Review

A reporter that’s been laid off starts an impossible fight against a national intelligence agency. He investigates spy cases and begins questioning the credibility of the incredulous confessions. Yoo Wu-seong was a Seoul city official who was accused of being a spy. His sister’s confession was decisive in solving the case. Reporters went back and forth to the border between China and North Korea and contributed greatly in getting the verdict that the espionage charges were concocted. They keep digging to find other similar cases that are hard to approach. Spy Nation is an unusual documentary that uncovers the truth that lies beyond an incident. Choi leads his team into areas that have been protected by power and is relentless holding people responsible for their actions. This is truly a beacon in a time when the press are losing ground.
