What I can say….despite him as NIS senior agent, Ji Hyuk is a very easy target to be manipulated. In short, he is good and skilled agent but his brain is one way street and lack of situational awareness… not same type as Jason Bourne or Jack Ryan. Anyway, the story plot is fine and in line with this type of lead character. Very impressed with Baek Mo Sa instead, remind me of MI – Ethan Hunt…. think strategically, act tactically!
