Mixed messages with the spy next door in MBC’s Terius Behind Me
I love some good spy hijinks. When the first teaser for MBC’s upcoming drama Terius Behind Me dropped, I had been a little disappointed at the lack of comedy, but this newest teaser has made up for that, and now I’m so looking forward to So Ji-sub (Oh My Venus) and Jung In-sun (Woohoo Waikiki) getting up to all sorts of spy trouble.
So Ji-sub plays the titular Terius, which is his code name, a legendary black ops agent who has withdrawn from the intelligence community for reasons I’m sure we’ll find out in the show, though I suspect it has something to do with a mission gone wrong abroad. In the teaser, Terius broods in his apartment as we get a handful of scenes intercut of him in Warsaw, Poland, including him holding an unconscious woman and a bullet casing.
He’s interrupted by a series of knocks through his wall, which he translates to code for, “Agent Terius, answer!” Cautiously, he then sends his own message, asking who it is… And it turns out to be Jung In-sun’s children, who are being the kids they are and banging on the wall mindlessly. Jung In-sun scolds her children for making so much noise, but they point out that their neighbor is banging right back, just as Terius asks again for an answer, lol.
I have no idea how Jung In-sun gets herself caught up in some spy war, as reports say she does, but I’m looking forward to her dealing with her reclusive spy neighbor, especially if her kids get involved in the hijinks. A legendary spy with two rowdy kids on his hands? Comedic gold, I tell you.
MBC’s Terius Behind Me will premiere on September 26 and take over the Wednesday-Thursday slot from currently airing Time.
