MBC’s newest romantic-comedy series The Spies Who Loved Me has featured its lead stars Eric Mun and Yoo In-na in a spectacular and sizzling main poster.
The Spies Who Loved Me follows the life of Kang Ah-reum (Yoo In-na, Touch Your Heart), a divorcee who works as a wedding dress designer. She finds love again and decides to get married for the second time without the slightest idea that the two men in her life are both keeping their true identities from her. Her ex-husband, Jun Ji-hoon (Eric Mun, Eccentric! Chef Moon), is a secret agent for Interpol who has been disguising himself as a travel writer. He practically lives off his cut from doing classified and risky missions, which is why he could never reveal it to Ah-reum even after they went their separate ways. Now, Ah-reum is married to Derek Hyun (Lim Ju-hwan, The Game: Towards Zero), a diplomatic official. Derek acts gentle and warm on the outside to mask his true personality as a cold-blooded corporate spy. He sincerely loves his wife, but he is willing to do anything for his job. When untoward circumstances bring Ji-hoon to Ah-reum and Derek’s picture-perfect life, the two spies eventually end up putting her at the center of a thrilling espionage battle.
Set against the background of blurred city lights, the main poster presents a creative and modern take to A Moment of Romance’s most unforgettable scene where the leading pair spontaneously put on their wedding clothes, hopped on a cool-looking motorcycle, and sped their way to the church. Jun Ji-hoon and Kang Ah-reum boldly reenact the infamous night scene with a SPY1021-plated big bike but instead of leather shoes, Ji-hoon opted for a pair of sporty sneakers. Similarly, Ah-reum ditched the conventional long, white gown for an alluring, black minidress, complete with a tulle veil. Both of them shoot intense gazes at the camera, like passionate newlyweds who are all ready to set out for one unconventional married life.
Set to depict a funny and thrilling lead-up to Ah-reum’s discovery of her inadvertent involvement in the world of espionage, the production team behind the series further shared, “The poster contains an interesting anti-war code that the viewers will soon get to discover in The Spies Who Loved Me. The strong synergy between Moon Jung-hyuk (Eric Mun) and Yoo In-na is perfectly shown in that still shot.”
The Spies Who Loved Me is helmed by director Lee Jae-jin of The Banker (2019) and marks screenwriter Lee Ji-min’s first script work for a television drama. The writer’s previous projects include critically acclaimed movies such as The Age of Shadows (2016) and The Man Standing Next (2020). It is slated to premiere on October 21 at 9:30 p.m. KST as a Wednesday-Thursday drama, replacing When I Was the Most Beautiful.
