New promos for sageuk mystery-comedy Secret Royal Inspector
A short teaser clip and a new still of Kwon Nara (Itaewon Class) have been revealed for upcoming drama New Secret Royal Investigator. Featuring L (a.k.a. Kim Myung-soo from Welcome), this upcoming KBS sageuk mystery-comedy is about the king’s personal task force that’s dedicated to eradicating the roots of corruption and resolving the citizenry’s concerns.
Kwon Nara plays a character named Hong Da-in, a gisaeng known for her stunning looks and intelligence. However, she’s actually a damo (Joseon’s equivalent to a female policeman) who uses the gisaeng disguise to infiltrate the nobles and gain information. While she’s in disguise, she meets L’s character and joins the Secret Royal Investigations Bureau.
The teaser begins with a girl and a boy running away in an open field from men with weapons. Copy onscreen flashes, “An age of confusion, Joseon.” Our first look at L is a brief cut of his fighting action, and the next copy flashes, “The turbulent era ends now.”
The next scene shows a palatial coup happening, and it’s juxtaposed by a similar fight amongst the common folk. Dramatic music plays as L leads a group of prisoners, with Kwon Nara and Lee Yi-kyung (Welcome to Waikiki 2) by his side. He holds up the token of the Secret Royal Investigations Bureau and smirks triumphantly. In his final voiceover, he says, “New Secret Royal Investigator appears.”
KBS Monday-Tuesday drama New Secret Royal Investigator will begin airing on December 21.
