Kim Myung Soo Describes His New Character In Upcoming Historical Drama
Kim Myung Soo talked about his new character Sung Yi Kyum in upcoming KBS drama “Secret Royal Inspector” (literal title).
“Secret Royal Inspector” is a comic mystery drama set in the Joseon dynasty that stars Kim Myung Soo as Sung Yi Kyum, a secret royal inspector who travels undercover to the provinces in order to hear the stories of the people, uncover corruption, and deliver justice.
Sung Yi Kyum is rookie secret royal inspector who used to live an exciting double life as a public official and a gambler. He is both passionate and clumsy, and he will do whatever it takes to catch corrupt government officials and bring justice to the people.
Kim Myung Soo talked about how he’s becoming more and more like Sung Yi Kyum. He shared, “I am making an effort to understand my character and faithfully portray him. When I wear hanbok (traditional Korean clothes) now, I automatically hold my hands behind my back, and I focus on my duties. Those kinds of characteristics resemble my character, and it makes me realize, ‘Wow, I have become Sung Yi Kyum.'”
Kim Myung Soo summed up Sung Yi Kyum in three words: pure, compassionate, and just. These are the character traits that will help Sung Yi Kyum achieve peace and justice while experiencing amazing growth on his journey as a secret royal inspector.
“Secret Royal Inspector” premieres on December 21 at 9:30 p.m. KST. Check out the latest teasers here!
