Synopsis: A secret agent, who hides his true identity from his wife, works on a case that affects entire country of South Korea. Chul-Soo is the secret agent who hides his occupation from others, including his flight attendant wife Young-Hee. One day, Chul-Soo tells his wife that he will go to Busan, South Korea for business, but actually travels to Bangkok, Thailand to carry out a national operation.

While in Bangkok, Chul-Soo spots his wife Young-Hee, who is supposed to be in South Korea, with a good looking man named Ryan. Chul-Soo hands his hands full with his mission, but also following his wife …

Musings: Surprisingly, this was a decent movie. A lot of action sequences as the story premise was on a spy network that was trying to take over the South Korean economy as well as capture the daughter of a North Korean industrialist that had been killed. There was a lot of scenes as the movie takes place in both Thailand and South Korea.

Daniel Henney as the spy, Ryan was fabulous as well as handsome. For once, his Korean when spoken didn’t sound so tortured! He’s been practicing.

I don’t think I’ve ever seen a “bad” Seol Kyeong-gu movie. This was no exception. The acting was great and as I said, so was the action. Moon So-ri as the wife, Young-Hee was decent. I can’t say that I’ve had much movie experience with her, so far. As always, a great supporting cast. Even though this is deemed a action/comedy, I’d say it is heavier on the action but does have its “funny” moments. Overall, a good movie for the weekend watch. I recommend it.

Trailer is available on on Hancinema Website only. The movie is available on several sites. Ask me if your interested.
