What really happened in the White Night Village 28 years ago?
This is the key question to be answered in TVN’s exciting mystery drama. “Wake up”- and with each new episode the drama seems to race closer to the terrible truth.
As the veil of secrecy that surrounds White Night Village slowly begins to loosen, here are three mysterious characters to keep an eye out for in future episodes:
1. Moon Jae Woong
From his first appearance in the drama, Moon Jae Woong (played by Yoon Sun Woo) fascinated the audience with its dark and mysterious aura. The cautious, visibly fearful character lives isolated from the rest of society and is abused by Jang Yong Sik, the CEO of the portal site MODU (played by) Jang Hyuk Jin).
Viewers have begun to speculate that Moon Jae Woong could be one of the children from the White Night Village who were forced to undergo inhuman experiments. The character seems to have some of the distinctive traits that the village kids share: he previously displayed superhuman strength without realizing it, and he also showed his extraordinary intelligence when he found out which hospital Jamie (Lee Chung Ah) was made to use only her body measurements and the time and place she was found.
It remains to be seen whether Moon Jae Woong is really from the White Night Village – and what role he will play in the upcoming story.
2. Gong Il Do.
Gong Il Do (played by Kim Chang Wan), the father of Gong Hye Won (AOA‘S Seolhyun), one of the most suspicious characters in history has emerged. In the final episode of the drama, it turned out that he was no ordinary researcher, but the mastermind who ran a secret research laboratory with the White Night Foundation. He was also found to be still performing the human experiments that were done in the past at the White Night Village.
After showing his true colors, Gong Il Do piqued the curiosity of the audience by mysteriously explaining, “To achieve what the Foundation has long wanted, we need to capture Do Jung Woo[[[[Namgoong min]]no matter what.”
3. Oh Jung Hwan
Previously on “Awaken” it became clear that Son Min Ho, the director of the White Night Village (played by Choi Jin Ho), was just a farmer in a much larger scheme. It also turned out that Oh Jung Hwan (played by Kim Tae Woo) is one of the real key figures behind the powerful White Night Foundation.
As the president’s chief of staff, the influential Oh Jung Hwan can control the police, prosecutors and the media at the same time. Son Min Ho also previously announced that Oh Jung Hwan is the only person who knows the identity of the owner of the White Night Foundation.
The producers of “Awaken” teased, “The twists and turns that have developed so far are just the beginning. As the story progresses, the ugly truth of the White Night Village and the White Night Foundation, as well as the intricate relationships between the characters, will unfold. The plot becomes even more shocking when the drama speeds up the pace. Please look forward to it. “
The next episode of “Awaken” will air December 21st at 9pm. KST.
