Watch: Ji Jin Hee Lives A Double Life To Protect His Wife Kim Hyun Joo In “Undercover” Teaser
“Undercover,” which is based on the BBC series of the same name, is about a man named Han Jung Hyun (Ji Jin Hee), an agent with the National Security Agency who has been hiding his true identity ever since he fell in love with Choi Yeon Soo (Kim Hyun Joo), a human rights lawyer who becomes the first head of the Corruption Investigation Office for High-ranking Officials (CIO).
Yeon Woo Jin is cast as Han Jung Hyun’s younger self, while Han Sun Hwa is cast as Choi Yeon Soo’s younger self. The teaser begins with Yeon Woo Jin playing “Lee Suk Kyu,” which was the character’s name before he went undercover as “Han Jung Hyun.” Soon after getting his new identity, he has a fateful meeting with a passionate young woman who introduces herself as Choi Yeon Soo and asks him his name.
The new life that Han Jung Hyun builds with Choi Yeon Soo starts to falter when Choi Yeon Soo is nominated for the CIO. As a human rights lawyer, Choi Yeon Soo has always believed in justice and uncovering the truth at all costs. She has developed a reputation for being trustworthy and talented, but her new position will force her to confront some shocking truths about her own married life.
Han Jung Hyun tells his wife, “I don’t need anything except to be with you like this.” But after she gets nominated for the high-ranking position, Do Young Geol (Jung Man Sik) says, “Listen. Choi Yeon Soo absolutely cannot be the head of the CIO.” As an undercover agent, he is given the cruel mission to block his wife’s nomination, and Do Young Geol says coldly, “Congratulations on your return, Lee Suk Kyu.”
