In the clip, Taecyeon and Kim dramatically turn towards the camera in slow motion as a crowd of villagers carrying torches run towards an unseen force. Inspector Joy is currently set to premiere sometime this November.
Inspector Joy will star Taecyeon as Ra Yi-eon, a young cook who unwittingly finds himself a job as secret royal inspector – a government official who goes undercover to expose corruption. He soon teams up with Kim Jo-yo (played by Kim Hye-yoon), as a recently divorced woman who’s ready to start a new phase in her life.
Inspector Joy will be directed by Yoo Jong-sun, known for his work on Designated Survivor: 60 Days and What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim, and written by Lee Jae-yoon, who previously helmed The Undateables.
Earlier this year, Taecyeon co-starred in the popular crime drama series Vincenzo. The series was led by Song Joong-ki, in his first lead TV tole in two years since Arthdal Chronicles, as well as Jeon Yeo-been.
In other 2PM news, member Chansung has been cast in the upcoming romance drama series Show Window: The Queen’s House, alongside Jeon So-min. The show is scheduled to premiere this November and will run for 16 episodes, though other details about the drama are scarce at the moment.
