Han Ye-seul in action as Myung-wol the Spy
Well, we’ve seen Han Ye-seul
being comical and co-star Eric
all sparkled up as a Hallyu singer-actor, which takes care of the “com” part of Myung-wol the Spy’
s action-rom-com designation.
In these new stills, we see the action side, with Myung-wol being an
elite agent from the North who infiltrates the South on a mission. Her
orders: Capture Kang-woo (Eric) and take him back with her to North
Korea. If only love didn’t complicate everything, ’cause she falls for
him and that, needless to say, puts a wrinkle in her plans.
Another complication? A second spy, played by Birdie Buddy
and Royal Family’
s Lee Da-hee
(pictured at bottom, not to be confused with Miss Ripley’
Lee Da-hae). She’s on the other side as a dogged South Korean agent who
investigates Kang-woo persistently. Now I’m curious as to what Mr. Big
Shot has been doing to attract such attention — and how the two ladies
are going to try to claim him to their sides. Disguises? Flattery? A
spy-off? Myung-wol the Spy
premieres on July 11.
