Poster, Teaser, and New Stills for Secret Royal Inspector with L, Kwon Nara, and Lee Yi Kyung

I do like the first drama poster, definitely different from the usual pose the leads against a backdrop layout and male lead L is giving off tons of eye acting with the raised and furrowed brow with haughty yangban aura. He’s the titular secret royal inspector aided by Kwon Nara playing a damo (police woman) and his loyal servant played by Lee Yi Kyung. The trio are tasked with rooting out corruption and public injustice which is always satisfying to watch when the baddies get their comeuppance. The drama drops in another month right before Christmas on December 21st.
