KBS is making an effort to promote the next Friday night K-drama rather than let float aimlessly in the wind like Hi! School: Love On. HSLO has been airing one episode a week since July, which is almost as long as those 50 episode weekend dramas except nothing ever happens in HSLO and the drama got preempted a few times due to sporting events so I’m so over it by now and can’t wait to have some new blood in that time slot.
With HSLO toddling off, up next is a change of pace and mood with Spy starring Jaejoong as the titular genius South Korean spy, who probably got his spy genes from his own mom played by Bae Jong Ok, who unbeknownst to him is a deep undercover North Korean spy. Go Sung Hee is Jaejoong’s love interest playing a tour guide and Yoo Oh Sung is the deadly rival North Korean spy who is sent to make sure Mommy does her job and brings in her sonny boy.
