Uncle Samsik actress Jin Ki Joo has been offered the lead role in MBC's upcoming drama Undercover High School. It was previously reported that actor Seo Kang Joon (Cheese in the TrapAre You Human Too?) is positively reviewing the offer to be cast as the male lead in the same K-drama.  

Undercover High School is a delightful action-comedy about a man who goes undercover as a high school student while hiding his identity as a National Intelligence Service (NIS) agent. During his time as an undercover agent at the school, he makes new friends, empathizes with them, and grows. The script is penned by Im Young Bin, the writer of Bad Prosecutor 

Actress Jin Ki Joo has been offered the role of Oh Soo Ah, a contract teacher at Byeongmun High School and the homeroom teacher of Jung Hae Sung (role offered to Seo Kang Joon), who goes undercover as a high school student.  

Undercover High School is confirmed to air on MBC and is scheduled for broadcast early next year.
