“Unmasked” (originally entitled “Trigger”) is an office comedy drama that depicts the first Investigative Journalism Bureau of a broadcasting company in Seoul, South Korea.

The show was one of the most anticipated works of the year, receiving high tension from fans after announcing the casting of seasoned actors Kim Hye Soo and Jung Sung Il.

In the series, the two work together for the very first time. Both stars dominated the Hallyu scene after their performances in Netflix’s “Juvenile Justice” and “The Glory,” respectively.

Kim Hye Soo transforms into Oh So Ryong, a passionate journalist who leads the investigative reporting program. She pursues the truth to achieve justice.

She takes on any cases that even the prosecution and the police can’t solve. Meanwhile, Jung Sung Il portrays Han Do, a dedicated producing director who lacks social skills.

The duo is joined by Joo Jong Hyuk as Kang Ki Ho, the youngest producing director in the team. He showed off his top-notch skills as a villain in “Extraordinary Attorney Woo” in 2022.
