New teaser for The Spy Who Loved Me with Yoo Inna, Eric, and Im Joo-hwan
A new poster and video teaser has been released for MBC’s upcoming rom-com The Spy Who Loved Me, featuring lead actors Yoo Inna (Reach of Sincerity), Eric (Unique! Chef Moon), and Im Joo-hwan (The Game: Towards Zero). The story is about a woman who suddenly finds herself in a turmoil. Her best friend mysteriously disappears and she finds herself in the middle of a spy war when she discovers that her ex-husband as well as her current husband are somehow involved and are both hiding secret identities.
The central character is played by Yoo Inna. A wedding dress designer named Kang Ah-reum, she simply wanted to live the dream of having a perfect wedding, a perfect husband and a family, and living happily ever after. She married Eric after a whirlwind romance, but then got divorced just a year and a half later. Fortunately she found love and marriage again with Im Joo-hwan. But one day, her best friend goes missing and Eric makes a surprising appearance at said best friend’s bachelorette party. Yoo Inna is then confronted with the truth and dilemma of who her former husband and her current husband really are.
Eric takes on the role of Jeon Ji-hoon. Posing as a travel writer by day, he works as a secret agent for Interpol and is described as responsible, intuitive, and highly skilled. When he met Yoo Inna, he was determined to protect both his career as well as his relationship. However, it became increasingly difficult due to the dangerous nature of his job and having to keep secrets from his wife. Their marriage became strained, and soon came to an end when Eric concluded to himself that he couldn’t always protect Yoo completely.
Im Joo-hwan plays Derek Hyun, who also lives a double life: working undercover as a government diplomat while secretly running a spy agency. He enjoys collecting and trading classic cars, considers himself highbrow, and is also courteous with a sweet and gentle nature. Meeting Yoo Inna was a turning point in his life. He fell in love with her at first sight and it brought out his romantic side. Although he continues his shady business in secret, he remains completely devoted to her and his love is genuine.
The newly released teaser starts with Yoo Inna’s narration: “Deceiving the other party as well as letting yourself be deceived; trusting them as well as pretending to trust. Marriage is a strategic war.” In a sequence of shots, we see someone making a wedding dress: measuring and cutting fabric, sewing, and adding details.
As the lace is swirled around, the camera mimics a spy glass as it closes in on the hand’s ring finger and transitions out of the scene. Cut to our three main leads, this time through the view of a target lens. Eric and Im Joo-hwan pose with guns while Yoo Inna holds a sharp pair of scissors – all dressed in wedding attire. The teaser ends with Yoo’s continuing voice-over: “Now, tell me the truth. The Spy Who Loved Me. Premiering October.”
Written by screenwriter Lee Ji-min (The Man Standing Next, Illang: The Wolf Brigade) and directed by PD Lee Jae-jin (The Banker, Woman With a Suitcase), MBC’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama The Spy Who Loved Me is currently set to premiere in October.
