Genre: Historical, Mystery, Comedy, Drama

Writer: Lee Jae Yoon

Network: tvN

Official Websitehttp://program.tving.com/tvn/inspectorjoy

Synopsis: 

“The Secret Royal Inspector and Jo Yi” (literal title) is a historical comedy investigation drama 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.

 

Kim Hye Yoon takes on the role of Kim Jo Yi, a unconventional woman of the Joseon era who thinks that getting divorced isn’t a big deal. Three years ago, she got married with a gambling addict and mama’s boy, and needless to say, she led a rocky married life. She finally divorces the man after several complications, only to be met with another obstacle: the appearance of a secret royal inspector. The moment it seemed like her dream to begin a new life was crushed, her life was actually starting anew.

 

Together, the unmotivated secret royal inspector Ra Yi Yeon and the reckless divorced woman Kim Jo Yi will embark on a journey to investigate and defeat corrupt politicians. The fact that the drama features a divorced female character who dismisses the Joseon era idea that a wife must serve her husband draws attention for its novelty.
