IRIS - korean drama

Started watching it about a month or two ago. Finally coming to the last episode today. It's about friendship between two men and a woman. This is not your regular korean drama, boys meet girls kind of thing. These two men (Kim Hyun Joon and Jin Sa Woo) were in the special forces before they got recruited to join NSS where a beautiful woman, Choi Seung Hee was one of the team leader. Both fell for the same woman. Who will get Seung Hee's heart ?

Beside love triangle, there was also a bunch of terrorist under an international group named IRIS. This group's purpose was to prevent any talk of reunification between North and South Korea. They used different ways to do that, from assassinations, explosions, nuclear bombs, etc.

With a budget of almost 20 million USD, IRIS could easily be the most expensive korean drama ever made. Some of the settings include Hungary, China, Japan and of course Korea. Starting a bit funny on the first episode but getting very intense after that. There's no dull moment at all. Once you start watching it, you just want to continue to the next one and next one.
