A mix of hilarious, tongue-in-cheek comedy, well-crafted intrigue, and bittersweet romance, Sweet Spy delves into the inner workings of international espionage and police work. It boasts unusually high production values and a cast headed by Nam Sang Mi, star of 2007/2008 hits Time Between Dog and Wolf and Gourmet. Korean-American actor Dennis Oh co-stars as an international spy, adding a refreshingly cross-cultural note by speaking almost solely in English.

When she pulls over a stranger (Dennis Oh as Han Yoo Il) on a routine traffic violation one day, she has no idea that he is in fact an international agent recently arrived in Korea for a top-secret mission. Her action sets in motion a train of events which pulls her into the dangerous and dizzying world of international espionage. Meanwhile, her new station chief, the cold and mysterious Kang Joon (Lee Joo Hyun) re-opens for reasons of his own the case involving her husband's death...Politics, intrigue, and Sun Ae's personal life collide in this fast-paced, well-developed comedy/thriller.
