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)
