Two exes break up reconcile several years later. Both end up being spies working for different units, so they have to keep their covers up in real life. Joo Won Plays the hero Gil Ro who decided in his youth that he wanted to be a spy after watching a Bond movie. His father became rich practically overnight, so he grows up in wealth and comfort, with a generous spirit toward others and a chic, refined appearance. Gil Ro gets accepted as a secret agent, but he’s not your usual veteran agent; he thinks and acts like the new generation he belongs to, and he makes mistakes and causes conflict.

    when i first started this drama ofter reading the descreption i was exited and honestly the first episodes lifted to my expectation , but then the series just became boring and rediculous due to the lack of chemestry between the two main leads and the fact that they made fool of the NIS agents that they made them look as if they were a bunch of children playing hide and seek , an other thing that i didn't like is that the main lead played by joo won was hopeless and really stupid , i know that it was supposed to be a comedy so there must be some misunderstandings and hilarious situation but sometimes it just feels pethatic instead of funny , however I won't read more

    It was off with a good start, and I remember I thought it would be one of the good dramas, but somewhere in the middle it dragged along, I disliked the fact that a whole country was having a hard time catching two 'criminals', who, we still don't know how they got all the power! And how everyone is after a chip/hard-disk that contains all the country's secret missions! Like I haven't seen that before..
    However, I couldn't ignore all the butterflies it gave me when I thought the chemistry would not work between the two main leads given the decade of age difference between them! I really thought Choi Kang Hee was too old for Joo Won! But it somehow made me ignore the age

    I'm really surprised at how much I'm enjoying this-both sets of parents are super annoying and the female lead looks older than the male lead (although they are supposed to be around the same age) but they have chemistry and the story is interesting.

    Honestly, i love the story and the cast, especially watching and holding onto it till the end just for Joo Won but i found that the main girl lead is kinda old for him and don't like her that much.

      this is actually what I was telling myself while watching the drama... I didn't feel like she was matching Joo Won, something didn't feel right

    I'm at episode 12 and I can't keep watching it. They drag out unnecessary misunderstandings and it's starting to annoy me to the point that I just want to skip half episode... Too bad since I loved the beginning so much ... On hold by now

    I really like the first half of this drama but as the drama progress i became bored maybe because the lead actors lacks chemistry, i mean their romance is not convencing but still i finished it because of Joo Woo.

    NIS's work is a joke. They are supposed to be special agents but their behaviour is that of amateurs... Will continue watch it because of Joo Won though

      It's a comedy. This is how most spy comedies work.

      So you're saying you need to be unprofessional to be funny and to pull some laughs from the audience? That's a new one

      You don't have to, but you're welcome to do it. It's not new at all, look at big American movies such as Johnny English. He's a spy and he's... Much worse than anyone on 7GCS.

    • mafalda Sep 13, 2013
      Right... But he's meant to be like that, in here they are actually mentioning NIS and everyone on it is a joke, even their superiors! But yes, you may be right. I'm still finding a reason that will make me watch all this besides Joo Won... Did you like 7GCS?

      I did like it, it's one of my favorite dramas... You just gotta remember that it's not meant to be serious.

      Right... Hopefully it will get better from the 10th episode. Thank you!

    This drama is only worth because of JOO WON . This drama is the proof that JOO WON is a Great Actor ,as you can see him developing a love story with the lead actress Choi Kang Hee , which I think doesn't match with him at all.

    Finished now see this drama, very good! I love anything (series, movie ...) that genre. The couple Gil Seo Won Ro and begin the greatest war, but then their relationship is super cute! Another couple who loved and lived by twisting them together was the end Do Ha and Sun Mi. *. *

    One word.. disappointed... I was sooo excited bc this drama had two of my favorite actors in it... But unfortunately it fell victim to a very poorly written plot and a total lack of understanding of what "special agents" are supposed to be like.. :'(
