One day an order comes down from North Korea, reactivating erstwhile spy Park Hye Rim ((Bae Jung Ok) who has spent decades in South Korea as an ordinary housewife. She is given the mission to turn and bring in her own son, Kim Sun Woo ((Kim Jae Joong). Cool-headed, quick-witted genius Sun Woo is an information analyst on North Korea working for the NIS (National Intelligence Service).

    SPY has all 4 key elements of a well made drama: Fresh subject, meticulous directing, superb acting, diverse characters. SPY receives ultimate praise from viewers (God drama):harmony of perfect story, direction, acting & characters

    as an outsider, it’s one of those dramas that i enjoy but s.koreans apparently don’t (see ratings).

    Wow so surprise…why the rating is drop every week!!!! I really enjoy this drama and its a great drama. OH I don’t believe, why the rating is so low….
    SPY have rich storyline, sensual directing, exquisite acting. And makes me think over every dialog n scene (I really enjoy it), heartwarming drama n shocking twists mesmerize….

    tigerb #54:

    should rephrase, I prefer 2 days a week instead of once a week 🙂

    personal preference?

  10. 60
    jinci Says:

    although the protagonist and antagonist are great actors,
    rating is still low because…

    1. the story is slow-paced
    2. the suspense factor is lacking
    3. the love story is not so romantic

    1. we need to see KJJ cry in a family drama scene.
    2. we need to see more action scenes from Yoo Oh Sung (like cars chasing cars, an encounter the two opposing groups)

    let’s see in the coming episodes…

    @mayin: i read you! asking my personal preference? one episode a day for five days!!! i like this series, and honestly, i don’t like waiting to learn what’s next! i watch 4 other nice dramas concurrently, and i have to come back to this web site and see which episode i’m supposed to watch for the drama, because i watch the episodes at ‘you tube’. happy viewing!

  12. 62
    tigerb Says:

    @ jinci: i read at wikipedia about ‘the gordin cell’ and the genre is psychological thriller, which is i think not an s.k. audience favorite. of course, the producer/writer can inject some action, still the plot is not the ‘usual’ in most s.k dramas. watch ‘healer’, which is also very interesting but has lower ratings than its competition. to me it just shows that s.k, audience has different taste than outsiders. cheers!

    tigerb Says:

    eps 9 & 10: sun woo learns of his mom’s past life and what to do with very difficult choices.

  14. 64
    CoolBeans Says:

    @Mayin#59: They release 2 episodes a week on the same day each week. They drop two episodes every Friday. That’s twice a week, but, on the same day unlike most Kdramas that separate the episodes by 24hrs. I’m not sure what you are requesting of this show. Look at the dates of the show releases in the ratings chart above.

  15. 65
    CoolBeans Says:

    I agree with @Jinci #60 that the story is slow paced and lacks suspense. Suspense died when the mother was outed as a veteran NK spy and when they killed the defector. The son is too slow on picking up on the activities of his girl friend, his parents, and his supervisor. It should be obvious when your supervisor invites everyone to your house! I think Seoul citizens like spy dramas. They loved IRIS when it came out and remained #1 for 20 weeks.

  16. 66
    tigerb Says:

    @CoolBeans#65: you’re right, IRIS (1) did very good in ratings, but IRIS2 did not fare the same. i think IRIS had very popular leading actors, and well received by the s.k. audience. i’d like to watch the original israeli production and american production based on the original. they are probably more thrilling than this one, although i like watching this than other s.k. dramas.

    haura ariesta Says:

    I don’t know, why the drama when airing friday always have low ratings.. (such us high school love on). Spy have different story from drama with theme “spy” too. But, i think… they are not detailed like city hunter. And, they are not have romantic scene… honestly, i don’t like the actress who to be jaejoong couple in there. She act so worse

    rrr Says:

    poor drama for jae joong because of his leading actress…

    Most of the story is ending mess, pure chattering, worthless

    Phamz Says:

    Some says this drama is worst but for me this drama is nice..And,actually I don’t really like kim jae joong…But I still decided to try ep 1..When I heared jae joong talking to his mom on phone i started to like his voice first, but sunddenly i found myself liking this drama..I don’t know why but for me every ep is enteresting..Now im already at ep 10 in just 2 night.And now i really like Kim jae joong already and now I knew that his also handsome…Jae joong always keep up the good work..Figthting..And, Sorry to say but Park yoochun is #1 in my list as my favorite actor..

    beanie Says:

    the story is boring, not exciting and the female lead is the old mum. utterly lack life. the romantic story is not romantic at all. the gf can’t act and pretends to look pretty. the mum tried to create excitement but boy is she too old to be a lead. come on.

  27. 77
    Rose Says:

    On Entertainment Weekly, Kim Kae Joon was mentioned that when he finishes filming “SPY” he will be going to the army. Hope all goes well for him. It will be – 2 years? until we see him in a film again. So enjoy him in this show.

  28. 78
    tigerb Says:

    the plot and storyline were good but somehow the suspense and thrill were weak, and so was the romance that betrayal felt like somebody did not pay a loan. maybe 10 episodes would have better impact.

  29. 79
    OK OK OK Says:

    i agree the suspense and thrill are weak & the lead actor’s mum who was a spy but somehow i find her not smart to be a spy ….. that I gave up after watching ep 4, 5 ……..

    Why can’t have more storyline and attention to lead actor???

  30. 80
    OK OK OK Says:

    i mean i want to watch more of Kim Jae Joong and not his mum. ha ha !!!

    ruby placheta Says:
