A quick recap of Good Casting episode 1
The television drama began with a crime scene that featured the betrayal of a team member and then, it introduced viewers to NIS officers Seo Kook Hwan, Bae Moo Hyeok and Geum Dong Seok as they were holding a discussion about various ways to get hold of the wanted criminal. In between the conference scene, viewers were also introduced to the three special NIS agents, who are going to work undercover for capturing Lee Michael.
Two of the female agents -- Baek Chan Mi (Choi Gang Hee) and Hwang Mi Soon (Kim Ji Young)— were a part of a previous operation against the wanted criminal. As a rookie agent, Yoo In Young (Im Ye Eun), is not very familiar with the field work and she doesn't know much about the criminal. But a flashback scene revealed that her husband was shot died by Lee Micheal.

The first episode was good. I'm looking forward to the next one.
I totally enjoyed the first episode! It was a good introduction to our three main characters and I can't wait to see them working together! I look forward to watch the next episode.
The day Ye Eun find out how Chan Mi was there with Min Seok and left him to chase the bad guy.
Really love Choi Kang Hee badass action scenes and I can see Yoo In Young as a timid IT specialist, not the evil character. Can't wait to see and know more of Kim Ji Young. Look forward for next episode.
Just watched 1st episode of Good Casting and I'm crying my eyes out.
