Episode 2 of Spy Myung Wol wasn’t nearly as entertaining as episode 1. It also makes clear just how preposterous the world of this drama is, and how much the viewer is going to have to take a giant suspension of disbelief to accept the premise and go with the flow. I don’t have a problem with wacky concepts and goofy constructs, and so far SMW continues to strike the right tone paired with a zippy execution. I remain overall a happy viewer.
SPW is like Alias-crossed-with-Charlie’s Angels, blended with some potential K-drama emotional angst. I’m not sure how tasty the concoction will be for 16 episodes, but right now it’s still a yummy treat. I’m also certain the acting from all four leads will remain just serviceable – when I say someone is well-cast, it just means that person suits the role and is doing fine, but sometimes it’s very clear they are just acting
