2PM‘s Taecyeon is currently in discussions to join tvN‘s new fantasy-historical drama Tale of the Secret Royal Inspector and Jo Yi.
According to an exclusive report from Xportnews, Taecyeon is currently in discussions to accept the male lead role in tvN’s new fantasy-historical drama Tale of the Secret Royal Inspector and Jo Yi. If he confirms his role, he will join Jung So Min as the lead roles.
Tale of the Secret Royal Inspector and Jo Yi is a fantasy historical drama where secret inspectors will go undercover in an attempt to expose corruption within the kingdom. The drama will also tell the story of a lazy secret inspector and a fierce yet strange woman who join hands to try and dig up the truth.
The drama will be led by PD Yoo Jong Seon, who has worked on Descendants of the Sun, What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim, and Designated Survivor: 60 Days, and writer Lee Jae Yoon, who wrote for the movie Girl Cops.
Earlier in the year, it was reported that Jo Byung Gyu would be taking on the lead role in the drama. However, due to his alleged school violence scandal, his appearance is uncertain, and the drama is working to make sure they have a contingency plan for their lead role.
