I saw this movie on a long haul flight with English subtitles over the Atlantic. This was such a funny movie I was cracking up in my seat, then I told my wife to watch it and she thought it was really funny as well. It's a comedy action flick with slapstick style Asian humor. I thought the acting and directing was actually pretty good. Since I was on a long flight, maybe this movie seemed better than it really was, but I did thoroughly enjoy it. Wish the Amazon title would spell "Girlfreind" correctly.

After researching this title, I found that there are two versions of this on Amazon. The negative reviews on this product apply to the one titled MY GIRLFRIEND IS AN AGENT (STANDARD EDITION). The DO NOT apply to the one titled "MY GIRLFRIEND IS AN AGENT [2009, Korea][Official All-Region DVD]" This edition is the one with the slipcase and the large diagonal English lettering on the cover. The subtitles, picture, audio and overall quality of this version are perfect. Amazon links both products to the same reviews, which is messed up. But anyway, rest assured, if you want to see this movie, just make sure you purchase that version.

Having watched the Korea drama inspired by this movie, it only made sense to find and watch the film. I wasn't disappointed. While not quite slap-stick, it's definitely a tongue-in-cheek spy thriller. I've watched the female lead in other projects and enjoyed her role equally here. Though comedy, the characters were still drawn in a believable fashion and the plot was interesting. The translated title is a bit off base, it should have been 7th Grade Civil Servant, as was the title of the (previously mentioned) series. But I'll excuse that since marketing demands are different for film and television.

Overall, I was pleased with the movie and enjoyed the storytelling. I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a few laughs and a relaxed viewing experience.

My sole Korean-speaking swag consists of my knowing the original title of this 2009 movie: Chilgeup gongmuwon. For western audiences the title is either 7th Grade Civil Servant or My Girlfriend is an Agent (pick your preference). Chilgeup gongmuwon made a huge impression on the Korean box office, never mind that, for me, this was only a 3 out of 5 stars flick. It's hit or miss, more hit than miss.

As always with foreign-language cinema, I recommend that you watch it with the original language playing and read the English sub-titles. It's rare that I'm down with English dubbing. This one does lift a page from Mr. & Mrs. Smith but there's also a whiff of True Lies. Anh Soo Ji (Ha-Neul Kang) is a savvy covert operative who has to keep lying to her boyfriend to maintain her cover. That poor sap, Lee Jaejung (Ji-Hwan Kang), finally gets fed up with Anh Soo Ji's falsehoods, and he dumps her and amscrays to Canada to study international accounting. Because that's what you do when your heart gets all broke.

Three years go by before the ex-lovers bump into each other, and in a men's restroom (don't ask). Festering emotions boil over; there's a huge row, and you think that's that. But then they keep running into each other, with Anh Soo Ji still persisting in pretense. But here's a shift in the "relationship": Lee Jaejung is now a fledgling spy for another espionage agency. So now they're both pushing a masquerade.

The film's McGuffin revolves around a deadly weaponized chemical agent coveted by the Russian mob. What are the odds that both our characters get mixed up in this? (Odds are good.)

2009's Chilgeup gongmuwon was popular enough that it inspired a television series in 2013.

The story starts as the hero is about to leave Korea for a job abroad who waits for his girlfriend at the airport until he has to go. Unknown to him however, is the fact that she is a top agent for the secret service internal security section and she is on the job, so she doesn't get his message until it's too late, and she rushes to the airport to see him and is restrained by security screaming his name as his plane takes off. Several years later they meet again but he is now a rookie agent for the secret service foreign section.They both restart their romance while keeping secret from each other the true nature of their jobs. Add in the fact that both sections are investigating the same case without telling each other, and both our heroes thinking that the other could be a criminal, and you end up with a nice little screwball comedy with some good stunts and pratfalls. The hero bumbles through the action yet has a keen mind for detection and risks all for the woman he loves, while the heroine is lethal and smart but wants to bring him in herself because she cannot believe the man she loves could do this and if he has she will get him.
This film is great. It's funny with a nice bit of action and comedy in a pool of romance. What else could you ask for?

This movie was so funny that I snorted up my hot cocoa up through my nose!

You can't help but feel sorry for the male lead -- what a sap!

The female lead, the always excellent and cute Ha-neul Kim, does a really good job with stringing along two guys (her long-time boyfriend and rookie NIS agent as well as a milquetoast South Korean businessman). Her action scenes are well-done and this film was better than two other of her films, "Lovers of 6 Years" and "You Are My Pet", that I have seen.

Overall, I can understand why this was the #4 film in South Korea in 2009.

Lots of action and the film moves along nicely.

I agree with another reviewer that the subtitles are messed up. Whoever was in charge of the subtitles need a rope around their necks. FAST. Better, brush up on your Korean, maggots!

Enjoy!
