Based of the BBC series of the same name, Undercover depicts the story of Han Jung Hyun (Ji Jin Hee), who has been hiding his identity for a long time, and Choi Yeon Soo (Kim Hyun Joo), a civil-rights attorney who became the first head of the Senior Civil Servant Corruption Investigations Unit for justice. The two will face a massive force that holds and shakes the entire country in the name of benefits. Attention is focusing on their fierce battle to protect their love and justice.

Ji Jin Hee will play Han Jung Hyun, an agent at the Agency for National Security Planning (ANSP), who has been hiding his identity for a long time. Having been selected to join the ANSP while attending the police academy, he was on a roll with his extraordinary agility and guts until he met Choi Yeon Soo during a top-secret mission. Wanting to be a part of her life, he drops everything and starts living under a false identity. However, when his wife Choi Yeon Soo was nominated for the first head of the Senior Civil Servant Corruption Investigations Unit, his life covered with secrets is caught up in an uncontrollable whirlwind.
Kim Hyun Joo will lead the play by playing Choi Yeon Soo, a civil-rights attorney who has lived for justice and truth.
