This particular first impressions post will cover the first four episodes of Spy Myung Wol. Sometimes I do only 1 episode, sometimes I do it after 4, and it’s really just based on how I saw the drama. The Princess’ Man wasn’t compelling enough for me to launch into Episode 2 right away, whereas for Spy Myung Wol, I actually saw episodes 3 and 4 before I saw 1 and 2.
I think watching it out of order did not help me appreciate this drama any more. However, now that I’ve seen all the episodes, things are making sense now.
Spy Myung Wol held their press conference today in anticipation of their premiere next week. The cast were asked a gamut of questions, most notably Han Ye Seul about her car accident, Eric Mun about Poseidon, and Lee Jin Wook about his breakup with Choi Ji Woo.
Well – we kinda knew it wasn’t going to be a melodrama when the premise is a North Korean spy falls in love with a Hallyu actor. But then again – you never know – it could have been an ATHENA mixed with Best Love but no Hong Sisters humor. That would make it an action/melodrama type.
But guess what! The plot is: Han Ye Seul is the spy tasked with stopping the spread of Hallyu fever in North Korea.
