Directed by Min Yeon-hong, the thriller drama series, Missing The Other Side, will soon release a new episode this week. The plot has been getting more interesting as the truth behind Oh Il-yong and other members of the village has been revealing itself in the last few episodes.
This K-drama was first seen on television on August 29th, 2020. Season one of the show revolved around Kim Wook and Jan Pan-seok, both living people who come across a village full of dead people whose bodies have not been discovered. Named Duon Village, this place was a sort of temporary stay, where children, women, and men would stay until their bodies are found in the living world.
Created by Studio Dragon, the show received over a million views for its last episode. Seeing just how popular the show became, it was brought back for a second season this year, which started airing on December 19th, 2022. This time as well, the show focuses on a similar village, although the cast and stories woven into it are quite different.
Up until now, we’ve seen Kim Wook and Jang Pan-seok solve a handful of cases, all with the help of detective Shin Joon-ho and the ghost, Oh Il-yong. Missing The Other Side has been ordered for around 14 episodes, so we’ll see the crew solving many more cases while also discovering the secrets behind this new village.
