One side benefit of Moon Geun Young choosing the SBS corpse mystery thriller The Village (Achiara’s Secret) as her next drama is all the great flashbacks to one of her best movies in The Tale of Two Sisters. She wasn’t anywhere near being the lead, not with Im Soo Jung, Uhm Jung Ah and Kim Gab Soo around, but that was a true ensemble piece where every character was important ergo having the best actors cast was essential. I feel the same goes with The Village, where both the nice and and naughty at first blush are more than each seems, and secrets abound everyone that may or may not end up with people six feet under. That requires nuance and breadth, and I hope the entire cast delivers and has chemistry. The drama released two official posters recently, the more eyecatching one being Moon Geun Young with a hazy backdrop being pawed by corpse arms. Yikes! This drama better not have any zombies! I kid of course, the corpse hands are metaphorical representations of all the dead souls residing in The Village with secrets that will soon be unearthed with outside Moon Geun Young’s arrival to shake things up.
The second drama poster is less visually impactful but works with Moon Geun Young’s visceral sadness in her expression. I still think Yook Sung Jae seems like a kid playing cop, but then again that might actually be the description of his character as a rookie cop.
