Actor Jin-Woong Cho (aka Jin-woong Jo), who plays Hak-seong Choi, the Director of South Korea's National Intelligence Service (NIS), said of his experience of working with the other cast members on this movie: "It was my first time working with Hwang Jung-min, so it was exciting and I learned a lot. He's a role model for me in many ways, so I actually felt a bit shy. What I felt from Hwang Jung-min, Lee Sung-min, and Ju Ji-hoon can be summed up in the word "intense". The film itself is intense, and the situations it portrays have a real concentrated impact, so I felt a deep intensity to the acting. And it may be surprising to hear, but Ju Ji-hoon was very cheerful and good natured on set, bringing us all together and helping to maintain a good balance." See more »
This is so good that I watched it again right after I finished watching the 1st time. Also, I got so many questions after 1st watch, but those were all cleared after the 2nd watch even though I'm not familiar with Korea's history. Politicians are supposed to serve people, to do things for people, but it seems most of them forgot what they were here for after few years, and are afraid of losing power and money. Is the situation better nowadays? I don't know, and there are still many bad politicians everywhere. Still a long way to go. What we can do is to do our best. Maybe we need to try harder to have faith and keep doing the right things, and we will meet some people doing the same things one day even they are hostile. That could change the world. Highly, highly recommend this one.
