Part-time Spy is nowhere near so-called South Korean Classics but it is a decent watch.
23 August 2017 | by shobanchittuproluSee all my reviews

Part-Time Spy (2017): "Part-Time Spy" is a 2017 South Korean action-comedy film starring Kang Ye Won, Han Chae Ah, and Namgoong Min.I never saw the Paul Feig and Melissa McCarthy film Spy from a couple of years back. Not really my bag, so strange that I thought this South Korean film, with a similar-yet-different-premise, might be.

Plot: Jang Young-Sil (Gang Ye-Won) barely lands a job at the NSA (National Security Agency). She is hired as a contract worker to write positive comments for the NSA. Na Jung-An (Han Chae-Ah) is a detective who often uses foul language. They carry out an infiltration operation to recover money that was stolen from her boss in a voice phishing scheme.

My Review: My favorite part of the film is definitely Na Jung An. She's this kick-ass detective with anger management issues. I actually enjoy watching her much more than the female lead. Plus, she beats up the bad guys like it's nobody's business.

On the other hand, the slapstick comedy is quite silly. This is not the sort of movie that has a rich story or a lot of heart. It would have been better if the screenwriter had developed Min Seok more and had given Na Jung An more of a backstory. They are far more interesting than the main character, who, in theory should be funny but whose execution falls short in comparison.

So,Part-time Spy is nowhere near so-called South Korean Classics but it is a decent watch.

My rating 6/10
