The Village: Achiara's Secret: Episode 1

Village: Secret of Achiara launched today on SBS, and I was looking forward to seeing whether the show could maintain the creaky, eerie ambiance promised by the promos. I may be a wimp with the scary stuff, but I still want ghostly thrillers to scare me effectively, even if it means I have to watch through my fingers half the time.
I give the show a tentative go; the premiere of Village wasn’t an outright home run for me, but I find enough about it compelling and intriguing—the execution can be a little rough around the edges but the story has a strong setup. This is the kind of show that’s so dependent on mood and suspense to keep it going that I really, really hope it can keep up the mystery—once it loses that tension, it’ll all unravel. But right now the world is interesting, the characters are all satisfyingly suspicious, and I want to know where we’re going with this. Onward!
SONG OF THE DAY
