Kim Myung Soo And Lee Yi Kyung Are Closer Than Brothers In Upcoming Drama With Kwon Nara
KBS 2TV’s upcoming drama “Secret Royal Inspector” (literal title) has unveiled a new sneak peek of its three leads!
“Secret Royal Inspector” is a comic mystery drama set in the Joseon dynasty and starring Kim Myung Soo as Sung Yi Kyum, a secret royal inspector who travels undercover to provinces in order to hear the stories of the people, uncover corruption, and deliver justice.
A gambling libertine who unexpectedly finds himself walking the path of a secret royal inspector, Sung Yi Kyum is always accompanied by his passionate and loyal servant Park Choon Sam (played by Lee Yi Kyung). Although the two men are from different walks of life, they have built up so much affection for one another over the years that they are closer than brothers, and their chemistry will be a crucial part of the upcoming drama.
In newly released stills from “Secret Royal Inspector,” Sung Yi Kyum and Park Choon Sam’s close friendship is visible in the way they are completely at ease around one another. Although their clothing indicates the difference in their social status, Sung Yi Kyum’s warm gaze as he listens to Park Choon Sam talk reveals that he still holds the other in high esteem.
In addition to the two men’s fun bromance, Kim Myung Soo will also be displaying a different kind of chemistry with female lead Kwon Nara. Kwon Nara will be starring in the drama as Hong Da In, a damo (a woman who works for a Joseon government office) who goes undercover as a gisaeng (a courtesan trained in music and the arts). While in disguise as a gisaeng, she ends up crossing paths with Sung Yi Kyum, and they eventually join forces in a battle for justice.
“Secret Royal Inspector” will premiere on December 21 at 9:30 p.m. KST.
