I’m not going to lie. I really don’t like this drama in the Korean version.

I love musical drama, but in here, the music seems to become exhausted because conflict is an integral part of the plot, it was overloaded to handle.

For the first few episodes, it was fun to watch, but then they failed the consistency to set back the settings of what a musical drama should be.  The balance of melody has been turned off and the harmony vanished by adversities.

Only this drama showcase an enjoyable music list and fresh faces. Aside from that, nothing stands.

Verdict: 6/10

SECRETLY, GREATLY (2013 K-MOVIE)

A group of spies called the 5446 Corps were trained by North Korean elite special forces since their youth, ostensibly towards the lofty goal of unifying Korea. They are ambitiously dispatched to South Korea, where each disguises himself as a fool, an aspiring singer, and a high school student.

Passing boring time without receiving any orders from the North, they gradually get used to life as ordinary neighbors in a small town until one day, their mundane lives are turned upside down when a “secret and great” mission is suddenly assigned to them.

Due to the events of the Second Battle of Yeonpyeong, South Korea demands the names, location, and rank of 30 North Korean spies active in South Korea, promising financial aid to the North on the condition that Pyongyang turns in their spies. To prevent the elites from falling into enemy hands, the North Korean government orders dozens of active duty spies to take their own lives. Meanwhile their North Korean army instructor Kim Tae-won crosses the border to eliminate those who refuse to follow.

I enjoyed the movie even though the ending is heavyhearted.  The acting is good and I like the three guys too.

Verdict: 10/10
