There is definitely a fantasy element to this kdrama. The notion of a village comprised of the missing dead is a unique one, I can’t really think of an equivalent in dramaland. Maybe in Kingdom: Season 2, although it really was a village of zombies actually 😋. I’m interested to see what relationships the characters have with each other as this will probably contain no romance, but maybe some bromance or sismance?
