Behind the scenes of Arang and the Magistrate

So adorable. It’s finale week for mystery fusion sageuk Arang and the Magistrate (*sniff, sniff*), so I thought a nice detour backstage would help us all prepare to say goodbye. Unless you’d like to remain in denial; denial’s not so bad. Here’s a boatload of stills from the set of the show, with everyone from hero to reaper to demon hell-spawn… looking utterly adorable and blowing my mind. On what other set would you want to pinch someone’s cheeks and say, Who’s a widdle king of hell?

Behind-the-scenes cuteness is always best on shows like this, where death, darkness, and mayhem are usually the order of the day. I’m still a little weirded out by shots of baddies like Lord Choi or Mom smiling out of character. They’re so cute, but I’m instinctively second-guessing: Is it for real? Can we trust them? But really?

This was such a fun drama, due in large part to a rich world populated by unique characters; it’d be a shame if the cast didn’t have a good time while making it. But it looks like there was a lot of love on set — for allies, foes, and even mascot goats. I’m pretty sure that goat’s got its own fanfic, somewhere out there.

Arang and the Magistrate airs its final two episodes this Wednesday and Thursday. Kings of heaven, hell, and all attendant goats: Give us a good ending, or there’ll be hell to pay.

I know right? My head knows she is an actress, but try telling that to my poor frightened heart. Logic and the ability to separate fiction from reality apparently has no place there :)

And yes I am still in denial... Like I was when Gaksital ended.... I don't want Arang to end but I guess we can't help it.

I just hope that I will cry tears of joy in the end! I don't know who I am going to kill if that drama doesn't get a happy ending!

Oh, I am going to miss them!! My favorite drama of this year so far!

I don't want EO to kill Arang(with Mu-yeon inside), but I have a feeling he will, but still they'll all end up happy even Mu-yeon. Can't wait to see!

I loved the brothers too, the true jin&jang characters!

Why don't you do polygamy and settle the matter. I don't think he'd mind acting like a Joseon King... if you're open to that there are about 600 (Court Lady) positions that could be filled.

The pics where Joo Wal, Lord Choi and Evil Mom are smiling makes me wonder if they went to a good, just direction, they would be smiling like that like a family. (Yeah, yeah, they wouldn't be family-family but if Arang was a sitcom or something.)

And I haven't seen episode 17 and 18 yet, but those happy Moo Yeon - Moo Young moments are so sweet~ That's what they were like before Moo Yeon became evil! :D

Can't decide if ninja JW is hotter than sunglasses. He is so freaking cute. I can't stand it. I can't. I am sitting it.

PS Must have been nice for YSH to take a side seat during this production rather than have to carry a show like OP!

LOL.....even the good endings in Kdrama are typically unsatisfying. The OTP looking at each other and the camera pans off, like wtf, so???
Almost never get to see a love completed...the best ending i have seen so far is Greatest Love. That one leaves you satisfied.

suspect this is the way they get us to continuously watch the dramas.

Love the satto-dooswe bromance too, the one with them smiling at each other in their prison whities is impossible >< Basically love all the photos, all the characters, thanks so much for sharing <3456

I'm really gonna miss the show, the cast, watching the making, browsing the photos and reading everyone's comments. To me, this is really one hell of an example of interactive TV - watching the show and sleuthing out the truth together with the actors and everyone of us.

Already LJG's OST "One More Day" just keeps playing in my head.. If only we could have one more day of the drama...
