Trailer: Terius Behind Me

Genre: Romance, Action, Mystery
Episodes: 32 (35 minutes/episode)
Stars: So Ji Sub as Kim Bon / Terius
Jung In Sun as Go Ae Rin
Son Ho Joon as Jin Yong Tae
Im Se Mi as Yoo Ji Yeon



Likes: You can never go wrong with an action-filled, mission impossible-like and, cute and funny drama with the (still) hot and sexy So Ji Sub. Love the action scenes, the cool cars, the cool agents in their cool black suits, even the villains are cool and the cool mums (with one dad) in the neighbourhood! Nothing serious like James Bond or Ethan Hawke but our protagonist, Kim Bon alias TERIUS is as cool and even has soft spot for kids, in other words, a good babysitter! A very lovable character.

So Ji Sub as Kim Bon / Terius – secret agent suits him well. He looked great and sexy in black suit and even hotter driving those cool cars. And he’s the total charmer when he’s with kids!

Jung In Sun as Go Ae Rin – very natural acting as a mum of twins. The bubbly character looked like an easy task for her. Although, I was missing the romantic scenes between her and Kim Bon, she would have had a really good chemistry with her leading man.

Son Ho Joon as Jin Yong Tae – I love this guy. Very natural as well. Funny even without exerting much effort. I love the bromance between him and So Ji Sub. They looked like a great team.

It might not be a new story but there was an obvious effort on it. The mystery that surrounded the whole story was complex. It involved a lot of people, a lot of props and I’m sure a big budget to bring the entire set to Poland. The latter, was an awesome choice for a mission impossible set. But even the local sets and scenes were impressive like the car chase with the bridge scene where our cool Terius jumped off.

Ae Rin’s twins are awesome! Great actors in such a young age! They were so relaxed and sweet especially with the main character. That nose to nose greeting was sooo cute!

The feisty mums and a dad group also known as KIS (Kingcastle Information System). was hilarious but a great support. Everyone has special traits as well as flaws but they always look after each other.

I was rooting for the budding love between Yoo Ji Yeon and Ra Do Woo. They just look cute together :-).

Some cameos but my favourite was Yoon Sang Hyun as the surgeon brother of the lady agent, Yoo Ji Yeon. He’s always very chatty which is his trademark and always liked him for that.

Was curious about that music Terius was always playing on disc. It’s Norah Jones’ Sleepless Nights! Awesome voice!

The Mojito Ending! I love it! No romance but hints of possible ones which is good enough considering the background of the main characters. Also there were hints of future impossible missions together so all good!




Dislikes: Flooded with ad placement like the very obvious Tifanny & Co, Rosa K  and Quiznos. Although the writer tried hard to integrate Rosa K (those bags) in the story, it would have been okay without them at all.

My Rating: 8 stars! (10 as highest)

Woo Ri as Han Hee Joo

Likes: It’s a very likeable story! Unknown girl and popular guy at school getting together. How did it happen?! Yep, you always want to hear the story.

I love the main characters! The good-looking Lee Shin who plays guitar, snobbish especially with girls who like him but sincere when he likes someone. The bubbly, cute Lee Kyu Won who plays Gayageum and works hard to achieve what she likes to do. Both have strong personalities, they just suit each other.

I really like Park Shin Hye and I think of all her dramas I watched, this one is my favorite. She was great here and she looks good with all the hairstyles! The short and wavy one suits her best!

I’m so glad Jung Yong Hwa’s acting improved compared to when he was in You’re Beautiful.
Still more rooms for improvement but he did a great job here. He’s sooo handsome! The character suits him well.

Another special mention, Kang Min Hyuk! Boy, you can act! I guess I’ll be seeing you more in the future!

I’ve got to give credit to the stylist. Well done! Love how you dressed the 2 main characters but the best dressed award goes to So Yi Hyun!

All characters in the story have been given importance. There was a good balance. I will always remember the grandpa, Lee Shin’s dad, Boo Woon, Sa Rang, Yeo Joon and more!

Dislikes: The falling in love part was done in the early episodes. I was still halfway watching it and the 2 leads were going steady already. So as expected, they had to break up just before the ending but you know, they could have at least come up with a good reason why they couldn’t be together for a year. Anyway, just a smalll thing.

My Rating: 7.5 stars! (10 as highest)
