A woman on a mission
From mistress to a woman you can’t mess around, Han So Hee suits up to an unlikely role. Challenging a genre which is usually male dominated, she sets forth to prove her grit as an actress. This year, Han drew praises for her performance in the hit series, The World of the Married.
For her role in Undercover, she tackles the strong character of Yun Ji-u, who enters a criminal syndicate for her goal to avenge her father who died under suspicious circumstances. She becomes the organization’s undercover agent in the police force and begins delving into the secret behind her father’s death.

Portraying Choi Mu-jin is actor Park Hee Soon, a bigwig in Dongcheon, the country’s leading drug cartel. An unfathomable character, he took Ji-u under his wings, turning her to an undercover agent.
