Professional Review of "The Spy: Undercover Operation (DVD) (Korea Version)"
Korean espionage action comedy The Spy: Undercover Operation had a pretty interesting trip to the screen, having originally been set to be directed by Lee Myung Se, known for arty outings like Duelist and Nowhere to Hide for blockbuster producer Yoon Je Kyun, the man behind hits Haeundae, Sector 7 and others. However, Lee and Yoon clashed over the film's (then going by Mr K) direction, the former apparently taking things off at a more esoteric tangent, and the director left the project while in the middle of shooting in Thailand. The reins were handed to first time helmer Yi Seung Jun, who had worked for Yoon several times as assistant director and who got things back on a more commercially friendly track.
In the lead the film stars actor Sol Kyung Gu (Cold Eyes) as Chul Soo, an average businessman who's actually one of the country's top spies, a fact he keeps hidden from his long suffering flight attendant wife Young Hee (Moon So Ri, An Ethics Lesson). After a sinister plot threatens to engulf the Korean peninsula in war, Chul Soo is sent to Thailand to try and track down a missing North Korean nuclear scientist (actress Han Ye Ri, South Bound), only to find Young Hee also in Bangkok and being wooed by a suave stranger called Ryan (Daniel Henney, Korean/American actor model, One Night Surprise), who just happens to be an enemy agent. Poor Chul Soo tries to save the country from disaster, while keeping Young Hee out of Ryan's clutches, which, needless to say soon proves even more complicated than expected.
The whole married spy deceiving his wife plot of The Spy: Undercover Operation has obviously been done many, many times before around the world, and admittedly there's very little here that's new or fresh. However, as a piece of commercial cinema, it's well done and plays to its strengths, offering the kind of genre mishmash so popular in Korea, combining comedy, drama, action and domestic intrigue. Yi Seung Jun does a competent job as director and balances things to generally entertaining effect, making the most of the sillier aspects of the premise and working in some funny set pieces, most of which revolve around misunderstandings and Chul Soo's increasingly manic attempts to keep his identity secret. At the same time, Yi never neglects the action, and wisely throws in plenty of set pieces, some of which are surprisingly violent, and this gives the film at least somewhat of an edge and keeps the audience distracted from its more overly familiar beats. The exotic Thai locations also help, with some nice cinematography and solid, glossy production values providing lots of eye candy.
Ultimately, it's the cast that makes a difference here, Sol Kyung Gu and Moon So Ri giving the audience a likeable lead couple, their real world problems (predominantly the desire to have a baby) keeping them believable and grounded. Though the way things work out is fully predictable, it's a lot of fun watching them bicker and sneak around each other, with Sol and Moon enjoying a genuine chemistry(the two worked together previously on Lee Chang Dong's superb Oasis back in 2002), and even if they are playing roles that aren't exactly challenging, both are on good form and kick the material up a notch - for all the national threat and nuclear danger, their relationship is very much at the centre of the film, and this does give the film a touch of heart. Daniel Henney also does well in a rare villainous role, coming across as impressively evil at times, and while the script makes a bit of misstep in a late stab at making him sympathetic, he's a good foil for the heroes.
Though nothing special, The Spy: Undercover Operation is a decent Korean popcorn flick, and one which does everything it sets out too. While it'd have been more interesting to see how it could have turned out in the hands of Lee Myung Se, it's a couple of hours of perfectly acceptable entertainment, boosted by its trio of big name stars.

The Spy - Droll And Fierce
'The Spy' is a good mix of sappy humour and cold blooded gun shooting fierceness with a decent reworked spy action movie plot. About a kidnapped North Korean female nuclear scientist defector Baek (Ye-ri Han) who is sought after by many 'agencies', especially Ryan (Daniel Henney) and his henchmen for Baek's rare knowledge of nuclear rockets, the S Korean spy agency need spy man Chul Soo (Kyung-Gu Sol) to re-attain Baek pronto, or hell could break loose. The plot isn't dissimilar to the war inducing bomb plot of Bond movie 'Octopussy' (or part Ian Fleming atomic rocket novel 'Moonraker'). But poor old Chul Soo shows here how being married and also having a job being a spy can be difficult bed mates. Chul Soo demand by his flight attendant wife Young-Hee (Si-ri Moon) nagging Chul Soo to spend more time at home and making a baby. Young-hee though doesn't have a clue her husband is a spy, believing him a mere office worker. And even more un-James Bond like is that Chul Soo is low on sperm count and finding it difficult to keep his end up.
But Chul Soo, when sent on his spy mission to Bangkok Thailand to locate Baek, suddenly has worrying concerns when spotting his wife and her new dandy boyfriend - the dangerous Ryan. Young-Hee is literally swept off her feet by the playboy at the Bangkok airport foyer and after a 'why not' decision in having a little quirky affair (Chul Soo being away all the time) decides on a dinner date with Ryan. Chul Soo getting highly concerned about the affair begins to tail his wife amidst his dangerous mission. But Young-hee involved with cold blooded killer Ryan puts her in grave danger.
Although part comedy the serious action is fierce and violent throughout. But the action/humour bits go together well - especially the mass shootout part at a restaurant. There are nevertheless quite humorous moments like Chul Soo's public toilet scene where he relays a 3D X-ray glasses spy image of Ryan's Percy at the porcelain bit (also featured in the movie's trailer). Not good for Chul Soo's ego either. A gadget too far? The action (and there's lots of it) and CGI effects are also far above average, especially near the final, and all in all 'The Spy' does make for a good entertaining yarn. Pity Daniel Henney's playboy assassin Ryan is such a mad cruel bugger, as his JB type suave persona is very good. It's also another nice team up for Kyung-Gu Sol and Si-ri Moon what with their classics of 'Oasis' and 'Peppermint Candy'.
