Secrets burned and buried in The Village

Ooh, it’s eerie. I like eerie. SBS’s The Village: Secret of Achiara has released its first teaser, and it’s shrouded in mystery and tension, with a lot of furtive looks by Moon Geun-young in the lead role.

It starts off boldly, with Moon burning a newspaper article that describes the death of a family in a car crash, telling us, “Twenty-three years ago, I died.” What the what now? We knew that there’d be a dead body turning up in the town of Achiara, and that Moon would be involved in uncovering the story behind it, but it’s even better if she’s somehow wrapped up in the greater intrigue too.

It may be a fair guess to suppose that Moon somehow ended up taking on the identity of the other girl in the photograph, which is also burned—is she also the fleeting figure in the background? Is she dead or alive? What happened all those years ago, and given that our heroine is so curious to figure it out, why doesn’t she know already if she’s connected to it?

Moon’s character reportedly learns something confusing and shocking before coming to Achiara, and is spurred to uncover each of the secrets hidden in the village. The teaser ends as Moon says, “You and I, called to this place. Village: Secret of Achiara.”

The Village: Secret of Achiara follows Yong-pal as SBS’s next Wednesday-Thursday drama.

I believe she has a lazy eye. Personally I think it's pretty cool/distinctive, though I'm am surprised they used that last photo as the poster shot.

Is it kind of a common thing in Korea? Some are more obvious than others but I noticed it in a lot of actors especially when they try to focus on an object or look side ways.

A lazy eye is a medical condition which is poor vision in one eye.

Correct, a lazy eye is poor vision in one eye which you cannot tell just by looking at a person. What Muenchabench probably is talking about is a turn / squint / cross eye which she doesn't have. You can tell by the light reflection, just the angle of photo means more of the skin of the nose covers the white part of the eye.

It's called a pseudostrabismus / pseudosquint.

She has lovely cross eyes. It's more common than you think. MGY's are more noticeable because she has big eyes.

Actually, those from asian descent tend to have - what looks like - an "eye turn" or "lazy eye" (though lazy eyes can occur without an actual turning of the eye but that's another story) even though they may in fact have "straight" eyes. The reason is that the single monolid structure and the folds in the corners of the eye (called epicanthal folds) aren't as distinctive as those who are non-asian...in this case, I think that's the main issue (and if she's had any eyelid plastic surgery done, it's probably messed with it more)

A lazy eye - by definition - is when there is significantly poor vision in the bad eye and the "good" eye takes over functioning. Sometimes the eye can be "turned" and other times, the eye looks perfectly fine, but in fact, there is loss of vision occurring (which is why eye exams are so important in children).

That is your science lesson for the day. Btw, I'm an optometrist, hence all the technical talk.

Hum what? Cinderella sister she killed it as bitchy eunjo, and pissed off many people (this shows how good she was at playing eunjo lmao)

CS was melo and not romantic comedy like most wished, but it was a good drama, it dragged but it was good and also got good ratings.

Also her movies were also good choices.

On another note, where be her flawless, long, voluptuous Cinderella's sister hair? I would have preferred that look than short hair :(

She just cut her long hair about a week ago for this drama...

But IMO her short hair gives off mature, older vibe like the one in Cinderella's Sister, I love her short hair there..

Looks like the title "The Village: Secret of Achiara" was created for the games Professeur Layton LoL
This drama will surely be interesting, I'm still disappointed that Kim Jae Wook rejected the role, I so wanted to see him in a drama ><
I really want him to be the lead in his next project, he deserves it greatly

Well, SBS is fast!
Few days ago script reading, then photoshoot and teaser filming, then released the teaser...
And they're currently filming since 2 days ago..
Surely they would shoot as much as possible before air date, right? Considering Yongpal is just few weeks away from finale.

MGY had long and purple hair, so she cut if off for this drama. You know cop/investigators in kdrama land always have their hair short. Imo MGY looks older with this short hair and I like.

wish she'd kept her longer hair, but i agree it does age her up, which is a good thing really. i hope she's not a candy type, and i hope it's super creepy. basically a lot of hopes!
