Now that the casting decisions for upcoming SBS Wed-Thurs drama The Village has been digested after some time, it’s more constructive to move on to evaluating the promos and teasers trickling out from the network. Yongpal has been confirmed for a 2-episode extension to end at 18 episodes total, giving The Village another week to prep which is never a bad thing. I’m kinda finding it strangely cute that Kim Tae Hee‘s character in Yongpal just got a post-coma haircut that’s just like a less wavy version of the short bob that Moon Geun Young is sporting in The Village. It’s super cute on both ladies, making me wonder if that’ll be a new in-thing.
On a less superficial note, it’s nice that Moon Geun Young finally gets a cute hairstyle in a modern drama but it’s not going to matter much since in the latest teaser there is danger and secrets aplenty but I don’t see any romance potential anywhere. That’s a good thing for anyone worried about her getting less experienced and younger Yook Sung Jae as her male lead, and likely even better news for those wanting to watch a mystery thriller without getting distracted by awkwardly inserted romance breaks. Check out the second promo teaser for glimpses at the full cast and plenty of what’s going on quick edit appetizers.
