With their municipality scheduled to be flooded to make way for the construction of a new dam, the devout denizens of a rural village have placed their faith in Choi Gyung Seok, a church elder who promises to relocate the flock. Choi tells the villagers they will build a church and a new housing development where they will all be able to live together after the town is completely submerged. He also says that only 144,000 people can go to heaven, and that church offerings are mandatory if one wants to "secure their spot." Even the town's much-revered Reverend Sung, a young and good-looking minister who seemingly has the ability to heal the sick, approves of Choi's plans. Behind his guise of devotion, however, Choi is a practiced con man posing as a representative of a fake religion; his true aim is to defraud the villagers of their resettlement compensation. The only obstacle to the scheme is Kim MinChul, a skeptical outcast who accidentally discovers evidence of Choi's past misdeeds and suddenly finds himself becoming the center of resistance against the church institution.

Cast & Credits
This drama is about saving a village from the religious cult. There is an amazing plot and screenplay.
It is a slow paced screenplay in the first half of the drama.Then when comes to second half each episode was fantastic.
Acting : Everyone of them acted so well in this drama. i can't see as main protagonist/antagonist in this drama. Each one of them plays an important role. The relationship between the villagers was well portrayed by the characters. Especially i liked the voice of the actor.
Plot:The screenplay for the plot of religious cult formation in the village is too good. The screenplay of the final episode was fantastic. What happens to the people after they get scammed was depicted beautifully in the whole episode. How it changed their lives and how they are living in their life thereafter because of that incident.
Music: The background music was nice.
Message delivered by this drama:
1. People believed the words from the person who seems to be good as true even though it is a lie.
2. People thought the words from the arrogant person as lie even though it is true .
3. Some people they cannot believe what is right or wrong as they chose believe themselves ( pastor character)
Viewers do not expect romantic and fluffiness in this drama. Those who want to watch religious cult and dark drama will enjoy it.
story: a con-man setting up in a small town before they are to be flooded for reconstruction of their land. not only speaks to displacement but also of seizing land and not caring about people. it's sad. they don't have much money and hope and each other is all they have. their community is beautiful but vulnerable. so that means someone can take it.
acting/cast: good. never seen uhm tae gu ever. a) he's hot (LOL) b) he's incredible. kim young min was fantastic. elder choi. jin sook. esom has gotten better. there's nothing to distract you
music: i literally never paid attn i know music and sound are important but i just....for certain stories they aren't integral. this is one of them.
rewatch value: i don't know. it's subjective, i don't think that makes our breaks the drama. plenty of things i'd never watch ever again. i think what mdl means is it entertaining enough for you to re-watch and not get bored. i don't think i'd rewatch it but it's up to you.'
overall: ok so it's like........a slice of a life drama. but what if in this life you were poor and in-and-out of jail and basically everyone hated you because they don't know the real you. and people are unsure of themselves. and....if a con-man tries to set up shop in your city to exploit its inhabitants. the drama takes us through it.
i know people say that maybe they shouldn't have named this 'save me 2' but they should have. they're two sides of the same coin. it questions reality and our beliefs and shows a society where poor people bear the brunt of change with no say. it's interesting. nothing about this could not happen in real life honestly. like there are crazier stories and it's plausible. and that's the sad part.
imo, it's a happy ending. because we have to continue. i think it's a much more emotionally responsive peace to the previous season and i think we all get to feel like woolchori is in us....
and to reiterate....uhm tae gu did. what. he. had. to. do.
