You’ve gotta hand it to Village—it sure doesn’t lack for twists. Some of them are more surprising than others (and some aren’t very surprising at all), but I respect the drama for stocking the show up to the brim with plot, secrets, and ever-changing directions. The characters continue to develop dimensions, and as we head... More »

So-yoon persists in digging and digging, despite the fact that nearly the whole town is determined to stonewall her. She may not be the shrewdest investigator around (her tactics can be aggravatingly clumsy), but persistence does pay off, and anger fuels boldness. Watching her in action feels a little like throwing eggs to chip away... More »

The delusion, it runs deep in this town. That certainly explains how the secrets have remained under wraps for so long—with this amount of willful ignorance going around, it’s no wonder it’s taken So-yoon this long to piece together the fragments of this mystery. Speaking of which, major secrets are revealed today, and they force... More »

And we’re back! Fyi, Village will have a few scheduling irregularities heading into its final weeks — yesterday’s episode was pre-empted so we’re only getting Episode 11 this week. Next week we’ll be on a regular schedule for Episodes 12 and 13, but the following week (Thanksgiving, for us Americans) will only air Episode 14... More »

Aw, our gullible, simple-minded petty officer is growing up, even if it’s in tiny little baby steps. Though I did find his naivety mildly frustrating in past episodes, the more he is challenged, the graver his demeanor becomes, and it’s a gratifying progression into adulthood. Though I wouldn’t mind a return of the cute every... More »

You can always count on Village to have a shocker for an ending, and this episode delivers. The show isn’t always shocking in the same way, which I appreciate; some episodes it’s gruesome, others chilling, or just a plain surprise, as in today. And it’s nice to see that a dead girl is still causing... More »

Our heroine turns a corner and happily, finally, exhibits some grit in the face of unpleasantness—nice So-yoon was rather boring to watch, since the extent of her activity seemed to be looking wide-eyed and accepting what everyone said. But shunned So-yoon is, gratifyingly, more proactive and assertive, and it’s a relief to see her pushing... More »

Ah, I feel like our characters are finally catching up to speed with the rest of us, now that they’re putting together answers to some of our biggest questions. Next up is figuring out the whys of it all, as some serious doubts crop up and loyalties come into question. The problem with this town... More »

As our heroine notes in this episode, just when one path seems to be going nowhere, a new one opens up. I still find the investigation plodding in regards to connecting dots quickly (in that they don’t), but at least there are a lot of dots being connected. What we lack in speed we at... More »

Some mysteries come into clearer focus, but happily for the story’s sake, those answers just serve to spawn more mysteries. The identity questions are rather obvious so I’d hoped the story wouldn’t get stuck figuring those out (since we’d figured them out already), and it’s a relief to move forward with the mystery, which hints...

More suspects emerge in the case, where increasingly, things are not as they seem on the surface. The harder our leads work to get to the truth of the matter, the harder opposing forces work to ensure the truth remains buried. On the upside, our leads are dogged and persistent, though they’ll need more than... More »
