3 Reasons To Look Forward To The Premiere Of Kim Myung Soo And Kwon Nara’s New Historical Drama
KBS 2TV’s new Monday-Tuesday drama “Secret Royal Inspector” (literal title) is gearing up for its premiere!
Set in the Joseon dynasty, “Secret Royal Inspector” tells the story of a secret royal inspector who goes undercover in the provinces to bring justice, uncover corruption, and solve the people’s problems.
Below are three reasons to tune in to the premiere of “Secret Royal Inspector”!
Secret royal inspectors who punish evil and bring justice
Kim Myung Soo will play Sung Yi Kyum, a public official at the Hongmungwan (Office of Special Advisors) who suddenly becomes appointed to the position of secret royal inspector and embarks on a new journey. Hong Da In (Kwon Nara), a damo (a woman who works for a Joseon government office), and Park Choon Sam (Lee Yi Kyung), Sung Yi Kyum’s servant and right-hand man, will join Sung Yi Kyum’s team and journey together. Viewers are excited to find out if the passionate trio will be able to solve the people’s hardships after becoming the eyes and ears of the King and what difficulties they will face as they investigate the malpractices of corrupt officials.
Three-dimensional characters and interesting relationships
Sung Yi Kyum, who becomes a gambling playboy at night, will have an interesting first encounter with Hong Da In when she is working undercover as a gisaeng (a courtesan trained in music and the arts). Furthermore, although Sung Yi Kyum looks bright and immature, he has an unexpected side to him and a secret backstory he is hiding from others. Similarly, Hong Da In is a figure shrouded in mystery, raising curiosity for how their stories will unfold. Although Sung Yi Kyum and Hong Da In will start on bad terms, they will gradually become closer while working together.
Reliable actors and talented historical drama director
Already, the lineup of actors Kim Myung Soo, Kwon Nara, Lee Yi Kyung, and Lee Tae Hwan is creating buzz. The stellar cast will also be joined by the talented actors Ahn Nae Sang, Choi Jong Won, Son Byung Ho, Chae Dong Hyun, Park Joo Hyung, Shin Ji Hoon, Han Jae Suk, Shin Ji Woo, Kim Joo Young, and Jo Soo Min. As these skilled actors create great synergy and transform into their respective unique characters, the story will become even richer. Furthermore, director Kim Jung Min, who led other hit historical dramas such as “Queen: Love and War,” “Grand Prince,” “Gunman In Joseon,” and “The Princess’s Man,” is expected to create another masterpiece with the upcoming drama.
“Secret Royal Inspector” premieres on December 21 at 9:30 p.m. KST.
