Netflix 'Yaksha: Ruthless Operations' is meeting viewers. It is a movie that has no regrets compared to the previous K-spy treasures "Berlin" and "Steel Rain," which were highly praised by the public.

"Yaksha" was released on the 8th. This work depicts a breathtaking close race between a black team dedicated to the secret operations of the NIS, a special inspection prosecutor, and intelligence agents from each country in Shenyang, China. Director Na Hyun, who received a hot response with "Prison," took the megaphone.

Investigate 'Yaksha' Corporate Corruption Han Ji-hoon (Park Hae-soo), who was demoted to the National Intelligence Service's dispatched prosecutor, will visit Shenyang for a special inspection of the black team led by Ji Kang-in (Seol Kyung-gu). Their cooperation begins as Han Ji-hoon persistently follows black team agents who are trying to carry out operations outside of his sight.

Both Ji Kang-in and Han Ji-hoon know the importance of justice, but their values are very different. They argue with each other and reveal deep trust in each other. For the strong, justice is a value that must be observed no matter what method is used. On the other hand, Han Ji-hoon believes that justice should be defended in a just way.

Together, the two face the enemy and accept each other's thoughts little by little. The tasks they have to solve involve the interests of people from various countries, including South Korea, North Korea, and Japan. Enemies exist both inside and outside. In a situation where it is difficult to trust anyone, Ji Kang-in and Han Ji-hoon perform their duties showing deep trust in each other.

As the background of the work is Shenyang, the exotic scenery embroidering the screen gives great fun to viewers. The colorful actions of the black team agents performing the mission delight the eyes, and Seol Kyung-gu and Park Hae-soo show off their chemistry based on their delicate acting skills. Yang Dong-geun's performance is also brilliant. He adds a pleasant laugh throughout the play.

Berlin and Steel Rain are hot-received intelligence prior to Yaksha: Ruthless Operations. The two films were released in 2013 and 2017, respectively. Berlin, starring Ha Jung-woo, Han Seok-kyu, Ryu Seung-bum and Jeon Ji-hyun, attracted 7.16 million viewers. "Steel Rain," which features the chemistry between Jung Woo-sung and Kwak Do-won, attracted 4.45 million people to the theater.

Like "Berlin" and "Steel Rain," "Yaksha: Ruthless Operations" attracts attention with colorful action scenes. The gun used to shoot "Yacha" is 36 guns and the number of bullets is about 7,700. The cast learned basic shooting posture, gun gripping method, and live-fire shooting to digest the character. The fact that it captures the meeting of the people of South and North Korea is what the three works have in common.

In the case of "Yaksha: Ruthless Operations," it is more eye-catching that you can see the performance of women in action scenes. In Berlin, Jeon Ji-hyun's character, Ryeon Jung-hee, fled from the enemy under the protection of her husband, Pyo Jong-sung (Ha Jung-woo), and was kidnapped and used as a means of luring him. The battle scene in "Steel Rain" was also centered on men. But 'Yaksha: Ruthless Operations' was different. Hee-won (IEL) broke stereotypes about gender roles by performing his duties as a black team agent.

In 'Yaksha', the twist is particularly noticeable. Several situations that the audience did not expect add to the tension and change the atmosphere of the play in an instant. There are characters who are the main characters of spy movies but have a little clumsiness. Han Ji-hoon is not used to using his body.

Earlier, director Na Hyun said at an online production briefing for "Yaksha," "We can think of intelligence action as Hollywood's exclusive property. I hope you feel that the spy action movies in Northeast Asia can be an interesting story," he said, expressing confidence in his work. Attention is focusing on whether "Yaksha" will be able to prove the power of K-spy treasure.
