Kim Myung Soo And Lee Tae Hwan Are Half-Brothers With Vastly Different Fates In Upcoming Historical Drama
“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.
Kim Myung Soo and Lee Tae Hwan will play half-brothers Sung Yi Kyum and Sung Yi Bum, who are born from Joseon’s local government official Sung Yong Jae’s wife and hand maiden respectively. From a young age, the two have been closely affectionate with each other and shared warm memories together, but due to Joseon’s desolate reality, they’ll have vastly different fates.
The newly released stills depict Sung Yi Kyum shooting an arrow in handsome attire while Sung Yi Bum appears in shabby clothing. Their contrasting visuals reflect their changed reality.
Sung Yi Kyum, as a secret royal inspector, and Sung Yi Bum, as the head of a group of bandits, will walk completely different paths. Viewers are curious to learn more about the painful story of the two brothers who possess warm memories together yet are divided by reality.
Scriptwriters Park Sung Hoon and Kang Min Seo revealed that they have a special affection for Sung Yi Bum’s character. They shared, “He’s a figure who runs into limitations in the world due to his status as a son born from a male aristocrat and a woman of lower class, but he materializes justice in his own way.” They continued, “Although he was an innocent character in the past, he becomes fierce and sharp after facing ups and downs in life. It would be great if viewers watch out carefully for him since he’s a figure with a huge twist.”
“Secret Royal Inspector” premieres on December 21 at 9:30 p.m. KST. Check out the latest teasers here!
