First BTS Stills of “Arang and the Magistrate” and Character Descriptions
by joonni on June 22, 2012
MBC has released the first BTS stills of its upcoming drama, Arang and the Magistrate. The stills are from episode 1, when Arang and the magistrate, Kim Eun Oh, meet for the first time. Apparently we are going to see Arang on rooftops a lot. Poor Shin Mina. Also pictured is Lee Junki with actor Kwon Oh Joong who plays Eun Oh’s manservant.
Reports say that Lee Junki is the mood maker on set, making everyone laugh. He certainly does look bright. He uploaded the picture below onto his twitter.
These are the character descriptions for Eun Oh and Arang.
Eun Oh is plunged into a mysterious world upon meeting Arang while searching for his mother who suddenly disappeared. He has a lot of scars inside so while he appears cynical and cold on the outside, deep in his heart he is a warm person.
Arang is a scatterbrained ghost who is trying to reveal the truth behind her unjust death. She is different from the usual ghost characters. She is very energetic, cynical, and rough. She does want she wants to do. But all this is very lovable.
The character descriptions sound pretty typical but I look forward to the story and how these character types play out in this weird situation. It seems like Arang will provide a lot of the comedy. I’m glad the drama isn’t going to be too serious.
interesting photos, looking forward to this. 😀
Hi Joonni, some questions popped up in my brain and i need brief explanation on it.
1. Do you notice the symbol next to their names? Does it have certain meaning or it’s just some decoration?
2. May I know Lee Jun Ki and Shin Min Ah twitter?
This drama looks promising, I hope I can watch it live when it airs (although i don’t understand korean yet).
Last….thank you for sharing the stills
They look like flowers but I don’t know. I can’t identify them.
Lee Junki’s twitter is @JGshock
I don’t think Shin Mina has one.
Thank you for the twitter.
About the symbol, i’ll save it for later, who knows *wink*
the BTS looks awesome.. i am certainly watching this.. 😉 Shin Min Ah as ghost is pure casting genius,, she sure has this supernatural vibe around her…
l’m actually not fan of both even LJK is extremely cute and SMN, as always, very pretty. However, let’s see the drama first, who knows that l’ll fall in love with them as l’m stupidly crazy in love with that two lovebirds from Queen In Hyun’s man. YIN and JHW not as famous as this two LJK and SMN but they’ve taken away outnumbered fans out there.
Hope this drama will be one ‘a must watch’ for me since after QIHM ended, l only have BIG, others drama airing now are just not for me.
So Jooni, keep up your good work, l’ll check any your new post twice a day. Really like your blog and to know that you really passionate for QIHM like l am.
She looks carefree and troubled also cool and pretty. I can tell I will like her character the most. Not a fans of LJK, I hope his character is not the usual cold namja.
Thanks for these, too. Haven’t seen some of them anywhere.
To those who do not love LJK, I think if you watch him in a serious-er role than My Girl, Iljimae or Heroes, you will understand everyone’s deep affection for this actor.
When he is intense, he’s just mesmerizing. Imma make a header from a still from TBDaW that I love…(There goes another coupla hours in “staring at LJK-land”…)
Completely agree with you regarding LJK. I know i should not ask – but is it possible to have the header of LJK from TBDW made by Imma here? Would love to see that….
Looking at the photos i believe that Shin Mina can do “coarse” or rough – the way she sits on top of the roof has some attitude…
I agree on Shin Mina. Those who only know her from Gumiho miss that there is a lot more to her than adorable. Her film work was more varied.
For me, the best LJK project was “Virgin Snow” – I fell completely under his spell in that one. He was adorable and Aoi Miyazaki was breathtakingly beautiful. Can’t wait to see this! Thanks Joonni!
Thanks Joonni… super excited for this show… I love Lee Junki and I adore Shi Min Ah’s acting ang beauty…
This is my most anticipated drama since I love Junki in all the movies I’ve watched. I think he’s quite versatile and nail roles with a deftness that is a pleasure to watch. I haven’t watched anything with Shin Minah yet (but I’m forever jealous of her for her series of CM with my ultimate Korean oppa aka. Won Bin) but she has dimples to die for and I love the ‘tude she has chilling on that roof top there. If done right, this story has all the possibility of being amazing but the last time time I look forward to a Kdrama, I got Mary Stays out All Night and I’m still so bitter about that. =/
p.s: 3 weeks later and I still don’t think anyone can rock the Joseon garb like Hyun Woo. Even the very pretty Junki. QIHM, SEE WHAT YOU DID TO ME?! Nothing will ever be good enough after you now! *sob*
me too, can’t think and watch about another drama but QIM. Everyday, I’m watching QIM again, searching informantion Inhuyn Couple. QIM made me crazy and chaos…..
I love how Shin Mina looks on the roof.
FROM THE DESCRIPTION ABOVE: I JUST HOPE SHE’S NOT HIS MOTHER OMGOD. THAT WILL BE TOTALLY SUCKY AND SHITTY
skgfjskdfjdksg totallyyyy totalllllly waiting for this! (Lee Junki plus Shin Minah = AKFJAKDFJDAKFJDAK)
I am also curious as to how are they gonna end this series I REALLY REALLY HOPE IT’S A HAPPY (and memorable) ONE
it will suck if I’m gonna see the ff:
1. After Shin Minah discovered the reason behind her death, she rested in peace. END. (fuck the writers!… if this will be the case. I NEED SOME ROMANCE OKAYYY)
2. Lee JunKi will die with whatever cause just to be together as ghosts (Again, fuck the writers. I don’t wanna see ghost couples on my effffffin screen!!!! I WANNA SEE THEM AS WARM AND HOT AS THEY ARE LOL)
3. SHIN MINAH IS JUNKI’S MOM COS APPARENTLY SHE WAS RAPED BY SOME LOWLIFE OUT THERE BEFORE SHE GOT MURDERED (///wrists)
HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHA I’M SUCH A WEIRDO sorry
Junki’s mother would be much older by the time of her disappearance than the age of Shin Mina’s ghost character so I don’t think we have to fear that.
