The first teaser is out for the KBS Friday night drama Spy and it reminds me yet again not to believe I have a clue what a drama has in store by the concept and casting alone. The teaser has got a weird off-kilter old school superhero TV show vibe. It almost feels like the heroes and villains are marked extra clearly. The logo definitely screams comic book adaptation and I wonder if this mood will carry over into the actual drama. Male lead Jaejoong’s first character stills were released last week and now the rest of the cast is presented for a look-see.
Bae Jong Ok playing Jaejoong’s spy mommy looks phenomenal. She’s basically the female lead as far as I’m concerned. The blunt cut looks incredible on her not to mention her eyes scream “don’t mess with me”. The only thing I find funny are the stills of her in the sunglasses and hat trying to look inconspicuous yet calling out her shifty aura. Go Sung Hee is basically there to play the obligatory love interest and her stills remain as dull and lifeless as her acting in her last drama. Yoo Oh Sung never fails as the dangerous villain and his stills are even framed with eerie green lighting to emphasize his scary ways.
