* FakeNationality: After a fashion: the [[UsefulNotes/NorthKorea North Korean]] characters are all played by South Koreans, unsurprisingly. According to actor Kim Seung-woo, he had assistance from an ex-North Korean military officer who taught him how to act like an actual North Korean officer.

* [[spoiler:DiabolusExMachina]]: [[spoiler:After everything is over and he's left the NSS, Hyun-Jun gets shot to death in his car on his way to propose to his girlfriend by an unknown assailant whose identity is never revealed within the show. This happens within the final ''five minutes'' of the ''twenty-episode'' drama, and the last scene is of Seung-Hee coming up to his car, unaware of what she is about to find inside. [[McLeaned This is likely because Hyun-Jun's actor would not be returning for the sequel.]]]]

Averted in Iris 2, which is canon, since the assassin is a hitman from Iris.]]

** Pretty much the only reason [[BigBang T.O.P]]'s character even existed in the first place was to draw in a bigger [[EstrogenBrigade female following]].

''Iris'' (아이리스) is a [[UsefulNotes/SouthKorea South Korean]] SpyDrama, notable for being the highest-budget South Korean TV production to date when it made its debut on October 14, 2009 and has ratings American producers would kill for since it was a success in both South Korea and Japan when it was broadcasted on [=KBS2=] and TBS with a Japanese dub. There are plans to bring ''Iris'' to the west. So far, there is no news on whether it is a success or not aside from being released in the US via {{Hulu}}. Note: To avoid confusion, names are in western (given name first) order.
