One rule. Do not love. You can be the target.
Trust, betrayal, conspiracy. Let the mission begins.


The history of Korean dramas will be rewritten in 2009. A grand project beyond anyone's imagination is finally put in action! The Korean Peninsula is the last divided country remaining in the world. The US, Russia, China and Japan--the powers surrounding South and North Korea--are in constant political and military tension in the region over the nuclear issue and the six-way talks.

This drama is the story of special agents dedicated to the life-risking mission of preventing a second Korean war against the backdrop of such regional dynamics. Through grueling training, they have come to not fear death and not feel any guilt over killing. They move upon orders and go to all lengths to complete their mission. They have their own league invisible to the common people. There is no mechanism or organization to protect them as they act against the human instinct to protect life. The government does not acknowledges their existence. They are on their own to protect themselves.

But they also have one thing difficult for them to control. The biggest danger and taboo for these highly trained agents is "love." The spy action genre is an untapped area in Korean dramas. The challenge of this new field is encouraging given that viewers in today's visual era desire something new more than ever. Weapons and equipment used in actual espionage missions have been utilized for the greatest sense of authenticity. Overseas shooting in Japan and Hungary helps to faithfully portray the international spy warfare going on in the world we live in.

The country's first blockbuster scale spy action series "IRIS" will establish itself as a series worth watching over and over again.

Character Description
Top 707 agents Kim Hyunjun (Lee Byunghun) and Jin Sawoo (Jung Junho) are blood brothers who swore to trust each other and unchanging friendship for life. Hyunjun had lost his parents in a car accident when he was young. He doesn't have much memory of them from the shock of their death. Not only that, he always carries a sense of void and loneliness in his heart. But his friend Sawoo had filled that void. The men go to 707 Corps to qualify as agents. They stand out and get noticed by the National Security System (NSS) and become the top agents. They meet agent Choi Seungjee (Kim Taehee) there and both fall in love for her. But Hyunjun and Seunghee become close and Sawoo fights to hide his feelings for Seunghee. He tries to be happy for Hyunjun. Hyunjun and Seunghee date in secret from the other NSS agents and eventually go on a secret trip to Japan. When they return to Korea, they are immediately sent on a mission to Hungary with Sawoo. When they successfully finish off their job with immaculate teamwork and are celebrating it.. a message arrives to Hyunjun asking him to meet in secret.
