"Secret Reunion" is a very entertaining film, which benefits the most from its production values and Song Jang-ho's performance.

Audience Reviews for The Secret Reunion (ui-hyeong-je)

There's only one reason I watched and that's because Song Kang Ho happens to be one of my favorite actors. This film, unfortunately though, is nothing more than a solid thriller with a small hint of comedic moments here and there. And that's the problem, it seems like the movie really wanted to be a comedy in some parts without really straying too far from what they're trying to do with Song's and Kang's characters individually and as a tandem. As a result the comedy isn't particularly funny, despite having a very talented comedic actor in Song Kang-ho. That said, the acting is more than solid and Song and Kang make a good pair. I thought the film got a little too bromance-y and sentimental at the end, but they're the reason the film is as good as it is, it's just that the script fails their talents. The story is fairly simple with Kang's character having to go into hiding for fear he'll be killed by the North Korean government for being considered a "traitor" and him working and living with the former NIS agent. Whose investigation led to Kang being considered a traitor. There's also a sub-plot with Kang and how he wants to get his family into South Korea before he surrenders and this is where the drama comes from. It isn't that melodramatic, all things considered. As mentioned the film, gets too sentimental on me and that's a flaw. But it is a solid film even if it isn't particularly memorable and even if it happens to be a combination of a bunch of different films all at once. I suggest you watch this on Netflix instant, I wouldn't really pay for this film unless I really had to so that makes netflix instant perfect for this kind of film.
