South Korea — In Secret Royal Inspector & Joy, Taecyeon of 2PM passionately kisses Kim Hye Yoon.

Secret Royal Inspector & Joy is a historical comedy-drama featuring Taecyeon from 2PM as Ra Yi Eon, a young gourmand who is appointed a secret royal inspector (a government officer who travels covertly to home districts to investigate corruption) against his will.

Kim Hye Yoon plays Kim Jo Yi, a divorced girl looking for happiness who joins forces with him to investigate and combat corruption.

Spoiler Alert!

Ra Yi Eon finds his life in jeopardy after slipping into the enemies’ trap in the previous episode of Secret Royal Inspector & Joy. After striking a deal with the king, Park Seung (Jung Bo Suk) made a triumphant return as a judge.

Yi Eon was shocked to learn that everything he’d gone through since becoming a secret royal inspector—beginning with his dispatch to Chungcheong Province—had all been part of Park Seung’s master plan.
