A missing woman and a dead body in the Village

I’m glad that Village: Secret of Achiara is premiering next week, because I’m already dying of curiosity about this small town where everybody’s got secrets. A new teaser and character stills are out for the new SBS Wednesday-Thursday drama that stars Moon Geun-young as an outsider who moves to town seeking answers about her own past, and discovers a dead body instead.

In the latest teaser, all signs point to Jang Hee-jin as the likely victim: She’s an art teacher who was one of many mistresses to the town’s wealthiest man, who suddenly disappeared without a trace one day. But because the small town of Achiara is so insular and wary of outsiders, nobody cared or noticed that she vanished… or someone made sure of it.

Moon Geun-young plays a young woman who lost her parents and sister in a car accident when she was a child. She was the lone survivor, though the newspaper misreported the accident as having no survivors. She grows up abroad under the care of her grandmother, and upon Grandma’s death, she discovers a letter addressed to her about her family’s accident, from an unknown person in Achiara. Seeking answers, she moves to town to become the new English teacher at the local school, and happens to move into Jang Hee-jin’s apartment.

Yook Sung-jae plays a young police officer whose only dream since childhood was to be a righteous cop like a movie hero. He got the job, but quickly discovered that police work in Achiara was nothing like the movies. Which is why he’s over the moon when a dead body is discovered, and he makes it his mission to find out the truth. He finds it a bonus that this gives him more reason to talk to the pretty new English teacher in town, since she discovered the corpse. Cute.

The family with the most secrets in town is the richest, naturally. Jung Sung-mo is the most powerful man in Achiara, who made his fortune in steel. Ohn Joo-wan is the son who blames Dad for Mom’s death, and pities his new stepmother Shin Eun-kyung, the town’s very own Cinderella who was born to the poorest family in town and married into the wealthiest.

She’s only 12 years older than her stepson and was warm and kind when he needed a mother, and he becomes very protective of her. Of course, she’s also got a fortune to protect and clearly knows about her husband’s affairs, which makes her a prime suspect. Ohn Joo-wan returns from studying abroad to manage the local school (I guess his father really owns everything in town), and becomes caught between his desire to help Moon Geun-young, and to protect his family’s secrets.

In the teaser, Moon Geun-young finds that nobody wants to talk about the missing woman. Shin Eun-kyung seems inordinately interested in the dead body and whether it’s been identified, then says in voiceover, “No one in this town can be trusted.” A local tells Moon Geun-young, “Don’t worry, our village is safe.” Unjinx! Unjinx!

Village: Secret of Achiara premieres next Wednesday October 7.

Please tell me that there's gonna be a love line between Sungjae and Moon Geun Young, and that he'll actually get her. So my broken heart can mend a little from School 2015 </3

if you are gonna be begging for romance through the entire drama, please watch some romance comedy rom com instead. why people always have to ruin suspense/thriller ones where romance isnt the main story -_-

Even the our "village is safest" thing is kinda similar. But instead of bromance, hopefully we get an interesting romance although at some point Sung Jae will be one of the suspect.

Hmm, FYI as far as I know MGY never done any PS.
She looks exactly the same as years ago and if in some dramas her face looks round it's because chubbier cheeks. Whereas here she's becoming thinner. Watch Painter of The Wind or Cinderella's Sister to see if she has naturally round face or not.

You can also go way back to "The Last Empress". She was 14 back then and she still look the same but thinner.

Yeah, The Last Empress/Empress Myeongseong or Autumn In My Heart. She looks the same back then and now.

MGY never done any PS, (enhancing perhaps)

When she gained/loose weight it shows thru her cheeks

She's gained little pounds in Alice CheomChamDong and when guested in RM back then, that's when she received many negative bashing from knetizen how round is her face, not suited in camera, etc..

When she in her skinny weight Cinderella's Sister, knetizen is actually the one critic her too for being too skinny how her leg is like chopsticks, blah..

You should not be bother so much about her face being from round to pointy. Even it is true she has got some job done on her face, she still look as MGY that everyone knows.

I am not supporting PS, but in SK it is not something weird. I am getting sick for ppl who keeps pointing out about the change of face for some actress. Sometimes the difference is minor, not that major. Unless, if she is MGY but now she has a face of Song Hye Kyo, then it is worth to be shocked.

That can happen with too much weight loss (MGY seems pale and frail).

Awful hair and makeup for SEK.

Hmmm - maybe Jang Hee-jin's career will finally start to take off.

1st knew about her all the way back on X-Man and since then, she's done some film and dramas - but mostly secondary supporting roles.

Sounds like the plot of an old-fashioned American Western. With the petite schoolmarm as the lead instead of wandering cowpoke Randolph Scott or Kirk Douglas.

I suspect the wealthiest man has anything to do with the murder and the missing person.
Who knows...
It could be intriguing like God's Gift and I really hope this drama is good and well-received for the sake of Moon Geun Young. She's due for a good drama!

She has a baby face which is too baby face that can be a good and bad thing. Good thing she will always look young and like a little sister :)

She didnt change that much, maybe she got a bit thinner from the past. I am not sure. I hope she can be given more role as a mature woman in the future.

For that scene in the rain, I read that MGY spent a good 5-6 hours under pouring hoses. I hope all her hard work will pay off. Please be a good drama.
