Maeil Business Newspaper’s Star Today recently spoke to The Spies Who Loved Me alum Im Joo Hwan aka Derek Hyun and quizzed him on the ending of the show. If you didn’t know, the drama The Spies Who Loved Me is a love triangle, centring around Kang Ah Reum (played by Yoo In Na) a wedding dress designer is stuck between her husband Derek Hyun (Im Joo Hwan) and ex-husband Jun Ji Hoon (Eric) who are both spies working undercover.

 

The drama ends with Derek Hyun a secret spy faking his death as he fails to choose between his wife and mother. His wife, Kang Ah Reum (played by Yoo In Na), then returns to her ex-husband, Jun Ji Hoon, while Derek’s mother blames her crimes on her “dead” son. Even though all main characters of teh show get a happy ending, Derek Hyun still remains unfulfilled after faking his death. Speaking more about the ending for his character, Im Joo Hwan confessed that while fans may not be happy, he is perfectly satisfied with the conclusion. 

 

He noted that leaving was teh only available option to protect the character’s loved ones, he also commended the character’s selflessness to be able to sacrifice his own happiness for teh ones he loves just to protect them. Im Joo Hwan then reminisces that only if his character Derek was not a spy, he could have lived happily with his wife and family, without having to fake his death. On the next phase for his character, Im Joo Hwan said that maybe Derek could become a spy on the side of justice.
