Earlier this year, Jo Byeong Gyu was confirmed to have received an offer to star in the drama, though it is unclear whether he is still in talks for the project. Meanwhile, Jung So Min is currently in talks to play the female lead.

“Tale of the Secret Royal Inspector and Jo Yi” is described as a fantasy historical drama about a lazy secret royal inspector—whose job is to go undercover and expose corruption—teaming up with a fiery woman who is ahead of her time. Together, they set out on a grand scheme to uncover the truth.
