I will honestly say this is one of my favorite dramas, although I think the ending was rather hastily put together, it was a refreshing story line from the rather normal story lines in other dramas. It has lots of action, comedy, suspense, and emotion to keep you at the edge of your seat. I felt like I was on a roller coaster the whole time! There were so many points of read more view that the writers let you see, so by the end of the drama you were aware of how every main character felt. The acting was outstanding! I am a big fan of Eric. Especially after watching this drama. I will say that the ending sucked majorly as far as unanswered questions, but I felt that the whole show up to that point made up for the lacking of explanation at the end. Besides it turned out how i wanted it to so i cant really complained. And I LOVE the entire soundtrack! I downloaded the whole OST. I would most definitely recommend this to anyone who loves emotional roller coasters with very happy moments and then moments where you will burst out in tears!!

I was really expecting a lot form this drama. Since this year, so far I watched a lot of action dramas involving spies and stuff but this drama had more romance and comedy in it which made it enjoyable at some parts. The drama started off pretty good. It was good enough for me to continue watching it, but after awhile it just dragged on and the story became too long. Don't read more even get me started with the ending. The ending was very shocking and very rushed. I was very surprised at the way in ended. It was a happy ending but it wasn't the perfect ending I was hoping for. Things weren't even explain and so I finished this drama with many questions unanswered. Overall the drama was okay. It was watchable!

They both have that cross of action and romantic comedy. I kept thinking that Rain should have been casted for this part, though I loved Eric Mun.

All the surrounding and circumstances are different, but the feelings between the main couples (the "type" of love) in these two dramas seem similar to me. They start out with almost enemy like relationship, the man treats the woman sometimes really badly... but the girl in both dramas is the type who can take it all and some more, very strong girls both of them. Both pairs also end up in a difficult situation later on where they need to decide how much they can give up for their love.

    How does this have such a high rating? It was pretty bad. I thought it was a spy parody. The fight scenes were hilariously bad along with the special effects. And what was with that random car explosion at he end? Yea because cars just explode when they crash. And they didn't even explain where Choi and Myung were for a year. So stupid.

    Would have dropped it if Eric wasn't in it.

    I found this drama boring in some scenes but I enjoyed the sweet romance between the couple (Eric Mun and Han ye seul).

    One of the worst KDrama I have ever watched. It's starts off great, then notsogreat, then really really really bad. You were warned. It makes no bloody sense whatsoever. So stupid. I can't believe I actually finished it.

    Great show overall, the acting was pretty good and I got attached to the 2 main actors. I'm sad they haven't done anything since this series ended. The bad points are the last few episodes felt a little stretched with some useless and repetitive scenes, I mean how many times do you need to try to escape/get captured/leave the country, I think the 2 episode extension from 16 to 18 episodes was not necessary. Also a big change of mood happened, from E1-12 the show is more of a Rom-Com then changes to more of a Melo-Rom for the next episodes, but in the end it came back a little to Rom-Com. But these bad points dont change the fact that this is one of my favorite series and im really hoping to see more from the 2 main actors.

    I love "Han Ye Seul" but hated "Han Myung Wol" for deceiving and playing with a mans heart. I felt like killing her so many times by somehow magically appearing in the drama. I've seen melodramas, tragedies but I have never been so irritated by a drama like this. I don't know if it's because this drama is that good or just junk. You just gonna have to decide yourselves. Duration of this drama has been like a love–hate relationship for me. I just couldn't let go of the fact how cute, adorable and sexy "Han Ye Seul" was throughout this drama.

    I love stories about spies and so I was dying to see this drama. I ended up liking it a lot and laughed a lot with Myung Wol trying to seduce Kang Woo.
    I confess that a little twisted that Choi Ryu ended up staying with Myung Wol ... (Though I think that actress obvious that rich girl would end up falling for it ..)
