Jung So Min Joins Jo Byeong Gyu In Talks For New Historical Drama

Jung So Min may be appearing in a new drama!

On January 27, Korean news outlet Sports Chosun reported that according to an industry insider, the actress will be playing the female lead in “Tale of the Secret Royal Inspector and Jo Yi” (literal title).

In response to the report, her agency Blossom Entertainment commented, “She received an offer to star in the drama and is reviewing it. Nothing has been confirmed yet.”

“Tale of the Secret Royal Inspector and Jo Yi” will revolve around secret royal inspectors whose job is to go undercover and expose corruption. It will especially focus on the journey of a lazy secret royal inspector and a fiery woman who has a modern way of thinking as they join hands to investigate the truth.

Jo Byeong Gyu is currently in talks to play the male lead Ra Yi Eon (Ryan). He is the youngest secret royal inspector who got first place in the state exams. He’s a dashing man with languid eyes, but the problem is that he doesn’t have any future goals.

Jung So Min has been offered the role of Kim Jo Yi, a passionate woman who is ahead of her times. She is a realist who believes that people can get divorced. She lives in an era when women can’t even be part of the family registry, but she dreams of getting divorced and having a fresh start in life.

“Tale of the Secret Royal Inspector and Jo Yi” will begin filming as soon as the casting is complete and will air later this year.
