Yet another K Drama that left me emotional. Personally, majority of the K Dramas I have watched so far hit me right in the feels. These guys know how to twist the knife.
A village holds spirits of missing, deceased people. A search to find the missing bodies and discover the truth behind their disappearance occurs.
Kim Wook is a smooth talker and a good-looking man. He commits fraud to make a living. One day, he happens to arrive at Duon Village, where the missing dead gather. He soon faces numerous mysteries.
Jang Pan Seok is a mysterious figure. He secretly looks for missing people. He is the connection between Duon Village and the outside world. He becomes a fraud partner with Kim Wook and he solves cases.
Lee Jong Ah is Kim Wook’s supporter. She is a white hat hacker out to gain social justice. She works as a low-ranking public officer at a community center as her day job.
Shin Joon Ho is an elite detective. One month prior to his wedding, his fiancée Choi Yeo Na disappears. To find her, he applies for the missing person squad.
I officially declare that I love Crime/Thrillers.
The premise of this show, where all dead people that have been wrongly killed and their bodies hidden are settled in a village waiting for them to be found. It was unusual and absolutely refreshing. It did remind me of Hotel Del Luna but it’s still different.
AN EMOTIONAL ROLLER COASTER
Every character in this had such an intriguing backstory and the show did an amazing job at giving enough screen time to everybody. It was bittersweet and I absolutely cried a hundred times every time the missing was found. The one that hit me the most was the story of the police officer and his fiance .. 🙁 They deserved so much better in life
CRIME SOLVING WITH A SUPERNATURAL TWIST
Having some supernatural element paired with solving crimes is quite common in K dramas and every single time it is some new element that they highlight. This one, the main character has an ability to see these people that are missing and tries to help them. I love how things get personal for him. There is like this major crime angle which is the reason for most of the people in that village to go missing. However, there are a few crimes that were quite sad too. Especially the one with the guy that died at war.
RATING : 4.0/5.0
This was absolutely amazing. It does have some cliche of the grandma finding her long lost heir and stuff like that.. Why does someone have to always be super rich in K dramas. 😛 Overall though, I enjoyed it. I watched it in real time and every episode kept me wanting more
