Having crossed paths before and left a terrible impression on each other, Kim Seo Won and Han Gil Ro enter their first day of training for the National Intelligence Service with tempers raging. Neither yet has what it takes to truly serve their country, but as they train alongside their teammates, being taught the values of the patriots they cautiously aspire to be, the two begin to see each other in a new light. Unfortunately, unforeseen circumstances and the lies they're forced to tell as a result might ultimately keep them apart -- even as comrades.

7th Grade Civil Servant shows that you can have a great plotline handed to you, with fantastic actors and still manage to mess it up.

The show starts off fairly promising. You have the spy antics (complete with poking fun at common conventios), the idealistic youth and their tough-loving mentors and a mystery that seems intriguing. All complete with good comedy.

And then from there, things go downhill pretty fast. The spies are barely competent as adults, let alone as highly trained agents meant to protect the country. The problems go around in circle after circle after circle ad nauseum, and the conflicts take forever to set up and pay off. Characters change personalities multiple times in one episode. Frankly, it's all pretty head scratching.

The one saving grace is the acting. At some point, it seems even the actors realise how odd the show is and continue to give decent performances for what could easily have been dialed in. Ju Won in particular seems to have fun with it while nailing his character's (far and few) worthwhile moments.

Try it out during a dry spell, but leave any logic at the door.

This was definitely not the follow-up for Ju Won that I was expecting. The drama itself was decent and light-hearted, but had a hard time evoking any emotion from me, whatsoever. I am not sure if it was meant to be a comedy, a romance, an action, etc... I am not sure the drama ITSELF even knew what it was supposed to be. On most accounts, it didn't fit neatly into any category. As for the actors, they did well enough. The chemistry between Choe Gang Hui and Ju Won was credible and the supporting cast did an excellent job interpreting and depicting their characters. I think what this drama lacked the most was a solid script and story line. It's disappointing to see such fine actors in a drama that does nothing to exhibit their true talents.

Both series are cop dramas where the leads have met before and left a bad impression on each other.

I think this drama has been a waste of time.

The first 5 episodes were good and hilarious. I felt like it went downhill after that. Way too long scenes, which could have been avoided and way to short scenes of some of the important moments. The fun drama turned to a serious drama. It didn't work well... Was really annoyed by a lot of scenes.
Some scenes were too staged and the acting halted or were delayed. The relationship between Gil Ro and Seo Won didn't make sense for me. And what happened to their parents approvals? And why this half assed ending for Gil Ro and Seo Won.. Totally not great. I expected a lot, but didn't get it. And the "romantic moments" were just awkward and weird... In all the haste for this drama to suddenly becoming serious, why couldn't we see what happened with Mi Rae and JJ? I assume they went to prison, but seriously, no closure?

Unfortunately only 2/5 from me! Really enjoyable in the beginning, but had to force myself to get an ending from this drama. Maybe I should watch the movie instead.

Watching ep 5 and I like it so far. It's nice some comedy once in a while and Joo Won is amazing!

everything is perfect about it except the female lead
like seriously ! if the female lead was a different actres (one that would suit jowon , not one who could be his mother) i would be 100% sure that this drama would have been one of the top dramas out there !

If you like action, don't watch that, it's a comedy first. Nothing makes sense whatsoever but it works because it's funny. I am thinking about it for an hour now and I still didn't find one single thing that happened that makes sense. It feels more like a parody that takes itself too seriously... it's weird. Weirdest action drama ever.

I stiil liked it though and Joo Won made me laugh so much!!!

I found it pretty enjoyable. I laughed it had romance but not much just like I liked it cause it was pretty grown up nothing too cute just normal. But yes it was funny and it had action. So i can say that this was more an action comedy than romance action or romance comedy. I didn't expect anything from the actors and didn't compared their roles to their previous works. SeoWon parents... never ever understood the "keep it a secret" part of their daughters work but it was all part of the comedy act. Regarding Joo Won this only proves his acting skills and that he is very versatile. KangHee she have done this before so she was on her regular role.
