Israeli drama The Gordin Cell) at its disposal to use as an idea bank. I could understand the notion to use source material as a launching pad to branch off into a different narrative, but then again, what we got was nothing to sing accolades of. By the end, Sun-woo and his family members turned into pitiable characters caught between two greedy semi-evil entities in Ki-chul and NIS (and virtually everyone in the NIS apart from Eun-ah and Hyun-tae). Ki-chul’s motivation for that hard drive and badgering Mom & Co. were mutually exclusive — the first for riches, the second for personal vengeance. Together, these pieces failed to fit quite right, because there would be times where one motive took precedence over the other.

Given the great importance Spy had placed on that damned hard drive and all the action happening on my screen over it, I’d hoped that it would be destroyed or dealt with otherwise. And it was in that moment I’d realized that after everything, it ended up in Director Jung’s hands and the awful man has exactly what he wanted. Which practically makes the whole fight over it (and sadly then Chief Song’s death) virtually moot. In the epilogue, the show had me believe that perhaps either Mom and/or Yoon-jin had passed away, which I thought was why Sun-woo appeared more solemn. When I discovered that neither was the case, and that Yoon-jin’s reappearance was the same move I’d seen in every lazy flick of writing of an open-ended reunion, I felt cheated out of any threat that had been brought up at any point in the show.

If there ever was a shining redeeming quality to this show, it would be by far the men in this family. I could fill pages about Dad and his steadfast devotion to his wife and children, along with his willingness to protect his family. His helplessness in the time when he knew that there was nothing he could do broke my heart, but how could you not love a jolly, honorable family man? And wouldn’t you know that Sun-woo takes after his father in his own relationship with Yoon-jin (even if I was never sold on the romance). Coming across a hero who actually comes from a loving home with solid parent-child relationships is hard to come by, which makes me appreciate Sun-woo all the more. Jaejoong has come a long way, improving with each role he takes on. We’ll need to wait at least twenty-something months until he can be back on our screens, but rest assured that we’ll be here waiting.

When I first started watching this show , I thought it was slow and there wasn't enough action but I thought I'd keep watching because it was gonna get better but it never really did. I wished it had been a better drama. I was expecting something more from this drama that just never materialized. It's sad that this is Jaejoong's last drama for awhile, it's gonna be a long wait.

It's amazing how few dramas that Heads recapped turned out well. ?
So many dramas look good on paper, with wonderful leads, or at least lead, promising premises, but just crap out when it comes to the viewing experience. In the last couple years, watching ongoing shows has felt like playing a loaded dice game. Even if we have the will power to quit b4 it's too late, it's still disappointing and upsetting. The more we hope for going in, the more so.

JJ has more than proven himself in Triangle and in Spy. We'll miss him for 2 years, but I don't doubt that he'll come back as an even stronger actor.

I love reading drama recaps because i wanna know other's thoughts...but in the end recappers/reviewers ARE NOT God..they never act in a drama and most of them might not the scripwriters or ever write a commercial drama or have acting skills..moreover they're not Oscar winners..if they said A, it's not truly really A..or they said B, it's not truly really B..everything's back to the viewers.

Do you wanna know my opinion?
I LOVE THIS SHOW!

Do you wanna know why?
Because every warm dialogues, sweet moments and unique scenes attached me to REAL LIFE and warmed my bloods. I don't need any sophisticated high-end analysis for every parts in a drama to make me enjoy it.

Gummi: "Where can i find the men like in this family?" Oh yeahh..because you only found non-sense aliens, vampire, green-eyes crazy men out there :)

Even you will never find a romantic villain like Gichul out there :)

Thanks SPY's writer! You made me alive this season..I really adore 'the men' in your drama :)

Hi Judith and Samantha,

Glad to know that you both enjoy Spy. :)

To add my prev post, i did watch Spy until eps 12, then i stop because i don't like how the story goes. am waiting until its finale to watch the last 4eps altogether. But reading the recap, which i do share the same thought from the 1st eps, demote me.

I don't judge a drama before i watch them, it is not fair for the whole show. They're making something which i - the unsignificant kdrama viewer - appreciate, a lot.

As i said before, its a personal preference. Not everyone here share the same thought toward one drama.

I have the same point of view like you.
And I agree with the recap, see so many people surviving after several shots and poison (Sunwoo, Hyerim and Yoonjin) makes me believe that the death of Sooyeon had no reason to occur. To me from the premature death of this beautiful character, Spy was losing focus and got sloppy, very predictable.
Don't like the end at all.

I actually didn't get the endingt too. Soo Yeon was a great character and there was no reason to kill her off. They wasted a great plotline with just killing her off.

And don't misunderstand, I actually kinda like Sun Woo and Yoon Jin (even though I still don't really get if she loves him or not, if she was just greatful or had more feelings, because her personality sways from one thing to another), but the ending was just plain stupid in my eyes.
Yoon Jin goes missing and no one seems to care and suddenly she repears and than what?? Do they end up together? Do they not? What excatly ARE her feelings?

Sun Woo asked to Hyun Tae abt Yoon Jin when they were at the hospital but Hyun Tae said that he didn't see her but look at Sun Woo's face at that time, he seemed knew that Hyun Tae wanted to cover Yoon Jin (some men took YJ at the hospital, i guess that was the order from Hyun Tae to save YJ (make dissapear just a moment) from the NIS team target. Then one year later, HT made a dating arrangement for SW & YJ. From their meeting i can sense that WooJin renew their relationship as a couple. I love the writer made the reunion scene was not cheesy exaggerated like most other Kdramas. This is a drama about SPY so their reunion with that SPY style was truly cool!^^

Beautiful character? The entire time she has this deer-caught-in-the-headlights look on her face. Her story was the same like all the spies Kichul killed and YooJin. She was recruited to be a spy and her family is held as "emotional ransom" if she ever tries to leave. Seriously how is this special? lol people are just bitching cause they wanted the female lead to die instead. Beautiful character my ass...

drama is a drama...as realistic as real life its can't be real. It was written by human not God. So if the writer said they survived they will survive, if you wanna the 'beautiful character' survive then you make your own story. ^^V

I think the writer try to made this drama more logic, compered more realistic, something happened because some reason like why kichul killed all of the spy from NK because he wanna own the hard disk himself, why the beautiful character Sooyeon was killed, because of this incident they can make the antidote for all of NIS agents that will catch hwang kichul esp sunwoo. "People surviving after several shots and poison (Sunwoo, Hyerim and Yoonjin)" yes I think its not realistic, maybe if it happened to us, we can't survive, right? But this is dramaland? so, let we try to think it logically it maybe can happened, first they are NIS agent, spy and ex-spy so they have to stronger then ordinary people and the important point are 1. sunwoo got shot in around his shoulder so its not the crucial/deadly shoot, and he got treatment as soon as he got shoot. 2. Its also happened to mom hyerim, she got shoot in his arm and she also got treatment, and for the last shot he got surgery soon, and Sunwoo has called a help as soon as he found all of NK died and the importance is he also mention the location (I like the detail of this drama), so mom can be saved soon. 3. Yoonjin: the reason why she saved because the antidote that sunwoo injected to her. And the antidote created because "the premature death of this beautiful character", if "the premature death of this beautiful character" wasn't killed by the poison, NIS cann't made the antidote.
So i think SPY wasn't losing focus but it has been written very well and really detail but ofc not perfect at all. If I explain how detail and other logical thing in this drama I can become competitor of gummimochi's recap hhehehehe ^^V

Yeah, agree with you, that's "funny",
Before this the discussion is more interesting, and now some just come, detest the drama, the char, and just randoms things just to said the dislikes, it's ok if not like the drama, but more wise.
Spy not perfect, has flaws, but not like the bad or worst drama. To like this drama is just enjoy, accept what is present, analysis based on what presented to understand and tells the flaws, not by act like a drama writters, experience critics, drama/movie directors, don't make your own story as you want and don't compare with other drama, which also like spy things, this is different...

i really enjoyed Spy but there are 3 regrettable things:

1- The mom was weaker than i expected
2- They didn't kill yunjin or at least make her disappear
3- there was no OST sang by Kim Jaejoong :(

Anyway, I'll be waiting for Jaejoong comeback

mom was shot and she got fever because of that and u still hope her to save his son with her kickass type?? she was a 50 years old woman after all..how about if she is your own mom? and she was bleeding & hurt..do u still force her to save u? i think the writer already gave a logic thing

Hyerim gave her back to be shot to save Sun Woo..at least it's her mother way to protect his son..

hmmm,

I don't know if so many drama you watch too much fantasy or dramatic maybe,

She is a mother, who really want to forget her past,just ordinary person, she is 50 y/o, just a housewife, even HT and EH had said, eventhoug she was a spy but now just a housewife.

I think she already explain in the press con, not to expect Spy like extravaganca and grand action and such.

She sacrifice herself to save her son, and you just said like that about her. Yes it's only drama, but need considerate not only use logic but heart, sorry to say this, but sometimes the comments =_=

guys, this is someone else's opinion/perspective on the matter, most countries allow freedom of thought and if they're lucky enough, freedom of speech
Don't immediately assume that they're some 15 year old raving about a Korean drama with no knowledge whatsoever.
If people produced films about people's everyday lives, most people's lives would be banal and grey, honestly speaking... yes they might have a random rainbow moment where they notice something special, someone special but from most people's perspectives they would be doing something weird like why the fuq are they staring at the sky, why the fuq are they leering at the guy who's working at Starbucks?
Even films based on real life events are modified and adapted to garner as much potential viewership as possible.

Thanks for recapping all 16 episodes of Spy (2015) Gummimochi and HeadsNo2. What a treat to have the both of you share your final thoughts on Spy!

I have to say that I really enjoyed the back-to-back episodes on Friday nights. I’m always on the lookout for a good spy/espionage thriller that’s action packed with a tight plot and well-written script where one isn’t left with tons of questions and inconsistencies to sort through. Did Spy succeed in most of these areas? Not really. Still, it was a fun watch and certainly nowhere near being called one of the worst kdramas ever. Oh and I really liked most of the music & OSTs from Spy.

Talk about being spoiled, where is the clever like a fox/ parent Park Jung-Hwan (Punch 2015) when you need him? The first couple of initial episodes probably had most of us hoping to see scenes of an ultra badass Mom constantly outwitting her adversaries with brains, brawn, & spy talents that excite wonder and admiration. Reality check: all Mom really amounted/boiled down to was just a sacrificing reactionary figure.

Overall the men fared better than the lead females in terms of good characterization. For instance when confronted with threats compare their behaviors, actions, and responses. Notice how the men vs. the women were written to handle and react to a sense of fear and dread. Add to that Go Sung-Hee being the weakest link acting wise.

Anticlimactic - I agree. I would even add bittersweet to the mix. Bitter in the sense that Lee Yoon-Jin lived, but Jo Soo-Yeon died. Is the takeaway supposed to be that Yoon-Jin is a better Spy than Mom? Sweet in the sense that the Kim Family (Sun-Woo, Mom/Park Hye-Rim, Dad/Kim Woo-Suk, & Sister/Kim Young-Seo) in addition to Sun-Woo's NIS colleagues Hyun-tae & Eun-ah all lived.

Instead of going out in a blaze of glory in another gunfire battle versus Sun-Woo or NIS, Ki-Chul simply died from the after effects of the initial gunshot wound. What can I say, I was impressed by the fact that Ki-chul’s ending was so different from what most of us were probably expecting. Hey, it was certainly a surprise.

I have had great expectation when the preview came out. The production was great. The BGM,cinematography,Editing and the characters were all qualified compared with other dramas Jaejoong had took.But, here came the problems again, and again.The plots couldn't go smooth and reinforce the characters. I guess that's why the drama began with decent ratings but then went down.

Easy death, and easy spying in this spy drama.Mom was strong in the beginning and Sunwoo was bland,and after more than 10 episodes, the table turned.It please neither the aged viewers nor the younger ones.Only the family part was nice, sweet and heart-wrenching.

Still,SPY is not bad in my opinion.Quality didn't go down with the rating.And all the actors were doing a good job.

I grew fond of yunjin toward the end of episode, she redeem well by helping seonu save omma, I want more woojin scene, but
the weakest point is omma, because of her attitude spying seonu in early episod she neglect her other child n make like the drama there isnt any mother son/doughter bonding. if only she seek profesional help to sooth her panic depression not take the tranquilizer pill, she could think clearly and act wisely not become kichul"s dog once again.
and the villains just get easy death, and the mastermind behind team leader song just go away with the prize

I don't know what to feel about this drama.

It seems really good in the parts where it's really good. And really bleh in the parts that it's not.

Maybe the hard drive plotline would've fit better in a shorter timeframe. Like a movie?

I still enjoyed reading recaps and comments though. Thanks to all the beanies who talked about this show. :D

The good
Everyone survived the entire ordeal, a happy ending at least.

The bad
The ending is anti climatic. I would off have preferred a city hunter-esque drama and sun woo permanently dead. Since so much build up was on sun woo, it would turn this drama to an unforgettable drama. Him surviving a graze to the shoulder and seeing ki chul die on the ground is such a turn off. I wasted my time just to see the romantic villain die in a very lame way. A final shootout would with sun woo and ki chul shooting each other in the chest and both fall to the ground would suit this drama best.

The ugly
Nvm yoon jin and soo yeon, and Mom, they drama seem to use women as a ploy tactic and really, the push and pull with mom and yoon jin and premature soo yeon death is weak and disgusting. Noble idiocy would seem less appalling than this push and pull stupidity.

Haha very funny.
I'm neither of those persons you said, maybe you are.

Honestly, it was just that Spy was nice and all but it lacked moments that would make it unforgettable.

Something along the lines of a passing storm which you might call it.

You may call me ridiculous but it needed that craziness to make somewhat memorable.

10 episodes sun woo did nothing but planning and then a little jolt spurred him to do everything shows the writer's poor planning.

And about Mom being delirious about protecting sun woo and Yoon jin being indecisive about her stance towards sun woo, it just isn't my cup of tea.

And to address the unbelievably huge build up till episode 13 and 14, I thought there was going to be an epic gunfight only to see the North Win in an awfully anti climatic battle.

I felt flatlined and I have already forgotten most of what I have watched as opposed to misaeng,pinocchio, healer. This drama just really feels like a passing storm to me.

I love SPY! for its awesomeness, sweetness as well as its flaws. To me it certainly is a good drama that I have already repeated 3 times for its finale. I enjoyed every scene in it. Even though I'm not a Yoonjin fan and I don't buy their romance, but honestly I can bear with her character since the bathroom fight scene with Seonu.

SPY definitely is a warm drama that warms my heart. All the main casts especially Kim Family, Hyun Tae and Eun-ah make watching SPY more enjoying. I love how realistic and close SPY characters with the reality of lives. They are normal people after all, fighting and loving their families.

The ending clears my heavy heart of sending Jaejoong off end of this month. I can certainly take a relief breath that SPY leaves me satisfied. I will wait for Jaejoong's return and anticipate SPY 2 or at least the spin-off of the Seonu-HyunTae-Eun-Ah team working together kicking some baddies asses like Director Jung :D

I enjoyed every single part of you, like a human, you have many good things and some flawless parts too but I STILL LOVE YOU :) There is no one is perfect or no perfect dramas but i find you GREAT in your way ^^

I love espionage things..these 2 espionage dramas from KBS had stolen my heart, i didn't interested much with other dramas this season..and for SPY..family + action thriller is the unique point in my sight

As i always write here i love how SPY was a family drama which i found it more closed to REAL LIFE, is not exaggerated at all.
I love the dialogues, the relationship, the unique & memorable scenes between couples, friends, colleagues..i felt i didn't watch a drama but a REAL LIFE SHOW that entertaining me so much.

16 eps was too short but for the story itself i think it's an ideal thing.

I will miss all characters. Thanks to all the actors, writer, director & crews for their hard works to gave us the DIFFERENT TOUCH to Kdramaland which i never experienced before :)

Thanks, SPY! You're one of my fav drama this year!

Waah, great comment, you sum up what I think about Spy.

What interesting to me is the acting from most of the actors, I'm comfortable watching them, I'm really hesitate watch K-drama, K-drama I've watch all is Jaejoong's,maybe coz I'm his fan,lol, try another drama, but I can't continue,lol, I like action drama, but I can't with Healer,lol

Mostly K-drama is about cliche romantic w/ too much dramatics,too much fantasy, not real, the acting is too much and overact, I'm usually can't stand watching it despite how popular the drama.

Beside that maybe I believe in him for choosing drama, if not the story, it's the characters or the actors/actress in it, in Spy, I really like the acting from almost all the casts (not all, lol). It's really stuble, and great, no wonder Jaejoong keep improving coz he's work with great actors.

Thanks Spy team, really enjoy this drama, best K-drama ever for me, make me enjoying the drama and the acting of the casts really spot on.

Well done!!

I watched Spy in fits and starts, and I think perhaps aptly, that's how I perceived this drama.

I never got the feeling that anyone LIKED each other, let alone LOVED each other.

Just a bunch of people doing what they gotta do, when they gotta do it, cuz, y'know, they gotta do what they gotta do when they gotta do it.

and so it went. and then so it ended.

one year later....

yes, I still feel the same way. but i'm not moving, and I'm not wearing pink (today). i wore pink yesterday, but not today. spy had an opportunity to be so much freaking more than it was, and for that I feel an unforgiveable sin indictment, because the talent was there, the story was possibly there, and then it didn't happen.

come on. grow some courage. go bat shit crazy and do things that you know to be right even if people watching at home may not get it initially. push the envelope. be different. if you absolutely know the drama is going to end, and with that talented cast then what are you doing playing it safe. sigh.

I can't hate this drama too much because there are scenes in this 16eps drama that makes me go: "Awww~, NO WAY NO!!!, Dang-Jae-is-killin'-it!!?"
P.S: i can't really "aww~" at SunWoo-YoonJin scenes. I.JUST.CAN'T.
And Yep, too many holes left unfilled. I'm still left hanging over the "Please save... our SungHye" puzzle. How in the world did Jae know his Mom's old name earlier on? Or is there someone else with the same name that we are not aware of?
This drama has so much potential, Really. SooYeon's death was, in my opinion, one of the things that contribute to this drama going aimlessly without any clear mission. (Hey, even Korean viewers wanted more of her). I need to get to know more about this budding actress, Chae Soo Bin!
[A bit sidetrack here: YoungSeo's bedroom wall caught my eyes - I'm positive that one of her idol posters were TVXQ HoMin. #AlwaysKeepTheFaith TeeHee!]

Spy - Blow Hot, Blow Cold drama which I don't really foresee another sequel. Nonetheless, i will totally miss JaeJoongie (his kicks, defenses and everything in between of his 50shades) and Dad. Military won't really be a tough one for him. He's got skillz!

I finally had time to watch the last two episodes of Spy this morning on Viki. I suppose it's an indication of my lukewarm liking for the show that I could hold off watching it for a week, putting watching Kill Me Heal Me final two episodes and Kim Junsu Ballad & Musical Concert II DVD ahead of it.

On the other hand, I really enjoyed these last two episodes. There was lots of action, and I wasn't really sure if it was going to turn out all right.

Perhaps it is the cynic in me, but I thought the ending with the hard drive was chillingly appropriate. How many people died for that money? And at the end, the higher up says "It's all for the good of the country." Yeah, right. It's just greed.

I liked Ki Chul's death. He kept going and going, but in the end he died at the end of the land, hard drive with all that money in his bag, but no boat waiting for him to take him away, and no woman he loved/wanted obsessively with him, just her fading photograph. I had expected Seon Woo to find him kneeling, looking out to sea, and having to kill him as Ki Chul lunged at him, but considering it, him being already dead seems more appropriate. All of that effort to what end?

I am OK with the Seon Woo/Yoon Jin romance. They say that men marry their mothers and there were several similarities between Yoon Jin and Sung Hye, the most prominent being their emotional coolness. I do believe Yoon Jin loved Seon Woo, and that, more than her feeling of indebtedness to him, caused her to help him. Once she knew her mother was safe, she was even willing to take his mom to the hospital and stayed there, which she had to know was almost certainly going to result in her capture. I'm assuming the NIS gave her the choice of being a double agent for them in return for eventual citizenship in the South, however that works.

In support of Jaejoong, I have pre-ordered the director's cut of Spy and will be interested to see the effect of added and expanded scenes on the storyline. Like others, I'm hoping that Jaejoong will have a fabulously written drama series waiting for him to star in when he is released from military service in 20 months.

So Sun woo got a go-through bullet wound as we can see the entry and exit blood stains on his white shirt in the hospital .. But what about the second time he was shot by Ki Chui u the alley with Mum? How come there was no additional blood stain on his shirt other than the original ones?

That I was wonder too...but after I watched again, than I realized that actually sunwoo didn't get shot by ki chul. He can avoid successfully from ki chul's shoot. When he touched his shoulder and felt so hurt, it wan't because of ki chul's shooting but because he pulled his body away....

There nothing more that i can expect from the story and the ending of this drama. For me everything is acceptable and on the perfect place. The cast the storyline the ending.. I found my self screaming ..its like watching healer all over again..
Rather than the classic story of a man and woman become a lover, it starts with a love story between sun woo and yoon jin.
A naive boy who thought he could lied about his job to his parent but getting lied instead by his mother and lover.
All the scenes are awesome in my opinion, i mean right after he screames his lungs out hating his mother and regreting his birth, he grew a part with her and when he realize he was wrong its already too late that his mother already suffered a lot. And the only comfort he has was from his lover which turn out to be his enemy as well.
And even the scene of him stragled yoon jin is daebak for me.. like FOR REAAAL..
And the action scene that happened on the bathroom between sun woo and yoon jin as well.. Its like declaring that nothing happened between them anymore and now its all just business matters.
Love to hate to enemy to friendship to love again.
The bound between sun woo and his mother is so beautiful that on their hazy mind it replaying about sun woo childhood with his overprotective mom that happened because she has a lot of trauma from the past life. Its the same as katniss everdeen from hunger games, she refuse to have kids because she is truamatize by the world.
There is nothing wrong with the ending as well. You will die by the loss of blood. Thats a certain thing. The sad part is that he is planning on leaving with his loved one by spending the money together but now it is just a dream that never comes true.
It makes me wondering whter the mom died or not at the end, but its a relief that she is fine, though part of me wish for her non existence to make a better impact of the story. But happy ending is a happy ending.
And how the recappers mention about the hard disk just a hard disk is wrong for me. It worth millions, people died became greed because of that unbelievable sum of money, and its a solid reason to become background of the story.
Nonetheless i have no regret watching the drama. It was awesome in my opinion especially the story line.
The only flaw for me maybe this. There are some awkward moment of acting especially when gun is included. Other than that.. Its a daebak drama...
Peace.
