Eric has a different feeling that make you wanna watch him. His acting is not amazing but he is good. Han Ye Seul is pretty and she is good at acting. But I think she needs work on her facial expressions more. She use only one for shocked, frustared, sad and angry!

Drama keeps repeating itself all over. it seems like happy ending but a problem come up; they solve the problem, read more again seems like happy ending *DININININ* -evil background music- another similar problem come up! Only one villian cause so many problems. They can create different problems or they can choose someone else to cause problems for lead actor & actress.

Thay can make this show 14-16 episodes and just finish it smoothly. Ending was good but it could be better!

So many stellar. Yes they need advirsement. Eric use his own drama for his own group = fair enough. But using them so much ANNOYING! I'm trying to watch a drama here!

While watching this show I started off not really expecting to like it. The first few episodes were really slow to me, and I found them a little boring. Then somewhere towards the middle it started to pick up and I found myself enjoying watching it for a little while. But then the last few episodes ruined it for me. I think they were unnecessary and the way it ended didn't answer read more anything [if you read the comments for it on DramaBeans it's exactly how I feel about it]. The way I feel is they could've ended it at episode 16, the ending they gave left me more confused than anything.



The story itself is a little on the ridiculous side, but I wanted to watch it to see how they would make something like it turn out. A spy coming down from the north and forcing a Kpop star to marry her and to drag him back north. It sounded interesting though. I did find myself liking both of the male leads, also, as I was watching the drama.



The acting was really good for the most part. Especially from Eric - his acting was definitely the best and he kept good even at the end. After Han Ye Seul's incident that she pulled it makes me wonder what exactly her reason was for leaving the set like that, and then coming back. Was it to draw attention to the show? Her acting was pretty good, although after that incident I had half a notion to drop the show. The rest of the cast was well acted, as well.



The music is one thing that was really good about the drama. It was well-done and the songs were emotional. They also went well with the story. Some of the instrumentals had this Mission Impossible sound going on, too, but it gave it that "spy" sounding theme.



Overall - I wouldn't say this is a horrible drama. I've seen better, but I've also seen worse. I'd say it's something to watch if you don't have much else to watch. If only to watch it for Eric Moon and the music at least. There are parts that are funny and sweet, but it just wasn't a drama that I really got into [that's just my opinion though]. The only episode that really had me wanting the next episode was episode 1O. Most of the episodes were just okay for me. I know there are people who have enjoyed this drama, so you might be someone who does enjoy it.

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.

    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 ..)
