Originally this didn't look super interesting to me, I love sageuks but I thought it was basically just "Ye Olde Joseon Cop," but since learning more about it, my interest has been piqued! It looks like it'll have more romance and humor than I originally expected. And since I first heard of it I watched Meow The Secret Boy and loved Kim Myung Soo in it, and Lee Yi Kyung was very funny in Go Back Couple, and the trailer looked good, so here I am looking forward to it.

Kim Myung Soo And Kwon Nara Freeze During Unexpected Encounter In “Royal Secret Agent” Drama Preview Dec 22, 2

Kim Myung Soo Steps Up To Defend Kwon Nara In “Royal Secret Agent” Drama Preview Jan 5, 2021

Spoiler

Watch: Kim Myung Soo, Kwon Nara, And Lee Yi Kyung Are Interviewed As Their Characters In Upcoming Historical Drama

 

KBS’s upcoming drama “Secret Royal Inspector” (literal title) has released a series of interview teasers with the main characters!

 

“Secret Royal Inspector” is a comic mystery drama set in the Joseon dynasty that stars Kim Myung Soo as Sung Yi Kyum, a secret royal inspector who travels undercover to the provinces in order to hear the stories of the people, uncover corruption, and deliver justice.

 

Kwon Nara co-stars as Hong Da In, a damo (a woman who works for a Joseon government office) who goes undercover as a gisaeng (a courtesan trained in music and the arts). Lee Yi Kyung rounds out the main cast as Park Choon Sam, Sung Yi Kyum’s servant and right-hand man.

 

Each of the new teasers takes place with the actors in character as their roles from the drama. Asked about the difficulties of being a secret royal inspector, Sung Yi Kyum says magnificently, “There isn’t much to it. You must be willing to put your life on the line.” As part of his job, he goes undercover by disguising himself in various ways, including as a woman. After his elegant “interview” is over, Sung Yi Kyum reveals his true self when he gets drunk and almost spills his secret and gambles the night away instead of doing his job, much to Hong Da In and Park Choon Sam’s exasperation.

 

In her interview, Hong Da In is proud of her work as a damo, and when asked if it is a hard job working with the secret royal inspector, she responds, “I’ve been doing martial arts since I was a girl. I can take care of myself.” But when asked how her teamwork is with the inspector, her face darkens and she remembers a scene in which she had to break Sung Yi Kyum out of jail and he complained, “It would be done faster if I was with Choon Sam.”

 

In his interview, Park Choon Sam shares wistfully his dream of getting special treatment as part of his work with the secret royal inspector. In reality, he gets beaten up by guards and is forced to take care of a baby, do the laundry, and cook the meals. At the end, he complains, “I wanted to get out of this tedious slave life and live a new life for a change.”

 

“Secret Royal Inspector” premieres on December 21 at 9:30 p.m. KST.

Kim Myung Soo Describes His New Character In Upcoming Historical Drama

 

Kim Myung Soo talked about his new character Sung Yi Kyum in upcoming KBS drama “Secret Royal Inspector” (literal title).

 

“Secret Royal Inspector” is a comic mystery drama set in the Joseon dynasty that stars Kim Myung Soo as Sung Yi Kyum, a secret royal inspector who travels undercover to the provinces in order to hear the stories of the people, uncover corruption, and deliver justice.

 

Sung Yi Kyum is rookie secret royal inspector who used to live an exciting double life as a public official and a gambler. He is both passionate and clumsy, and he will do whatever it takes to catch corrupt government officials and bring justice to the people.

 

Kim Myung Soo talked about how he’s becoming more and more like Sung Yi Kyum. He shared, “I am making an effort to understand my character and faithfully portray him. When I wear hanbok (traditional Korean clothes) now, I automatically hold my hands behind my back, and I focus on my duties. Those kinds of characteristics resemble my character, and it makes me realize, ‘Wow, I have become Sung Yi Kyum.'”

Kim Myung Soo summed up Sung Yi Kyum in three words: pure, compassionate, and just. These are the character traits that will help Sung Yi Kyum achieve peace and justice while experiencing amazing growth on his journey as a secret royal inspector.

Kwon Nara Goes Undercover As A Man While Teaming Up With Kim Myung Soo For Justice In Upcoming Drama

 

KBS 2TV’s upcoming drama “Secret Royal Inspector” (literal title) has shared a glimpse of Kwon Nara in her starring role!

Set in the Joseon dynasty, “Secret Royal Inspector” is a comic mystery drama starring Kim Myung Soo as Sung Yi Kyum, a secret royal inspector who travels undercover to provinces in order to hear the stories of the people, uncover corruption, and deliver justice. Lee Yi Kyung will play the role of Park Choon Sam, Sung Yi Kyum’s trusty servant and right-hand man.

 

Kwon Nara will be starring in the drama as Hong Da In, a beautiful damo (a woman who works for a Joseon government office) who boasts a diverse array of talents including writing, painting, dancing, and martial arts. While undercover as a gisaeng (a courtesan trained in music and the arts), she crosses paths with Sung Yi Kyum, and the two eventually join forces to fight for justice together.

 

In newly released stills from the upcoming drama, Hong Da In disguises herself as a man to carry out a mission. The twinkle in her eye hints at the character’s pluck and determination, and as a damo braver than most men, Hong Da In isn’t afraid to throw herself in harm’s way if a mission calls for it.

 

Describing the similarities between her character and her real-life personality, Kwon Nara remarked, “I think we’re similar in the way that both of us are typically cheerful and mischievous, but when we get serious about something, we become entirely serious.” She added, “I’d like to become as courageous and ballsy as Da In is.”

Scriptwriters Park Sung Hoon and Kang Min Seo revealed that they have a special affection for Sung Yi Bum’s character.

 

They shared, “He’s a figure who runs into limitations in the world due to his status as a son born from a male aristocrat and a woman of lower class, but he materializes justice in his own way.” They continued, “Although he was an innocent character in the past, he becomes fierce and sharp after facing ups and downs in life. It would be great if viewers watch out carefully for him since he’s a figure with a huge twist.”

Kim Myung Soo, Lee Yi Kyung, And Kwon Nara Form A Chaotic Trio Of Spies In Upcoming Drama

 

KBS 2TV’s upcoming drama “Secret Royal Inspector” (literal title) has shared a new glimpse of the chemistry between its three leads!

 

Set in the Joseon dynasty, “Secret Royal Inspector” is a comic mystery drama starring Kim Myung Soo as Sung Yi Kyum, a secret royal inspector who travels undercover to provinces in order to hear the stories of the people, uncover corruption, and deliver justice. Lee Yi Kyung will play the role of Park Choon Sam, Sung Yi Kyum’s trusty servant and right-hand man.

 

Kwon Nara will star in the drama as Hong Da In, a damo (a woman who works for a Joseon government office) who goes undercover as a gisaeng (a courtesan trained in music and the arts). While in disguise as a gisaeng, she ends up crossing paths with Sung Yi Kyum, and they secretly join forces in a thrilling battle for justice.

 

Although Sung Yi Kyum and Hong Da In are amusingly unable to stop bickering, once the two “secret agents” (and Park Choon Sam) team up, they become a force to be reckoned with. In newly released stills from the upcoming drama, the trio seems to be on a stakeout, furtively hiding behind some rocks with worried expressions as they keep a close eye on something in the distance. Hong Da In is also noticeably in disguise as man, further piquing viewers’ curiosity about the nature of the team’s secret mission.

Lee Yi Kyung Is A Trusted And Lovable Sidekick In Upcoming Historical Drama With Kim Myung Soo And Kwon Nara

 

KBS’s upcoming drama “Secret Royal Inspector” (literal translation) has released new stills of Lee Yi Kyung in character.

 

“Secret Royal Inspector” is a comic mystery drama set in the Joseon dynasty that stars Kim Myung Soo as Sung Yi Kyum, a secret royal inspector who travels undercover to the provinces in order to hear the stories of the people, uncover corruption, and deliver justice.

 

Kwon Nara co-stars as a damo (a woman who works for a Joseon government office) working undercover as a gisaeng (a courtesan trained in music and the arts). Lee Yi Kyung rounds out the main cast as Park Choon Sam, Sung Yi Kyum’s servant and right-hand man.

 

When Sung Yi Kyum is suddenly appointed secret royal inspector, Park Choon Sam’s life is upended right alongside his master’s. Park Choon Sam’s eagerness and hot temper can sometimes overtake his abilities, leading him to make clumsy mistakes, but he has an innocent charm that gets him out of trouble and a surprising turn for deduction that makes him a valuable addition to the secret royal inspector’s team.

 

The new stills show three sides of Park Choon Sam’s character: his warm, lovable and energetic side; his charismatic, determined side; and his comedic side. Lee Yi Kyung chose three keywords to describe his character: affection, loyalty, and bluster. The actor said, “I am working hard on his gaze, gestures, and pattern of speech so that even when he does something bad, you can’t help but love him and think he’s cute.”

Like Choon Sam, he gets along well with other people. He took to his character like a fish takes to water, so viewers can look forward to his comedic acting.”

The clip begins with Kim Myung Soo posing charismatically for his character poster. After introducing himself to the camera, he reveals that the chemistry between the main cast is so tight that the filming set is always filled with laughter. He continues, “The other two cast members are so comfortable to be around that it makes me wonder how such people could even exist. We’re creating a really enjoyable set.”

 

Next, Lee Yi Kyung takes the camera to film a close-up of Kim Myung Soo, who is focused on posing for his photo shoot. Kwon Nara also jokes back and forth with Lee Yi Kyung and covers the camera lens after he promises to reveal her true identity.

Lee Yi Kyung introduces his role and shows off his straw shoes, which indicate his status as a servant. He also thanks Kim Myung Soo’s character Sung Yi Kyum for providing him with such nice clothes. Lee Yi Kyung surmises that viewers will be able to clearly see the chemistry between the main cast as they have grown so close to one another. He continues, “We’re so close that we even joke around off set as well. I’ll be thankful if you look forward to the reason why I’ve talked so much about this.”

 

The trio then get ready to take photos for the main poster. As they sit around the table, Lee Yi Kyung jokes, “Oh, did the lighting director arrive? Why is only Kwon Nara so bright?” Kwon Nara plays along, asking, “Where is the lighting director? Where are you?” When they are asked to strike a comedic pose, Kwon Nara places her foot on Kim Myung Soo’s leg, making him laugh.

 

The group finishes up by taking additional character posters in mysterious dark lighting followed by another group photo behind a bale of straw. Lee Yi Kyung playfully sticks his head between the two bales, which makes the staff burst into surprised laughter. The video comes to an end as the trio finish up their photo shoot and wave enthusiastically to the camera.

Set in the Joseon dynasty, “Secret Royal Inspector” is a comic mystery drama starring Kim Myung Soo as Sung Yi Kyum, a secret royal inspector who travels undercover to provinces in order to hear the stories of the people, uncover corruption, and deliver justice. Lee Yi Kyung will play the role of Park Choon Sam, Sung Yi Kyum’s trusty servant and right-hand man, while Kwon Nara will star as Hong Da In, a damo (a woman who works for a Joseon government office) who goes undercover as a gisaeng (a courtesan trained in music and the arts).

 

In the newly released stills from the upcoming drama, the tension between Sung Yi Kyum and his half-brother Sung Yi Bum (played by Lee Tae Hwan) is palpable as they find themselves caught up in a love triangle with Kang Soon Ae (played by Jo Soo Min) at its center.

 

Although Sung Yi Kyum and Sung Yi Bum have been extremely close since childhood, they ultimately wind up leading very different lives due to the harsh realities of the Joseon era. Despite sharing the same father, Sung Yi Bum cannot enter the same level of society as his half-brother Sung Yi Kyum due to his status as an illegitimate child. While Sung Yi Kyum becomes a secret royal inspector, Sung Yi Bum walks a starkly different path as the leader of a group of bandits.

 

However, the two half-brothers face another wrinkle in their relationship in the form of Kang Soon Ae, Sung Yi Kyum’s first love. As the three characters become entangled in a complicated love triangle, Sung Yi Kyum and Sung Yi Bum find their brotherhood being tested, and their relationship begins to change in unexpected ways.
