All eyes are on KBS's all-star espionage action thriller Iris
which closed the year as one of the highest-rated and most acclaimed dramas of 2009. Movie stars Lee Byung Hun and Kim Tae Hee make their small-screen comebacks playing secret agents caught in a dangerous game of love, betrayal, and national security. Loosely inspired by the film Shiri
, the big-budget drama revolves around globe-trotting agents and assassins, with a stunning cast that includes Jung Jun Ho (My Boss, My Hero
), Kim Seung Woo (How to Meet a Perfect Neighbor
), Kim So Yeon (The Grand Chef
), Japanese actress Fueki Yuko (Yoo Min), and Big Bang's T.O.P as a steely hitman. Featuring explosive action scenes and location shooting in China, Japan, Russia, and the United States, Iris
earns its blockbuster status with a grand production scale and ambitious subject matter rarely seen on Korean television.
Best friends Hyun Joon (Lee Byung Hun) and Sa Woo (Jung Joon Ho) were recruited into the NSS (National Security System) together by Seung Hee (Kim Tae Hee) and Chul Young (Kim Seung Woo). After finishing their first mission together, Hyun Joon is sent on a solo mission in Hungary, but things go terribly wrong after a shocking betrayal, leaving Hyun Joon to be presumed dead. One year later, the two Koreas are on the verge of reunification and Hyun Joon returns to the NSS, out for revenge on the people who shattered his life. His target is a secret organization called "Iris" that is interfering with national security and reunification.
