I finally got a chance to watch the first two episodes of Arang and the Magistrate, and what can I say? I adore it. It’s a wonderful combination of comedy and mystery, and the drama speeds along, not wasting a single scene.
After reading these character descriptions, I am even more excited. Eun-Oh, the character that Lee Junki is playing, is not what I expected from the original short taglines.
Interestingly, English translations of the main character descriptions were already available at the official website. The translations are clunky but they could be worse. Read more
The official poster for the upcoming Joseon era fantasy romance action drama, Arang and the Magistrate, has been released and it looks awesome. The tagline reads, “A relationship that started like it was destiny; a reality/truth greater than the imagination.” Shin Mina, as Arang the maiden ghost, floats in the air as Lee Junki, as the magistrate Eun Oh, reaches out for her. I love the forest background in the poster. That forest looks amazing in the trailer with all the crooked trees. It looks so eerie, perfect for ghosts to be hanging around. Read more

I’m itching to do a recap so I’m really excited for the start of the upcoming dramas, Arang and the Magistrate, Faith, and Nice Guy. There hasn’t been much promotional material for Faith and Nice Guy so I’m devouring up Arang for now. Here is Shin Mina looking gorgeous for the July issue of High Cut. The concept of the photo shoot is “Black Swan” although I don’t see what’s so black swan about the photos except maybe the fierce gaze? Supposedly she is channeling a Lolita look for the cover photo with the veil. I see that but what’s black swan got to do with Lolita?
