“A seemingly peaceful village and its inhabitants are thrown into chaos with the sudden discovery of a corpse.”
Starting from this October until the end of November, ONE HD brings in the murder-mystery-thriller K-drama – “The Village” aka “Achiara’s Secret” (마을-아치아라의 비밀) that spells the secret of the long-buried secrets in a village named Achiara.
Han So Yoon (played by Moon Guen-young), who lost her parents and sister in a car accident when she was a child. She was the lone survivor, through the newspaper misreported the accident as having no survivors.
She grew up abroad under the care of her grandmother and upon Grandma’s death, she discovers a letter addressed to her about the accident, from an unknown person in Achiara. Seeking answers, she moves to town to become the new English teacher at the local school.
Park Woo Jae (played by BTOB’s Yook Sung-jae), is 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.
As the suspicions continue to mount, will the villagers be able to get to the bottom of the mystery and still come out unscathed?
“The Village” airs with localised subtitles within 24 hours of its Korean telecast via ONE HD (Astro B yond Ch 393) every Thursday and Friday at 8:55pm.
