TV Review: Secret Royal Inspector and Joy (2021) (Period Drama)

Secret Royal Inspector and Joy (어사와 조이)
16 episodes
Ok Taec-yeon, Kim Hye-yoon
Period Drama

Murder, conspiracy and corruption in Joseon pulls a food-loving secret government agent and a forward-thinking divorcee into an unlikely partnership. (Netflix Synopsis)

Secret Royal Inspector and Joy was a gripping and delightful series that was the usual K-drama blend of humour, action and emotion, with energetic and fun-filled performances from the cast and an enjoyable and interesting plot. It doesn't take its historical setting completely seriously though, with the odd anachronism slipping in here and there. But that was okay and, as a Korean-language learner, was quite fun to spot. I would give this series 4.5 stars, which I will round up to a five.
