2PM’s Taecyeon Teases Fans With A Glimpse Of His Character In New Historical Comedy Drama
2PM’s Taecyeon has shared a very small peek at his character in his next project “The Secret Royal Inspector and Jo Yi” (literal title)!
Recently, it was confirmed that Taecyeon will take the lead role in “The Secret Royal Inspector and Jo Yi.”
The historical comedy investigation drama is about a young gourmet who ends up becoming a secret royal inspector (a undercover official who inspects local provinces to expose corruption) teaming up with a divorced woman who is searching for happiness. Together, they set out on a grand scheme to uncover the truth.
Taecyeon will be playing the secret royal inspector Ra Yi Eon who wishes for nothing more than to open a small dumpling store outside the capital where the land is cheap. But he has a good brain that gets him through the state examination and even secures him a spot as an official in the Office of Special Advisors – a position normally reserved for only the most elite. Ultimately, he finds himself receiving secret orders to carry out missions as a secret royal inspector. Even though he unintentionally ended up following a career path that others would die for, Ra Yi Yeon’s real concerns are securing lunch time during work and getting off work right on time. When he gets home from work, he cooks dumplings for himself and lazily rolls around his room. However, the life of the lazy homebody changes when he meets Kim Jo Yi (who will be played by Kim Hye Yoon).
On May 22, Taecyeon uploaded a photo on his Instagram account. It only shows the bottom corner of his face, and it seems like he is wearing a gat (a type of Korean traditional hat worn by men) and hanbok (Korean traditional clothing). He wrote, “Hello, I am a secret royal inspector. I will get into trouble if I show you everything, so just look at this.” He also added the hashtags “The Secret Royal Inspector and Jo Yi” and “Ra Yi Eon.”

“The Secret Royal Inspector and Jo Yi” will be helmed by director Yoo Jong Sun of “Designated Survivor: 60 Days” and “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim” and screenwriter Lee Jae Yoon of “The Undateables” and “Tamra the Island.” The drama is slated for broadcast in the second half of 2021.
