More moody mystery in second teaser for Village: Secret of Achiara

The second teaser has been released for SBS’s Village: Secret of Achiara, which continues the ominous, eerie vibe of the drama’s first teaser. There’s also one news still of series lead Moon Geun-young, above, sporting a fresh haircut for her character, an English language teacher at a middle school in the town of Achiara.

Moon’s character is new to Achiara, having previously lived in Canada, and isn’t there long when the sleepy town gets a jolt: On her very first day on the job, a long-buried corpse comes to light, and she comes to have a large role in chasing the mystery to get at the truth. From the first teaser, the show seems to hint that she’s got ties to the village that go back to her childhood, and that there’s some kind of buried secret in her own past, but it doesn’t appear she’s aware of the connections yet. That’s just one more mystery she’ll have to unravel.

This new teaser begins with an explanation of the name Achiara, which means “small pond.” A chair crashes through a window, a woman tumbles down a steep hill, a child is kidnapped, a woman screams in the rain. We get brief glimpses of the main players in the story—Shim Eun-kyung, Yook Sung-jae, Ohn Joo-wan, Jang Hee-jin—and then Moon Geun-young says, “Achiara. I think somebody called me here.”

I like the air of suspense and tension, where fear is invoked more by what is withheld than what is shown. First off, it seems moodier that way, more careful and deliberate. Spookier, too, since giving your imagination room to wander and fill in the blanks can often yield much darker results than just showing you scary things. So far, the teasers look promising, hinting at lots of secrets and mysteries underneath the placid surface—everybody’s a suspect, and nobody’s to be trusted.

Village: Secret of Achiara takes over Yong-pal’s Wednesday-Thursday timeslot on SBS, premiering on October 7.

I am already trying to look for clues just from the pictures.
I will probably drive myself nuts to figure it out as fast as I can when it starts, but that is the fun.

I can't wait, even if I still don't understand why an English teacher is the main character.

...did you not look at the last teaser, or are you just unable to understand? It's heavily implied that she has ties to Achiara.

On her first day, she finds a body, and she decides to investigate with Yook Sung-jae's character, who is a cop. It was never stated that she was QUALIFIED to investigate, it's just stated that she IS investigating. Plus, she probably already knows about one of the village's dirty secrets.

It would be fascinating if one of these drama characters who lived outside of Korea most of their lives actually showed some signs of it. Like having trouble with manners, food, forms of address, taboos, understanding the road signs. It would make for some fun scenes.

This looks good! And refreshing...dramaland is in dire need of something new and interesting, so I'll tune in for sheer interest even though I'm not a big fan of Moon Geun Young.

I love how they've styled Moonie here, although she has a baby face they've really given her the appeal of looking like an actual English teacher instead of looking like a kid pretending to be one. Yook Sung Jae in police uniform reminds me of Im Joo Hwan from Oh my ghostesss gahhh.

Thanks for the stills as well, I didn't see the girl in white dress within the teaser, it seems the show is suggesting there's multiple culprits involved possibly.

Not a fan of Moonie's hair. Unattractive style, but I'm a fan of her acting although some of her last few dramas haven't been that great. Glad to see her back. Love a good mystery.

Personal preferences, but totally agree on acting. As long as they don't style her like they did in that Mary drama I'll be super happy.

The premise sounds good, hopefully it will not turn out to become some cliche story. I love Yong Pal, but at the same time i cant wait for this drama though. Not a fan of Moon Geun Young, so this is among the drama that i intend to watch not because of the casts, but more on story.

Ohn Joo Wan and that hair tho. I had to look twice to recognize him lol. Did he and Sung Jae talk about a hair color switch? Hehe.

Anyways, I can't wait for Yongpal to end(no offense). Will watch it for the leads while hoping the story fills the hole in my heart for Crime Scene. T.T

Why did they change OJW hair to blond?! I mean now he looks more like an idol in the drama rather than someone who ran a company. Seriously!! Sungjae looks good as a young cop though. I hope he performs well and exceed all expectations. Goodluck!!

Whatever hairstyle, I feel bad that Moonie had to cut her hair for the role. Fingers crossed for this show to turn out good. (I might be in the minority but I loved her hobo hair in Mary Stayed Out All Night. And her clothes too. Totally odd and cool.)
