The main poster released predicts the desperate and heartbreaking story of Jeong-hyeon, who is hiding under a fake identity, and Yeon-soo whose life crumbles upon knowing the shocking truth behind her husband’s real identity. It also shows their intertwined fates as they face an inevitable consequence. Behind the power struggle and the hidden truth in the story lies Jeong-hyeon’s gruesome and lonely fight for himself and his family, as well as Yeon-soo’s reality of coming face-to-face with a husband she might have never known all these years. Side by side in the posters are Ji Jin-hee and Kim Hyun-joo with the stars who will play their younger counterparts, Yeon Woo-jin and Han Sun-hwa, respectively. Their struggle to protect those who are precious to them amid the uncontrollable crises and upheavals in their marriage and duties as citizens raise the viewers’ curiosity.

Undercover will premiere on April 23 and will air on JTBC every Friday and Saturday at 11 p.m. KST, taking over the time slot currently occupied by Beyond Evil.
