Watch: 2PM’s Taecyeon, Kim Hye Yoon, And More Never Have A Dull Moment On The Set Of “Secret Royal Inspector & Joy”
“Secret Royal Inspector & Joy” has released a behind-the-scenes clip for episodes one and two!
tvN’s “Secret Royal Inspector & Joy” is a historical comedy drama starring 2PM’s Taecyeon as Ra Yi Eon, a young gourmand who is appointed a secret royal inspector against his will. Kim Hye Yoon co-stars as Kim Jo Yi, a divorced woman searching for happiness who ends up joining forces with him as he travels undercover to local provinces to uncover corruption.
At the start of the clip, Taecyeon is excitedly preparing to make dumplings. He pretends to ask his servant Goo Pal (Park Gang Sub) for ingredients but Park Gang Sub casually responds, “They’re right there.” Taecyeon pretends to scold him and tries again, only for Park Gang Sub to look the other way, making Taecyeon sadly comment, “Now he’s ignoring me.”
They begin filming and Taecyeon starts chopping green onions when Park Gang Sub bursts into laughter at how nonchalantly Taecyeon swiped the onion ends off the cutting board. When asked if he cooks regularly, Taecyeon answers, “I enjoy it,” showing off his knife skills in later takes.
Although they agree to film seriously, Taecyeon suggests another funny idea and the director replies, “That’s allowed.” The director then jokingly adds, “What’s the standard, you ask? It’s my choice.”
Later, Kim Hye Yoon is rehearsing her lines with Nam Mi Jung when the latter comments, “Since you have the jigae [A traditional Korean A-frame carrier], it’s so pretty. You don’t look pitiful, you look valiant.” Kim Hye Yoon brightly responds, “Right! It gives me more strength.”
Taecyeon and his two servants Park Gang Sub and Min Jin Woong show off their tight friendship while filming together at night as they joke around and poke fun at each other. Taecyeon and Min Jin Woong start worrying over Park Gang Sub as Taecyeon looks over at the camera then comments, “Goo Pal, you can’t get hurt. We’re definitely not saying this because they’re filming the making-of.” Min Jin Woong pretends to just notice the camera and Park Gang Sub comments, “Don’t be fooled!”
The three continue the fun as they start filming with Kim Hye Yoon. She rehearses the scene where she smacks them all on the head as Min Jin Woong jokingly remarks, “Should I be this scared?”
In the next scene, Kim Hye Yoon must run into the water as she discovers the death of Bo Ri (Chae Won Bin). After filming the emotional scene, Chae Won Bin comments, “Even though I was dead, I almost cried,” making a teary-eyed Kim Hye Yoon laugh.
The final scene features Kim Hye Yoon’s long-awaited divorce from No Chu Han (Joo Jin Soo). They immerse so well into their roles that even during rehearsals, they hilariously bicker as they forget to break out of character. As Kim Hye Yoon takes the final document from Taecyeon, the director asks, “Did you take it with one hand?” She nods with a frown and adorably responds, “How dare I.”
