2PM’s Taecyeon And Kim Hye Yoon Go Overboard With Their Disguises In “Secret Royal Inspector & Joy”
tvN’s “Secret Royal Inspector & Joy” has revealed intriguing new stills ahead of the upcoming episode!
“Secret Royal Inspector & Joy” is a historical comedy drama starring 2PM’s Taecyeon as Ra Yi Eon, a young gourmand who is appointed a secret royal inspector (a government official who travels undercover to local provinces to inspect them and uncover corruption) against his will. Kim Hye Yoon stars as Kim Jo Yi, a divorced woman searching for happiness who winds up joining forces with him to investigate and battle corruption.
The previous episode revealed the first meeting of the investigation team members and followed them as they undertook their first assignment, which unfolded in a comedic manner as the squad members donned various disguises in order to infiltrate the villain’s ranks. However, their true identities were soon revealed, and the episode ended on a nail-biting cliffhanger as Park Tae Seo (Lee Jae Kyoon) pointed his sword at Ra Yi Eon’s neck.
With the end of the episode leaving viewers’ hearts pounding with nervousness, this newly released still might make hearts pound in a different way. Alone in a room, Ra Yi Eon and Kim Jo Yi stand face-to-face as they make steady eye contact. Kim Jo Yi’s arms hold Ra Yi Eon’s waist, as if they are one second away from an embrace, making viewers wonder if their relationship is about to change.
In another set of stills, the pair are also seen undercover in their theater disguises, with Ra Yi Eon even donning makeup and a feminine outfit to perfect his getup. Meanwhile, Kim Jo Yi dons a fake beard, holding her head high in a confident and convincing manner. Their squad members look on in disbelief, appearing confused and even unimpressed by the pair’s disguises.
The drama’s production team commented, “In episode 5, Ra Yi Eon will begin his true battle to keep from losing what is precious to him. Viewers can expect to feel catharsis at how the investigation squad comically escapes from danger.”
The next episode of “Secret Royal Inspector & Joy” airs on November 22 at 10:30 p.m. KST.
