On the set of Arang and the Magistrate

Could there be a cuter ghost in all of dramaland? I don’t know if Shin Mina’s spectre can top her gumiho, but I sort of love that she’s got the market cornered on spunky supernatural creatures who are misunderstood. The myths and legends got it wrong, don’tcha know? I can’t wait for this show to start, if even to just find out what part of its fantasy-melo-comedy-sageuk DNA is its most dominant. I hope they don’t skimp on the fantasy part of that equation. I want my ghosts to be ghosty!

In a recent interview on the set of Arang and the Magistrate, Shin Mina was asked about her mysterious tattoo, which you may have noticed in some of the promo stills. It’s a complex pattern tattooed on her neck, and when asked about its meaning she said, “It’s a secret. I can’t tell you about Arang’s tattoo. But it has to do with her memory loss.” Oooh. Intriguing.

Her character was wrongfully killed, but apparently in the afterlife, she has no memory of how she got so dead. It’s a nice mystery for her and for us, since uncovering the truth about her circumstance (ghostdom and all) and eventually her murder will be the focal point of the story. To that end the hero, our magistrate Lee Jun-ki, will lead the charge. He said of working with Shin Mina, “Just spending every day stuck together makes me happy.” Aw. How cute are you?

And below is some fan art using the promo stills and character descriptions for Arang the plucky, cynical ghost and Eun-ho the cold-on-the-outside-warm-on-the-inside new magistrate in town.

The 20-episode Arang and the Magistrate premieres Wednesday July 25 on MBC, following I Do, I Do.

I'm really looking forward to this one. But man with Shin Mina and Lee Junki, that is a whole lot of pretty on one screen. Seriously those are two beautiful people. Everytime I see the stills that's all I can think.

Same here - both of them are beautiful, but not in the conventional way - they both have an other-worldly look about them. And they are both fabulous actors so I am really looking forward to this one.

Shin Mina is.. gah. So pretty. No, she's beautiful.

When some people don't see how beautiful she is, I go all Hannibal Lecter on them: "You looked, but didn't see."

I'm hoping this will be more comedy-fantasy-melo (just a bit).

I already know it's a saeguk, but I don't want to FEEL like I'm watching one...if that makes sense....

Never watched a proper sageuk before, so I can't tell, but this one veers definitely towards the fusion genre.

Remember how Sungkyunkwan Scandal wasn't your usual sageuk? Well, add fantasy to that (and what looks like a wonderfreakingbeautiful cinematography), and I'm pretty sure we won't be given dusty museum pieces.

I trust them to make the watching entertaining (and you may agree that with both Shin Mina and Lee Jun-ki onboard, we could hardly ask for more)

“Just spending every day stuck together makes me happy.” - Lee Jun Ki.

Nooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!! You're mine Jun ki! I was worried about this. Before this drama was ever announced I wanted them to be the leads in a drama, but then thought better of it b/c he might fall in love with Shin Min Ah. Sorry...Ma Ri's delusional tendencies are rubbing off on me :)

Extra ordinary beautiful. Yesterday tvn, has shown the most natural beauty celebrity in korea. By discovering, their old pictures, is they even undergo plastic surgery etc. Teh rumors of them having plastic surgery is all flying in the thin air. False rumors.

among them is song hye gyo, ha ji won, soong jong ki and of course no doubt shin min ah.

Shin mina is very pretty she didnt have to try. My fav drama of her should be a love to kill. For those who thought cant struck by her acting that one is just did it for me.

She immersed with ten charcter and emotions so much despite the writing is a bit down on the end. But i started hating her in the drama but ended loving her so much. Until now, im soo jun and shin mina is my top fav.

I'm thinking of doing recaps for this drama for my new blog. I wanted this drama cycle to end first so there would be a fresh batch of dramas to pick from. This would also be the first sageuk I'm going to watch.

From the making of video, they both seemed very businesslike, and professional about this show.
I don't mean they weren't having fun, because they were, but you can tell they take their craft seriously.

I am sooooo looking forward to this. Between the two of them, I don't know who to love more.

Memory loss is cool. Uncovering cute ghost's death is cool.

As long as it's not Jun Ki's family or something that caused her death. Can someone put a ban on family secrets in kdramas?

Yeah, Shin Mina is just incredibley cute on top of being completely gorgeous. A few years back, I took a shot at watching a drama called 'Punch' and her sweet and charming character (not to mention the dimples!) had me within seconds. Didn't even wait for it to be completely subbed to follow her from episode to episode. And Lee Jun-ki will always be "Iljamie' to me. I wish that they'd have him do his own sequel with the plucky little Lee Young-ah and get the ending right this time! ;)

Looking forward to this drama...

'Punch' is an underappreciated drama from SMA's early days.

She and Joo Jin mo had a lot of chemistry and SMA was just oozing that cute charm of hers; aside from the stylist giving SMA dreads as her hairstyle, the stylist got it right, dressing SMA in sporty casual (sporty casual never looked so good).

Man, I wish I knew what to expect. I LOVED MGIAG, but I don't like things that end sadly. And this has a lot of potential to do that. Seeing as she is... dead. :P If I knew that it would have a happy ending I would watch it in a heartbeat!

Shin Mina, you might the most beautiful actress and ghost in Korea even in the world, but would you please stay away from my Lee Joongi at least 10 meters haha... no, kidding, i just get more and more jealous ㅜㅜ

I watch the MBC section TV for arang and the magistrate and both of them are toooooooo gorgeous and adorable to see, gah!!!

And there's scene when Lee Joongi was walking with Shin Mina following him, then they met the shaman girl who cannot look arang, and Lee Joongi with cute expression pointed to her "there, she is right there!" (He acted like she is the most disgusted thing in the world!

When I saw it I just, "where is time machine? I am going to July 25the, right now!!!!"
