Shinhwa’s Eric And Im Joo Hwan Face Off As Yoo In Na’s Former And Current Husbands In “The Spies Who Loved Me”
MBC’s upcoming drama “The Spies Who Loved Me” has revealed a glimpse of the tense dynamic between its two male leads!
“The Spies Who Loved Me” is a suspenseful new romantic comedy about a woman who inadvertently gets caught up in the world of espionage. Yoo In Na will star in the drama as Kang Ah Reum, a wedding dress designer who gets married twice, to two husbands who both harbor many secrets.
Shinhwa’s Eric will star as Kang Ah Reum’s first husband Jun Ji Hoon, a charming and unpredictable secret agent who works for Interpol, while Im Joo Hwan will play her second husband Derek Hyun, a highly intelligent corporate spy with a competitive streak.
On October 9, the upcoming drama released a sneak peek of the uncomfortable tension between the two men, both of whom are undercover. Jun Ji Hoon poses as a travel photographer while diligently surveilling Derek Hyun’s every move, and the fierce glint in his eyes betrays his true identity as a spy. Meanwhile, Derek Hyun exudes a cold but gentlemanly charm in his disguise as a diplomat.
However, an intriguing third photo of the two leads captures Derek Hyun tying Jun Ji Hoon’s necktie for him with a friendly smile, raising the question of how exactly the two men got into such a situation—and what that will mean for protagonist Kang Ah Reum, who is currently married to one and divorced from the other.
Eric commented, “Derek Hyun is a character who is the polar opposite of Jun Ji Hoon. He has a sophisticated and intellectual charm, but he also exudes a cold sharpness. Please look forward to the face-off between the two characters.”
Im Joo Hwan went on to praise his co-star Eric, remarking, “I always look forward to filming my scenes with [Eric]. He’s an actor that I want to learn a lot from while acting together.”
“The Spies Who Loved Me” will premiere on October 21 at 9:20 p.m. KST.
