Level 7 Civil Servant is the worst Korean drama I have ever come across with. No, make that the worst Asian drama ever. I admit that I should not speak in such absolutes because it is possible that there will be worse dramas in the future but it is honestly a sad state of affairs if there will be other productions as bad as this one, let alone worse than this one.

I cannot be bothered to write a decent synopsis at the moment (I probably will add one later on because I'm a stickler for consistency but don't hold your breath) because I don't think anyone in their right mind would actually watch this drama for the story.

The drama has such a terrible plot that I am avoiding the scriptwriter's future projects like a plague. The drama is just too scarring for words and I am not stupid enough to subject myself to a similar ordeal in the future.

I was somewhat interested in the drama because I like watching productions about spies. So it was quite a disappointment that the spies in the drama are less than spectacular. Honestly speaking, the spies are a joke, and that's putting it mildly.

In the drama, would-be spies were taught ballroom dancing and gambling but driving lessons are surprisingly left out of the itinerary. This alone is already a flawed concept. Spies are supposed to know how to drive cars and boats, and even fly planes, because they need to be able to get away fast when doing their work. You don't need to be a spy to know this, you just need to have a modicum of common sense.
