Watch: Ji Jin Hee Receives A Mission To Stop His Wife Kim Hyun Joo’s Quest For Justice In “Undercover” Teaser
JTBC’s upcoming drama “Undercover” has released a fourth teaser!
Based on the BBC series of the same name, “Undercover” is about Han Jung Hyun, an agent for 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 gets nominated for the position of head of the Corruption Investigation Office for High-ranking Officials (CIO).
The new teaser begins with Choi Yeon Soo at a hearing for her upcoming nomination. As a human rights lawyer, Choi Yeon Soo has lived her whole life in pursuit of justice and truth, and has gained the trust of the public due to her values and talent. There is palpable tension in the air as she is asked, “Are you confident that you won’t become the handmaiden to power?” She replies sharply, “I won’t respond to ridiculous questions.”
The teaser moves to a flashback scene featuring Yeon Woo Jin and Han Sun Hwa, who play Han Hyun Jin and Choi Yeon Soo at the time of their first meeting in college. Han Hyun Jin falls in love with Han Sun Hwa because of her passion to do the right thing as the students are swept up in a massive demonstration against the authorities.
Years later, Han Jung Hyun receives a mission from Do Young Geol (Jung Man Sik) to block Choi Yeon Soo from getting nominated to the CIO. He responds angrily, “I won’t block her. It would be faster to block the person who is telling you to order me to block her.” Choi Yeon Soo is also surrounded by enemies who want to stop her from getting the position. When one of them asks her, “Is that a threat?”, she responds with steel: “No, it’s a declaration of war.”
“Undercover” premieres on April 23 at 11 p.m. KST. Check out the teaser below!
