Iris +

Iris **\ (Korean)
20 episodes
Athena: Goddess of War (Korean)
20 episodes
Kim Tae Hee as Choi Seung Hee
Lee Byung Hun as Kim Hyun Joon

I'm still weeping over this one. (didn't I once mention I detest tragic endings?) and yet.. It was a good story. As epic as it was disturbing. I particularly felt for Hyun Joon. The poor guy comes to the horrific realization he has been manipulated and used throughout his life and try as he might, he simply could not break free of the grip that held onto him. So, was it that he was punished for loving the wrong girl? (because Sa Woo was warned about her also,) then why was Sa Woo killed? loyalty confusion? likely 'Mr. Night' knew about it, since the director was only jailed and not actually killed.) and what was that final 'alright' Seung Hee gave on the phone in the car, for? she said they wanted her to join them.. and to kill Hyun Joon, and that she had refused. Sa Woo had said he had gone into it because it was either he had to kill his best friend, or she had to kill her love. Was she saying 'alright' to having someone else do it? and what of Vick? He was a good mindless assassin... was it in their plans to see him killed by Hyun Joon? (not that I blame Hyun Joon's thinking after all that Vick had done.) Perhaps it really was -all- about her.. raising another mindless assassin? especially if they considered the possible results of jacking her mind and heart around by making her forbidden fruit to the one guy she really loves. ahh *sigh* so many questions. Not your usual drama fair here. warning: fairly high death count, tragic ending. 'saddest death' Prizes go to Sa Woo and Hyun Joon.. and shared with City Hunter. Action, mystery, thriller, romance, spy/assassin

An ill-fated/tragic love story of sorts, about 2 best friends, an instant love, corruption to the highest and deepest of levels, a secret within many secrets, manipulation, and the threat of both unification, as well as nuclear terrorism.
