The relationship between mother and son comes to a head this episode, though surprisingly it’s not just about Mom disliking Sun-woo’s girlfriend over a silly thing like financial status. In this world of spies and espionage, Mom actually finds some solid reasoning to reject her son’s true love—I’d give you a hint as to why,... More »

While being a spy comes with its own set of responsibilities and dangers, it’s a whole other thing when an entire operation rides on our young secret agent’s shoulders. In all of his experience in the field, Sun-woo learns that keeping secrets is nothing compared to the difficulties of keeping a promise. Thank goodness then... More »

Mom has to do the unthinkable in spying on her son, but soon finds that her foe is a more formidable opponent than she’d initially given him credit for. Her dilemma is still the same, only much more pronounced this hour—in... More »

Spy: Episode 2

Sleek and stylish, just how I like ‘em. That and how briskly-paced this show is, since Spy isn’t messing around when it comes to getting in and out without wearing out its welcome, which is pretty nifty considering its double-header format and its unusual time slot on Friday nights. The limited timeframe also cuts lingering... More »

Spy: Episode 1

If all spies were a vision to look at like Jaejoong is, I’d probably cave in and give up all my secrets within five minutes in the interrogation room. Thankfully Spy, the newest spy action drama on the KBS block offers more than a beautiful face to gaze upon. Not only is this show wonderfully... More »

Secret missions and warring loyalties in Spy
by | January 5, 2015 | 50 Comments
Badass Mama Spy! How awesome does Bae Jong-ok look in this poster for upcoming action drama Spy? The poster above features Bae taking a protective stance over her son (Jaejoong), and the tagline tells us rather defiantly, “That mission — I’ll do it,” as though telling the guy to back off. There’s a “…so eff... More »

First stylish teaser for KBS’s Spy
by | December 30, 2014 | 32 Comments
KBS has released its first teaser for its spy drama Spy (aptly, if obviously, named), and it looks pretty slick. It’s pretty short, but hits the essentials: Mom Bae Jong-ok is “an ordinary mother,” son Kim Jaejoong is “an ordinary son,” and the drama tells of “their non-ordinary mother-son relationship.” That’s an understatement, given that...

KBS secret agent thriller Spy rounds out cast
by | November 28, 2014 | 131 Comments
Jaejoong, Go Sung-hee You know, I really wish this drama had picked a different title — for a drama about spies, it’s a little lacking in covert slickness. KBS’s new Friday night drama Spy has secured its leading cast, and plans to enter production shortly. Idol actor Kim Jaejoong (Triangle) will be headlining as expected,... More »

Jaejoong eyes KBS Friday night drama Spy
by | November 24, 2014 | 49 Comments
There was a rumor that KBS was going to keep scheduling dramas in the primetime slot on Friday nights, which seems like an interesting gamble since its current teen drama High School Love On is struggling to build an audience on its erratic (and frequently preempted) once-a-week schedule. But mostly I blame tvN for turning... More »

2014 Korea Drama Awards
by | October 1, 2014 | 191 Comments
The Korea Drama Awards (part of the two-week Korea Drama Festival that kicked off today) isn’t one of the bigger award ceremonies around, but being that it’s drama-focused and inclusive of both broadcast and cable programs, it’s worth a look—even if the winners list does seem rather scattershot. The awards ceremony was held in the... More »
