Kim Myung Soo (Infinite’s L) has confirmed his appearance on the upcoming KBS2 historical drama, “Secret Royal Inspector” (literal translation).
“Secret Royal Inspector” is set in the backdrop of the late Joseon Dynasty. Myung Soo plays the role as the Office of Special Advisor’s Junior Sixth Counselor, Sung Yi Kyeom.
Kim Myung Soo will be playing the role of a busuchan (a type of public official) in the Hongmungwan, the Office of Special Advisors, which was the Joseon Dynasty’s administrative and research agency.
Sung Yi Kyum lives only for the moment and has no ambitions for his future. He won first place in the civil service examination, but is caught gambling and is punished by being forced into the position of secret royal inspector. The drama will follow his adventures as he solves various problems of the Joseon people in his new role.
Through his agency, Myung Soo said, “I feel happy but also nervous to be taking on the title role in historical drama “Secret Royal Inspector.” In particular, I am looking forward to challenging myself with the role of a charismatic secret agent such as the modern version of Kingsman. I will do my best to show you good acting.”
Kwon Nara will be playing the role of Hong Da In, a beautiful and spirited gisaeng who is actually a damo (a woman who works for a Joseon government office) working undercover. She teams up with Sung Yi Kyum (Kim Myung Soo’s character) when he is appointed the secret royal inspector.
Lee Yi Kyung will be playing the role of Park Choon Sam, Sung Yi Kyum’s servant. He is a warmhearted and lovable character who talks and cries a lot but also has a lot of cunning.
Lee Tae Hwan will be playing the role of Sung Yi Bum, Sung Yi Kyum’s half-brother. His father was yangban (an aristocrat) and his mother was a servant, and the awkward situation of his birth puts him in conflict with his brother Sung Yi Kyum.
